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 A motion or amendment is live if it has not been debated, withdrawn or otherwise deleted from the list.

Where a motion or amendment has been withdrawn, it is indicated in this section the day after it has been withdrawn.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-00215 Graeme Dey: Angus College 2011 Volunteering Awards—That the Parliament welcomes Angus College’s 2011 Volunteering Awards ceremony; believes that the college used this as an opportunity to highlight what it considers is the outstanding work carried out by volunteers across Angus; believes that, without such a strong presence of volunteers in the county and the rest of Scotland, many people would go without vital assistance in many aspects of their life; offers particular commendation to the three winners of this year’s outstanding contribution awards, including Tatiana Zorina of Arbroath who has voluntarily provided what it sees as a vital Russian/English interpreting service for fellow students; welcomes the fact that there were over 70 recipients of awards at this year’s ceremony, and believes that these awards reflect the importance that Angus College places on volunteering as a vital and rewarding part of community and student life.
