Rachael Maskell: ...promised for so long. Around 2,500 job losses have been announced over the past six months, including those of 156 Nestlé workers just before Dissolution. The Prime Minister could only point those workers to the job centre, rather than fighting for our future economy. Yes, the system seems so broken. It is the poor, the sick and those who face the greatest challenges who are really...

Jamie Greene: ...of the public, journalists and many individuals and third parties. I am used to ministers engaging in the dark political art of avoiding answering questions on important issues such as the Scottish economy, health waiting times, education standards or digital skills deficiencies, or concerns over named person legislation and Police Scotland—I could go on.

Andy Wightman: ...afternoon. The issue that the cabinet secretary identified as problematic is that a target that is specific to aviation emissions would, in his view, be inflexible and would challenge the whole-economy approach in Scotland’s current climate change legislation.
