Senedd yr Alban: Rural and Island Digital Connectivity Challenges (27 Meh 2024)

Emma Harper: I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate, and I congratulate Beatrice Wishart on securing this final members’ business debate ahead of recess. Having access to fast and reliable broadband and being digitally included in today’s ever-more digital society is of the utmost importance for rural parts of Scotland, including Dumfries and Galloway, for many of the reasons that...

Senedd yr Alban: First Minister’s Question Time: Carer Support Payment (27 Meh 2024)

Senedd yr Alban: First Minister’s Question Time: Carer Support Payment (27 Meh 2024)

Emma Harper: The carer support payment is Scotland’s 14th transformative devolved payment and it benefits many young carers who would simply not, were they elsewhere in the United Kingdom, receive the financial support that they deserve. Will the First Minister urge the next UK Government to face up to the devastating effects of a decade of austerity on our communities, including on unpaid...

Senedd yr Alban: Agriculture and Rural Communities (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (18 Meh 2024)

Emma Harper: I am pleased to speak to amendment 14 in my name. It has quite a few subsections. I highlight that the National Farmers Union Scotland supports the amendment. I have a particular interest in the parts of the bill that relate to continuing professional development. I was a clinical nurse educator in my previous role with NHS Dumfries and Galloway and I was embedded in education and...

Senedd yr Alban: Rail Fares ( 6 Meh 2024)

Emma Harper: I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate, and I congratulate Mark Ruskell on securing it. I will keep my contribution brief. The removal of the peak rail fare has undoubtedly benefited people in many parts of Scotland, enabling them to travel by train more affordably. It has also had benefits for emissions reduction and action against climate change. The removal...

Senedd yr Alban: Decision Time (30 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. For some reason, my app couldnae connect. I would have voted yes.

Senedd yr Alban: Domestic Abuse of LGBTQ+ People ( 9 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate and I congratulate my friend and colleague, Collette Stevenson, on securing it. Collette has outlined the issue really well, so I am pleased to follow her at the beginning of LGBT+ history month. I, too, want to start by condemning domestic abuse in all its forms, whether it is sexual assault, coercive control, psychological abuse or...

Senedd yr Alban: World Asthma Day 2024 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: In the cross-party group, we have talked about how pulmonary rehab and singing help with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Does Alexander Stewart agree that PR and singing can help folk with asthma, too?

Senedd yr Alban: World Asthma Day 2024 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: I welcome the opportunity to lead this important debate to recognise world asthma day 2024, which took place yesterday, 7 May, with the theme “Asthma Education Empowers”. I thank members who have supported my motion, allowing the debate to go ahead today. I also thank Asthma and Lung UK Scotland for its briefing and for all that it does in respect of research, advice and support for...

Senedd yr Alban: Topical Question Time: NHS Dumfries and Galloway (Data Breach) ( 7 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: The latest announcement about the cyberattack displays the very real implications for staff and the public of cyberattacks, with personal details now bring freely published on the dark web. We also saw just yesterday that China successfully hacked the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence. Such attacks will continue to happen and will have serious consequences. Can the cabinet secretary give a...

Senedd yr Alban: General Question Time: Seasonal Workers (Protection) ( 2 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: A recent report, from April last year, on seasonal migrant workers in Scottish agriculture found that most seasonal workers come to Scotland because working here has been “personally recommended to them” and that 87 per cent of those who were surveyed were satisfied with the accommodation. Does the minister agree that Scottish agriculture needs access to the people who want to come to...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Wind Farms (Support for Opposition) ( 1 Mai 2024)

Emma Harper: In the same vein, I have met many constituents near Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway who have concerns about proposed wind farm developments in Glenvernoch and Blair Hill, which would lead to the tallest onshore turbines in Scotland, despite the region already having one of the highest levels of wind farm developments anywhere in Scotland. I know that the minister cannot...

Senedd yr Alban: Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (50th Anniversary) (30 Ebr 2024)

Emma Harper: I thank the member for giving way—I wisnae intending on speaking, but I, too, have a vested interest in safety on farms. A few years ago, I took forward a campaign about wearing helmets on quad bikes. That is not the law, but if you are a farmer, it can save your life. Do you think that that is a good idea in order to encourage safety on quad bikes?

Senedd yr Alban: Topical Question Time: Private General Practice Clinics (30 Ebr 2024)

Emma Harper: Will the cabinet secretary provide an update on the Scottish graduate entry medicine programme for recruitment and retention? Can he assure us that becoming a GP remains an accessible and attractive career choice across Scotland?

Senedd yr Alban: First Minister’s Question Time: Scottish Income Tax (Effect on Migration) (25 Ebr 2024)

Emma Harper: New research from His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs has shown that, in the period after Scottish income tax was introduced, thousands more taxpayers moved to Scotland than those who left each year. That seems to be somewhat at odds with the warnings from the Tories and even some Labour members that progressive taxation would deter taxpayers from coming to live here. Does the First Minister...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Scottish Prison Service (Workforce) (24 Ebr 2024)

Emma Harper: To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to assist the Scottish Prison Service in the recruitment of new officers, in the light of reported concerns regarding an ageing prison officer workforce. (S6O-03332)

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Scottish Prison Service (Workforce) (24 Ebr 2024)

Emma Harper: Through discussions with prison staff in my South Scotland region and with constituents who have applied unsuccessfully to work for the service, it has become clear to me that the aptitude testing that is used for pre-interview screening is a barrier to recruitment. Prison staff told me that the best candidates for the position—those with life experience, strong interpersonal skills,...

Senedd yr Alban: Scotch Whisky Industry (17 Ebr 2024)

Emma Harper: I am really pleased to speak in the debate, and I thank Ivan McKee for bringing it to the chamber. Before I begin, I declare that I, like Ivan McKee, am a member of the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee. I also remind members that I am a registered nurse, and I fully support the health recommendations to drink no more than 14 units of alcohol each week. Mr McKee laid out his...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Livestock Worrying (17 Ebr 2024)

What consideration might the Government give to a national...
