*S1M-921 Ms Wendy Alexander: Tackling Rough Sleeping in Glasgow and Across Scotland—That the Parliament welcomes the commitment of the Scottish Executive to achieving its aim that no one in Scotland should have to sleep rough by the end of this session of the Parliament; recognises the allocation of funds through the Rough Sleepers Initiative to projects which address the complex needs of rough sleepers including health needs, and notes the progress of the high level review team in carrying out a strategic review of current measures to tackle the problems of street homelessness in Glasgow and across Scotland.

*S1M-920 Richard Lochhead: GM Crops—That the Parliament condemns the decision by Nick Brown, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to withhold vital information from the Scottish Parliament in relation to the importing of GM seeds; recognises that had the information been passed to the Scottish Executive immediately then farmers would have been able to avoid the sowing of GM contaminated crops, and calls upon Her Majesty’s Government to finance an appropriate compensation package for Scotland’s farmers and assume responsibility for any legal action against the seed-supplier Advanta Seeds.

Supported by: Mr Kenny MacAskill*, Mr Adam Ingram*, Irene McGugan*

*S1M-919# Fergus Ewing: Scottish Raptor Working Group—That the Parliament believes that the report of the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions’ Raptor Working Group does not reflect the particular circumstances and problems in Scotland; believes that there should be a Scottish Raptor Working Group established and that this should include within its membership representatives from all relevant organisations and bodies especially those whose livelihood depends upon the rural economy including representatives of the Scottish Gamekeepers Association, the Scottish Landowners Federation, the Scottish Association for Country Sports, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation, the Scottish Homing Union and Scottish Natural Heritage; furthermore expresses its concern that growth in the population of certain raptors may have been at the expense of the population of pigeons, songbirds, grouse and other ground nesting birds and that certain groups espousing conservationist causes appear unwilling to accept that the protection of one bird species may result in the predation of others, and believes that the membership of any Scottish Raptor Working Group should not be dominated by such bodies professing a conservation objective.

*S1M-918 Michael Russell: Scottish Six O'clock News—That the Parliament notes with dissatisfaction the outcome of the review by the Governors of the BBC with regard to appropriate services to serve the devolved nations; expresses disquiet that once again the issue of the "Scottish Six" has not been adequately addressed despite support for such a programme from the Broadcasting Council for Scotland, the broadcasting trade unions, broadcasting staff and the majority of the Scottish broadcasting audience; deplores the establishment of yet another review to consider the matter, and calls upon the Board of Governors to respond to Scottish demand by authorising immediate editorial and technological preparations for the broadcast of a six o’clock national and international television news programme to be in operation by the autumn of 2000.
