No, thank you.

I am pleased to be able to bring this debate to Parliament, and I welcome several members of the Cheyne Gang community singing group, who are in the public gallery.

I visited their rehearsals at Oxgangs library in December, when they were getting ready for their Christmas concert. The short time that I spent with them gave me the opportunity to hear at first hand from members how singing was helping to improve their health and provide an enjoyable social occasion. So much so that—on that occasion—they even persuaded me to sing along with the choir.
