Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : 23 April 2014
Christina McKelvie (Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse) (SNP) As colleagues on the Opposition benches must be aware by now, although they seem confused on several aspects of the debate, it was this SNP Government that introduced the living wage and not Labour, not even while the Labour leader Ms Lamont was a member of that Government. In fact, the last time La...

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie Can Michael McMahon tell us what currency the newest member state of Europe uses? It is not the euro.



Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie Scotland has been a friend of Europe for centuries. Let us rebuild that relationship and rekindle it by being a fully independent member of Europe.

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie As I said, we have manifestos coming up for 2016. If Miss Goldie wants a referendum on the EU and if the people of Scotland want it, we can go for it then. I do not think that they do want that, however, and Miss Goldie knows that.

If we were out of the EU, our farmers would lose their si...

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie I am sure that my friend and colleague Patrick Harvie will be happy to know that the European and External Affairs Committee has been discussing that very topic and that it may be on our agenda for future meetings, post-referendum.

Now, we are stretching forwards, looking to a future that...

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie Indeed. I am getting to the subject matter of the debate, Miss Goldie—have a wee bit of patience.

As I said, we are tired of being pulled into illegal wars and being told to run dawn raids on asylum seekers and send migrants back to their homelands, whatever the dangers for them there. Wi...

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
Christina McKelvie (Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse) (SNP) Can I suggest one wee mechanism of democracy to Annabel Goldie? If she wants an in-out referendum on Europe in 2016, she should maybe put that in a Tory manifesto for an independent Scotland in the election of 2016. That is maybe a way to go.

The people of Scotland are finally being heard...

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
The Convener We will have a conversation about that a wee bit later.

Are we happy to proceed as suggested?

Members indicated agreement.

10:25 Meeting continued in private until 11:20.

European and External Relations Committee 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
The Convener I highlight the issue of the transatlantic trade and investment partnership. We have had some representation to the committee on that, which we might pick up in the future to see how it pans out. It is quite a detailed agreement, with far-reaching consequences, both positive and possibly not so posi...
