Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Siobhan McMahon I am sorry; I do not have time to take interventions.

The committee had before it 59 objections to the bill. Consideration of those objections was not an easy task. We considered a diverse range of subject matters during the course of this phase: the promoter’s pre-introduction consultati...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Siobhan McMahon (Central Scotland) (Lab) As convener of the City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee, I am pleased to open this final stage debate.

I thank all who have assisted the committee in its scrutiny of the bill, including the objectors to the bill and the promoter of the bill. The contributions from b...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon I agree entirely with John Finnie. The issue has been going on from the very first days of this committee and this session of Parliament. I think that it would be wrong for our committee not to have looked at the petition in its entirety before closing it. I, too, was going to propose writing to the...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon The frustration with the response is that there are no timeframes. I am pleased that we will ask about that, because we have given the Government long enough to see what meaningful engagement will take place. The Minority Ethnic Carers of People Project has highlighted that there are no Gypsy Travel...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon The convener led on that and Glasgow 2014 said that it would go back to its HR department to ask the question. The representatives of Glasgow 2014 did not have the information with them because they were dealing primarily with accessibility issues. The convener also asked about the young people who ...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon One point that I made was that, when I was online trying to book tickets, it was not clear what the word “accessible” meant. I have now received the tickets, but I am not sure that, if we had not had the meeting, I would have known what to do. The people we spoke to said that they would consider way...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon Our meeting was very productive. As you know, we had concerns regarding the transport arrangements that we had already been given, particularly in relation to the venues of Celtic Park and Hampden and the spaces that were allocated to blue badge holders. The concern was that people with additional n...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon In your submission, you say that Police Scotland’s view is that legislation alone will not eliminate FGM, and you have repeated that in evidence today. You also say that there is a lack of knowledge and awareness of FGM, and that that has to be tackled at a local and a national level. Do you have an...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon We have talked about culture and about religious or faith practices. However, as you know, people who come to Scotland from other countries tend to live near one another in certain areas. Is Police Scotland therefore targeting its resources in those areas, or is a wide approach being taken across Sc...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Siobhan McMahon (Central Scotland) (Lab) I am an MSP for Central Scotland.
