Results 1–20 of 1714 for speaker:Stuart McMillan

Scottish Parliament: MV Glen Sannox and Vessel 802 (Cost) (7 Oct 2021)

Stuart McMillan: Does the cabinet secretary agree that the only way for shipbuilding at Port Glasgow and Greenock and Inverclyde to continue in future was for the yard to be taken into public ownership? The Tories’ record of hammering shipbuilding communities is there for all to see. Nobody should listen to the Tories when it comes to saving shipbuilding jobs.

Scottish Parliament: Heat in Buildings Strategy (7 Oct 2021)

Stuart McMillan: I welcome the statement and the £1.8 billion of investment, but can the minister provide an assurance that communities with high Scottish index of multiple deprivation rankings and growing older populations will be at the forefront of any roll-out of the investment?

Scottish Parliament: Underemployment (6 Oct 2021)

Stuart McMillan: The United Kingdom Government’s decision to end the furlough scheme will have a substantial impact on many low-paid workers, and it is forcing many households into financial insecurity. Does the minister agree with me that that decision should be reversed urgently?

Scottish Parliament: Inverclyde (Development and Inward Investment) (6 Oct 2021)

Stuart McMillan: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what work it has undertaken with Inverclyde Council to encourage business development and inward investment into Inverclyde. (S6O-00246)

Scottish Parliament: Inverclyde (Development and Inward Investment) (6 Oct 2021)

Stuart McMillan: The minister will be aware of the high levels of deprivation in parts of Inverclyde and of the historical and on-going population decline. I am aware that local authorities can submit a specific business case to the Scottish Government for additional funding outwith the local government settlement. Can the minister confirm whether such a proposal has been forthcoming from Inverclyde Council?...

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

Stuart McMillan: Given that many people are still working from home and many companies are saying that staff will not return to the office, what work is under way to help small businesses and public transport providers that rely on people coming into our town and city centres daily to go to their places of work?

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

Stuart McMillan: Social care staff do not always have access to parking permits and have fallen foul of local restrictions. As we head into winter, parking two or three streets away from a patient’s house will not be advantageous. What discussions have taken place between the Scottish Government and COSLA to find a solution that will assist social care workers in going about their vital work without...

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Out-of-hours Service (Inverclyde) (29 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: 6. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on any plans to reintroduce a full general practitioner out-of-hours service in Inverclyde. (S6O-00206)

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Out-of-hours Service (Inverclyde) (29 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: Although I welcome the reintroduction of the Saturday GP out-of-hours service at the Inverclyde royal hospital, until that service is extended to other days of the week, many of my constituents will continue to be sent to the Royal Alexandra hospital in Paisley and the Vale of Leven district general hospital for that service. I have heard of constituents being sent to the Vale of Leven...

Scottish Parliament: Legal Right to Recovery (29 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: I remind members that I am a board member of Moving On Inverclyde, which is a local addiction service. Not one MSP wants the drugs crisis to continue. The Tories have been talking about a proposal for a legal right to recovery, and the cabinet secretary has—quite rightly—indicated today, and on multiple occasions beforehand, that the Scottish Government will look at any proposals that...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (28 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: What assurances will be provided to Scottish football fans who live outside Scotland and have received both doses of the vaccine that they will have access to Hampden for the upcoming international qualifying matches?

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (15 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what recent discussions it has had with Ferguson Marine regarding the building of vessels for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd. (S6O-00143)

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (15 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: As the cabinet secretary will know, I am not just the local MSP; I grew up in the town and my father worked for the yard before he passed away. I am a huge supporter of the workforce and the yard, and its future is bigger than one person. After yesterday’s news about the two Islay vessels, which was uncomfortable but not unexpected, will the cabinet secretary instigate a change of...

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Services (15 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: The Conservative motion is very short and simple. It says: “That the Parliament recognises that patients have a right to treatment by GPs, and calls on the Scottish Government to set a target date for a return to normal activity in practices, including face-to-face consultations.” That chimes with what Douglas Ross said in the chamber on 1 September: “People cannot see their general...

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Services (15 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: I certainly disagree with Mr Carson—I am sure that he will not be surprised by that. In his comments earlier today and yesterday, Dr Gulhane indicated that he had been seeing patients in his practice on Monday. I welcome the fact that Dr Gulhane is doing that, but GPs have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic. They have been seeing patients face to face, and to suggest otherwise...

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Services (15 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: It is clear that face-to-face appointments will be better for many patients, but the NHS Near Me video consultations will be better for others. It was not that long ago that we were all clapping for the NHS. Sadly, the Tories have moved on to badmouthing our NHS and our GPs.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (14 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: Can the First Minister provide an update on the work that is being conducted to establish an independent public inquiry into the handling of the coronavirus pandemic in Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2021-22 (7 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: I am sure that John Mason will agree that setting up a national care service is hugely ambitious, which Mr Sarwar refused to acknowledge in his comments.

Scottish Parliament: Retail Stock and Staff (Shortages) (2 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: 4. To ask the First Minister what discussions the Scottish Government has had with the United Kingdom Government regarding reports of retail stock and staff shortages in the run-up to Christmas. (S6F-00200)

Scottish Parliament: Retail Stock and Staff (Shortages) (2 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: The British Retail Consortium is the latest organisation to warn of further price increases and disruption in the coming months, due to the Tory-led Brexit. Does the First Minister agree that Brexit has been nothing short of a disaster, that Scotland is increasingly vulnerable under Westminster control and that the only way to keep Scotland safe from the long-term economic and social...
