Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) Maggie Morrison has nearly stolen my thunder by answering the question before I asked it.

We talked about the STEM subjects. I was at the University of the West of Scotland in Paisley not so long ago. It was, of course, a technical college in the past, and the heart and soul of the univer...

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) What has been the impact of the UK budget on Scottish airports, given that it failed to go far enough on air passenger duty?



Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP)

1. To ask the Scottish Government what preparations it is making to deal with the number of people expected to visit Scotland during the Commonwealth games. (S4O-03070)



Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
George Adam As the minister may know, Glasgow airport in Paisley will welcome many of the athletes and spectators, in effect making Paisley the gateway to the games. How are the Scottish Government and games organisers working with the airport to ensure a smooth journey for all users of the airport during the g...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) I welcome the debate, which is extremely important. It is one of those debates in which we always look positively towards the future—even if Duncan McNeil changed that. Although we all have different opinions, I do not doubt for a minute that every member believes that we must find a way to ensure t...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
George Adam I say to Ms Smith that I referred to making the transformational change to address child poverty. Things have improved under devolution, but we do not have the powers to make the transformational change that will take us to the next level and ensure that we can look after all our young people and gi...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
George Adam I cannot take an intervention, as I have been given only five minutes.

I am the convener of the cross-party group in the Scottish Parliament on multiple sclerosis. People with MS are going through the process for PIP, and one of the triggers for MS is being under pressure and strain. For ...

Education and Culture Committee 25 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 25, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) Good morning. I want to continue on objective justification. Professor Downes is quite right to say that we have much cultural commonality across the two countries. We have the same language and there is movement backwards and forwards between the two countries. We can understand why that will be th...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 19, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) Does the cabinet secretary share my disappointment that the Labour Party in Westminster is doing the political hokey-cokey by supporting an in/out referendum on EU membership? Does she agree that the only way to secure Scotland’s place in the EU is with a yes vote?



Education and Culture Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) Neil Bibby came out with a cheeky wee bit of alliteration when he referred to the “Tory teacher tax”, but part of the problem with this debate is that the Opposition parties are coming out with wee cheeky lines like that one without offering anything of substance. Once again, they demonstrate their ...
