Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
James Dornan

As the minister mentioned, I visited Malawi recently. At Matindi primary school, I was lucky enough to see a fantastic example of the work that Mary’s Meals does throughout the country. That project is supported by Holyrood secondary school, which is my old school, and Langside primary school, which is in my constituency. How is the Government ensuring that those links continue to flourish? Does he agree that those links, which primarily benefit the children of Malawi, are also of huge importance to pupils from Scotland who have the privilege to assist in those projects?



Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
5. James Dornan (Glasgow Cathcart) (SNP)

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the work it is supporting in Malawi. (S4O-04055)



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

It has been suggested that the bill could have unintended consequences that would have a detrimental effect on the resources that are available to support people with other communication needs. Does the panel have a view on that? Could other forms of communication be negatively affected by the proposals in the bill? If so, in what way?



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

Possibly through the bill?



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

Does that suggest that there is a need for some kind of move on highlighting the importance of deafblind communicators?



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

So you do not see it as a straightforward issue.



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

Okay. I will take you on to another question. Should the bill include specific reference to the needs of deafblind BSL users and, if so, in what way?



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

Would you need some kind of security around the fact that resources would not be diverted from other services?



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

Can I just clarify that? Are you saying that BSL plays a minority role in terms of the services that you provide? Correct me if I am wrong, but the panel suggested that BSL was the largest part of those services.



Education and Culture Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
James Dornan

Do you think that separating BSL is a possible result of the bill? Would it not just be that you would have to monitor it?
