[S2M-5690] Decision Time — 7 Mar 2007 at 17:02

This looks like the vote on S2M-5690

The description in the bulletin on 2007-03-06 is:

*S2M-5690 Jim Mather: Economy and Small Business—That the Parliament recognises the need to make the Scottish economy and hence Scottish businesses increasingly competitive and therefore welcomes the SNP’s Small Business Bonus Scheme, which will remove 120,000 small businesses from eligibility to pay business rates and reduce the rates burden on a further 30,000 small businesses by either 25% or 50%, thereby increasing small business viability and bringing increased vibrancy and job opportunity to cities, towns, villages and rural Scotland.
