Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Alison McInnes (North East Scotland) (LD) I start by thanking those MSPs who supported my motion and enabled it to be debated today.

The British Medical Association’s your GP cares campaign emphasises that general practice is the cornerstone of the national health service and is at the heart of every community. The service provid...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Alison McInnes I am a little bit disturbed by the angle that the member is taking. He must understand that the GP’s workload is significantly more than the patient contact time.



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
Alison McInnes (North East Scotland) (LD) The very nature of the private bill process, in rightly giving objectors a proper process for their views to be heard, tends to emphasise the negative. After months of considering objections, members of the committee would be forgiven for thinking that no one supported the council taking the propose...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : 24 June 2014
Alison McInnes (North East Scotland) (LD) These are worthwhile petitions. There is still a lot of concern, certainly in my communities in North East Scotland, about the stripping away of these assets, which remains controversial. In advance of our meeting, could we write to emergency planning authorities to ask for their views on the closur...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : 24 June 2014
Alison McInnes I would particularly like to hear from emergency planning authorities. They might not necessarily pick up the fact that there is a call for evidence.



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
Alison McInnes (North East Scotland) (LD) I am pleased that there is a belated acknowledgement of the need for reform of stop and search. I share the concern of Margaret Mitchell and Graeme Pearson that there runs through all that you have said today, and through the new briefing paper from Police Scotland that we received this morning, jus...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
Alison McInnes Another interpretation of what you have just said is that, if police had not been focusing on your so-called hotspots and were out and about, they might well have come across what was happening.

That takes me quite neatly to your emphasis on intelligence-led stop and search. That sounds g...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
Alison McInnes If you were doing it ethically, you would respect the principle that people have the right to free association, to go about their business and to privacy, and that those rights cannot be traded off. Everyone has those rights, whether they come from a socially deprived area, an area that is full of c...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
Alison McInnes I need to press the whole panel on the issue. Article 14 of the European convention on human rights states that

“enjoyment of the rights and freedoms”

is “secured without discrimination”, with a specific reference to “social origin”. There is a temptation to say that stop and s...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
Alison McInnes My final questions are on consent and the ability of young people, particularly people under the age of criminal responsibility, to give consent. You have set out a clearer statement of the right to refuse, but how do you define whether a child, or someone with learning difficulties or whatever, has...
