Motions which members wish to be considered for debate as members' business in the Parliament are marked with a hash symbol (#)

*S1M-3278 Ms Margo MacDonald: Classification of Cannabis-That the Parliament, recognising the change in the classification of cannabis and the potential of this change to impact on recreational drug use in Scotland, urges the Scottish Executive to appoint a Commission on Cannabis, which would monitor and research the drug's use by socio-economic, age and geographical classifications and compare its effect on public behaviour and its demands on public services with those of alcohol use.

*S1M-3277 Mr Keith Harding: Levenmouth Drug and Alcohol Project-That the Parliament congratulates the Levenmouth Drug and Alcohol Project in Fife for its much valued services and enthusiastic and dedicated commitment shown by the staff, particularly its work on drug and solvent abuse with younger members of the local community.

*S1M-3276# George Lyon: Gourock to Dunoon Ferry Service-That the Parliament notes with concern the Executive proposal to restrict Gourock to Dunoon ferry services to passenger-only in the draft Invitation to Tender for Clyde and Hebrides ferry services currently operated by Caledonian MacBrayne; further notes that this proposal undermines action to upgrade Dunoon pier and transport links at Gourock pier; further notes the total opposition of the local community to this proposal, and considers that the Executive should find an alternative proposal that includes a vehicle-carrying ferry and satisfies European competition rules.

*S1M-3275 Christine Grahame: Presbytery of Jedburgh-That the Parliament notes with concern the proposed closure of Leslie House, the Church of Scotland's eventide home in Fife; further notes that the Presbytery of Jedburgh agreed the following deliverance: "(i) The Presbytery of Jedburgh believes the Scottish Executive is neglecting responsibility in adequately funding the care of elderly people in residential homes; recognises that it is this situation and that of increased regulation which has forced the decision ratified by the General Assembly of 2002 to close Leslie House; and urges the Scottish Executive to attend to the plight of the elderly in residential care homes and to make provision for the adequate funding of their care and (ii) Presbytery instructs the Clerk to transmit this deliverance to the Scottish Executive, to local MSPs and to the Board of Social Responsibility"; fully supports the Presbytery of Jedburgh in this deliverance, and accordingly calls upon the Scottish Executive to address the care gap as a matter of urgency.

*S1M-3274# George Lyon: Organic Farming Action Plan-That the Parliament welcomes the introduction of an "Organic Scotland" label; believes that Scotland can benefit from increased promotion of its quality farmed goods, including organic goods; notes that an Organic Action Plan is urgently needed to address marketing and supply chain difficulties in the Scottish organic sector, and believes that organic farming can operate as part of a sustainable and market-oriented Scottish agricultural industry.
