Scottish Parliament: Local National Health Services (28 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: No, sorry. At the time, the changes were difficult. Service users, carers, staff and the public were worried and concerned about bed and hospital closures. People worried that services would not meet their expectations. They worried about safety. However, no one would argue for a return to old ways of working. We accept that the model of mental health service delivery is much more modern,...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Living Wage) (5 Oct 2016)

Clare Haughey: 7. To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making to ensure that national health service staff receive at least the living wage. (S5O-00217)

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Living Wage) (5 Oct 2016)

Clare Haughey: As NHS Scotland staff are guaranteed the real living wage, how much better off per year is someone in Scotland who enters the lowest point in agenda for change band 1 compared to somebody in the same situation in NHS England ?

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (6 Oct 2016)

Clare Haughey: The First Minister will share my concern at today’s news that a hard Brexit could cost Scotland 80,000 jobs. A report from the Fraser of Allander institute shows that the weaker our economic integration with the European Union, the greater the negative impact. Does the First Minister think that it is high time that the Tories dropped their bluster over leaving the single market and...

Scottish Parliament: Drug Users Injecting Facility (Glasgow) (1 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: What lessons might be drawn from the medically supervised safe injecting rooms in Sydney in Australia and from other centres around the world that might add to the potential benefits of such a facility in Glasgow?

Scottish Parliament: Local Authorities (Fiscal Autonomy) (2 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: As part of the proposed reforms to council tax, the Government agreed to increase support for households with children. How many children will benefit from the increase in the child allowance in the council tax reduction scheme?

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Audit Scotland Report and Service Development) (2 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: Staff banks can provide boards with access to a pool of appropriately trained non-agency staff who can provide short-term supplementary cover when required. I am sure that the cabinet secretary will join me in commending those who give of their time in that way, often at short notice. Of the total nursing and midwifery staff in NHS Scotland, what percentage is agency staff? What is the...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (2 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: The Audit Scotland report demonstrates that there is still work to be done. However, as my colleague Ash Denham said, there is nothing unique about the challenges that are faced by the health service in Scotland. Those challenges are faced by other Administrations throughout the UK and, indeed, many other countries worldwide, and the Scottish Government is focused on meeting those challenges....

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (2 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: At yesterday’s Health and Sport Committee, we heard a stark example of how our rural services rely on overseas-born staff. Of the 13 consultants employed in the Western Isles, only one is Scots born. The Western Isles has been actively recruiting in Spain for other vacancies, but uncertainty about EU nationals’ status post-Brexit may hamper efforts. Given that this is a consequence of a...

Scottish Parliament: Welfare Conditionality Study (2 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: I thank Sandra White for the debate and welcome the findings of the welfare conditionality study. The findings support the view of many members that for too many users the welfare sanctions system is draconian, dehumanising and ineffective. The study illustrates that linking receipt of benefits to mandatory behavioural requirements is too often a very blunt instrument that creates “anxiety...

Scottish Parliament: Point of Order (3 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Yesterday in the chamber Alex Cole-Hamilton raised a point of order. He stated: “we have had five sycophantic questions from members of the Government’s party”.—[ Official Report , 2 November 2016; c 30.] That related to questions following a statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport. Rule 7.3 of the standing orders of the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland (Estate Review) (8 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: I note the minister’s answers. All three police stations in my constituency—in Rutherglen, Cambuslang and Blantyre—are being considered as part of the review. What consultation will take place with the community in Rutherglen to ensure that policing in my constituency is not adversely affected?

Scottish Parliament: Health and Social Care (European Union Workforce) (8 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: Like many in the chamber, I woke on 24 June to discover that the UK as a whole had voted to leave the European Union and that Scotland had overwhelmingly voted to remain as part of the EU. The lack of a coherent plan by those who had led us a merry dance towards an economic cliff edge quickly became apparent to all. The major players on both sides of the debate quickly exited the stage and...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change Action (10 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: Does the cabinet secretary share my view that recent events at home and abroad underline the need for concerted international co-operation in the fight against climate change?

Scottish Parliament: National Manufacturing Institute (17 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: 2. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on how it will take forward plans to establish a national manufacturing institute. (S5O-00356)

Scottish Parliament: National Manufacturing Institute (17 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: My constituency has a wide range of family-run and medium-sized manufacturing businesses, including sack makers, switchboard and electrical manufacturers, ventilation product manufacturers and food manufacturers, to name a few. It is also home to the Shawfield retail and trade park, which is currently being developed by Clyde Gateway as part of the national business strategy. Has the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (17 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: I am aware that the Scottish Government has consulted widely with survivors and survivor groups, and I welcome the steps that have been taken so far. Will the cabinet secretary confirm that he will continue to listen throughout the process, to ensure that we have in place the right arrangements and supports and that we take full account of the impact of abuse on survivors?

Scottish Parliament: Erskine Hospital 100th Anniversary (22 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: I thank Maurice Corry for bringing forward the debate and giving members the opportunity to congratulate Erskine on the anniversary of its foundation, and to commend it for the fantastic work that it has done over the past century. The first world war saw battlefield carnage on an unprecedented scale. At recent remembrance ceremonies we rightly commemorated those who served in that war and...

Scottish Parliament: Secondary School Building (South Lanarkshire Council) (23 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: 8. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with South Lanarkshire Council regarding the building of secondary schools. (S5O-00372)

Scottish Parliament: Secondary School Building (South Lanarkshire Council) (23 Nov 2016)

Clare Haughey: There has been a significant increase in house building in my constituency over the past 10 years, particularly in the Halfway and Newton area of Cambuslang. Unfortunately, poor planning by South Lanarkshire Council means that there is a dearth of facilities to support that otherwise welcome expansion. Although there is new primary school provision in the area, changes to school catchment...
