*S1M-4019 Patricia Ferguson on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau: Dog Fouling (Scotland) Bill - Business Motion—That the Parliament agrees that, during the Stage 3 proceedings on the Dog Fouling (Scotland) Bill, debate on each part of those proceedings shall be brought to a conclusion by the time-limits indicated (each time-limit being calculated from when Stage 3 begins and excluding any periods when the meeting of the Parliament is suspended)—

Amendment 1 – no later than 30 minutes

Motion to pass the Bill - no later than 1 hour

Supported by: Euan Robson*

*S1M-4018 Rhona Brankin: National Galleries of Scotland Bill - Final Stage—That the Parliament agrees that the National Galleries of Scotland Bill be passed.

*S1M-4017# Iain Smith: Proposed Closure of Civic Amenity Sites in Fife—That the Parliament notes with concern the proposed closure of community civic amenity sites in Fife; further notes that these closures are caused by requirements being imposed by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) which require that all such sites should be permanently staffed; believes that this will result in the loss of valuable community facilities across Scotland, particularly at weekends and evenings, which will result in increased fly-tipping and greater risks to the environment, and further believes that SEPA should cease imposing these requirements with immediate effect.

*S1M-4016# Bill Butler: Announcement of Glasgow Airport Rail Link Project—That the Parliament welcomes the announcement made on 12 March 2003 by the Minister for Enterprise, Transport and Lifelong Learning committing the Scottish Executive to invest in the construction of the vital Glasgow Airport rail link to Central Station; applauds the timetable for implementation of the project which could begin as early as 2005 with a completion date of 2008 and recognises that this will result in Glasgow being the first city in Scotland to have a completed direct airport rail link; notes that the new airport rail link will provide Glasgow with a direct connection to three international airports and believes that this will contribute in a positive fashion to the economic development of Glasgow and west central Scotland; accepts that this announcement does not preclude the Glasgow crossrail project from being developed in due course, and praises the commitment of Glasgow’s MSPs, Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde Passenger Transport, Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and The Evening Times in campaigning, and arguing, for this much-needed transport project.

*S1M-4015# Trish Godman: Welcome Overhaul of Credit Laws—That the Parliament welcomes the decision of the Department of Trade and Industry to introduce legislation that will, at long last, give greater protection against those avaricious companies that inflict extortionate interest charges upon vulnerable borrowers; believes that the Scottish Executive, Scottish banks, credit unions and local authorities have an important role to play in the proposed safeguards to be given to decent, ordinary people who are hoodwinked by such disreputable companies, and further believes that ways and means must be found to eliminate the predatory activities of loan sharks who continue to ply their evil trade in communities throughout Scotland.

*S1M-4012.1 Robin Harper: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to motion (S1M-4012) in the name of Mr John Swinney, leave out from first "believes" to end and insert "recognises that a United Nations mandate authorising military force against Iraq is unacceptable whilst alternatives to military action have yet to be exhausted; believes that UN weapons inspectors should be given time to complete their work, and believes that Her Majesty’s Government should withdraw its support for military action until such time as peaceful alternatives to war have been fully explored."

Supported by: Margo MacDonald*, Dorothy-Grace Elder*

*S1M-4012.2 Dennis Canavan: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to motion (S1M-4012) in the name of Mr John Swinney, leave out from first "believes" to end and insert "considers that, on existing evidence, there is no political or moral justification for military action against Iraq and believes that, if such action were taken without the explicit approval of the United Nations, it would be contrary to international law and therefore urges Her Majesty's Government to use its diplomatic influence to work for peace rather than war."

*S1M-4012.3 Tommy Sheridan: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to motion (S1M-4012) in the name of Mr John Swinney, leave out from second "no" to end and insert "weapons inspectors must be given sufficient time to effect disarmament within Iraq, but as part of a worldwide campaign of disarmament including Israel, Pakistan, India, Great Britain, the United States of America, China, Russia and other states in possession of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction; recognises the increased threat of global dominance imposed by the USA on the basis of economic and military control throughout the globe and regrets the increasingly aggressive statements and actions by the USA in pursuit of its stated desire to build a new American empire in the 21st Century; deplores the fact that 300,000 children a day die from preventable diseases like malaria, tuberculosis and cholera, all products of poverty; further believes therefore that all-out war on poverty and inequality throughout the world should be the United Nations’ priority and that such a war would be the most effective assault on terrorism and the causes of terrorism throughout the Middle East and the world, and further supports those citizens of Scotland committed to engaging in peaceful civil disobedience in opposition to war with Iraq, should Her Majesty’s Government support such an illegal, immoral and unjust action."

*S1M-4012.5 Nora Radcliffe: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to motion (S1M-4012) in the name of Mr John Swinney, leave out from first "believes" to end and insert "condemns the failure of the Iraqi regime to respect international law and human rights; supports the United Nations’ (UN) efforts to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction under UN Security Council Resolution 1441; calls for the inspectors to be given sufficient time and resources to continue their work as long as the Security Council assesses that progress can be made; believes that only as a last resort, once all other options have been exhausted, should military action in Iraq be undertaken, and opposes any military action not sanctioned by a further resolution from the Security Council and an affirmative vote on a substantive motion in the House of Commons."

Supported by: Tavish Scott*, John Farquhar Munro*, Iain Smith*, Ian Jenkins*, Mr Mike Rumbles*, George Lyon*, Robert Brown*, Mr Keith Raffan*, Mr Jamie Stone*, Donald Gorrie*

*S1M-4012.6 Patricia Ferguson: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to motion (S1M-4012) in the name of Mr John Swinney, leave out from first "no" to end and insert "the authority of the United Nations is crucial to resolving conflicts in the Middle East, that Saddam Hussein is a danger to the international community, the region and his own people and that Saddam Hussein should co-operate fully with the implementation of UN resolution 1441 and notes the objective of Her Majesty’s Government to secure a further resolution in the UN Security Council before any military intervention."

Supported by: Karen Gillon*, Brian Fitzpatrick*, Marilyn Livingstone*, Angus MacKay*, Iain Gray*, Mr Tom McCabe*, Mr Alasdair Morrison*, Cathy Jamieson*, Trish Godman*, Scott Barrie*, Mr Frank McAveety*, Hugh Henry*, Mr Jack McConnell*

*S1M-4012.6.1 Phil Gallie: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to amendment (S1M-4012.6) in the name of Patricia Ferguson, insert at end "registers its concern that the report published by the International Development Committee of the House of Commons concludes that insufficient emphasis has been placed on the humanitarian implications of military action in Iraq and urges Her Majesty’s Government, in co-operation with the United Nations, aid agencies and other governments, to address this as a matter of priority."

Supported by: David McLetchie*, Alex Johnstone*

*S1M-4012.6.2 Mr John McAllion: The Current International Situation—As an amendment to amendment (S1M-4012.6) in the name of Patricia Ferguson, leave out from "the authority" to end and insert "no case for military action against Iraq has been proven."
