[S2M-4329] Decision Time — 4 May 2006 at 17:01

This looks like the vote on S2M-4329

The description in the bulletin on 2006-05-03 is:

*S2M-4329 Shiona Baird: Pledge Against New Nuclear Power Stations in Scotland—That the Parliament notes the interim report of the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) which states "CoRWM takes no position on the desirability or otherwise of nuclear new build. We believe that future decisions on new build should be subject to their own assessment process"; further notes that government advisors on sustainable development have reported that there are issues other than waste management that should rule out new nuclear power, including risk of accident, terrorist threat, security of supply, economic cost and the availability of safe, clean and economic renewable energy and energy efficiency measures; recognises the opposition to nuclear new build in Scotland by the Green, SNP, SSP and Liberal Democrat parties; notes in particular that Nicol Stephen MSP recently stated  "The Liberal Democrats have a tough, clear and consistent position across the UK….We oppose new nuclear power....  the Liberal Democrats remain determined to oppose this year, next year and every year", and calls on all political parties opposed to new nuclear power stations in Scotland to pledge that they will not be part of, or support, a Scottish Executive that allows new nuclear power stations to be built, even if the issue of nuclear waste management may be considered to have been resolved. Supported by: Mr Mark Ruskell*, Eleanor Scott*
