Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Kezia Dugdale I cannot take the intervention.

I will try to end on a positive note, if I can. The child poverty strategy is for 2014 to 2017, so it will outlive the referendum, the next general election and this Parliament. We should remember that. The greatest service that we can do the strategy is to...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Kezia Dugdale I have 30 seconds left. I am sorry about that. I will take an intervention if the Presiding Officer will give me a minute more to close.



Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Kezia Dugdale I am afraid that I am in my final minute.

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014

I hope that, if the Minister for Children and Young People values the work that those organis...

Kezia Dugdale Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Kezia Dugdale Before the minister moves on to the Westminster agenda, how would she respond to CPAG, which today said that the Government’s child poverty strategy lacks an implementation plan? CPAG also said that it needed more information about how the strategy would be implemented across Government departments ...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) Will the minister use some of her time to respond to the concerns that the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities has expressed about the degree to which free school meals and the offer of 600 hours of nursery provision have not been funded appropriately?



Meeting of the Parliament 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
