  • Submitted by: Rhoda Grant, Highlands and Islands, Scottish Labour.
  • Date lodged: Wednesday, 17 May 2023
  • Motion reference: S6M-09014.2
  • Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, 18 May 2023

As an amendment to motion S6M-09014 in the name of Mairi Gougeon (Securing a Sustainable Food Supply for Scotland), insert at end "; believes that it is unacceptable in the 21st century, in a resource rich nation, that so many people are living in food poverty and relying on food banks; notes that many of those who are living in food poverty are those who work in the food industry; urges more action on addressing low pay, zero-hours contracts and insecure work for those producing Scottish food; recognises the powers that the Scottish Government has that could be used to mitigate the cost of living crisis; believes that food production and a sustainable environment can work hand in hand for the benefit of both, and do not need to be at the expense of one or the other, and further believes that the right to food should be enshrined in Scots law, and that the Scottish Food Commission should be empowered to realise that policy urgently."
