Section F: Motions and Amendments

Motions and amendments are normally printed the day after they are lodged. If an amendment is lodged to a motion then the original motion will appear alongside the amendment, along with any support lodged that day, in this section.

Each Monday, this section also contains all motions and amendments lodged the previous week that are still live and any motions and amendments that have been lodged for debate in the coming week. A motion or amendment is live if it has not been debated, withdrawn or otherwise deleted from the list.

Where a motion or amendment has been withdrawn, it is indicated in this section the day after it has been withdrawn. Support for motions and amendments received after they are lodged is shown at the end of this section the day after such support is received.

Motions and amendments can be published with various symbols

  • Asterisks before the motion or amendment number indicate a motion or amendment published for the first time
  • Asterisks also identify alterations to the text of a motion or amendment made since it was first published
  • A hash symbol identifies motions eligible for debate at Members’ Business
  • A diamond symbol identifies motions lodged for Members’ Business that have not yet attracted the required cross-party support
  • An "R", identifies motions or amendments in which the Member who lodged it has a registrable interest.

The Parliamentary Bureau periodically deletes motions or amendments not scheduled for debate and which are over six weeks old.

Any questions in relation to this section should be directed to the Chamber Desk

New and altered motions and amendments

*S4M-01796 Margaret Burgess: Breaking the Social Contract—That the Parliament notes with concern the report jointly published by the Scottish Local Government Forum Against Poverty and Rights Advice Scotland entitled Breaking the Social Contract regarding the UK Government’s plans to time-limit the payment of contributions-based Employment Support Allowance (ESA) to 12 months; considers it alarming that this change in welfare provision is to be applied retrospectively, potentially resulting in 25,000 people in Scotland immediately losing their contributions-based benefit; believes that this change will break the implied social contract between the taxpaying worker and the state, seriously undermining the relationship; understands that there are more than 130,000 people in Scotland currently receiving contributions-based ESA or its predecessor long-term incapacity benefit; understands that, in Scotland, this means that close to £300 million in annual payments will potentially be lost, and calls on the UK Government to reconsider its reform programme.

*S4M-01795 Elaine Murray: Withdrawal of Funding from Borderline Homeless Charity—That the Parliament regrets the Scottish Government’s decision to withdraw all funding from Borderline, a charity that helps destitute Scots in London, from the end of March 2012; notes that Borderline has helped around 200 people a year to find homes, hostel beds, work in London or transport back to Scotland; understands that the Scottish Government has cancelled its support because the charity works outside Scotland, and applauds the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Right Reverend David Arnott, on his request to the First Minister to have the funding reinstated and the Church of Scotland for its efforts to raise alternative funding through donations from its congregations.

*S4M-01794 Drew Smith: AC/DC Exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery—That the Parliament congratulates Glasgow Life on the success of its latest popular music exhibition, AC/DC: Scotland’s Family Jewels, which opened at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, in September 2011 and is scheduled to run until 12 February 2012; understands that 30,000 fans from all over the world have travelled to see the exhibition at Kelvingrove; notes that almost 450 items are on display, including handwritten lyrics from Highway To Hell and a leather jacket worn by the singer, the late Bon Scott; notes that, although AC/DC formed in Australia, two band members, Angus and Malcolm Young, spent their early childhood in Cranhill and that Bon Scott was born in Kirriemuir, and encourages all rock fans to catch the exhibition before it heads to the USA.

*S4M-01793 Richard Baker: Beating Bowel Cancer’s Be Loud Be Clear Week—That the Parliament supports Beating Bowel Cancer’s Be Loud Be Clear Week, which begins on 23 January 2012 to raise awareness of bowel cancer and its symptoms, dispelling the embarrassment so often associated with the disease; notes that bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer and that every year, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease; welcomes the continuing roll-out of the national screening programme in Scotland to people aged 50 to 74; understands that, while the risk of bowel cancer increases with age, it also affects a significant number of younger people; supports further improvements in bowel cancer services in Scotland that build on increased patient involvement and public awareness delivered through managed clinical networks, and encourages MSPs to support the Be Loud Be Clear campaign between 23 January and 30 January 2012.

*S4M-01792 Jackie Baillie: Protect Scotland’s Local Newspapers—That the Parliament expresses concern about the proposal by Media Scotland to close the offices of local newspapers and centralise them at the Daily Record building in Glasgow; understands that Media Scotland, which was established in 2011 through the merger of the Daily Record and the Sunday Mail with Scottish and Universal Newspapers, is Scotland’s largest newspaper publishing company and owns 20 of Scotland’s local newspapers; further understands that Media Scotland intends to close the Lennox Herald office in Dumbarton, as well as a number of other offices; believes that the decision to close the offices of local newspapers will have a detrimental impact on local reporting; recognises the importance of local newspapers, like the Lennox Herald, to a vibrant and free press that serves the interests of the local community; urges Media Scotland to review its plans and take into consideration the potential impact that this will have on circulation, and calls on the Scottish Government to take action to protect the future of Scotland’s local newspapers.

*S4M-01791 Kenneth Gibson: Roots of Empathy—That the Parliament notes the piloting of the Roots of Empathy project in primary schools in North Lanarkshire; is aware that it is now being delivered in North Ayrshire’s Moorpark Primary School in Kilbirnie and Dalry Primary School, supported by Action for Children; understands that Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based classroom programme that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social and emotional competence to increase empathy, is delivered to all children in a classroom, is effective for children at nursery and in primary school and has already been delivered successfully in many countries such as Canada, where it started in 1996, New Zealand, the USA and the Republic of Ireland; considers that the programme helps children identify and reflect on their own feelings and the feelings of others to lay the foundation for more safe and caring classrooms; understands that national and international evaluations of Roots of Empathy indicate significant reductions in aggression and increases in positive social behaviour, and believes that, both from an educational perspective and as part of the Scottish Government’s early intervention and preventative spend agenda, the Roots of Empathy programme should be given further encouragement by the Scottish Government.

*S4M-01790 Patricia Ferguson: Bringing it All Home, Remembering Gerry Rafferty—That the Parliament notes the success of the Bringing it All Home: Remembering Gerry Rafferty concert; congratulates Martha Rafferty, Rab Noakes and the organisers of Celtic Connections for bringing together what it considers so many outstanding musicians and performers in this celebration of the life of singer/songwriter Gerry Rafferty; looks forward to the transmission of the concert on BBC 2 on 1 February 2012, and encourages BBC 4 to broadcast both the concert and the documentary, Gerry Rafferty: Right Down The Line, back-to-back as a tribute to the legacy of a world-class artist.

*S4M-01788 Neil Bibby: St Andrew’s Academy in Class of its Own—That the Parliament congratulates St Andrew’s Academy in Paisley on winning a second green flag from Eco-Schools Scotland; believes the achievement to be the first double by a high school in the west of Scotland; notes the range of activities undertaken by the school including recycling projects, building up its eco-garden and developing its memorial garden; welcomes the school’s work with the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) and in promoting awareness of African issues by engaging in sustainability projects with a village in Kenya and sending 24 students to a village in Ghana to help build a library; further notes that, in 2009, the school became the first secondary in Renfrewshire to be awarded what is considered the coveted Green Flag award; applauds the school’s eco-committee of pupils and staff for its continued dedication and hard work, and hopes that other schools will follow St Andrew’s Academy’s excellent example.

S4M-01784 Margaret McDougall: Life Sciences Enterprise Area for GlaxoSmithKline, Irvine—That the Parliament welcomes the Scottish Government’s decision to designate the Irvine-based GlaxoSmithKline plant as a Life Sciences Enterprise Area; hopes that this will attract new jobs and opportunities to North Ayrshire and its surrounding regions and considers that this could bring widespread educational benefits and boost the region’s scientific economy; understands however that, based on studies of the previous enterprise zone initiative, there are concerns that the new areas might displace jobs from other regions; hopes that, in planning the new areas, the Scottish Government has ensured that these will bring real investment to communities while not affecting other areas, and further hopes that the places that were not designated as new enterprise areas continue to receive investment.

*S4M-01784.1 Margaret Burgess: Life Sciences Enterprise Area for GlaxoSmithKline, Irvine—As an amendment to motion S4M-01784 in the name of Margaret McDougall (Life Sciences Enterprise Area for GlaxoSmithKline, Irvine), leave out from “understands” to end and insert “also welcomes the other three enterprise areas in Scotland, which, with the Life Sciences Enterprise Area, cover 14 sites that can exploit opportunities in growth sectors; believes that all the designated areas will offer significant potential to stimulate and deliver new jobs, and congratulates the Scottish Government’s actions to support jobs and create the best possible business conditions to achieve sustainable economic growth for Scotland.”

*S4M-01777 Kenneth Gibson: Payback in North Ayrshire—That the Parliament recognises the success of seven payback projects in North Ayrshire that have received funding of £136,715, projects that have seen low-level offenders paying back the communities that they have harmed by means of manual work, such as providing furniture removal services and improving leisure facilities; understands that Ardrossan Indoor Bowling Club received £24,000 that was seized from convicted criminals and helped pay for extensive refurbishment; is aware of the importance of this and the other projects, not only for communities but for the offenders themselves, and looks forward to further successful projects in the near future.

S4M-01765 Margaret McDougall: Ardrossan Town Station under Threat—That the Parliament recognises the importance of local train services to commuters in Ardrossan; notes Transport Scotland’s publication, Rail 2014 - Public Consultation, which calls into question the future of train stations within one mile of each other; expresses concern that Ardrossan Town station is under threat; understands that there has been no decline in passenger numbers using this station and that it is still well used; further understands that the Strategic Transport Projects Review Intervention 26, Rail Enhancements Between Inverclyde/Ayrshire and Glasgow, aims to deliver further improvements to passenger services and make a significant contribution to increasing rail capacity in Ayrshire, which is expected to encourage modal shift from road to rail, and expresses concern that the closing of Ardrossan Town station does not fit into this model and will further reduce transport services in North Ayrshire, increasing journey times to work for commuters and cutting people off from work opportunities.

*S4M-01765.1 Kenneth Gibson: —As an amendment to motion S4M-01765 in the name of Margaret McDougall (Ardrossan Town Station under Threat), leave out from "calls" to end and insert ", it considers, poses a wide range of questions that will allow all consultees to have their views taken into account as the Scottish Government plans future improvements to Scotland’s railways; notes that nowhere in the consultation paper is the possible closure of Ardrossan Town Station, or any other railway station in Scotland, suggested; acknowledges that the document actually mentions the possibility of planning additional railway stations in areas where population density has increased in order to improve accessibility; considers that the Scottish Government has already demonstrated a commitment to improving Scotland’s railway infrastructure by constructing new stations in Alloa and Laurencekirk, committing £1 billion to improving rail links between Glasgow and Edinburgh through the Edinburgh-Glasgow Improvements Programme and by building the Airdrie-Bathgate Rail Link, which opened on 12 December 2010 having been completed on time and on budget, and calls on members of all parties to engage in an informed, constructive debate regarding the future of Scotland’s railways so that their constituents’ views can be heard and to further support the Scottish Government as it continues making improvements to Scotland’s railway infrastructure."

S4M-01750 David Stewart: Road Equivalent Tariff for Commercial Vehicles—That the Parliament notes with concern the Scottish Government’s current proposals to remove road equivalent tariff from commercial vehicles using ferries that serve the communities of the Western Isles, Coll and Tiree; notes that in some cases the fare increase for small haulage companies from Tiree would more than double the fare and in the Western Isles may be up to 175% of the current fare; considers that in the current economic climate these fare increases are both extremely damaging to the local economy and completely unjustifiable; calls on the Scottish Government to urgently withdraw these plans, and believes that, if the Scottish Government chooses not to do so, this would seriously question its commitment to Scotland’s most fragile island communities.

*S4M-01750.1 John Finnie: Road Equivalent Tariff for Commercial Vehicles—As an amendment to motion S4M-01750 in the name of David Stewart (Road Equivalent Tariff for Commercial Vehicles), leave out from "with concern" to end and insert “the ongoing representations by the haulage industry in the Western Isles to the Scottish Government to ensure the fairest possible system of fares for commercial vehicles on ferries in the islands on a basis that recognises the economic fragility of this part of Scotland; believes that, if a system of discounts is to replace the present road equivalent tariff (RET) fares for larger commercial vehicles, it must be on a fair basis that benefits small as well as larger companies and must operate more equitably than previous discount schemes for commercial vehicles; welcomes the indication in the ferries review that the Scottish Government will look at extending the definition of a small commercial vehicle on Hebridean and Clyde ferries from a maximum of five to six metres; understands that RET fares will continue for all passengers, cars and small commercial vehicles on routes between the mainland and the Western Isles, Coll and Tiree and that the Scottish Government will extend the scheme in the course of the current parliamentary session to cover other islands, starting with Colonsay, Gigha and Islay in 2012, as well as inter-island routes such as those on the Sound of Barra and Sound of Harris, and welcomes what it considers the contrast between these policies and the situation during eight years of a Labour-Liberal Democrat administration, when not one of the longstanding demands for RET in the islands was met."

S4M-01655 *#* Linda Fabiani: Assistance Dogs are Working Dogs Too—That the Parliament notes that, under current VAT legislation, food for assistance dogs is not VAT exempt but that food for other working dogs, such as sheepdogs and greyhounds, is; notes that working dogs’ food is exempt as they require a high-protein diet but that such a diet is not appropriate for assistance dogs as they work in a different manner; considers that, where a charitable organisation, *such as Guide Dogs Scotland, which works with clients in East Kilbride and across Scotland*, was to supply food for assistance dogs from donations, an exemption from VAT would result in significant savings, which could be used to assist its client group, and believes that this issue could be easily resolved to the benefit of relevant charitable organisations and individual owners who feed their own assistance dogs.
