Scottish Parliament: Women’s and Girls’ Rights in Afghanistan (30 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: I thank members for their passionate words and I especially thank Michelle Thomson for bringing this debate to the chamber. The Scottish Government is committed to promoting democracy, human rights and the rule of law, both at home and abroad, recognising Scotland’s role as a good global citizen. Through dialogue, we seek to promote international human rights standards; debates...

Angus Robertson: The Scottish Government supports a range of cultural activities in communities across Scotland. We provide targeted support for culture through our funding of local authorities and public bodies, including Creative Scotland. Our funding for the youth music initiative has supported projects in Cowdenbeath that offer meaningful music-making opportunities to young people, helping to build their...

Scottish Parliament: General Question Time: Support for Cultural Activities (Cowdenbeath) (30 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: The Scottish Government recognises the significant impact that the miners strike continues to have in communities throughout Scotland. That is why we introduced legislation to provide a pardon to miners and other participants in the strike. We continue to call on the United Kingdom Government to undertake a full UK-wide public inquiry into the strike. I appreciate that Ms Ewing...

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: The Scottish Government’s preference is that the United Kingdom joins Erasmus+ and the UK Government rejoins Creative Europe. That is the answer to Stephen Kerr’s question.

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: No. I begin by praising Dr Alasdair Allan for lodging his motion about Europe day, on which we mark the day in 1950 when Robert Schuman proposed bringing French and West German coal and steel production under a single authority. That happened on the day after the anniversary of the surrender of Nazi Germany on 8 May 1945; it is absolutely right to acknowledge the connection between...

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: Of course. I am pleased to give way.

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: In point of fact, Stephen Kerr is wrong. The Scottish Government has been looking at all the options, but what has become abundantly clear to us is that the Turing scheme is not more expansive than Erasmus+ for students in Europe; it is a reduced offer. I had the pleasure of sitting next to the UK ambassador when I was in discussions with the European Commission about the offer...

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: The European Union has made it abundantly clear that the United Kingdom would be welcome back in the Erasmus+ scheme and the creative Europe programme. Does he agree that that would be the right thing to do?

Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2024 (23 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: The current UK Government has, sensibly, rejoined the horizon programme. Does Mr Choudhury agree that, given that it has been possible to rejoin European programmes, a priority for any Government should include rejoining the Erasmus+ and creative Europe programmes?

Scottish Parliament: General Question Time: Historic Environment Scotland Properties ( 9 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: The work on the properties in care is on-going. Consequently, the position is constantly changing. In order to provide the member with the most up-to-date figure on the percentage of sites that remain partially closed, I have asked Historic Environment Scotland to write to the member directly with a full response.

Scottish Parliament: General Question Time: Historic Environment Scotland Properties ( 9 May 2024)

Angus Robertson: I hear the concern that Finlay Carson has raised. As I mentioned in my previous answer, Historic Environment Scotland will write to him directly. Should he have any further issues or concerns, I have assured him that I would welcome a follow-up discussion on the matter. We are all committed to safety at historic sites and to their speediest reopening, and having accurate information serves us...

Scottish Parliament: Portfolio Question Time: Support for Culture (North East Scotland) (24 Apr 2024)

Angus Robertson: Since the previous external affairs questions, the United Nations has concluded its review of the report of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, which has delivered aid in Gaza for the Scottish Government. Germany is now resuming aid through UNRWA, joining the European Union and many others. We wish to put on record that we call on the United...

Scottish Parliament: Portfolio Question Time: Support for Culture (North East Scotland) (24 Apr 2024)

Angus Robertson: I commend Maurice Golden for his long-standing advocacy and Dundee for the flexibility and innovation that it has shown throughout the transformation of the city. That is affirmed in the designation of Dundee as the first and only United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization city of design in the United Kingdom. The Scottish Government has invested £38 million...

Scottish Parliament: Portfolio Question Time: Support for Culture (North East Scotland) (24 Apr 2024)

Angus Robertson: First, I give a huge word of thanks to organisations across the north-east of Scotland for contributing to the public consultation for the international culture strategy. Contributions from organisations such as Scottish Sculpture Workshop, Deveron Projects and Peacock Visual Arts were vital to the strategy’s development. The international culture strategy sets out a ...

Scottish Parliament: Portfolio Question Time: Census Data (24 Apr 2024)

Angus Robertson: The first results from the 2022 census were published by National Records of Scotland on Thursday 14 September 2023. The first outputs included estimates of the total population of Scotland and the population sizes in every local authority area, including a breakdown by five-year age groups and sex. They also showed the change in population since the previous census in 2011. The...

Scottish Parliament: Portfolio Question Time: Census Data (24 Apr 2024)

Angus Robertson: Jamie Halcro Johnston is absolutely right to draw attention to the importance of census data to the delivery of public services throughout Scotland, including the north of Scotland and the northern isles, which I know are very close to his heart. There was a change in the latest census through the inclusion of what is known as administrative data, which allows for greater...
