Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Neil Bibby (West Scotland) (Lab)

3. To ask the Scottish Government how widely it estimates zero-hours contracts are used. (S4O-03088)



Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Neil Bibby Until recently, my younger brother was employed on a zero-hours contract, and I know from speaking to him the pressures and difficulties that such contracts can place on people who are trying to pay the bills from one week to the next.

The minister will be aware that Labour is calling fo...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby (West Scotland) (Lab) I want to ask Jackie Brock a question about the written evidence from Children in Scotland. You have asked for further evidence from the Scottish Government on costings and other details around the childcare policies in the white paper. Can you expand on those issues and on the other details that yo...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby There has been a lot of discussion about the economic benefits of childcare and getting more women, in particular, back to the workplace. Is anyone on the panel aware of any modelling that has been done on whether simply providing childcare will lead to an increase in jobs for women, other than in t...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby Okay—that is fine. I was talking about the policies that are proposed in the white paper. There is nothing specific on that.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby An increase in women’s employment would obviously increase taxation, but my question is whether there is modelling that shows that providing childcare increases employment. There is a difference.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby Clare Simpson mentioned putting out-of-school care for children on a statutory footing. I believe that, in England, such care has been on a statutory footing since the Childcare Act 2006. Why is it important that Scotland should have similar legislation, and why has the Scottish Government shied awa...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby That is not what I said when I asked my question. I wanted to know where the modelling is to suggest that an increase in childcare would provide an increase in jobs.



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby On the issue of schools preparing young people for employability and business opportunities, you mentioned the Ian Wood report earlier, and you have spoken about local good practice. The report mentions school business partnerships in areas such as Renfrewshire. Could you explain a wee bit more abou...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Neil Bibby I welcome the work that is being done by Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce and Renfrewshire Council. I hope that it can be replicated in other parts of the country.

I have a more general question. The committee has recently focused a lot on careers advice and preparing young people for fut...
