At col 29297, paragraph 4—

Original text—

Kenny MacAskill: I believe that targets have to be appropriate, but let me be clear: the only target that the chief constable has for stop and searches is the percentage that are to be positive and successful. He has set a high standard of 25 per cent. At present, it is only 20 per cent.

Corrected text—

Kenny MacAskill: I believe that targets have to be appropriate, but let me be clear: the only target that the chief constable has for stop and searches is the percentage that are to be positive and successful. He has set a target of 15 per cent. At present, it is reaching almost 20 per cent.
