As an amendment to motion S6M-02158 in the name of Richard Lochhead (The UK Shared Prosperity Fund and the UK Government’s Levelling Up Agenda in Scotland), leave out from “infringe” to end and insert “circumvents the devolved settlement; recognises that gender inequality remains stubbornly high; notes that there are increasing regional inequalities across Scotland, including in health, child poverty, income and economic opportunities, which neither the UK Government nor the Scottish Government is adequately tackling, and calls on the Scottish Government to reinstate the previously scrapped regional equality targets to direct government action and funding of local authorities to urgently address this injustice across the country.”
