Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Her Majesty's Prison Inverness (Female Unit) (15 Dec 2005)

Margaret Ewing: There is a desperate need for female prisoners to be close to their family and friends. However, I believe that the latest annual figures show that about 290 females were sent to prison for fine default, which means that they are removed from their family—in particular their children—and friends. Is there no mechanism for reducing the number of women who are sent to prison for fine default?

Scottish Parliament: Excess Winter Deaths (Greater Glasgow) (15 Dec 2005)

Margaret Ewing: I join others in congratulating Paul Martin on securing this timely debate. We have such debates every year, but this year it is, because of the prospect of a severe winter, even more important that we address the issues and consider how we can resolve matters. I have one of the blue thermometers that Tommy Sheridan mentioned. I check it regularly and because my husband Fergus is a bit of a...

Scottish Parliament: Steiner Schools (14 Dec 2005)

Margaret Ewing: I will not follow David McLetchie in his interpretation of the Rev I M Jolly on the future prospects of the current Prime Minister, but I join him in congratulating Mike Pringle on bringing the subject before the Parliament. I seem to remember that previous discussions on Steiner schools have been tucked away in amendments to major education bills. We have not had the opportunity to explore...

Scottish Parliament: Steiner Schools (14 Dec 2005)

Margaret Ewing: Yes, but the decisions are taken by Moray Council when parents have made applications for particular reasons. The decision is, quite properly, for the education authorities, in discussion with the parents. The children are funded; their transportation costs are included. The example shows how we can bring the Steiner schools much more into the main stream. On a day on which the so-called...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Health and Community Care: Insulin Pump Therapy ( 8 Dec 2005)

Margaret Ewing: When does the minister expect the health boards to accept those important recommendations? I am sure that the issue is not unique for constituents in my area and that it has been raised with other members. Given the approval that has been mentioned, is it not sad that only 0.19 per cent of sufferers in the United Kingdom currently receive the treatment? We are lagging pitifully behind...

Scottish Parliament: AIDS ( 1 Dec 2005)

Margaret Ewing: I thank the First Minister for his response; it was very detailed and is in the context of a severe problem, as we all know well. Do members realise that 2,400,000 people will die this year in Africa alone as a result of AIDS? That is 8,500 people every day. The efforts that are being made by Parliament are hugely appreciated in Malawi and beyond. Will the First Minister tap into the rich...
