Scottish Parliament: Health (18 Jan 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I remind colleagues that I am the parliamentary liaison officer to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport.

I am sure that, as others have said, having brought the debate to the chamber, the Tories will now...

Scottish Parliament: Health (18 Jan 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I do not have time. Parent Action for Safe Play concentrates on providing sports and opportunities to play in disadvantaged areas. It has a purpose-built playground and runs an active play programme in schools across the constituency. A crucial point is that it teaches primary 6 and 7 pupils skills that they can pass on to P1s and 2s, which leaves a legacy and ensures that children from age 5...

Scottish Parliament: Celebrating Burns and the Scots Language (25 Jan 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: My thanks to Emma Harper for giving me and everybody else the opportunity to talk in the debate. It is fair to say that I am a wee bit of a Burns fan.

It features a whole load of different singers...

Scottish Parliament: Jobcentre Plus Network (8 Feb 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: Like many other members who have spoken in the debate, I was shocked and disappointed by the decision that was announced a week or so ago about the further jobcentre closures in Glasgow and throughout Scotland. It is just another in a long line of decisions that have been taken by the distant and remote Tory party in London with no regard for the people who are involved, the surrounding...

Scottish Parliament: Jobcentre Plus Network (8 Feb 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: While I was there I met district manager Etta Wright and a group of the job coaches. The visit was very encouraging, and it was clear that the enthusiastic staff at the centre offer an excellent and dynamic service; indeed, I am glad that Bob Doris and others have mentioned that. I heard about the team’s dedication to ensuring that their service delivery is and continues to be customer...

Fulton MacGregor: I am sorry to disappoint everybody, but there is one more member to go before the minister. I thank Stuart McMillan for bringing the debate to the chamber.

As Jeremy Balfour has just said, Barnardo’s is a fantastic organisation, and I wish it well with...

Next week is apprenticeship week, and all members will have been invited to visit a local organisation involved with Skills Development Scotland. I am looking forward to...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Patient Safety Programme (2 Mar 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I am pleased to speak in the debate, and I remind members that I am the parliamentary liaison officer to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport. As has been mentioned, the hospital standardised mortality ratios for Scotland decreased by 16.5 per cent between 2007 and 2015, and the latest published figures show that there has been an 8.6 per cent reduction in hospital standardised...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Patient Safety Programme (2 Mar 2017)

The 2020 vision delivers the necessary strategic narrative and context for...

Scottish Parliament: Education (8 Mar 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: Educators and others who work in schools and colleges across Scotland will be angry—and rightly so—at the wording of today’s Labour motion and Labour members’ apparent keenness to use our schools as a tool to attack the SNP with. As the cabinet secretary has acknowledged, there are clearly improvements to be made in our education system, but Labour’s constant attacks on teachers and...

Scottish Parliament: Education (8 Mar 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I urge Labour to start backing our teachers and young people. Instead of constantly seeking to use our teachers and classroom assistants as a tool to criticise the SNP, Labour should start being constructive and should work with the Government.
