Daniel Johnson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to ensure that the Royal hospital for sick children is fit for purpose, in light of reports that the existing building needs over £700,000 of significant maintenance work. (S5T-01916)
Daniel Johnson: If we are to learn the lessons from the PISA results, we need to be frank about what the results say. If we acknowledge that they are part of a 20-year downward trend, will the cabinet secretary acknowledge that the reading results that he describes as an improvement are simply a return to 2003 levels, as is stated in the report?
Stuart McMillan: ...—that is 33,626 people. If the Tories think that that is fair, that says a lot about the world in which they live and about how out of touch the Scottish and UK Tories are. With the likes of Johnson, Jacob Rees Mogg—who has disappeared from the election campaign—and Priti Patel wanting to continue in Government after next week, the dystopian nightmare that thousands of people face,...

Nicola Sturgeon: ...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.
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...
Daniel Johnson: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to prevent assaults on retail workers. (S5O-03835)
Michael Russell: ...for Foreign Affairs”, etcetera, so there is an element, as there has been since the issuing of the first passports, of international protection, and there is a link to voting protection. Lyndon Johnson observed that “A man without a vote is a man without protection”. So, there is an issue of rights within the state, where residence takes place, which are protected by voting and may...
Fiona Hyslop: ...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 Johnson has...
Daniel Johnson: The full adoption of the UNCRC brings with it the possibility of unforeseen incompatibilities with pre-existing legislation, as has been mentioned. Has the Government identified examples of such incompatibilities and is it undertaking proactive work to identify possible conflicts with existing law?
Daniel Johnson: Will Liam McArthur give way?
Alison Johnstone: ...health 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...
Kenneth Macintosh: The next item of business is consideration of a Parliamentary Bureau motion. I call Graeme Dey to move motion S5M-19955, on committee membership. That the Parliament agrees that Daniel Johnson be appointed to replace Monica Lennon as a member of the Solicitors in the Supreme Courts of Scotland (Amendment) Bill Committee.

Fergus Ewing: ...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 circumstance?
...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 future; I...
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—
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...
Bruce Crawford: ...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 would be...
Daniel Johnson: I agree that there are clearly economic opportunities, but to take them our people need to have the right skills. In that regard, can the minister comment on recent data that shows a decline in the number of our young people leaving school with qualifications in science and mathematics?
