MSPs voted to pass the amended motion from the Scottish government debate on the Planning Reform: The next steps strategy during decision time on 15 January 2012.
The Conservative amendment was backed unanimously, but an amendment from Labour fell.
Labour MSP Margaret McDougal raised a point of order, saying the first minister had said that the marine field station at Millport was not used by any Scottish university.
Ms McDougal said a number of universities had since contacted her to contradict that and asked if Alex Salmond would correct the official report.
Deputy Presiding Officer Elaine Smith said presiding officers were not responsible for the voracity of what members said.
