*S4M-12023 Neil Findlay: Skytrac Catering Staff Sacked—That the Parliament deplores the decision by the rail catering company, Skytrac, to issue redundancy notices to eight onboard hosts who are based at Edinburgh Waverley station and who serve on First TransPennine Express’s Edinburgh and Glasgow passenger services to Manchester Airport; notes that this follows a dispute over access to hot water to replenish on-board tea and coffee facilities; understands that Skytrac has not paid rent to First ScotRail for use of the catering depot at Waverley over the last seven years and notes that the franchise for ScotRail passenger services was recently awarded to Abellio; recalls what it sees as Skytrac’s poor industrial relations record in Scotland, including the closure of its Glasgow depot in 2012 and the subsequent re-deployment of staff to Manchester; believes that Skytrac has now made a proposal similar to that in 2012 by wanting to replace the redundant Edinburgh workers with Manchester-based colleagues at a cost in hotel fees that will be equivalent to the annual wages of three Edinburgh-based staff; rejects both Skytrac’s proposal and its contention that, as there is no alternative source of hot water at Waverley station, these redundancies are unavoidable, and supports the RMT union in its view that that this seemingly trivial contract dispute highlights the threat to rail workers’ livelihoods from a fragmented privatised passenger rail network.

S4M-11986 Michael Matheson: Serious Crime Bill – UK Legislation—That the Parliament agrees that the relevant provisions of the Serious Crime Bill, introduced in the House of Lords on 5 June 2014, relating to amendments to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, amendments to the Computer Misuse Act 1990, amendments to the Serious Crime Act 2007 in respect of serious crime prevention orders, the repeal of provisions within the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 in respect of financial reporting orders and the amendments to the Prohibition of Female Genital Mutilation (Scotland) Act 2005 to include habitual UK residents, so far as these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament or alter the executive competence of the Scottish Ministers, should be considered by the UK Parliament.

S4M-11979 John Lamont: Eyemouth-born Gary Anderson is the 2015 PDC World Darts Champion—That the Parliament congratulates "the Flying Scotsman", Gary Anderson, on what it considers his well-deserved victory at the Professional Darts Corporation’s (PDC) world championship at Alexandra Palace in London; considers his victory against the 16-time world champion Phil Taylor in a thrilling final to be a fantastic achievement; understands that, in claiming the Sid Waddell Trophy, he hit the maximum score, 180, an impressive 19 times; notes that he is the first Scot to win a world darts title since Les "McDanger" Wallace claimed the British Darts Organisation’s version in 1997, and hopes that this victory is one of many more to come for the Eyemouth-born Gary.

S4M-11978 Nigel Don: £3,550 Gift to Angus District Nursing Service—That the Parliament welcomes the recent gift of over £3,500 to the Angus District Nursing Service from the charity, Lippen Care; considers that this will greatly benefit those who rely on this service in Montrose, which is in the Angus North and Mearns parliamentary constituency, as it will fund the purchase of four syringe pumps that enable medicines to be given under the skin; believes that these are often used to provide relief from symptoms in cancer care or palliative care; understands that these syringe pumps are a simpler and more comfortable way to administer medication for people who would otherwise need frequent injections or for those whose symptoms are difficult to control with tablets alone, and hopes that the pumps will improve the quality of life of patients.

S4M-11977 Stuart McMillan: The Flying Scotsman is the 2015 World Darts Champion—That the Parliament congratulates "the Flying Scotsman", Gary Anderson, on winning the Professional Darts Corporation’s (PDC) World Darts Championship for the first time at the Alexandra Palace in London, by defeating Phil Taylor, considered the greatest player ever, 7-6; understands that, after what many believe was the most exciting final ever, Gary received the Sid Waddell Trophy and £250,000 in prize money, and wishes him the best for the upcoming Premier League campaign and in all his PDC events.

S4M-11974 Neil Findlay: City Link Workers Treated with Contempt—That the Parliament is disgusted and appalled at the treatment of City Link workers, including some based in Lothian, who, it understands, were told on Christmas Day 2014 that their company had gone into administration, with the jobs to be lost on Hogmanay; is deeply concerned that this announcement was made despite it now being established that administrators were called in in November 2014 and the workforce was not informed; condemns what it considers the callous actions of City Link’s owner, Better Capital, and its founder, John Moulton, who, instead of doing all he could to save the company, appears to have cut and run, leaving misery in his wake while Scottish taxpayers will have to help pick up the bill; calls on the Scottish Government to do all that it can to work with the UK Government to ensure that no stone is left unturned to secure the future of City Link workers and to support an inquiry into the timing of the announcement and the circumstances leading up to that announcement and to examine the allegations of asset stripping and profiteering by Better Capital, and pledges to fully support the RMT union’s campaign for justice for City Link workers.

S4M-11973 Mary Scanlon: Fort William FC, Four-in-a-row—That the Parliament congratulates the players, the manager, Calum MacLean, his coaching team and everyone connected with Fort William FC after it won four successive Highland League games for the first time in its history; understands that the team had won three games in succession, equalling its previous record but was then forced to wait five weeks for the elusive fourth win after waterlogged and frozen pitches meant that games were postponed; notes that the club was established in 1974 and joined the Highland Football League in 1985; welcomes the praise that it considers the club has received for this achievement from other clubs in the Highland League and from football supporters around the country; notes that the 2-1 win that Fort William achieved over Clachnacuddin to secure its fourth successive victory also saw the club win the Simon Shields trophy for the first time; notes that this trophy is played for in memory of Simon Shields who was a talented young footballer who played for both teams until his death from lung cancer at just 23 in 2011, and wishes Fort William FC continued success this season as it builds on its record-breaking run of victories.

S4M-11929# Hanzala Malik: Taliban’s Attack in a School in Peshawar—That the Parliament condemns the actions of the Taliban’s attack in a school in Peshawar, where it opened fire on children and staff members; understands that seven Taliban attackers wearing bomb vests entered the public school and opened fire on children as young as five; understands that at least 132 children and nine staff members are already dead and that a further 125 children were wounded before all seven attackers were killed; believes this to be the deadliest attack by the Taliban; recognises the deep sadness of the Pakistani community in Glasgow and the rest of Scotland; supports the Pakistan government and its agencies in bringing these attackers’ network to justice, and offers its deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to the families of the children and teachers.
S4M-11392# Angus MacDonald: The Need for a Direct Ferry Service Between Scotland and Scandinavia—That the Parliament notes that, following the cessation of the DFDS Harwich to Esbjerg service in September 2014, there is no direct ferry service between the UK and Scandinavia; understands that the historic Newcastle–Stavanger–Bergen service ceased operation in 2008, which meant that there was no direct service between the UK and Norway; believes that a direct service between Scottish and Scandinavian ports would help to increase exports from the Falkirk East constituency and other parts of Scotland to northern Europe while simultaneously attracting tourists with high disposable incomes, and notes the calls for the Scottish Government, the Scotland Office, Scottish Development International and interested regional transport partnerships to work with port and ferry operators to investigate the feasibility of such a project.
S4M-11325# John Mason: Equal Pay—That the Parliament notes the recent report from the Resolution Foundation, which suggests that a record five million people in the UK are stuck in low-paid jobs, including in Glasgow Shettleston; believes that the statutory UK national minimum wage of £6.50 per hour is too low to counterbalance the ever increasing cost of living; understands that the living wage of £7.65 is only a voluntary scheme and is not statutory, therefore does not ensure equal pay protection to all workers in the public, private or voluntary sectors, and notes the belief that the only way to ensure that genuine pay equality is achieved would be to make the living wage a statutory scheme for all employers.
