Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
The Minister for External Affairs and International Development (Humza Yousaf) It is a privilege for me to close this debate on behalf of the Scottish Government and as a proud Glaswegian. I thank James Dornan for securing this precious parliamentary time and I fully endorse the motion in his name.

I join other members in the chamber in complimenting Glasgow the Ca...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
The Minister for External Affairs and International Development (Humza Yousaf) Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Humza Yousaf I do not take away anything from the good work that the UK Government has done; indeed, I have always been fair in giving it credit where credit is due. However, why are eight of the top 10 countries in the CDI, which Margaret McCulloch mentioned, small and independent countries of Scotland’s size? ...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Humza Yousaf Will the member give way on that point?



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Humza Yousaf The member seemed to suggest, perhaps inadvertently, that the UK was the first country to meet the 0.7 per cent target. That is not correct, of course. Small independent European countries met it before the UK. The UK is far behind in that respect.



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
The Minister for External Affairs and International Development (Humza Yousaf) The motion and the opening speech by Margaret McCulloch are nothing but an exercise in scaremongering, fear baiting and the politics of cynicism all rolled into one. However, the debate gives me, if nothing else, the opportunity to offer my assurances and reassurances once again on commitments that ...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Humza Yousaf I will not go into set-up costs. I have here, of course, the figure that the UK Government came up with when it came up with set-up costs, which is 12 times the cost that was estimated by Professor Patrick Dunleavy. Of course, his figure of between £150 million and £200 million for set-up costs was ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
The Minister for External Affairs and International Development (Humza Yousaf) It is customary to thank the member who has brought the debate to the chamber and, of course, I do that. I also thank him for securing cross-party support for the motion. However, I can say on behalf of the Government and possibly on behalf of the chamber that this is a debate that we would rather n...

Meeting of the Parliament 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
The Minister for External Affairs and International Development (Humza Yousaf) The Scottish Government condemns in the strongest possible terms the escalating cycle of violence, be it rocket attacks or air strikes in Gaza and Israel, and the disproportionate impact in particular on civilians in Gaza, who the United Nations estimates make up approximately 75 per cent of the Pal...

Meeting of the Parliament 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Humza Yousaf Yesterday, we spoke to the director of Medical Aid for Palestinians, which is an organisation working in Gaza that I know the member is aware of. We spoke to its director in Gaza, who is putting together a list of those who are in priority need of specialist care. That discussion is going on with th...
