Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister (Alex Salmond) I have engagements to take forward the Government’s programme for Scotland.



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister I will deal first with the question of the public’s satisfaction with the national health service. That information was not from an opinion poll or some snap survey, but from the social attitudes survey for Scotland, which is the most detailed assessment of social attitudes in the country. It demons...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister Let me offer another quotation from Brian Keighley, from the same “GMS” interview. Johann Lamont does not want to accept this, but he said:

“Clearly my target is not the current Cabinet Secretary, my target is the political classes in Scotland.”

The point that he was making was...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister Our plan is to continue to fund the NHS in Scotland to the maximum degree, which is something that the Labour Party—neither in Scotland nor in Wales—would not commit to doing. Our plan is to get access to the resources of Scotland so that we can move beyond austerity and have a proper, responsible a...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister I see that Johann Lamont does not think it important that the NHS in Scotland is being kept in public hands and is not being subjected to disintegration. That is very interesting, because Brian Keighley did not say that in his speech this week to BMA Scotland. He said:

“What is totally cl...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister (Alex Salmond) I have no plans in the near future.



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister I do not think that credit rating is the better together campaign’s strongest suit, given that famous leaflet about the AAA rating, which was published only weeks before the AAA rating disappeared, and given the speculation on rising interest rates that is much about at present. However, let us talk...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister In fairness to the independent governor of the Bank of England, I have never said any such thing. Indeed, I have defended his speech. Mark Carney had to correct Tory members of Parliament in the House of Commons who were similarly trying to misrepresent him, as Ruth Davidson has.

Also, I ...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister I accept that for me, there is a question mark around the OBR.

“Right from the start the Tories used the OBR not just as part of the government but as part of the Conservative Party.”

I am quoting directly from Alistair Darling in the Financial Times of 9 July 2010.

...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : 26 June 2014
The First Minister I whole-heartedly agree, as I believe and hope that the whole chamber does. One purpose of extremism is to seek to divide communities. We have been and continue to be constantly vigilant about radicalisation. Police Scotland has been active in monitoring that but also in engaging with and building s...
