Karen Adam: Will Pam Gosal take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women and Girls (Men’s Role in Eradication) (30 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: Predatory men do exist. They do not need to dress as a woman or to sign a statutory declaration for a gender recognition certificate in order to attack women. Does Pam Gosal think that it is important that we do not conflate trans people with predatory men?

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women and Girls (Men’s Role in Eradication) (30 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: Presiding Officer, I am concerned that we are conflating the gender recognition bill with men’s responsibility for gender-based violence. We should not be standing here, passing the blame on to rights for other people. It lies solely at the feet of men—predatory men.

Karen Adam: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (22 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: I have probably mentioned a few times in the chamber that my constituency contains many fishing communities. Integrity is embedded in those communities, which have a real pride in their fishing culture and heritage. The set of principles that the Scottish Government brings to the table in the negotiations is aligned with that long-established good faith and integrity, and Scotland is regarded...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (22 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: An increase in landings is fantastic, but we have to ensure that onshore processors have the labour to cope with them. The industry is feeling a lot of pressure in that respect. That said, I agree with my colleague Finlay Carson that it is good news. The commitment to sustainable fisheries management is locked into our overarching fisheries management strategy, and the negotiations will drive...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (22 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: I have been working with the Campaign for North East Rail on the issue of rail to Peterhead. Will the member join me in that campaign to ensure that we do get rail back there?

Scottish Parliament: Disabled People Leaving School (Positive Destinations) (17 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: I welcome the update from the Scottish Government on what it is doing to improve positive destinations for disabled people leaving school. How many people are accessing modern apprenticeships and how does the number compare with pre-pandemic numbers?

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Workplace Stigma) (10 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: I thank my colleague Emma Roddick for bringing the motion to Parliament for debate and for clearly setting out many of the issues surrounding mental health support in the workplace. It is quite apparent that I have a mental health condition; I have panic disorder due to post-traumatic stress disorder, as was apparent when I gave my first speech in Parliament and my legs did not work. I am...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Support and Food Security (8 Nov 2022)

Karen Adam: Amid the positivity of what the cabinet secretary has set out today, the elephant in the room—Brexit—is still there. Our trade in goods with the European Union was 12 per cent lower in 2021 because of Brexit and it has been reported that the cost of lost exports to the EU is more than £2.2 billion. The food and drink sector in Scotland has been blighted by the hard Brexit that has been...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Oct 2022)

Karen Adam: T o my colleague Jamie Greene, I say that some of the things that he said he does not know, I do, and I am honoured to have the privilege to talk from that point of view today. This is a wonderful day—a day when I can stand in this chamber and take part in shaping legislation that will improve the lives of citizens in Scotland who are some of the most marginalised, misunderstood and...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government (Independence Referendum) (26 Oct 2022)

Karen Adam: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on whether the reported on-going political instability within the United Kingdom Government impacts on the timing of its plans to ask the constitutional question of whether Scotland should be an independent country. (S6O-01444)

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government (Independence Referendum) (26 Oct 2022)

Karen Adam: With Liz Truss having become Prime Minister with the backing of just 80,000 voters and now Rishi Sunak’s taking up of the post being co-ordinated by a cluster of Tory MPs, the Conservative Party’s democratic mandate is becoming more and more diluted. Does the cabinet secretary agree that the Tories have no leg to stand on when they question the Scottish Government’s cast-iron mandate to...

Scottish Parliament: Moray Maternity Services (25 Oct 2022)

Karen Adam: How will the Scottish Government continue to keep the invaluable voices and lived experience of the women and families of Moray central to its decision making as we move forward?

Scottish Parliament: Hunting with Dogs (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Oct 2022)

Karen Adam: As a member of the Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee, I am pleased to participate in the debate and in our deliberations. It is true to say that the committee has endorsed the general principles of the bill and that the evidence from stakeholders has been constructive and supportive. For example, NFU Scotland stressed the need to maintain effective, practical and...

Scottish Parliament: Hunting with Dogs (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Oct 2022)

Karen Adam: I do. I agree with the member in that regard. They can cause damage. However, as we heard in committee, there are other ways of controlling rabbits , and we need to look at those other options that do not involve them being hunted down with dogs. In Scotland, we need to set the highest standards for animal welfare.
