Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (17 Mar 2021)

Humza Yousaf: ...with Scottish Women’s Aid at or before stage 2, and we were persuaded by its concerns around consent and empowerment, as the committee probably was, too. However, on further reflection—as Liam Kerr knows, the bill has, through no fault of anyone in the chamber, been expedited to a truncated timetable—we felt that we had gone too far. I will give an important example. We could have a...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Bill (17 Mar 2021)

Liam Kerr: ..., such as the judiciary, the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service and specialist independent advocacy. In his opening remarks, the cabinet secretary referred to the post-bill implementation group, which is being set up to bring together all the key agencies that will be affected by the new legislation, including Police Scotland. That is welcome, but it will not be straightforward....

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (16 Mar 2021)

Liam McArthur: ...is not acceptable, and women should have the right to feel safe. The Scottish Liberal Democrats believe that a commission should be established to build on the work of Baroness Helena Kennedy’s group, to make recommendations and to pave the way for the changes that need to be made. Does that idea command the support of the cabinet secretary?

Scottish Parliament: United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (16 Mar 2021)

John Swinney: ...we could all get round to doing it. Those are wonderful ideas, but for me the whole essence of the conversation was captured by the contribution of a young man and member of the Scottish Youth Parliament for Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley, Liam Fowley, who is on the education recovery group and who sits with us every Thursday morning making a contribution on behalf of young people on the...

Scottish Parliament: Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill (11 Mar 2021)

Liam Kerr: All noted, Presiding Officer. Today marks the end of a long and tortuous passage for a bill that was introduced almost a year ago. An unprecedented 2,000-plus individuals and groups felt compelled to respond to the request for evidence. Last autumn, I suggested to Parliament that, in the light of that, and given the responses, the pandemic and the disruption to everyday life, the sensible...

The Presiding Officer: The result of the division on amendment 4, in the name of Johann Lamont, is: For 53, Against 68, Abstentions 0. Amendment 4 disagreed to. Group 2 is on the threshold for and operation of offences relating to stirring up hatred. Before I call the first amendment, in the name of Liam Kerr, as we are already nearing the agreed time limit, I am prepared to exercise my...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change Plan (9 Mar 2021)

Sarah Boyack: ...to the debate. We need to meet our climate change targets; it is not enough just to have good targets. The criticism from the committees is powerful. There is cross-party support across the Parliament for more radical action to tackle our climate emergency, and members have made an incredibly powerful case for wide-ranging and cross-cutting measures. The Local Government and Communities...

Scottish Parliament: Defamation and Malicious Publication (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (2 Mar 2021)

The Presiding Officer: The result of the division is: For 32, Against 86, Abstentions 0. Amendment 5 disagreed to. Amendment 6 not moved. Group 2 is on secondary publication: regulation-making power. Amendment 1, in the name of Liam Kerr, is the only amendment in the group.

Scottish Parliament: Reimbursement of Members’ Expenses Scheme (2 Mar 2021)

Liam McArthur: ...was needed in other areas—for example, the annual limit on staff travel of 74 journeys has been removed, and members with a disability or caring responsibilities who would normally fall into group 2 for Edinburgh accommodation can now apply to the SPCB to be considered as falling into group 3. Additional temporary resources can be applied for where a member is absent long term, and the...

Vauxhall at Ellesmere Port and Battery Manufacturing Strategy (1 Mar 2021)

Matt Western: As chair of the all-party parliamentary motor group and the APPG on electric vehicles, I am afraid I have to say that the Government have been slow to move on this, particularly by comparison with the Governments of Germany and France, in attracting investment in battery gigafactories. In addition, through the pandemic, vehicle manufacturers have received consumer support to encourage sales...

Terminally Ill People: Access to Benefits (22 Feb 2021)

Justin Tomlinson: ..., was formidable in our meetings, drawing from her personal experiences to help shape and focus our work as we went forward. This issue has much interest from cross-party MPs not just here in Parliament but in the devolved Assemblies across the UK; health and disability charities and stakeholder groups; public advocates such as Charlotte Hawkins, a patron of the MND Association; and...

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (Report) (18 Feb 2021)

Liam McArthur: ...am confident that it will. Assemblies do not need to cover 100 things, but it is good for public life and good for the future of our country that we can draw on the committed and thorough work of a group of citizens working in an assembly to add to the work of our democratically chosen Parliament for the benefit of us all. I again thank all those who were involved in preparing a very...

Trade Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (2 Feb 2021)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...are not challenging the Government’s power to initiate and carry on their trade negotiations under the royal prerogative. Many would argue that that is outdated and should be changed and that Parliament should have a role in that, but we have not chosen to engage with that at this stage. We are not challenging the relationship between international trade agreements and the CRaG Act 2010....

Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 (28 Jan 2021)

Liam Fox: ...as a seismic political shift, which recognised a new and glorious image of humanity. Yet this world view was accompanied and counterbalanced by a systematic, ideological dehumanisation of other groups of people: those who oppose the regime, political activists, Gypsies, the disabled, homosexuals, Christians, religious objectors and, of course, the Jews. Incrementally, but steadily over...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (28 Jan 2021)

Liam Kerr: ...protection to address risk.” Police Scotland reminded the committee that, where emergency measures such as those that are outlined in the bill are taken, that is usually done with a “core group of statutory partners” who “have a key role in decision making from the outset.” Police Scotland proposes that the risk identified must be in line with sexual offence prevention orders,...

Scottish Parliament: Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (19 Jan 2021)

Liam Kerr: ...that cannot be gained any other way, or to disrupting serious crime and security threats to the nation.” He went on to say that in Scotland the activity is used to tackle organised crime groups that are “involved in drugs and weapons running, human trafficking, child sexual abuse rings and terrorism plots”, and he concluded that a source’s “participation in criminal activity may...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (22 Dec 2020)

Michael Russell: ...Government to try to improve the bill since its introduction. The bill today is significantly better than when it was introduced. I do not find it difficult to say that—that is the purpose of parliamentary scrutiny. I am glad, for example, that we have been able to look at the issue of purpose, which we will come to later on, and issues of delegation, which Alex Rowley raised in the...

Scottish Parliament: Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (15 Dec 2020)

Humza Yousaf: Absolutely—that is my entire point. The two do not have to be mutually exclusive. Liam Kerr will know that we have in the bill provisions on freedom of expression in relation to religion. I have given feedback to the committee on how I think that those provisions can be expanded to align better with the provisions on freedom of expression regarding religion in the English and Welsh...

Scottish Parliament: Forensic Medical Services (Victims of Sexual Offences) (Scotland) Bill (10 Dec 2020)

Liam Kerr: ...the option of going ahead with a male doctor or waiting until a female doctor is working. I am sure that we all noted the evidence that was supplied to MSPs last night from HEAL, a survivors’ group. In one passage that I thought was particularly hard hitting, it suggests that “survivors, who are unable to tolerate male examiners giving them an intimate examination when they are newly...

Trade Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 8 (7 Dec 2020)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...people who commit genocide are held to account. We have a long record of working together on this and I am sure we will continue that co-operative approach tonight. As we heard in the previous group of amendments, all EU trade deals since 2009 have had human rights clauses embedded in them, allowing the EU to suspend a deal, either partially or fully, if the third country is adjudged...
