Scottish Parliament: Ukraine Longer-term Resettlement Fund (23 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: The Scottish Government and local authorities have exceeded expectations by providing £200 million in this financial year to safely accommodate 23,000 displaced Ukrainians. It is clear, though, that to maintain the current level of support the United Kingdom Government must commit to funding, too. Will the Scottish Government continue to urge its Westminster counterparts not to slash the...

Scottish Parliament: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (23 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: I thank members of the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee, the committee clerks and all those who submitted evidence and attended meetings during our deliberations on this important bill. The bill is a profound concern. The committee believes, as a point of constitutional principle, in the simple, democratic imperative that the Scottish Parliament should have the...

Scottish Parliament: Marking One Year of War against Ukraine (23 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: No one in the chamber wanted to mark this milestone. It is one year since Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukrainian sovereignty. Although that anniversary is testament to the resilience of the Ukrainian people in the face of unprovoked barbarism, we wish we could be marking the end of the conflict. I have spoken many times on Ukraine in this Parliament, most recently in 2018, when we marked...

Scottish Parliament: Education Maintenance Allowance ( 9 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what action it has taken to promote uptake of the education maintenance allowance programme. (S6O-01894)

Scottish Parliament: Education Maintenance Allowance ( 9 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: I have been contacted by numerous constituents who have yet to receive feedback on applications that they submitted to North Lanarkshire Council in August. I believe that some applicants have left school as a result of not being able to maintain their education due to financial concerns. It concerns me that any young person is left without the vital support of the EMA. Is the cabinet...

Scottish Parliament: International Day of Women and Girls in Science ( 9 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: I wish to express my solidarity from the chamber with the women and girls throughout the world who are denied education—particularly the women in Iran at the moment. [ Applause .] We have been reflecting on anecdotes from when we were younger. I was not going to put this in my speech, but I will say it now. When I went into my first O grade physics class as the only girl in the class, the...

Scottish Parliament: Levelling Up Fund ( 7 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: A significant proportion of the so-called levelling up money seems to have gone to wealthier areas in England, including the Prime Minister’s constituency. Meanwhile, post-industrial areas like Ravenscraig, in my constituency, which have been betrayed for decades by Conservative Governments, continue to be overlooked. Does the minister share my belief that the situation represents a missed...

Scottish Parliament: ME Services ( 2 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: ME Services ( 2 Feb 2023)

Clare Adamson: I thank Donald Cameron for his contribution, and I am grateful for the other contributions today. Perhaps we also ought to remember that there are young people with ME, who are often missing out on educational opportunities and opportunities to take part in the activities that he has just been talking about. Does he agree that there needs to be a consistent approach to supporting young people...

Clare Adamson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit and Workers’ Rights (31 Jan 2023)

Clare Adamson: As it is the last day of January, I will quote from Robert Burns: “The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men Gang aft agley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promis’d joy!” The bard could have been writing about Brexit, which represents the biggest act of self-harm that politicians in Westminster have wrought on the UK. If only the leave campaign, the European research...

Clare Adamson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Budget 2023-24 (Committees’ Pre-budget Scrutiny) (26 Jan 2023)

Clare Adamson: I welcome the opportunity to speak on behalf of the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee. We focused our pre-budget scrutiny on the culture spending portfolio. I thank all those who attended our round tables and who submitted evidence to the committee. Although culture spend represents a relatively small proportion of the budget, the return on investment in culture,...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse Services (Guidance) (22 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what guidance is in place for local authorities commissioning domestic abuse services. (S6O-01725)

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse Services (Guidance) (22 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: I and other colleagues consistently raised concerns when North Lanarkshire Council tendered its domestic abuse services contract, contrary, in my opinion, to the COSLA-approved guidance. Despite the council’s stated commitment to continue partnership working, Women’s Aid groups continue to provide more specialist support than the new council service, but without local authority financial...

Scottish Parliament: Displaced Ukrainians (Funding) (15 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: To ask the First Minister for her response to the update from the United Kingdom Government’s Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities on the funding for displaced Ukrainians and the funding implications for Scotland’s public sector support.

Clare Adamson: 7. To ask the Scottish Government how it will support innovation and entrepreneurship in Scotland’s digital economy, including its games sector. (S6O-01690)

Scottish Parliament: Digital Economy (Support) (14 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: Changing misconceptions about the games sector is vital to unlocking its enormous potential. I was pleased to host the inaugural Scottish Games Week reception here in the Parliament. The games sector’s message is clear: through joined-up policy support, it has the potential to be transformative for Scotland’s digital and creative futures. Is the minister willing to engage with the...
