Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Scotland’s Economy) (14 Nov 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: The Brexit deal will be devastating for Scotland—not least, in my constituency, which receives tens of millions of pounds in EU funding to help small businesses to grow, to support people who are in poverty and to tackle unemployment. Does the cabinet secretary agree that any replacement of that vital funding must have input from people in Scotland? How is the Government facilitating that...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: It is an honour to speak today to represent directly the views, wishes and concerns of EU citizens in my constituency. Since the Brexit vote in June 2016, the SNP Government has been unwavering in its commitment to EU citizens, who have honoured this country by choosing to live, work and raise families here. The message to them is clear and simple: you are welcome and we want you to stay. As...

Scottish Parliament: Family Migration (17 Sep 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ...the UK had “One of the most restrictive and expensive paths to settle permanently and become UK citizens”. As Patrick Harvie said, we should remember that that research was compiled before the Brexit vote occurred. Given the rhetoric that we hear on leaving the EU, I cannot imagine the policies becoming any more open in the foreseeable future. Just last year, we saw the UK...

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

Fulton MacGregor: ...with horror as that became a possibility, then a likelihood and now, with only a matter of weeks remaining, a real and present danger to our country. As others have said before me today, a no-deal Brexit is unthinkable—it would have catastrophic economic and social effects. That is widely accepted by people, whether, like me, they voted to remain or they voted to leave. Leave voters to...

Scottish Parliament: Exports (22 May 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ...recent food and drink statistics that put the value of Scotland’s industry exports at more than £6 billion. Does the Scottish Government agree that that progress in growth is put at risk by the Brexit that both the Tories and the Labour Party are pursuing?

Scottish Parliament: Green New Deal (24 Apr 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ...energy and tourism—are reliant on Scotland’s natural resources. We must therefore ensure that protective measures are in place and that our rural economy is safeguarded. There is consensus that Brexit is one of the main threats to our rural economy at the moment. We also know that our industrial sector accounts for more than half our exports and sustains a significant number of...

Scottish Parliament: NHS and Social Care Staff (Workplace Support) (3 Apr 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ...services. In particular, I pay tribute to EU workers. I am not sure why Conservative members, who were keen to lodge a motion about the health of workers, are resisting mention of the impact of Brexit on EU workers, who are going through a torrid time just now. Having to work in such circumstances is impacting those workers’ health. As the cabinet secretary said, the Health and Care...

Scottish Parliament: Year of Young People 2018 (13 Mar 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ...pointed out, to continue to prioritise and fund youth work across the country and follow the Scottish Government’s lead on the matter, In concluding, it would be remiss of me not to mention the Brexit chaos that is unfolding and to ask where the young people’s voices are in all of it. After all, it is about their future. As for the young people who are also European Union citizens or...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Discussions with Businesses) (6 Mar 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with businesses regarding the potential economic impact of Brexit. (S5O-02943)

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Discussions with Businesses) (6 Mar 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ...the lack of engagement from the United Kingdom Government. Is there any evidence that the views of Scotland’s businesses have been heeded by the UK Government or, as with most things related to Brexit, have the Tories run roughshod over those views in favour of keeping their party together?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Discussions with United Kingdom Government) (30 Jan 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: 7. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on its discussions with the United Kingdom Government regarding Brexit. (S5O-02825)

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future Economy (16 Jan 2019)

Fulton MacGregor: ..., I welcome the opportunity to debate this issue, and I commend the Government amendment to the chamber. Both the motion and the amendment raise important issues, and I will put a bit of focus on Brexit. Despite the people of Scotland voting overwhelmingly to reject Brexit, we are seeing our country and its businesses being affected in a most damaging way by what has gone on since the...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens (Contribution to Scotland) (19 Dec 2018)

Fulton MacGregor: ...every EU national in the constituency to let them know the date of the surgery and that I am here to support them. I took those steps because it became very clear to me through case work that the Brexit vote and the current discussions—if we can call them that—have caused a lot of concern among EU nationals who call Scotland their home. The event was very well attended. Normally, that...

Scottish Parliament: Demonstrating Leadership in Human Rights (13 Dec 2018)

Fulton MacGregor: ..., regardless of which country they are adopted from—no ifs, no buts. All children and young people in Scotland deserve the same higher education opportunities. I will comment on the impact of Brexit on human rights and particularly on EU citizens. My office invited every EU national living in Coatbridge and Chryston to a constituency surgery last Friday. It was an extremely busy...

Fulton MacGregor: Does the cabinet secretary agree that the biggest threat to the NHS workforce is the danger that Brexit poses to the staffing of Scotland’s NHS, as reported in the new survey of European Economic Area doctors by the British Medical Association?

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Waiting Times) (9 May 2018)

Fulton MacGregor: ...what I perceived to be attacks from both Labour and Tory politicians. That is not because I want us to have agency staff per se, but because I realise that, with health staff leaving in the face of Brexit and other factors, such as the UK Government’s austerity policy, there is a reality about how we meet the needs of the service and I recognise that when agency staff are there, they do...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Financial Accountability) (2 May 2018)

Fulton MacGregor: Has Brian Whittle given any thought to, or made any assessment of, how Brexit and his party’s budget, which has reduced funds to the public sector, could affect the workforce in the NHS?

Scottish Parliament: United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (21 Mar 2018)

Fulton MacGregor: ...topic to be brought to the chamber today. It is worth putting on record my disappointment that the time for the debate has been brought forward. I know that needs must, given the impact of Brexit on everything, but I also know that the number of people who spoke to me about this debate prior to the change in the timing is not reflected by the number of people currently in the chamber. I...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (7 Mar 2018)

Fulton MacGregor: ...fight for the best possible outcome for our constituents, and ripping Scotland out of the single market and the customs union would be a disaster. That is not just my opinion; it is what the leaked Brexit analysis for the Prime Minster said. It is important to note that the Finance and Constitution Committee recently agreed unanimously that the Brexit bill, in its current form, is...
