Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Shona Robison In February this year, we launched the speak up against hate crime campaign to raise awareness of what hate crime is and how to report it. We will build on that work with partners from all the relevant organisations, many of which said when the statistics were published that the rise was due partly ...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Shona Robison I am aware that the security fencing, in particular, has caused concern among local residents. That is inevitable, given the close proximity of the venues to the local community. Security is of paramount concern, and the security planning has ensured the best overlay of security to ensure that we de...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Cabinet Secretary for Commonwealth Games, Sport, Equalities and Pensioners’ Rights (Shona Robison) I am grateful for the patience that has been shown by local residents and, in particular, by the Dalmarnock community. Preparation for the games has led to some unavoidable disruption. Planning has taken place among a wide range of bodies, including Glasgow City Council, the organising committee and...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Shona Robison I will certainly take that suggestion forward. It may be more appropriate for Michael Matheson to progress, but I will certainly take it up with him.

The increase in the overall breastfeeding rates in the most deprived areas is due mainly to an increase in the percentage of mums who are m...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
The Cabinet Secretary for Commonwealth Games, Sport, Equalities and Pensioners’ Rights (Shona Robison) We have had a very interesting debate and, as others have done, I thank Elaine Smith for bringing such an important subject to Parliament for debate. I am glad that we waited to welcome the mums—and the staff—to the gallery.

We know about the various media articles on the public shaming t...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Shona Robison I will write to update Margaret Mitchell on that, to ensure that my information is accurate.



Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Shona Robison I am aware of the issues, which have been raised previously in the chamber, and which Kezia Dugdale has mentioned. Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre receives funding from the violence against women fund and the rape crisis specific fund. Rape Crisis Scotland has funded a consultant to w...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
The Cabinet Secretary for Commonwealth Games, Sport, Equalities and Pensioners’ Rights (Shona Robison) The Scottish Government is providing funding of £100,000 per year from 2012 to 2015 to Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre. In addition, we support the rape crisis helpline, which is receiving £260,000 per year from 2012 to 2015.



Meeting of the Parliament 10 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Shona Robison I am just concluding.

The debate was robust, but overall it was interesting, with many interesting suggestions and issues to follow up. We can all agree that we want the best for Scotland’s older people, but we have very different routes to achieve that.
