*S1M-197 Fergus Ewing: Police Funding over the Millennium PeriodThat the Parliament recognises that the Hogmanay holiday period of 1999-2000 will place on all of Scotlands police forces demands upon their resources additional to those normally encountered during this time of year, both in ensuring public safety at the numerous Millennium festivities and also in ensuring necessary contingency planning to safeguard health services, utilities and other vital services whose continuity may be in jeopardy through the Millennium bug; notes with concern that detailed requests for the required additional funding have been made on behalf of Scotlands police forces early this year to the Scottish Office and thereafter to the Scottish Executive, but that the Executive have failed to respond to these requests; and further notes that the Metropolitan police in London have received additional resources for Millennium policing and calls on the Executive to announce, without further delay, similar funding for Scotlands police forces.
