S1M-3229.1 David Mundell: Railways in Scotland-As an amendment to motion (S1M-3229) in the name of Mr Kenny MacAskill, leave out from "welcomes" to end and insert "expresses its concern that the Scottish Executive is presenting the renewal of the ScotRail franchise as a panacea for all the difficulties faced by Scotland's railways while offering no guarantees that it can deliver a new franchise within the specified timetable and calls on the Scottish Executive to focus on the immediate priorities for the development of Scotland's railways and as a first step to bring forward the detail of its financial contribution to the redevelopment of Waverley Station."

The Presiding Officer has selected the following amendments

S1M-3228.2 Mr Andy Kerr: Investment in Public Infrastructure-As an amendment to motion (S1M-3228) in the name of Alasdair Morgan, leave out from "notes" to end and insert "recognises, in developing Scotland's infrastructure, the real progress being made through a balanced and sustained investment programme and the vital contribution which public private partnerships have made already in modernising Scotland's infrastructure and public services, and welcomes the Executive's intention to continue to encourage such partnerships, as part of a range of funding options, wherever and whenever they present themselves as providing the best value solution."

S1M-3228.1 Mr David Davidson: Investment in Public Infrastructure-As an amendment to motion (S1M-3228) in the name of Alasdair Morgan, leave out from "the recommendations" to end and insert "the Audit Scotland/Accounts Commission report on Private Finance Initiative procurement in schools, Taking the Initiative - Using PFI contracts to renew council schools; welcomes the availability of such schemes which enable local authorities and public bodies to work in partnership with the private sector to deliver much needed capital projects early and in a cost-effective manner utilising private sector risk management and construction contract expertise, and further welcomes the Scottish Executive's support for this innovative approach.
