Scottish Parliament: Delayed Discharge (21 Sep 2023)

Anas Sarwar: ...and Social Care, Shona Robison, promised to end delayed discharge by the end of that year. So, can she tell members how many people have died while waiting to leave hospital, how many bed days have been lost and how much that has cost the taxpayer since she made that promise?

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (21 Sep 2023)

Shona Robison: NHS Scotland Assure has been going through all the buildings in the NHS, looking at applying the guidance from the Institution of Structural Engineers and making sure that there is then a risk rating for any buildings that need repair. However, no patients and no staff will be left in any dangerous building anywhere, and we should not suggest otherwise, because that worries people. I...

Scottish Parliament: Carer Support Payment (21 Sep 2023)

Roz McCall: I note the Deputy First Minister’s initial reply and her subsequent response of “Westminster bad”. However, I draw the focus back to Scotland and to reducing inequalities. The 2022-23 programme for government contained a promise to develop a payment for eligible 16 to 25-year-olds with care experience to provide security as they transition towards independent living. We are a year on...

Scottish Parliament: Net Zero Targets (Planning and Funding) (21 Sep 2023)

Shona Robison: I am aware that the Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero and Just Transition will answer an urgent question on that later today. The Prime Minister’s reckless plans have already been branded concerning by the Climate Change Committee, which judges that the plans are “likely to take the UK further away from being able to meet its legal commitments”. Business and consumer groups alike have...

Scottish Parliament: Cancer Research UK (Investment) (21 Sep 2023)

Rona Mackay: the University of Glasgow’s Garscube campus, in my constituency. The Beatson name is synonymous with cancer research in the west of Scotland, and the amazing work of the Beatson Institute has been life changing for many. What can the Deputy First Minister say about the significance of that investment, particularly for the west of Scotland, and the strengths in cancer research and life...

Scottish Parliament: Colleges (Finance) (21 Sep 2023)

Shona Robison: The future of skills is an absolutely critical area, which is why the Withers review is so important. The college sector will be vital in that regard. There have been challenges to public finances across all public bodies—no one is denying that—due to the United Kingdom Government’s austerity policy. We must therefore ensure that the college sector or any other sector can deliver within...

Scottish Parliament: Short-Term Lets Licensing Scheme (House Swaps) (21 Sep 2023)

Murdo Fraser: ...the Deputy First Minister herself wrote to councils in March that guidance would be produced around offering temporary exemptions for house swaps, but no record exists of such guidance ever having been published. Meanwhile, the Minister for Housing, who replied to the debate last week, seemed to be unaware of any of that. Can I get some clarity, please? Are house swaps to be excluded from...

Scottish Parliament: School Buildings Cancellations (21 Sep 2023)

Rhoda Grant: ...programme. Will the Deputy First Minister now make decisions about that fund, so that local authorities can build schools? Will she apologise to pupils, parents, teachers and communities that have been so badly affected?

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Mini-budget (Scottish Economy) (21 Sep 2023)

Shona Robison: ...that, the proposed tax cuts and the market reaction reduced any lingering credibility that the UK had in terms of economic management, which was already severely damaged by Brexit. That has now been followed by—the equivalent of that—Rishi Sunak on net zero, Liz Truss being the biggest cheerleader for the backsliding and reneging on those net zero targets. If ever there was an argument...

Jeremy Balfour: A constituent of mine who is a single mother with a short-term let property has been in touch with me this week.

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (21 Sep 2023)

Clare Adamson: ...tweak that ruinous Brexit, while ruling out a return to the European single market. He said that his priorities are economic growth and the opportunities and outcomes for young people that have been lost as a result of Brexit. Does the Deputy First Minister agree that the only way to get back the benefits of the European Union is for Scotland to be in the EU as an independent nation, back...

Scottish Parliament: World Rivers Day 2023 (21 Sep 2023)

Jackie Dunbar: ...have lived and worked along the River Don for centuries. We can still see the relics of Aberdeen’s industrial past and some of the better-known mills on the lower reaches of the Don. The river has been used as a power source to drive processes and machines for hundreds of years, which really developed in the 1700s when there were several mills along the river. Many became large concerns...

Scottish Parliament: Summit on Tackling Violence in Schools (21 Sep 2023)

Annie Wells: I thank the cabinet secretary for her answer. I welcome the fact that the first part of the summit has been held. However, it should have happened before the Scottish schools returned. During the debate that the cabinet secretary mentioned, the Scottish Conservatives also called for an action plan to tackle violence and disruption to be ready for the start of the new school year, a new...

Scottish Parliament: Learning Estate Investment Programme (21 Sep 2023)

Jenny Gilruth: I have to say to the member that the uncertainty has been caused not by this Government but by a Government elsewhere, as he well knows. The decisions that have been taken by that Government are impacting on our ability to spend capital in Scotland. He must take cognisance of that. Indeed, that was raised at First Minister’s questions earlier today. The issue around uncertainty more broadly...

Scottish Parliament: Universities (Assessment and Marking Backlogs) (21 Sep 2023)

Graeme Dey: complete outstanding marking and assessments, so that affected students can get their final awards and degree classifications. I thank students for their resilience during what has clearly been a difficult period. I also extend my thanks to all those people across the sector who have worked hard—and continue to do so—to minimise the impact on students.

Scottish Parliament: School Estate Improvement (Highland Council) (21 Sep 2023)

Kate Forbes: needs school and two primary schools, in Dunvegan and Beauly, all of which are in a dire state of disrepair. Will the Scottish Government be able to advise the council whether it has been successful on LEIP phase 3 funding?

Scottish Parliament: Digital Education (21 Sep 2023)

Jenny Gilruth: I am acutely aware of recent developments in artificial intelligence and cyber technology, and, in that context, the provision of high-quality digital education has never been more important. In the programme for government, we have committed to developing a new digital strategy to help ensure that digital provision supports the wider aims of the education system. The £13 million that was...

The Scottish recommended allowance will ensure that a...

Scottish Parliament: Online Child Abuse, Grooming and Exploitation (21 Sep 2023)

Audrey Nicoll: I am grateful that the Criminal Justice Committee has been given time to debate the issue of online child sexual exploitation. The committee has taken evidence on the issue on two occasions, and I thank all the witnesses who shared their expertise and knowledge with members. We heard about the increasing rate at which incidents of online child sexual exploitation are being reported and that...

Scottish Parliament: Net Zero Targets (United Kingdom Government Announcement) (21 Sep 2023)

Màiri McAllan: ...’s statement yesterday was an unforgivable betrayal of current and future generations and it has again put the United Kingdom Government on the wrong side of history. His reckless plans have been branded “shocking and really disappointing” by Al Gore and “hugely damaging” and “a colossal error” by business and consumer groups. However, I would like to be crystal clear that,...
