Scottish Parliament: Europe Day 2023 and Alignment with European Union Laws ( 9 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: A recent British Council report “Soft Power Today” found that countries that invest in overseas cultural institutes see significant returns. Meanwhile, its report “Gauging International Perceptions: Scotland and Soft Power” found that “Scottish soft power is in a competitive position” but noted that “the challenges ... of Brexit will require Scotland to have a clearly...

Scottish Parliament: Governing Party (Transparency) ( 3 May 2023)

Clare Adamson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Illegal Migration Bill (25 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: Presiding Officer, “I am unable to make a statement that, in my view, the provisions of the Illegal Migration Bill are compatible with Convention rights, but the Government nevertheless wishes the House to proceed with the Bill.” That is a quote from the bill’s explanatory notes by Suella Braverman, the lead architect of the Illegal Migration Bill. Ms Braverman followed up in a letter...

Scottish Parliament: Damp Housing (20 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: I thank my colleague Foysol Choudhury for bringing this important debate to chamber. I begin by offering my condolences to Awaab Ishak’s family. They suffered an unimaginable tragedy in 2020. Awaab was two years old and he died needlessly. His death was wholly preventable. He was a poor bairn who was poorly served by public service, and that should be chilling to all of us in the chamber....

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (20 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: Prior to Brexit, which, of course, Scotland did not want, we had regulatory divergence, and this Parliament could be secure in legislating in devolved areas. The Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee has consistently raised concerns about the lack of transparency about the frameworks and the nature of the relationships between the Governments and how those are...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Section 35 Order (19 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: Cabinet secretary, post-Brexit, we have seen a dramatic shift to executive power decision making by the UK Government on devolved matters. The Sewel convention underpinning intergovernmental relations has been ignored nine times, and we now have the unprecedented use of a section 35 order in a devolved area of competence on a bill passed overwhelmingly by this chamber. UK Government ministers...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Section 35 Order (19 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: —executive power grab—

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Section 35 Order (19 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: —ride roughshod over this Parliament?

Scottish Parliament: Business Motions (19 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: Initially, my app was showing that I had not voted, but it has now recorded that vote. I confirm that I voted yes.

Scottish Parliament: Government Priorities for Scotland (18 Apr 2023)

Clare Adamson: Scotland can be proud of its global reputation as an open and outward-looking country, and the recent tartan week in New York was an incredible celebration of our nation on the world stage. That makes James Cleverly’s latest intervention on our overseas meetings seem all the more insecure and desperate. Scottish ministers have a clear responsibility to promote Scotland internationally. In...

Scottish Parliament: Long Covid (29 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: 3. To ask the Scottish Government how its cross-Government co-ordination of Covid recovery policies is addressing the needs of those affected by long Covid. (S6O-02065)

Scottish Parliament: Long Covid (29 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: One of my Motherwell and Wishaw constituents, who had a horrendous Covid experience and is suffering from long Covid, is unable to get back to work as a pilot due to hearing loss. He has had one cochlear implant fitted following Covid complications, but that does not meet the requirements for his profession. Current National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines, which are...

Scottish Parliament: Windsor Framework (23 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: 2. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what its initial assessment is of the potential impact of the Windsor framework on Scotland’s economy. (S6O-02054)

Scottish Parliament: Windsor Framework (23 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: I thank the minister for his answer, and I concur with his concerns over the Office for Budget Responsibility’s report. Can he give any comfort right now to Scottish businesses, which continue to suffer as a result of a damaging Tory hard Brexit? What comfort can he give them as they look across to Northern Ireland and see the advantages that Northern Ireland will have over Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Windsor Framework (Impact on Food and Drink) (15 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: 7. To ask the Scottish Government what its initial assessment is of the potential impact of the Windsor framework on the food and drink supply chain in Scotland. (S6O-02002)

Scottish Parliament: Windsor Framework (Impact on Food and Drink) (15 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: Indeed, Scotland is the only constituent nation of the UK to have had its vote on Brexit comprehensively ignored, threatening our food security in the process. Given NFU Scotland president Martin Kennedy’s description of what has been “significant and costly disruption to long-established trading arrangements between Scotland and Northern Ireland”, does the cabinet secretary agree that...

Scottish Parliament: International Women’s Day 2023 ( 8 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: International women’s day should be a day of celebration and empowerment. We take stock and mark the immense achievements of women in the face of systemic barriers to those achievements. However, I am not in a celebratory mood. Undoubtedly, there has been much progress, and the very notion that feminist ideals have become mainstream in our discourse is testament to that. In taking that...

Scottish Parliament: Northern Ireland Protocol Bill ( 1 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: 3. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on any engagement it has had with the United Kingdom Government regarding the potential impact on Scotland of the on-going negotiations over the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill. (S6O-01934)

Scottish Parliament: Northern Ireland Protocol Bill ( 1 Mar 2023)

Clare Adamson: If all is well and that goes through, we look forward to a return to horizon funding. However, can it be right that Scotland, which voted overwhelmingly to remain within the EU, has been ignored and is feeling the full force of a hard Brexit while Mr Sunak shamelessly boasts about the huge economic benefits that access to the EU single market will bring for Northern Ireland?

Scottish Parliament: Retail and Town Centres (28 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: Our colleague Graham Simpson mentioned Motherwell town centre. I also have Wishaw town centre in my constituency and, tomorrow, I will be cutting the ribbon on Trust Housing Association’s development there. The development is on what had been a gap site for almost 25 years, right in the middle of Wishaw town centre. It will provide new homes adjacent to local businesses and reinvigorate the...
