Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2020-21 (1 Sep 2020)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...positive cases were confirmed yesterday. That represents 1.2 per cent of the people newly tested and takes our total number of cases to 20,632. The full health board breakdown is available on the Scottish Government website. However, I draw attention to the fact that 66 of today’s cases are in Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The situation there is causing us some concern. Further analysis is...

Scottish Parliament: Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan (20 Aug 2020)

Aileen Campbell: ...in the 2017 act, which is welcome, particularly because the independent projections that we published alongside the delivery plan had anticipated sharp increases in rates because of UK Government welfare cuts. New estimates that were published today highlight that we have increased our investment targeted at children living in low-income households by £144 million to an estimated £672...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Evictions) (12 Aug 2020)

...ran through some of the actions that we are taking. We will continue to look at all the steps that we are taking and consider where we can do more, including through financial support. We increased funding for discretionary housing payments in order to help people in the rented sector—Pauline McNeill alluded to that—and we have more than doubled the Scottish welfare fund. As we put...

Scottish Parliament: Internal Market (30 Jul 2020)

Michael Russell: On 16 July, the United Kingdom Government published a white paper on the UK internal market. The Scottish Government believes that the unilateral proposals that are made in that white paper, without proper consultation of the devolved Administrations, are unacceptable and unnecessary. I am therefore grateful for the opportunity to make a statement on the matter. Once we have seen the final...

Covid-19: Future UK-EU Relationship (15 Jul 2020)

Alan Brown: ...him for advising me to get back to the thrust of my speech, as I will now, on that very theme. As he correctly points out, in the highlands and islands, so many areas have benefited from European funding over the years. So many road upgrades have been undertaken, with causeways built, to connect islands, all based on European funding. That money is no longer accessible to Scotland. That...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Next Steps) (9 Jul 2020)

..., we have taken a number of measures to try to better protect those in the private rented sector. We will continue to look at what more we can do. During this crisis, we have also increased the Scottish welfare fund and other sources of support for people who have financial difficulties, which is also important. The Local Government and Communities Committee took a decision and I cannot...

Finance Bill: New Clause 19 - Taxation of coronavirus support payments (2 Jul 2020)

Alison Thewliss: ...my constituency and constituencies throughout the country not having food to put on the table, money spent on redecorating a plane is a shame that should stain this Government. As I was saying, the Scottish Government have taken child poverty incredibly seriously. They have set in statute the commitment to eradicate child poverty by 2030, with concrete action in the child poverty delivery...

Scottish Parliament: Provisional Outturn 2019-20 (17 Jun 2020)

Kate Forbes: I welcome the opportunity to update the Parliament on the provisional budget outturn for the financial year 2019-20. The provisional outturn demonstrates, once again, that the Scottish Government has prudently and competently managed Scotland’s finances in challenging and uncertain times, taking into account Covid-19 expenditure up to 31 March. We are, of course, still in the midst of a...

Zoos, Aquariums and Wildlife Sanctuaries: Reopening (11 Jun 2020)

Andrew Rosindell: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Many children will not be returning to school, so this would be an ideal time to allow them and their parents to visit zoos and animal welfare organisations, given the educational benefits involved. That is another good reason why the Minister needs to hurry up and allow all these organisations to open as quickly as possible. The limited reopening on...

Agriculture Bill - Second Reading (10 Jun 2020)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...to maintain this reputation. I have said this many times, and I am starting to believe that certain noble Lords are determined not to believe me when I say it, but all EU food safety, animal welfare and environmental standards will be retained and form part of our domestic law. I emphasise that that includes all existing import requirements. Any changes to existing legislative standards...

That package included a third sector resilience fund, which has so far provided more than £20 million to nearly 1,100 organisations, to help stabilise and manage cash flows over this difficult period. It has saved more than 12,000 jobs to date. A...

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...tackle some unprecedented issues. I am very aware of the public issues that arose over Durdle Door, which admittedly is several hundred miles from Scotland. Here we are, however, talking about the Scottish police. I make clear, as I did in my opening remarks, that the Scottish police play a very important role and are doing it wonderfully. I will answer directly a question raised by the...

Scottish Parliament: Glasgow City Council (Covid-19 Support) (28 May 2020)

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Wellbeing Support) (26 May 2020)

Aileen Campbell: ...-first approach to food insecurity, which is the most dignified way to provide support and is founded on human rights principles. That is why we have more than doubled the national budget for the Scottish welfare fund, and why we have given local authorities the flexibility to provide their £30 million allocation of the food fund as cash or, where appropriate, vouchers. Of the £70...

Scottish Parliament: Free School Meals (Summer Holidays) (21 May 2020)

Aileen Campbell: Of the £70 million food fund, we gave local authorities £15 million to cover free school meals programmes, and a further £15 million for other food insecurity issues that they might want to address. That was a £30 million pot. Another £30 million was earmarked for the shielded group, and £10 million has been and continues to be used to respond to other food insecurity issues, including...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus (Scotland) (No 2) Bill: Stage 3 (20 May 2020)

Kevin Stewart: ...the regulations will be effective and workable, we will work with stakeholders—including Mr Wightman, and representatives of landlords and tenants—to develop them. They will also be subject to Scottish Parliament scrutiny and approval through the affirmative procedure. I turn to the amendments in the group that were lodged by other members. We all know that the wider impacts of...
