Scottish Parliament: Crohn’s Disease and Colitis (Awareness Campaign) ( 7 Dec 2023)

Clare Adamson: 4. To ask the First Minister what action the Scottish Government is taking to ensure that its recent Crohn’s and colitis awareness campaign is reaching deprived and marginalised communities, in light of Crohn’s and colitis awareness week this week. (S6F-02609)

Scottish Parliament: Crohn’s Disease and Colitis (Awareness Campaign) ( 7 Dec 2023)

Clare Adamson: Delays to diagnosis affect people’s ability to continue in education and work, limit their treatment options and increase their risk of being hospitalised or needing emergency surgery. Recognising the symptoms of lower gastrointestinal conditions, which are stigmatised and widely misunderstood, is crucial. What action will the Scottish Government take to improve awareness of the symptoms of...

Scottish Parliament: Vulnerable People in the Justice System (Support) ( 6 Dec 2023)

Clare Adamson: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what support is available for people in contact with the justice system who may be dealing with vulnerabilities such as mental health issues, problematic substance use or homelessness. (S6O-02839)

Scottish Parliament: Vulnerable People in the Justice System (Support) ( 6 Dec 2023)

Clare Adamson: The distress brief intervention initiative, which was successfully piloted in Lanarkshire, provides quick and compassionate support to people who are experiencing distress. How will the Scottish Government ensure that DBI services are integrated into communities and that Police Scotland and other public bodies are trained to direct people to distress brief intervention where it might be...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance Support Schemes (22 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: 5. To ask the Scottish Government how it is ensuring that local government finance support schemes are operating effectively. (S6O-02761)

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance Support Schemes (22 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: I have been helping a number of my constituents regarding the dual housing support scheme, which supports people to go into rehabilitation, and the discretionary housing payment, which mitigates the Tories’ bedroom tax. Those are excellent examples of the Scottish Government putting cash into the hands of the most vulnerable at the most difficult of times, in marked contrast to...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Ministerial Code (First Minister and Deputy First Minister) (15 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: I would like to start with a quote—I was actually a bit worried earlier, because a lot of what was in my speech was used by Alex Cole-Hamilton in his speech. The quote is from Nicola Sturgeon at around the start of the Covid crisis. She said: “I understand, because I’m First Minister leading a government, how difficult and unprecedented this situation is. We’re all trying to make the...

Scottish Parliament: Renters (Support) ( 9 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: No.

Scottish Parliament: Firework Safety (Public Awareness) ( 2 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: 4. To ask the First Minister what steps the Scottish Government is taking to increase public awareness of firework safety ahead of bonfire night. (S6F-02498)

Scottish Parliament: Firework Safety (Public Awareness) ( 2 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: Recent data from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service shows that the number of deliberate fires in the three weeks up to 5 November has fallen by 30 per cent since 2018, to 907 last year. That is very welcome news but, every year, our emergency workers are subjected to immense pressure due to the misuse of fireworks, which is compounded by antisocial behaviour. Does the First Minister agree...

Scottish Parliament: Access to Public Transport (Motherwell and Wishaw) ( 2 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what action it has taken to improve access to public transport for people in the Motherwell and Wishaw constituency. (S6O-02668)

Scottish Parliament: Access to Public Transport (Motherwell and Wishaw) ( 2 Nov 2023)

Clare Adamson: Those measures are very welcome in my constituency, especially our wonderful new station. At surgeries, I frequently come across constituents who are suffering from the effects of an austerity-driven cost of living crisis, including many people with disabilities who have not accessed free bus travel even though they are entitled to do so. Will the minister advise how we can better raise...

Scottish Parliament: Video Games Technology (Education and Skills Development) (26 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the potential role of emerging video games technology in education and skills development. (S6O-02634)

Scottish Parliament: Video Games Technology (Education and Skills Development) (26 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: Next week is the second annual Scottish games week. I urge colleagues to attend events at Dynamic Earth and Michael Marra’s event in the Parliament, and to speak in my members’ business debate. The cultural, social and commercial value of the games sector is staggering. We need to embed the sector in public policy, because video games are used in so many instances, including in colleges...

Scottish Parliament: Culture Sector (25 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: I am going to say that this is a very reasonable motion—up to a point. It is very reasonable that, across the chamber, we are collectively recognising, through many local examples, the great contribution that arts and culture bring to Scotland’s life. It is reasonable to note the £4.5 billion of value to our economy and the 80,000 jobs that the arts and culture sector supports. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Culture Sector (25 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: The cabinet secretary came to our committee and explained what the pressures have been in-year on the Scottish Government’s budget. He explained the settlements for pay across different portfolio areas. He talked about increased costs as a result of Liz Truss’s trashing of our economy and the impact that that has had on all organisations. I remind members that we are the only place in the...

Scottish Parliament: Gaza and Israel (24 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: I add my best wishes to the First Minister at this incredibly difficult time for him and to anyone caught up in this conflict. What I want to take from the chamber today is the word “unity”. Despite the divisions and polarisation that surround such debates, we have seen unity in grief for those who have lost their lives, unity in hope that those still being held hostage will be safely...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliament Powers ( 3 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliament Powers ( 3 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliament Powers ( 3 Oct 2023)

Clare Adamson: I am delighted to be speaking in the debate, because it gets to the heart of why I am here, the heart of this place and the heart of our democracy. I am really concerned that we have heard the debate dismissed as being about “grievance”; as irrelevant; as not current; and as somehow a waste of our Parliament’s time. In fact, it has been the bread and butter of my committee’s work...
