[S1M-700] Decision Time — 30 Mar 2000 at 17:01

This looks like the vote on S1M-700

The description in the bulletin on 2000-03-29 is:

*S1M-700 Tommy Sheridan: Scottish Service Tax—That the Parliament supports the principle of progressive taxation on social, economic and moral grounds and, in pursuit of a redistributive and progressive system of local taxation, agrees to refer the Scottish Service Tax proposal to the Local Government Committee for inclusion in any further review it may conduct into local government finance.

Text Introducing Division:

The third question is, that motion S1M-700, in the name of Tommy Sheridan, on a Scottish service tax, as amended, be agreed to. Are we all agreed? That is agreed.

No, it is not.

For once, I have to ask members to be a little more vocal. There will be a division.
