Scottish Parliament Wednesday 29 September 1999 (Afternoon) [THE PRESIDING OFFICER opened the meeting at 14:30]
The main business of the afternoon is a debate on motion S1M-171, in the name of Henry McLeish, on a manufacturing and industrial strategy for Scotland. There is also an amendment to the motion.
There are two questions to be put as a result of today's business. The first is, that amendment S1M-171.2, in the name of Mr John Swinney, be agreed to. Are we all agreed?
We move now to members' business. I ask those who are leaving the chamber to do so quickly and, more important, quietly. The final item of business today is the members' business debate on motion...
