Scottish Parliament: Homicide Law (1 Jun 2021)

James Dornan: I have long campaigned for the elimination of violence against women and girls, and the cabinet secretary will be aware of the campaigns led by my incredibly brave, determined and focused constituent, Fiona Drouet. It is vital that we do, and are seen to do, all we can to ensure that justice is done for all victims of domestic abuse. Will the Scottish Government commit to undertaking research...

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland and Rangers Football Club (Engagement) (18 May 2021)

James Dornan: To ask the Scottish Government what engagement it has had with Police Scotland and Rangers Football Club regarding the reported Covid-19 regulations breaches and incidents of vandalism, violence and anti-Catholic bigotry in Glasgow city centre and at Ibrox Stadium on 15 May.

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland and Rangers Football Club (Engagement) (18 May 2021)

James Dornan: Saturday’s scenes were an utter disgrace. Like many people, I am sick and tired of Rangers fans thinking that they are above the law. Vandalism, violence among themselves and towards the police, anti-Catholic bigotry and anti-Irish racism show us that we have a major problem in Scotland, which we must tackle. The blame for the abhorrent scenes lies squarely with the Rangers fans who were in...

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland and Rangers Football Club (Engagement) (18 May 2021)

James Dornan: I welcome Police Scotland’s having established a dedicated inquiry team to investigate the carnage at George Square, but we also need to take steps to prevent such abhorrent scenes from happening in the first place. As the cabinet secretary is well aware, I have for years been pushing for strict liability, whereby clubs would be held responsible for the actions of their fans. Although I...

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Enforcement (14 May 2021)

James Dornan: I place on record my admiration for the community resilience of the people in Pollokshields yesterday. Kenmure Street is not far from my constituency, and I know that some of those people were there to show Scottish solidarity. The Home Office’s deliberate, provocative act while the First Minister and the rest of the MSPs were being sworn in further exemplifies how cowardly, barbaric and...

James Dornan: made a solemn affirmation.

Scottish Parliament: Education (Attainment Gap) (24 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: Will the cabinet secretary confirm that the announcement of an additional £25 million to tackle poverty and inequality will not only further enhance the £100 Covid hardship payment for children and young people who receive free school meals, but enable support to be extended to children who receive free lunches in early learning and childcare settings?

Scottish Parliament: European Charter of Local Self-Government (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (23 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: I wish—[Inaudible]—for the future, and hope that the three pigs story was not about something that he saw somewhere up in the north of Scotland. Before I start—

Scottish Parliament: European Charter of Local Self-Government (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (23 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: I cannot believe that you would want to miss them, Presiding Officer. Can you hear me all right?

Scottish Parliament: European Charter of Local Self-Government (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (23 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: I wished Tom Mason all the best, and I do the same for the cabinet secretary. Aileen Campbell and I go back to the good old days of the SNP Glasgow regional association; recent events have been nothing in comparison with what we had to put up with in those days, and that was only among a few of us. She has been a great friend and colleague for a long time, and she has been an absolute...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Bill (17 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: I am delighted to take part in today’s incredibly important stage 3 debate—all the more so because improving support for survivors of domestic abuse is a subject that I care very much about. Since I was elected, it has been an honour to work with and to learn from two brilliant community organisations: Waves (Women Against Violent Environments) and the Daisy Project in Castlemilk, which...

Scottish Parliament: Flapper Skate Protection (10 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: 1. I am delighted that I came in at that point, Presiding Officer. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what action it is taking regarding the consideration of protection for flapper skate. (S5O-05090)

Scottish Parliament: Flapper Skate Protection (10 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: Yes, I hope so. Can the minister explain why it is important that we take that action urgently? What is the scientific basis for the designation?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change Plan (9 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: I welcome the opportunity to talk on behalf of the Local Government and Communities Committee about the climate change plan update. Initially, we agreed to focus on the buildings chapter in the updated plan, which centres around planning and building. Our scrutiny also looked at how local government plays a role in helping to achieve the net zero target. I would like to take this opportunity...

Scottish Parliament: Sectoral Funds (Ring Fencing) (3 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: This subject comes up fairly regularly at my Local Government and Communities Committee. Will the minister outline what changes the SNP Government has made to previous ring-fenced funding streams to provide local authorities with greater flexibility in deciding how best to allocate their total resources to services?

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Households (3 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: 1. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on how its social security measures will support low-income households. (S5O-05073)

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Households (3 Mar 2021)

James Dornan: I noticed that the Northern Ireland Executive decided to provide a winter payment to recipients of disability benefits and pension credit. Would the Scottish Government consider a similar scheme?

Scottish Parliament: Young Person’s Guarantee (24 Feb 2021)

James Dornan: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what progress has been made towards implementing the young person’s guarantee. (S5O-05043)

Scottish Parliament: Young Person’s Guarantee (24 Feb 2021)

James Dornan: Surely the parties in Parliament will not be mad enough not to pass a budget that would give an extra £70 million to help every 16 to 24-year old in my constituency and constituencies across Scotland. The guarantee should surely help us to recover from the loss of opportunity that has been brought about by the pandemic. How does the cabinet secretary see the guarantee helping to prevent...
