*S2M-1531 Michael Matheson: Falkirk World Heritage Site Bid-That the Parliament notes the important role that tourism and heritage play in Scotland; recognises that the Antonine Wall is of national and international importance, and congratulates Falkirk Council and Historic Scotland on setting up a steering group to submit a bid to make the Antonine Wall and the many Roman sites throughout Falkirk a world heritage site.

Supported by: Linda Fabiani*, Alex Neil*, Mr Stewart Maxwell*

*S2M-1530# Frances Curran: Argyll and Clyde Clinical Review-That the Parliament rejects NHS Argyll and Clyde's consultation on its clinical review; believes that this consultation is flawed from the outset as it neither consults the people who live in Argyll and Clyde, nor those who use the NHS, about what kind of services they need; notes that the consultation announces a raft of severe cuts and then has the audacity to attempt to consult people on which services they would like to see cut; considers that the proposals for cuts in this consultation should be rejected outright and, furthermore, that NHS Argyll and Clyde should withdraw this consultation and begin a new consultation with the people they serve on what kind of NHS is needed for the 21st century; believes that the experiences of Argyll and Clyde reflect a Scotland-wide crisis in the NHS, and further believes that a national conference of campaign groups, trade unions, NHS professionals, professional organisations and community representatives should be convened to develop a strategy to protect and improve the NHS in the absence of adequate action by the Scottish Executive.
