Scottish Parliament: International Long Covid Day (14 Mar 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: We are still trying to understand long Covid. We should welcome the money that has been invested, but it is likely that more will need to be done. I will go on to develop that point. I mentioned the situation in NHS Lanarkshire. I am due to meet members of its rehabilitation team soon to hear more about their work. I have heard very good things about the work that they are doing. NHS...

Scottish Parliament: Women’s and Girls’ Safety (Public Transport) ( 7 Mar 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: As we approach international women’s day, tomorrow, this is the first of several debates this week regarding women’s experiences in Scotland today. The Scottish Government supports the notion that those who live in Scotland should live lives of freedom and equal opportunity and that a safe, efficient public transport system is one means of realising that concept. The groundbreaking...

Scottish Parliament: Women’s and Girls’ Safety (Public Transport) ( 7 Mar 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: I wonder whether Mr Simpson has had a wee look at my speech, because I am coming to exactly that point. As he may well know, a couple of stations in my constituency might be impacted. Before I talk about that, and to follow on from my previous point, I point out that anyone who witnesses a crime or who feels threatened or is in danger should always dial 999. CCTV and customer service hotlines...

Scottish Parliament: Swimming Lessons ( 2 Mar 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what action it has taken to encourage local authorities to provide all primary school children with the opportunity to access swimming lessons. (S6O-01948)

Scottish Parliament: Swimming Lessons ( 2 Mar 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: In a recent poll of more than 1,000 people in Scotland, 93 per cent of respondents agreed that all children should learn to swim, and 90 per cent agreed that learning to swim is an important part of every child’s education. What further action does the cabinet secretary think that local authorities—including mine, North Lanarkshire Council—can take to ensure that every primary school...

Scottish Parliament: Policing ( 2 Mar 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: I, too, place on record my thanks to Sir Iain Livingstone for all his work. Despite the Tories’ politicking on the issue, they surely cannot deny that police officer numbers in Scotland remain well above those in England. Does the cabinet secretary agree that the fact that we have more police officers, with higher wages, shows the value placed on the vital role that police officers play and...

Scottish Parliament: Teacher Numbers ( 7 Feb 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: Despite the damaging effect of inflation on the Scottish budget and the complete inaction from the Tories at Westminster, can the cabinet secretary outline how the Scottish Government is prioritising education in the 2023-24 budget?

Scottish Parliament: Water Safety (Winter Period) ( 1 Feb 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to promote safety around iced-over bodies of water during the winter period. (S6O-01845)

Scottish Parliament: Water Safety (Winter Period) ( 1 Feb 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: In December, everyone across the country was horrified to hear about the tragic events in Solihull during the cold weather. During the same period in my constituency, a man fell into the iced-over Monkland canal while trying to retrieve his dog. Thanks to the incredibly brave and quick actions of two young girls, Emily Deas and Lauren Campbell, all are safe. Will the minister join me in...

Scottish Parliament: Management of Transgender Individuals in Prison Custody (31 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: I think that we all agree that it is important that the human rights of all parties be considered in balance in the placement of prisoners. Can the cabinet secretary provide assurance that that will continue to remain at the core of considerations?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Child Payment (Coatbridge and Chryston) (26 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: 6. To ask the Scottish Government how many children are estimated to be eligible for the Scottish child payment in the Coatbridge and Chryston constituency. (S6O-01825)

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Child Payment (Coatbridge and Chryston) (26 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: The payment will indeed make a significant difference to families in my constituency. In the face of the soaring inflation that has been caused by the United Kingdom Government’s economic mismanagement, it is most welcome that the Scottish Government has continued to prioritise investment in measures that will help to eradicate child poverty. I am aware that the Scottish Government is...

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (25 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: Homelessness is an issue that unfortunately affects people and families across every city, town and village in Scotland. As we heard from the cabinet secretary, it is an objective of the Scottish Government for everyone in this country to have a safe, warm and affordable home that meets their requirements. The numbers that we have heard are indeed stark. Crisis, which is the national charity...

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (25 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: Thank you, Presiding Officer. Try as the Scottish Government might to combat poverty and homelessness, its actions are consistently undermined by the UK Government’s frankly cruel welfare policies, which actively push people into poverty. We are at the mercy of UK Government decisions, and it is my view and, it seems, increasingly that of many others, that that reinforces—

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (25 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: The situation reinforces the urgent need for independence.

Scottish Parliament: Gartcosh Primary School (19 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what recent discussions it has had with North Lanarkshire Council regarding a new-build Gartcosh primary school. (S6O-01800)

Scottish Parliament: Gartcosh Primary School (19 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: Last week, I was delighted to hear the news, which came just a day or so after I lodged this question, that NLC has now identified land in Gartcosh on which to build the school. I fully welcome the council’s statement, and I agree that it is a major step forward. The question of a new school has been around for some time, and it really needs to be built at the earliest opportunity. The...

Scottish Parliament: Gartcosh Primary School (19 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: —it is very much unable to deal with the current or future capacity. Sorry, Presiding Officer. That said, teachers, pupils and the parent council are doing excellent work at the school and, against the challenging circumstances—

Scottish Parliament: Gartcosh Primary School (19 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: Yes. Will the cabinet secretary join me in praising the work of the school community, and will she commit to working with me and North Lanarkshire Council to ensure that the new build that the community so richly deserves is delivered as quickly as possible?

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living Crisis (19 Jan 2023)

Fulton MacGregor: A report from Nourish Scotland has uncovered a dignity gap relating to the cost of living crisis for Scotland’s most hard-pressed families. The research explains how many families have been compelled to select the cheapest food and drink that is available, rather than the products that they would prefer to choose but cannot afford. That is described as “a dignity gap”. Does the First...
