[S2M-3766] Decision Time — 22 Dec 2005 at 14:56

Jim Wallace MP, Orkney Islands abstained

This looks like the vote on S2M-3766

The description in the bulletin on 2005-12-21 is:

*S2M-3766 Frances Curran: "Torture Flights" on Scottish Soil—That the Parliament considers, in light of recent decisions by the governments of Sweden, Spain and Iceland, by the European Union and now by Michael Todd, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police in England, to undertake inquiries into rendition flights, that the Scottish Executive should follow these examples; believes that there are sufficient grounds to justify an independent inquiry into the possible use of Scottish airports by CIA rendition flights, and further believes that the Lord Advocate should instruct the police to investigate without delay whether there has been a breach of Scots Law. Supported by: Ms Rosemary Byrne*
