*S1M-2877# Michael Russell: Hamish Henderson—That the Parliament recalls the unique and vigorous contribution made by Hamish Henderson to Scotland and its culture; notes that he was a strong supporter of a Scottish Parliament but an even stronger supporter of opening up the minds and hearts of the peoples of Scotland to social justice and song; pays tribute to his work to record and maintain the languages, stories and passions of ordinary Scots folk and to carry such traditions forward, and determines to find an appropriate way to honour him and the many national and international causes he espoused in the new Parliament building at Holyrood.

*S1M-2876 John Farquhar Munro: Third Party Insurance for GM Crops—That the Parliament notes press reports that insurance companies are unwilling to provide third party cover against accidental contamination by GM crops; further notes with concern how vulnerable this may leave organic farms in the vicinity of GM crop field trials, and calls on the Scottish Executive to make representations to the European Commission that a temporary moratorium on GM crop field trials should be imposed until a statutory third party insurance scheme is introduced that will protect the interests of other third parties.

*S1M-2875 Malcolm Chisholm: Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning) (West Coast) (No.3) (Scotland) Order 2002—That the Health and Community Care Committee in consideration of the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning) (West Coast) (No.3) (Scotland) Order 2002 (SSI 2002/80) recommends that the order be approved.

*S1M-2874# Bristow Muldoon: Drugs and Driving—That the Parliament expresses concern about the number of lives lost in road traffic crashes that may have been caused by people driving whilst under the influence of legal and illegal drugs; recognises that, in law, driving while unfit through drugs is an offence; notes that Transport Research Laboratory tests demonstrated a significant increase between the 1980s and 1990s in the percentage of people testing positive for illegal drugs who have been involved in fatal collisions; welcomes the launch by the British Medical Association of its web resource on research that has been undertaken and is currently in progress; considers that there should be speedier and more specific and co-ordinated research in order that appropriate and conclusive drug testing devices can be introduced, and believes that there should be a Scottish campaign in order to educate the public that the side effects of illegal and certain prescribed drugs can affect their ability to drive.
