Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) It is only right that we discuss in Scotland’s Parliament the Edinburgh international festival and the other important cultural events that are taking place this summer.

I hope that we will consider the importance of festivals to our country and its artistic and cultural life. We should ...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Patricia Ferguson This has been an interesting debate and it has been worth our while to hear colleagues talk about what interests them and what is happening in their local areas.

I add my thanks to all the staff of Glasgow Life and Glasgow City Council who worked so hard to make festival 2014 such a succe...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on the humanitarian disaster that is the unfolding tragedy in Gaza. I am sure that members across the chamber will join me in thanking our colleague Drew Smith for securing the chance for Parliament to debate this most serious and deadly conflict.


Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Patricia Ferguson I shall do, Presiding Officer.

Pressure must be brought on the Israeli Government to change its long-term strategy as regards Gaza and the Palestinian people. The United Kingdom Government must not be complicit in breaches of the fourth Geneva convention. We must agree with the STUC’s cal...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) I am delighted with the announcement that the cabinet secretary made about the facility in Largs. As she knows, I have had a keen interest in disability sport for a long time. It is entirely fitting that we take that step, building on what happened at the Commonwealth games and recognising that, alt...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Patricia Ferguson I assure the member that, although on occasion I might have been a little tired after a nine-hour shift, I did not feel that the work was too difficult or too hard. Then again, I did not have the responsibility of the foam finger.



Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Patricia Ferguson I am really starting to feel sorry for George Adam, given that he did not have any tickets for the games, but did he apply?



Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Patricia Ferguson Follow that, if you will. Jackson Carlaw’s comments about the experience of Glasgow and about Glasgow being an inclusive city are right. He is also right to say that we need to begin the sporting experience in our primary schools. I go further than that and suggest that we need to begin that in our ...

Meeting of the Parliament 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) At the beginning of July, Pope Francis celebrated mass in Rome to commemorate the early martyrs of the church who were persecuted in the first century AD during Emperor Nero’s reign. During his homily, the holy father reflected on the fact that there are more Christian martyrs today than there were ...
