First Aid Debate, 27/11/13 [S]

Debate in the Scottish Parliament on 27 November 2013  on St Andrew’s First Aid’s “First aid? Count me in” campaign. The debate was opened by James Dornan (SNP).

The motion was debated without any question being put:

That the Parliament congratulates St Andrew’s First Aid on its Count Me In Campaign; notes that it is seeking 34,000 signatories to its pledge, which it understands is the equivalent of the number of household accidents reported on a yearly basis that are taken to hospital where basic first aid would have sufficed; understands that the campaign seeks to educate the almost three-quarters of people in Scotland, including in Glasgow Cathcart, who do not have basic first aid skills, and considers that these skills are crucial in saving lives and removing unnecessary strain on emergency services.

For full details see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 27 November 2013 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
