*S1M-260 Mr Lloyd Quinan: Hamish HendersonThat the Parliament recognises the contribution Hamish Henderson has made, not only to Scottish culture through song, verse and by translation of other nations culture into English and Scots, but to the reputation of Scotland as a progressive, forward looking, inclusive nation, both at home and abroad; congratulates him on the occasion of his 80th birthday and recognises that, as a veteran of the Second World War, its co-incidence with armistice day is a fitting point for reflection on the values of peace, social justice and the aspiration to a global community based on trust and mutual respect crossing all boundaries which underpin his work.
