Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (16 Sep 1999)

Margaret Curran: With all due respect to Fiona, she must distinguish between her view of what happened at the committee meeting and the decisions that the committee made. It was not the unanimous view of the committee members that they were disappointed with the time scale of the housing legislation. She may have been disappointed, but the committee did not come to that decision.

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (16 Sep 1999)

Margaret Curran: The new politics must be with us, as the Tories are supporting the SNP and dare to lecture us about homelessness. I have heard it all now. I must express some disappointment. As Convener of the Social Inclusion, Housing and Voluntary Sector Committee, I have gone out of my way to make clear to members of that committee that we do not regard any one party as having a monopoly on good...

Scottish Parliament: Breast Cancer (6 Oct 1999)

Margaret Curran: From Ruth Picardie's moving columns in The Observer to our everyday experiences, we are becoming aware of the reality of breast cancer and the key issues that surround it—screening, diagnosis and care. Breast cancer is now properly a key component of the health agenda of Scotland. That prominence has been achieved thanks to the campaigns in the charity and voluntary sector, the dedication...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Violence (27 Oct 1999)

Margaret Curran: I have been involved in the debate on domestic violence for about 20 years. It is gratifying to see how far it has shifted and to have this debate in the Parliament so early in its life. I would like to pay tribute to Roseanna—who is not in the chamber, unfortunately—and to Lyndsay for their speeches. We can genuinely share ownership of this problem, and that gives us great hope. We have...

Scottish Parliament: Voluntary Sector (3 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: Phil Gallie displays a total misunderstanding of the role of the voluntary sector. The voluntary sector has made very clear what it wishes to do. It is in partnership with the Government in certain areas. There is no way that the compact implies any restriction on organisations' independent views—they can still express opinions to the Government. Phil Gallie shows a complete...

Scottish Parliament: Open Question Time — scottish executive: Joint Working (4 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Although you refused Cathie Craigie's question without giving her a chance to rephrase it, you gave Phil Gallie that chance. I do not think that that is fair.

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (10 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: I welcome the minister's announcement, particularly as it relates to Glasgow, the needs of which have duly been recognised. The minister announced research and the establishment of a review group. Can she give us an assurance that the review group, in considering hostel provision in Glasgow, will recognise the complexities of young people's needs? This issue is about not only accommodation,...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Finance: Finance (15 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: To ask the Scottish Executive what the Warm Deal budget will be in 2000-01 and 2001-02.

Scottish Parliament: Social Justice (24 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: I strongly welcome the debate, not only because I am convener of the Social Inclusion, Housing and Voluntary Sector Committee, but because social justice is at the centre of my political philosophy. It is appropriate that it should also be at the foundation of the Government's programme. The strategy shows some appreciation of past failures: we attempted to tackle the born-to-fail generation...

Scottish Parliament: Open Question Time — scottish executive: Landfill (25 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: Does the minister agree that we must respond swiftly to health concerns associated with landfill sites? Can he further reassure me that SEPA will respond swiftly and effectively to the concerns that have been raised by Greater Glasgow Health Board following its investigation into Paterson's tip in the east end of Glasgow?

Scottish Parliament written answers — Environment: Environment (25 Nov 1999)

Margaret Curran: To ask the Scottish Executive what action it plans to take following the publication of Greater Glasgow Health Board’s health report into the Paterson’s landfill site at Mount Vernon.

Scottish Parliament: Equalities (2 Dec 1999)

Margaret Curran: Like other members, I welcome this debate and I am glad to be participating in it. It is fitting that this subject is at the centre of this Parliament's agenda. The equal representation of women is a cause that has been dear to my heart for many years. We should not underestimate the achievement of this Parliament; given the number of women that it contains, it is one of the most advanced...
