The Deputy Presiding Officer

The result of the division on amendment S6M-04580.3, in the name of Douglas Lumsden, which seeks to amend motion S6M-04580, in the name of Tom Arthur, on community wealth building—delivering transformation in Scotland’s local and regional economies, is: For 31, Against 87, Abstentions 0.

Amendment disagreed to.

The Deputy Presiding Officer

The next question is, that amendment S6M-04580.1, in the name of Daniel Johnson, which seeks to amend motion S6M-04580, in the name of Tom Arthur, on community wealth building—delivering transformation in Scotland’s local and regional economies, be agreed to.

Amendment agreed to.

The Deputy Presiding Officer

The next question is, that motion S6M-04580, in the name of Tom Arthur, on community wealth building—delivering transformation in Scotland’s local and regional economies, as amended, be agreed to.

Motion, as amended, agreed to,

That the Parliament recognises the huge potential of Community Wealth Building as a practical, place-based economic development model that can help transform local and regional economies to deliver a Wellbeing Economy for Scotland; agrees that Community Wealth Building can deliver more and better jobs, business growth, community-owned assets and shorter supply chains supporting net zero ambitions; welcomes the progress made by public, private and third sectors in implementing Community Wealth Building in Scotland so far; notes that the 2021 Programme for Government and recent National Strategy for Economic Transformation confirmed plans to introduce legislation on Community Wealth Building during the current Parliamentary session; believes that this provides an important opportunity to think creatively and innovatively about the interconnections and interdependencies between the economy, environment and society; supports plans for wide engagement on this legislation; believes that the Scottish Government should provide more detail to its Community Wealth Building proposals to ensure it is embedded within a clear regional economic framework and a coherent and ambitious industrial strategy to support post-pandemic economic development and local job creation; further believes that the necessary legislative, institutional change and investment must be available to deliver the Community Wealth Building that Scotland needs and that can be translated into regional and national growth, and calls on the Scottish Government to revise all public procurement policies to ensure that Community Wealth Building is embedded at every level.

The Deputy Presiding Officer

I propose to ask a single question on the two Parliamentary Bureau motions. Does any member object?

There being no objections, the final question is, that motion S6M-04615, on approval of a Scottish statutory instrument, and motion S6M-04616, on parliamentary recess dates, both in the name of George Adam, be agreed to.

Motions agreed to,

That the Parliament agrees that the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006 (Consequential Provisions) Order 2022 [draft] be approved.

That the Parliament agrees the following parliamentary recess dates under Rule 2.3.1: 11 to 19 February 2023 (inclusive), 1 to 16 April 2023 (inclusive), 1 July to 27 August 2023 (inclusive), 7 to 22 October 2023 (inclusive), 23 December 2023 to 7 January 2024 (inclusive).

That concludes decision time. There will be a short pause before we move to members’ business. I ask members who are leaving the chamber to do so as quickly and as quietly as possible.
