Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : 21 August 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) The minister will be aware that, on 12 September, 800 cyclists will be travelling on the A82 through Fort William and onwards to Fort Augustus as part of the Deloitte tour. As the minister knows, the A82 is subject to major road works. The A82 partnership is concerned that normal traffic on the road...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : 20 August 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) I congratulate Margaret McCulloch on securing this evening’s debate and on her thoughtful opening speech.

Presiding Officer, 1997 was a crucial year for international development. Labour was swept to power in the Westminster landslide victory and it was committed to a step change in both ...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : 20 August 2014
David Stewart I am really short of time. I apologise to Linda Fabiani.

The UK also hits above its weight in multilateral aid through global organisations such as the United Nations, the World Bank and the World Food Programme.

On coming to this Parliament, I sustained my interest in our glob...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : 07 August 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) The First Minister will be well aware that Serco is to close its call centre in Brora, which will make all 21 local workers redundant.

The Convener (David Stewart) Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. I welcome you all to today’s meeting of the Public Petitions Committee. As always, I ask everyone to switch off their mobile phones or electronic devices because they interfere with our sound system.

Agenda item 1 is consideration of two new petitions. ...

Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : 05 August 2014
The Convener Thank you very much, Mr Macfarlane. Your petition is innovative, and I congratulate you on your work in this area.

As far as the wider issue is concerned, some cities in Europe are, as you will know, considering putting in place public Wi-Fi provision for the whole inner city; Rimini’s ol...

Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : 05 August 2014
The Convener I am sure that the committee will want to write to a number of public bodies on this issue, but for our own information, do you have any evidence of or figures for current coverage in the 32 local authorities?



Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : 05 August 2014
The Convener Finally, you will know that funding for your proposals is available through the United Kingdom’s superconnected cities programme; indeed, I think that some cities, including Edinburgh, have already applied to that. Would you welcome a boost to that programme throughout the UK?



Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : 05 August 2014
The Convener I will now bring in my colleagues.



Public Petitions Committee 05 August 2014 : 05 August 2014
The Convener Obviously, Mr Macfarlane felt a bit unwell. Sometimes, we forget how stressful it is to give evidence before a committee, particularly with the lights and everything else.
