Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : 22 April 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) The mass power outage that affected 200,000 homes throughout the Highlands and Islands last week was unusual and troubling. I am concerned about the possible effects on business and on elderly and vulnerable individuals in my region. Has the cabinet secretary or any of his colleagues received compre...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
David Stewart Thank you.

The case illustrated both the difficulties and the costs involved in attempting to trace the owner of a derelict building in a village in the north-east of Scotland. After five years of attempts to confirm ownership, it turned out that the property was owned by a registered co...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
David Stewart My friend Councillor Jimmy Gray, who is the convener of Highland Council, first drew my attention to the hazards that buildings can pose to the public if they are not maintained properly. He had been unfortunate enough to experience at first hand the danger that is posed by a building in a state of ...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : 03 April 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) It is with great pleasure that I open this debate on the Defective and Dangerous Buildings (Recovery of Expenses) (Scotland) Bill.

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener Yes, it is about having a route map for consideration of future national symbols—that is a good point. I think that my points and Jackson Carlaw’s are very similar in terms of a recommendation for next steps. We need to take leadership over the wider issue. Do members agree that we will write to the...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener The final current petition is PE1500, by Stuart Housden OBE, on behalf of RSPB Scotland, on the golden eagle as the national bird of Scotland. Members have a note by the clerk and submissions.

The petitioner is happy for the petition to be continued in light of the response from the Minis...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener Are members happy for us to ask the Scottish Government about the consistency of approach point, to which Chic Brodie referred earlier? We can consider the Government’s response at a future meeting. Is that agreed?

Members indicated agreement.



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener All our regions or constituencies have experienced problems from urban town centres losing footfall as a result of out-of-town developments. I had a one-off meeting with a retail developer the other day who said to me that it is not a zero-sum game. Perhaps I should rephrase that—they said that they...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : 01 April 2014
The Convener We could write to the Scottish Government and ask how it ensures that there is such consistency.
