Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh (Eastwood) (Lab) My question is very much on the same subject.

Mr Mair, you have twice had to correct expectations. In your opening statement, you said, “We’re not going to empty hospitals; we’re just going to stop building new ones.” You then said, “We’re not going to make any saving in the acute sector...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh I will ask others for their comments on that issue but, really, does there not need to be greater political leadership or clarity in this area?

Catriona Renfrew has identified bedblocking as an issue; Bill Nicoll identified dementia beds as an issue; and Mr Mair has just identified palli...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh Just to clarify, you think that there could be a 10 per cent saving on hospital beds and it—



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh I can see that the other witnesses want to respond.



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014

How can you make these changes and reshape care for older people when your...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh I am not sure that I welcome the new format. I am not quite sure what the point of it is, but it does not seem to monitor change.

The first part of the section—the new additional information—is a list of all the projects greater than £20 million; that is useful, although it is just a list...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh I will pick up on two things that Bob Doris said. I do not quite follow the information about the M8, M73 and M74 project, because it suggests that the non-profit-distributing contract has reduced in value from £415 million to £310 million. The report says:

“The total cost of the project ...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh It is not more sophisticated.



Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : 02 April 2014
Ken Macintosh (Eastwood) (Lab) I thank Jim Hume and his Liberal Democrat colleagues for bringing this debate to the chamber. Although there is some contention among the parties on what response is appropriate from the Scottish Government, there is something approaching unanimity across the Parliament in recognising the importance...
