*S1M-3847 Pauline McNeill: Firefighters' Dispute-That the Parliament notes that the firefighters' dispute remains unresolved; supports the continued right to strike for an improvement in pay and conditions; further notes the position of Her Majesty's Government which allows for a pay settlement to be imposed by legislation; opposes such an imposition and any proposal for legislation in the Scottish Parliament intended to achieve that, and calls for meaningful talks to be resumed as soon as possible ensuring a fair settlement for firefighters with no detriment to the delivery of fire services to the general public and for any change to future bargaining arrangements to be the subject of consultation and negotiation with the Fire Brigades Union, the STUC and other relevant parties.

*S1M-3846 Johann Lamont: The Right to Vote for Women 75th Anniversary-That the Parliament notes that Thursday 6 February 2003 marks the 75th anniversary of all women gaining the vote; acknowledges and applauds the women of Scotland and across the UK who fought to secure the right of women to vote, and believes that the best testimony to the courage of these women is for all the women of Scotland to use their vote on 1 May 2003.

*S1M-3845 Cathy Peattie: Contracting out of Parliament's Mail Services-That the Parliament notes with concern the possible transfer of mail services to a new operator following the move to the new Parliament building at Holyrood despite widespread satisfaction with the existing service; considers that such major contracts should not be put out to tender without full consultation with trade unions and service users regarding the use of the tendering process and the nature and specifications of such contracts, and, accordingly, calls for a full review of the procurement procedures.

*S1M-3844 Mr Jim Wallace: The Draft Advice and Assistance (Assistance by Way of Representation) (Scotland) Regulations 2003-That the Justice 1 Committee, in consideration of the draft Advice and Assistance (Assistance by Way of Representation) (Scotland) Regulations 2003, recommends that the Regulations be approved.

Supported by: Hugh Henry*

*S1M-3843 Mr Jim Wallace: The Draft Advice and Assistance (Financial Conditions) (Scotland) Regulations 2003-That the Justice 1 Committee, in consideration of the draft Advice and Assistance (Financial Conditions) (Scotland) Regulations 2003, recommends that the Regulations be approved.

<Use of electronic communications or electronic storage in connection with warrants to search

(1) This section, which is without prejudice to section 8 of the Electronic Communications Act 2000 (c.7) (power to modify legislation), applies to warrants to search granted under section 134(1) of the 1995 Act (that is to say, where incidental to proceedings by complaint or although no subsequent proceedings by complaint may follow).

(2) Subject to subsections (1) and (4), the Scottish Ministers may, in relation to warrants to which this section applies, by order modify-

(a) any rule of law; or

(b) the practice and procedure in relation to criminal proceedings,

in such manner as they think fit so as to authorise or facilitate the use of electronic communications or electronic storage (instead of other forms of communication or storage) for any purpose mentioned in subsection (3).

(3) Those purposes are (in relation to the rule of law or the practice and procedure) the purposes mentioned (in relation to the provisions which may be modified under subsection (1) of section 8 of that Act of 2000) in any of paragraphs (a) to (f) of subsection (2) of that section.

(4) The Scottish Ministers are not to make an order under subsection (2) authorising the use of electronic communications or electronic storage for any purpose unless they consider that the authorisation is such that the extent (if any) to which records of things done for that purpose will be available will be no less satisfactory in cases where use is made of electronic communications or electronic storage than in other cases.

(5) Subsections (4) to (6) and (8) of section 8 and (5) and (6) of section 9 of that Act of 2000 apply in relation to an order made under subsection (2) as they apply in relation to an order made under subsection (1) of the said section 8.
