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

*S1M-2628 Christine Grahame: Scottish Borders Education Meltdown-That the Parliament notes with great concern that Scottish Borders Council has announced a further £7 million of cuts may be made by Scottish Borders Council which would result in (a) eliminating continuing education in the Borders leading to the closure of community wings and centres, including the Abbey Row Centre in Kelso which has 44 dependent organisations, such as mother and toddler and pensioner groups, and the loss of 100 or more jobs; (b) the cessation of funding for 15 voluntary organisations including Borders Womens Aid which will lose £50,000 of core funding and Gala Youth Project which will lose £60,000; (c) the threatened closure of the swimming pools at Jedburgh, Selkirk and Eyemouth, and therefore calls upon the Scottish Executive to enter into immediate discussions with the Council administration with a view to providing special borrowing in order that these swingeing cuts are reversed.

*S1M-2627 Mr Mike Rumbles: BSc Course in Audiology-That the Parliament notes that Queen Margaret University College in Edinburgh has expressed an interest in developing a BSc course in Audiology; recognises that at present there is no school of audiology for Scotland; further recognises that there is a serious lack of trained audiologists to implement the use of digital hearing aid technology across Scotland, and considers that the Scottish Executive should give its support to Queen Margaret University College to develop and implement this course.
