Scottish Parliament: NHS Waiting Times (14 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: What about the immigration system? What about the hostile environment that makes it less attractive for people to come here? Brexit has in itself made people think twice about coming to the United Kingdom. However, I have spoken already in the chamber and I will speak again about the plight of Sudanese health workers who have gone home or who were in Sudan at the time of the conflict and have...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Waiting Times (14 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: I am not going to take any interventions—sorry. [ Interruption .] Craig Hoy rose— I have just a very short time for my speech this afternoon. [ Interruption .]

Scottish Parliament: NHS Waiting Times (14 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: I understand Labour’s concerns. I think that we all understand the concerns for our NHS. However, it is simply not possible to ignore what Labour’s own ministers have said or the concerns that they have raised, including the Minister for Health and Social Services in the Welsh Government, Eluned Morgan, who recently blamed chronic underfunding by the UK Government for making the...

Scottish Parliament: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill ( 8 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: The cabinet secretary has covered much of the background and timescales to the supplementary legislative consent memorandum, so I will focus my remarks on the three areas covered by the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee’s report: the sunset, revocation schedule and preservation powers; the powers to restate, revoke, replace and update retained EU law; and the...

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme ( 7 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: The common frameworks that were agreed between the UK Government and the devolved legislatures of the UK were the mechanism by which constructive engagement would facilitate regulatory divergence and respect the devolution process. By invoking the UK Internal Market Act 2020 on the deposit return scheme, has the UK Government irrevocably damaged the frameworks process?

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme ( 6 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: The UK Government has shown nothing but contempt for the Scottish Parliament in using the United Kingdom Internal Market Act 2020 to, in effect, rewrite devolved laws. As Professor Aileen McHarg has suggested, there is nothing in the 2020 act that makes Alister Jack the arbiter of what goes forward. This should have been done through the common frameworks. How much investment from Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Women and Girls in STEM ( 1 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: I congratulate Audrey Nicoll on securing this debate on increasing the participation of women and girls in science, technology, engineering and maths. It will be no surprise to members that the topic is close to my heart. However, the irony is not lost on me that I stand here as one of those in the “leaky pipeline” that is highlighted in the motion, has been referenced by many speakers in...

Scottish Parliament: Women and Girls in STEM ( 1 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: My colleague Evelyn Tweed mentioned some of the challenges that schools have in tackling some of the issues. Will the minister reflect on the work of Toni Scullion, the young teacher who founded dressCode—a specific coding club for girls that has now been rolled out with industry across Scotland—as an exemplar of how STEM can be brought into our schools? I will certainly share the...

Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence ( 1 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: It always indicates that I will be in my element in the chamber when a debate brings to mind my scientific hero Richard Feynman, who won a Nobel prize for his work on quantum mechanics. When Daniel Johnson spoke about computers earlier, I was reminded that Richard Feynman referred to them as glorified accounts clerks. Richard Feynman took a dim view of whether we would reach sentient AI,...

Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence ( 1 Jun 2023)

Clare Adamson: I am sorry, Presiding Officer; we were told that there was time in hand. On that note, I shall end. What a wonderful and enlightening debate it has been.

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (30 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: The Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee report on the United Kingdom Internal Market Act 2020 noted that common frameworks agreed with the UK Government could “resolve the tensions within the devolved settlement through managing regulatory divergence on a consensual basis”. What is the impact on the workings of common frameworks if the UK Secretary of State for...

Scottish Parliament: Sudanese Community in Scotland (Support) (25 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: 2. To ask the Scottish Government how it can support the Sudanese community living in Scotland, in light of the on-going humanitarian crisis in Sudan. (S6O-02285)

Scottish Parliament: Sudanese Community in Scotland (Support) (25 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: It would be helpful if some of those signposting bits of information could be shared with colleagues, as the situation is on-going. In my role as committee convener, I met Sudanese health workers online from across the UK, from senior staff and senior consultants to nurses and support services staff in our NHS, each a vital cog in making our NHS work. Some of their colleagues who work for the...

Scottish Parliament: Sudanese Community in Scotland (Support) (25 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: Those people are vital workers in our communities. Can the cabinet secretary make representations to the Home Office about the situation?

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (23 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: Creating the DRS is a democratic decision that was made by this Parliament. The Tory Government at Westminster has torn up the common frameworks that were intended to protect devolution and regulatory divergence. The common frameworks were developed in conjunction with the devolved legislatures of the UK, and they permit regulatory divergence. They include a dispute resolution section that,...

Scottish Parliament: Modern Apprenticeships (Motherwell and Wishaw) (18 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to promote modern apprenticeships to constituents in Motherwell and Wishaw. (S6O-02248)

Scottish Parliament: Modern Apprenticeships (Motherwell and Wishaw) (18 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: Today, I was delighted to attend the skills demonstration outside the Parliament that was hosted by the Scottish Traditional Building Forum, where I tried my hand at some slate cutting. I do not think that it is something that I see in my future, but seeing young people engaging in those endeavours was very exciting. I understand that the initiative has not yet been rolled out across the...

Scottish Parliament: Bus Travel (National Entitlement Card Scheme) (11 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: 6. To ask the Scottish Government what action it has taken to promote free bus travel through the national entitlement card scheme, particularly among people with a qualifying social security entitlement. (S6O-02225)

Scottish Parliament: Bus Travel (National Entitlement Card Scheme) (11 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: Support for people who qualify for social security entitlement, particularly disabled people, is vital. That cover also extends to a carer in receipt of free bus travel where it is required. Has the Government made any representations to the Department for Work and Pensions regarding the fact that many people transferring on to adult disability payment from personal independence payment seem...

Scottish Parliament: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning (Holiday Homes) (11 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: Following the tragic death of Jaime Carsi in Majorca, due to a suspected carbon monoxide leak in a holiday home, I know that members’ thoughts and condolences will be with Mr Carsi’s friends and loved ones—especially his wife, who is now recovering. The dangers of carbon monoxide are frequently a subject for the cross-party group on accident prevention and safety awareness. Regulations...
