This looks like the vote on S2M-4073

The description in the bulletin on 2006-03-08 is:

*S2M-4073 Miss Annabel Goldie: Drug Abuse—That the Parliament notes the increasing drugs problem in Scotland which has seen rises in the number of drug-related deaths and drug-related crimes; recognises that drug abuse destroys lives, tears families apart, leads to widespread and recurring crime and the disintegration of entire communities; believes that there should be a zero tolerance drugs strategy which aims to rid Scotland of drugs; believes that such a strategy should place an emphasis on early intervention and include a coherent education programme which prioritises abstinence, and believes that there needs to be a change in the help offered to drug addicts, away from an over-reliance on methadone and towards a drug-free lifestyle.

Text Introducing Division:

In that case, the amendments in the name of Stewart Stevenson and Tommy Sheridan fall. Therefore, the next question is, that motion S2M-4073, in the name of Annabel Goldie, on drug abuse, as amended, be agreed to. Are we agreed?


There will be a division.
