Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

That is a smashing question—it is also a very pertinent question, and one that the social renewal advisory board is looking at right now. I would urge the committee to have a conversation wi...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

That is a great question. We have all seen absolutely awe-inspiring examples of volunteering in our local communities. In my constituency, we have the Hamilton Covid-19 warriors, who are a g...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

I have probably heard much the same as the committee itself has heard about uncertainty. We are not sure. On the back of the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill and the pandemic response, wi...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020

Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

I managed to tune in to hear most of Emma Congreve’s evidence, which was helpful. I have made a note to get the Official Report, so that I can look at points that she brought up. I found thi...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

Again, we welcome such challenges because they challenge us to strive to do better. You might know that we call on the Scottish Human Rights Commission to support us in many ways, and to adv...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

Engender is one of our key partners, with Zero Tolerance, Close the Gap and a number of other organisations, and it has helped to inform a lot of our work. For example, I will be taking forw...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 08 October 2020 [Draft] : 08 October 2020


Christina McKelvie

I am afraid that I am not in a position to tell you whether there will be a future budget commitment to the connecting Scotland project, but I would certainly be a cheerleader for that.
