[S2M-3795] Decision Time — 12 Jan 2006 at 17:03
This looks like the vote on S2M-3795
The description in the bulletin on 2006-01-11 is:
*S2M-3795 Mr John Swinney: Local Government Finance—That the Parliament notes the widespread concern over the inadequacy of the local government finance settlement for 2006-07 and 2007-08; notes the recommendations of the Finance Committee that the Scottish Executive should reconsider the settlement; welcomes the moves to make government more efficient but calls for this process to be applied equitably across national and local government and conducted with greater rigour; calls on the Executive to restore the £58.5 million in efficiency savings to local government baselines and to make available to local authorities £34.7 million from the pre-Budget report consequentials on condition that this is used to deliver a real-terms freeze in council tax, and recognises that these are short-term improvements to the unfair council tax that will only be resolved when the system is abolished and replaced by a local income tax based on the ability to pay.
Text Introducing Division:
The second question is, that motion S2M-3795, in the name of John Swinney, on local government finance, as amended, be agreed to. Are we agreed?
