There are 12 questions to be put as a result of today's business. Before I put any of them, I have a small point of order of my own. Members will be aware that rule 7.3.1 of our standing orders requires members at all times to

"conduct themselves in a courteous and respectful manner".

The Presiding Officers are concerned that this morning and yesterday, some members who took part in debates did not turn up for the wind-up speeches. We think that that habit is discourteous and not respectful. I accept that there will be occasions when members simply cannot be in two places at once, but there is an obligation on members who will not be here for the wind-up to explain that to the chamber during their speeches. We would like that to be a courteous convention.

The first question is, that amendment S1M-3194.2, in the name of Cathy Jamieson, which seeks to amend motion S1M-3194, in the name of Lord James Douglas-Hamilton, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Members:

No.

That the Parliament recognises the problems faced by those local communities where a disproportionate amount of crime and disorder is caused by a small number of persistent offenders; considers it a priority to reduce youth disorder and youth offending; welcomes Scotland's Action Plan to reduce youth crime and the establishment of Youth Justice Teams in each local authority; believes that effective disposals and programmes must be available to the Children's Hearings System which make young offenders face up to the consequences of their behaviour; supports all parties involved in the youth justice system to play a full role and be accountable for their actions, and welcomes the Executive's continuing focus on improving the youth justice system in order to reduce youth crime, the fear of youth crime and build safer communities.
