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...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Vaccine Delivery) (3 Dec 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...a vaccine; now, the biggest public health exercise in history is needed to distribute it. It is, of course, essential that islanders are offered equal access to the vaccine and that the priority groups who live in remote parts of Scotland are fully included in the first and subsequent waves of the roll-out. Can the cabinet secretary therefore give my Orkney constituents a categoric...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (2 Dec 2020)

Liam Kerr: Yes, I agree with that. I can see from the record that many business groups did not support the proposal in the order. I will shortly speak specifically about one such group, and about a solution that might be of interest. The last revaluation was several years ago. The north-east was accordingly assessed against trading conditions as they stood at that time. That reassessment completely...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Support for Young People (1 Dec 2020)

Gail Ross: ...ultimately more agency, in respect of their own mental health. Around this time last year, I—along with Brian Whittle, who was my committee colleague at the time—had the privilege of meeting a group of young people in Parliament.

UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (25 Nov 2020)

Liam Fox: ..., because a multilateral agreement, or even an open plurilateral agreement, would give us far greater access to what we really need. Finally, let me say something about CPTPP. This is a regional grouping of increasing importance. As my right hon. Friend said, it represents an increasing share of global GDP. With the UK, it would be bigger in GDP share than the EU; with the United States,...

Scottish Parliament: Policing (Complaints Handling, Investigations and Misconduct Issues) (Independent Review) (25 Nov 2020)

Scottish Parliament: Youth Football (19 Nov 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...qualifications along the way. It has been a hugely rewarding experience, and I am delighted by the development in the sport at a local level, which has been overseen by the Orkney Youth Development Group and enabled by so many parents and volunteers. As well as giving boys and girls in Orkney the chance to develop their skills, confidence and friendships, it has contributed to improved...

Scottish Parliament: Declaration of a Nature Emergency (18 Nov 2020)

Gillian Martin: ...it also echoes recommendations from the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee and the outcomes of the work that the committee has been doing in inquiries and scrutiny over this parliamentary session.

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Support (Police Officers and Police Staff) (10 Nov 2020)

Humza Yousaf: First and foremost, there are more than 1,000 more officers than there were when we took office. That is in stark contrast to the cuts to police officer numbers after Liam Kerr’s party came into office, as part of the United Kingdom Government. I am proud to stand on our record. With regard to resource, the Scottish Conservatives pushed us to increase police funding in the current budget by...

Liam Kerr: ...of the law in exceptional circumstances and the miners’ protection of their jobs, their way of life and their communities. With that in mind, I also acknowledge the calibre of the review group and its full and comprehensive report. A matter such as this, with such a degree of nuance and need for understanding of all the facts and all perspectives, required nothing less than that report,...

Scottish Parliament: International Development (Covid-19) (6 Oct 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...the bridges and look inward. In turn, that cross-party support draws its strength from the extent of civic buy-in from across Scotland. Like Alexander Stewart, I am a co-convener of the cross-party group on Malawi and, as such, I will shamelessly and proudly use the warm heart of Africa to illustrate my point. There is scarcely a community in Scotland that does not have some sort of link...

Scottish Parliament: Forensic Medical Services (Victims of Sexual Offences) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (1 Oct 2020)

As Lewis Macdonald pointed out, there is a...

Scottish Parliament: Albion Rovers FC (Mark Millar Donation) (30 Sep 2020)

Fulton MacGregor: ...the cross-party support that it has received. I declare an interest as a relatively recent member of the board of the Albion Rovers communities trust and I am also the convener of the cross-party group on the future of football in Scotland. There will be two main strands to my contribution. First, I will highlight the amazing gesture from Coatbridge lad, Mark Millar, to his local team and...

Scottish Parliament: Court Cases (Backlog) (29 Sep 2020)

Humza Yousaf: I say to Liam Kerr in all seriousness that, when it comes to the issue of courts and victims, he is not in the best books of the victims organisations, because of the approach that his party has taken. I would not suggest that the Government has not done anything to address the backlog; I have given Liam Kerr details of where we have done that. I have referenced the fact that, in England,...

Andy Wightman: ...months of the pandemic, were very much on the front line, meeting and greeting thousands of customers and seeking to police a safe environment, much of which is mandated by laws passed by the Parliament, the latest of which is, of course, the regulation on wearing face coverings. All that is in addition to the existing laws on, for example, age-restricted goods and services that retail...

Scottish Parliament: Staff Cost Provision (Review) (17 Sep 2020)
