Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab) The IPCC report follows the Committee on Climate Change report of last week, which highlighted that, under current plans, it will be difficult to achieve our world-leading emission targets. Given that we have already missed our first two emissions targets, which makes the job ahead much more difficu...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 March 2014 : 25 March 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab) I congratulate David Torrance on providing this opportunity to debate Asda’s community life programme. I take the opportunity to welcome Jean Ritchie and Stephen Gallagher to the gallery and commend the work that they and staff in the Kirkcaldy store have done to ensure the programme’s success in th...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2014 : 20 March 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab)

3. To ask the Scottish Government when it last met NHS Fife and what issues were discussed. (S4O-03039)



Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2014 : 20 March 2014
Claire Baker Sadly, this is not the first time that I have raised concerns about Victoria hospital in Kirkcaldy. The inspection report from Healthcare Improvement Scotland last week said that improvements must be made to care for older people

“as a matter of priority”.

I know that the minis...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 March 2014 : 13 March 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab) Last week was climate week, although I am sure that the minister will agree that, looking at business in the chamber this week, it feels like this is climate week in Parliament. Climate week is an event aimed at inspiring action to be taken throughout Britain to tackle climate change.

We ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : 12 March 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab) Poor air quality is a daily experience for too many people in Scotland. Those who live, work or go to school or nursery in streets with high levels of air pollution will feel an impact on their health, and that impact will be all the greater for those with on-going medical conditions.

Our...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : 12 March 2014
Claire Baker The experience in communities is that what has happened is leading to fewer routes and higher fares. That is working against the policy that encourages people into buses, and buses are still the poor neighbours of trains in respect of public subsidy, although they have more passengers.

Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : 12 March 2014
Claire Baker Will the member take an intervention?



Meeting of the Parliament 11 March 2014 : 11 March 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab) I share members’ disappointment at the lack of progress in the mackerel negotiations. I wish the cabinet secretary well in the negotiations that start tomorrow. Has he had any discussions with the Marine Conservation Society, which currently classes British, European and Norwegian mackerel yellow wh...

Meeting of the Parliament 11 March 2014 : 11 March 2014
Claire Baker (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Lab) I thank the cabinet secretary for the advance copy of his statement. I agree with him that it is completely unacceptable for the UK Government not to have informed the Scottish Government of the episode, just as it is unacceptable for it not to have informed the UK Parliament.

This is a m...
