Jenny Gilruth: I pay tribute to my friend and colleague Fulton MacGregor, who first brought the matter of the Give Them Time campaign to the chamber in May this year in a members’ business debate. I also thank the members of the campaign for all their tenacious work on the issue, and Iain Gray, for lodging the motion for debate today. As has been said, the Give Them Time campaign advocates for “a more...

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: The Tory Government has been found by the highest court in the land to have acted unlawfully in shutting down Parliament at a time of national crisis in an attempt to prevent Parliament holding Government to account. Does the First Minister agree that the members of Parliament who supported such action, including the 12 Tory MPs in Scotland, put their careers before their constituents and...

Scottish Parliament: Common Frameworks (24 Sep 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: I am not a member of the Finance and Constitution Committee, but the content of the report on common frameworks should be of importance to all members. I add my thanks to all members who were involved in the report, and to the committee clerks. At the time of its publication in March, the committee’s report unanimously called for the Scottish Parliament to have “a formal role” in...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Parliament Suspension (12 Sep 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: How does the current suspension of the United Kingdom Parliament affect the First Minister’s Government and this Parliament’s preparations for Brexit? If prorogation is unlawful, why is Westminster not back to work?

Will the First Minister join me in congratulating the resolute dedication and commitment...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: We must sit up straight in this place. Each member has a chair, a desk and a lectern. It is no place for lounging, because this is a Parliament whose members come here to work and to represent the people who elect us. I am sure that, over the past while, we have all watched more television coverage of the Westminster Parliament than we care to remember. All that that has done for me is to...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: I do not know what deal he is talking about—there is no deal. He is living in a fantasy land. Boris has not secured a deal—it does not exist.

Boris, whose comments led to the imprisonment of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe; Boris, who compared women who wear burqas and niqabs to letterboxes; Boris, who...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Act 2004 Review (20 Jun 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: The Equality Act 2010 and the Gender Recognition Act 2004 have been in place for more than a decade. The 2010 act provides a clear exemption for transgender people accessing single-sex spaces and services where that is proportionate and reasonable. Will the cabinet secretary explain whether the changes that are being outlined today seek to change that in any way?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland Acts (13 Jun 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: Today’s Daily Record reports on the Tory party’s latest priority, which is that it wants its new Westminster leader to rip up the Scotland Acts and seize control of spending and decision making in devolved areas. Does the First Minister condemn that latest attempt at a power grab on Scotland’s Parliament?

Scottish Parliament: Primary 1 Standardised Assessments (11 Jun 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: Given that the standardised assessments replaced what was already used in 28 of Scotland’s 32 local authorities, how will the Scottish Government ensure that they are not used in addition to those that existed previously, many of which were not benchmarked against curriculum for excellence?
