The description in the bulletin on 2004-11-04 is:

*S2M-1940.1 Mary Scanlon: A Better Deal for Pensioners—As an amendment to motion (S2M-1940) in the name of Nicola Sturgeon, leave out from "believes" to end and insert "condemns the Chancellor’s promotion of the means test which acts as a major disincentive to save; believes that linking the basic state pension to earnings would lift a million pensioners out of means-testing over a four year period; calls for greater measures to encourage personal savings, and acknowledges that only a Conservative administration at Westminster can implement these changes for the benefit of all Scotland’s pensioners."

Text Introducing Division:

As amendment S2M-1940.5 is not agreed to, the other amendments to the motion stand. The second question is, that amendment S2M-1940.1, in the name of Mary Scanlon, which seeks to amend motion S2M-1940, in the name of Nicola Sturgeon, on a better deal for pensioners, be agreed to. Are we agreed?


There will be a division.
