Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Budget (Scottish Government’s Response) (28 Oct 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: —equality, fairness and improving the lives of people in Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries (Final Cost and Delivery Date of New Vessels) (27 Oct 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Islanders look forward to the MV Glen Sannox joining the Ardrossan to Brodick route. Can the minister advise what progress is being made with the Ardrossan harbour redevelopment, which he has just mentioned, in order that the MV Glen Sannox can sail to and from Ardrossan at the earliest possible opportunity?

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (26 Oct 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: I apologise, Presiding Officer. On a point of order, I was unable to get into the app on time. I would have voted no.

Scottish Parliament: Carer’s Allowance Supplement (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (7 Oct 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: On a point of order. I was unable to vote, but I would have voted no.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery Strategy (5 Oct 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: With gas prices rocketing, it is heartening that the NHS, local authorities and other public sector bodies that use the Scottish Government’s national collaborative framework for natural gas supply will see no price increase in wholesale gas costs in this financial year, as was agreed last April. Can the Deputy First Minister say what impact rising fuel prices will have on...

Scottish Parliament: Health and Social Care (Winter Planning) (5 Oct 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Because of the increase in Covid-19 admissions and staff sickness absences, and rising accident and emergency attendances, NHS Ayrshire and Arran is under tremendous pressure. From the very welcome £300 million that the cabinet secretary has announced, what initial support will be provided across NHS Ayrshire and Arran and its aligned health and social care partnerships to reduce further...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Impact on Supply Chain and Labour Market (30 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Yesterday, the Tories posed as defenders of this Parliament—a Parliament that they actively campaigned against re-establishing. Their blustering had as much credibility as the Orange order defending the Vatican. Today, the Tories have exposed their ostrich mentality by simply ignoring the realities of a Brexit that they imposed on an unwilling Scotland. Their irresponsible “It’ll be all...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Impact on Supply Chain and Labour Market (30 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: I do not think it helps that the DVLA has a backlog of 4,000 new HGV licences and 50,000 licence renewals to process. As a matter of competence, when the UK Government knew that the problem was coming, why could it not have had more staff in place to deal with that important issue? Labour politicians share responsibility for the fiasco. Their duplicitous policy of constructive ambiguity—of...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery (Ayrshire) (22 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government how its policies and actions across Government will support Ayrshire’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. (S6O-00167)

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery (Ayrshire) (22 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: The Scottish Government is establishing a £500 million transition fund for the north-east of Scotland. With the closure of Hunterston B in January and the loss of some 570 jobs over the next three years, will the cabinet secretary consider a transition fund for north Ayrshire, as part of its Covid-19 recovery, in order to help with the transition from nuclear power to renewables?

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Update (21 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: I am heartened by the roll-out of vaccine booster doses, which will greatly reduce the vulnerability of older people to Covid-19 this winter. Sadly, however, anti-vaxxers, with an increasingly hysterical tone and ever more ludicrous accusations, continue to denounce the vaccination programme and all associated with it. For those in that group who are prepared to listen, can the First Minister...

Scottish Parliament: Cultural Sector (Support) (9 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: 8. To ask the Scottish Government how it is supporting the cultural sector’s recovery in the current financial year, including the provision of funding. (S6O-00122)

Scottish Parliament: Cultural Sector (Support) (9 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Pre-pandemic, there was a huge discrepancy in the disbursement of funds and support over the culture sector. We acknowledge that large cities have national collections but, even so, Glasgow received 25 times the funding per capita that North Ayrshire received. Will the cabinet secretary confirm that such discrepancies will be tackled as we build back better?

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (8 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: For island communities, life can still be all too easily disrupted by the pandemic. Last month, over 11 days at the height of the summer season, 65 ferry sailings to and from Brodick were lost, primarily due to positive Covid-19 tests among CalMac Ferries crew members, which caused massive disruption. As we head into autumn and winter, what protocols are being put in place to minimise further...

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (Impact of Parental Smoking) (2 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what its assessment is of the impact parental smoking has on child poverty. (S6O-00089)

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (Impact of Parental Smoking) (2 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Billions of pounds have rightly been invested in protecting people from Covid-19 and yet smoking remains a huge killer year on year, with 9,332 deaths in Scotland being directly attributable to smoking in 2018. Given that smoking disproportionately impacts on the most deprived households, and taking into account the health and financial cost to families, what more will the Scottish Government...

Scottish Parliament: Supporting the People of Afghanistan (2 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Does Mr Cameron believe that consideration should now be given to providing indefinite leave to remain to Afghans already living in the UK so that genuine refugees are not forced to return to Taliban-run Afghanistan?

Scottish Parliament: Supporting the People of Afghanistan (2 Sep 2021)

Kenneth Gibson: Will the member give way?
