Scottish Parliament: Hospitality Sector (Financial Support) (22 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: 6. To ask the Scottish Government what further financial support it considers may be necessary to assist the hospitality sector as the Covid-19 pandemic continues. (S6O-00571)

Scottish Parliament: Hospitality Sector (Financial Support) (22 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: Just last night, I was contacted by a constituent who operates SDLS Dancewear in Coatbridge, the only such shop in North Lanarkshire. The cancellations of dance events and pantomimes following yesterday’s announcement has absolutely devastated my constituent’s income so close to Christmas. What support does the Government intend to give businesses such as that, which are more indirectly...

Scottish Parliament: Dalzell Historical Industrial Transaction (15 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: As the representative of a constituency that has a proud steelworks heritage, including the Gartcosh finishing mill that was closed in 1986 to a huge public outcry—I was only six the at time, but my granddad worked there—I ask whether the minister can provide any further detail on the Scottish Government’s latest engagement with steel sector stakeholders regarding the challenges and...

Scottish Parliament: Ending the Not Proven Verdict (15 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I understand why Jamie Greene lodged his motion on behalf of his party. He is on the Criminal Justice Committee, as I am, so he has heard at first hand the heartbreaking evidence from witnesses about their feeling that they have been failed, and sometimes—in cases such as those that we are discussing—even retraumatised by the justice system. However, there can be no doubt that today’s...

Scottish Parliament: Schools and Early Learning (Recovery and Improvement) (14 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: What measures is the Scottish Government taking to expand early learning and childcare? Will the cabinet secretary reiterate how that will aid our overall education recovery?

Scottish Parliament: Human Rights Day 2021 (9 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: It is a real privilege to bring this members’ business debate to the chamber, and I thank those members across the chamber who supported the motion. Tomorrow, 10 December, marks human rights day, which is the day in 1948 that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As members will no doubt know, the declaration was, and still is, a milestone...

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2022-23 (9 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I put on record my thanks to the cabinet secretary for the groundbreaking child poverty measures that she has announced. Nobody in the chamber should vote against that, come budget time. On that basis, I ask about school uniforms. The cabinet secretary will be aware that I have done some work pushing for them to be more affordable. Will she comment on how that was taken into the decisions...

Scottish Parliament: Stillbirth (Support for Parents) (2 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what support is in place for parents who experience stillbirth. (S6O-00484)

Scottish Parliament: Stillbirth (Support for Parents) (2 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I have been working with a group in my constituency called Baby Loss Retreat , which supports patients who experience baby loss at all stages. They have told me that aftercare for parents is often inconsistent and, in some cases, is inadvertently retraumatising—for example, when people are treated close to newborn babies, who might be heard crying. Is the Government considering reviewing...

Scottish Parliament: Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (Patient Safety) (1 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Ventilation in Schools (1 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: The issue is important, and I thank the Labour Party for bringing it to the Parliament for debate—I mean that genuinely. As other members have said, there are already many mitigations in education settings throughout Scotland, such as the continued use of face coverings in communal areas and secondary classrooms—I was glad to hear the UK Government recently follow our lead on that; a...

Scottish Parliament: Ventilation in Schools (1 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I will not, just because of the amount of time that I have. I have some things that I want to say. The Scottish Government has allocated an additional £10 million to local authorities to ensure that schools and childcare settings have access to CO2 monitoring. I am aware, from a freedom of information request, that North Lanarkshire Council purchased and distributed 1,000 CO2 monitors in...

Scottish Parliament: Deferred Entry to Primary 1 (Funding for Early Learning and Childcare) (25 Nov 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: 6. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide further details of its plans to entitle all children whose school start is deferred to access funded early learning and childcare in their deferred year. (S6O-00451)

Scottish Parliament: Deferred Entry to Primary 1 (Funding for Early Learning and Childcare) (25 Nov 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: Will the minister provide further information on how the pilots are progressing? Will she outline how the Government intends to communicate the change in order to ensure that all families, in the pilot areas and more widely, are aware of their deferral rights?

Scottish Parliament: Millbrae Care Home (Covid-19 Vaccinations) (25 Nov 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: The First Minister will be aware that, in December last year, 11 residents at Millbrae care home, which is in my constituency, were mistakenly given a saline solution instead of the Covid-19 vaccination. I understand that the situation was quickly rectified by NHS Lanarkshire and that no harm was caused to residents, but can the First Minister offer reassurance that that incident was an...

Scottish Parliament: Infrastructure Investment (Coatbridge and Chryston) (11 Nov 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has for infrastructure investment in the Coatbridge and Chryston constituency. (S6O-00365)

Scottish Parliament: Infrastructure Investment (Coatbridge and Chryston) (11 Nov 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: The minister will be aware of the Gartcosh business interchange in my constituency, which has been developed by Scottish Enterprise and already includes the very impressive Scottish crime campus. He might also be aware that the site was shortlisted as one of the proposed sites for the new Monklands hospital, to which he referred. The consultation on the hospital was lengthy and thorough, and,...

Scottish Parliament: Early Learning and Childcare (3 Nov 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: It gives me great pleasure to speak in the debate. I have a four-year-old who currently benefits from the 1,140 hours, and I, for one, am very grateful for that. I think that parents up and down the country, and certainly those in my constituency, feel the same, particularly as people strive to find a childcare-work balance, mainly for women and mothers. For me, that is a major part of what...

Scottish Parliament: Barnahus Model (6 Oct 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: 4. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on its plans to implement a bairns’ hoose, or Barnahus, model for children and vulnerable witnesses in criminal proceedings. (S6O-00238)

Scottish Parliament: Barnahus Model (6 Oct 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: I thank the cabinet secretary for that response and his reference to the governance group. Will the governance group look at ensuring that children and young people who are involved in sexual abuse cases, for instance, will be prioritised through the system? Will there be scope for adult survivors of such crimes to access the facilities when cases of historical abuse are brought forward, even...
