Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) I, too, thank committee members, and indeed the clerks, who do the work behind the scenes.

When we last met to discuss the bill, I expressed my frustration at the rules that preclude members who represent an area from participating in a private bill process that affects that area. I was w...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Kezia Dugdale It is our last day of term but, instead of getting out the board games, we are here discussing a very important issue. It is worth pointing out how full the public gallery is. I welcome a number of community councillors, the chair of the Portobello for a new school—PFANS—campaign and a number of PFA...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) The cabinet secretary is right. Attainment is improving, and it is improving for care leavers, but only at half the pace that it is for all other schoolchildren. What specific work is the cabinet secretary doing to improve the educational attainment of looked-after children across Scotland?

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) Labour has long argued that the Scottish National Party’s obsession with hitting the target of 25,000 modern apprenticeships has come at the expense of meeting the economy’s skills needs. Does the Wood commission’s renewed focus on MAs at level 3 or above, tied to growth industries, prove that we we...

Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) Johann Lamont has established well the case for why the best future for Scotland is one in which its devolved public services are delivered by the Scottish Parliament but are backed by the security and stability of the United Kingdom. My colleague Iain Gray has collated all the substantial evidence ...

Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Kezia Dugdale I am merely making the point that that is how undecided voters look at the debate. They are trying to get their heads around the finances, but Mark McDonald’s side’s sums do not add up—and they do not add up to the size of the entire schools budget. That is where the size and security of the UK come...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab)

1. To ask the Scottish Government how it supports victims of rape in Edinburgh and the Lothians. (S4O-03346)



Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Kezia Dugdale I thank the cabinet secretary for mentioning Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre. Is she aware of the extent of the cuts that the centre is facing, which are threatening essential front-line support services? The centre is now relying heavily on donations to stay afloat. Will she meet the...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) In the context of the transport advice that the Scottish Government gives to local authorities, does the minister agree with SNP councillor and head of economic development Frank Ross that extending the Edinburgh trams is “a no-brainer”?



Meeting of the Parliament 05 June 2014 : Thursday, June 05, 2014
Kezia Dugdale (Lothian) (Lab) Will the cabinet secretary give way?
