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 A motion or amendment is live if it has not been debated, withdrawn or otherwise deleted from the list.

Where a motion or amendment has been withdrawn, it is indicated in this section the day after it has been withdrawn.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-03197 Kenneth Gibson: Awareness of Cannabis Smoking Risks—That the Parliament notes the recently published report by the British Lung Foundation (BLF), The Impact of Cannabis on your Lungs, which highlights what it considers the alarming lack of public awareness and perception of the health risks associated with smoking cannabis; notes that the report analysed responses from 1,045 people across the UK and indicated that 88% of respondents believed that smoking cannabis was less harmful than smoking cigarettes; understands, however, that the BLF considers that the risk of developing lung disease is up to 20 times greater in a cannabis cigarette than in a tobacco cigarette; understands that an estimated two million people in the UK smoke cannabis and that cannabis smoking has strong associations with the development of bullous lung disease, whereby deep inhalation of the pulmonary-toxic components in cannabis can cause the formation of cysts and consequent pneumothorax; also notes the danger of psychosis, with users of the more potent form of cannabis, skunk, considered seven times more likely to develop a psychotic illness than people not using cannabis; highlights that 32% of people surveyed believed that smoking cannabis did not pose any harm to health and the figure rose to almost 40% among respondents under 35, and acknowledges comments aimed to improve public awareness of the severity of health risks associated with smoking cannabis by Dame Helena Shovelton, chief executive of the British Lung Foundation, who states, “This is not a niche problem – cannabis is one of the most widely-used recreational drugs in the UK, with almost a third of the population having tried it. We therefore need a serious public health campaign – of the kind that has helped raise awareness of the dangers of eating fatty foods or smoking tobacco – to finally dispel the myth that smoking cannabis is somehow a safe pastime.”

S4M-03175 Kenneth Gibson: The Saltire to Continue Flying over Hampden—That the Parliament notes the amendment in the name of Mary Fee to motion S4M-03130; does not consider attempting to ensure that the Saltire flies over the national stadium at Hampden Park to be "political posturing"; fully recognises that Scotland will be represented by Team GB at the Olympic Games but does not appreciate how this relates to a campaign signed by thousands to ensure that the Saltire, which flies above Hampden 365 days a year, is retained during the course of the Games; does not believe that the campaign shows disrespect to the people of the UK; understands that other nations in political unions have successfully campaigned to ensure that their flag is flown over participating stadia during Olympiads, and is delighted to note that the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games has announced that the Saltire will be allowed to keep its normal pride of place above the country’s national stadium when eight Olympic football matches are played there in summer 2012.

*S4M-03175.1 Drew Smith: The Saltire to Continue Flying over Hampden—As an amendment to motion S4M-03175 in the name of Kenneth Gibson (The Saltire to Continue to Fly over Hampden), leave out from "amendment" to end and insert "recent controversy surrounding the flying of flags at the national stadium, Hampden Park, during the events taking place there in the summer as part of the London 2012 Olympic Games; considers with regret that proponents of Scottish independence have used the occasion of Olympic sport being played in Glasgow to initiate what it considers an entirely manufactured political stooshie about flags; understands that the request to the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOGOC) about which flags might be flown during the Games came from Scottish National Party researchers, who, rather than awaiting clarification of the LOGOC’s view on the appropriate protocol, sought to suggest that the Saltire had been banned and repeated what it considers this inaccurate claim in motions; welcomes what it sees as the unambiguous statement that has since been provided by the LOGOC that the Saltire is not, and never was, banned, and hopes that this draws a line under this matter and that all members can now finally unite around supporting Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics and enjoy the football that will be played in Glasgow, and further looks forward to seeing what Glasgow will learn from hosting these events ahead of the Commonwealth Games.”

S4M-03168 *#* Annabel Goldie: River City—That the Parliament notes that BBC Scotland’s flagship drama, River City, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in September 2012; further notes that the programme*, which is filmed in Dumbarton,* attracts an average of 500,000 viewers a week and is regarded as an iconic contributor to Scottish drama and entertainment; praises the calibre and commitment of the actors and commends the scriptwriters for entertaining and topical storylines; considers that the programme has an important dimension as a social medium in tackling challenging social and current issues, and congratulates all those involved in the production of River City on creating a Scottish soap that has captured the hearts of so many Scottish viewers who tune in weekly to follow the eventful chronicle of life in Shieldinch.

S4M-02703 *#* Ken Macintosh: Humankind Index—That the Parliament warmly welcomes the launch of Oxfam Scotland’s Humankind Index; notes that the Humankind Index is a new method of measuring Scotland’s collective prosperity, going beyond GDP; commends Oxfam Scotland for what it sees as its participatory approach and for ensuring that seldom-heard communities are given the opportunity to state what really matters to them in relation to their wellbeing; considers that the people of Scotland place great importance on values such as decent housing, good health and clean neighbourhoods, holding them above purely financial and economic values, and hopes that the Humankind Index will be a progressive tool and deliver a framework that helps spark debate and helps policymakers make more informed decisions serving the real prosperity of *East Renfrewshire and the rest of *Scotland and supporting Scottish communities, individuals and the environment to achieve a truly socially just and sustainable Scotland.
