[S3M-2780] Decision Time — 30 Oct 2008 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S3M-2780

The description in the bulletin on 2008-10-29 is:

*S3M-2780 Jeremy Purvis: A Helping Hand with the Rising Cost of Living—That the Parliament notes with grave concern the rise in the cost of living and the impact of the credit crunch on families, individuals and small businesses in Scotland; believes that the Scottish Government should use the substantial levers at its disposal to give practical help; disagrees with the policy stated in the Draft Budget 2009-10 that "the Scottish Government will not use the existing tax varying powers in 2009-10", and believes that all parties should work to secure a 2p reduction in the basic rate of Scottish income tax, which would deliver more than £300 per year into the pay packet of the average Scottish earner and a significant fiscal stimulus to the economy.
