Mr Charlie Gordon MP, Glasgow Cathcart abstained
This looks like the vote on S2M-5355.5
The description in the bulletin on 2006-12-21 is:
*S2M-5355.5 Maureen Macmillan: Trident—As an amendment to motion (S2M-5355) in the name of Nicola Sturgeon, leave out from "the publication" to end and insert "that the UK Government has initiated a debate on the future of the independent nuclear deterrent force and urges everyone in Scotland to take part in it; recognises that the decisions on national defence are rightly reserved to Westminster; considers that any government has a primary duty to protect the security of its people and that this includes a credible policy on national defence and international security; believes in a shared objective of a world without nuclear weapons and supports further reductions in the global nuclear arsenal; further believes that, in seeking a world free from nuclear weapons, we should utilise and develop our international engagement at every level including at the EU, the United Nations including the UK’s seat on the Security Council, NATO and the G8; notes with concern the plans of the SNP to take Scotland out of the collective security arrangements of the UK and NATO and to establish separate armed forces for Scotland with greatly diminished capabilities either to contribute to international peacekeeping operations or even to defend Scottish interests, and rejects those policies on the grounds that they would threaten the security of Scotland, diminish our armed forces and destroy jobs." Supported by: Scott Barrie*
