[S3M-3078] Decision Time — 11 Dec 2008 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S3M-3078

The description in the bulletin on 2008-12-10 is:

*S3M-3078 Rhona Brankin: Kinship Care—That the Parliament notes the commitment given by the First Minister on 27 September 2007 to provide allowances for kinship carers and ensure that funding would be brought forward to ensure that all kinship carers of looked-after children in Scotland were paid the recommended allowance for foster carers; further notes the commitment contained in the Scottish Government’s strategy, Getting it right for every child in kinship and foster care, to introduce a minimum national allowance of between £119 and £198 per week for kinship carers and the comments of the Minister for Children and Early Years in the subsequent debate on 5 December 2007 that he anticipated that payment of this allowance would begin in April 2008; is concerned that this has not materialised and that the vast majority of kinship carers are not in receipt of an allowance consistent with the promises made by both the Minister for Children and Early Years and the First Minister, and therefore calls on the Scottish Government to honour in full its pledge to Scotland’s kinship carers and to properly recognise the vital role that kinship carers play in looking after some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children.
