Scottish Parliament: Bus Service Improvements (West of Scotland) ( 2 Feb 2022)

Clare Adamson: This week, around 930,000 young people across Scotland became able to benefit from free bus travel. The scheme will have a positive impact on young people in my constituency, particularly those travelling to college or university. In welcoming the minister to her post, I ask her to provide an update on the number of applications that have been received and the number of cards that have been...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 ( 1 Feb 2022)

Clare Adamson: What is the First Minister’s response to reports that almost 5 billion items of personal protective equipment that were procured by the UK Government at a cost of £2.7 billion will be wasted because they are surplus or are unsuitable for safeguarding NHS staff?

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2022-23 (Committees’ Pre-budget Scrutiny) (26 Jan 2022)

Clare Adamson: I am delighted to speak on behalf of the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee. I am sure that a few “weel-swall’d kytes ... Are bent like drums” in the chamber today. Burns night is, quite simply, a global phenomenon and it is estimated that 9.5 million people take part in Burns suppers across the globe each year. We know from the report, “Robert Burns in the...

Scottish Parliament: Education and the 2022 Examination Diet (19 Jan 2022)

Clare Adamson: The Conservative members who are in the chamber are often keen to describe the perceived benefits of being part of the UK as the broad shoulders of the union, but I have always found those shoulders a tad slopey. Today, Conservative members have not just slopey shoulders, but brass necks. Ms Gallacher’s motion does not even give the subject of debate its full title. It is the...

Scottish Parliament: Education and the 2022 Examination Diet (19 Jan 2022)

Clare Adamson: The member is obviously not aware of what is happening in schools right now and where the support is coming from for families who need digital devices. I know where the families in my area need to go to get them, so perhaps he needs to investigate how to get them himself. I commend Claire Baker for her constructive comments, but I wish that we also had powers over employment law in Scotland,...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (18 Jan 2022)

Clare Adamson: The vaccination certification programme has been pivotal in allowing people to take part in activities in Scotland during Covid restrictions and in allowing those who travel abroad for work or pleasure to meet the requirements of the country that they are visiting. Will the First Minister give any advice to people who rely on a paper copy of the vaccination certificate to ensure that they can...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (13 Jan 2022)

Clare Adamson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. [Interruption.] I had a point of order, but I now have an update on my screen that says that I voted no, which is what I intended to do.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 ( 5 Jan 2022)

Clare Adamson: The First Minister has alluded to the huge challenges from omicron that countries across the globe face. In December, the Prime Minister of France, Jean Castex, described omicron as “spreading at lightning speed” when he introduced restrictions on citizens from outwith the European Union travelling to or through France. Post-Brexit, the UK is a third country in EU terms. What are the...

Scottish Parliament: Sexual Assault (Teenage Girls) (16 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: The prevention and eradication of violence against women is our shared goal, but while abuse persists, information, support and refuge for survivors remain vital. The joint Convention of Scottish Local Authorities and Scottish Women’s Aid guidance on good practice in commissioning specialist domestic abuse services stipulates that there is no statutory requirement to put domestic abuse...

Scottish Parliament: International Relationships (16 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: An integral part of fostering good relations is to build trust with international partners. The decision of the Home Office to force European Union citizens with pre-settled status to re-apply for their rights to live and work in the United Kingdom is therefore an affront and, potentially, yet another breach of the withdrawal agreement to which the UK Government signed up. What engagements...

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

Clare Adamson: As a member of the steel task force, which was, of course, a cross-party endeavour, I am aware how vital it was to save the jobs at the steel mills at Dalzell and Clydebridge. Steel making is synonymous with my constituency of Motherwell and Wishaw. What impact, if any, will the substance of the statement have on the on-going Liberty Steel operations at Dalzell and Clydebridge and the 140...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: We have talked a lot about the impact that the pandemic has had on our health service, but it is also impacting on other public services, such as our court system. What has the Scottish Government done to deal with the significant backlog of cases and ensure that our criminal justice system can start to clear that backlog?

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (14 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: I was lucky enough to be at Glencairn primary school in Motherwell in 2018 when the minister launched the deposit return scheme consultation. On that day, the pupils were showing their collective work on reducing plastic waste and eliminating single-use plastic in their school. As some of them will now be teenagers at the launch date, what is the Scottish Government doing to engage young...

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

Clare Adamson: We find ourselves in a situation in which we have an unclear path ahead in relation to ensuring that the voices of the Parliament and the Government will be heard in negotiations on the internal market and the EU-UK trade and co-operation agreement. How will the increase in the international and European relations budget ensure that Scotland’s voice is heard and that we have a say in the...

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Motherwell and Wishaw) ( 8 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what support is available to people in the Motherwell and Wishaw constituency who are in fuel poverty. (S6O-00501)

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Motherwell and Wishaw) ( 8 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: The United Kingdom energy market is, quite frankly, broken. We have some of the highest energy prices in Europe, and we have had some of the highest hikes in recent months. That broken market is evidenced by the fact that so many providers are going into administration, which is causing more stress for my constituents who are already worried about fuel poverty. What protections are in place...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Redress Scheme ( 8 Dec 2021)

Clare Adamson: I thank the Deputy First Minister for his statement—not just its content, marking the milestones of applications to Redress Scotland, but his reiteration of the all-important apology to victims of historical child abuse. What reassurance can he give historical child abuse victims that they will be treated with dignity, respect and compassion throughout the application process?

Scottish Parliament: Culture Strategy (Progress) (25 Nov 2021)

Clare Adamson: Can the cabinet secretary comment on the progress that is being made in embedding culture across portfolio areas to unlock the sector’s full potential?

Scottish Parliament: Weir & McQuiston (Administration) (18 Nov 2021)

Clare Adamson: The First Minister might be aware that Wishart-based, family-owned Weir & McQuiston (Scotland) Ltd entered administration this week. WMQ was one of Scotland’s leading mechanical and electrical contractors, and that is a devastating development for the owners and the 90 members of staff who are affected. What engagement has the Scottish Government had with administrators through partnership...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliament Website (18 Nov 2021)

Clare Adamson: 8. To ask the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body what action it has taken to assess the effectiveness and utility of the new Scottish Parliament website. (S6O-00414)
