*S1M-1376 Mr Mike Rumbles on behalf of the Standards Committee: Recommendations of the Standards Committee, 4th Report 2000—That the Parliament agrees the recommendations of the Standards Committee, as set out in its 4th Report 2000, on the investigation of complaints, the appointment of a Standards Commissioner and other matters.

*S1M-1374 Irene McGugan: Children's Rights—That the Parliament notes the publication by the Scottish Alliance on Children’s Rights of the report All Children, All Ages which highlights that, although Her Majesty's Government signed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991, many of the 54 separate international standards are not being complied with, that children’s basic human rights are being consistently disregarded and that many of the problems highlighted in the report are caused by poverty and social deprivation, and calls upon the Scottish Executive to give serious consideration to the findings and recommendations within the report, principally that a Children’s Commissioner for Scotland should be appointed to ensure that children’s rights are a central consideration in any new legislation, that children themselves should have a voice in policy making, that serious consideration be given to a ban on physical punishment and that there be specific and immediate actions to alleviate poverty as well as long- term targets.

*S1M-1373 Angus MacKay: Renewing Local Government Finance—That the Parliament welcomes the improvements in the local government finance system proposed by the Executive and agrees that this will provide greater stability and improve accountability and will contribute to the Executive’s aims of revitalising government and ensuring better local services and tax stability for the citizens of Scotland.

*S1M-1371 Dorothy-Grace Elder: Tribute to the Reverend Adrian Rennie—That the Parliament pays tribute to the outstanding, devoted and passionate work for Scottish causes carried out by the late Reverend Adrian Rennie of Drylaw Parish Church who has died at the age of 37, having lavished his time and energy upon work for the people of Scotland, ignoring courageously his lifelong heart condition; wishes his family to know how deeply he touched the lives of many, whether from his devoted service to the Iona Community, his church work in the East End of Glasgow, his burning concern for world peace, his chairmanship of the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament or his invaluable aid in setting up the Parliament’s Cross Party Anti-Nuclear Group, and wishes to record that in his brief lifespan he achieved more in the fight for social justice than many spared for decades more and proved by his blithe spirit and sparkling humour that human goodness such as his does not equate with dullness.
