Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing (Mid Scotland and Fife) (SNP) A minute ago, you mentioned that children should be part of working families. I do not think that anyone would disagree with that objective. However, I presume that the overriding objective is for children to be part of a family that has the means to put food on the table.



Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing Of course, in an independent Scotland, we will not preside over the dismantling of the welfare system and the safety net that it provides.

I want to consider an appalling statistic. Of all the alarming developments that this committee has considered, the most shocking has to be the fact t...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing This issue has to be at the centre of our discussions, because it is truly appalling. I do not agree with the idea that, because a child attends a food bank only once, that is somehow acceptable. It is simply not acceptable.

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing I know that time is short, and I want to ask about how people with long-term conditions, including mental health problems, are dealt with under the benefits system, particularly with regard to the work capability assessment.

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing I will read out a question from one of the witnesses who bravely came to the committee to give evidence a while back.

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing There are no words. Thank you, convener.



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : 25 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing (Mid Scotland and Fife) (SNP) Can the minister confirm how much the Scottish Government has invested in the Scotland’s schools for the future programme, notwithstanding the swingeing Westminster cuts that have been made to Scotland’s budget?



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : 25 June 2014
Annabelle Ewing (Mid Scotland and Fife) (SNP) I congratulate Liz Smith on securing the debate and giving us the opportunity to mark the centenary of Perth royal infirmary. In so doing, I pay tribute to the care that doctors, nurses and all the other staff of PRI have provided to the people of Perth, Perthshire and neighbouring Kinross-shire dow...
