Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (4 Oct 2022)

Paul McLennan: ...before that. The energy price cap has been set at an average of £2,500. I remind members that it was £1,100 in 2019. However, the £2,500 is an average, not a limit—perhaps someone should tell Liz Truss that, too. Recent studies show that 25 per cent of people in Scotland, and up to 35 per cent of single parent families, will not be putting the heating on this year. For context, that...

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (Support) (29 Sep 2022)

Christine Grahame: Since lodging my question, as the cabinet secretary said, the pressures on my constituents have been compounded by the terrifying economic policies of Liz Truss, with the value of the pound plummeting—which adds more cost to all imports, including food—and interest rates skyrocketing. Does the cabinet secretary therefore share my additional concerns for my rural constituents, who were...

Scottish Parliament: Cost Crisis (29 Sep 2022)

Elena Whitham: ...such as food, shelter and fuel. Does she agree that the Westminster Tory UK Government’s crashing of the economy can only make the situation worse, and that missing-in-action Prime Minister Liz Truss must ditch the policies from last week and think again?

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Winter Pressures) (29 Sep 2022)

Christine Grahame: The disastrous economic policies of Liz Truss—the lady has indicated that she is not for turning—pile even more pressure on folk who face terrifying energy bills. The pound is tumbling in value against the dollar and the euro, so every import, including food, becomes even more costly. Spiralling interest rates will increase credit card and mortgage payments. It is an economic tsunami,...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Times (28 Sep 2022)

Gillian Martin: ...have Tories anywhere near the decisions that affect it, whether here or at Westminster. I say to Tess White that only in an independent Scotland could we ensure that the reckless incompetence of Liz Truss and all her far-right hedge-fund lobbying pals—

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Population (27 Sep 2022)

Christine Grahame: ...falsehoods. I note that Donald Cameron, who is often consensual, referred to the commitment in the 2019 Scottish Tory manifesto to targeted migration. I do not, however, share his optimism that a Liz Truss Government will resuscitate that. In any event, she has her hands full with the economic chaos that she has brought about. Independence gives us that essential control over the...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Procedures and Practices (22 Sep 2022)

Emma Roddick: ...the House of Commons is—that is as the crow flies, before taking transport links into consideration. Presiding Officer, I represent people who are further away from where you are sitting than Liz Truss is during Prime Minister’s questions. I am sure that my colleagues, particularly my SNP colleagues, will understand why folk living in my region might not feel connected to decisions...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Exploration Licences (21 Sep 2022)

Mr Mark Ruskell: In her first week in Downing Street, Liz Truss has taken a wrecking ball to climate commitments. The UK Government is again pretending that it can drill its way out of the energy crisis, while the world is facing unimaginable suffering from climate breakdown. From Liz Truss’s installation of a fossil fuel fanatic as her energy secretary to her making no reference to climate in her first...

Scottish Parliament: Workers’ Rights (21 Sep 2022)

Colin Beattie: ...an employment bill. Does the minister agree that, given the Westminster Tory Government’s poor track record when it comes to protecting workers’ rights, coupled with the emergence of a Liz Truss Government that is intent on stripping away protections and power from unions while undermining workers, it is becoming ever more evident that the only way we can safeguard workers’ rights...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Transformation (21 Sep 2022)

Fiona Hyslop: ..., but we are in danger of leaching the rewards and benefits overseas to international shareholders instead of benefiting from jobs or cheaper energy—and that is likely to get worse under a Liz Truss led UK Government. The Scottish approach should be based on energy security for the future. We are and can be world leading as we build a just transition from oil and gas, using those skills...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, I have been trying to make sense of all this, as someone who never met Her late Majesty. My mother was seven years older than Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, but when I lost my own personal life anchor, when my mother died, I felt that I still had Her Majesty the Queen. Her late Majesty was the safest of a safe pair of hands. She was the most reliable of the people upon whom...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (9 Sep 2022)

Lord Bilimoria: ...in front of Buckingham Palace, stepped out and handed over the baton to its first relay holder. It went all around the world, across all the Commonwealth countries and territories. Prime Minister Liz Truss described the Queen as the rock of the nation over seven decades. Republics do not have this advantage that we have. Presidents change regularly; we have had continuity for 70...

Climate Change and Biodiversity: Food Security - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2022)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...new BEIS Secretary of State, and a new Defra Secretary of State. We are all anxious to know what their plans are for the environment. I have to say that, so far, it is not looking good. Of course, Liz Truss has been the Defra Secretary of State before, so I was keen to see what she made of it last time. I googled her record. In the two years that she held the post she never made one...

Primary and Community Care: Improving Patient Outcomes - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2022)

Lord Farmer: ..., measures to tackle rural loneliness and disadvantage and intergenerational opportunities. A Cabinet-level Minister needs to co-ordinate these across government, backed by the new Prime Minister. Liz Truss pioneered this in government when she commissioned my review into the importance of prisoners’ family ties to prevent re-offending and intergenerational crime. She has also promised...

Horizon Europe - Question (8 Sep 2022)

the Earl of Clancarty: ...than the Minister has. It says: “UK membership of Horizon Europe would be a win-win for both the UK and EU.” Will this Government continue to support the words of the then Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss? Will they hold their nerve to achieve that goal, whatever temporary blockage there may be?

Scottish Parliament: Nuclear Power and Fracking (8 Sep 2022)

Bill Kidd: At Prime Minister’s question time yesterday, we heard Liz Truss advocating her belief that nuclear power and now fracking have a role in abating the energy crisis. I know that the commitment of the Tories to the transformational changes needed to achieve net zero is wafer thin, just as I know that the Scottish Government’s position on those matters is clear. What is the First Minister’s...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government (Cost of Living) (7 Sep 2022)

Elizabeth Smith: ...on that point. The member is quite right to say that the issue affects quite a lot of constituents. It was also good to hear at lunch time much more about the direction of travel for the new Truss Government when it comes to additional support. In particular, I want to welcome the acknowledgement that what is happening now is on the scale of the pandemic. Most of the economic analysts this...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2022-23 (6 Sep 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...should. If they did, we could have acted already—but they do not. These powers are, for now, reserved to Westminster. A new UK Prime Minister has, of course, just been appointed. I congratulate Liz Truss and wish her well. Our political differences are significant but, as with the previous three Prime Ministers, I will work hard to establish a good working relationship. I have today...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2022-23 (6 Sep 2022)

Douglas Ross: ...woefully short of rising to the big challenges that we all face here in Scotland, across the United Kingdom and around the world. I join the First Minister in congratulating our new Prime Minister, Liz Truss. Although the Prime Minister has changed, sadly it is the same First Minister repeating her old mantra of directing blame elsewhere and seeking grievance with the UK Government, rather...
