Alex Johnstone (North East Scotland) (Con)

3. To ask the Scottish Government when it last met the British Veterinary Association. (S4O-03503)



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Alex Johnstone Has the cabinet secretary or his officials had specific talks regarding concerns about ritual slaughter? As a result, does he intend to bring forward any proposals to include labelling information on Scottish meat on whether stunning took place prior to slaughter?

Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Alex Johnstone Matthew Friess has just highlighted an issue that I wanted to ask about in greater detail, so his comments provide an appropriate opportunity to extend the discussion.

Alex Johnstone How should local authorities be using the private rented sector in the context of the housing options approach?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Alex Johnstone My instinct with these things is to say that it is a historical problem and it is not a problem any more, but I have no evidence to support that view in this case.
