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An indication is also provided where motions and amendments have been withdrawn.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

(http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/motionsAndAmendments/motions.htm). A search facility is also available on the Scottish Parliament web site at: http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/motionsAndAmendments/index.htm

*S3M-2645 Mr Frank McAveety: Evening Times and the East End of Glasgow—That the Parliament commends the coverage in Glasgow’s Evening Times of the community spirit and the commitment in the east end of Glasgow; congratulates the Evening Times on demonstrating the positive aspects of the east end and recognises the many individuals and community organisations who are working hard to overcome the challenges faced in terms of educational achievement, job opportunities and dealing with addictions; recommends that journalists and commentators continue to focus on how residents in the east end are working to make things better and to move beyond negative stereotypes of the area, and calls on all levels of government, local, Scottish and United Kingdom, to develop policies and investment to meet the aspirations of the people and communities in the east end of Glasgow.

*S3M-2644 Keith Brown: Due Recognition for the Gurkhas—That the Parliament welcomes the decision by the High Court in London that Gurkhas should have the right to settle in the United Kingdom whether they retired before or after 1997; believes that this was the only fair and just solution possible to their claims, and expresses gratitude to the hundreds of thousands of Gurkhas who, in the past hundred years, have fought alongside UK service personnel in battle.

*S3M-2643 Rob Gibson: Wick Academy FC Advance—That the Parliament congratulates Wick Academy FC for advancing to the second round of the Scottish Cup with a fantastic win against St Cuthberts FC on Saturday 27 September 2008; recognises the importance of this success to developing football in the Highlands; applauds the players for their commitment to the club and enduring one of the longest round trips for a single game in Scottish Cup history, and wishes Wick Academy and all the Highland League teams good luck for the replays on Saturday 4 October 2008 and the second round on Saturday 25 October 2008.

*S3M-2642 Sandra White: Glasgow Out of this World—That the Parliament welcomes over 2,000 space science experts from around the globe to Glasgow for the 59th International Astronautical Congress, a truly prestigious world event described by one delegate as "the space industry’s equivalent of the Olympics"; congratulates Glasgow on securing this event in the face of stiff competition from cities around the world; considers it to be a glowing recommendation of the international attractiveness of Glasgow and Scotland as a world-class destination, and hopes that the conference will lead to further business and research opportunities in the space industry for the whole of Scotland.

*S3M-2641 Aileen Campbell: Big Issue’s Make Heat Fair Campaign—That the Parliament welcomes the launch of the Make Heat Fair campaign by the Big Issue magazine; notes that the campaign’s aims are to widen the qualifications for the winter fuel payment to criteria based on ability to pay rather than simply age and for utility companies to clarify social tariff discounts and make them available and visible to those most in need; further notes that the power to implement these aims is currently reserved to Westminster, and calls on government at all levels in the United Kingdom to work for an end to the blight of fuel poverty across the country.

Supported by: Christina McKelvie*, Alasdair Allan*, Kenneth Gibson*, Michael Matheson*, Bob Doris*, Rob Gibson*, Alex Neil*, Robin Harper*

*S3M-2640 Shirley-Anne Somerville: Edinburgh Top UK City for Greenness and Quality of Life—That the Parliament welcomes the findings of the 2008 UK Cities Monitor study, which ranked Edinburgh first for both greenness and quality of life among 15 cities in the United Kingdom; notes that this influential survey of 200 senior executives also indicated that Scotland’s capital had improved its reputation as a business location in the last year, and welcomes the greater recognition from among the UK-wide business community that Scotland’s capital is an excellent place to live and work.

*S3M-2639 Joe FitzPatrick: Memory Matters Roadshow—That the Parliament welcomes the Memory Matters roadshow, which will visit Dundee and Glasgow from 30 September to 3 October 2008 to offer educational information about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and practical advice on the local support services available to both patients and carers; notes that one in 14 people over the age of 65 will have some form of dementia, with over 56,000 sufferers in Scotland; further welcomes the availability of dementia-specialist nurses at the roadshows; further notes that early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and dementia is vital, and applauds the work of Alzheimer Scotland in raising awareness of these diseases and providing a support network for patients, their relatives and carers.

*S3M-2638 Stuart McMillan: Exam Success for Inverclyde Pupils—That the Parliament congratulates Inverclyde pupils for achieving some of the best exam results in Scotland; notes that 33% of pupils achieved five or more Standard Grade passes and 21% achieved three or more Higher passes, and further notes the hard work and dedication of the pupils in achieving their potential and receiving grades that will hopefully allow them to go on to further education or gain employment.

Supported by: Gil Paterson*, Bob Doris*, Aileen Campbell*, Sandra White*

*S3M-2637 Keith Brown: The Clackmannanshire Bridge—That the Parliament welcomes the decision that the new upper Forth crossing will be called the Clackmannanshire Bridge; recognises and applauds the huge efforts put in by the county’s residents, voluntary groups, elected representatives and local newspapers to campaign for this name to be chosen, and believes that the increased recognition of Clackmannanshire that this naming will bring will mean tangible benefits, putting the Wee County on the map in a big way.

Supported by: Gil Paterson*, Joe FitzPatrick*, Bob Doris*, Jamie Hepburn*, Robin Harper*, Michael Matheson*, Rob Gibson*, Kenneth Gibson*, Roseanna Cunningham*, Hugh O’Donnell*, Alex Neil*, Brian Adam*

*S3M-2636 Bill Kidd: Flagship or Flagging - the Uptake of Pension Credit—That the Parliament notes Age Concern’s report Flagship or flagging?, published on 26 September 2008, and, while welcoming present measures to increase uptake of Pension Credit, supports the charity’s recommendation that a system of automatic payments of Pension Credit and other benefits should be introduced by the UK Government at the earliest opportunity, in light of the fact that around a third of those eligible are still not receiving Pension Credit and given the charity’s key findings in Scotland that 68% of pensioners are cutting back on the amount of gas and electricity they are using and 53% are buying less or poorer quality food.

*S3M-2635.1 John Scott: Scudamore Report into Foot and Mouth Disease—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2635) in the name of Richard Lochhead, insert at end "notes the continued economic impact of the outbreak on Scotland’s beef, sheep and pig farmers, and calls on the Scottish Government to address proactively the continuing decline in livestock numbers across Scotland."

*S3M-2635.2 Liam McArthur: Scudamore Report into Foot and Mouth Disease—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2635) in the name of Richard Lochhead, insert at end "believes that, although the devolution settlement has largely been a success for Scottish agriculture, the current position whereby Scotland decides on animal health policy but has no control over its funding is an anomaly of the Scotland Act 1998, which is detrimental to relationships between the two administrations, and calls on the Scottish Government to press the case for devolving a proportionate share of the animal health budget currently held at Westminster to Scotland, while preserving the right to access the UK Treasury reserve fund."

Supported by: Jim Hume*

*S3M-2635.3 Sarah Boyack: Scudamore Report into Foot and Mouth Disease—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2635) in the name of Richard Lochhead, leave out from "to minimise" to end and insert "such as the role that local abattoirs might play and the unique circumstances of Scotland’s islands; notes however the continuing difficulties experienced by the pig industry, and calls on the Scottish Government to take urgent action to support the Scottish pig industry and to consider further action to minimise the potential future disruption to the Scottish livestock industry."

Supported by: Rhoda Grant*

*S3M-2631.1 Andy Kerr: Local Government Finance—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2631) in the name of Derek Brownlee, after second "income" insert ", together with indicative figures for each local authority for the first year of operation of local income tax, and how stability of funding is delivered to ensure that no local authority loses revenues directly because of the introduction of the new tax system"

*S3M-2631.2 John Swinney: Local Government Finance—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2631) in the name of Derek Brownlee, insert at end "and believes the UK Government should agree that Council Tax Benefit money forms an integral part of local government finance and should be available to local government as part of decisions by the Scottish Parliament to reform local taxation in Scotland."

Supported by: Jeremy Purvis*

*S3M-2629.1 Kenny MacAskill: Age Limits on Purchases of Alcohol—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2629) in the name of Murdo Fraser, leave out from "rejects" to end and insert "welcomes the period of consultation, listening and debate that is happening in Scotland on how to rebalance the country’s relationship with alcohol; welcomes the initiatives being taken at local level, including voluntary agreements not to sell alcohol to persons under 21; notes the ongoing work done by licensing boards and other partners to implement the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005; recognises the need to build on that legislation with further measures including the ending of irresponsible alcohol promotions, and acknowledges that given the major public health implications failure to take further action to tackle alcohol misuse is not an option."

Supported by: Nicola Sturgeon*

S3M-2621 Bob Doris: Ending the Shame of Child Poverty—That the Parliament notes with alarm statistics produced by the Campaign to End Child Poverty that show that Glasgow has the worst levels of child poverty in Scotland including large areas, such as Glasgow North East where 73% of children - 12,010 out of 16,435 - come from families that are either workless or in receipt of working tax credit, and smaller clusters, such as in north Barlanark and Easterhouse south where the proportion in workless families or in families on working tax credit is 98%; supports those involved in the United Kingdom’s biggest ever event to end child poverty, at Trafalgar Square on Saturday 4 October 2008; further supports the call of the organisers of the march for the UK Government to spend just £3 billion a year to reach its own target to halve child poverty by 2010 and stay on course to end child poverty altogether; believes that all governments and administrations in the UK should work positively together in order to address child poverty issues; acknowledges that this can mean different approaches and strategies within different areas of the UK, and further believes that an excellent example of this is the Scottish Government’s approach, including moves to abolish prescription charges, extend entitlement to free school meals and school clothing grants, the freezing of the council tax and the introduction of direct payments to kinship carers of looked-after children.

Supported by: Christina McKelvie*, Roseanna Cunningham*, Sandra White*, Dave Thompson*, Gil Paterson*, Christopher Harvie*

*S3M-2621.1 Mary Mulligan: Ending the Shame of Child Poverty—As an amendment to motion (S3M-2621) in the name of Bob Doris, leave out from "the worst levels" to end and insert "some of the worst levels of child poverty in Scotland; therefore welcomes the findings of the most recent National Statistics publication of Scottish Households Below Average Income, which shows a marked decline between 1999 and 2007 in the number of Scottish households in both absolute and relative poverty, including a 28% decrease in relative child poverty and a 61% decrease in absolute child poverty, meaning that the previous administration’s target to halve absolute child poverty by 2010 was being met significantly ahead of schedule; believes that this progress would not have been possible without many of the initiatives by the previous administration and the UK Government, including the Sure Start programme, record increases in child benefit, the working families tax credit, child tax credit and the national minimum wage, the latter of which was finally passed in the House of Commons without the support of a single SNP MP; also believes that, despite SNP MSP’s rhetoric, freezing council tax and abolishing prescription charges by 2011 does absolutely nothing to assist those on the lowest incomes given that they are already exempt; considers that after nearly 18 months in government, the SNP is yet to fulfil its pledge to introduce direct payments to kinship carers of looked-after children and that its budget, passed with the support of the Conservatives, is in fact precipitating cuts to a range of local services including school meals provision and to a host of voluntary organisations providing services affecting some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children, and further believes that this threatens much of the progress made during the past decade in tackling child poverty as well as seriously undermining the SNP’s credibility on these matters."
