Coronavirus Bill (23 Mar 2020)

Liam Byrne: ...so much. The definition of the frontline is the point of maximum danger, and there are hundreds of thousands of people who have put themselves in danger to keep the rest of us safe. There is one group I would like to single out: the extraordinary group of people at Heartlands Hospital in my constituency who have been working tirelessly to help to keep our city of Birmingham safe. It was...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Prisons) (18 Mar 2020)

Liam Kerr: ...Police Scotland are organisations that must, for the safety of the Scottish public, continue to interact with many different people and communities. Given the obvious current health risks to both groups, will the cabinet secretary outline any contingency plans that he has in place to help with personnel shortages? For example, has he considered bringing in retired officers or using...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Update) (17 Mar 2020)

Humza Yousaf: The Scottish Prison Service has a national coronavirus response group, which has implemented the service’s pandemic plan. Local governors will oversee those plans in local establishments. We have a multitude of concerns, which are primarily for our staff and those in our care. With regard to staff, we have ensured that the SPS has secured sufficient levels of PPE for the next 10 weeks, but...

Scottish Parliament: Animals and Wildlife (Penalties, Protections and Powers) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (12 Mar 2020)

Finlay Carson: ..., the Animals and Wildlife (Penalties, Protections and Powers) (Scotland) Bill could have gone further and been an overarching piece of legislation on animal cruelty. It is 14 years since this Parliament passed the previous major piece of legislation on animal welfare and cruelty in 2006. This bill is long overdue, and we need to introduce new penalties for those who continue to cause pain...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Chris Evans: ...of Dean (Mr Harper) for, again, a very insightful speech, though I did not agree with much of it. I must take issue with him. After my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) spoke, I was expecting him to mention that infamous letter. I feel that I have to mention the infamous letter that Reggie Maudlin wrote to James Callaghan in 1964. He said, “Sorry,...

Scottish Parliament: Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal (11 Mar 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...as well as resourcing from the Government. As we, hopefully, progress toward meeting that target, we also need to address the inequality of access and the difficulties that are faced by particular groups: those who are aged over 85, those who live alone, ethnic minority groups and those who are from deprived communities, as Rona Mackay suggested. We also need to address the large...

Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans Women’s Health Inequalities (10 Mar 2020)

Hannah Bardell: ...Act 2004 and the impact of the current system on the mental and physical health of trans people. I urge people to listen to it because it is hugely informative. I pay tribute to Jordan Daly and Liam Stevenson, who founded TIE, and the chair, Rhiannon Spear; they do remarkable work in Scotland for young people around LGBT education. Mridul spoke about the patriarchal nature of the gender...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Biometrics Commissioner Bill: Stage 3 (10 Mar 2020)

Humza Yousaf: The amendments in the group in my name make minor and technical changes to the bill. Amendments 20 and 21 adjust section 2(7), to move the definition of “children and young persons” from after the definition of “vulnerable persons” to before it. That simply allows the list to be arranged alphabetically—we know that civil servants love ordering lists alphabetically. The definition...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Biometrics Commissioner Bill (10 Mar 2020)

Liam Kerr: ...of practice, which is set out in section 6, is fundamental. It has been a major area for amendment—and rightly so. During the process, the cabinet secretary amended the bill to provide greater parliamentary scrutiny of the first code of practice by ensuring that the commissioner must lay a copy of the first—draft—code before Parliament for representations. That is a good development,...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [Lords] (9 Mar 2020)

Khalid Mahmood: ...all of his family. Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to take part in this debate on the Commonwealth games. As a number of colleagues and friends have mentioned, I am the Member of Parliament in whose constituency most of the games will take place. I was the first Member of Parliament in Birmingham to call for the Commonwealth games to be brought to Birmingham, before we...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Elections (Franchise and Representation) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Feb 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...of the bill and what it says about the open, outward-looking and welcoming country that we wish to be. The Scottish Liberal Democrats will support all the Government’s amendments in the group. Notwithstanding the concerns that have been raised by the cabinet secretary and Conservative members, I thank Mark Ruskell for lodging his amendments, which would allow asylum seekers with live...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Elections (Franchise and Representation) Bill (20 Feb 2020)

James Kelly: Much of the debate has focused on prisoner voting. It is perhaps a sign of the progress that Parliament has made that, in 2020, we have arrived at a position in which we are prepared to support prisoner voting, or a partial extension to prisoners of the right to vote. I explained in my opening speech the reasons why I opposed such a measure in 2013 and why I support it now. Many members who...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Biometrics Commissioner Bill: Stage 1 (9 Jan 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...and offer thanks to those who helped the Justice Committee during our stage 1 scrutiny. I also want to acknowledge the contribution of John Scott QC and his colleagues on the independent advisory group, who have done so much to lay the foundations for the bill. Mr Scott barely had time to draw breath, after digging the Government out of a hole over unregulated stop and search, before being...

Members Sworn (17 Dec 2019)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...Office and the Vote Office. I propose to call first the Father of the House, then members of the Cabinet, then members of the shadow Cabinet, then all Privy Counsellors not included in those two groups, wherever they may be sitting, and then other Ministers. Thereafter, I shall call other hon. Members broadly according to the Parliament of their first entry, or, for those with broken...

Scottish Parliament: Disability Sport and Participation (5 Dec 2019)

Jackie Baillie: ...right to praise their achievements, but I want to talk about the young disabled people in my area. In 2009, Tommi Orismaa, football development officer at West Dunbartonshire Council, was taking a group of young disabled people and their parents to a game of football in Falkirk. Why Falkirk? I do not know, but during the journey, the parents spoke about the very few opportunities that...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Prison Service (Auditor General’s Report) (3 Dec 2019)

Humza Yousaf: I thank Liam Kerr for some very important questions. I agree with him that the report made for very grim reading—I do not doubt that, and I hope that I have set that out clearly. I also hope that I made clear my intention that we will work and invest to bring down those pressures on our Prison Service. Regarding the violence that prison officers face, we have a more complex population in...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (27 Nov 2019)

Mark McDonald: ..., let alone the number that we see on an annual basis. As MSPs, we recently we had the opportunity to undertake suicide prevention training, which was provided by SAMH. I attended a session with Liam McArthur and Finlay Carson. One of the key things that came across at that session, as we talked about people who reach out to us as MSPs or personally, was that the vast majority of such...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

Ben Macpherson: ...of our communities. It is also important to talk about how we continue to attract people from within the UK. We have net migration into Scotland from the rest of the UK and the expert advisory group will look at what more can be done with that. We also need to continue to consider overall immigration policy and Scotland’s needs, aspirations and values, how we can continue to attract...

Scottish Parliament: Geese and Stoat Population Management (Orkney) (6 Nov 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...from Douglas Paterson to see first hand the damage that is caused to crops and farmland in the east of Orkney’s Mainland. I acknowledge the work that has been done by SNH and others in the local group, but I extend the invitation, on behalf of Douglas Paterson and the local NFU Scotland, to the cabinet secretary to visit Orkney in the early part of next year to see first hand the damage...

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (6 Nov 2019)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: ...in the northern isles. He told all who would listen that the SNP would bring about fair funding “in the provision of ferries and ferry infrastructure”. Two years later, in 2016, a working group was established to consider how to deliver that promised fair funding—work that should have been done years before. Meanwhile, island representatives worked together, relentlessly pressing...
