Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) (Lab) I am glad that the First Minister has moved on from the early scares about privatising the health service in Scotland and from the earlier misinformation about privatised services costing less money. However, now that he has moved on to charging, does he not realise that the reason why Labour is say...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) (Lab) I congratulate Margaret McCulloch on securing this important motion; I also commend her for her concern for jobs in her constituency.

It is not terribly well known throughout Scotland—less well known than it is in East Kilbride, obviously—how many DFID jobs there are in East Kilbride. Ne...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm I do not take away from the contribution of small countries, and I indicated my hope that an independent Scotland would do that, too.

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) (Lab) Forced to change his narrative every time he opens his mouth, will the cabinet secretary now confirm that yes campaigners are being mendacious when they say all over Scotland that the Scottish NHS would be privatised following a no vote and ill-informed when they say that privatised services cost le...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) (Lab) Iain Gray began his speech by quoting Einstein, to the effect that

“The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.”

To be perfectly honest, and at the risk of being expelled from the Finance Committee, I think that the hardest thing in the world to understand i...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) (Lab)

1. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will make a statement about the consequences for the NHS of a no vote and a yes vote in the referendum. (S4O-03451)



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm Will the cabinet secretary repudiate the disgraceful scares about NHS privatisation following a no vote, especially when the only evidence that he could produce last week at question time was a notional efficiency saving of 0.8 per cent of the English health budget, which even the Department of Heal...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm This is the final bit of my question—if Scottish National Party members have calmed down. Is he not ashamed when a 0.8 per cent efficiency saving, which will not materialise—



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm —is far less than the cabinet secretary himself spends on privatised services, or than the 3 per cent efficiency savings that he demands of health boards every year?



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm There will be bigger cuts under independence.
