The result of the division is: For 87, Against 33, Abstentions 0.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.

Resolved, That the Parliament recognises the vital importance of air links and air infrastructure to Scotland and the Scottish economy and acknowledges the potential for economic growth through improved air links; notes that the future of air traffic control and associated issues are a reserved matter outwith the remit of the Parliament, but recognises that there are concerns and that the Liberal Democrats are opposed to the development of the air traffic control system by public private partnership; strongly supports a two centre strategy to protect jobs at Prestwick; underlines the need to give the highest possible priority to air safety, and further notes that during the second reading of the Transport Bill in the House of Commons on 20 December 1999, no Scottish National Party MP spoke in the debate, and only one voted against the second reading of the Bill.

Before I put the eighth question, I advise members that we are running a little late. When we come to members' business, I ask those members who are not staying to leave quietly and quickly, so that we can get on with the debate.

The eighth question is, that motion S1M-486, in the name of Sarah Boyack, on sustainable development, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to.

That the Parliament places sustainable development at the core of its work and commends the Scottish Executive for its commitment to integrate the principles of sustainable development into all Government policies for the benefits it brings to the people of Scotland, now and in the future.

On a point of order. I ask that you check that the voting system is working properly, Presiding Officer, as it is evident that something has gone completely wrong this afternoon. Members of Executive parties have, en masse, voted to oppose the public-private partnership noted in Tavish Scott's amendment. [Laughter.]

While a good try, that was a totally bogus point of order.
