[S3M-3994] Decision Time — 29 Apr 2009 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S3M-3994

The description in the bulletin on 2009-04-28 is:

*S3M-3994 Alex Neil: Housing—That the Parliament notes the steps being taken by the Scottish Government to accelerate and increase the supply of affordable housing in response to the current economic downturn; recognises the record investment being made this year; further notes that housing associations still have to secure through borrowing a significant proportion of the money required to build new housing and are facing challenges from the financial sector; also notes the Scottish Government’s initiative to kick-start a new generation of council house building and the increasing contribution that this is enabling local authorities to make in meeting housing need, which complements the high level of social housing built by housing associations over the last 10 years, and supports proposals in the consultation on the draft Housing (Scotland) Bill to reform the right to buy to encourage council house building and to safeguard Scotland’s stock of social housing for the benefit of future generations of tenants. Supported by: Nicola Sturgeon*

I definitely heard a "no" then. There will be a division.
