Scottish Parliament: Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (Meetings) (3 Feb 2011)

A document that they have been given says that the SCVO’s “vital work is being undermined by Scottish Government policies designed to protect the public sector.” Will the First Minister clarify how we will...

Scottish Parliament: Forced Marriage etc (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (2 Feb 2011)

However, wearing two hats, as I am also a member of the Justice Committee, I support my convener’s comments about the recommendations in the committee’s report, and look forward to engaging in some of the issues that have been raised. Over the years since the creation of the Scottish Parliament, there have been many...

Scottish Parliament: Forced Marriage etc (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (2 Feb 2011)

I recognise fully that forced marriage in any form, whether it involves physical, psychological or other duress—or indeed cultural duress—is not an acceptable way for anyone to proceed. Where both parties enter into an open agreement and arrangement of their own and their families’ will, that is an entirely different situation, and we need to ensure...

Scottish Parliament: Forced Marriage etc (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (2 Feb 2011)

Hugh O'Donnell: It seems almost no time since I stood up for my opening speech. Unfortunately, this is a very limited debate.

Several members have made the valid point—perhaps I did not make it as clearly as they did—that the...

Scottish Parliament: Dementia Strategy (27 Jan 2011)

Hugh O'Donnell: Not unexpectedly, this has been a very consensual debate. The dementia strategy that was prepared and published in June last year was warmly welcomed and continues to be warmly welcomed by people across the community.

Scottish Parliament: Young People (Opportunities) (20 Jan 2011)

Members have spoken fulsomely about the quality of life that the bank has brought to people in Bangladesh, the United States and other places where it is located....

Scottish Parliament: Young People (Opportunities) (20 Jan 2011)

Hugh O'Donnell: I would not dare to disagree with that or with much else that Margaret Smith says. When the Scottish Government considers the issues that I and others have talked about, I draw its attention to deeper involvement by Scotland in the European voluntary service, which the European Union provides and supports with funds. That brings an international element to volunteering.
