Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

James Kelly: Boris Johnson should resign as Prime Minister. His position is untenable, and he has treated the public, the courts and Parliament with utter contempt. Does the First Minister agree that we should send out a search party for the Secretary of State for Scotland, Alister Jack, who has been posted missing since he took office and is nothing more than a puppet for the lawless activities of the...

Scottish Parliament: Common Frameworks (24 Sep 2019)

James Kelly: ...Another feature of the debate has been the lack of progress around the JMC, and indeed the lack of progress in finding solutions to the common frameworks issue. Progress has slowed even more since Boris Johnson became Prime Minister. I appreciate that these are hectic political times, but common frameworks do not seem to have been a priority for the UK Government. To sum up, there are...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

James Kelly: reject it. I was surprised to hear Donald Cameron defend the suspension of Parliament. As Alex Rowley quite rightly said, it is really an attempt to shut down democracy and close down debate. Boris Johnson and his cohorts realise that they do not have the votes or the support in Parliament for a no-deal Brexit, so they have tried to shut down the operation as much as possible to get to...

Scottish Parliament: Glasgow City Council (Funding for No-deal Brexit) (21 May 2019)

James Kelly: Given the interest in the Conservative Party around Boris Johnson’s candidacy for leader and therefore, were he to be successful, prime minister, the prospect of the no-deal Brexit that none of us wants is increasing. Therefore, it is unacceptable that none of the £92 million made available to the Scottish Government has been made available to Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, to deal...

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (5 Nov 2014)

James Kelly: ...the Scottish Government is unable to do and pledge that all its subcontractors will be paid the living wage. Why are the SNP and the Scottish Government so timid on this issue while people like Boris Johnson are able to be more committed on the living wage? If Angela Constance is serious about it, she should do something about it using the powers in her remit. Angela Constance is one of...

Scottish Parliament: Procurement Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (13 May 2014)

James Kelly: give cleaners and care home staff from Cambuslang to Carnoustie a fair deal. The living wage is delivered in London, yet here in Scotland we are dragging our heels on the bill. Why is it that Boris Johnson can be so bold yet Nicola Sturgeon is so timid? Nicola Sturgeon’s amendments reflect the fact that the Scottish National Party has moved its position from stage 1, when there was...

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (23 Apr 2014)

James Kelly: Never mind the case law—I will give practical examples. What about the care contracts at Renfrewshire Council, which is paying the living wage? What about the contracts in Islington? Even Boris Johnson can ensure that his contracts pay the living wage. Who would have believed that Nicola Sturgeon would be outflanked on the left by Boris Johnson? It is time that we closed the low-pay...
