Ruth Maguire: I will not press amendment 88.

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

Ruth Maguire: I appreciate what Pam Gosal is saying, and I am listening to her carefully. Would she agree that even if not every person of faith needs such single-sex care, we have to listen to those who do?

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

Ruth Maguire: It might just be because it is late in the day, but Mr Whittle is surely not suggesting that he is the first person to draw attention to these issues.

Scottish Parliament: Business Motion (20 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Rather reluctantly, given what has happened over the past hour, I seek your guidance on scope. Colleagues from across the chamber have had amendments ruled out of scope for the reason that the bill relates to the process of applying for a gender recognition certificate, not to the effect of having a gender recognition certificate. That has left some of...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: I will speak to my amendments 35, 38 and 43 to 45, and in doing so I am thinking of victims of men’s violence—women in all their diversity. I will mention Anne, who wrote to me along with the other females who offered to share their experiences with the Equalities, Human Rights and Civil Justice Committee in order to explain the importance of single-sex spaces. Those spaces were important...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: We have to deal with the amendments before us. However, I share the member’s concerns. My amendments are about the perpetrators of domestic abuse. Individuals who carry out such abuse may be attracted to an easier-to-access GRC process, specifically as part of a pattern of coercion of an existing partner, or to aid concealment of their identity from new partners. Some may see adopting a...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: Will Maggie Chapman acknowledge that she is the only person in the chamber who is conflating trans people and criminals? She is the only person who has mentioned that. My amendments are about predatory men and are not about trans people.

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. It is unclear whether I connected. I would have voted no.

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Energy Consent Decisions) ( 1 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: 5. To ask the Scottish Government how citizens can influence energy consent planning decisions made under the section 36 application process. (S6O-01640)

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Energy Consent Decisions) ( 1 Dec 2022)

Ruth Maguire: I recently met constituents in Lylestone, who told me that they feel that they are in a David and Goliath-scale fight with a company that is proposing to build a large solar farm on farmland next to their village. They expressed worry and anger about the fact that the company concerned is acting as though the project is a foregone conclusion. I seek reassurance from the Scottish Government...

Scottish Parliament: Equally Safe Strategy (10 Nov 2022)

Ruth Maguire: In September, Thai and Chinese women who suffered a horrendous ordeal as they were prostituted in brothels across Glasgow saw justice as their traffickers were convicted in the High Court. I am sure that the minister will join me in commending the bravery of the women who testified against their abusers and the care and professionalism of those who supported them to do that, and in welcoming...

Scottish Parliament: National Planning Framework 4 ( 8 Nov 2022)

Ruth Maguire: The Ardeer peninsula is marked out in NPF4 as “a significant site for redevelopment”. With the special development order still in place, there remain concerns locally about the potential impact of development free from the usual planning restrictions. Can the minister provide an update on the commencement of provisions to deal with SDOs, and can he assure my constituents that...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Oct 2022)

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Oct 2022)

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Oct 2022)

Ruth Maguire: When the committee was carrying out its scrutiny, did it find out how many people are, under the current system, which is being done away with, refused a GRC and what the reasons are for those refusals?

Scottish Parliament: Greyhound Racing ( 6 Oct 2022)

Ruth Maguire: I congratulate Mark Ruskell on securing cross-party support for his motion—support from all parties is, indeed, a fine thing—to allow the debate to go ahead. I recognise all the work that he does for animal welfare and for greyhounds, in particular. It is a pleasure to make a brief contribution, and I am happy to speak in support of the motion. I agree with the Scottish Animal Welfare...

Scottish Parliament: “A New Deal for Tenants” (Mobile Home Residents) ( 6 Oct 2022)

Ruth Maguire: Pitch fees for my Cunninghame South constituents who live on mobile sites rise by a maximum of the retail prices index annually. The gap between RPI and the consumer prices index is increasing, with the cost of pitch fees growing faster than pension incomes. Will the Scottish Government address that by basing uprating on CPI?

Scottish Parliament: Ardeer Girls (22 Sep 2022)

Ruth Maguire: I am honoured to bring this debate to the chamber today, in order—I hope—to continue the good work of playwright Jack Dickson in highlighting the injustice as told in “The Girls of Cartridge Hut No 7”. I thank colleagues from across the chamber who supported the motion, thereby allowing us to take the girls’ story to the floor of the Scottish Parliament, as well as members who are...

Scottish Parliament: Children in Temporary Accommodation ( 7 Sep 2022)

Scottish Parliament: Children in Temporary Accommodation ( 7 Sep 2022)

Ruth Maguire: Empty properties that are left in disrepair are a blight on neighbourhoods and could provide much-needed homes to families and children on waiting lists. Will the cabinet secretary provide an update on the progress on compulsory sales orders? Will the Scottish Government consider the proposal for compulsory rental orders?
