Scottish Parliament: “Establishing a Stronger Summer Safety Net: Promoting how we can raise retention in post 16 education” (16 Mar 2016)

Hanzala Malik: Although summer support is an ambition for students, recent figures released by the Scottish funding council have revealed a £2.4 million shortfall in the term-time bursary funds available for college students. What is the cabinet secretary doing to address that shortfall in support of our further education students?

Scottish Parliament: Aye Write! Festival (9 Mar 2016)

Hanzala Malik: 7. To ask the Scottish Government whether the Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Europe and External Affairs will be attending any events in the Aye Write! festival in Glasgow. (S4O-05632)

Scottish Parliament: Aye Write! Festival (9 Mar 2016)

Hanzala Malik: Glasgow City Council is very proud to hold the Aye Write! book festival as it has done for the past 11 years. It has been observed that the festival has a low level of participation by people from ethnic minority communities—as participants and contributors. I know of several Glaswegians from diverse backgrounds who have published books in the past few years. I want to mention some of the...

Scottish Parliament: Social Security (1 Mar 2016)

Hanzala Malik: It is an honour to speak on social security in Scotland. The new powers that the Scottish Parliament now has present a huge opportunity for us to build a fairer Scotland. A new list of historic decisions will be made for the people of Scotland. However, the complexity of benefits and of the whole area will be challenging. We need to ensure that any changes that we make are fair, suitable and...

Scottish Parliament: Caring in Craigmillar (1 Mar 2016)

Hanzala Malik: Good evening, Presiding Officer. I congratulate Kenny MacAskill on securing this debate about Caring in Craigmillar. Kezia Dugdale MSP sends her apologies for not being able to join us and wishes the organisation the very best. She recognises the good work that it does. I join her in congratulating the organisation, its staff and its volunteers on the truly local community spirit that they...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance Settlement (10 Feb 2016)

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance Settlement (10 Feb 2016)

Hanzala Malik: The Scottish Government has added to the Tory cuts and has squeezed local councils further. Glasgow City Council is facing a real-terms cut of £64 million. I have already had several elderly minority ethnic constituents and minority ethnic organisations raise concerns about the tripling of the cost of their day centres. Subsequent job losses are also expected in the area. Does the cabinet...

Scottish Parliament: Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (28 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: It is with interest that I speak about the Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm (Scotland) Bill, which aims to bring Scottish law up to date with changes in society’s view of domestic abuse and with technological changes, to reflect our improved understanding of the issues. Members talked about non-consensual sharing of images. I add my voice to the calls for the bill to cover the sharing of...

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Bill (21 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: I thank Christian Allard for bringing the matter to the chamber. The UK Government’s Immigration Bill is problematic on many levels. The right to rent scheme requires landlords to check immigration status documents. In addition, the bill gives landlords powers to evict a tenant whose right to rent has expired without the need for a court order. If that was extended to Scotland, that would...

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience Plans (Transport Services) (20 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: 3. To ask the Scottish Government how it will revise its winter resilience plans for transport services in light of the disruption to west coast main line services from storm damage. (S4O-05266)

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience Plans (Transport Services) (20 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: The ScotRail alliance announced on Monday that Lamington viaduct will be closed for at least one month longer than was initially expected, due to the discovery of more damage and high water levels hindering repairs. Does the minister agree that winter resilience plans, which have focused on ice and snow, must look at other areas, particularly high winds and flooding? Will he ensure that a...

Scottish Parliament: Public Petitions Process Review (19 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: It is a pleasure to speak on the review of the public petitions process in the Scottish Parliament. The public petitions system and the Public Petitions Committee are an important element in engaging with the people we serve, to try to shape what the Parliament does for them. In general, the system is viewed as positive. I want to share some of the feelings that I have had during my period on...

Scottish Parliament: Public Petitions Process Review (19 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: I want to run something past Mr Torrance, because he has more experience than I have. What about the petitioners who have been unsuccessful? Is there room for their petitions to go through either members’ business or perhaps even through parliamentary motions? That might help the process.

Scottish Parliament: Higher Education Governance (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (14 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: It is an honour to speak in the debate on the Higher Education Governance (Scotland) Bill. There is widespread agreement in the chamber and outside it that Scotland’s universities punch above their weight. They make a major contribution to our economy directly and indirectly, through the human capital that they help to develop. I believe that every organisation, however successful, needs to...

Scottish Parliament: Age and Social Isolation (6 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: Good afternoon, Presiding Officer. I am delighted to take part in today’s debate on the Equal Opportunities Committee’s inquiry into age and social isolation. The Scottish Government has a lot to do in this area of equality, because people who are living with terminal illness and their carers and families can often experience social isolation. I have been contacted by several constituents...

Scottish Parliament: Age and Social Isolation (6 Jan 2016)

Hanzala Malik: I thank the member for all the good work that the committee is doing. I just want to re-emphasise my point about monitoring and measuring the level of success in tackling the issue. Will the committee take that on board with the continuation of its evidence gathering? Will that monitoring take place, and will the committee consider how we can truly measure the scale of success or failure?

Scottish Parliament: Land Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Dec 2015)

Hanzala Malik: Good evening, Presiding Officer. It is a pleasure to talk about the Land Reform (Scotland) Bill. The Labour Party paved the way for radical reform of land ownership and delivered the first phase of reform. Scotland is getting ready for the next phase. It has been a shaky start by the Scottish Government, I must say, but I wish it well in getting to grips with the issue. I hope that the...

Scottish Parliament: Land Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Dec 2015)

Hanzala Malik: For the minister’s benefit, I will repeat that I was wishing her well in getting to grips with land reform. I know that she is keen to do a good job on that.

Scottish Parliament: Land Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Dec 2015)

Hanzala Malik: That is fine. Thank you. To build on what has been done in Scotland and other countries, we must look closely at both policy and practice in recent years. Since the first set of reforms in Scotland, the debate has developed and human rights, environment and transparency of ownership issues have become increasingly important—and why not? They are equally important. Land reform is not just...
