The fourth question is, that motion S2M-103, in the name of Peter Peacock, on young people, as amended, be agreed to.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.

[Resolved,]

That the Parliament celebrates the contribution made to society by the young people of Scotland, both at home and abroad; applauds their dynamism, intellect, enthusiasm, enterprise, creativity and individuality; will work in partnership with young people to help meet their aspirations; believes that the establishment of the new Children's Commissioner, measures to reform education by ensuring that the curriculum is built around the needs of the child and that education takes place in the most modern facilities, extending access to high quality sport and leisure facilities and support for youth work and volunteering will help young people to reach their full potential and participate in society; recognises that some young people require additional support and measures to do so, and commits itself whenever possible to making sure that appropriate support is provided whilst recognising the central role played by parents and families in enabling young people to become responsible adults and therefore fulfil their potential.

I have one small item of housekeeping. We are hoping to complete the cover photograph for the current annual report after this item of business. As the report relates to the previous session, I ask returning members who wish to be in the photograph to make their way out through the exterior entry down the steps towards the Mound. It will take about five minutes.
