Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP)

9. To ask the Scottish Government what the impact of the bowel screening awareness campaign has been since it was launched in February 2013. (S4O-03114)



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
Nigel Don It seems to me that the test is a very simple thing to do and it is surprising that not everybody does it. Statistics that I am aware of indicate that women are more likely to participate than men. Should we be doing something to ensure that men are more likely to complete the test?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP) Speaking for the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee, I can say that we, too, would like to see instruments much earlier. We will deal with them and pass them to the right committee as soon as we can. I note that the legislation on brucellosis is already in force. In many ways, that is undesir...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Nigel Don I do not know very much about this matter, but I wonder whether anyone could tell me how scaring a bird helps. It seems to me that it might leave your field, but it will go somewhere else to find something to eat. If it ends up in your neighbour’s field, I am not sure how that is helpful. If it goes...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Nigel Don There might be one or two that should not have that responsibility. The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee might be one, because we do not deal with policy. The Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee might take a similar view. We need to be slightly careful.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Nigel Don The clerk’s original drafting might be wiser.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Nigel Don Yes. Could we say “all subject committees”?



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener (Nigel Don) Good morning. I welcome members to the 12th meeting in 2014 of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee. We have apologies from John Scott. As always, I ask members to please turn off mobile phones.

Agenda item 1 is a decision on taking business in private. It is proposed that we tak...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener Agenda item 3 is consideration of the Scottish Government’s response to the committee’s stage 1 report on the bill. Members have seen the briefing paper and the response from the Scottish Government. Do members have any questions or comments?

There being none, do members agree to write to...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener Do members agree to reiterate the committee’s view that the circumstances in which a maximum fine may be varied are matters for the Parliament to set out in primary legislation? If so, do members also agree to ask the minister to reconsider amending section 32T of the Caravan Sites and Control of De...
