[S2M-2547] Decision Time — 10 Mar 2005 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S2M-2547

The description in the bulletin on 2005-03-09 is:

*S2M-2547 Fiona Hyslop: Early Years Education and Childcare—That the Parliament recognises the vital role of early years education and the importance of quality, accessible childcare in stimulating children’s development and supporting working families in particular and the wider economy and society generally; notes with concern the delay in the publication of the national strategy for early years with provision for a national settlement for nursery nurses from the Scottish Executive; supports the immediate extension of free nursery education for three and four-year-olds to a full half day from the current part-time provision and the extension of "nurture groups" across Scotland for vulnerable young pupils, and recognises, however, that in order for Scotland to be able to shape and deliver comprehensive early education and child care the Scottish government needs to have powers over tax and benefits in order to provide a universal entitlement to emulate the provision of Scandinavian countries who spend four times the proportion of their GDP in support of children in the early years as Scotland.
