Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Hugh Henry (Renfrewshire South) (Lab) Will the cabinet secretary consider requests for a funded support service for those affected and will he ensure patient involvement in any such group, which he acknowledged is vital? These women deserve our support.

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
The Convener You mentioned that you will be doing some work on ALEOs. The committee has considered them previously and I suspect that we will want to return to the matter.

One thing that has concerned us is that those who are on the ALEOs do not always have a clear understanding of the governance arra...
