[S2M-3543] Decision Time — 10 Nov 2005 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S2M-3543

The description in the bulletin on 2005-11-09 is:

*S2M-3543 Richard Lochhead: Energy Policy—That the Parliament considers it unacceptable that in energy-rich Scotland fuel poverty blights our society; notes with concern that, despite Scotland possessing massive energy resources, urgent action is required to avoid an energy gap in the next decade; calls for the development of an energy policy for Scotland that will deliver security of supply, affordability, self-sufficiency and energy efficiency; recognises that the transmission charges for power generators, as permitted by the UK Government, will undermine these objectives; rejects nuclear power in favour of an energy mix that includes making Scotland the world leader in renewable energy and carbon capture and storage technology; believes that such a policy will boost our economy and meet our environmental obligations, and recognises that the Scottish Parliament requires the necessary energy powers and control over our oil and gas resources to deliver the nation’s energy needs in the 21st century.

Text Introducing Division:

The amendments in the names of Alex Johnstone and Shiona Baird have been pre-empted, so the next question is, that motion S2M-3543, in the name of Richard Lochhead, on energy policy, as amended, be agreed to. Are we agreed?


There will be a division.
