*S1M-3988 Colin Campbell: Maternity and Paediatric Services at the Inverclyde Royal Hospital, Greenock-That the Parliament notes with concern the ongoing threat to maternity and paediatric services at the Inverclyde Royal Hospital in Greenock and further notes that, in the spirit of the Scottish Executive's Partnership for Care: Scotland's Health White Paper, any reduction in maternity or paediatric services would seriously undermine the Executive's key philosophy of a patient-focused health service in Scotland.

*S1M-3987# Elaine Smith: International Women's Day-That the Parliament notes the significance of International Women's Day on 8 March 2003; welcomes the fact that this observance continues to recognise the struggles and achievements of women throughout history and highlights the ongoing plight of women across the world; acknowledges the impact that campaigning organisations such as Zero Tolerance, now celebrating its tenth year in operation, have had on the lives and experiences of many women within our own country, and believes that the Scottish Executive should ensure continued support for such organisations and congratulates Zero Tolerance on their 10 years of campaigning on the issue of violence against women in Scotland.
