The description in the bulletin on 1999-11-03 is:
*S1M-242 Mr Alex Salmond: Agriculture and Rural Affairs-That the Parliament recognises the drastic effects of the agricultural recession which has been exacerbated by successive governments' ineptitude over matters such as BSE, Beef on the Bone, the present difficulties in pig farming and the failure to secure European help for hill farmers; acknowledges that there is now a crisis in rural Scotland and that it is being made worse by the continuing effect of the fuel price escalator, the decline of rural public transport, the shortage of affordable rural housing and the failure to support successfully Scotland's tourist industry, and therefore calls upon the Scottish Executive to devise a real and effective rural strategy which could command the backing not only of the whole Parliament but also of the whole of Scotland. Supported by: Fergus Ewing*, Colin Campbell*, Bruce Crawford*, Mr Duncan Hamilton*, Michael Russell*, Richard Lochhead*, Mr John Swinney*, Kay Ullrich*, Alasdair Morgan*
