That the Parliament notes the 40th anniversary of MND Scotland, which was founded by John MacLeod in 1981 following his MND diagnosis; congratulates MND Scotland on its campaigning achievements and legislative changes agreed in the Parliament that have improved the lives of people with MND, including the late Gordon Aikman's campaign to double the number of MND specialist nurses, the statutory provision of augmentative and alternative communication for people who have lost their voice, and, most recently, the effective fast-tracking of terminally ill people for Scottish social security benefits; notes the belief that there is still more to do in the Parliament, including the establishment of a national care service and the prioritisation of accessible housing, and further notes the view that Members should work together to continue this progress and help find a cure for this devastating terminal illness.
