Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) We know that the cabinet secretary is dissatisfied with the process of the legislation. Is he content with the content of the legislation?



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) Of course, it is to be welcomed that the numbers of women in employment have increased and that the levels of female inactivity have fallen. However, it would be wrong to be complacent about the figures, and searching questions need to be asked about the detail. How many of those women are on zero-h...

Justice Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) I want to explore the issue of localism, particularly relationships with local authorities and community planning partnerships and so on across Scotland. As you may or may not know, I represent Dumfriesshire, where there has certainly been a feeling that there has been a lack of consultation between...

Justice Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Elaine Murray In my locality the lack of consultation on the closure of the control rooms and so on has been a contributing factor.

I am dealing with ...

Justice Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Elaine Murray Two concerns that have been raised about Police Scotland are, first, that it is becoming increasingly target driven and, secondly, that the methods of operation of the former Strathclyde Police are being rolled out across Scotland. Have you heard those concerns? Is there any justification for them?<...

Justice Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Elaine Murray What about the feeling that Police Scotland is Strathclyde Police writ large?



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) As others have said, the major festivals, such as those that are taking place in Edinburgh, are world famous and attract visitors from across the globe, contributing many millions to the national economy. However, like others, I point out that it is not just on the international stage where festival...

Justice Committee 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) I am the deputy convener of the committee.



Justice Committee 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Elaine Murray My interest is similar to that which was expressed by John Finnie. I have the impression that head injury among children and young people might result in problems further down the line. I wonder whether more could be done on recording when young people have had a head injury and to raise awareness a...
