Scottish Parliament: Child Protection (13 Nov 2003)

Campbell Martin: I do not think that we will hear in the debate any arguments against the principle of child protection, which lies behind the motion and the amendments. I am thankful that most people consider hurting children to be one of the most unacceptable crimes. That is why the political parties are prepared to work together to tackle the problems that lead to children's going unprotected and being...

Scottish Parliament: Child Protection (13 Nov 2003)

Campbell Martin: No, thank you. The member should sit down. The reality of the situation is shown by social workers in North Ayrshire, who broke ranks, spoke out and raised concerns. As they are professionals, they raised concerns not for themselves or their jobs, but for the people for whom they knew that they were failing to deliver services. That is the reality that lies behind the phrase "recruitment and...

Scottish Parliament: Child Protection (13 Nov 2003)

Campbell Martin: No, thank you. Occasionally in North Ayrshire, children in residential care settings sleep on couches and social workers must leave children who are at risk in the family home because they cannot find a place in which to put them. That is the reality that the Executive must address. The other aspect of local government involvement in child protection is the belief of some councils that they...

Scottish Parliament: Child Protection (13 Nov 2003)

Campbell Martin: No, thanks. I want to talk about the important issue of child protection in schools, because it has not been mentioned. When we hand over our children to be educated in schools every day, we trust schools to protect them and ask the education system to do that. Unfortunately, he is not in the chamber at the moment, but I ask the minister who will sum up—I respect the fact that he is the...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Social Services (Resources) (4 Sep 2003)

Campbell Martin: I take it that that was a yes. Could the minister tell me why, if he thinks that they have enough resources, front-line social services workers in North Ayrshire are telling me that they do not and that they are struggling to meet the demands that are placed on them? Could he also tell me why in a letter to me, a copy of which I am happy to let him have, the chief executive of North...

Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap (4 Sep 2003)

Campbell Martin: Before the election in May, I used to watch proceedings in the chamber on a television in an office in parliamentary headquarters. Kay Ullrich thought I was working, but when the cat is away, the telly can be watched. I thought then that the minister was one of the Scottish Executive's more talented members—I say to Margaret Curran that it is early days in my speech and that she should not...

Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap (4 Sep 2003)

Campbell Martin: No, thank you. Tommy Sheridan referred to the phenomenon of people who are working but who are poor as well as people living in poverty because they are unemployed and cannot get work. From day to day, some people do not know how long their jobs will last, as they are on short-term contracts or in low-paid jobs, but they know that they must feed their kids. They have unbearable stress....

Scottish Parliament: Closing the Opportunity Gap (4 Sep 2003)

Campbell Martin: As a member of the Scottish National Party, I make it clear that I am not here to manage devolution—I am here to move the Parliament on to independence. We must raise our horizons and aspirations and take back the powers to deliver a better life for the people of Scotland. The powers of devolution are not enough to tackle the problems that we have in Scotland. The minister knows that...
