Scottish Parliament: Caring for Scotland’s Older People (9 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: As I will go on to say, the principle is sound. There is no reason to do things at a national level; they could quite easily be done at a local level. The partnerships could have worked at a Glasgow level, but that did not happen because of the intransigence of people within the organisations involved. Those on the ground did a magnificent job in ensuring that the number of delayed discharges...

Scottish Parliament: Caring for Scotland’s Older People (9 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: I do not have time. I am sorry. The idea that creating a new nationwide bureaucracy will address the poor integration of health boards does not add up at this stage. I am pleased that the Scottish Government has announced a £70 million change fund in the draft budget to support better integration of older people’s services that are delivered by health boards, councils and the third and...

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward: Health, Wellbeing and Cities Strategy (8 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: As this is my first opportunity to do so, Presiding Officer, I congratulate you on your new position and the ministers on their new positions, in particular Michael Matheson. It is always nice to see a local boy done good, so well done, Michael. I will touch on a couple of things that Drew Smith mentioned in his wish list for Glasgow City Council. We should put some facts into the debate. The...

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward: Health, Wellbeing and Cities Strategy (8 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: I am happy to look at the motion after the debate. The BBC may well have focused on the most damaged and difficult people, and there may be a case for saying that the programme should not have been aired, but one thing it did is highlight again the deplorable and soul-destroying way in which some members of our society, a few but too many—they are strands in our tartan—live their lives....

Scottish Parliament: Local Authorities (Duty of Care and Responsibility) (2 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: 8. To ask the Scottish Government whether it considers that local authorities have a duty of care and responsibility to the most vulnerable in society. (S4O-00008)

Scottish Parliament: Local Authorities (Duty of Care and Responsibility) (2 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: Does the cabinet secretary share my disappointment at Glasgow City Council’s decision to scrap the concessionary rent scheme, which has benefited hundreds of charities across the city? The move leaves many of them facing the possibility of closure. Will she join me in urging the council to put a moratorium on the decision until its own grants integration scheme comes into force next year to...

Scottish Parliament: Sport (2 Jun 2011)

James Dornan: It will come as no surprise that, as the member for Glasgow Cathcart, the home of Scottish football, I am delighted to speak in this debate on the contribution of sport to Scotland. Not only does Glasgow have a fantastic sporting history; we are, as members have said, privileged to have ahead of us a magnificent sporting future with the Commonwealth games coming to my home city in 2014. That...

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward (26 May 2011)

James Dornan: It is with immense pleasure that I take part in the debate as the constituency MSP for Glasgow Cathcart. I pay tribute to my predecessor, Charlie Gordon, as other members have done to their predecessors. Charlie and I had political differences, but I am thankful to him for the mature way in which he conducted his campaign and any dealings that we had in the period when he was in office and I...
