Scottish Parliament: Colleges (Access for Disabled People) (16 Jan 2013)

James Dornan: A number of cases have been reported in Glasgow, including in my constituency, in which local authority departments have claimed that it is not their responsibility to pay for the personal assistants who are required for students with a physical disability to attend courses at college. That has caused huge worry and concern for those prospective students, who wish to continue with their...

Scottish Parliament: Day Centre Reform (Glasgow) (17 Jan 2013)

James Dornan: I thank my colleague Bob Doris for bringing forward this debate on an important issue that unfortunately continues to raise its head in the city of Glasgow. We all recognise that, because of the financial situation, hard decisions need to be made and that we need to modernise care services where appropriate. However, we must also recognise that, as elected representatives, we along with our...

Scottish Parliament: Day Centre Reform (Glasgow) (17 Jan 2013)

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 2) Bill: Stage 1 (22 Jan 2013)

James Dornan: In the process of running down Glasgow, as the member says, does he agree that if councils are under such financial restraint it would be better for them to use the very precious money that they receive on services, rather than on huge payouts to Labour Party cronies?

Scottish Parliament: Make Young People Your Business (29 Jan 2013)

James Dornan: I am delighted to be able to bring to the chamber a debate on the new Skills Development Scotland campaign called make young people your business. There is no doubt that youth unemployment is one of the most pressing challenges that currently face Governments on both sides of the border and throughout Europe. In Spain, youth unemployment has just hit 60 per cent, and in the United Kingdom a...

Scottish Parliament: Consumer Focus (Abolition) (7 Feb 2013)

James Dornan: Does the minister share my disappointment about that grudging response and agree that it will have a detrimental effect on Scottish consumers, who are already suffering from the draconian decisions that the Westminster Government has taken? Does he agree that, if the UK Government is not willing to continue to provide a scheme such as Consumer Focus, it is incumbent on it to ensure that the...

Does the minister agree that the early years are crucial in determining the future life chances of Scotland’s children and young people and that it is the responsibility of all of us in society to do what we can to ensure positive outcomes? Will...

Scottish Parliament: Adult Health and Social Care (Integration) (7 Mar 2013)

James Dornan: I thank you for that reminder, Presiding Officer, just before I got up to speak. Like most others, I welcome the Government’s plans to integrate health and social care. I am confident that the bill will help bring together the best that the NHS and local authorities, along with third-sector and independent bodies, have to offer to make life that bit better and to make treatment much more...

Scottish Parliament: Adult Health and Social Care (Integration) (7 Mar 2013)

James Dornan: Having been a councillor in Glasgow City Council, I have seen a payroll vote at work. I suggest that we have a jointly accountable officer, as per the proposals. Labour’s amendment mentions “a strong role for local authorities”, but the main thrust of Jackie Baillie’s opening speech was that it is important that local authorities have control. I have seen what happens in the biggest...

Scottish Parliament: Food Products Labelling (13 Mar 2013)

James Dornan: 6. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with the European Union regarding the labelling of products since the discovery of horsemeat in other meat products. (S4O-01910)

Scottish Parliament: Food Products Labelling (13 Mar 2013)

James Dornan: I recently visited a local butcher—a Mr Lupton. It is clear that J Lupton’s feel that one of the big advantages of local butchers is that everything that they sell is quite correctly traceable back to the place of origin. Does the cabinet secretary agree that it would be a great comfort to the public and would help local producers if all meat foodstuffs, including pre-packed and frozen...

Scottish Parliament: David Livingstone Bicentenary (27 Mar 2013)

James Dornan: Like everybody else, I thank James Kelly for bringing the motion for debate in the chamber. As a new member of the CPA, I am delighted to have this opportunity to speak on the subject. We have heard a lot about David Livingstone’s enduring legacy, and the worldwide celebrations commemorating the 200th anniversary of the boy of Blantyre’s birth are a clear testament to the impact that he...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Services (16 Apr 2013)

James Dornan: Before I go on to say what I want to say, I will talk about the previous speaker. Graeme Pearson talked about the SNP causing fear and scaremongering, then went on to say that we brought in 1,000 extra police but sacked 1,000 police staff, and he said that all those police officers are now behind desks. I have spoken to a number of fairly senior police officers during the past few months, not...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Services (16 Apr 2013)

James Dornan: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Universal Services (16 Apr 2013)

James Dornan: It would have been a magnificent line of irony, if only that were true. I did not say at any stage in my speech that the other parties want to end all universal benefits. If the member checks the Official Report later, he will find that that is the case.
