Does she agree with Alex Neil, who said this...

Scottish Parliament: Housing Needs (8 May 2008)

Margaret Curran: Oh—9 minutes. Thank you, Presiding Officer. Jim Tolson made an entertaining speech in which he quoted an answer from Stewart Maxwell. Stewart Maxwell gave another woeful performance today and we look forward to more interesting answers when we interrogate his figures.

Scottish Parliament: Housing Needs (8 May 2008)

Alex Neil's speech was interesting, because we are beginning to see a hint of SNP back benchers pushing the Government a wee bit further and encouraging it to take a more radical stance. I congratulate Alex Neil on that. The GHA issue is important and I associate myself with the comments of Robert Brown and many others on it. It is only fair to put on record our acknowledgement of...

Scottish Parliament: Housing Needs (8 May 2008)

Margaret Curran: It is completely disrespectful to the chamber for Tricia Marwick to walk in here at the end of a debate and intervene. That is against all parliamentary practice.

The amendments that have been lodged by the Lib Dems and the Tories, as well as the Labour motion, reflect a...
