Education and Culture Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Clare Adamson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I echo Liam McArthur’s support for the bill and I, too, reference the beautiful, sunny trip to Orkney that we had. I appreciate the complexity of the situation in Orkney, but I feel that the nature of the process of getting the right candidate will mean that it will get people who understand the com...

Education and Culture Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Clare Adamson Once again, I agree with Liam McArthur’s intention behind amendment 2. I had a query about what is meant by local communities, but the cabinet secretary has explained the complexities in defining the expression. I listened carefully to what she said and I intend to support amendment 11 rather than a...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Clare Adamson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I am pleased to have been called to speak in the debate this afternoon. Scotland is simply one of the most exciting places in the world to be this year. As someone who enjoyed the ydance youth festival during the Commonwealth games and George R R Martin at the book festival, I pay tribute to the tre...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Clare Adamson (Central Scotland) (SNP) On 18 September, the Scottish people will be given a chance to vote and to answer the question: should Scotland be an independent nation? The yes camp have made a very positive case for why Scotland should indeed be an independent nation. The other camp—the better together camp—have just given us a ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Clare Adamson No, thank you.

What I question most is how we can possibly be better together in a country whose overriding economic trend is towards wider inequality, which means a lack of social mobility, low wages, low productivity and an economic model that will lead to a less prosperous country.

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Clare Adamson No, thank you.

On 14 July this year, the BBC radio programme “Analysis” broadcast an episode called “The End of the Pay Rise?” The information on the programme states:

“Something strange has been happening in the British economy. For over six years now, wages have fallen for mo...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Clare Adamson No, thank you.

In the USA, real earnings for median, full-time workers were no higher in 2013 than they were in 1979. If we continue on the road to a low-productivity, low-wage economy and inequality in the UK, we will end up in the position of the US. I ask the question again: better tog...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Clare Adamson Is better together simply content to continue to spend billions of pounds on Trident?



Education and Culture Committee 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Clare Adamson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I thank the witnesses. I think that it was Thomas Timlin who said that it was a privilege and an honour to be here. Throughout this whole process, it has been a privilege and an honour for me to work with the people at Who Cares? Scotland. Thank you for once again informing our process.

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Clare Adamson (Central Scotland) (SNP) The report is exceptionally detailed and very helpful. I appreciate how busy the members of the Committee of the Regions are on our behalf and the amount of travel that they have to do. The report is great, but maybe at some point we could have a round-table discussion with the members of the Commit...
