[S1M-2606] Decision Time — 16 Jan 2002 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S1M-2606

The description in the bulletin on 2002-01-15 is:

*S1M-2606 Mr Kenny MacAskill: Scotland's Railways-That the Parliament notes that the Executive's neglect and lamentable lack of vision and strategy for Scotland's railways has contributed to a deterioration of rail services in Scotland to the point at which they have become amongst the worst in Europe; further notes that the Strategic Rail Authority's new strategic plan offers nothing new for Scotland; believes that Scottish railways must be fully controlled by, and accountable to, the Scottish Parliament, and therefore calls upon the Executive to take responsibility for delivering a strategy for the running and operation of Scotland's rail network.
