Anne McTaggart (Glasgow) (Lab) As a member of the Local Government and Regeneration Committee, I have had ample opportunity to consider in detail the proposals in the bill and the subsequent amendments to it. I would once again like to thank Dennis Robertson for bringing this important issue to the attention of the Scottish Parli...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Anne McTaggart (Glasgow) (Lab) That sounds like an excellent idea.

On community planning, paragraph 112 of the report mentions:

“Community planning is at a crossroads ... Barriers stand in the way”.

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Anne McTaggart I agree with your proposed action, convener.



Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Anne McTaggart I would prefer that it be left open until after the referendum.



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Anne McTaggart (Glasgow) (Lab)

8. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking in response to the reported 22 per cent increase in homophobic hate crimes in the last year. (S4O-03398)



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Anne McTaggart In the past 12 months, there has been a 12 per cent rise in disability hate crime and a 3 per cent rise in racial abuse.
