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 A motion or amendment is live if it has not been debated, withdrawn or otherwise deleted from the list.

Where a motion or amendment has been withdrawn, it is indicated in this section the day after it has been withdrawn.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-12273 Claire Baker: European Tree of the Year Competition—That the Parliament notes that the last tree from Scotland to be represented in the 2015 European Tree of the Year competition is Lady’s Tree, which is a Scots pine from the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s (SWT) Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre and Reserve in Perthshire; understands that, since 1990, the tree has been the summer home of Lady, the UK’s oldest breeding osprey, who, over the last 25 years, has laid 71 eggs and fledged 50 chicks; congratulates the community and the SWT on championing the tree in the competition; further congratulates the Woodland Trust Scotland and the People’s Postcode Lottery in promoting this contest; notes that voting in the competition closes on 28 February, and encourages everyone with an interest to visit the website and take part in the vote.

*S4M-12272 John Pentland: Service of Linkage, St Mark’s and Cleland Parish—That the Parliament congratulates everyone at Cleland Parish Church and St Mark’s Parish Church, in Wishaw, on what it understands was a successful and well-attended service of linkage between the parishes on 29 January 2015; understands that the Church of Scotland has introduced a programme of linkage to secure the future of churches across Scotland at a time when clergy numbers are reduced; applauds the efforts of the Kirk in aiming to ensure that, where possible, communities retain their churches, which can often be at the heart of local activity; further applauds the members of both congregations on what it sees as their support and in marking the start of what it hopes will prove to be a successful relationship that will be of benefit to the community, and wishes the Reverend Graham Austin all the very best in future.

*S4M-12265# Ken Macintosh: Restricted Access to Asylum in Scotland—That the Parliament condemns what it understands is the impending rule change by the Home Office that will further restrict access to the asylum process in Scotland; believes that the change will require asylum seekers whose applications have been refused to travel to Liverpool in person to submit any new evidence in support of their claim; notes the calls for an urgent review of this proposal; is concerned that it will apply regardless of where people live; understands that no support will be offered to help people meet it, unless exceptional circumstances, which are currently undefined, pertain; believes that the people affected are, by definition, without financial support; considers that the rule change will further restrict access to the asylum system; notes the existing restrictions in access that are experienced by newly-arrived asylum seekers across the country including in the West Scotland region, who must travel to Croydon to register their claim, without support or recognition by the Home Office; believes that this new rule will not only have an adverse impact on new and refused asylum seekers but will further add to the barriers faced by women survivors of violence in accessing the asylum process, which requires them to disclose experiences of violence, sometimes despite their children being present, through often a male interpreter or interviewers who lack specific training, an issue which has been highlighted by the Protection Gap campaign; expresses doubts about the legality of the proposed change; notes the view that consideration should be given to abandoning it in light of its possible impact on refused asylum seekers, including the danger of increased destitution and greater vulnerability to exploitation, which could render asylum seekers, including women survivors of violence, unable to access any international protection, and notes the recommendation by the Smith Commission that the UK and Scottish governments should work together to explore the possibility of asylum seekers in Scotland being able to lodge both new and fresh asylum claims to the Home Office from where they reside.

S4M-12222# Patrick Harvie: Young Voters and School Debates—That the Parliament celebrates the many school debates that took place in Glasgow and across Scotland during the independence referendum campaign, allowing young voters to engage with the issues and hear the arguments from campaigners on both sides; welcomes the broad cross-party consensus that has built up for a reduction in the voting age to 16 for Scottish Parliament elections; believes that high quality voter education and participation events in schools have great potential for harnessing young people’s interest in politics and establishing patterns of high voter turnout at an early age; considers that lessons must be learned from the best examples of this work during the referendum to ensure that engaging, creative and politically balanced debates become the norm in schools during future elections; welcomes the work of the Devolution (Further Powers) Committee in examining this area, and notes calls for all relevant parties and agencies to work together to maximise the democratic participation of young people.

S4M-12218# Liam McArthur: The Wave Energy Sector in Scotland—That the Parliament deeply regrets the recent announcement by Pelamis that it has gone into administration and confirmation from Aquamarine Power that it is significantly scaling back operations; understands that these companies were responsible for delivering a number of world firsts and world-only successes in the development of wave energy; believes that, despite these serious setbacks, the wave energy sector in Scotland has an important contribution to make in creating the renewable technology mix that will be necessary to decarbonise Scotland’s energy system and meet its climate change targets; further believes that, with massive wave resources, notably in the Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters, a world-leading skills base and the European Marine Energy Centre in Stromness in Orkney, the sector remains well-placed to successfully deploy wave technology on a commercial scale; looks forward to the role, objectives and budget of Wave Energy Scotland (WES) being clarified in the near future; recognises what it considers the risks attached to ongoing delay in WES taking on its new role, including the loss of expertise and momentum, and restates its support for the development of a wave energy sector in Scotland that can help deliver high quality jobs in communities across Scotland, particularly in the islands.

S4M-12093# Margaret Mitchell: Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s Outstanding Support for Survivors—That the Parliament recognises what it considers Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s outstanding support for stroke survivors; understands that it provides information and support through its Communication Support Services (CSS); notes that there are six CSS coordinators in its Central West area, who in turn support 17 communication stroke groups, such as the Young Stroke Survivors group, which meets fortnightly in Coatbridge; understands that this group believes that GPs need to be more aware of the signs that might be an indication of a patient either having had a minor stroke or of being at high risk of a stroke; understands that all of the groups raise awareness of the common effects of strokes, including what can be hidden conditions such as tiredness, memory loss, lack of concentration and communication difficulties, and highlight the availability of physiotherapy and speech therapy for survivors, and commends Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland on its community-based services.
