Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Knife Crime (Glasgow) (1 Oct 2009)

Margaret Curran: I argue that we have seen little progress on knife crime and point out that when it comes to crime, a postcode lottery exists in Scotland. Given that Glasgow has the highest level of recorded crime in Scotland, will the cabinet secretary provide Glasgow with any extra resources or introduce any extra measures to deal with knife crime in the city? Will he also explain why he accepted a cut in...

Scottish Parliament: School Buildings (8 Oct 2009)

Margaret Curran: I thank the cabinet secretary for finally giving way to me. I ask the cabinet secretary why he is replying to the debate. Is he stepping into the education team? When was that decision taken and why? Also, given that he is the finance secretary, can he tell us specifically how much the Scottish Futures Trust will contribute to the building of schools in this session of Parliament?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (29 Oct 2009)

Margaret Curran: Last autumn, the world's financial system stood on the precipice. Without action, we would have faced a collapse of the banks and possibly the implosion of the financial system, with catastrophic consequences for the global economy. We are told that, ultimately, all politics is local, but to miss the global dimensions of the experience—as the Tories have done this afternoon—and not to...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (29 Oct 2009)

Margaret Curran: I do not have time. As Wendy Alexander said, when are we ever going to find out what the SNP actually thinks about the economic analysis and what its response to the situation would have been? The SNP always tries to face two ways. As we are beginning to understand, those who do that finally become unstuck. We know—especially those of us who have been around in Scottish politics for a wee...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (29 Oct 2009)

Margaret Curran: We need more time to go into the issue in greater depth, but I was trying to argue that in the past decade Labour has taken us into new territory, where it is possible to create an honest partnership between business and public services, and that Government intervention is at the heart of that. The SNP Government is deceitful about that.

Scottish Parliament: Glasgow Airport Rail Link (4 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: Robert Brown commented on the presence of two cabinet ministers. I ask him to comment on the absence of the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change—as I wish to reflect on the minister's role in the matter—and on the absence of a number of SNP Glasgow back benchers.

Scottish Parliament: Glasgow Airport Rail Link (4 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: I say with no disrespect to the cabinet secretary that he should not flatter himself; I criticised not his presence, but the absence of others. The ministers who are responsible for decisions are not being held properly accountable to the Parliament. Fiona Hyslop should have faced the questions and Stewart Stevenson should face Parliament, too.

Scottish Parliament: Sex Offenders (5 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: I ask the cabinet secretary to demonstrate a little patience with members who legitimately ask questions about resources and the practice of the Government—it is a perfectly reasonable activity on our part. Has the cabinet secretary specifically examined the details of yesterday's conviction of Mr Randall, to which Robert Brown alluded? Despite the fact that Mr Randall had been on the sex...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Commonwealth Games 2014 (Support) (19 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: Does the First Minister appreciate the deep frustration that is felt by those of us in Glasgow who have worked so hard to bring the Commonwealth games to the city at his attempts always to pass the buck and blame other people whenever we raise an issue about them? Whether he likes it or not—

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Commonwealth Games 2014 (Support) (19 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: How does the First Minister square in his own mind this great commitment that he parades so publicly with the cancellation of the Glasgow airport rail link project which, as he knows, was a vital part of the bid document? Will he attempt to reinstate his credibility by reinstating the GARL project?
