Kate Maclean: To ask the Scottish Executive what measures are in place to encourage convenience stores and retailers in Dundee to promote healthy food. (S2O-11696)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Healthy Food (Dundee) (18 Jan 2007)

Kate Maclean: Does the minister agree that making healthy food available in deprived communities does not in itself change the culture of unhealthy eating? Is he aware of the great work that Dundee healthy living initiative is doing to teach people basic cooking skills on a budget and to allow them to experiment and try healthy food at no cost to them? Unfortunately, that successful scheme has no...

Scottish Parliament: Adoption and Children (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: After section 9 (7 Dec 2006)

Kate Maclean: I speak strongly against Michael McMahon's amendment 86. If we insert the provision that it proposes into the bill, we will give a green light to adoption agencies to discriminate. The main priority of any adoption agency, faith-based or otherwise, should be the good of the children with whom they are dealing. If we give any agency the right to discriminate, that will not be the case.

Scottish Parliament: Adoption and Children (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: After section 9 (7 Dec 2006)

Kate Maclean: No, I am not happy with the guidance. Two wrongs do not make a right. The anti-discrimination legislation that will come into force next year will take care of that and will probably make the provision that amendment 86 would insert obsolete anyway. If any organisation feels that for ethical or moral reasons it cannot conduct its business within the law, it should not be in that business. I...

Scottish Parliament: Care Inquiry (20 Sep 2006)

Kate Maclean: Like other members of the Health Committee, I think that the post-legislative scrutiny was a useful exercise, and the way in which it was structured meant that it was thorough. We had an event at the start to set the remit, then went on visits to speak to service users and take lots of evidence. I am probably in a minority of one, because I was not a great fan of the free personal care...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Health and Community Care: Bone Marrow Donation (29 Jun 2006)

Kate Maclean: To ask the Scottish Executive what steps it is taking to raise public awareness of the opportunities for registering as a potential bone marrow donor. (S2O-10358)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Health and Community Care: Bone Marrow Donation (29 Jun 2006)

Kate Maclean: Is the minister aware that, in England, first-time blood donors are asked whether they would like to go on the register of potential bone marrow donors? Since that started, the number of potential bone marrow donors has increased and people have not been put off giving blood. Will the minister consider taking such proactive steps in Scotland to raise public awareness of the routes to...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Finance and Public Services and Communities: Funding Initiatives (Deprived Communities) (22 Jun 2006)

Kate Maclean: To ask the Scottish Executive what plans are in place to ensure that services currently funded through its temporary funding initiatives, and which are beginning to have a positive impact in the most deprived communities, continue to receive its financial support. (S2O-10298)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Finance and Public Services and Communities: Funding Initiatives (Deprived Communities) (22 Jun 2006)

Kate Maclean: Is the minister aware that, in Dundee, funding that amounts to more than £15 million for—among others—quality of life funding, community regeneration funding and the cities growth fund will all end on 31 March 2008? Does he recognise the need to move away from temporary funding of that nature? What assurances can the Scottish Executive give on the longer-term sustainability of crucial...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Health: Health (18 May 2006)

Scottish Parliament: Bridge Tolls (30 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: If the Executive amendment is successful, will the SNP support the status quo or the amended motion?

Scottish Parliament: Bridge Tolls (30 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: Does Iain Smith accept that if tolls were removed from any bridge in Scotland, the bridges would be taken over as part of the trunk road network and would be funded in exactly the same way as the rest of that network?

Scottish Parliament: Bridge Tolls (30 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: In response to Tavish Scott's remarks about people, organisations and agencies not commenting on the removal of tolls during the review, I say that Dundee City Council, the Tay Road Bridge Joint Board, I and other MSPs have responded to public opinion. I would have thought that, as elected representatives, we are here to respond to public opinion. Public opinion, certainly in Dundee, has been...

Scottish Parliament: Bridge Tolls (30 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: Trish Godman spoke up on behalf of the people who work on the Erskine bridge, who have been caused a great deal of distress by the short timescale for the removal of tolls there. I have a problem with the timescale in the motion. I also have a problem with the Executive amendment, which has no real timescale. I would like the minister to address that in his summing-up speech. We need to...

Scottish Parliament: Bridge Tolls (30 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: What does Shona Robison mean by now? Can she outline her timescale?

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Prime Minister (Meetings) (16 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: Is the Deputy First Minister aware that Tesco's announcement that it will relocate its distribution depot from its current location in my constituency of Dundee West will result in the loss of more than 430 jobs? Does he share my grave concern about the effect of the decision—for which no plausible justification has yet been given—on the loyal and skilled workforce, which has helped to...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Tay Road Bridge (Tolls) (16 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: To ask the First Minister what consideration has been given to abolishing tolls on the Tay road bridge. (S2F-2183)

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Tay Road Bridge (Tolls) (16 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: I note the Deputy First Minister's answer. Is he aware that there is huge cross-party, multi-agency and public support for the abolition of tolls on the Tay bridge? Is he aware that a massive 96.9 per cent of respondents to The Courier 's scrap the tolls campaign voted to scrap the tolls? Given that the report that was referred to in general questions and on which the Minister for Transport...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Concessionary Fares Scheme (Young People) (16 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: To ask the Scottish Executive when it will announce the concessionary fares scheme for young people. (S2O-09302)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Concessionary Fares Scheme (Young People) (16 Mar 2006)

Kate Maclean: As the number of students and young people in training in my Dundee West constituency is higher than the average, the introduction of the scheme will be welcome there. Will the minister tell me what measures the Scottish Executive intends to take to encourage young people to take up their concessionary travel entitlement? Unlike elderly people, young people have never expected to have a...
