MSPs voted unanimously to pass the Scottish government motion on employability at decision time on 4 October 2012.
Amendments from Labour and the Conservatives fell.
Prior to decision time Labour MSP Jenny Marra raised a point of order, after Alex Salmond said claims that police officers could replace civilian staff in performing backroom duties when the new single force was established were "thorough nonsense" during first minister's questions.
Ms Marra said: "A leaked document from the Justice Secretary's reform sub-group reveals a plan to release hundreds of police staff, that will be, and I quote, 'delivered by police officers performing basic administrative duties themselves'."
Mr Salmond quoted the position outlined by Chief Constable Kevin Smith who is leading the reform programme and who told Holyrood's Justice Committee: "As a general policy, police officers would not be put in such roles."
However Ms Marra said the leaked document was from Chief Constable Smith and called for the record to be corrected.
Presiding Officer Tricia Marwick said she was not responsible for the content of the first minister's answers.
Lib Dem MSP Jim Hume raised a point of order calling into question the courtesy of Transport Minister Keith Brown and another SNP MSP, during the ministerial statement on the West Coast Main Line.
Ms Marwick reminded all members to refer to other members by their proper names and not to refer to them by any other form of address.
