*S1M-627 Mr Sam Galbraith: The Scotland Act 1998 (Cross-Border Public Authorities) (Adaptation of Functions etc.) Order 2000—That the Education, Culture and Sport Committee in consideration of The Scotland Act 1998 (Cross-Border Public Authorities) (Adaptation of Functions etc.) Order 2000 recommends that the order be approved.

 

*S1M-626# Mrs Margaret Ewing: Glenrinnes School Closure—That the Parliament recognises the importance of primary schools to our rural communities; asks for clarification of the Scottish Executive’s policy on the retention of such schools; is concerned that Glenrinnes school is threatened by closure despite being the only focal point in the village and despite the sound educational arguments proposed by parents and prospective local residents; and considers that the proposals by Moray Council to close this educational facility, which would accrue only 3,500 to Moray Council, should be rejected.

Supported by: Nora Radcliffe*, Dr Winnie Ewing*

 

*S1M-625# Dr Elaine Murray: Reduction in the TV Licence Fee for Deaf and Hearing Impaired People—That the Parliament note that visually impaired viewers are entitled to a 50% reduction in their television licenses; notes also that deaf and hearing impaired people cannot fully enjoy television broadcasts despite the welcome service of subtitling, and believes that deaf and hearing impaired people should also be entitled to a reduction in the cost of their television licenses.

 

*S1M-624 Roseanna Cunningham: Pinochet Case—That the Parliament regrets the decision of the Home Secretary, Jack Straw, not to extradite General Augusto Pinochet to Spain in relation to torture and murder in Chile under his dictatorship and believes that this constitutes a serious setback for the enforcement of the rule of international law and human rights.

Supported by: Nicola Sturgeon*, Michael Russell*

 

*S1M-623 Mr Jack McConnell: Ethical Standards in Public Life Bill etc. (Scotland) Bill - Finance- —That the Parliament, for the purposes of any Act of the Scottish Parliament resulting from the Ethical Standards in Public Life etc. (Scotland) Bill, agrees to the expenditure payable out of the Scottish Consolidated Fund of the expenses of the Scottish Ministers in the consequence of the Act.

 

*S1M-622 Hugh Henry: Bank Charges—That the Parliament notes with concern the decision of the Link Group to support Barclays Bank’s proposals to make a charge for withdrawals at cash machines; expresses concern that this will have a disproportionate adverse affect on lower income users, and supports the three Scottish banks who are committed to providing the service free of charge.
