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An indication is also provided where motions and amendments have been withdrawn.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

*S3M-5 Christine Grahame: Galashiels Crown Post Office—That the Parliament expresses its concern at the closure of the Crown post office in Galashiels and its relocation into WH Smith, Galashiels; notes that thousands have signed a petition opposing the closure which is detrimental to the needs of both individuals and businesses, diminishes the service and flies in the face of the recent economic growth in Galashiels founded partly on the re-instatement of the railway line, and affirms that this is a further example of why the Scottish Parliament must extend its powers to ensure that decisions about vital services such as the post office network, including both Crown and sub post offices, are made at a Scottish level.
