Scottish Parliament: International Situation (2 Jun 2004)

Campbell Martin: Steady on—I will come to Labour members later. I thank my friends in the Scottish Socialist Party for allowing me to contribute to the debate, which has been interesting. My good friend John Swinney, the leader of the Scottish National Party, made an interesting point when he said that to pull troops out of Iraq now would mean leaving Iraqis to their fate. I would have thought that the...

Scottish Parliament: International Situation (2 Jun 2004)

Scottish Parliament: Nursery Nurses (Pay and Conditions) (1 Apr 2004)

Campbell Martin: This debate is extremely important. It is not just about the nursery nurses fighting for a decent wage; it is also about the scandal of low pay and the scandal of unequal pay in Scotland. The nursery nurses are to be congratulated on taking a firm stand in that fight. The nursery nurses' dispute crystallises just how far to the right on the political spectrum new Labour has placed itself. The...

Scottish Parliament: Nursery Nurses (Pay and Conditions) (1 Apr 2004)

Campbell Martin: No thank you. It is time that Labour started listening—you have a wee seat. What we have now is the reality of that Tory policy being back on the agenda. What we have now is the leader of COSLA mouthing those Thatcherite words to put down the democratic rights of the nursery nurses. We have new Labour councillors arguing for local deals instead of national deals. They want to impose local...

Scottish Parliament: Nursery Nurses (Pay and Conditions) (1 Apr 2004)

Campbell Martin: You have a wee seat. As I said, it is time that Labour listened. The Executive will not take responsibility for resolving the dispute and letting our nursery nurses go back to where they want to be—in nurseries throughout Scotland, looking after this country's children of nursery age. Labour members should not come to the debate and say that they support the nursery nurses because, when...

Campbell Martin: The seriousness associated with problems related to antisocial behaviour is exemplified by the fact that virtually every member can relate stories of how such behaviour has affected people in the communities that they represent. It is clear that antisocial behaviour can destroy the quality of life of those affected by it, but it can also destroy the lives of those involved in such acts. As...

Scottish Parliament: Antisocial Behaviour etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (10 Mar 2004)

Campbell Martin: No, thank you—have a wee seat. As a member of the Communities Committee, I signed up to the general principles of the bill. However, I have some concerns about certain aspects of it, to which I hope the Deputy Minister for Communities might refer in her summing up. I do not think that the Executive will achieve what it hopes to achieve with respect to certain aspects of the bill. On the...

Scottish Parliament: Antisocial Behaviour etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (10 Mar 2004)

Campbell Martin: I would prefer ministers to use their time at the end of the debate—back benchers get only four minutes. My other main concern is over what has become probably the most contentious part of the bill: the power to disperse groups. From the evidence given to the Communities Committee, it became very clear that the police do not think that they need such a power and that they think it...
