Scottish Parliament: Oaths and Affirmations (12 May 2016)

Clare Haughey: took the oath.

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward: Creating a Fairer Scotland (2 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: Thank you, Presiding Officer. I congratulate you and your colleagues on your election to your new roles. I am very pleased to have been selected to make my first speech on an issue that is close to my heart: building a fairer Scotland for all her citizens; a Scotland where everyone has the same opportunities to succeed in life regardless of their background, race, creed, age, gender or...

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward: Health (7 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: Members might be aware that this is the first national infant mental health week. As a mental health nurse who has worked with mothers and their infants for the past 12 years, I warmly welcome the initiative and I hope that it will be the first of many such weeks that are aimed at raising awareness and knowledge of that very important issue. Many members might wonder exactly what infant...

Scottish Parliament: Clyde Gateway (Funding) (9 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: 7. To ask the Scottish Government whether the Clyde Gateway project will continue to receive core funding. (S5O-00027)

Scottish Parliament: Clyde Gateway (Funding) (9 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: I thank the cabinet secretary for his answer. Contaminated land is an unwelcome legacy in my constituency because of the area’s industrial past. Can the cabinet secretary give an assurance that the Clyde Gateway project will receive funding to allow it to continue its land decontamination work in the Shawfield area of Rutherglen?

Scottish Parliament: Schools (South Lanarkshire) (15 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: The cabinet secretary will be aware of the calls for a new secondary school in the Halfway area of my constituency. Does he agree that given that 107 schools have been built or refurbished in South Lanarkshire since 2007—more than in any other local authority area—the issue in South Lanarkshire is not caused by a lack of Government investment in schools? Will he raise the issue with South...

Scottish Parliament: Schools (South Lanarkshire) (15 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: 2. To ask the Scottish Government how much it has invested in building or refurbishing schools in South Lanarkshire since 2007. (S5O-00032)

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Membership (15 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: As an active trade unionist and formerly a divisional convener with Unison, it is particularly satisfying for me to open tonight’s debate to welcome the recent increase in trade union membership in Scotland. The trade union movement has a proud history of protecting workers’ rights that was born of a desire to combat exploitation and ensure a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. The...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Membership (15 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: I will, if Neil Findlay will let me carry on a wee bit longer. One of the greatest achievements of the trade union movement was ensuring the basic right of a safe place to work. Health and safety at work legislation would not be as rigorous as it is today without the work and sacrifice of trade union members over the past 130 years. Of course, terrible accidents can still occur; I ask...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Membership (15 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: I think that I will move on from that point. At its peak in 1979, trade union membership in the United Kingdom stood in excess of 13 million—double the current figure. Of course, the industrial landscape has changed and, sadly, the traditional industries that I mentioned have declined—a decline that was outrageously mismanaged by the Thatcher Government in the 1980s, with the underlying...

Scottish Parliament: In Vitro Fertilisation (Access to Treatment) (16 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: 8. To ask the First Minister what action the Scottish Government is taking to improve access to IVF treatment. (S5F-00103)

Scottish Parliament: In Vitro Fertilisation (Access to Treatment) (16 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: I thank the First Minister for her answer and for the action that her Government is taking to ensure that IVF provision in Scotland is as fair and as generous as possible. When will those changes come into effect, ensuring that Scotland remains at the forefront on IVF action and rights across the UK?

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Act 2016 (30 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: Does the minister agree that a workplace in which trade union membership is recognised and encouraged is a safer and wealthier workplace, and that the Trade Union Act 2016 could jeopardise that?

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2016-17 (7 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: I am pleased to speak about education, which is a key element in the programme for government debate. I am sure that colleagues across the chamber agree that education is an important aspect of a child’s development. It is only right that politicians of all persuasions focus on ensuring that, as a nation, we deliver a first-class education system that leaves no child behind, regardless of...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: I congratulate Michael Russell on his appointment as Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe. In June this year, a week before the EU referendum, while speaking on a motion welcoming increased trade union membership in Scotland, I warned that the greatest threat to workers’ rights would be a vote to leave the EU on 23 June. I was deeply concerned then about the impact...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: No, thanks. For our manufacturing, engineering, food and drink and finance sectors, any loss of access to the EU market matters. The benefits cannot easily be replaced by instantaneous access to markets round the world. Such access takes many years to develop. Potential trading partners such as the US, Japan and Australia have already signalled that they will not negotiate with the UK while...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: No—I would rather just keep going, thanks. The free movement of people matters as it allows EU students to continue to study here and gives our students the opportunity to study in Europe.

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: Many things that we take for granted have been possible only with the help of EU funding, especially in areas such as my constituency of Rutherglen, where traditional industries have declined or disappeared altogether. European regional funds have supported many projects in the area. Clyde Gateway successfully bid for EU funds for a variety of projects, including the reclamation of...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (15 Sep 2016)

Clare Haughey: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Under rule 7.3, I seek your guidance on the comments that were made by Ruth Davidson during First Minister’s questions this afternoon. She quoted a warning from a representative of the Society for Acute Medicine that there would be “pockets of meltdown” in the national health service this winter. What Ruth Davidson failed to mention was that that...

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

Clare Haughey: As one of three healthcare professionals recently elected to the Parliament and one of the two nurses in the chamber today, I feel that it is particularly important for me to speak in this debate on the future of healthcare services. The Government’s vision is that, by 2020, everyone will be able to live longer, healthier lives at home or in a similar setting. To ensure quality and...
