Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Neil Findlay I would welcome a Scottish Government debate on that.



Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Neil Findlay (Lothian) (Lab) One area in which there is an issue to do with margins is social care, in which disgracefully low wages are paid to people who do some of the most important work in our society. That is an issue about the wholesale underfunding of social care.



Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Neil Findlay (Lothian) (Lab) On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Given the significance of what the cabinet secretary has said, would not it have been more relevant for him to come and make a statement to Parliament?



Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Neil Findlay (Lothian) (Lab) I am glad that George Adam mentioned St Mirren—I was surprised that he did, of course.

Across Europe, mental illness is one of the top public health challenges, with depression alone responsible for more than 13 per cent of the disability burden,...

Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Neil Findlay (Lothian) (Lab) Should we, at the same time, celebrate the closure of dozens of police stations and the sacking of hundreds of police support staff? Should we celebrate those one year on?



Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Neil Findlay (Lothian) (Lab) Given the minister’s obvious enthusiasm for community ownership, will he have a chat with the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth and ask him to divert some of the grants for the commercial development of wind farms into substantial grants for community ownership of rene...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Neil Findlay We have MPs representing us at Westminster. They have influence over policy, they debate policy, they discuss policy and they vote on policy. That must have passed Mr Brodie by.

We now have a choice. We can choose the positive Labour case for enhanced devolution within the UK, whereby we ...
