Scottish Parliament: Procurator Fiscal Service (Guidance) (10 May 2012)

James Dornan: 9. To ask the Scottish Government what guidance is used by a procurator fiscal in determining whether a case is tried on a summary or indictment basis. (S4O-00987)

Scottish Parliament: Procurator Fiscal Service (Guidance) (10 May 2012)

James Dornan: In the recent case of Damon Brooke, who attempted to abduct a young girl last year, the sheriff commented that the fact that the case was dealt with as a summary prosecution meant that his hands were tied when it came to sentencing. Given that the nature of a crime is a highly significant factor in the procurator fiscal’s decision making, does the Solicitor General agree that there needs to...

Scottish Parliament: Alcohol Abuse (Armed Forces) (17 May 2012)

James Dornan: I thank my colleague Paul Wheelhouse for lodging this important motion for debate. We owe a huge debt to the service personnel who put themselves at great risk to keep us safe. The risk of death in the Army is 150 times higher than the risk for the general working population, and the loss of life in the armed forces is a debt that we will never be able to fully repay. Although a lot of good...

Scottish Parliament: Secretary of State for Scotland (Meetings) (24 May 2012)

James Dornan: The First Minister will be aware of the recent announcement that 90 job losses are planned at the ClydeUnion Pumps plant in my constituency. What discussions has the Scottish Government had with ClydeUnion Pumps about the job losses? Former owner Jim McColl, when he sold the company, said that he thought that new owners SPX “would be a good responsible owner of this business and would...

Scottish Parliament: Unemployment (Glasgow) (7 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Glasgow City Council about unemployment. (S4O-01103)

Scottish Parliament: Unemployment (Glasgow) (7 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: I am delighted to hear that there are positive discussions between the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council. Does the cabinet secretary agree that the council should seriously consider making strategic use of its pension fund to boost employment opportunities in the city?

Scottish Parliament: Renewable Energy Investment Fund (14 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: Will the cabinet secretary say what part local authorities can play in encouraging communities to make a contribution to the climate change effort? Does he share my regret that Glasgow City Council’s obstruction over the Castlemilk and Carmunnock Community Wind Park Trust has meant that people in my constituency have lost out on years of potential benefit from the project?

Scottish Parliament: Public Bodies Climate Change Duty (14 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: How are local authorities performing in contributing to meeting climate change targets? In particular, how is Glasgow City Council performing? Following an Audit Scotland report in 2010-11, that council was shown to have the worst record of all 32 local authorities.

Scottish Parliament: Knife Crime (Education Campaign) (14 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what progress has been made by the no knives better lives campaign. (S4O-01142)

Scottish Parliament: Knife Crime (Education Campaign) (14 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: It is recognised that the Scottish Government takes knife crime extremely seriously, and is making great strides to combat it through initiatives such as no knives better lives, as has been seen in recent events in Castlemilk in my constituency. However, as has been highlighted by a number of recent attacks in Glasgow, there is clearly still work to be done. Will the cabinet secretary inform...

Scottish Parliament: Carers (Support) (21 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: 4. To ask the First Minister what support the Scottish Government gives to carers. (S4F-00776)

Scottish Parliament: Carers (Support) (21 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: I know that the Deputy First Minister recognises the great work that is being done in both my constituency and hers by organisations such as the Glasgow south east carers’ centre. When working with carers and carers groups, I became aware that many of the voluntary organisations that support carers and those who require care in Glasgow face extra difficulty, due to the unique tendering...

Scottish Parliament: South Sudan (Scottish Organisations) (28 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: 5. I hope that you think this is worth waiting for, Presiding Officer. To ask the Scottish Government what recent discussions it has had with Scottish organisations carrying out development work in South Sudan. (S4O-01193)

Scottish Parliament: South Sudan (Scottish Organisations) (28 Jun 2012)

James Dornan: I have recently visited South Sudan and Uganda with Glasgow the Caring City, and I saw first-hand some of the inspirational work that it and other Scottish charities are doing to make life better for the children of South Sudan, many of whom have been orphaned because of the atrocities committed by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army. Will the cabinet secretary join me in condemning...

Scottish Parliament: Cancer (Early Detection) (26 Sep 2012)

James Dornan: 10. To ask the Scottish Government what recent progress the detect cancer early initiative has made. (S4O-01315)

Scottish Parliament: Cancer (Early Detection) (26 Sep 2012)

James Dornan: As the cabinet secretary said, the on-going advertising campaign fronted by Elaine C Smith gives women information and advice on how to check for early symptoms of breast cancer. Given that the expected upsurge in the number of women recognising and acting on early signs and symptoms will inevitably lead to more consultations at general practitioner surgeries, are there any plans to offer a...

Scottish Parliament: Nuisance Calls (2 Oct 2012)

James Dornan: I thank Liam McArthur for bringing the debate to the chamber and the Sunday Post for the campaign that it has been running. It is good that a problem that affects people in every constituency across the country, including my own, is being recognised. Nuisance calls can be broken down into three broad types. First, there are the persistent and annoying calls from people who are trying to sell...

Scottish Parliament: West Coast Main Line (4 Oct 2012)

James Dornan: I share the minister’s anger at this shambles and waste of public money. Is the minister concerned that the UK Government’s incompetence in its handling of the tender could discourage much-needed investment in infrastructure? How will the Scottish Government ensure that that does not affect Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (24 Oct 2012)

James Dornan: Before I go on to say what I want to say, I will touch on the Labour amendment. I cannot speak for every local authority, but I can speak for the one that I used to help to represent, and Glasgow City Council cut the road maintenance budget for—I think—five years in a row until we had the bad winter. It is now reaping the consequences of its inaction during that time. It is a bit rich for...

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (24 Oct 2012)

James Dornan: Local authorities have a bigger percentage of Government money than they have ever had. Labour members might not want to acknowledge that, but it is a fact. Let me get on to business. I think that it was Brian Adam who talked about Italian weather forecasters getting the jail.
