Scottish Parliament: Female Genital Mutilation (Protection and Guidance) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (18 Dec 2019)

Elaine Smith: ...underfunded and understaffed, and we can add to those burdens. Therefore, we have to add to their funding and their allocation to back up the strategy. Sadly, we can expect only more austerity from Boris Johnson’s Government at Westminster. However, many of the services that will be involved in the prevention strategy are funded by local government. Therefore, I urge the Scottish...

Members Sworn (17 Dec 2019)

Lindsay Hoyle: their Whips. The following Members took and subscribed the Oath, or made and subscribed the Affirmation required by law: Sir Peter James Bottomley, for Worthing West Right honourable Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson , Uxbridge and South Ruislip Right honourable Priti Sushil Patel, Witham Right honourable Dominic Rennie Raab, Esher and Walton Right honourable Robert James Buckland,...

Message to attend the Lords Commissioners: Election of Speaker (17 Dec 2019)

Boris Johnson: Mr Speaker-Elect, I am sure that the whole House will join me in sending condolences to the families and friends of Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones, who were murdered in the terrorist attack near London Bridge during the election campaign. We pay tribute once again to the emergency services and to members of the public for the bravery they showed. Mr Speaker-Elect, I congratulate you on your...

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (17 Dec 2019)

Aileen Campbell: ...Government, its manifesto will increase child poverty levels to a 60-year high. That is outrageous. It shows again, in sharp focus, that we have the choice of two futures: we either continue with Boris Johnson’s austerity, and face that potential 60-year high in child poverty, or we work towards a future in which we can create a fairer Scotland and every child has a chance to flourish.

Scottish Parliament: General Election Outcome (17 Dec 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...and my colleagues and I will work hard each and every day to repay the trust that has again been placed in us. It was also an endorsement of our election message that Scotland does not want a Boris Johnson Government, that we do not want to leave the European Union and that, although opinions may differ on the substantive question of independence, we want Scotland’s future to be in...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Administration (Relations) (11 Dec 2019)

Colin Beattie: Does the cabinet secretary agree that, when it comes to the UK Administration, the greatest threat facing Scotland is a Boris Johnson-led Government, which would force us out of Europe and put our NHS at risk in a US trade deal?

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Relations) (11 Dec 2019)

Shona Robison: ...for my constituents in Dundee but for the whole of Scotland? Does she also agree that, tomorrow, the people of Scotland have the opportunity to take Scotland’s future into its own hands, to stop Boris Johnson, stop the Tories and stop Brexit—

Scottish Parliament: General Election (Private Conversations) (11 Dec 2019)

...for Jackson Carlaw. However, let me tell Jackson Carlaw what my priority is tomorrow. It is to make sure that I do everything that I can to ensure that we do not wake up on Friday morning to a Boris Johnson Government, because a Tory Government will mean more cuts to our public services, rising child poverty and a hard Brexit. That is what a Tory Government will mean for Scotland, and the...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Migrants (11 Dec 2019)

Keith Brown: Boris Johnson has said that, for too long, EU citizens have been “able to treat the UK as though it is basically part of their own country”. Does the First Minister agree that those comments are disgraceful, that migrants who have chosen to live in Scotland are welcome and that not only do we want them to stay, we want them to feel that Scotland is their home?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (11 Dec 2019)

...that gives greater priority to tackling the climate emergency—not just to the setting of the targets but to the actions that have to be taken to meet those targets. It was deeply regrettable that Boris Johnson did not come to the leaders debate on those issues. That sends a rather poor signal of the level of priority that the UK Government gives to those issues. There is no doubt that...

Scottish Parliament: Action on Climate Change (28 Nov 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...Governments across the world and we will continue to do so. I look forward to taking part in the Channel 4 leaders’ debate on climate change this evening. When I was last updated on the debate, Boris Johnson was still running scared of it. I hope that he changes his mind and joins us on the platform tonight.

Scottish Parliament: Post-Brexit Trade Deal (28 Nov 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ..., if agreements were done with drug companies, for example, to extend patents, which I believe is mentioned in the paperwork that was leaked yesterday. That is the risk to our health service if Boris Johnson and the Tories get their way. I think that the priority for people in Scotland over the next couple of weeks is to make sure that Boris Johnson does not get his way, we get him out of...

Scottish Parliament: Television Licences (Over-75s) (21 Nov 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: ...informed and entertained and to be treated with empathy and understanding. The UK Government is playing games with welfare and public service broadcasting. On 26 August this year, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “The BBC received a settlement that was conditional upon their paying for TV licences for the over-75s. They should cough up.” Now that a general election looms, Boris...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (20 Nov 2019)

Alasdair Allan: ...all that right at some unspecified point in the future. It is time for Labour finally to join the widening consensus that all aspects of the benefits system should be in Scotland’s hands—not in Boris Johnson’s.

Scottish Parliament: Health and Social Care (Investment) (20 Nov 2019)

Alison Johnstone: service. The amendment also recognises a fundamental threat to the sustainability of the national health service: the catastrophe that a hard Brexit would be and the possibility that a Boris Johnson Government would desperately pursue a trade deal with the United States. I will, therefore, support the Government amendment. The hard Brexit that the Tories are pursuing represents one...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Fergus Ewing: ...does nothing to take back control of our waters. If Mr Chapman disagrees, can he read the extract from the agreement where that is agreed to? Given that that does not exist, does he not agree that Boris Johnson has simply kicked the can down the road, and that any negotiation that has not been carried out now may never be carried out, and will be fiercely resisted by the EU under any...

Scottish Parliament: Referendums (14 Nov 2019)

...Carlaw or anybody else is in any doubt about this, but let me be absolutely candid: I support independence for Scotland. I want Scotland to escape a position where our future is imposed on us by Boris Johnson, who is now having his strings pulled by Nigel Farage. The Tory party is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party. I do not want that to be Scotland’s...

Scottish Parliament: Diabetes, Heart Disease and Stroke (Over-65s) (14 Nov 2019)

Maureen Watt: The First Minister will be aware that the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, has pledged that the Tories will cut overall immigration and end freedom of movement if Boris Johnson wins—

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (No-deal Planning) (14 Nov 2019)

Keith Brown: As the cabinet secretary will be aware, Tory Government ministers are on the record as ruling out extending the transition period past 2020. Under the terms of Boris Johnson’s deal, if no free-trade agreement is reached by the end of 2020 and no extension is in place, we will, in effect, again face the cliff edge of a hugely disastrous no-deal Brexit, with all the damage to jobs and...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Products (United States Tariffs) (14 Nov 2019)

Bruce Crawford: ...imposed on an economically weakened UK. It will not have escaped people’s notice that the attack on a number of UK products by the US Government comes from the very Trump Administration that Boris Johnson boasts we will have a post-Brexit trade deal with. President Trump himself has indicated that that will be possible only with a no-deal Brexit, which would mean that the UK Government...
