Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (8 Oct 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: [ Inaudible .]

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus Legislation (6 Oct 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: As we have heard already today, we know that the emergency legislation is wide ranging, and the provisions affect a wide variety of policy areas. Will the cabinet secretary provide details of how the Scottish Government arrives at the decision on which provisions will be renewed and which will expire?

Scottish Parliament: Miscarriage (6 Oct 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: I thank Shona Robison for bringing the debate to the chamber and for her commitment to making improvements in this area. This is the second time that I have spoken in a debate on this issue. I spoke in James Dornan’s members’ business debate, which Monica Lennon mentioned, last year—I cannot remember exactly when it was—and I apologise in advance to the official reporters if some of...

Scottish Parliament: Family Care Givers (30 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: The point has already been made that visiting is a fundamental part of the health and wellbeing of those who live in care homes, particularly in the case of people who are living with dementia, but it is also fundamental for their loved ones, who, in normal circumstances, would be used to spending time with their families. It is such an important conversation that we are having today, the day...

Scottish Parliament: Albion Rovers FC (Mark Millar Donation) (30 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: It gives me great pleasure to open the debate. I thank all members who signed the motion for the cross-party support that it has received. I declare an interest as a relatively recent member of the board of the Albion Rovers communities trust and I am also the convener of the cross-party group on the future of football in Scotland. There will be two main strands to my contribution. First, I...

Scottish Parliament: Albion Rovers FC (Mark Millar Donation) (30 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: The member mentioned Rangers and Celtic. Does he recognise that a late chairman of Albion Rovers, Gordon Dishington, said that we have to accept that most people in local towns support the bigger teams, but he always hoped that they would lend their secondary support to their local team? Will the live streaming of games present an opportunity for that to happen, so that a Rangers, Celtic or...

Scottish Parliament: Dentists (Pandemic Financial Support) (23 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what financial support it has put in place for national health service dentists during the Covid-19 pandemic. (S5O-04621)

Scottish Parliament: Dentists (Pandemic Financial Support) (23 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: I have been contacted by a number of constituents who have advised me that they have been unable to get dental care through their NHS dentist. They have been advised to seek treatment privately, but in some cases they cannot afford that. Can the minister advise whether the Scottish Government has plans to allow NHS dentists to carry out the same level of treatment that private practices are...

Scottish Parliament: Minority Ethnic People and Communities (22 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: I, too, welcome today’s debate. We know that the Scottish Government has allocated more than £2.6 million in 2019-20 to fund organisations working to advance race equality, but at the heart of this debate is the message that it is the job of all of us to tackle inequality. That is one of the benefits of this type of debate. We can see from the number of briefings that we have received from...

Scottish Parliament: Minority Ethnic People and Communities (22 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: That was only two minutes.

Scottish Parliament: Minority Ethnic People and Communities (22 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: I had so much more to say, Presiding Officer. As I do not have the time to go through all the questions, I will conclude by saying that, as convener of the cross-party group, I will write to the minister with the questions that were asked at the group’s last meeting.

Scottish Parliament: Employment Support (17 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: The points today have been well made. There can be absolutely no doubt that the UK Government should extend the furlough scheme. Six countries, including our neighbours in France and Ireland, have already extended their equivalent schemes, so let us not be last to the party. Yes, many folk are now back at work but, equally, there are sectors in which people are not, and might not be for some...

Scottish Parliament: Migration and Care Workers (15 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: As other members have, I want to recognise and thank care sector staff for the immeasurable amount of work that they have undertaken during the on-going pandemic. When members reflect on that, I think that they will agree that it has become more apparent than ever that non-UK citizens have played a huge role in the sector at this time. The buzzword term that has been used of them is “key...

Scottish Parliament: Internal Market (10 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: There can be no denying that this bill is a power grab. Is the cabinet secretary concerned by the UK Government’s plans to provide powers to UK ministers to spend directly in our devolved areas?

Scottish Parliament: Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill (9 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: We can all agree that there is no room in 21st century Scotland for prejudice, hatred, discrimination or bigotry. Like my colleague Rona Mackay, I am a wee bit puzzled by the Tory motion, because it comes at the issue from the wrong angle. I know that individual Tories are very much committed to tackling prejudice, but I cannot help but question their position when they lodge a motion that...

Scottish Parliament: United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (2 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: I, too, fully welcome the announcement of the bill. Can the cabinet secretary set out how the incorporation of the UNCRC into Scots law will complement the current children’s human rights frameworks that are used by the Scottish Government, such as the routine publishing of children’s rights and wellbeing impact assessments?

Scottish Parliament: Children (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Aug 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: I support the Government’s amendments 8 and 12 to 16 and Liam McArthur’s amendment 48. As a member of the Justice Committee, I was clear from the get-go that the bill’s purpose was to put the interests and views of the child at the centre. The minister has listened to concerns that were raised in the committee, and most of the amendments tighten the bill up and—I hope—make it better...

Scottish Parliament: Pupil Safety (Covid-19) (20 Aug 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: The First Minister is aware of the cluster in Coatbridge, which includes five pupils at two secondary schools. I thank her for her attention to that. I also thank NHS Lanarkshire and the council for their swift response and for keeping elected representatives and the public up to date. What action is being taken to ensure the safety of school pupils where such isolated Covid-19 outbreaks have...
