[S3M-5118] Decision Time — 5 Nov 2009 at 17:02

This looks like the vote on S3M-5118

The description in the bulletin on 2009-11-04 is:

*S3M-5118 Murdo Fraser: Minimum Pricing of Alcohol—That the Parliament recognises that alcohol misuse cost Scottish society an estimated £2.25 billion in 2006-07, with almost one in three men and one in five women exceeding the recommended maximum level of consumption per week; believes that Scotland needs to examine its complex relationship with alcohol; further believes that to address this problem Scotland needs to take action that is properly targeted, effective, evidence based, and legally competent, and, accordingly, rejects the Scottish Government policy of minimum pricing on the basis that it will penalise responsible drinkers and damage Scotland’s vital drinks industry.
