Scottish Parliament: Hospital Infections (24 Mar 2021)

Anas Sarwar: 2. I join the First Minister and Ruth Davidson in sending our condolences to all those who have lost a loved one and in saying thank you to all our heroes on the front line. There has been a lot of focus on two reports this week, but, no matter how devastating they were or could have been, nothing is more devastating than the report that I have here. On Monday, the “Queen Elizabeth...

Scottish Parliament: Trident (24 Mar 2021)

Nicola Sturgeon: By this time next week, we will be taking part in all sorts of election debates, so I look forward to Anas Sarwar proudly articulating Scottish Labour’s policy of unilateral nuclear disarmament and of getting rid of Trident nuclear weapons from the Clyde. If he does not do that, I will have to assume that Sir Keir Starmer has not allowed him to do so. We will find that out in the course of...

Scottish Parliament: Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill (24 Mar 2021)

Roseanna Cunningham: ...pulled him into the same relationship—usually assisted by prosecco, it has to be said—although Liam’s cross-chamber texts are not quite as wicked as Tavish’s were. I have to apologise to Anas Sarwar. Pre-lockdown, I said that I would make him a rhubarb and ginger cake, which I have singularly failed to deliver, thereby allowing him to say with authority that nationalists do not...

Scottish Parliament: Motion of Thanks (24 Mar 2021)

Anas Sarwar: I, too, support the motion in the First Minister’s name. I echo the First Minister’s comments about Linda Fabiani. She is a fierce but kind politician with whom I have had the pleasure of spending the past five years. There were lots of nice gossips and chats along the way. I pay tribute to all the MSPs from across the chamber who are either pursuing new challenges or going on to, I hope,...

Scottish Parliament: Presiding Officer’s Closing Remarks (24 Mar 2021)

...have two further, rather election-focused, requests. One is from James Kelly, who asked me whether it is too late for me to shout at him and have him thrown out of the chamber. The other is from Anas Sarwar, who said, “Things are worse than I thought. Could you use your powers to delay the election by a month or two?” [ Laughter .] I thank you for your indulgence, colleagues. After the...

Renewables Obligation (Amendment) Order 2021 - Motion to Approve (23 Mar 2021)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: ...of extraordinary modesty. Over the past month, there has been a lot of press coverage of the change of leadership in the Scottish Labour Party. People have been saying that the new Labour leader, Anas Sarwar, is the first Muslim leader of a British political party and the first ethnic minority leader. I wish Mr Sarwar every success: you do not have to be a Labour supporter to want the best...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Reflections and Next Steps) (23 Mar 2021)

Anas Sarwar: A year since Scotland went into the first lockdown, almost 10,000 of our fellow Scots have lost their lives, and my thoughts are with all their families. This past year has been tough for us all. We have been distant from loved ones, unable to share good moments and—hardest of all—unable to grieve together. We are all indebted to the heroes on the front line who have helped to save lives...

Scottish Parliament: Motion of No Confidence (23 Mar 2021)

Anas Sarwar: Earlier today, we held a minute’s silence on the steps outside the chamber to remember all those who have lost their lives over the past year and all those grieving the loss of a loved one. On this, the penultimate day before the Parliament reaches the end of its five-year session, I would much rather that we were reflecting on the impact of this dreadful pandemic and debating what we need...

Scottish Independence Referendum — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (22 Mar 2021)

Ian Murray: ...First Minister should contemplate it—and no responsible Prime Minister would grant it.” Those are the words of the leader of the Labour party, and the new leader of the Scottish Labour party, Anas Sarwar, has been pretty clear that we will go into the 6 May election saying that we are setting aside every single bit of constitutional division to unite our country and put forward a...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services (18 Mar 2021)

Anas Sarwar: 2. My thoughts are with all those who have lost a loved one to Covid. I also want to thank our amazing national health service staff, who continue to go above and beyond. We know that the pandemic has had a devastating impact on the mental health of people across Scotland. Last month, a report from the Government showed that more than one in eight of our fellow Scots had reported suicidal...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2021 (18 Mar 2021)

Bill Bowman: ...the convenership of my colleague Gordon Lindhurst. I then moved to the Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee, convened by Jenny Marra, with stand-in parts for Jackie Baillie and Anas Sarwar when she was on maternity leave. I also served as deputy convener of the Scottish Commission for Public Audit, a body that is probably not so well known to many. As the Parliament’s...

Scottish Parliament: Drug Deaths and Harms (18 Mar 2021)

Jenny Marra: ...was taken up with the brutal debate of the independence referendum, while the drugs crisis wrapped its fingers around the throats of people in my community. I will never forget the intimidation as Anas Sarwar and I stood shoulder to shoulder in Dundee city square, facing up Reform street as an army of kilts, drums and painted blue faces marched and shouted their way towards us. I felt that...

Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future (17 Mar 2021)

Anas Sarwar: I thank the First Minister for advance sight of her statement and I, too, pass on my condolences to all those who have lost a loved one.

Official Government statistics show that 7,000 fewer people had a confirmed cancer diagnosis in the first eight months of the pandemic. That does not mean that cancer has gone away; cancer remains Scotland’s...
