*S1M-1104 Alex Neil: Failings of New Deal-That the Parliament notes the findings by the National Institute for Economic and Social Research that 80% of the jobs filled by the New Deal would have been there if the New Deal did not exist; notes with concern that only one fifth of the Scottish New Deal budget has been spent so far; seeks an assurance that what is left of the money will be applied effectively, and calls for responsibility for the New Deal and the remainder of its budget in Scotland to be transferred to the Scottish Parliament.

Supported by: Ms Margo MacDonald*

*S1M-1103# Irene McGugan: Skye Bridge Toll Regime-That the Parliament notes the opinion of Professor Robert Black QC that the Assignation Statement in respect of the Skye Bridge is not signed and not dated, and that it therefore may not be a lawful document; notes that a lack of valid authority could mean that tolls have been demanded illegally and people wrongly prosecuted and convicted for not paying their tolls, and believes that the Scottish Executive should undertake an urgent review of the legal status of the Skye Bridge toll regime in the interests of justice.

Supported by: Mr John Munro*

*S1M-1102# Mr Andrew Welsh: Montrose Bridge-That the Parliament notes that the A95 bridge over the South Esk at Montrose is nearing the end of its life span; supports Angus Council in its efforts to replace this vital lifeline, and believes that the Scottish Executive should provide funding or extra capital borrowing consent for this project.

*S1M-1101# Mr Brian Monteith: Richard Demarco and the Road to Meikle Seggie-That the Parliament congratulates Richard Demarco on the opening of his exhibition The Road to Meikle Seggie, celebrating the achievements of his career as an artist, impresario, teacher and philosopher, as an inspiration to many other artists and art lovers, as a champion of human rights through the transformational power of art in society and as an ambassador for Edinburgh and Scotland, and urges the Scottish Executive to initiate discussions between the Scottish Arts Council and the City of Edinburgh Council to ensure that suitable premises are found in Edinburgh for the storage, study and display of his extensive archives.

Supported by: Michael Russell*, Ian Jenkins*, Linda Fabiani*

*S1M-1100 Elaine Thomson: World Corporate Games, July 2000-That the Parliament notes Aberdeen's success in attracting the 13th annual World Corporate Games, in terms of health by encouraging the "Fit for Work, Fit for Life" ethos amongst employees and by promoting the profile and economy of the North East; further notes that the 10,000 competitors are expected to contribute approximately £6 million to the local economy, and hopes that the competitors, who originate from up to 40 different countries around the world, return to visit this beautiful city and area.
