Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Hugh Henry The minister has made choices, but she has turned her back on the poor.

Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Hugh Henry I will come to Mike MacKenzie in a moment.

The minister has said that the only issue she can deal with is the quality of housing, but what would happen if Scotland separated from the UK? The fact is that the Scottish Government wants to protect the energy companies’ profits and make the t...

Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
