Rhoda Grant MSP, seen in the photograph alongside Down’s Syndrome Scotland’s Family Support Service Officer for the Highlands and Islands, has launched a free documentary photograph exhibition at Eden Court.
The month-long exhibition coincides with United Nations World Down’s Syndrome Day (21st March) and Down’s Syndrome Awareness Week (17-23 March).
There has been a great deal of consensus in today’s debate. Hugh Henry was right when he pointed out that we are all committed to an NHS that delivers.
There is political consensus throughout the chamber.
Highlands & Islands MSP Rhoda Grant has reacted with dismay and anger after learning that the Chief Executive of the Western Isles, Local Authority, Malcolm Burr, received a letter from Assistant Chief Constable Wayne Mawson of Police Scotland, advising that Police Scotland were not now prepared to support the temporary, eighteen month, arrangement which they agreed with the Local Authority, Stornoway Port Authority and Caledonian MacBrayne to enable provision of Traffic Warden services in Stornoway to continue.

Rhoda Grant MSP visited the North Highland College, UHI, Environmental Research Institute on Friday (28th February) to discuss some of the world class research being carried out by the facility and took a tour round the Castle Street site in Thurso.
Speaking after the visit, Mrs Grant said
“I was privileged to visit the Environmental Research Institute in Thurso last week and hear first hand about some of the excellent projects and world class research being carried out at the facility as well as meeting some of the dedicated students and scientists who work at the institute. “
Highlands and Islands Labour MSPs, Rhoda Grant and David Stewart, are appealing to people throughout the region to respond to the request from the Scottish Parliament’s Justice Committee for written views on the reform of the fire and rescue service.
The call for opinions came from the Justice Committee the day after the decision was announced to reduce the number of fire controls in Scotland from eight to three.
