Motion: Muscular Dystrophy and Related Neuromuscular Conditions
That this Assembly welcomes The McCollum Report: Access to specialist neuromuscular care in Northern Ireland; is concerned about the lack of specialised neuromuscular services revealed in the report; believes that a lead for muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular conditions should be appointed from within Health and Social Care; recognises that significant funds are being wasted on unplanned emergency admissions to hospital; notes that investing small amounts in the development of specialised neuromuscular services can lead to a reduction in these unplanned emergency admissions; further recognises the vital evidence provided by the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's Northern Ireland Muscle Group during the All Party Group on Muscular Dystrophy Inquiry; and calls on the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety to act on the recommendations in the report.

Motion: Support for Councillor Sammy Brush
That this Assembly extends support, without qualification, to Samuel Brush, a DUP councillor, who, while working as a postman, was shot and survived an assassination attempt by the convicted terrorist Gerry McGeough; stands by the victims of terrorism; and expresses revulsion at those who side with would-be murderers rather than an innocent public servant.
