Clare Adamson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. My app would not refresh. I would have voted yes.

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (21 Sep 2023)

Scottish Parliament: Online Child Abuse, Grooming and Exploitation (21 Sep 2023)

Clare Adamson: As someone who works as an ambassador for the Internet Watch Foundation, I am glad that Pauline McNeill is raising its work here today.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Nature (20 Sep 2023)

Clare Adamson: This has been a very interesting debate. I have been schooled on private finance by the architects of the private finance initiative and on targets by a party whose Government has just abandoned its target to get to net zero. That said, there has been a lot of consensus about where we need to be. I particularly want to talk about peat bog restoration. That is something that is very close to...

What help might be available to those who find themselves in fuel poverty and unable to do that?

Scottish Parliament: Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre (Closure) (14 Sep 2023)

Clare Adamson: Does the First Minister share my dismay that Motherwell concert hall and theatre was closed with immediate effect until further notice due to the discovery of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete in the roof of the building? Of course, safety is absolutely paramount. Motherwell civic theatre and concert hall is a venue beloved by professional and amateur performers, not least the cast of...

Scottish Parliament: Single-use Vapes (Environmental Impact) (14 Sep 2023)

Clare Adamson: I, too, thank Gillian Mackay for securing the debate, and I thank members from across the chamber for their contributions, which have covered many aspects of the issue. I chair the cross-party group on accident prevention and safety awareness; I will try to limit myself to the work that we have done on those areas and I will highlight areas that have not been mentioned. The Child Accident...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Waiting Times (14 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: I am so disappointed this afternoon. I am disappointed because our health service has challenges—there is no doubt about that—but the Labour Party has brought to the chamber a debate that completely ignores the impact of the coronavirus on our NHS and it is attacking this Government while completely failing to point out the inadequacies of the Westminster Government, including the...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Waiting Times (14 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: No. I will not take any interventions. Those rules are in the control of Westminster—[ Interruption .]

Scottish Parliament: NHS Waiting Times (14 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: Westminster could have changed those pension rules. It is quite ready to come forward with section 35 orders on things that we want to do here.
