*S1M-2412 David McLetchie: Conduct of the First Minister—That the Parliament notes the principles set out in the Report of the Consultative Steering Group and the Scottish Ministerial Code which require Ministers to be as open as possible with the Parliament and the public about their decisions and actions and to be accountable for them to the Scottish people; regrets that the First Minister has failed to observe the spirit of these principles in respect of the misuse of public funds in relation to the use of his Parliamentary constituency office in Glenrothes; views with profound concern the belated disclosure of the financial transactions related to said office involving receipt of rentals by Henry McLeish of 36,122 which sums were retained by him and not accounted for by him to the Fees Office of the House of Commons; believes that said sum should be paid back in full by the First Minister; deplores the lack of candour and transparency exhibited by the First Minister in relation to this matter, which has lost him the confidence of the people of Scotland, and calls upon him to resign.

*S1M-2407 Dorothy-Grace Elder: Alexander Stoddart and Princetown University—That the Parliament expresses its pride in the international recognition given to the eminent sculptor Alexander Stoddart of Paisley and, in particular, on the occasion of Princeton University in the United States of America unveiling his magnificent new statue of the Paisley minister, the Reverend John Witherspoon, who became a founding father of the United States and helped to frame the American Declaration of Independence; congratulates Mr Stoddart on his dual Witherspoon statue now in Paisley and on his other superb works which grace parts of Scotland; is grateful to Princeton University, which started as a college with its most important early presidency held by the Reverend Witherspoon, for its vision in helping to support the best of sculpture from Scotland, and hopes that Scottish organisations may show equal vision in commissioning great works from exceptional artists who, like Mr Stoddart, strive to remain in Scotland.
