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

James Dornan: I thought that you were rethinking, Neil.

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

James Dornan: No, I was not going to mention that issue in this speech, because I am working with others in Glasgow to do what we can to alleviate the situation. Clearly, there is a lot to be done, some of which relates to reserved powers. Members will know that the Westminster Government will not give us the power to establish safe drug consumption facilities, but the Scottish Government is already doing...

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill (20 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: I am surprised that you said that just as I was getting up to speak, Presiding Officer. I thank Alex Cole-Hamilton for his weak joke at the end of his speech. As the convener of the Local Government and Communities Committee, I am truly delighted that we have reached stage 3 of the Planning (Scotland) Bill. After the successful passing of the Fuel Poverty (Targets, Definition and Strategy)...

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (Day 2) (19 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Point of Order (19 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Can you give me some guidance on how a member would correct inaccuracies that they made in their contributions? Earlier today, Monica Lennon made it clear that she believed that the minister spoke only to people he wanted to speak to or who agreed with his position. I became convener of the Local Government and Communities Committee at the start of...

Scottish Parliament: Football (Sectarianism) (18 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: As the cabinet secretary is aware, I have been leading a campaign for Scottish football clubs and authorities to introduce strict liability to crack down on trouble from fans. Although I am looking at introducing legislation to achieve that, it has always been my preference for Scottish football to implement the measure itself. I welcome the cabinet secretary’s comments about his discussion...

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Targets, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Bill (11 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: Does Alex Rowley accept that he signed up to the target in the Local Government and Communities Committee’s stage 1 report on the bill?

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Targets, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Bill (11 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: I am delighted to be given the opportunity to speak in this important debate, which further enhances Scotland’s reputation as a world leader when it comes to addressing fuel poverty. Regardless of their income or employment status, everyone should be able to heat their homes and keep themselves and their families warm. It is absolutely unacceptable that people are still having to choose...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Qualifications Authority (Meetings) (6 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: 1. To ask the Scottish Government when it last met the SQA and what was discussed. (S5O-03348)

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Qualifications Authority (Meetings) (6 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: I thank the—still—minister for that response. Given the Sultan of Brunei’s deplorable views towards his gay subjects—including, unbelievably, his attempted introduction of death by stoning, until international pressure forced him to make a U-turn—does the minister agree that the SQA should reconsider its links with Brunei and reaffirm its role as an equalities champion for Stonewall?

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Target, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (6 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: I want to speak against Alex Rowley’s amendment. As Andy Wightman said, the committee said at stage 1 that 2040 was a pragmatic target. Ideally, we would all want this to be sorted in the next couple of years. However, 2032 was seen as a totally unrealistic target by those who would have to do the work to ensure that it became a reality. The 2040 target is pragmatic and, as Andy Wightman...

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Target, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (6 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: Mr Wightman mentioned stage 2 and I think that the response that the minister gave him at that stage explained clearly why it could not be done. As Mr Wightman said himself, “Mr Stewart correctly drew attention to sections 2, 3, 4 and 5, which cannot come into force the day after royal assent.”—[ Official Report , Local Government and Communities Committee , 3 April 2019; c 37.] Also,...

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Target, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (6 Jun 2019)

James Dornan: It is important that we work on the basis of what there was agreement on in the committee. I do not really understand the push for the provision. It is not common for all the parts of the bill to be commenced the day after royal assent. I just do not understand why it is necessary here. To be fair, I am the anti-geek, so we are fighting from opposite corners.

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland (Meetings) (30 May 2019)

James Dornan: 4. To ask the Scottish Government when it last met Police Scotland. (S5O-03317)

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland (Meetings) (30 May 2019)

James Dornan: Does the cabinet secretary agree that Police Scotland should thoroughly investigate all accusations of sexual abuse, including incidents in football clubs, and that those who are found guilty should be held to account to the full force of the law?

Scottish Parliament: Children (Equal Protection from Assault) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (28 May 2019)

James Dornan: As others have done, I pay tribute to John Finnie for his tireless work and for his commitment to bringing the bill into being. His bill might not have unanimous backing among members of the Scottish Parliament or the public, but it is a vital step towards creating a fairer and more equal society for everyone in Scotland, at the very heart of which should be children and young people. A few...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Awareness Week (16 May 2019)

James Dornan: 5. To ask the First Minister how the Scottish Government is marking mental health awareness week. (S5F-03339)

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Awareness Week (16 May 2019)

James Dornan: Last week, we heard the sad news that Dr Dame Denise Coia has had to step down from the child and adolescent mental health services task force due to ill health. Does the First Minister agree that Denise Coia should be thanked for taking forward this important work, and can she outline how the task force’s work will be taken forward to implementation?

Scottish Parliament: The Place Principle (14 May 2019)

James Dornan: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate, which, judging by the contributions so far, will be fairly positive. As every member will agree, Scotland’s communities are a rich source of energy, creativity and talent. Each of our communities is made up of people from diverse backgrounds, with different skills and experiences, and all of them have something to contribute to improving Scotland...

Scottish Parliament: The Place Principle (14 May 2019)

James Dornan: Oh!
