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: 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: 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: 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...
