James Dornan: At the Local Government and Communities Committee this morning, Graham Sharp, the chair of the Accounts Commission, confirmed to me that, despite the desperate claims of our political opponents, if we include council tax and other revenue-raising measures, the funding available to local authorities has not fallen at all. What action is being taken to ensure that local authorities continue to...

Scottish Parliament: Sectarianism (29 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: The cabinet secretary may be aware that, on Tuesday evening last week, I convened the first meeting of the cross-party group on combating sectarianism in Scottish society. It was great to be joined by fellow MSPs from the Scottish National Party, the Scottish Conservatives and the Greens, as well as by external members from the Church of Scotland, Nil by Mouth, the Scottish Women’s...

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (29 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (29 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: A couple of years ago, I had the dubious pleasure of sleeping rough in Hampden park. I did so for two reasons: to fundraise and to highlight the issue of homelessness and rough sleeping. For me, it was a cold, uncomfortable and difficult evening, but the truth is that I was never under any threat. Unlike many of the people who live on the streets, I did not have to worry about being assaulted...

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (29 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: I think that Jackie Baillie should listen. The Scottish Government is doing what it can in extremely serious circumstances. It is a very good action plan. Everybody should be getting behind it, and we should be making sure that we do not have to have this conversation again in another five or six years’ time, because we are now much closer to closing that gap than we ever have been before....

Scottish Parliament: Violence against Women (27 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Violence against Women (27 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: Does Margaret Mitchell accept that the police have said over the past couple of weeks that there was no evidence of such child prostitution in Govanhill?

Scottish Parliament: Violence against Women (27 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: “Quick girls, pop your coat and shoes on and get tucked up in bed,” insists a young mother. “But mam, it is not cold. Why do I need to wear shoes in bed?” replies a weary child. The mother sighs, prepared to tell another lie to her three young daughters: “Because it is to get cold during the night,” is the meek reply. That conversation sounds like a snippet from a Victorian novel,...

Scottish Parliament: Real Living Wage (8 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: 4. To ask the First Minister how the Scottish Government supports the real living wage. (S5F-02767)

Scottish Parliament: Real Living Wage (8 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: I thank the First Minister for that answer, but does she agree that it is a disgrace that the UK Government failed to use its budget to put in place—finally—a real living wage for every worker and that it continues to subject workers who are under the age of 25 to lower pay for no justifiable reason?

Scottish Parliament: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Inclusive Education (8 Nov 2018)

James Dornan: I welcome today’s announcement and congratulate the TIE campaign—Jordan, Liam and everybody else who is involved—for all that it has achieved. Scotland is widely recognised as one of the most progressive countries in Europe on LGBTI rights. Today’s announcement only reinforces that position. However, what other action has the Scottish Government taken to protect and promote the rights...

Scottish Parliament: Ending Austerity, Poverty and Inequality (24 Oct 2018)

James Dornan: If Alex Rowley had written the motion and made the opening speech, I think that my speech would have been very different, because he took a much more sensible tone and put the blame where it lies, and he talked about being able to work together to try to solve the problems. Unfortunately, what we get from the Labour motion and what we got from Elaine Smith’s speech was the usual—touching...

Scottish Parliament: Ending Austerity, Poverty and Inequality (24 Oct 2018)

James Dornan: No, I cannot. I always like to take interventions from Neil Findlay, but I have only four minutes, so I cannot. I am sorry. Why should we be surprised? The Labour Party has done nothing. We are the only party that has done anything to mitigate the effects of Westminster decisions. Labour is the party that campaigned to ensure that Westminster stayed in charge of us, despite the fact that it...

Scottish Parliament: Carers Allowance Supplement (4 Oct 2018)

James Dornan: Will the First Minister update Parliament on the payments of Scotland’s new carers allowance supplement? How many payments have now been made, and how will that financial support help carers and their families?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish League Cup Semi-finals (2 Oct 2018)

James Dornan: Given that the SPFL did not even think to contact ScotRail or have discussions with any bus operators, and that the Scottish Police Federation is strongly opposed to the two games going ahead on the same day, does the minister agree that such disregard of football fans, public services and my constituents further highlights the need to improve the governance of Scottish football? Will the...

Scottish Parliament: Veterans and the Armed Forces Community (Support) (27 Sep 2018)

James Dornan: Mike Rumbles says everything is the SNP’s fault.
