*S1M-530 Mr John McAllion: Dispersal of Civil Service Jobs to Tayside—That the Parliament notes the repeated rhetorical commitment by Ministers that they will ensure that the Scottish Parliament works for all and not just part of Scotland, and in that context calls for serious consideration to be given to the dispersal of civil service and quango jobs to Tayside and for an annual review by the Parliament of progress achieved in dispersing such jobs across Scotland.

Supported by: Kate Maclean*, Mr John Swinney*, Roseanna Cunningham*, Mr Andrew Welsh*

 

*S1M-529# Dr Winnie Ewing: Sign Language—That the Parliament notes that the British Sign Language is used as an essential communication tool by a substantial number of people in Scotland and has a strong historic tradition; recognises the pressure on interpreters who are in constant demand particularly in rural areas; notes that the British Deaf Association is seeking review of the recognition, rights and support applied to the language; expresses the hope that the Scottish Executive will assist the process by taking actions to implement the European Parliament’s recognition of Sign Language as an official language in each of the member states, and recognises the importance and necessity of British Sign Language by integrating signing into the plenary sessions of the Parliament.

 

*S1M-528 Mr Duncan Hamilton: Lorn and Islands Hospital—That the Parliament expresses its concern at the threatened closure of the Nelson Ward at Lorn and Islands District General Hospital; commends the local petition initiated by Councillor McIntosh; reaffirms its commitment to local provision of health care services for the elderly, and calls upon Lorn and Islands Hospital to carry out full public consultation on the provision of local services.
