*S1M-1186 Ben Wallace: Orderly Conduct of Fuel Protestors—That the Parliament commends the hauliers and farmers who have recently protested at Grangemouth and elsewhere in Scotland about fuel taxes for the orderly and responsible conduct of their protests and urges Her Majesty’s Government to address the concerns that have been expressed as a matter of priority.

*S1M-1183 Tommy Sheridan: Eniola Adewale—That the Parliament believes that the recent removal of Nigerian asylum seeker Eniola Adewale to Leicester and the subsequent rejection of his application for asylum was due to the fact that he has consistently campaigned in Scotland for decent living conditions for asylum seekers and against the climate of racism, abuse and ignorance confronting asylum seekers; believes that the treatment Eniola has received amounts to an abuse of human rights and his freedom of expression and an abuse of Scottish hospitality; calls upon the Home Secretary to revoke his rejection of Eniola Adewale’s application for asylum immediately on the grounds that his deportation to Nigeria constitutes a grave risk to his life and liberty, and agrees to support Eniola’s appeal against deportation.

*S1M-1182# Johann Lamont: Erection of Mobile Phone Mast in Traquair Drive, Glasgow—That the Parliament supports the efforts of the residents of Traquair Drive in the Glasgow Pollok constituency to get British Telecom to stop work on the erection of a mobile phone mast on the BT building in Traquair Drive until meaningful consultation with local residents is carried out; believes that such consultation should address the serious concerns of local people about the health risks, particularly to children, posed by such a mast; notes the inadequacy of current legislation in this area, and requests the Scottish Executive to bring forward changes to this legislation as a matter of urgency.

Supported by: Tommy Sheridan*
