Motion, as amended, agreed to.


That the Parliament recognises that closing the equal pay gap will benefit all Scots, Scotland's workplaces and Scotland's economy; agrees that it is the responsibility of local authorities as independent bodies to implement the single status pay agreement which they themselves negotiated, and encourages employers and unions to make every effort to reach an agreement that is fair and equitable and protects the staff concerned, council taxpayers and the services that local authorities deliver.
