[S2M-1091] Decision Time — 25 Mar 2004 at 17:01

This looks like the vote on S2M-1091

The description in the bulletin on 2004-03-24 is:

*S2M-1091 Mr Mark Ruskell: GM Crops-That the Parliament notes with concern the preliminary legal opinion of independent counsel that the Scottish Executive had discretion to use legal powers to refuse the next stage of GM maize commercialisation which it chose not to exercise; calls for the Executive to review its own legal advice on which its decision over GM maize was based and to reassess the extent of its discretion accordingly, and calls on the Executive to put on hold the decision on final consent to the placement of GM maize on the UK National Seeds List, at least until it has reported back to the Parliament on the outcome of such a legal review and satisfied the Parliament that the most legally-restrictive policy possible toward GM commercialisation has been used. Supported by: Patrick Harvie*, Mark Ballard*
