This looks like the vote on S3M-173.3

The description in the bulletin on 2007-06-14 is:

*S3M-173.3 Alison McInnes: Carbon Offsetting—As an amendment to motion (S3M-173) in the name of Robin Harper, leave out from first "notes" to end and insert "applauds the introduction by the previous Scottish Government of the first-ever Scottish climate change target to exceed the Scottish share of the UK target by an additional one million tonnes by 2010; notes the intention of the current Scottish Government to introduce a climate change Bill; believes that this Bill and other government action should set challenging and achievable targets for reducing carbon emissions of at least 12.5% by 2010 and 60% by 2050; further notes the SNP manifesto commitment to annual targets to reduce carbon emissions; welcomes the commitment to a climate change Bill but believes that early action should be taken in advance of the Bill to improve energy eficiency, reduce energy use and support microgeneration; further believes that the public sector should take the lead by ensuring that all Scottish Government buildings and transport become carbon neutral by 2012; considers that carbon offsetting should normally be viewed as a last resort as a carbon reduction measure, and is concerned that the SNP Government’s transport plans and opposition to public transport plans will render existing and future plans to reduce carbon emissions unattainable."
