Such incidents are particularly prevalent in rural areas such as Dumfries and Galloway. There is a reversal agent for benzodiazepines called flumazenil, which I used when I worked in a perioperative department as a registered nurse. Will the minister provide an update on the...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink Sector (12 Sep 2023)

Rachael Hamilton: Of course Emma Harper continues to talk down her constituency in Dumfries and Galloway. The SNP would do better to support farmers and give them clarity about their future. SNP members would do better to realise the opportunities that have been afforded by trade deals and what we are able to do now that we have left the EU. I would like Emma Harper to go and ask her constituents whether the...

Fiona Hyslop: ...Government’s transport investment programme over the next 20 years. As detailed on page 41 of the review, there are clear recommendations for the A75.

Scottish Parliament: Community Energy Schemes (National Grid Access) ( 6 Sep 2023)

Emma Harper: I was pleased that the minister accepted my invitation to visit the Penpont community micro-hydro scheme in Dumfries and Galloway during recess. It is clear that such schemes are crucial in supporting our renewable energy output and providing green power at a local level. They are also crucial in our fight against the climate emergency. However, the UK Government seems unwilling to adopt...

Business of the House ( 6 Jul 2023)

David Mundell: ...that flowed from the aftermath of that horrendous incident. Will the Leader of the House bring forward a debate on local news provision across the UK?

New Railway Stations (Dumfries and Galloway)

Scottish Parliament: Highly Protected Marine Areas (29 Jun 2023)

Emma Harper: I welcome the announcement, which will certainly alleviate Galloway fishers’ concerns and will be welcomed by fishing communities across Dumfries and Galloway. As the Scottish Government continues its plans to enhance marine protections for the environment, can the cabinet secretary reiterate how the voices of fishers, such as those in Galloway, are at the centre of those discussions? Can...

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Jun 2023)

Deidre Brock: ...However, it is too much to expect apologies from all those who defended Johnson and kept him in his place. Unbelievably, the Secretary of State for Scotland, the right hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Jack), continues to support him, claiming he was not as unpopular in Scotland as was thought. The month before Johnson resigned as Prime Minister last year, an Ipsos MORI poll found...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Communities (Objection to Government Policy Proposals) ( 8 Jun 2023)

Emma Harper: ...and I welcome the commitment from the First Minister that no HPMAs will be imposed on communities that vehemently oppose them. However, I want to ensure that the voices of fishers in Dumfries and Galloway are listened to and that their concerns are taken into account. Can the cabinet secretary indicate how communities can make their voices known and ensure that any concerns or objections...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Opera (Orchestra) ( 7 Jun 2023)

Finlay Carson: ...s commitment in 2021-22 to remove fees for all pupils learning a musical instrument, data now shows that 92 per cent of pupils are missing out. Specifically in my constituency and in Dumfries and Galloway, the number of pupils learning a musical instrument has declined by almost 500; in at least one school in the constituency, music is no longer being offered as an in-school subject,...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Industry ( 7 Jun 2023)

Emma Harper: ....] This is really serious. When we talk about a just transition, we should be clear that the north-east is not the only place that will be affected. I have constituents and friends in Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders who work in the oil and gas sector, so a just transition must include the south of Scotland, too. More than that, a just transition means expanding renewable...

Scottish Parliament: Vulnerable Individual with Learning Difficulties ( 1 Jun 2023)

Oliver Mundell: I raise the plight of a vulnerable and deteriorating individual with severe learning difficulties who is in the care of Dumfries and Galloway Council but who has, for complex reasons, ended up trapped in a residential home in the south of England. For over a year, her sister has been desperately trying to get her back home closer to family and, at every turn, social work has deliberately...

Mairi Gougeon: ...of the 2023 UCI cycling world championships is for the event to demonstrate our nation’s natural beauty as well as a warm welcome. We can really look forward to seeing Perthshire, Dumfries and Galloway, Fife and Stirling featuring and showcasing all that Scotland has to offer to an unrivalled world audience. Many events, such as the road races and time trials, will be free to view. I...

Scottish Parliament: Commercial Forestry (Effect on Farming) (31 May 2023)

Emma Harper: I have been contacted by constituents in Dumfries and Galloway who have provided examples of forestry having been planted on prime agricultural land. Given the need to ensure food security in Scotland, and our proud agricultural history, does the cabinet secretary agree that following the right tree in the right place strategy is important? Will she set out whether the Scottish Government is...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Dentistry (31 May 2023)

Colin Smyth: continuing until 31 October and that a new payments regime will come into place—but that they are still choosing to withdraw from NHS provision? More than 20,000 patients in Dumfries and Galloway alone have been deregistered from the NHS recently. Why does the minister think that that is happening, if the new regime is going to solve the problems?

Scottish Parliament: Hospital at Home Programme (30 May 2023)

Finlay Carson: I appreciate the cabinet secretary giving way. Although many of us appreciate the importance of care at home, areas such as Dumfries and Galloway have a severe lack of nurses and help to deliver that care. There is still a role for cottage hospitals, and their value to communities was recognised by the First Minister in his previous role as the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care. Do...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Policy (25 May 2023)

Rachael Hamilton: farmers and crofters would send the message that their doing their jobs in producing top-quality, home-grown food for millions of people across the country and abroad is no longer good enough. A Galloway farmer pointed out that that conditionality suits the committees of the clean-fingered climate brigade and the forestry lobby, who are paid not to farm. It suits the new breed of...
