1. Questions to the First Minister: Young Musicians (18 Jun 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: I very much welcome, obviously, the national music service investment, but it was never set up for conservatoire-style study.

And just one example, First...

Scottish Parliament: Public Service Investment (13 Jun 2024)

Miles Briggs: I will come on to that in my speech. I welcomed what the health secretary said last week. I have been calling for that during the whole time that I have been in this Parliament.
