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.

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?

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: 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.

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Violence (27 Oct 1999)

Margaret Curran: I have been involved in the debate on domestic violence for about 20 years.

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.

She may have been disappointed, but the committee did not come to that decision.
