The description in the bulletin on 1999-06-16 is:
*S1M-52.1 Donald Gorrie: As an amendment to the motion (S1M-00052) in the name of Donald Dewar, leave out all after "Parliament" and insert "(a) sets up a special committee consisting of the members of the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body (SPCB) and six other members chosen by the SPCB to work during the summer recess on the matters set out in (b) and (c) below; (b) instructs the special committee to commission a study by an independent organisation recommended by RIBA of the existing plans, realistic possibilities, costs and arguments for and against the potential sites for the Parliament at Holyrood, Calton Hill/Regent Road and the Mound, to be presented to the special committee before the end of the summer recess; (c) empowers the special committee, if it is convinced that the Holyrood scheme clearly offers the best option, to instruct work on the scheme to proceed with any modifications agreed by the committee, and, if it believes that another site is preferable or that there is no clear preferred site, or that the Holyrood site scheme should be pursued at high quality and increased costs over those set out in the Presiding Officer’s note to members of 9 June 1999, to present all the relevant information to the Parliament for a decision as early as possible after the summer recess; (d) instructs the Holyrood Project Team to continue with any work, such as archaeological or site preparation works, which will be of value whatever the future of the site, but not to let any construction related contracts proceed until the special committee or the Parliament authorises it to do so; (e) instructs the SPCB to negotiate an appropriate timetable with the Holyrood Project Team if the Holyrood site is chosen by the special committee." Supported by Margo Macdonald.
Text Introducing Division:
The first question is, that amendment S1M-52.1, in the name of Donald Gorrie, be agreed to. Are we all agreed?
In that case, there will be a division. Members should vote yes to agree to the amendment, no to disagree to the amendment or abstain to record an abstention. Members should vote now.
