James Dornan: My apologies, Presiding Officer.

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2020 [Draft] (10 Mar 2020)

James Dornan: Bob and I are always close, Presiding Officer. That question was asked of almost every witness who was in front of the committee. None of them could give a positive answer as to how they would raise the money for the extra costs that they asked for, and no members of other parties could come up with a fully costed plan either. Furthermore, we are able to maintain the UK’s most competitive...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government’s Approach to Negotiations with the European Union (4 Mar 2020)

James Dornan: The negotiating mandate seeks to place Scotland and the rest of the UK as far from the EU as possible. Has the cabinet secretary been given any explanation from the UK Government about why it is so intent on creating a situation in which there is as little alignment as possible?

Scottish Parliament: Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: I am pleased to speak on behalf of the Local Government and Communities Committee. Today’s debate reflects the findings of the committee’s scrutiny, which we began last September. We published our report on 5 February this year, and commended Monica Lennon’s work and her collaboration with the cabinet secretary. That joint work has helped to highlight the issues of access and...

Scottish Parliament: Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: I am just about to close. I will take an intervention if I have the time.

Scottish Parliament: Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: I am speaking as convener of the Local Government and Communities Committee. Given that we are talking about the Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Bill, I should concentrate on it. That was a red herring. I am proud of the report that the Local Government and Communities Committee has produced. It is honest, well produced and absent of all political bias. It is for that reason that...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (19 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (19 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: What would Alex Cole-Hamilton do now with the hospital? He has to accept that we are where we are, and he has not answered John Mason’s question. We need to get the money from somewhere, now.

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (19 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: I say to Jeremy Balfour that I agree that the health service in Scotland has been devolved for 20 years, which is probably the precise reason why it is the best in the UK. Before I make my next comments, I want to exempt Anas Sarwar and Daniel Johnson from them. Both those Labour members made very good speeches. Nobody can fault Anas Sarwar for his consistent campaigning on behalf of the...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (19 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: Alex Cole-Hamilton is not in the Labour Party. That party seems to have no consideration for the morale of a workforce that daily goes above and beyond to improve the lives of each and every one of us here, and the life of every individual who chooses to make Scotland their home. The service is still free at the point of need, and is the envy of countries across the world. It was shameful,...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (19 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: It is not often that I am asked to do that, Presiding Officer. Thank you very much. [ Laughter .] I see that it has not been met by universal approval. In the last budget, the finance secretary committed an extra £454 million to NHS front-line services to improve waiting times and patient outcomes. That was welcomed by staff and patients across Scotland. We all receive NHS complaints; it is...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (5 Feb 2020)

James Dornan: In my role as convener of the Local Government and Communities Committee, I thank our clerks, the team at the Scottish Parliament information centre, the Government and the many people and organisations that provided us with evidence. I also thank my fellow committee members. I remind members that the committee was working to a pretty strict remit, and what came out was well worth the work...

Scottish Parliament: Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Oversight Board (28 Jan 2020)

James Dornan: I thank the cabinet secretary for her statement. I was pleased to hear the commitment to improving communication with families. Can she assure members that the parents of affected children will be fully involved in the review of their own children’s cases, to ensure that the insight that they can offer is fully utilised?

Scottish Parliament: Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm (Scotland) Act 2016 (23 Jan 2020)

James Dornan: 3. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the implementation of the Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm (Scotland) Act 2016. (S5O-04045)
