Scottish Parliament: Ministerial Appointments (30 Mar 2023)

Douglas Ross: ...than every before, yet he managed to appoint only one who did not support him in the leadership election. He squeaked a win and then forced the former Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy, Kate Forbes, and her supporters out of the Government in an act of petty revenge. Now, to shore up his position in his feuding party, he is back pushing independence, because it is the only...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Priorities (30 Mar 2023)

Elizabeth Smith: ...the magnitude of the fiscal gap” in the Scottish budget for the foreseeable future. How does the First Minister intend to address Scotland’s substantial fiscal deficit? Does he now accept that Kate Forbes was absolutely right when she said that current SNP policies simply will not cut it, because there has been a lack of focus on broadening the tax base and on economic growth?

Scottish Parliament: Ministers and Junior Ministers (30 Mar 2023)

Humza Yousaf: ...and to invest. We all recognise, and pay tribute to, the key role that he played in helping our vital supply chains at the height of the global pandemic. Meanwhile, as members will all have seen, Kate Forbes and I have spent quite a lot of time with each other in the past few weeks. Since the leadership contest ended, she and I have had some long chats about what contribution she could...

Scotland: Meeting with New First Minister - Question (29 Mar 2023)

Lord Offord of Garvel: First, I offer my congratulations to Humza Yousaf on his appointment as First Minister of Scotland, having won the SNP leadership contest on a very close 52%-48% result with Kate Forbes. On the Question, I know that the Secretary of State for Scotland and Prime Minister will be pleased to meet the First Minister in due course. Indeed, the UK Government remain committed to working...

Scottish Parliament: Businesses Based in Scotland (Reduction) (29 Mar 2023)

Daniel Johnson: T he reality is, as the figures show, that Scotland is the only part of the UK with declining business numbers. However, perhaps that is not surprising, given that Kate Forbes and Ivan McKee were overruled and forced to remove the very word “growth” from the national strategy for economic transformation—and now they themselves are removed, not just their words. Therefore, it is perhaps...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister (28 Mar 2023)

Douglas Ross: ...patients were seen at accident and emergency within the target times. That is down from 87 per cent, when he was given that most important of jobs within the Government. His fellow cabinet member, Kate Forbes, was absolutely right to be scathing about his record in government and, it turns out that almost half of the SNP members in the election agreed with her. Scotland needs a real...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Investment Zone in Scotland (27 Mar 2023)

Michael Gove: ...our approach that we had from Labour leaders of local government just last week. In contrast to that, I am afraid local government in Scotland has been let down by the SNP. It was a key feature of Kate Forbes’s leadership race that she said more powers should be devolved within Scotland, and I hope the new First Minister will take note.

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (23 Mar 2023)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...times that she has promised staff and sufferers that things would get better. In reality, Nicola Sturgeon quietly downgraded the office of mental health minister. Her finance department, headed by Kate Forbes, slashed £50 million from the mental health budget this winter and her health secretary, Humza Yousaf, give a personal promise to clear waiting lists for both children and adults by...

Scottish Parliament: Supporting Taxi Drivers (23 Mar 2023)

Pauline McNeill: ...session and have, like many other members, been working with them during this session, too, in lobbying Glasgow City Council and the current Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy, Kate Forbes, on their behalf. I believe that they were neglected throughout the pandemic and are being neglected now, with their concerns about the low emission zone that is being introduced in...

Scottish Parliament: Wellbeing Economy (22 Mar 2023)

Elizabeth Smith: ...a measure of economic success. The trouble is that the aspiration to build a wellbeing economy depends on our success in creating the growth and widening the tax base. I was very interested in what Kate Forbes said—and I think that she is absolutely correct—about that needing to be the urgent priority of the Scottish Government.

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Dentistry (16 Mar 2023)

Anas Sarwar: ...itself. It seems that the only things that are missing from the SNP leadership election are an Ash Regan press conference outside the Four Seasons and maybe a saltire-waving stop-the-steal rally by Kate Forbes outside Holyrood. Meanwhile, the machine candidate—the incompetent Humza Yousaf—is presiding over chaos in Scotland’s NHS. This morning, we heard a mother say on BBC Radio...

Scottish Parliament: Accident and Emergency Waits (Effect on Patient Mortality) (16 Mar 2023)

Paul O'Kane: ...the national health service to decline into such a state of perpetual crisis? Does she agree with clinicians, staff and patients—and indeed her Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy, Kate Forbes—that Humza Yousaf should not be anywhere near running our health service?

Scottish Parliament: Ferguson Marine (16 Mar 2023)

Neil Bibby: ...delays and even more millions—who will be surprised? This is a scandal manufactured by Scottish National Party ministers, and they all have their fingerprints on it—Humza Yousaf, John Swinney, Kate Forbes and Nicola Sturgeon, to name a few. After all that has gone wrong, it beggars belief that senior management handed themselves bonuses without anyone in the Scottish Government...

Scottish Parliament: Hospital Waiting Lists (15 Mar 2023)

Russell Findlay: Patients across Scotland agree with Kate Forbes on Humza Yousaf’s disastrous handling of Scotland’s NHS. Evidence of his incompetence was laid bare in a recent BBC “Disclosure” investigation, but medics say that they were banned from speaking to the BBC and that every mainland health board refused the BBC access to hospitals, despite that being routine elsewhere in the United Kingdom....

Scottish Parliament: NHS Golden Jubilee (Additional Capacity) (15 Mar 2023)

Sandesh Gulhane: The only grumbles that the cabinet secretary heard were from Kate Forbes yesterday. Increasing capacity requires staff to do the operations, so does the cabinet secretary welcome the UK Government’s removal of the lifetime limit for pensions and a 50 per cent increase to the annual limit, because that will allow senior consultants to come back to work to do extra? Will the cabinet secretary...

Scottish Government: Ultra Vires Expenditure - Question ( 9 Mar 2023)

Lord Reid of Cardowan: ...the Minister had a chance to look at this daft bottle deposit scheme? Given that all three candidates for the SNP leadership, whatever we may think of them, have criticised that scheme—indeed, Kate Forbes has described its effect on the British retail industry as “carnage”—are the Government intending to allow that to go through or are they waiting for the SNP to ditch yet another...

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioners (Recruitment Target) ( 9 Mar 2023)

Willie Rennie: I do not think that what the cabinet secretary has said is what Kate Forbes says. The minister has a sunny disposition, but he is spinning a bogus argument. According to Public Health Scotland estimates, the number of whole-time equivalent GPs—not the head count—fell by 26.4 between 2017 and 2022. The minister is making no progress; in fact, things are worse than when he started. Why is...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Party Leadership Contest ( 9 Mar 2023)

Douglas Ross: ...ears must have been burning as the candidates torched the SNP’s record in government. Let me be helpful to Nicola Sturgeon, as I try to be, and update her on what was said. Her finance secretary Kate Forbes said about Scotland that the trains never run on time, the police service is stretched to breaking point and there are record high waiting times in the NHS. Does the First Minister...
