Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (Discussions with United Kingdom Government) (29 Sep 2021)

Gordon MacDonald: Around 8,000 families and individuals in my constituency are on universal credit and they were already struggling before the pandemic. With the end of the furlough scheme looming, price increases across the retail sector and massive energy price hikes, cutting the £20 uplift in universal credit without carrying out an impact assessment is a complete dereliction of duty. Will the cabinet...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink (1 Sep 2021)

Rachael Hamilton: ...industry has said about the Green -SNP deal. It is absolutely extraordinary that the agreement does not mention fishing, which is one of our most important sectors.

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill (6 Jul 2021)

Michael Gove: I completely disagree. Looking at the broad economic situation that we face and what may happen in future, we have a well-informed and judicious electorate that will make a judgment whenever an election is called about the fitness of this Government to be returned to office or, indeed, the readiness of the Opposition or any other party to assume office, as has been seen in the past. When...

What advice can the First...

0.7% Official Development Assistance Target (8 Jun 2021)

Margaret Greenwood: As host of this year’s G7 summit, which takes place later this week, the Government should be leading by example.

The Government’s decisions will mean a cut of nearly 60% in humanitarian...

Christine Jardine: ...charged. Those of us with familial experience, or who have felt helpless as we watched friends cope with the heartbreak of watching their loved ones decline, know how much a dementia diagnosis demands of not just those affected but those closest to them.
