Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 20 February 2019 [Draft] : 20 February 2019


Gail Ross

Is it an educational issue? We should be teaching our children to not walk into roads without looking, regardless of the speed limit. If they are doing that, we n...



Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 20 February 2019 [Draft] : 20 February 2019


Gail Ross

If local authorities have the ability to carry it out at the moment, surely making the process easier and quicker would be good for them, because it would take le...



Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee 20 February 2019 [Draft] : 20 February 2019


Gail Ross

Equalities and Human Rights Committee 07 February 2019 [Draft] : 07 February 2019


Gail Ross

In speaking to the amendments, I am conscious that police officers play an important role in keeping our children and young people safe across Scotland every day,...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 07 February 2019 [Draft] : 07 February 2019


Gail Ross

I agree: we need to gather that information. However, I agree with Oliver Mundell’s point about the term “legalised police cell”, which the minister talked about ...



Equalities and Human Rights Committee 07 February 2019 [Draft] : 07 February 2019


Gail Ross (Caithness, Sutherland and Ross) (SNP)

When we started to take evidence on police cells, I was minded to take out the reference to their use altogether. I did a little bit of my own research and spoke to some people. I come from ...
