Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Finance and Sustainable Growth: Car and Van Ownership (Glasgow) (19 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: The Scottish household survey also said that 50 per cent of households in the 15 per cent most deprived areas do not have a car, whereas the figure is 25 per cent for the rest of Scotland, so people in Glasgow are particularly reliant on public transport for work and leisure. Is it fair to conclude that the decision to cancel the Glasgow airport rail link project will have a disproportionate...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Air-gun Incidents (26 Nov 2009)

Margaret Curran: Does the First Minister recall the terrible incident of the death of Andrew Morton, whose family were my constituents? I genuinely ask the First Minister to agree that this is not the day to play politics with the issue, but instead—[ Interruption. ] Genuinely, First Minister, this was a terrible incident, and the family have suffered terribly. Today, I ask the First Minister to join me in...

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (2 Dec 2009)

Margaret Curran: I come to the issue from a slightly different perspective from that of Christine Grahame, as I represent an area in one of our bigger cities. The minister will know—I have written to him about this—that whenever there is an old firm game, the incidence of domestic abuse increases, putting particular pressure on Women's Aid groups in my area. I ask him to ensure that that is fed into the...

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (2 Dec 2009)

Margaret Curran: We come again to our annual debate on this subject, which has become a standard feature of the parliamentary calendar and is, as many members have said, related to the 16 days of activism. As the minister said in his opening speech, a consensus around the core elements of this work has been established in the Parliament, and it is fair to say that some progress has been made over the 10 years...

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (2 Dec 2009)

Margaret Curran: I think that I am running out of time. That month can give a family the time that it needs, so the question about the Government's sentencing direction is critical. If we make a decision on sentencing in another debate, that could have huge implications for what we will be saying in a debate on this issue next year. The sentencing policy is something that we radically need to address soon.

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (2 Dec 2009)

Margaret Curran: Will the minister address Angela Constance's point on the Government's sentencing policy? That issue is germane to the debate and we need clarity on it from the Government.

Scottish Parliament: Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jan 2010)

Margaret Curran: I thank the minister very much for taking an intervention—I do not intend to hold him back too much. I cannot pretend that I jumped for joy when Paul Martin told me that I was going to be a member of the Subordinate Legislation Committee, but I am even more surprised that I have been a star turn in this debate without having said a word, which is quite an achievement for me. I want to...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Jobs Summit (14 Jan 2010)

Margaret Curran: Can I surprise the First Minister by thanking him for holding the jobs summit in my constituency? It was extremely worth while. Was he aware that many of those who attended said that the construction industry plays a vital role in creating jobs in the east end of Glasgow? When Labour was in power, 14 new schools were built or commissioned but, since the Scottish National Party came to power,...

Scottish Parliament: Factoring Services (4 Mar 2010)

Margaret Curran: The debate is welcome, because its subject matters enormously to many people. As we have heard throughout the debate, many of our constituents have raised concerns about factoring issues. It is telling that we could all easily recount examples of the scale of the problems that we face in that regard. I, too, congratulate Patricia Ferguson on bringing forward her proposed bill. I am pleased...
