The final item of business is a members' business debate on motion S2M-3243, in the name of Helen Eadie, which is that supporters hope that the Scottish Football Association will admit John Thomson to the hall of fame. The debate will be concluded without any question being put.

Motion debated,

That the Parliament notes that football supporters across Scotland continue to honour the memory of John Thomson, the young Celtic football player who so tragically lost his life in 1931; further notes that the people of Cardenden, in particular, and Scotland, generally, have continued annually since his death to honour and pay tribute to this legendary international football player who continues to serve as a role model for Scotland's children as a person who was so decent, so upstanding and so honoured for setting standards for behaviour in football of all that is best, and hopes that the Scottish Football Association will admit John Thomson to Scotland's Hall of Fame.
