Scottish Parliament: Draft Spending and Tax Plans 2018-19 (14 Dec 2017)

Clare Haughey: I refer members to my entry in the register of interests, in that I am a registered mental health nurse with an honorary contract with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. How much money will be spent on innovation and reform of GP services and primary healthcare? Is primary healthcare receiving an increased share of NHS front-line investment in this budget?

Scottish Parliament: Race Equality (14 Dec 2017)

Clare Haughey: Today’s debate and the publication of the race equality action plan send a strong message to people from ethnic minority backgrounds that the Scottish Government is resolute in making our country a better and fairer place, no matter a person’s background or race. The strategy sets out many positive steps that will be taken over the coming years to drive real and lasting change, and it...

Clare Haughey: I thank Monica Lennon for bringing this important debate to the chamber. I also remind members of my entry in the register of interests, as I am a mental health nurse who holds an honorary contract with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. There can be no denying that Scotland continues to have a very troubled relationship with both drugs and alcohol. It is an uncomfortable reality, and one that we...

Scottish Parliament: Alcohol and Drug-related Deaths (20 Dec 2017)

Clare Haughey: Scotland’s relationship with drugs must be changed and radical solutions such as DCRs must be considered.

Scottish Parliament: City Region Deals (9 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: The Cathkin relief road in my constituency was built using city deal funding of more than £20 million. Despite many of my constituents protesting that the road was not needed and that its construction through a wild park would destroy the habitat of many animals and plants, the previous South Lanarkshire Council Labour administration granted planning permission. What assurance can the...

Clare Haughey: Will the cabinet secretary give Parliament an assurance that the SPA will consult all those who it is necessary to consult prior to making future decisions regarding the chief constable’s return to work?

Scottish Parliament: Glasgow 2018 European Championships (10 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: Scotland has a long-standing and proud reputation for being one of the true sporting nations of the world. Famously, Scotland is the country of the Highland games and the birthplace of sports such as the shot put, shinty, and curling. Of course, we are also the home of golf. Although sport is woven through all aspects of our society, right across the whole of our country, the sporting capital...

Scottish Parliament: Social Isolation and Loneliness (18 Jan 2018)

Scottish Parliament: Social Isolation and Loneliness (18 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: I remind members of my entry in the register of members’ interests, as I am a mental health nurse and hold an honorary contract with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. I have listened to the other speakers in the debate, and it is clear that we all agree that action must be taken to address loneliness and social isolation. I am sure that members will also agree that it has been, at points, a...

Scottish Parliament: Health Service Changes (NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde) (23 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: I refer members to my entry in the register of members’ interests. I am a mental health nurse with an honorary contract with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Given the welcome decision to reject the closure of Lightburn hospital, how does the cabinet secretary expect the board and planning partners to take forward provision of health and social care in partnership with the local community?

Scottish Parliament: Unpaid Trial Shifts (23 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: The member mentioned “prolonged” unpaid trial shifts. Does he agree that people should be paid for working for any length of time?

Scottish Parliament: Unpaid Trial Shifts (23 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: I remind colleagues of my entry in the register of members’ interests as a member of Unison. I congratulate Rona Mackay on securing this important debate. I, too, pay tribute to my colleague, the MP for Glasgow South, Stewart McDonald, for his terrific work in his campaign to scrap unpaid trial shifts. As a committed trade unionist, I have fought passionately against discrimination and...

Scottish Parliament: Unpaid Trial Shifts (23 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: I would support any strengthening of employment laws in Scotland to protect young people in particular because they are particularly vulnerable to being exploited in that way. Stewart McDonald’s research showed that more than 55 per cent of people had either been offered an unpaid work trial or knew someone who had. Last year’s “Unpaid Britain” study estimated that £1.2 billion in...

Scottish Parliament: Unpaid Trial Shifts (23 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: Today, I urge Conservative MSPs to lobby their counterparts at Westminster to support Stewart McDonald’s bill. With Brexit on the horizon, many of our workers’ rights could soon be eroded, so it is refreshing that a bill has been introduced that would extend protections, not cut them. During my first speech in this Parliament, I said that “fairness means access to fair work for fair...

Scottish Parliament: Adverse Childhood Experiences (24 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: I refer members to my entry in the register of interests, in that I am a registered mental health nurse and currently hold an honorary contract with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. I, too, thank Gail Ross for bringing this very important issue to the chamber to be debated. I argue that addressing ACEs is the biggest challenge that is faced by public health—not just here in Scotland but...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Support (Schools) (25 Jan 2018)

Clare Haughey: I refer members to my entry in the register of members’ interests—I am a registered mental health nurse. Can the First Minister outline what other actions her Government is taking to improve the mental health and wellbeing of our children and young people and what role the mental health strategy plays in that?

Scottish Parliament: Veterans Charities (7 Feb 2018)

Clare Haughey: I thank Liam Kerr for lodging his important motion to highlight the work that veterans organisations do. Only yesterday, we celebrated 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918, which gave many women the right to vote for the first time. According to a tweet by Poppyscotland yesterday, one of the main reasons that that was made possible, and was supported by the public and...

Scottish Parliament: 2 Sisters Food Group (Cambuslang Factory) (22 Feb 2018)

Clare Haughey: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what engagement it has had with the 2 Sisters Food Group regarding its consultation on closing its factory in Cambuslang. (S5O-01786)

Scottish Parliament: 2 Sisters Food Group (Cambuslang Factory) (22 Feb 2018)

Clare Haughey: Since the announcement of the factory’s proposed closure earlier this month, I have been working with relevant stakeholders to ensure the long-term viability of the site. I have met senior management, the workers, trade unions and neighbouring local businesses to ensure that I am doing all that I possibly can to support 450 jobs at the plant. Indeed, the local community has set up a...

Scottish Parliament: Population Needs and Migration Policy (22 Feb 2018)

Clare Haughey: It is heartening that, despite the best attempts of some populist parties and some sections of our press to frame public opinion against immigration, we as politicians have united today to talk up the positives of immigration rather than build on the anti-migrant rhetoric that seems to be ever more prevalent. The progressive narrative of today’s debate is entirely understandable, as there...
