Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) It was interesting that James Dornan said that he could speak for half an hour about this subject—and I am sure that Hanzala Malik could speak for double that—because that is a mark of how much Glasgow the Caring City has achieved in the 15 years since it was set up. I say happy birthday and thank y...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) Normally in a members’ business debate, I would thank the member for lodging the motion and support it. I could not do that today because there are things that are very wrong with the motion. Two statements in the motion, in particular, are completely erroneous; one is about the job losses in East K...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Linda Fabiani Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) In relation to the change fund, which is accessed by the NHS and local authorities, and homecare, which is provided by local authorities and the third sector, the cabinet secretary will be aware from his recent visit to Hairmyres hospital that there are discharge delays because homecare packages hav...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) It gives me great pleasure to hold the debate on the motion entitled “East Kilbride has Real Heroes”, which East Kilbride certainly does. We are having the debate because of STV’s Scotland’s real heroes awards, which are sponsored by the Royal Bank of Scotland.

I would like to say a few w...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) I have just two questions, because I am aware of the time constraints.

Minister, you will be aware that the committee has had great difficulty in convincing the appropriate Westminster ministers and cabinet secretaries to come to speak to us. Although it is always nice to see you here and...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani As I said, it is nice to have you here, but I still contend that less a day’s notice is not an acceptable level of respect for our convener or committee.

Leading on from what you have just said, I am glad that you have been very much involved because I think that I am right in saying that...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani Can I suggest to you that those are consequences of the development of policy? What I am really interested in is the level of engagement that the Scotland Office has had with the policy development of welfare reform, in that it has a responsibility, to some degree, to protect the people of Scotland ...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani Perhaps the minister could accompany Lord Freud along to this committee at some point in the future.



Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) I have just one question—it is a very general one. I was interested in the last point in your key points summary, Professor Fothergill, which Jamie Hepburn referred to. It is the point that

“In the absence of a big shift into employment, a key effect of the welfare reforms will be to wide...
