Motions which members wish to be considered for debate as members’ business in the Parliament are marked with a hash symbol (#).



*S1M-296 Henry McLeish: Modernisation of the Scottish Economy—That the Parliament acknowledges the very real progress being made to prepare the Scottish economy for the next century, but recognises the growing global competitive pressures it faces, that as a result modernisation of every sector of the Scottish economy will need to be accelerated and that public support is best targeted on initiatives which encourage modernisation.



*S1M-295 Peter Peacock: Digital Scotland Initiative—That the Parliament recognises the crucial importance to Scotland’s economic and social well-being of embracing and making full use of new developments in digital information and communications technology; believes that Scotland must seize the opportunities offered to gain competitive economic advantage, enhance learning opportunities for all, open up information resources to every citizen, and offer modern and efficient public services; believes that every community in Scotland must have high quality access to digital technology and information in the future no matter where they live; and welcomes the creation by the Executive of the Ministerial Committee on Digital Scotland and the Digital Scotland Task Force to create a partnership which will help develop a shared analysis of the challenges and champion the opportunities for Scotland arising from developments in information and communications technology, co-ordinate action and help to create conditions where Scotland can realise the benefits of working at the leading edge of application of those technological developments.

Supported by: Mr Jim Wallace*, Mr Sam Galbraith*, Mr Jack McConnell*, Ross Finnie*



*S1M-294# Alasdair Morgan: Closure of Penninghame Open Prison—That the Parliament is dismayed at the announced closure of Penninghame Open Prison near Newton Stewart, as a result of cuts in the Scottish Prison Service budget imposed by the Scottish Executive; is deeply concerned about the effect on the Newton Stewart area of the loss of 48 jobs and of approximately £1.6 million from the local economy in an area which suffers from one of the worst rates of unemployment in Scotland; is further concerned about the effect on local charitable organisations who rely on prisoners for their day to day operations and about the future lack of rehabilitation facilities for Scottish prisoners and seeks reversal of the closure decision and the provision of assistance to the Newton Stewart area.

*S1M-290# Mr Nick Johnston: Children's Hospital Appeal for Scotland—That the Parliament congratulates the Children’s Hospital Appeal for Scotland (CHAS) on the work done by it at Rachel House in Kinross and asks the Scottish Executive to examine the funding structures currently in place to enable this organisation to plan ahead on a more structured basis and to remove the uncertainty of short term funding for the provision of respite services.



*S1M-288# Dorothy-Grace Elder: Child Pornography and the Protection of Children—That the Parliament urges the Scottish Executive to set up an urgent investigation into new and better ways of protecting children from paedophiles in Glasgow and the menace of child pornography, including increasing the number of prosecutions and sentences for offenders, funding the cost of sufficient lines to Childline’s main Glasgow switchboard to enable more children to get through on the first call, investigating the shortage of social workers protecting children and further investigating with information technology specialists how the users and providers of internet pornography can be apprehended and prosecuted more efficiently.



*S1M-287# Bruce Crawford: European Freight and Passenger Terminal in Fife—That the Parliament notes that the EU is the destination for over half of Scottish exports and that Scotland has no direct ferry connection with Europe; believes that Scotland, being on the geographical periphery of the EU, has an urgent need for good transport links with continental Europe and that it is uneconomic, environmentally unsound and irrational that the majority of Scottish goods and freight traffic should have to pass through Hull or other southern ports to reach destinations in Europe, as this increases the volume of freight traffic on roads and impedes Scottish economic growth; recognises the need to develop a multimodal freight and passenger terminal to serve Scotland, and agrees the need to promote a freight and passenger ferry terminal at Rosyth, assist Fife Council, Fife Enterprise, Scottish industry and the Scottish Tourist Board in their efforts to secure this facility, encourage the fast tracking of all planning applications to allow the proposed facility to be established without delay, encourage the development of road and rail infrastructure links to ensure easy and safe passage for passengers and freight through the proposed terminal at Rosyth and ensure the availability of an appropriate level of freight facilities grant for the proposed ferry terminal at Rosyth.
