Scottish Parliament: Cambridge Analytica (19 Apr 2018)

Ruth Davidson: 1. No representative of the Scottish Conservative Party or consultant who works for it has ever met the disgraced data-harvesting company Cambridge Analytica or its parent company. [Interruption.] The Scottish National Party does not like it, but, if the question was good enough for Ian Blackford to ask at Prime Minister’s questions, it is good enough for me to ask at First...

Scottish Parliament: Historical Sexual Offences (Pardons and Disregards) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (18 Apr 2018)

Annie Wells: ...are still criminalised in 72 countries across the world. I reiterate my support for the bill at stage 1. Its importance, for the people who are affected and as a marker of progress in societal attitudes, cannot be overestimated. As Ruth Davidson helpfully put it, this is one jigsaw piece in the fight for true LGBTI equality, but it is a very large one.

Scottish Parliament: Economic Growth (29 Mar 2018)

Ruth Davidson: The rate of economic growth in Scotland is a third of the rate in the UK as a whole. Also, the Scottish National Party’s economic plan has been lost in the weeds thanks to a myriad of different strategies, advisory groups and bodies that are now cluttering the landscape. Does the First Minister think that those two facts are connected?

Scottish Parliament: Seasonal Migrant Labour (Agriculture) (29 Mar 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...in the chamber look at their feet—[ Interruption .]—or they make lots of noise just to try to hide their deep embarrassment at what is happening. The lesson of at least the last year—perhaps Ruth Davidson might want to listen to this—is that we cannot trust a single word that Michael Gove says. When his press releases are co-authored by Ruth Davidson, we clearly...

Scottish Parliament: Food Banks (29 Mar 2018)

...poverty, hitting families who are in work and families who are out of work. The Resolution Foundation estimates that the UK Government’s policies will leave the poorest third of—[ Interruption .] Ruth Davidson is chatting away, but she might want to listen to this. The Resolution Foundation estimates that the UK Government’s policies will leave the poorest third of...

Scottish Parliament: Devolved Powers (Negotiations) (29 Mar 2018)

...sectors would also be allayed if we were to stay in the single market and the customs union. I still hope that we can find consensus that unites us around that issue. What gives me hope is that I know that Ruth Davidson used to believe it, because the week after the referendum, I think, she challenged me in the chamber to protect our membership of the single market. If she can find it...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Apprenticeship Week (29 Mar 2018)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: ...that the Scottish Government is committed to increasing the choice for young people in Scotland’s remote and rural communities, and I look forward to further news on that being rolled out. During apprenticeship week, my colleague Ruth Davidson called for the expansion of foundation apprenticeships to every secondary school. That solid ambition would begin to address, at an earlier...

Scottish Parliament: City Region Deals (27 Mar 2018)

Brian Whittle: ...that triumvirate of councils throughout the process, while watching other deals seemingly jump the queue. With regard to the UK Government, I have been speaking regularly with the Scottish Office, as well as encouraging Ruth Davidson and Murdo Fraser to push the case for the Ayrshire growth deal every time they are at Westminster, which they have been doing. I invited Greg Clark MP to meet...

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Ian Blackford: ...the conclusions on the UK’s fishing rights post Brexit? Last week, fishing communities across Scotland were left in the dark as their industry was bargained away by this Government. Why were the Secretary of State for Scotland and Ruth Davidson permitted to issue a statement on 11 March that we would have control of our fishing grounds for this to be reversed only a week later? What...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Kirstene Hair: ...the EU and out of the CFP so that our fishing industry can flourish again. The SNP Scottish Government want to fail coastal Scotland again by taking us back into the EU and back into the CFP. The truth is clear. While the rest of the United Kingdom shares the fruits of successful Conservative policies, Scotland stagnates under the SNP. If anyone wants to know about the SNP’s...

Scottish Parliament: Attainment Gap (Schools) (22 Mar 2018)

Ruth Davidson: 1. Examination result data for every secondary school in Scotland has been published in recent days. Once again, we have learned of the stark gaps in attainment for rich and poor areas. Attend a school where the vast majority of pupils are from the most deprived backgrounds, and only 15 per cent achieve five or more highers. Go to a school where the vast majority of pupils are from the most...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Negotiations (Fishing) (22 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the First Minister aware of the very real anger among fishermen, fishing communities and people right across Scotland that, after being promised last week by Ruth Davidson that the common fisheries policy would not apply once we left the European Union, we find that we have surrendered at UK level and that in 2020, the CFP will apply without the UK, fishermen or authorities having any say...

Scottish Parliament: Attainment Scotland Fund (22 Mar 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: I am tempted to give the same reasons that I gave to Ruth Davidson just a few minutes ago. However, our commitment is to invest £750 million over this session of Parliament, and that is exactly what we will do. In 2015-16, spending through the attainment Scotland fund stood at less than £6 million—I think that I said £10 million to Ruth Davidson earlier—while in the...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (22 Mar 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Mar 2018)

Drew Hendry: Last week, the Agriculture and Fisheries Secretary and Ruth Davidson said: “The Prime Minister has been clear: Britain will leave the CFP as of March 2019.” Now, the UK is staying in the common fisheries policy but with no say on quotas—the worst deal imaginable. What changed between last week and this week?

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Mar 2018)

Michael Russell: ...endeavour to define that phrase in a way that the courts would be happy with. However, while the language in amendment 14 is imprecise, the intention is precise enough. If this is—as it might be—the manifesto for making Ruth Davidson the First Minister in 2021, it is absolutely clear what the Tories want to do: to make every action of this chamber subject to a decision of the...
