Meeting of the Parliament 30 September 2014 : Tuesday, September 30, 2014
The Minister for External Affairs and International Development (Humza Yousaf)

The brutality of the so-called Islamic State, or Isil, is beyond question. The Scottish Government supports international efforts to support the people of Iraq, Syria and the wider middle ea...

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.

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.

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.
