On a point of order. I believe that I might be the one member who voted against the amendment in the first vote. I tried to correct that.

That has now been registered in the Official Report .

On a point of order. Presiding Officer, you will find that Mr Jenkins is wrong and that the vote against the amendment that was registered was mine.

I am sure that Mr Jenkins will thank you for that clarification, Mr Sheridan.

The result of the division is: For 79, Against 34, Abstentions 1.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.

Resolved, That the Parliament regrets the determination of the SNP to promote an agenda designed to wreck rather than address the issues for which the Parliament is responsible; recognises and supports the current constitutional settlement, which was endorsed by a referendum of the Scottish people and which leaves immigration policy in the hands of the Home Secretary, and accordingly notes that the Home Secretary is the proper person to take the decision on whether Mike Tyson should be allowed into this country and, whilst recognising the widespread concerns, in this Parliament and elsewhere, about the proposed visit, believes that this Parliament should use its time to discuss and to take decisions on matters within its competence and so help to build a Scotland true to the values of fairness, equality and justice, and supports the work of the Scottish Executive in tackling domestic abuse and supporting its victims, in particular in developing effective intervention and service provision to prevent male violence against women and their children.
