Patrick Grady: ...Union; a United Kingdom that would guarantee people in Scotland freedom of movement for themselves and their goods, for their capital and their services, across the continent. We were told by no less than Ruth Davidson herself, the leader of the Scottish Conservatives, that the way for Scotland to stay in the European Union was to vote no in 2014, and that has been ripped like a rug from...

Ruth Davidson: 1. Michelle Stewart was murdered in the Ayrshire village of Drongan on 14 November 2008. She was 17 years old.

Scottish Parliament: Literacy and Numeracy (Standards) (21 Jun 2018)

Ruth Davidson: 1. This week, the education secretary patted himself on the back and declared that more than 90 per cent of pupils in secondary schools are reaching the required standards in literacy and numeracy.

Nicola Sturgeon: ...practice, the assessments are experienced by children as part of on-going learning and teaching activities in the classroom. They are appropriate to the age of the child, but, to go back to the question from Ruth Davidson that I answered earlier, they are important in making sure that we replace survey data on the performance of children with comprehensive data on the performance of...

Scottish Parliament: Access to Medicines (20 Jun 2018)

Annie Wells: ...Scotland. The Scottish Conservative Party has consistently called for both drugs to be available on the NHS.

Last week, Maurice Corry led a...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Alan Brown: ...plenty of other Government resignations. It is time for the Transport Secretary to consider his position, rather than awaiting the outcome of a review.

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Douglas Ross: ...to Holyrood; it wants them to go back to Europe. My final message to SNP Members today is: if they do not want these powers, Scottish Conservatives do, and after the next election in Scotland, Ruth Davidson will use these powers as First Minister of Scotland. The public can see that those who do not want and cannot use these powers need to be replaced, and the Scottish Conservatives are...

Scottish Parliament: Management of Offenders (14 Jun 2018)

Ruth Davidson: 1. Last week, I called on the First Minister to put on hold her plans to increase the number of criminals being tagged in the community rather than being kept in prison, and I want to return to that issue this week. Does she think that she has the confidence of victims and the wider public for those plans? (S5F-02449)

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal) Bil (14 Jun 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (6 Jun 2018)

David Linden: I have recently learned that the great saviour of the Tory party, and perhaps the next Prime Minister, Ruth Davidson, did not actually believe in the vow. Is it not the case that the chickens have come home to roost and that we are now seeing the anti-devolution party once again riding roughshod over Scotland?

Potholes and Road Maintenance (5 Jun 2018)

Douglas Ross: ...to the Minister for taking an intervention. Potholes do not stop at the border. In Scotland, where the Conservatives are not currently in charge of road maintenance—I hope that changes, with Ruth Davidson as First Minister—we have more than 153,000 potholes, so it is a problem no matter which Government are in charge. Does the Minister agree that my constituents in Moray would...

Sajid Javid: I am pleased that the hon. and learned Lady has raised that case, because it was also raised with me last week by the leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Ruth Davidson, who is also very concerned about it and has asked me to look into it. The hon. and learned Lady might know that there is an appeal going on with regard to Mr Darku, and I should not say too much about that. However, I am...

Scottish Parliament: Priorities (31 May 2018)

Ruth Davidson: 1. The First Minister is in every paper today for spending her time on social media, defending her independence blueprint from attacks by her own supporters. That is in a week in which we have seen rising waiting lists at hospitals, fewer young people from deprived backgrounds going to university and violent crime on the increase. Does the First Minister wonder why the people of Scotland...
