Scottish Parliament: Health Inequalities (Report) (14 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: I thank the convener and members of the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee for the deliberations that are contained in its informative and challenging report. The subject of the debate is relevant to us all, as Gillian Martin so rightly points out. It is relevant to all areas of life, all areas of government, and all areas of parliamentary scrutiny. I will reflect on the work that the...

Scottish Parliament: Health Inequalities (Report) (14 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: Will the minister take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Health Inequalities (Report) (14 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: Does the minister agree with the United Nations poverty expert Philip Alston, who compared the Conservative Party’s welfare policies to the creation of 19th century workhouses, and warned that unless austerity is ended the UK’s poorest people face lives that are “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short”?

Scottish Parliament: Asylum Seekers (Support) ( 8 Dec 2022)

Clare Adamson: I thank Bob Doris for securing the debate this afternoon. I apologise to Parliament—if the debate is still going at half past one, I am afraid that I will have to leave at that time. I thank the Presiding Officer for the permission to do so. It would be remiss of me not to mention Glasgow’s refugee Councillor Roza Salih, whom the BBC named one of the most influential women of 2022. Roza...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (30 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. My app would not connect. I would have voted no.

Scottish Parliament: Preplanned Funerals (Company Bankruptcies) (24 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: Following United Kingdom regulations for funeral-planning companies being adopted by the Financial Conduct Authority, a number of companies have gone into administration, including Safe Hands Funeral Plans and One Life Funeral Planning. Some of my constituents are worried about whether they will get any of their money back. Research shows that such savings schemes are overwhelmingly used by...

Clare Adamson: 8. To ask the Scottish Government what support is in place to help tackle fuel poverty in the Motherwell and Wishaw constituency, including for people with pre-payment meters who are worried about rising energy costs. (S6O-01596)

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Motherwell and Wishaw) (24 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: At a recent cost of living event, which Marion Fellows MP and I hosted in the constituency, Citizens Advice Scotland advisers raised a concern with us that an anomaly seems to exist with regards to people on universal credit who get their money paid directly in housing benefit to their landlords: they sometimes will not receive a monthly cash transfer into their bank accounts and are excluded...

Scottish Parliament: National Drugs Mission (24 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: Earlier this week, my staff and I attended Recovery Scotland’s inaugural football competition in Motherwell. It brought together organisations that work to support individuals and it celebrated people who are on the recovery journey and who took part in the tournament. More than 70 people took part and the event brought the community together with people who are on that recovery journey. It...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (24 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I was unable to get the app to work. I would have voted yes.

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Devolution) (17 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: First, I thank the committee clerks, our advisers and all those who gave evidence and submissions to our inquiry for their interest and support. “There shall be a Scottish Parliament.” Six simple words, but almost exactly 24 years ago, the Scotland Act 1998, the statutory underpinning of our Scottish Parliament, became law. First lines of legislation are seldom memorable, but I would...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Devolution) (17 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: I suggest that it is not. The examples were in the evidence that was given to the committee, so I refer him to that evidence. The situation is extremely fast moving and, as we are considering these issues, other things are put on the table, such as the Northern Irish Protocol Bill. Although technical, it lays out the challenges that we might face. The Northern Irish protocol, which was...

Scottish Parliament: Points of Order (16 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. In Mr Kerr’s point of order, he seemed to indicate that tomorrow’s debate on Brexit is a Government debate. I want to inform you and members in the chamber that it is a Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee debate, giving the committee an opportunity to air its concerns about Brexit from its most recent report.

Scottish Parliament: Ukraine Longer-term Resettlement Fund (16 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: I thank the minister for visiting the Gowkthrapple flats in my constituency, where he saw the work that is being done. It is important for people to understand that Ukrainian families have a Scottish secure tenancy, with the same rights as other residents and tenants who come to live in those areas. Will the minister give comfort to people who may be reluctant to move or for whom the process...

Scottish Parliament: Gaelic and Scots (15 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: I am a North Lanarkshire resident, and I was a councillor there from 2007 until 2011. As such, I was very familiar with the Gaelic-medium education schools in the area. The delivery model there has been so successful in nurturing Gaelic in my community, and I was glad to hear Jim Fairlie mention Gaelic-medium education in his speech. A few years ago, I was delighted to visit Islay and meet...

Scottish Parliament: Gaelic and Scots (15 Nov 2022)

Clare Adamson: I will make a peedie intervention, Presiding Officer. I mentioned Hamish Henderson in my speech. Martin Whitfield talked about technology, so does he agree that the fact that we have archives of the spoken word and storytelling in the voices of the people is important in working towards securing the future of both languages?

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (26 Oct 2022)

Clare Adamson: Can the member explain to me where in the Scotland Act 1998 action on windfall taxes and energy companies is in the gift of the Scottish Government?

Scottish Parliament: Suicide Prevention (26 Oct 2022)

Clare Adamson: The Scottish mental illness stigma study commissioned by See Me Scotland found that stigma around mental illness remains pervasive in daily life. Stigma has been identified as a significant factor in suicide. With that in mind, how will the Scottish Government place greater emphasis on the impact of stigma in relation to mental health as part of its new suicide prevention strategy?
