This looks like the vote on S1M-3570

The description in the bulletin on 2002-11-13 is:

*S1M-3570 Mr Kenneth Gibson: Poverty-That the Parliament deplores the fact that a quarter of all Scots and a third of all Scottish children live in poverty; accepts that any measure of poverty must satisfy the requirements of being relative and comparable, noting that the Scottish Executive appears to place less emphasis on reducing the incidence of poverty than changing its definition; is aware that the Scottish Executive is limited in its ability to eliminate poverty due to the inadequacy of the powers devolved to Scotland, and believes that the most effective way to tackle poverty in Scotland is to ensure that all powers over tax and spending decisions are transferred from Westminster to the Scottish Parliament. Supported by: Linda Fabiani*, Colin Campbell*, Mr Lloyd Quinan*, Ms Sandra White*
