Section F – Motions and Amendments

Motions and amendments are normally only printed the day after the day on which they are lodged and then with the complete list of motions and amendments lodged the previous week which is published in this section of the Bulletin every Monday. That list also contains any motions lodged for debate in the forthcoming week.

Where the text of a motion or amendment is altered, the motion or amendment is re-printed with the changes marked by asterisks in the text.

Where a motion or amendment attracts additional support after it is first published, that additional support is shown separately at the end of this section.

Motions eligible for consideration for debate as members’ business in the Parliament are marked with a hash symbol (#).

Motions submitted for members’ business in the Parliament but which have not yet received the requisite cross-party support are marked with a diamond symbol (♦).

Motions in which a member has indicated a declarable interest are marked with an "R".

An indication is also provided where motions and amendments have been withdrawn.

A full list of current motions is available to view each Monday in paper copy at the Chamber Desk or alternatively on the Scottish Parliament web site at Current Motions

(http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/motionsAndAmendments/motions.htm). A search facility is also available on the Scottish Parliament web site at: http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/motionsAndAmendments/index.htm

New and altered motions and amendments

*S3M-4668 Johann Lamont: Panorama: Britain’s Homecare Scandal - an example of investigative journalism at its best—That the Parliament expresses grave concern regarding the arrest of Arif Farooq, the journalist who, with her colleagues in the Panorama programme, Britain’s Homecare Scandal, exposed scandalously poor quality of care experienced by elderly people in their own homes; notes that the programme has prompted action by the Scottish Government and an inquiry by the Parliament’s Local Government and Communities Committee into home care; applauds all those involved in producing a powerful programme, which is already ensuring more protection for older people who rely on home care; believes that this Panorama programme is in the finest tradition of investigative journalism, and is concerned that while undercover journalism and any methods involving deception must be closely monitored and operate within clear conditions, the action by the police in this instance could deter journalists from one of their core purposes of exposing wrongdoing, cruelty and neglect.

Supported by: Gil Paterson*

*S3M-4667 Patricia Ferguson: Maryhill and Possilpark, Town Centre Regeneration—That the Parliament welcomes the award of £1.8 million to Maryhill Burgh Halls from the Town Centre Regeneration Fund; notes that this completes the funding package for the regeneration of the Burgh Halls that will see the building restored to its former glory for community use; further notes that a working group is drawing up a bid for the regeneration of Saracen Street in Possilpark in the second round of Town Centre Regeneration Fund applications; welcomes the community support that this has received through petition signatures and community consultation; hopes that this bid will succeed in order to complement the regeneration of the wider Possilpark community, and further hopes, given the huge demand for town centre regeneration funding across Scotland, that the Scottish Government will continue this fund into future years.

Supported by: Marilyn Livingstone*, Des McNulty*

*S3M-4666 Richard Baker: Tombstoning, Jumping into the Unknown—That the Parliament notes with concern the dangerous practice of tombstoning, a potentially lethal practice that involves jumping into the sea, rivers and lochs from a cliff or other high point; further notes with concern the incidence of tombstoning in areas of north east Scotland, including Arbroath and the ongoing occurrence of tombstoning at both coastal and inland locations across Scotland; also notes with concern that in the United Kingdom tombstoning has killed 10 and seriously injured 26 people since 2005; again notes with concern that tombstoning not only puts the lives of all those directly involved at risk but also takes up a significant amount of time of the emergency services; notes also with concern the emergence of websites and videos promoting this dangerous activity that often give a false impression that tombstoning is risk-free, which can lead to copycat behaviour; welcomes the joint efforts to address this issue between police forces and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and in particular congratulates the local collaborative approach taken between Tayside Police and the MCA, which has resulted in a local education campaign in schools, warning of the dangers of tombstoning, a campaign leaflet focussed on holiday-makers and an appropriate enforcement strategy; notes the need for a dual approach of education and enforcement, and finally welcomes the ongoing Don’t Jump into the Unknown campaign, run by the MCA, that aims to raise awareness among young people about the risks involved in tombstoning.

*S3M-4665 Jamie Hepburn: Inquiry into Allegations of MI5 and MI6 Complicity in Torture—That the Parliament notes the publication of a parliamentary report by the Joint Committee on Human Rights calling for an inquiry into allegations of MI5 and MI6 complicity in torture; agrees with the report that a system whereby ministers have been able to shirk responsibility and accountability by providing hollow blanket denials is "woefully deficient"; believes the practice of assisting other states in the commission of torture, or acquiescing in such torture, to be abhorrent; further notes that, according to a poll published by the PoliticsHome website, 65% of voters believe that the UK’s moral authority on the international stage has been weakened over the last 10 years as a result of government foreign policy, and calls on the UK Government to take heed of the calls of the Joint Committee on Human Rights and embark on a full inquiry, as soon as is possible, into this matter.

Supported by: Alasdair Allan*, Rob Gibson*

*S3M-4664 George Foulkes: We Will Remember Them—That the Parliament mourns the passing of Harry Patch and Henry Allingham, Britain’s last surviving World War I veterans; acknowledges the huge debt of gratitude that we owe both these men and their comrades who fought and died for the freedoms that we enjoy today; encourages young people to learn more about the heroic sacrifices made by British service personal during the war, and pledges to continue to commemorate the lives and memory of all those who fell during the First World War.

*S3M-4663♦ Maureen Watt: Devolving Marine Conservation—That the Parliament acknowledges the Calman Commission on Scottish Devolution’s recommendation that marine conservation policy should be devolved to Scottish control; notes that Scottish Environment LINK believes that the marine Bills currently before Westminster and Holyrood provide a unique and quick opportunity to devolve responsibility for marine conservation; considers the devolution of marine conservation to be vital for the north east and other coastal areas, and believes that by working together the Scottish and UK governments can ensure that this opportunity is not wasted.

*S3M-4662 Bob Doris: Welcoming Town Centre Investment—That the Parliament welcomes the announcement that £40 million has been allocated in the first round of grants from the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Regeneration Fund and looks forward to the much-needed improvements that this funding will bring to the 48 successful bids and the estimated 640 jobs that will be supported; praises the wide geographical spread of successful bidders and that with almost £10 million going to successful city bids, including over £5 million for Glasgow, notes that this fund is reaching out to both urban and rural town centres; notes the real need to regenerate many of our urban community centres that lie outside city centre areas, including the project at Maryhill Burgh Halls where £1.8 million will help to create a significant community hub with a garden courtyard area, café, office space, gallery, recording studio and the creation of 75 jobs by the end of 2009; notes that the second round of bids for this year is in preparation, including one from Glasgow for the town centre area at Saracen in Possilpark, and believes that this innovative funding model can create the stimulus for new jobs and local regeneration in a way that provides exceptional value for the public purse.

*S3M-4661 Bill Kidd: Congratulations to Scotland’s 7th World Taekwondo Championship Medallists—That the Parliament offers its congratulations to all those who took part in and won medals at the 7th World Taekwondo Championships, which took place in Malaysia in July 2009; notes that Scottish competitors brought home an impressive 18 medals, including five bronze, five silver and eight gold; further notes that medallists included Ryan McLaughlin from the Drumchapel Taekwondo school, Allan Cunningham from Burntisland, Callum Hardy and Graham McAneny from Clydebank, Darren Mutch and Liam Murdoch from Cupar, Olivia Kelsey and Dr Tom Kelsey from Markinch, Unity Kane and Gerry Cahill from Dundee and Stephen Gell from Glenrothes; believes that these competitors offer a shining example of the quality of Scotland’s martial artists, and wishes them all the best of luck in future competitions.

*S3M-4660 Kenneth Gibson: Prison Overcrowding—That the Parliament is disappointed by the hypocrisy of Labour politicians who complain on the one hand that Scottish prisons have record levels of overcrowding, a direct result of their failure to invest in new prisons, while at the same time castigating the Scottish Government for not locking up enough people.

Supported by: Brian Adam*, Angela Constance*, Stuart McMillan*, Rob Gibson*, Gil Paterson*, Bill Kidd*

*S3M-4659 Alasdair Allan: Gold Awards for Western Isles Food Producers—That the Parliament congratulates the four Western Isles food producers that won gold star awards at this year’s Great Taste Awards; notes this recognition of excellence for Stag Bakeries Ltd’s coconut biscuits and Charles MacLeod Ltd’s Stornoway black pudding, which each won a one-star gold award, the Uig Lodge, which won two one-star gold awards for its cold and hot smoked organic sea trout, and Salar Smokehouse Ltd, which won a two-star gold award for its Salar flaky smoked salmon for the third year in a row; welcomes this acknowledgment of the quality of these locally-produced products, and wishes their producers every success in the future.

*S3M-4658 Stewart Maxwell: Congratulations to Scotland’s Top Blood Donor—That the Parliament applauds Thomas Bradley of Barrhead, East Renfrewshire, for his 600th blood donation over the past 42 years; notes that the 66-year old started donating blood when he was just 24 and that his generosity has helped to save or improve the lives of more than 2,000 people since then; acknowledges that, although the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service has helped increase the number of blood donors in Scotland by 10,000 in the last year, less than 7% of Scotland’s eligible population volunteers to donate blood; further notes that the need for blood donations never stops, and welcomes the ongoing dedication and support of blood donors like Mr Bradley who help to save lives every day.

Supported by: Rob Gibson*, Bill Kidd*, Shirley-Anne Somerville*, Jamie Hepburn*, Bob Doris*, Brian Adam*, Gil Paterson*

*S3M-4655.1 Richard Baker: HMP Low Moss—As an amendment to motion (S3M-4655) in the name of Stuart McMillan, leave out from "that building" to end and insert "with concern the significant delay of some two years caused as a direct result of the Scottish Government’s decision to delay the timetable for construction of the new prison until the end of 2011, and, particularly given the record levels of prison overcrowding that this administration has presided over, also notes with concern that the prison will not be in operation until 2012."

*S3M-4653 Brian Adam: BBC Trust Support for Scottish Football on Terrestrial TV—That the Parliament welcomes the decision from the BBC Trust in its submission to the UK Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport to seek the protection of Scottish international football matches by adding live home and away qualifiers to the A-list, giving them the same level of protection as the Scottish Cup, and believes that this is a significant step forward in the campaign to return live Scottish football to terrestrial television where it is available to the widest possible audience.

S3M-4647 *#* Willie Coffey: Campaign Against Diageo Closures—That the Parliament, further to motion S3M-4568 lodged on 6 July 2009, notes that a major cross-party campaign has been established to oppose Diageo’s restructuring proposals that would see the closure of plants at Kilmarnock, Hurlford and Port Dundas with the loss of hundreds of jobs in the Scotch whisky industry and a devastating impact on local communities; endorses the statement by the First Minister calling these proposals socially unacceptable; welcomes the action of the Scottish Government in commissioning an alternative business plan for consideration by Diageo, and echoes the call of thousands of people who took part in the march and rally in Kilmarnock on 26 July for a secure and successful future for the workers and their communities and for the company.

S3M-4646 *#* Robert Brown: Tokyo Beer—That the Parliament is concerned at the extent of health and criminal justice problems associated with excessive and unhealthy alcohol consumption in Glasgow and other parts of Scotland; notes the production of Tokyo beer by BrewDog brewery; further notes that Tokyo is being cited as Britain’s strongest beer; is concerned that, with an alcohol content of 18.2%, each 330ml bottle will contain the equivalent of six units of alcohol, which is twice the recommended daily limit for women set by health professionals; recognises the significant health and social harms associated with irresponsible drinking; further recognises that major cultural change is required if Scotland is to tackle its damaging relationship with alcohol, and therefore believes that promoting drinks of this kind with both a very high alcohol content and unit volume is reprehensible in a society where the medical evidence shows that, across all age groups and socio-economic categories, individuals are drinking too much alcohol.

*S3M-4632.1 Maureen Watt: Olympic-sized Swimming Pool for Aberdeen—As an amendment to motion (S3M-4632) in the name of Nicol Stephen, leave out from "full" to end and insert "50 metre swimming pool in Aberdeen with part funding from the Scottish Government; recognises that at no stage did Aberdeen City Council or sportscotland recommend that the pool be 10 lanes; notes that the previous administration failed to deliver on this much-needed facility during its time in office, and commends the Scottish Government for delivering on another of its promises for people in Aberdeen."
