Thursday 20 September 2001

Section A : Daily Business List


Meeting of the Parliament

9.30 am Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party Debate on Juvenile Justice-

S1M-2205 Bill Aitken: Juvenile Justice-That the Parliament recognises that the Children's Hearings system as at present constituted is manifestly failing to deal with criminal and offending behaviour and calls upon the Executive to carry out a full review of Scotland's system of juvenile justice, such a review to include consideration of giving Children's Hearings an increased range of disposals.

The Presiding Officer has selected the following amendments

S1M-2205.2 Nicol Stephen: Juvenile Justice-As an amendment to motion (S1M-2205) in the name of Bill Aitken, leave out from "recognises" to end and insert "confirms its support for the principles of the hearings system in dealing with children who are at risk whether through offending or anti-social behaviour or are in need of care and protection; considers that the children's hearings system provides the best framework within which to identify the needs of vulnerable children and young people and to determine the most appropriate response; praises the commitment and skill of the volunteers who are appointed as members of Children's Panels and Children's Panel Advisory Committees; welcomes the consensus achieved by the Advisory Group on Youth Crime and confirms its support for the Group's recommendations for reducing and stopping youth crime; further welcomes the increased expenditure by the Executive on children's services and Youth Crime Review to support targeted services in local authorities; supports the Executive in its drive to reduce re-offending rates among children and young people, as set out in Working Together for Scotland, as this will benefit communities, victims and young people, and encourages local authorities, service providers and other partners to develop programmes and services which seek to address the offending behaviour and underlying contributory factors in the lives of young people who offend."

S1M-2205.1 Irene McGugan: Juvenile Justice-As an amendment to motion (S1M-2205) in the name of Bill Aitken, leave out from "as" to end and insert "has served society and Scotland's children and families very well and that it will continue to do so in the future, provided that adequate and effective resources are applied to the system to help young people who offend, and calls upon the Scottish Executive to bring forward without further delay the national strategy and framework arising from the youth crime review in order to set out national programmes for effectively working with young people to prevent crime, ensure that measures are in place to support those at risk of offending and recommend proven intervention strategies for offenders.

followed by Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party Debate on Improving Patient Care-

S1M-2207 David McLetchie: Improving Patient Care-That the Parliament welcomes the opening of the new hospitals built thanks to the PFI programme initiated by the last Conservative governments but notes with grave concern that the delivery of health care in Scotland has fallen far short of the standards people expect, with local hospital services under threat and patients waiting longer for treatment and facing the prospect of being forced to go abroad to get the treatment they need in a reasonable time; calls upon the Scottish Executive to extend the principle of partnership with the independent sector to the delivery of health care and begin discussions with the independent sector with a view to signing a "concordat" in similar terms to that already established in England, and further calls upon the Executive to initiate a debate in Scotland about how to improve standards of health care to the levels of the best European countries without raising taxes to unacceptable levels and whilst ensuring that access to high quality care is guaranteed for all.

The Presiding Officer has selected the following amendments

S1M-2207.2 Susan Deacon: Improving Patient Care-As an amendment to motion (S1M-2207) in the name of David McLetchie, leave out from "built" to end and insert ", notes the progress that has already been made across Scotland in improving services for patients and believes that continued implementation of Our National Health: a plan for action, a plan for change will deliver increasing benefits for patients, with the objective of high quality care for all."

S1M-2207.1 Shona Robison: Improving Patient Care-As an amendment to motion (S1M-2207) in the name of David McLetchie, leave out from "welcomes" to end and insert "notes that, as a result of successive government policies, Scotland has become the PFI capital of Europe and that PFI is the most expensive method of financing hospital building; further notes that the privatisation of domestic services in hospitals presided over by the last Conservative government has resulted in a deterioration of standards of cleanliness in hospitals and record levels of hospital-acquired infections; believes that further private involvement in the delivery of health services is not in the interests of patients, and is committed to rebuilding a public health service in Scotland that is capable of delivering the highest quality of care for all our citizens."
