Scottish Parliament: Refugees and Asylum Seekers (United Kingdom Government Policy) (28 Jun 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: Given that vulnerable people—children, in particular—are being badly let down by the UK Government’s broken asylum system and are having their human rights ignored, with local authorities, charities and the third sector being left to pay for the services that they need, how does the Scottish Government’s approach to refugees and asylum seekers, which is evident in the new Scots...

Scottish Parliament: Boys Brigade Juniors 100th Anniversary (5 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I thank Alexander Stewart for bringing the debate forward. I went through the Boys Brigade as a youngster; I was in the 13th Coatbridge, to be exact—a company that no longer exists, unfortunately. I went through all the sections and have many fond memories of my time in the junior section, which is what inspired me to put my name down to speak in today’s debate. Members might remember...

Scottish Parliament: Boys Brigade Juniors 100th Anniversary (5 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: After I sat down, it dawned on me that I should have taken the opportunity to pay tribute to one of the officers who was in the junior section when I was there: Mr English, from Coatbridge. During the summer recess, I heard the sad news that he had passed away. Given that the minister is talking about volunteers and the work that they do, I thought that I would take this opportunity to pay my...

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy (12 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: By not making the online single application form mandatory and by offering support, including one-to-one assistance, the Government will significantly reduce the pressure on some of our farmers. Does the Government have any estimate of how many of our farmers it expects to help with that form of support?

Scottish Parliament: Barclay Review of Non-domestic Rates (12 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: Will the cabinet secretary expand on the measures that he is taking forward on the back of the Barclay review to ensure that more vacant property—such as in my constituency of Coatbridge and Chryston, particularly in the town centre—is brought back into use?

Scottish Parliament: Serve Scotland (12 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I, too, thank Kate Forbes for her motion and for securing the debate. I also congratulate Serve Scotland on its establishment and the work that it does. It is fitting that the debate comes on the back of last week’s members’ business debate on the Boys Brigade juniors 100th anniversary. As I say regularly in the chamber, my constituency sits in part of Scotland’s old industrial...

Scottish Parliament: Fibre Broadband (New Housing Developments) (13 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to ensure that fibre broadband is installed in new housing developments. (S5O-01236)

Scottish Parliament: Fibre Broadband (New Housing Developments) (13 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: The vast majority of my constituency has had fibre broadband installed, which is welcome. However, thousands of new houses are planned for Coatbridge and Chryston and hundreds of households already do not have fast broadband and will not have it for many years to come. I welcome the response that I have had, but will the cabinet secretary work with the housing minister to ensure that...

Scottish Parliament: Community Justice (14 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I welcome the steps that have been taken by the Government in recent years to tackle domestic abuse, including bringing forward new legislation. Given that increased surveillance and reporting of such offences is likely to lead to higher rates of conviction and community payback orders, what steps is the Government taking to ensure that resources are made available to effective rehabilitation...

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (19 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: Will the minister give an assurance that the push to reduce temporary accommodation will not be at the expense of people with issues that should be addressed in advance of their finding a permanent home, such as debt, ill health or their leaving an abusive relationship, and that we will not be replicating the conditions in certain areas of England where someone cannot refuse an offer of...

Scottish Parliament: Youth Football (26 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I remind colleagues that I am the parliamentary liaison officer to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport. I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak in the debate, and I would like to start by paying tribute to the organisers of the petition, Scott Robertson and William Smith, as others have done, for the massive amount of time and energy that they have put into getting the issue to...

Scottish Parliament: Youth Football (26 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: Does Alex Cole-Hamilton think that the named person legislation could help with some of the issues that he has raised?

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (28 Sep 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I am pleased to be speaking in the debate and am immensely proud that the Justice Committee unanimously agreed to the principles of the bill. How often do we see five parties all agreeing about a bill? That says something about Scotland and the Parliament, and we should all be very proud. During committee we heard evidence upon evidence that the bill is needed and that there is a gap in the...

Scottish Parliament: Radiologists (4 Oct 2017)

Fulton MacGregor: I remind members that I am the parliamentary liaison officer to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport. I also thank Edward Mountain for bringing this important issue to the chamber. I do not necessarily agree with the overall approach that he took, but it is an issue that needs to be raised. I will relay some statistics on what the Government has done. The number of consultants in NHS...
