Meeting of the Parliament 20 November 2014 : 20 November 2014
The Presiding Officer (Tricia Marwick)

There are three questions to be put as a result of today’s business.

The first question is, that amendment S4M-11598.1, in the name of Claire Baker, which seeks to amend motion S4M-11598, in the name of Richard Lochhead, on food and drink, be agreed to.

Amendment agreed to.



Meeting of the Parliament 20 November 2014 : 20 November 2014
The Presiding Officer

The next question is, that motion S4M-11598, in the name of Richard Lochhead, on food and drink, as amended, be agreed to.

Motion, as amended, agreed to,

That the Parliament welcomes the achievements of Recipe for Success, Scotland’s first national food and drink policy; recognises the contribution that it has made to the unprecedented economic growth of the food and drink industry in Scotland and in export markets across the world; congratulates the primary producers and processors for their continued focus and commitment to quality and provenance; notes the increasing interest in local food and desire among consumers to know where their food comes from; welcomes the publication of the discussion document, Becoming a Good Food Nation, setting out the next steps for Scotland’s food and drink policy, and agrees that it must become second nature that Scots eat, serve and buy food that is healthy and environmentally sustainable if Scotland is to achieve the aspiration of becoming a good food nation; further recognises the importance of promoting training, skills and apprenticeship opportunities across the sector to encourage future generations into the industry, and believes that an overarching and inclusive food policy that puts accessibility, affordability and sustainability at its heart is key if Scotland’s larder is to be of benefit to all.
