Scottish Parliament

Revised at 13.06 am


Correction in Section F

Motion S4M-06589: Alex Johnstone: Scotland Favours an Effective Nuclear Deterrent

Due to an administrative error in processing the above motion, support from John Swinney and Derek Mackay was wrongly added to this motion. I would like to make it clear that neither Member had supported this motion.

I have personally apologised to these two Members for this error.
