Scottish Parliament: Homecoming Scotland 2009 (8 Jan 2009)

Of course I would say that: as Iain Smith pointed out, the homecoming was devised and directed under—Iain will forgive me—the previous Labour-led Administration. I take this opportunity to pay tribute to the work done by Jack McConnell, who is with us in the chamber today. As First Minister, he was deeply committed to the homecoming...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Scottish Trades Union Congress (Meetings) (2 Oct 2008)

Margaret Curran: As I understand it, the cabinet secretary has refused a request to meet the STUC women's committee and offered them Stewart Maxwell instead. I am sure that Mr Maxwell has a lot to learn from the women of the STUC, but nonetheless I ask the cabinet secretary to reconsider. In times of pay dispute, such a meeting would afford an opportunity for her to explain to women who are among the lowest...

I found the programme interesting. Indeed, one of the sports that I was...

Scottish Parliament: Funding Community Sport (25 Sep 2008)

Margaret Curran: Oh, gosh! If the recent Beijing Olympics and Paralympics inspired people, how much more inspired will they be if the games happen on their doorstep?

We must ensure that we maximise...
