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 A motion or amendment is live if it has not been debated, withdrawn or otherwise deleted from the list.

Where a motion or amendment has been withdrawn, it is indicated in this section the day after it has been withdrawn.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

*S4M-10899 Neil Findlay: SNP Government Oversees Privatisation of Weight Management Services—That the Parliament notes recent reports that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has awarded a contract to provide overweight patients with weight management advice to the multinational slimming company, Weightwatchers; understands that this is on top of the 37% increase in the use of the private sector in providing NHS services under the SNP government since 2007, and considers that this is further evidence of the SNP’s duplicity over NHS spending on the private sector.

*S4M-10899.1 Stuart McMillan: SNP Government Oversees Privatisation of Weight Management Services—As an amendment to motion S4M-10899 in the name of Neil Findlay (SNP Government Oversees Privatisation of Weight Management Services), leave out from "understands" to end and insert "acknowledges that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is responsible for the contracts that it issues to deliver services within its area, and considers that the only political representation on the board of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is seven Labour councillors."

*S4M-10898# Jackson Carlaw: Neilston and Uplawmoor First Responders Reaches 100th Emergency Call-out—That the Parliament congratulates Neilston and Uplawmoor First Responders on dealing with their 100th emergency call since becoming operational on 4 January 2014; notes that a Community First Responder is a member of the public who volunteers to help their community by responding to medical emergencies while an ambulance is on its way; pays tribute to the leadership of Stuart McLellan and Ross Nelson in growing Neilston and Uplawmoor First Responders from an idea to an active organisation providing frontline medical care; pays further tribute to the over 30 volunteers who ensure that this vital organisation remains fully staffed; considers that they have further benefited from, among others, the support of Arnold Clark Car and Van Rental, which has loaned them a 4x4 vehicle to respond to calls, and St John Scotland (Glasgow), which has provided financial support for training and set-up costs, and looks forward to seeing Neilston and Uplawmoor First Responders continuing to serve their community above and beyond this 100th call milestone.

*S4M-10896 Christine Grahame: Increasing SSPCA Inspection Powers—That the Parliament notes that the Law Society of Scotland, in response to a Scottish Government consultation, supports the proposal to grant additional powers to SSPCA inspectors to investigate wildlife crime, including the ability to search vehicles suspected of carrying illegal carcasses, protected live animals and birds and illegal traps or poisons; believes that these powers, in light of 12 reported raptor poisonings alone in 2013, would provide much needed additional resources to the police in remote areas, and supports this proposal in principle.

S4M-10894 John Mason: Douglas Carswell’s Switch to UKIP and the EU Referendum—That the Parliament notes the recent defection of the Conservative MP for Clacton, Douglas Carswell MP, to UKIP; further notes that Mr Carswell is reported to have stated his intent to stand on behalf of UKIP in the resultant by-election; considers that this highlights an increasingly eurosceptic UK Parliament, and expresses its concern at the possibility of Scotland being taken out of the European Union in the proposed EU referendum in 2017, which it considers would be likely to result in a huge loss of jobs across Scotland.

*S4M-10894.1 Jackson Carlaw: Douglas Carswell’s Switch to UKIP and the EU Referendum—As an amendment to motion S4M-10894 in the name of John Mason (Douglas Carswell’s Switch to UKIP and the EU Referendum), leave out from "notes the recent defection" to end and insert "welcomes the decision of the UK Parliament to give the British people a say on the UK’s relationship with the European Union post-renegotiation; believes that a referendum on EU membership is representative of a parliament listening to the democratic will of its people; considers that this is not dissimilar to the UK Parliament delivering a referendum on Scottish independence; condemns the Scottish Government, which it considers wasted thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money to cover up non-existent EU legal advice, and welcomes the UK Parliament’s willingness to deliver referenda on issues that it considers matter to the British people."

*S4M-10547# Hugh Henry: End-to-end Competition and the Universal Postal Service—That the Parliament notes with concern the expansion of end-to-end postal services by TNT Post UK in major UK cities; considers that the sustainability of the universal postal service depends on Royal Mail being able to use revenue from easier to serve, densely populated areas to cover the cost of a nationwide network; is concerned that the cherry-picking of urban and suburban areas by TNT Post UK could have a serious impact on the financial sustainability of the one-price-goes-anywhere, six-days-a-week universal postal service; expresses its support for the universal service that many people in Renfrewshire South and across Scotland, including rural communities and small businesses, rely on, and notes calls for Ofcom to undertake a full review of end-to-end postal competition as a matter of urgency and determine quickly any regulatory changes needed to protect the universal postal service.

*S4M-10546# Gordon MacDonald: Dad’s Rock, International What’s On 4 Junior Award Winner 2014—That the Parliament congratulates Dads Rock, Scotland’s only network of free playgroups for dads and kids, which won the Most Outstanding Baby and Toddler Group at the International What’s On 4 Junior Awards; notes that the international annual awards, now in their eighth year, celebrate the best children’s activities, classes and party providers in the UK, Ireland and Australia; congratulates Steve Leslie of Dads Rock on winning the Most Outstanding Community Group Volunteer for Children or Families award; understands that nearly 90,000 international votes were cast by parents and carers, including from the Edinburgh Pentlands constituency, and considers that this is a fantastic achievement for a small charity that was only established in 2012.
