[S2M-4363] Decision Time — 11 May 2006 at 16:59

This looks like the vote on S2M-4363

The description in the bulletin on 2006-05-10 is:

*S2M-4363 Mr John Swinney: Council Tax and Pensioner Poverty—That the Parliament recognises that the council tax is an unfair tax which is based neither on income nor on the ability to pay; further notes that the council tax, which has increased by over 60% since 1997, discriminates against those on a fixed income, particularly the elderly; notes that means-tested council tax benefit has failed to help many of the elderly, in particular older owner-occupiers, and calls for the abolition of the unfair council tax and its replacement by a local income tax based on the ability to pay. Motions and amendments which have attracted additional support
