Senedd yr Alban: First Minister’s Question Time: University Hospital Wishaw (Neonatal Intensive Care) (27 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: The Scottish Government’s plan to downgrade the neonatal intensive care unit at University hospital Wishaw is dangerous and flawed, and it will fail vulnerable babies and families in Lanarkshire. My constituents deserve better, and that is why they have the full support of Scottish Labour. What about the First Minister? Will he listen to parents, families and healthcare experts and save...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I am grateful to Mark Ruskell for his comments and for his interest in the issue, as a fellow cloth-bum parent—if that is the right terminology these days. I just want to try to get a bit of debate here. The scheme in North Ayrshire has been on the go since 2019 and, in the past, there were other schemes. Every year, when reusable nappy week comes around—it is normally in April—I go on...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I am grateful to Mark Ruskell and the minister for their contributions. It is important, following on from stage 2, when we last discussed the matter, that we had a chance to get this discussion on the record and to explore the progress that has been made and what we can learn from the James Hutton Institute report. More work needs to be done, and I hope that we can work on that together. ...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I see that Douglas Lumsden is very excited that we have reached my amendment 105. At almost half past 7 at night, I am glad to be waking up the Tory front bench, at least. Group 13 is indeed about reusable nappies. We have been building up to this, not just during today’s debates at stage 3 or during stages 1 and 2, but throughout the parliamentary questions that I have asked and...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: Amendments 102 and 103, which are in my name, would help to achieve Scottish Labour’s aims of strengthening the bill in relation to reuse—a point that has already been made a number of times today. We recognise the important role that individual households and local authorities will play in the success of the bill. Much of that will be achieved through the code of practice, which will be...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: Scottish Labour welcomes amendment 71, in the name of Gillian Mackay. We note that Action to Protect Rural Scotland also strongly supports the amendment. Adding to the bill a provision that ministers “may, by regulations, establish a take-back scheme for single-use vaping products” would be welcome. I hope that all members will support amendment 71. All...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I hope that there will be a break soon so that the minister’s voice gets a little bit of respite. I think that I understand the minister’s point about the statutory duties, but people in the chamber and outwith it will be wondering how the bill will encourage more activity in the local authority space to work with our third sector partners and others so that we can shift...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: Will the member take an intervention?

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: This is a really important contribution from Mark Ruskell. For clarity, I take this opportunity to say that amendment 104 seeks to place a duty on the minister when creating secondary legislation under section 13. It is not about putting that duty on to local authorities directly. Throughout the scrutiny of the bill, we have heard that there is a real appetite for more activity on reuse, and...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: This group of amendments is important. It follows on from an important debate that we had at stage 2. We believe that the targets that Maurice Golden and Graham Simpson have lodged are critical to driving up action to increase recycling. We also agree that targets are essential, but, as we have seen in relation to climate targets, action is crucial. Given that this is a framework bill, it is...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: There is a lot of agreement on this group, and we certainly support all the amendments in it. My amendment 77 seeks to mirror my earlier amendment 72, which was already debated in group 2 and agreed to. Amendment 77 is about ensuring that the application of due diligence in relation to environmental protection and human rights is exercised in supply chains. That would ensure that those issues...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I am not sure that I agree that what is proposed has to be a burden. Surely it is an opportunity. If Scotland is going to aspire to be a more circular nation, surely we need to encourage all our public bodies, regardless of their size, to play their part, and having a plan is really the start of that process.

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I agree with Sarah Boyack—there are some important amendments in the group. I will not speak to them all, but I think that Mark Ruskell, in opening consideration of the group, got off to a good start—in particular, with regard to his amendment on “critical minerals”. As many people have pointed out during scrutiny of the bill, it is a framework bill, which means that the...

Senedd yr Alban: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: I aim to surprise. We will talk about the issue later. Amendment 74 speaks for itself, and I hope that members will support it. I am pleased to have worked closely with the minister on it. I will make a final comment on amendment 45, which is in the name of Clare Adamson. It is an important amendment, as others have said. I know from my work chairing the cross-party...

Senedd yr Alban: Bankruptcy and Diligence (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 ( 6 Meh 2024)

Monica Lennon: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I could not connect—I am still trying to connect. I would have abstained.

Senedd yr Alban: Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (28 Mai 2024)

Monica Lennon: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I could not connect to the app. I would have voted no.

Senedd yr Alban: First Minister’s Question Time: Pre-eclampsia Testing (23 Mai 2024)

Monica Lennon: Yesterday was world pre-eclampsia day. Women and babies in Scotland have died, so the First Minister’s words will not reassure anyone. Today, I have had written answers from the Minister for Public Health and Women’s Health, telling us about scoping inquiries and writing again to health boards because of the capacity and infrastructure challenges that they have raised. That is...

Senedd yr Alban: Further Education Pay ( 7 Mai 2024)

Monica Lennon: I join other members in thanking my colleague Richard Leonard and congratulating him on securing the debate. I congratulate him, too, on his passionate speech, which, from where I was sitting, sounded like a call to action amid the on-going and escalating industrial action in our vital further education sector. I say to members here that if they are getting fed up with having to go...

Senedd yr Alban: Further Education Pay ( 7 Mai 2024)

Monica Lennon: Fulton MacGregor has been very generous to constituents and FE workers with his time, but does he agree that this is not a communication problem but a political problem? Governments make political choices, and they are making the wrong ones. Can we not all work together to get the minister to finally do something today? Eight years is a very long time.

Senedd yr Alban: Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (30 Ebr 2024)

Monica Lennon: Apologies. The technology does not appear to be working. I am enjoying Tess White’s speech. She is also an active member of the women’s health cross-party group. Does Tess White agree that, although it has taken quite a long time to get to this point, we have the benefit of being able to look at the legal situation in Northern Ireland? We had the Supreme Court ruling and,...
