3. The Scottish Economy: The Deputy First Minister and Minister for Enterprise and Lifelong Learning (Mr Jim Wallace) moved S2M-287—That the Parliament supports the objective of achieving long term, sustainable growth in the Scottish economy; endorses the Scottish Executive's strategy, set out in A Smart, Successful Scotland and A Partnership for A Better Scotland, as the best means of helping to achieve this growth; welcomes the support of Scottish business and academia for this strategy; recognises the need to create a spirit of entrepreneurship, promote innovations and encourage sensible risk taking; believes this can be achieved by building on the strength of our education system and research and development capability and through development of specific initiatives such as Enterprise in Education and the Green Jobs Strategy; reaffirms the Scottish Executive's commitment to remain focused on the delivery of this strategy while being responsive to ways in which it can be enhanced and refined, and looks forward to delivering increased prosperity as the basis for first-class service and a socially just Scotland.

Mr John Swinney moved amendment S2M-287.2 to motion S2M-287—

Leave out from "endorses" to end and insert—

"recognises the enormous potential of the Scottish people; accepts that Westminster control of Scotland’s economic policy has been disastrous for Scottish living standards, population and national self-esteem; notes that, to reverse that trend, the Scottish government must create the maximum competitive advantage for the Scottish economy, and therefore calls on all parties to work together to win for the Parliament the full powers that all independent countries enjoy, in order to create a competitive advantage and the conditions for a prosperous and just Scotland."

After debate, the amendment was disagreed to ((DT) by division: For 25, Against 92, Abstentions 1).

Murdo Fraser moved amendment S2M-287.1 to motion S2M-287—

Leave out from "endorses" to end and insert—

"notes, however, the poor performance of the economy with levels of growth lower than the rest of the United Kingdom, falling levels of business start-ups, rising levels of business failure and job losses in the private sector; recognises that the objective of long-term, sustainable growth is currently being hindered by high non-domestic rates, increased business water charges and a heavy burden of corporate regulation, and calls on the Scottish Executive to use its existing powers to reduce the business rate poundage to levels at least equal to those in England, to ease the burden of increased water charges that are stifling business growth and to work proactively to free businesses from undue regulation, thereby eliminating the competitive disadvantage at which many Scottish businesses find themselves relative to their English counterparts and allowing the Scottish economy to grow to its full potential."

After debate, the amendment was disagreed to ((DT) by division: For 16, Against 103, Abstentions 0).

Shiona Baird moved amendment S2M-287.3 to motion S2M-287—

Leave out from "long term" to end and insert—

"sustainability as distinct from growth in the Scottish economy; supports the use of the terms "sustainable" and "sustainability" in accordance with the generally-accepted definition of "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs"; endorses the Scottish Executive’s establishment of a Sustainable Development Forum and Sustainable Development Indicators as initial steps in the direction of sustainability; recognises the need to create a spirit of entrepreneurship, promote innovations and encourage sensible risk taking; believes that this can be achieved by building on the strength of our education system and research and development capability and through development of specific initiatives such as a green jobs strategy; welcomes the Scottish Executive’s commitment to be responsive to ways in which its current strategy can be enhanced and refined, and affirms that long-term prosperity, first-class services and social justice are only achievable through sustainable development."

After debate, the amendment was disagreed to ((DT) by division: For 10, Against 108, Abstentions 1).

The motion was then agreed to ((DT) by division: For 63, Against 54, Abstentions 0).

Mr Jamie McGrigor moved amendment S2M-286.1 to motion S2M-286—

After debate, the amendment was disagreed to ((DT) by division: For 52, Against 68, Abstentions 1).

Tommy Sheridan moved amendment S2M-286.2 to motion S2M-286—
