Meeting of the Parliament 07 December 2017 [Draft] : 07 December 2017


Gillian Martin (Aberdeenshire East) (SNP)

Education and Skills Committee 06 December 2017 [Draft] : 06 December 2017


Gillian Martin

Of course, if we want to be flexible, we should understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. It might have worked for that region, but it might not work in another part of Scotlan...



Education and Skills Committee 06 December 2017 [Draft] : 06 December 2017


Gillian Martin

Has the cabinet secretary assessed the impact of the austerity and welfare reform policies of the Tory-led UK Government on child poverty in Scotland? Is the Scottish Government getting incr...



Meeting of the Parliament 05 December 2017 [Draft] : 05 December 2017

I thank Bruce Crawford for securing the debate and for hosting Sue Ryder in Parliament a few weeks ago, when I was able to learn more about the work that it does ...



Education and Skills Committee 29 November 2017 [Draft] : 29 November 2017
