[S2M-2056] Decision Time — 25 Nov 2004 at 17:07

This looks like the vote on S2M-2056

The description in the bulletin on 2004-11-24 is:

*S2M-2056 Shiona Baird: Supermarkets and the Scottish Food Chain—That the Parliament notes that more than three-quarters of the UK grocery sector is dominated by just four supermarket chains; is concerned about the negative impact that the dominance of supermarkets is having on Scottish farmers, independent retailers, high streets, local economies and consumer choice and health; notes that supermarkets also have significant power to control and lower prices being paid to Scottish producers but fail to translate this into lower prices for consumers; notes the Office of Fair Trading’s report that fear among suppliers of being delisted by the major supermarkets is preventing them from complaining under the current Supermarket Code of Practice; calls for an independent overseer of the code of practice who will proactively ensure that it is enforced and who will protect complainants from reprisals, and further calls for the code of practice to apply to the whole food supply chain in order to ensure fair trade for all. Supported by: Mr Mark Ruskell*, Patrick Harvie*, Mark Ballard*, Robin Harper*, Eleanor Scott*, Chris Ballance*
