This looks like the vote on S1M-154.2

The description in the bulletin on 1999-09-16 is:

*S1M-154.2 Fiona Hyslop: Homelessness—As an amendment to motion (S1M-154) in the name of Ms Wendy Alexander, leave out from ‘the Scottish’ to end and insert ‘tackling homelessness is one of the major challenges facing it, that it supports the Rough Sleepers Initiative and welcomes the Scottish Executive’s continuing support for it, and that it recognises that rough sleeping is only one aspect of homelessness and that any initiative designed to tackle it can only deal with the reality of rough sleeping not the causes behind it; calls upon the Scottish Executive to make the newly established Homelessness Taskforce a priority and to bring forward early measures to deal with the causes of homelessness, new regulations to help homeless people and new legislative proposals to bring homelessness legislation up to date; believes that Executive time is required for early legislation to deal with homelessness and housing in general, and calls upon the Scottish Executive to bring forward the proposed publishing date of a draft housing bill to the end of 1999.’
