*S2M-265 Ms Sandra White: Queen Mother's Hospital and Yorkhill Hospital, Glasgow-That the Parliament notes with concern the threat to maternity and children's services in Glasgow as a result of the maternity services review currently ongoing by NHS Greater Glasgow; further notes the excellent reputation of the Queen Mother's Maternity Hospital Glasgow and the special link between it and Yorkhill Children's Hospital, and calls upon the Scottish Executive to support the retention of these hospitals.

*S2M-264# Roseanna Cunningham: Defence Aviation Repair Agency, Almondbank-That the Parliament notes the continued speculation about the impact of the Ministry of Defence's 'End to End Review' on the future of the Defence Aviation Repair Agency (DARA) in Almondbank; is concerned about the threat to the 325 jobs at the facility; recognises the important and specialised skills of the workforce there which are significant to both Perthshire locally and Scotland as a whole; acknowledges the massive local economic impact of DARA in Almondbank as evidenced by the Mackay Consultants' report of August 2003; further notes the cross party and multi-agency Welsh campaign to defend DARA jobs in Wales, and believes that the Scottish Executive should ensure that a similar campaign is organised in Scotland in order to protect and defend the continued existence of defence jobs at DARA in Almondbank.

*S2M-258 Mr Brian Monteith: Harviestoun Brewery Champion Beer of Britain Award 2003-That the Parliament extends its warmest congratulations to Clackmannanshire's Harviestoun Brewery in Dollar after its 'Bitter & Twisted' ale won the prestigious Champion Beer of Britain Award and the Champion Bitter Award at the Great British Beer Festival 2003 held at London Olympia, keeping the title in Scotland for the second year in a row.

*S2M-257# Mrs Nanette Milne: Support for Mountain Rescue Service-That the Parliament recognises the valuable life-saving work performed by the mountain rescue service in attending an estimated 400 incidents each year; notes that each mountain rescue team receives £6,000-7,000 via local police boards, which accounts for only a fraction of the average £30,000 annual running cost of each team, and commends the fundraising work by the teams, but reflects that a tiny proportion of the £500,000,000 underspend by the Scottish Executive in 2002-03 would have equipped and maintained the teams in full for many years to come.
