Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : 24 June 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) Further to the minister’s intervention on Mark Griffin, does Alex Fergusson share my interest in having an armed forces scheme in the Scottish Parliament, and does he share my support for looking at the idea on a cross-party basis? I participated in the scheme in the House of Commons and it was exce...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : 24 June 2014
David Stewart I strongly support the minister’s view on the armed forces parliamentary scheme. As I said earlier, I had the great privilege of spending two terms with the RAF during my time at Westminster. Does the minister have any plans to meet Sir Neil Thorne, who chairs the armed forces parliamentary scheme? ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart (Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body) Police Scotland uses a computerised call and incident management system—the system for tasking and operational resource management, or STORM—to record handling of incidents. The Scottish Parliament police unit provides a police service for the Scottish Parliament campus, which includes the landscape...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart I thank Mr Wilson for his question. I know that he takes a great interest in these matters.

Perhaps I can respond by making a slightly wider point. We have ensured that the police and our security staff are well briefed on incidents involving security; for example, with regard to police p...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014

Our digital programme started in 2013 and we are already piloting more flexible ways to consume our products and services any time, anywhere on mobile devices. For example, seven committees are now taking part in the committee pack pilot, which makes ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart The total budget for the programme covering this and the last financial year is £1.286 million. The programme is expected to run until the end of the current session in 2016. By then, we will have made some significant improvements in digital working, which will form a good basis for other continuou...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart (Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body) The security office is responsible for a first point of contact for members in relation to both physical and office security when members are in the Parliament building, or wherever formal parliamentary business is conducted. The security office also provides a first point of contact for general adv...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart New members receive a booklet called “MSP Security Guidance”, which advises them on matters related to lone working for themselves and their staff. Those matters include liaising with local police crime prevention officers; physical security of homes and offices using door buzzers and panic alarms; ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) The bill has always focused on owners of buildings. This package of amendments ensures that the local authority cannot make a charging order under new section 46A of the 2003 act if the person liable for expenses relating to enforcement under section 27 is not the building owner—for example, if they...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : 19 June 2014
David Stewart These are minor and technical amendments that involve some repositioning of provisions that deal with registering a charging order and a discharge. They seek to ensure further clarity and consistency in the application of the bill, and we are therefore content to support them.
