That this House congratulates West College Scotland on being officially awarded Carer Positive Employer in Scotland status in recognition of the support the College provides to staff caring for a loved one; notes that the Carer Positive award is a Scottish Government-funded initiative which has been developed with the support of a strong partnership of private, public and voluntary sector employers in Scotland; further notes that West College Scotland employs 1,300 people across its Clydebank, Greenock and Paisley campuses, the equivalent of one per cent of total regional employment; and calls on employers in the West of Scotland region, across Scotland and throughout the UK to take steps to become Carer Positive employers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
