*S1M-1227 Michael Russell: Health Visitors and Community Nurses-That the Parliament commends the dedication of health visitors and community nurses; recognises the difficulties they often face in having to carry heavy equipment some distance from their car to a patient's home; urges NHS Trusts to compensate them fully for the use of their cars, which are essential to their work, in line with the proposals of the Deals on Wheels Campaign, and urges the Scottish Executive to institute a free parking badge system for community nurses and health visitors when visiting patients.

*S1M-1226# Shona Robison: 50th Anniversary of the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees-That the Parliament acknowledges the 50th Anniversary of the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, which has served as an important protection of refugees throughout the world; recognises that over the years this convention has made an invaluable contribution in setting the standards for the treatment of refugees, including their legal status, employment and welfare, and therefore joins together to acknowledge the pivotal role which the convention has played and to support its continuing role, which is fundamental to the maintenance and development of fair and just national and international refugee law.
