[S3M-1018] Decision Time — 13 Dec 2007 at 17:40

This looks like the vote on S3M-1018

The description in the bulletin on 2007-12-12 is:

*S3M-1018 Ross Finnie: Sport and Young People—That the Parliament rejects the case for the abolition of sportscotland; notes the importance of grass-roots sport and the opportunities that currently exist to increase sporting participation and enhance sporting performance, particularly among young people, in Scotland as we look forward to the London Olympics of 2012 and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games of 2014; recognises that sportscotland has established itself as an effective arms-length body for distributing both Treasury and lottery funding as well as successfully performing important co-ordinating and strategic functions in the development of integrated sporting performance pathways, and therefore calls for sportscotland to be retained.
