Scottish Parliament: Rape Cases (Protection of Victims) (26 Jan 2000)

Margaret Curran: I am sorry to interrupt, but I have a question on procurators fiscal before the minister moves on. Is it possible to find out how many reports were submitted to the procurator's office over the past year, how many were not pursued and what the reasons were for non-pursual?

Scottish Parliament: Drug Misuse (20 Jan 2000)

Margaret Curran: One of the problems with Tommy Sheridan's approach is that the greatest clamour for enforcement comes from deprived communities and from the people who live with the situation daily. This Parliament has a duty to listen to those people above all others when they tell us not to legalise cannabis and to retain enforcement policies. They support the Executive's balanced proposals, as I do. I...

Scottish Parliament: Drug Misuse (20 Jan 2000)

Margaret Curran: With every due respect, Margo, I am very short of time and I do not think that these issues have been raised.

In our...

Scottish Parliament: Drug Misuse (20 Jan 2000)

Margaret Curran: I have to get on, Margo. We should be aware of the resilience, courage and determination that exists throughout Scotland, and which presents us with a real opportunity.

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.

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.
