Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab)

6. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to support older people who live alone. (S4O-03456)



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Sarah Boyack A key fear of many of my constituents, and of older people in general, is the prospect of being stuck in hospital once they have had treatment without access to the right care or rehabilitation services that they need to lead an independent and good-quality life at home.

On Tuesday the ca...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) I welcome the debate. I will focus on Edinburgh and the importance of our festivals to our culture and economy. The Edinburgh international festival was established in 1947, in the wake of the second world war. Its founders believed that the festival should

“enliven and enrich the cultura...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) I join colleagues in thanking Drew Smith for enabling us to have this debate.

Following on from the points that John Mason has just made, I do not think that colleagues in the chamber are setting out to be either for or against Israel or for or against Palestine. Quite a few members have ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Sarah Boyack In South Africa, for example, things are not perfect, but progress has been made. In Palestine, on the other hand, things are going backwards and the situation in Gaza is appalling. We cannot stand for that, and we must do everything we can to add our voice to the call for a two-state solution and d...

Meeting of the Parliament 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) I welcome this first debate following the recess, coming as it does immediately after the Commonwealth games. It is important that we celebrate our special relationship with Malawi. Its existence during the past decade has enriched both countries through the various relationships between the two Gov...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) Under subsection (4) of new section 4A of the Tenements (Scotland) Act 2004, as introduced by section 72 of the bill, a local authority will be required to notify an owner if it intends to pay a share of scheme costs on that owner’s behalf. Amendment 59 seeks to ensure that the bill is sufficiently ...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Sarah Boyack I am delighted that, as I understand it, the minister will support amendment 59. On amendment 60, I agree with her that the tenement management scheme should be the first port of call, but I am concerned that that is not the case for many residents. That is partly because of a lack of guidance and p...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Sarah Boyack When we considered the amendments in group 16, I spoke about the distinction between getting a bill’s provisions right and ensuring that they are used effectively. Amendment 62 stems from an issue that demonstrates that point effectively.

At stage 2, Jim Eadie lodged an amendment that wou...
