Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap for Older People (27 Mar 2003)

Dorothy-Grace Elder: No one doubts the minister's sincerity, but I would like an answer to my earlier question. What is the Executive's position on employing people who are over 60? Does it include a complete cut-off at age 60? Some literature seems to indicate that it has, while other literature says that the Executive is not age discriminatory in the least.

Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap for Older People (27 Mar 2003)

Dorothy-Grace Elder: Many visions have floated across our radar today. My favourite, and the point at which I really got the giggles, was when Alex Neil referred to reading various documents while in his pram. My vision was of Alex Neil sitting in his pram, dribbling mush down his bib and thinking, "I have got to like mush. When I grow up, I think I will go into politics." A bonnie fechter is Alex Neil. I am glad...

Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap for Older People (27 Mar 2003)

Dorothy-Grace Elder: Oh, go on. The minister's comment was exceedingly kind. I know that she will work on and perhaps take on the Carntyne incinerator case. If I can help with anything, I certainly will. I have found out in politics that what counts are individuals, irrespective of party. Margaret Curran has been a staunch supporter of people when they have needed help. I want to finish by thanking the people who...

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (Contingency Planning) (19 Mar 2003)

Dorothy-Grace Elder: I will ask a question that was asked by the children who marched today, of whom some members are extremely proud. Given that the First Minister has repeatedly mentioned evil regimes that appear to need sorting out, does he support the invasion of other countries that are controlled by evil regimes, such as Zimbabwe, or is the murderous Mr Mugabe safe because he does not have oil?

Scottish Parliament: European Year of Disabled People (27 Feb 2003)

Dorothy-Grace Elder: I apologise to members, as I have to nip out after my speech to see someone urgently, but I will return.

Indeed, I also want to express gratitude to the European Community for taking the initiative to have a European year of people with disabilities. I share some of Michael Matheson's cynicism...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Community Pharmacies (20 Feb 2003)

Dorothy-Grace Elder: I am glad to hear the strength of the First Minister's replies. Basically, we are looking for his support for the family-run pharmacy businesses, which have suffered enough. The supermarkets are greedy giants and have already eaten up too many family pharmacy businesses throughout Scotland. That must be curbed. The First Minister must acknowledge that the family pharmacies do the hard work,...
