Tuesday 30th September 2003

Section F : Motions and Amendments


A full list of current motions is available to view each Monday in paper copy at the Chamber Desk or alternatively on the Scottish Parliament web site as Current Motions. The full text of all motions lodged the previous week will appear in the Business Bulletin the following Monday.


Items marked with an asterisk (*) are new or have been altered. Asterisks in the text show the extent of alterations made.

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

*S2M-423# Linda Fabiani: Civilian Peace Service—That the Parliament recognises that 5 November is a powerful reminder that religious and other divisions can escalate destructively into conflict; welcomes the initiative of churches, faith groups, non-government organisations, the Scottish Centre for Nonviolence, the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly, the United Nations Association and others to promote in Scotland the concept of a civilian peace service, and endorses the need for a standing, trained service with a key role in conflict resolution and post-conflict peace-building.

*S2M-422# Colin Fox: The Airborne Initiative—That the Parliament condemns the trial by media of the alternative to custody project, the Airborne Initiative, and any attempts to cut the project’s funding; notes that this project works with some of Scotland’s toughest offenders and offers a course that addresses offending behaviour and is regarded as a model of rehabilitation across the western hemisphere; considers it to be completely unacceptable for the future of such projects to be put in jeopardy by the incomplete and subjective evidence of a scene in a television documentary, and commends the Airborne Initiative for taking part in a programme that shows the extent of the problems those attempting to address offending behaviour have to face on a daily basis.

*S2M-421 Hugh Henry: The Draft Victim Statements (Prescribed Courts) (Scotland) Order 2003—That the Justice 1 Committee recommends that the draft Victim Statements (Prescribed Courts) (Scotland) Order 2003 be approved.
