Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson (Galloway and West Dumfries) (Con) It would make sense, convener, if that is all right with you. I was going to raise this matter later, but we have got to it already.

A concern that was raised at our stakeholder meeting was that, because we are talking about migratory species, other countries are involved. What discussion...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson I ask for a further clarification in the hope of putting to bed the concern that was raised with us. I take it that, where possible, you will take any representations that have been made by those other countries into consideration before finally approving the plan that has been worked on.


Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson That is very useful. Thank you.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson I am interested in what Eileen Stuart said about the sporting sector’s involvement. When we had the round-table session last week, I asked Dr Walton of RSPB Scotland whether he had

“any suggestions on how we could increase the quality of the scientific evidence”

that is availab...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson I understand. Thank you for that clarification.



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson (Galloway and West Dumfries) (Con)

16. To ask the Scottish Government when it last met Dumfries and Galloway Council’s director of education and what matters were discussed. (S4O-03416)



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Alex Fergusson I imagine that the cabinet secretary and his officials will have had some discussions over the financing and siting of the proposed new education hub in Dumfries. Does he agree that it would preferable for a full evaluation of alternative sites for the education hub to take place before any final de...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Alex Fergusson (Galloway and West Dumfries) (Con) I agree with the minister that people can overegg the issue, but does he acknowledge that the number of veterans in prison last year in Scotland rose by 40 per cent, and that we should not be complacent about that figure?



Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Alex Fergusson (Galloway and West Dumfries) (Con) Yesterday I attended, as did many colleagues, the flag-raising ceremony in my nearest town to mark the start of armed forces week. There was not a huge turnout, but it was impossible not to be moved by the pride, the passion and the camaraderie that was still so clearly evident in the group of veter...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Alex Fergusson I hope that such issues, above all, are ones on which we can share interest across the parties. I endorse David Stewart’s feeling.

Those who in the past put their lives on the line for our security, and those who are doing so currently, deserve no less than our full support. I am quite su...
