*S2M-1362 Patricia Ferguson on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau: Committee Substitutes-That the Parliament agrees that Tricia Marwick be appointed to replace Brian Adam as the Scottish National Party substitute on the Education Committee.

Supported by: Tavish Scott*

*S2M-1361 Ms Sandra White: Murals at Partick Annexe-That the Parliament notes the recent unveiling of the murals outside the Partick Annexe Healthy Living Centre in Glasgow; further notes that they are the work of over 90 local artists from across the age spectrum, and congratulates all involved in creating the eight individual murals depicting Partick, past and present.

*S2M-1360 Carolyn Leckie: Salute to the Nursery Nurses-That the Parliament salutes the struggle of nursery nurses, the majority of whom enter their 13th week of all-out indefinite action; is dismayed by the intransigence and lack of care displayed by COSLA, the individual local authorities and the Scottish Executive, despite the nursery nurses having an obviously just case and the spectre of thousands of children not receiving an education for over three months; believes that nursery nurses have demonstrated great dignity in the pursuit of their campaign, in direct contrast to their employers and the Executive who have treated them with contempt by refusing to use the power and means at their disposal that would have resolved this dispute without the costs incurred by nursery nurses, children and parents, and further believes that the Executive should take immediate steps to ensure that a national pay and grading structure is put in place for nursery nurses.

*S2M-1359 Tricia Marwick: Neurological Alliance of Scotland-That the Parliament welcomes the launch on 26 May 2004 of the Neurological Alliance of Scotland; notes that an estimated one million people in Scotland live with a neurological condition, a tenth of whom are disabled by that condition; while encouraged by the recent increase in the number of neurologists, deplores the long waiting times to see a specialist and the continuing geographical inconsistencies across Scotland in the provision of neurological services, and supports the alliance's call for a strategic approach to developing services to meet identified neurological needs throughout Scotland.

*S2M-1357 Michael McMahon: Scottish Premier League Deal with Setanta-That the Parliament notes with disappointment the decision by the Scottish Premier League to agree an exclusive four-year deal with pay-per-view company, Setanta; believes that this will restrict the ability of ordinary football fans to watch Scotland's most popular spectator sport; considers this to be yet another short-sighted decision by those who run Scottish football, and urges the Scottish Executive to make representations to Her Majesty's Government so that the necessary steps are taken to ensure that there will be live football available on terrestrial television in Scotland once this restrictive deal ends.
