Margaret Curran: Is Nicola Sturgeon's concern today the powers of the Scottish Parliament and what it does, or violence against women? Which one is it?

Scottish Parliament: Mike Tyson (24 May 2000)

Margaret Curran: I have been trying to intervene to make this point, because it is the nub of the argument about the powers of the Parliament and how we handle this debate. I have every respect for SNP members who are committed to the issue of violence against women. If we are honest, there is a debate about that in all parties; it is time that we all recognised that. This is not quite the tidy party...

Scottish Parliament: Mike Tyson (24 May 2000)

Margaret Curran: We have heard strong views on this issue, both for and against Tyson coming to Scotland. Most of the debate, properly, has focused on his criminal conviction for rape. Rape is the most horrific violation of a woman and a brutal exercise of power. It seems that Mike Tyson is to be for ever connected to the horror of his past. I argue today that only he can dissociate himself from that. Those...

Margaret Curran: I am delighted to be one of the first Glasgow MSPs to welcome the Parliament to Glasgow. I strongly welcome the decision to move here, albeit temporarily.

It has made a significant contribution to Scotland....

Scottish Parliament: Point of Order (17 May 2000)

Margaret Curran: I do not know whether Annabel Goldie got clearance from David McLetchie for her comments, given that he has systematically criticised the Executive for creating ministries to respond to different problems. I am pleased with the Executive's creation of the post of Minister for Communities to address Glasgow's problems. Some will reject my position, but Glasgow always provides space for the...

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Poindings and Warrant Sales Bill: Stage 1 (27 Apr 2000)

Margaret Curran: It is safe to say that I will agree with my pal from Pollok—just as well, as she is sitting beside me. I welcome the debate and I do not underestimate the difficulties that we face in it. It has been recognised from the start that there are complexities relating to the bill. There is the fundamental fact that we in Scotland face a two-edged sword: we must deal with people who want to get...
