Submitted by: Oliver Mundell, Dumfriesshire, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party.
Date lodged: Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, June 16, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-00382 in the name of Richard Lochhead (Mitigating, Tackling and Responding to the Skills Impact of Brexit), leave out from "that employers in sectors" to end and insert "the changing labour market and the potential skills shortages created and highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic and calls on the Scottish Government to take further action to mitigate these shortages, including creating more apprenticeships, reversing the trend of decreasing college student numbers that has occurred under the current SNP administration, setting out plans for a return to in-person small group learning in higher and further education and introducing Individual Learning Accounts as called for by CBI Scotland; notes the need to work constructively with the UK Government to maximise the opportunities for Scotland outside of the EU, and calls on the Scottish Government to avoid needless disruption to the labour market by abandoning its plans to hold a divisive independence referendum while Scotland is recovering from a global pandemic."
