1. To ask the First Minister what engagements he has planned for the rest of the day. (S4F-02209)



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014

“Satisfaction with our NHS has increased by 20 per cent over the last seven years”

and that

“nearly two thirds of people in Scotland claim to be satisfied with our health serv...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Johann Lamont Dr Brian Keighley is a member of staff in the health service, so the First Minister ought to listen to what he is saying. He should not pick only one thing that Brian Keighley has said, but should reflect on everything that he says.

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Johann Lamont (Glasgow Pollok) (Lab)

1. To ask the First Minister what engagements he has planned for the rest of the day. (S4F-02188)



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Johann Lamont Could the First Minister give me an honest assessment of how our schools are doing?



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Johann Lamont I am glad that the First Minister mentioned that report, because I think that we should look at it in some detail. The Audit Scotland report paints a slightly different picture from what the First Minister has said. It said:
