*S1M-3841 Mr Jamie Stone: Chernobyl Children's Life Line-That the Parliament commends the work of the Chernobyl Children Life Line in bringing children that are suffering as a result of the Chernobyl legacy from Belarus to Scotland; recognises the benefits, in terms of both health and experience, that the children can gain from these visits; endorses the work of the organisation and its host families, which benefits the children and fosters better links between Scotland and Belarus, and calls on the Scottish Executive to consider whether it can offer any assistance.

*S1M-3840# Mr Tom McCabe: Young People in Sport-That the Parliament commends Hamilton International Sports Trust, which seeks to aid young amateur sports people in competition at the highest levels, for their support given to young people in South Lanarkshire; congratulates the young people supported by the trust on the success they have achieved; notes the work of sportScotland in this area, working to ensure that sport is more widely available to all with investment of 8.1 million per year; believes that such initiatives and investment promote confidence and community spirit among our young people; further believes that this type of community-based support from the local community would benefit other communities across Scotland, and believes that such initiatives, promoting access to sport and promotion of sporting excellence among young people, are worthy of suitable support from the Scottish Executive.

Supported by: Donald Gorrie*

*S1M-3839 Trish Godman: The Madrid Declaration-That the Parliament commends the active involvement of Scottish members of the European Disability Forum in publishing the Madrid Declaration in this European Year of Disabled People; agrees with its authors that disability is a human rights issue, that people with disabilities seek equal opportunity, not charity, and that people in Scotland with disabilities are invisible citizens; supports their view that local authorities, employers, trade unions, educationalists and national authorities should be doing much more to ensure that people with disabilities enter the labour market as equals and that their employment should be based on equality in relation to terms, conditions and opportunities for promotion; endorses the Madrid Declaration, and calls on the Scottish Executive to pledge its support for the declaration.
