Chaidh deasbad a chumail an-dè air molaidhean airson Alba san àm ri teachd, a’ gabhail a-steach nam molaidhean airson reafran (referendum) air neo-eisimeileachd.
Mar phàirt de seo, ghabh Seonag NicLaomainn BPA a’ chiad òraid aice mar cheannard Albannach nan Làbarach.
Chithear tar-sgrìobhadh na deasbaid anns an aithisg oifigeil.
Chaidh gabhail ris a’ ghluasad seo às dèidh an deasbaid:
That the Parliament recognises the mandate given to the Scottish Government by the people of Scotland in the May 2011 Scottish election to hold a referendum offering people the choice to decide their future and agrees that it is the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament to decide the timing and arrangements for the referendum; welcomes the announcement of Autumn 2014 as the date for Scotland’s referendum; believes that 16 and 17-year-olds on the electoral roll should have the opportunity to vote, as it is their future along with everyone else’s that will be determined by the result; encourages all Scots to take part in the Scottish Government’s consultation on the referendum to be launched in the week beginning 23 January 2012, and affirms that constitutional change is a process and that what ultimately matters is that the people who care most about Scotland, the people who live in Scotland, achieve a parliament with the powers and responsibilities of independence to grow the economy, create jobs, build a strong society and give all of Scotland’s people the life chances that they deserve.
Bha an reafran am measg nan cuspairean a chaidh a dheasbad air Ceistean don Phrìomh Mhinistear cuideachd agus faodar tar-sgrìobhadh fhaicinn air loidhne san aithisg oifigeil.
