Ruth Davidson (Glasgow) (Con)

2. To ask the First Minister when he will next meet the Secretary of State for Scotland. (S4F-02208)



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Ruth Davidson We end this parliamentary term in a familiar place, with the Scottish National Party blind to the very real risks involved in leaving the United Kingdom and with expert analysis that points out those risks.

To take one example, this morning there was a new report from the Scotland Institu...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Ruth Davidson As the First Minister well knows, Standard and Poor’s did not give an independent Scotland its highest credit rating: an economic assessment is only one of the measures that it uses. To say that it did is misrepresenting its views.

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Ruth Davidson Of course, nobody in the First Minister’s office would ever misbrief.

Let us sum up where we are on the issue. We know from the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Sustainable Growth that in 2012 he ordered work

“to build a comprehensive overview of the institutions, costs and st...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Ruth Davidson (Glasgow) (Con) I have written directly to every senior football club in Scotland and I have met the chief constable, who is an interested party, on this issue. Given the First Minister’s stated open-mindedness on this issue, and the progression that we have seen in the many decades since the ban was introduced, wi...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
