Motion text

That this House acknowledges that Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath constituency has three Fairtrade towns, Dalgety Bay, Burntisland and Lochgelly, which is more than any other constituency in Fife; understands that Dalgety Bay is one of the leaders of the Fairtrade movement in Fife; recognises that the Fairtrade Foundation is a global organisation that strives to ensure that farmers and workers get a better deal for their produce; further understands that the Foundation's Show Your Hand campaign seeks to highlight the requirement for international aid and development; congratulates the efforts of all of those working within Fife and beyond to ensure that global trade can work for the poor, with particular emphasis on sustainable development; and calls on the Government to do everything in its power to ensure that trade is fair, and that the poor and disadvantaged do not suffer as a result of unfair trade agreements.
