[S1M-790] Decision Time — 4 May 2000 at 17:02
This looks like the vote on S1M-790
The description in the bulletin on 2000-05-03 is:
*S1M-790 David Mundell: Services for Elderly and Disabled People—That the Parliament notes that many elderly and disabled citizens across Scotland feel let down by the Scottish Executive and its failure to deal with issues which most directly affect them; further notes that such citizens are being faced with escalating charges for variable social and other services provided by local authorities; believes that many local authorities are taking measures which restrict choice for the elderly in their selection of nursing or residential care; considers that a lack of local authority resources for nursing home places and a lack of co-ordination between health and social work has led to a 40% increase in bed blocking in the NHS since 1997; recognises that local authorities are systematically withdrawing financial support from facilities used by elderly and disabled citizens, and calls upon the Scottish Executive to abandon its agenda of political correctness and replace it with a programme that delivers to Scotland’s elderly and disabled citizens affordable services, freedom of choice in care and the dignity and respect they deserve within our society. Supported by: David McLetchie*, Miss Annabel Goldie*, John Scott*, Mrs Lyndsay McIntosh*, John Young*, Mr Keith Harding*, Mary Scanlon*, Alex Johnstone*
