Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (27 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Gender-based Violence (27 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: I thank Rona Mackay for bringing the debate to the chamber. Such debates are always extremely important. I was delighted to meet Emma Forbes last night at the “GlassWalls” exhibition. I had not realised that the Daisy Project had contributed most, if not all, of the small windows. It was great to see my favourite constituency organisation participating in such a great event. There are a...

Scottish Parliament: Health and Social Care (Investment) (20 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: Last year, the NHS celebrated its 70th birthday. Over the decades, every one of us will have used it in one way or another, whether through being born in the NHS, seeing a GP, having an operation in a hospital or simply visiting an optician for a free NHS eye examination. Despite what we have heard from the likes of Monica Lennon and Miles Briggs, our healthcare system is undoubtedly the best...

Scottish Parliament: Health and Social Care (Investment) (20 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: Sorry, sorry—my apologies. Sit down, Alex—I do not want to give you a heart attack. Free personal care for the elderly has been extended by the SNP to anyone who needs it, regardless of their age, condition, capital or income. Opposition parties need to be honest with the public and remind them of the fact—[ Interruption .] We can all make mistakes—such as mine just then—but the...

Scottish Parliament: Sheku Bayoh (12 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: Following the confirmation that there will be no criminal proceedings in the case, it is right that the Government hold a public inquiry to get to the facts surrounding Mr Bayoh’s tragic death. To follow on from Mr Sarwar’s comments, does the cabinet secretary agree that the onus is now on all of us—those in the chamber and those online—to approach the matter with the sensitivity and...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: Why does Jamie Greene think that we should have faith in any system that the UK Government comes up with? Only today, Hubert Howard, a Windrush immigrant who entered this country when he was three years old, died—just three weeks after getting his citizenship. Why should we trust the system that the Conservatives put in place when that system was obviously such a dreadful failure?

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (5 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: I am delighted to speak in the debate, particularly as I have the great honour of having Hampden park situated in my Glasgow Cathcart constituency. I was delighted to hear the minister talk earlier about the fact that local residents have been, and will continue to be, informed and updated, although I take on board some of the complaints that were referred to by Rachael Hamilton and Miles...

Scottish Parliament: UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (5 Nov 2019)

James Dornan: My colleague has made a very good point, and I apologise profusely because some of the female players play for Glasgow City and often train in my constituency. I thank Annabelle Ewing for allowing me to put on record the magnificent record of the Scottish women football players. Only today, Glasgow was named European capital of sport for 2023, which is the first time that any city has won the...

Scottish Parliament: Affordable Homes (30 Oct 2019)

James Dornan: Does the minister agree with the national director of the Chartered Institute of Housing in Scotland, who said in written evidence to the Local Government and Communities Committee that “The end of right to buy and the financial security provided by a Scottish Government target to deliver 50,000 affordable homes backed by £3 billion funding has created the opportunity for many local...

Scottish Parliament: Miscarriage (Support) (10 Oct 2019)

James Dornan: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what support is available for women who have been affected by miscarriage. (S5O-03659)

Scottish Parliament: Miscarriage (Support) (10 Oct 2019)

James Dornan: Many of those who have contacted me on this matter are concerned about having to walk through existing maternity departments where new mothers are either going through successful pregnancies or have just given birth. That can often cause great upset for parents who are still in mourning for their lost child. Can the minister therefore provide an update on the progress of the national...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (10 Oct 2019)

James Dornan: I thank the Local Government and Communities Committee clerks and the staff from the Scottish Parliament information centre for all their support. I also thank the minister and the Scottish Government for their generally supportive response to our stage 1 report. Most of all, I thank the committee members—those who are presently on the committee and previous members—who worked hard to...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (10 Oct 2019)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Barnett Consequential Funding (Education) (25 Sep 2019)

James Dornan: Just 22 days ago, Liz Smith stated in a question to the First Minister that the consequentials that are coming to the Scottish Government amount to £1.9 billion. Today, her question states that the amount is £700 million lower than that. Does that not highlight, again, why we should always wait to see the colour of the Tories’ money before we start spending it?

Scottish Parliament: Family Migration (17 Sep 2019)

James Dornan: I accept Alex Rowley’s point that some individuals in Scotland might hold views that are not much different to views that are held in other parts of the UK, but does he accept that Government and the main political parties in Scotland have shown a completely different view of immigration from that which those in England have shown?

Scottish Parliament: Superfast Broadband (5 Sep 2019)

James Dornan: 3. To ask the Scottish Government how much financial support the UK Government is providing for Scotland’s reaching 100 per cent superfast broadband programme. (S5O-03483)

Scottish Parliament: Superfast Broadband (5 Sep 2019)

James Dornan: I thank the minister for that disappointing response. It is a strange way to treat one of the so-called family of nations that we were told we are some time ago. How does that level of funding compare with investment by the Westminster Government in broadband and fibre in other parts of the UK?

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2019-20 (4 Sep 2019)

James Dornan: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate. At a time when Westminster is consumed by Brexit and the Tories are playing out a political version of Jonestown, it is great to see the Scottish Government’s new and exciting programme for government published. The policy announcements, of which there are many, will make Scotland a fairer, more prosperous and greener country for all. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2019-20 (4 Sep 2019)

James Dornan: Of course I will. [ Interruption .]
