[S2M-2158] Decision Time — 16 Dec 2004 at 17:08

This looks like the vote on S2M-2158

The description in the bulletin on 2004-12-15 is:

*S2M-2158 Miss Annabel Goldie: Justice Issues with Specific Relevance to Reoffending—That the Parliament notes the unacceptable rate of reoffending occurring in Scotland today; accepts that there is a place in our criminal justice system for a range of different sentencing options to address this problem but recognises that when a prison sentence is the appropriate disposal then prison is not simply a punishment but is intended to rehabilitate, deter and protect the public; believes that the way to reduce reoffending and subsequently the prison population is to reduce the overall incidence of crime in Scotland, and therefore calls on the Scottish Executive to increase the police presence in our communities to deter and detect crime and to end automatic early release from our prisons to ensure honesty in sentencing. Supported by: Margaret Mitchell*
