Scottish Parliament: Charter of Rights for People with Dementia and their Carers (9 Oct 2019)

Christine Grahame: I congratulate Sandra White on securing this debate and those in the gallery who have stayed this long. I note what Jeremy Balfour said about 90,000 people suffering from dementia. However, I want to talk about only one case. Unfortunately, as we get older, we sometimes see our friends succumbing to dementia. It is a dreadful, slow killer of personality. The first time that I noticed that a...

Scottish Parliament: Control of Dogs (Scotland) Act 2010 (Post-legislative Scrutiny) (1 Oct 2019)

Christine Grahame: Well, I ask the Government to consult just on the technicalities and not on whether there should be a database. I am moving on with another bill, which is on responsible dog ownership, because the problems start from the moment somebody acquires a puppy. People might acquire a dog spontaneously and on impulse—they might see it on the internet and buy it on Gumtree—and might not think...
