St Andrew's Day

That the Parliament believes that it has long held the view that St Andrew’s Day should be celebrated as a full national holiday; notes the view that Scotland's national day should be used to send an inclusive message to the country, its neighbours and the world about the people and prospects of the ancient nation while giving an opportunity to showcase its modern achievements and take forward economic opportunities, and hopes that the day will also help draw attention to the contribution of Scots in many different countries across the globe and in many different fields of endeavour while expressing the desire for unity and celebration among the diversity of faiths, cultures and ethnic origins that it believes is the reality of the nation today.
