Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs (Roseanna Cunningham) While problem gambling levels are relatively low, affecting 0.7 per cent of the population, we recognise the serious impacts on those involved and their families.

Gambling is a reserved matter. However, the Scottish Government shares the widespread concern about the impact of the introduc...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Roseanna Cunningham I am aware of the report in the Greenock Telegraph. As I indicated in my first response, our ability to address the issue is significantly restricted by the current constitutional arrangements. Although we can set conditions for premises, we are not permitted to intrude on reserved matters and there...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs (Roseanna Cunningham) I welcome the opportunity to remind members that the proposals for rationalising the sheriff court structure are part of a wider set of reforms to create a modern justice system that better meets the needs of the people of Scotland, including those in the south of Scotland. The wider reforms, both c...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Roseanna Cunningham As if the Scottish Court Service had not actually thought about that and said already that it will accommodate as much as it can changing the times of cases to ensure that people who are required to attend can get to them.

I will just say something about the situation that we are in. Some...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs (Roseanna Cunningham) As other members have done, I welcome the opportunity that Elaine Murray has provided for further debate on police and fire control rooms. I congratulate her on getting through her speech despite the obvious difficulties that she was having with her voice.

I listened with interest to the ...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Roseanna Cunningham That might be true, but it is important that we keep in mind that the control-room function operates on the basis of the figures that I have given. That is unsustainable, particularly when budgets are under pressure.

Police Scotland is still involved in statutory consultation with the aff...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Roseanna Cunningham As Lewis Macdonald knows well, it is not my job as a minister to put myself in the place of the chief constable and senior officers of Police Scotland and to micromanage their decision-making process for them.

Police and fire services have been bold enough to tackle difficult challenges h...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Roseanna Cunningham I have taken enough interventions.

I repeat what I said in a similar debate last month: in any change programme decisions will be made that cannot please everyone. Elaine Murray usefully reminded us that Labour supported the move to the single services, but it seems that its idea of singl...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2014 : Thursday, March 20, 2014
The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs (Roseanna Cunningham) Section 11 of the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012 requires the Scottish ministers to report to Parliament on the act’s operation over two full football seasons. The Government has commissioned an independent evaluation of the operation of section 1,...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 March 2014 : Thursday, March 20, 2014
Roseanna Cunningham I do not profess to be an expert on football, but even I know that this year’s football season will not be over until the end of May. That means that the research is still on-going; it will cover the second full football season of the act’s operation. The legislation provided for that approach, whic...
