Scottish Parliament: Scottish Attainment Challenge (18 May 2022)

Clare Haughey: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Attainment Challenge (18 May 2022)

Clare Haughey: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I felt that that remark by Pam Gosal was quite rude and condescending.

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (18 May 2022)

Clare Haughey: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I would have voted yes.

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Families (Access to School Education) (26 Apr 2022)

Clare Haughey: I assume that Oliver Mundell is not forgetting about many of the cruel social security cuts that have been presided over by his colleagues at Westminster, including the recent cut of £20 to universal credit, which is resulting in more parents struggling to put food on the table and feed their children.

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Families (Access to School Education) (26 Apr 2022)

Clare Haughey: “Challenges”?

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Families (Access to School Education) (26 Apr 2022)

Clare Haughey: I hear what Stephen Kerr says about targeting money to low-income families, but does he recognise that many of the Scottish Government’s actions to support low-income families, such as increasing the Scottish child payment, are undermined by his colleagues at Westminster when they raise benefits by 3 per cent and cut universal credit?

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Families (Access to School Education) (26 Apr 2022)

Clare Haughey: I hear what Pam Gosal says. She feels distressed when she hears about children whose lives are impacted by poverty. Will she join me in condemning her Tory counterparts at Westminster, who have imposed that poverty on many of the children and families in Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Low-income Families (Access to School Education) (26 Apr 2022)

Clare Haughey: Does the member recognise the impact of a decade of damaging austerity cuts, Brexit price rises and economic mismanagement on children and families across Scotland? Will she join me in calling on the UK Government to scrap the national insurance tax hike, reverse its cuts to universal credit and raise pensions and benefits—which are reserved matters—-rather than impose real-terms cuts?

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: T he Scottish Government’s ambition is for every child in Scotland to grow up loved, safe and respected so that they can reach their full potential, regardless of the circumstances in which they are born. The independent care review told us that that ambition is not the reality for some of the children and young people in our care. On 5 February 2020, parties across the Parliament committed...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: I will make a little bit of progress before taking Mr Whitfield’s intervention. We continue to work closely with The Promise Scotland, and I place on the record my thanks to Fiona Duncan and the team for continuing to drive forward the work that we all require to do to fully realise the conclusions of the independent care review. We look forward to continuing to work together on the journey...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: I do not believe that there has been a late publication. It is my understanding that parliamentary business managers had previous sight of the document. The plan sets out actions that are financial, that require policy change, that require the introduction of guidance, that are legislative, and that, ultimately, require us to change our approach. Key to the change is movement from being...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: I am glad that Mr Rennie welcomes the launch of the consultation today. I take on board what some of the organisations and experts by experience have said to him, but does he also recognise that the Scottish Government set out a number of actions to keep the Promise in the programme for government last September, that the Scottish Government supported and set up the Promise board, including...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: Yes. We committed £4 million to that fund. Willie Rennie says that there has been no progress, but I can demonstrate that there has.

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: Will Jamie Greene give way?

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: I thank members for their contributions to the debate. I am delighted that the cross-party support for keeping the Promise remains so strong, and by the opportunity that is presented to work together to make the change that is required to improve the lives of our care-experienced children, young people, adults and families. That is a sentiment that I have heard from all, across the chamber....

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: Not at all. I thank Mr Whitfield for putting that on the record. I am grateful to him for doing so; it was very gentlemanly and collegiate of him. As members have noted, our approach to supporting our care-experienced people must be holistic. It must recognise the importance of family and, where support is provided, it must recognise the needs of the individual, the situation that surrounds...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: As I said earlier in this speech and in my opening speech, the whole family wellbeing fund is a £500 million fund over the current parliamentary session. There is £50 million for next year, which is to help to change how we support families. Let us be honest and open with one another. As Willie Rennie mentioned, more than 5,500 care-experienced people have told us that change is needed. If...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping the Promise Implementation Plan (30 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: I am concluding. I look forward—this is important—to engaging with more of the care community over the coming months and years to ensure that our national policy intent is felt on the ground, and that our actions continue to take us in the right direction.

Scottish Parliament: United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (10 Mar 2022)

Clare Haughey: We remain committed to the incorporation of the UNCRC into Scots law to the maximum extent possible as soon as is practicable. Although the Supreme Court’s judgment means that the bill cannot receive royal assent in its current form, we are urgently and carefully considering the most effective way forward for the legislation, to ensure that incorporation can happen as quickly as possible...
