Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson (Glasgow) (Con)

2. To ask the First Minister when he will next meet the Prime Minister. (S4F-02263)



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson Sir Ian Wood is the most respected business figure in the North Sea oil industry. For two and a half years in this debate, he has kept his own counsel; he has stayed studiously neutral. As he said yesterday, he had no wish to get involved. I have just heard all the chaff that the First Minister has ...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson With all due respect to the First Minister, that is not why Sir Ian Wood says that he felt the need at this critical time to speak out. Sir Ian has no worlds left to conquer and he is not trying to win any votes. He just wants the Scottish people to know the facts before they make what will be an ir...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson (Glasgow) (Con) Like many members in this chamber, I have made more speeches on the constitution in the past two and a half years than I can remember. I have made speeches in church halls, in town halls, in school halls and in conference halls. In every one, I have made the economic and political arguments for stay...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson I may be jeered or sneered at, as I am being today, but, looking around the world, I think that we are one of the good guys. We are one of the countries that others aspire to be like. From our art to our freedom, our humour, our decency, our sense of fair play and—yes—even our politics, we make a hu...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson It is not the fourth most unequal society in the world. Since 2010, inequality has been reducing—the member knows that because her own Government has stated that that is true.

Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) rose—



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson I want us to keep contributing to the world together, and I want to stand shoulder to shoulder with my friends, my family and my allies in England, in Wales and in Northern Ireland, too. I want us to continue to make that contribution.



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson There are people alive in the world today because Britain shoulders her share of the burden and because we act together. We are the second biggest giver of overseas aid on the planet. Children are saved by our immunisation programmes who would otherwise die. It is not that an independent Scotland wo...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson Not at this time.

Even here at home our research and medical expertise reach far beyond our borders. Because of the UK’s support structure nine out of 10 women and eight out of 10 men are surviving skin cancer, which is in part thanks to the work that is being done at the University of Du...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Ruth Davidson The world is a safer place because of our ability to act, and of course that ability must be used judiciously. There are people who are huddling on a mountainside in Iraq who have cause to thank us for using our troops to deliver them to safety. [Interruption.]
