Section F – Motions and Amendments

Motions and amendments are normally only printed the day after the day on which they are lodged and then with the complete list of motions and amendments lodged the previous week which is published in this section of the Bulletin every Monday. That list also contains any motions lodged for debate in the forthcoming week.

Where the text of a motion or amendment is altered, the motion or amendment is re-printed with the changes marked by asterisks in the text.

Where a motion or amendment attracts additional support after it is first published, that additional support is shown separately at the end of this section.

Motions eligible for consideration for debate as members’ business in the Parliament are marked with a hash symbol (#).

Motions submitted for members’ business in the Parliament but which have not yet received the requisite cross-party support are marked with a diamond symbol (♦).

Motions in which a member has indicated a declarable interest are marked with an "R".

An indication is also provided where motions and amendments have been withdrawn.

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 at Current Motions

New and altered motions and amendments

*S2M-5378 Mr Tom McCabe: Finance—That the Parliament recognises that there have been continuing record levels of public investment in Scotland, as indicated in the most recent publication of Government Expenditure and Revenue in Scotland 2004-05; further recognises the record levels of finance provided to local government which mean that by 2007-08 core funding will have increased by almost £3.2 billion, or 57.9% compared with 1999-2000, and believes that this position is a result of being part of the United Kingdom.

Supported by: George Lyon*

*S2M-5377 Donald Gorrie: The Donald Dewar Room—That the Parliament invites the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body to make better use of the Donald Dewar Room; notes that there is no adequate and congenial room in the Parliament available for quiet study, and suggests that the Donald Dewar Room be used as a quiet reading and writing room for MSPs and staff of all kinds, open at all reasonable hours, with no telephones, lap-tops or other equipment and with Donald Dewar’s books kept secure but available to borrow.
