Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Aileen McLeod (South Scotland) (SNP) I am delighted to speak in the debate and to set out the reasons why I want to see Scotland’s future decided by the people who live and work in Scotland. That can be assured only with a yes vote on 18 September.

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
