Tackling Poverty and Building a Fairer Country - Amendment

Submitted by: Alex Cole-Hamilton, Edinburgh Western, Scottish Liberal Democrats.
Date lodged: Monday, June 7, 2021

Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Tuesday, June 8, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-00263 in the name of Shona Robison (Tackling Poverty and Building a Fairer Country), leave out from "urges the UK Government" to end and insert "notes the risk that Scotland's 2024 interim child poverty reduction target, unanimously agreed by the Parliament, could be missed and agrees therefore that families cannot afford for any delay on the part of either the Scottish or UK governments for additional action, backed by stronger fair work principles and a social security system that operates on a human rights basis; believes that poor mental health, the poverty-related attainment gap, and insecure and substandard housing are among the factors that prevent people from achieving their potential and getting on in life, and calls for urgent interventions to therefore include an immediate end to the scandal of thousands of children and adults waiting over a year for mental health treatment as the first step towards meeting the 18-week targets for the first time ever, the extension of funded early learning and childcare, Pupil Equity Funding and in-class support for children and young people, and the building of at least 40,000 new homes for social rent during the current parliamentary session as part of a plan to end homelessness and raise the standard of housing in Scotland."
