Amendment disagreed to.

I do not think that Mr Arthur’s vote would have made a difference. If there is any doubt, I ask him to check afterwards that his vote was recorded. I do not think that it would have affected the outcome. I think that it should have been recorded, because 113 members voted.

The next question is, that amendment S5M-08497.4, in the name of Neil Bibby, which seeks to amend motion

S5M-08497, in the name of Humza Yousaf, on the promotion of active travel in Scotland, be agreed to.

Amendment agreed to.

The next question is, that amendment

Motion, as amended, agreed to,

That the Parliament recognises the importance of walking and cycling; welcomes the 100% increase in funding for active travel from £40 million to £80 million from 2018-19 and the appointment of an Active Nation Commissioner in early 2018; notes the work across parties, communities and policy portfolios to make Scotland a healthier and more active nation; further notes with concern research by Sustrans Scotland, which found that 1.1 million people in Scotland occupy datazones where there is a high risk of transport poverty; calls on the Scottish Government to set out how the increased active travel funding will specifically be used to reduce transport poverty; further notes that less than 2% of children cycle to school; considers that equipping people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to cycle from an early age is essential to encouraging them to continue cycling as they get older, and believes that every schoolchild should have the opportunity to benefit from cycle training.
