Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) I welcome the debate as an opportunity not only to celebrate the 15th birthday of Glasgow the Caring City, but to highlight the charity’s achievements and raise its profile. I thank James Dornan for lodging the motion for us to discuss in the chamber; it is exactly the type of motion for which membe...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) Oh dear.



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) I long for the day when we can do what we do well: debate the issues that are important to the people in Scotland, instead of independence.

That said, Scottish Conservatives thank the Scottish Government for notice of the statement, which was issued to the media at 06:00 this morning.

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) I thank the cabinet secretary for the opportunity to debate increasing opportunities for women, which has been a constant theme in this Parliament since 1999.

The briefing from Engender states:

“In the sectors of Construction and Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing, the percenta...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Mary Scanlon I am familiar with the number of children who are born. The point that is worth recognising is that the Scottish Government’s figures have not been modelled and the SPICe briefing figures have. SPICe has done a proper economic analysis, and I rest my case on those figures.

The figures tha...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Mary Scanlon I have 40 seconds left.

The UK Children and Families Act 2014 allows more flexible working, and the International Monetary Fund has stated that the United Kingdom will be the fastest-growing economy in the G7. Taxpayers in Scotland, including women, also benefit from the rise in the perso...

Education and Culture Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) I thank the cabinet secretary for her clear introduction. I am looking at paragraph 6 of the policy note. Are you on course to have the new body’s leadership in place by six months before 1 October?



Education and Culture Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Mary Scanlon As a bit of a latecomer to the bill, I seek some clarity. As Liz Smith said, there seem to be real concerns, for example from the National Trust for Scotland and indeed the owners of private historic houses. The maintenance backlog will cost the National Trust £46 million, while the backlog for Hist...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) Yes or no?



Education and Culture Committee 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) I associate myself with the convener’s comments. I was not able to hear all the evidence—I have been a member of the committee only since March—but I totally agree that if we do not listen to people who have experienced care we will never get it right. I thank everyone for giving evidence, which I a...
