Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Dentistry (Greenock and Inverclyde) (21 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to improve access to NHS dentistry in the Greenock and Inverclyde constituency. (S6O-03098)

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Dentistry (Greenock and Inverclyde) (21 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: I welcome the additional investment that the Scottish Government has put in. The minister will be aware that I have been raising issues regarding NHS dentistry in Inverclyde since 2021. Cases include two constituents who recently contacted me to say that they had been unable to access an NHS dentist despite the fact that they are registered as NHS patients. They have struggled to get...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Capital Projects) (20 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: In addition to the letter that he mentioned, will the cabinet secretary provide an update on the Scottish Government’s latest engagement with the UK Government on the capital budget, bearing in mind, as the cabinet secretary touched on, that the UK Government’s disastrous autumn statement slashed the Scottish Government’s capital budget and the UK Government’s reckless spending...

Scottish Parliament: EE Greenock Call Centre ( 8 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: At 11 am this morning, EE announced that it will be closing its Greenock call centre site on 30 November. That will affect more than 450 people in my constituency, who will now be forced either to work in Glasgow or to find another job. Can the First Minister give a guarantee that the Scottish Government agencies will be on hand to assist those who require it? Will he provide an assurance...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 3) Bill: Stage 1 ( 8 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: I n her opening comments, the Deputy First Minister quoted Rebecca Evans, the Minister for Finance and Local Government for Wales. It is worth quoting Ms Evans again, because colleagues in the Labour Party seem to have one vision this afternoon, which is that everything in Scotland is bad but everything in Wales is wonderful. When Ms Evans was delivering the draft budget on 19 December, she...

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2024-25 (Inverclyde Council) ( 7 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what dialogue it has had with Inverclyde Council regarding the Scottish budget for 2024-25. (S6O-03063)

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2024-25 (Inverclyde Council) ( 7 Feb 2024)

Stuart McMillan: The minister will be aware of the social and economic challenges that those in my constituency face. I will always advocate for more money to go to Inverclyde Council, as I recognise the consequence of the COSLA-agreed funding formula, which only exacerbates our issues with population decline and deprivation, as it is heavily weighted towards an area’s population level. Can the minister...

Scottish Parliament: UK Covid-19 Inquiry (31 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: I have listened to the full debate so far, and there have been some excellent contributions, including from Alex Rowley and Bob Doris. The line in the Tory motion that calls for “the Parliament’s COVID-19 Recovery Committee to be reconstituted for the purpose of providing parliamentary scrutiny of evidence revealed by the Inquiry” says more about partisan politics than about the...

Scottish Parliament: Empire, Slavery and Scotland’s Museums Steering Group (Recommendations) (25 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: Will the First Minister provide an assurance that, although budgetary pressures mean that the Scottish Government is not currently able to commit to the empire, slavery and Scotland’s museums steering group’s suggestion that it receive £5 million for its work—which includes bringing forward plans for a dedicated space to address Scotland’s role in empire, colonialism and historical...

Scottish Parliament: Out-of-hours General Practice Services (Inverclyde) (18 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: It is frustrating that the general practitioner out-of-hours service in Inverclyde is to be limited to Saturdays and public holidays. However, having attended one of the health board’s public consultations on the service changes, I am aware that just over a third of people from Inverclyde who need to see a GP out of hours are given a face-to-face appointment, with the remainder being given...

Scottish Parliament: W W & J McClure Limited (18 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: The First Minister will be aware of the collapse of W W & J McClure Limited, which happened in 2021 and has affected an estimated 100,000 people across the United Kingdom. The firm was based in Greenock and it had many local clients. The Trusts and Succession (Scotland) Bill, which was passed in December, and the Regulation of Legal Services (Scotland) Bill will, I hope, make similar...

Scottish Parliament: Greenock and Inverclyde Trunk Road Network (Investment) (18 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: 3. To ask the Scottish Government how much has been invested in the trunk road network in the Greenock and Inverclyde constituency since Amey took over management of the network. (S6O-02976)

Scottish Parliament: Greenock and Inverclyde Trunk Road Network (Investment) (18 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: Since Amey took over the contract from Scotland TranServ in 2020, it has been clear to see that additional work has been taking place on the A8 and the A78 in my constituency. Amey took over during the pandemic and inherited significant challenges, and I thank Amey for the work that it has done. Can the minister assure my constituents that Amey will continue to invest in the trunk road...

Scottish Parliament: Horizon Information Technology Prosecutions (16 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: Yesterday, I was contacted by a lawyer of a constituent who was prosecuted for stealing £30,000 from the Post Office. He is not a sub-postmaster but his mother was, and they were both prosecuted for theft. My constituent even repaid the £30,000 so that his mother did not have to go to jail. I do not imagine that that is a unique case, but will any quashing of convictions in any legislation...

Scottish Parliament: Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: I wanted to speak in the debate because, although I agree with the general principles of the Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill, some of its aspects need to be amended. I will come on to those points in a bit more detail later. I put on record my support for the bill, which will certainly enable councils to invest in their areas. However, that will happen only if the councils choose to introduce...

Scottish Parliament: Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: I am about to come on to that. I have been engaging with the community wealth minister on the matter. I first met him last summer, before inviting him along to the cross-party group meeting last September to speak with its members. That was a very helpful discussion, but it was clear that further dialogue was required, so, in November, I hosted a round table with the minister and relevant...

Scottish Parliament: Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: Is Craig Hoy saying that we should take money away from the national health service to go towards what he suggests?

Scottish Parliament: Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: Will the member take an intervention on that point?

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living Crisis (11 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: 5. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what steps it is taking to address the cost of living crisis. (S6O-02954)

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living Crisis (11 Jan 2024)

Stuart McMillan: Earlier this week, I visited Advice Direct Scotland, which is funded by the Scottish Government. According to its stats, more people from my constituency than from any other constituency in the country have contacted it for energy advice. I believe that its outreach work across the country, including in my constituency, has led to some of the increase. It will also be attending a session at 7...
