I move amendment No. 2:

To insert the following after “that full pay restoration for these workers must be delivered as a priority.”: “— the strengthening, by the Government, of the linkages between acute and hospice care, in light of the complementarity of services provided where appropriate;

— the recognition, by the Government, of the critical role played by Section 39 hospice organisations such as Marymount Hospice, including the unsustainable financial position being forced on Section 39 hospices due to unequal pay terms; and

— the provision, by the Government, of sufficient funding to Section 39 hospices such that their local fundraising efforts can be directed to capital investment, and therefor not required for normal operating expenses.”
