Scottish Parliament: Secondary Education (Vocational and Technical Qualifications) (21 Mar 2023)

Ruth Maguire: It is a pleasure to speak to the Government’s motion today and to recognise the success of the education system in Scotland—not for self-congratulation but in gratitude to teachers and staff, and to pupils, their parents and their families. It is a fact that a record number of our young people are now in work, training or further study after leaving school. In 2021-22, 95.7 per cent of...

Scottish Parliament: Deaths of Children from Illegal Drug Use (Support for Families) (16 Mar 2023)

Ruth Maguire: Grace Handling was 13 when she died. The individual who supplied the ecstasy that killed her was charged with culpable homicide but was, much to her family’s distress, acquitted after the jury returned a not proven verdict. Will the cabinet secretary meet me and Grace’s father Stewart to hear directly from him and to provide support and guidance on ways forward?

Scottish Parliament: Gender-specific Risk and Safety Planning (Ukrainian Refugees) ( 1 Mar 2023)

Ruth Maguire: We know that, once trafficking happens, it is very difficult to recover victims of trafficking. Last week, the cross-party group on human trafficking heard from experts that the risks that increase people’s vulnerability include insecure accommodation, relationship breakdown and complacency from authorities. In saying that, it was putting a challenge to all of us. Does the minister agree...

Scottish Parliament: A9 Dualling (22 Feb 2023)

Ruth Maguire: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: A9 Dualling (22 Feb 2023)

Ruth Maguire: The member mentioned the people of the Highlands and Islands. I wonder whether he agrees with me that they would probably prefer him to focus on the issues and not on personalities.

Scottish Parliament: Women Murdered by Partner or Ex-partner ( 9 Feb 2023)

Ruth Maguire: 1. To ask the Scottish Government, of the recorded homicide figures in 2021-22, what percentage of women murdered were killed by a partner or ex-partner. (S6O-01892)

Scottish Parliament: Women Murdered by Partner or Ex-partner ( 9 Feb 2023)

Ruth Maguire: I welcome the Scottish Government’s commitment to domestic homicide reviews. Can the cabinet secretary give a bit more of an update on progress on that model? Is there scope for widening it or looking at a similar type of process where a victim of domestic abuse who is known to services loses her life prematurely but no charges are brought?

Scottish Parliament: Business Motions (31 Jan 2023)

Ruth Maguire: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. My app failed. I would have voted no.

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (31 Jan 2023)

Ruth Maguire: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I am having connectivity issues. I would have voted no.

Ruth Maguire: 7. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to address fuel poverty in North Ayrshire. (S6O-01794)

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (North Ayrshire) (19 Jan 2023)

Ruth Maguire: I have constituents in housing association properties that require work to make them more energy efficient. The landlord tells me that it has no funds for capital improvements. My constituents’ wages are stagnant and all their bills are going up year on year, including rent, which has seen a rise of 7 per cent this year. What guidance can the cabinet secretary give on what funding is...

Scottish Parliament: National Planning Framework 4 (11 Jan 2023)

Ruth Maguire: As the minister said in opening, planning is not just about place but about people. The final national planning framework 4 makes it clear that Scotland will not compromise on the climate crisis and empowering communities. Although the document and this debate might not get much public attention, NPF4 is really important to how we live, work and play. It is a plan for the type of Scotland...

Scottish Parliament: National Planning Framework 4 (11 Jan 2023)

Ruth Maguire: Absolutely. There is huge potential in that, and I welcome it. NPF4 facilitates active travel infrastructure, low-carbon transport and more green spaces, which is good news for the nation’s health and wellbeing. We know that opportunities to be outdoors and active not only have a restorative impact on those with existing physical and mental health issues but can prevent ill health in the...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: I listened carefully to the member’s answer to Graham Simpson. He seemed to say that there is no difference between the 2004 act and this bill in relation to evidence. However, there is a major difference in that people would have had a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. I appreciate that we do not wish to have that requirement in the future, but does that not mean that the evidence that will...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: That is not the point that I was making.

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: I just wanted to be clear that I was not making a point about self-identification itself; I was just pointing out the difference between the two systems and asking what evidence would be accepted as proof. People might have a concern that folk will be wrongly accused. I get that prosecution is the business of the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, but law is our business and we need...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: The member mentioned the importance of service providers knowing the law. Does she agree that it is also important that funders know what service providers are and are not allowed to provide?
