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 A motion or amendment is live if it has not been debated, withdrawn or otherwise deleted from the list.

Where a motion or amendment has been withdrawn, it is indicated in this section the day after it has been withdrawn.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

New and altered motions and amendments

*S4M-02005 Jackie Baillie: Leading Youth Charities Unite—That the Parliament welcomes the news that the Prince’s Trust and the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust are joining forces to offer support to the country’s young people; notes the long history that each organisation has of supporting Scotland’s disadvantaged young people into education, training, employment and business; considers that, as youth unemployment reaches record levels in Scotland, the Scottish Government must do more to help Scotland’s young people reach their potential, and commends the Prince’s Trust and the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust for their efforts in tackling what it sees as Scotland’s youth unemployment crisis.

*S4M-02003 Mary Fee: Scottish Government Must Step in to Save Erskine’s Social Enterprises—That the Parliament calls on the Scottish Government to provide financial support to Erskine, the charity for ex-service personnel, in order for the charity to restart its recently closed social enterprises and keep those that have been marked for closure; notes that Erskine Print is set to cease business and Erskine Pine, a furniture enterprise, is also expected to close; believes that these social enterprises provide valuable jobs for ex-service personnel, many of whom are disabled; calls on local authorities to act by helping Erskine with procurement, and, in remembering those who died in the service of their country, expresses its deepest gratitude to the ex-service personnel who have been injured and rely on the support of Erskine.

*S4M-02002 Alison Johnstone: Leith Biomass Plan Scrapped—That the Parliament welcomes the decision by Forth Energy to scrap plans for a biomass energy plant in the port of Leith; congratulates the local groups and campaigners who have highlighted what it considers the unsustainable nature of the proposed plant as well as concerns regarding its scale, location and impact on pollution and congestion; notes that more than 1,800 members of the public objected to the power station plan; considers that the plan to create only electricity from the plant would have been highly inefficient and that importing wood from overseas to fuel the plant would have caused unnecessary local disruption and pollution as well as contributing to international deforestation and human rights abuses in other communities; remains concerned that three Forth Energy biomass plants that it considers unsustainable are still planned at the ports of Dundee, Grangemouth and Rosyth, and urges the Scottish Government to ensure that the designated special renewable enterprise zone in Leith will bring benefits to the local community as well as a sustainable energy future.

*S4M-02001 Kenneth Gibson: ASH Scotland—That the Parliament highlights the work of ASH Scotland in demonstrating, through recent publications, what it considers to be the need to emphasise the importance of reducing exposure to secondhand smoke and smoking in young people and the continuous detrimental impact of smoking in Scotland; understands that 24.2% of the adult population are regular smokers and acknowledges ASH Scotland’s campaigns and recommendations for reducing the prevalence of smoking; notes that these include policies such as its Refresh campaign, which is dedicated to reducing families’ exposure to secondhand smoking at home and aims to help health professionals in promoting and increasing awareness of these issues; notes that many NHS boards, including NHS Ayrshire and Arran, are engaging in the scheme; recognises the support for ASH Scotland’s campaigns from other organisations such as the British Heart Foundation (BHF); notes BHF’s research on the effect of plain packaging, which found that, based on the packet design alone, 25% of the regular smokers surveyed believed that one brand of cigarette was less harmful than another; notes that the research suggested that reducing what can be perceived as the attractiveness of tobacco products could reduce any misleading appeal of cigarettes, and understands that measures can be implemented that will significantly reduce the severity of smoking in Scotland.

*S4M-02000 Jamie Hepburn: Shell Springboard Award for Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd—That the Parliament congratulates the Cumbernauld-based company, Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd, on securing a grant of £40,000 at the recent 2012 Shell Springboard Awards, which were held in Edinburgh; understands that this was for the company’s innovative energy-saving approach to building control, including its development of what it believes is the world’s lowest power consumption CO2 sensor; understands that use of the sensor can bring major energy savings in buildings and help to increase emissions awareness in general; considers that this type of innovation is necessary for the reduction of overall carbon emissions in Scotland and for helping the country achieve its 2020 goals in this regard; considers work such as that of Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd to be of high importance in promoting Scotland as a location for businesses, and believes that the company’s research and its work with technologies that combat climate change are exemplary.

*S4M-01996 Michael McMahon: 25th Anniversary of the Caterpillar Sit-in—That the Parliament commemorates the 25th anniversary of the workers’ occupation of the former Caterpillar plant in Tannochside in Uddingston; notes that, on 14 January 1987, Caterpillar (UK) Ltd announced its intention to close its plant at Uddingston and that the shop stewards at the plant immediately announced their decision to occupy the plant in protest and formed a Joint Occupation Committee; notes that the occupation lasted 103 days before work resumed on 27 April 1987 when a closure agreement was finally reached; congratulates the shop stewards and workforce for following the example of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders in the 1970s; recognises the support given to the Caterpillar workers by the wider trade union movement, the local community, the people of Lanarkshire, of Scotland and beyond in their attempt to save the factory not only for their own jobs but for future generations, and regrets that the plant finally closed later in 1987 with the loss of over 600 jobs.

*S4M-01995 Stuart McMillan: Eating Disorders Awareness Week—That the Parliament welcomes the call to action by the eating disorder charity, Beat, during Eating Disorders Awareness Week, from 20 to 26 February 2012, asking people to speak up about eating disorders; notes that more than half of the people that Beat spoke to said that they did not tell anyone about their eating disorder because they did not know how to talk about it; acknowledges the importance of breaking the silence early so that people with eating disorders receive the treatment that they need and, when they do find the courage to confide in someone, they feel understood and supported, and therefore encourages people who feel that they may have an eating disorder to visit www.b-eat.co.uk or contact the helpline on 0845 634 1414.
