Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) I thank Bob Doris for securing this debate, which is about an important initiative in the Royston area of my Maryhill and Springburn constituency, and for highlighting many of the other good things that are happening in my constituency.

The next two years are exciting ones for Royston, wi...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Patricia Ferguson I was reflecting on the member’s comments about the need to include business in such discussions. However, I am also conscious of the fact that, often, regeneration has to happen because business has departed, sometimes leaving devastation in its wake—or, worse, contamination, which then has to be c...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) I thank the Education and Culture Committee for its considered report, which raises a number of important issues that we do well to consider today. Like Stewart Maxwell, I may not be able to cover all the points I would wish to make in my opening speech, but as I have the opportunity to close, too, ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Patricia Ferguson The debate has been very interesting, if short. It has been particularly interesting to hear the comments of colleagues who are on the committee, as they have obviously had the work of taking the bill forward and the interesting task of listening to the witnesses who have come forward and the eviden...

Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) I congratulate my colleague Sarah Boyack on securing this debate about one of the world’s worst industrial accidents. I apologise to you and to members, Presiding Officer, because I will have to leave when I have concluded my speech.

As we have heard, more than 1,100 people lost their liv...

Meeting of the Parliament 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) As we celebrate refugee week Scotland 2014 and its theme of welcome, I am pleased to have the opportunity to close this important debate on behalf of the Scottish Labour Party.

Labour acknowledges the positive contribution made by the Scottish Refugee Council to the lives of asylum seeker...

Meeting of the Parliament 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Patricia Ferguson I certainly would, and it was a source of great regret to many of us that no other local authority stepped up to the plate and offered to take part in that particular scheme. Perhaps if it were to be recreated, which unfortunately does not look likely, others might join in.

A great deal r...

Meeting of the Parliament 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Patricia Ferguson Thank you, Presiding Officer.

Lebanon has seen a 25 per cent increase in its population because of asylum seekers from Syria. We could surely do more.

Asylum seekers and refugees have proved themselves to be an asset and not a liability. Scottish Labour believes, with members a...

European and External Relations Committee 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Patricia Ferguson (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (Lab) I am the MSP for Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn.



European and External Relations Committee 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Patricia Ferguson I must admit that I have always been intrigued by how people in Scotland would be better served by having human rights obligations enshrined in a constitution, because they are already enshrined in everything that we do. This Parliament cannot pass legislation that is not compliant. I would like to ...
