Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green)

6. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on applications to the community links programme for cycle infrastructure improvements. (S4O-03111)



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Alison Johnstone I am sure that the minister will join me in praising all those staff in local authorities and in Sustrans who worked hard to get a record number of bids into the scheme. That, I believe, reflects the demand for better cycle infrastructure across all parts of Scotland. Will the minister ensure that a...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) My colleague asked about impacts of regulation and costs and so on. The World Bank currently ranks the UK tenth out of 189 countries on the ease of doing business.

Would you like to see an opp...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison Johnstone Thank you. My next question is for Mr McMillan. My colleague Mr Brodie asked who you had consulted before reaching the views that are expressed in your submission. You said that you had had meetings with various groups. I would like to be clear about who you are representing today. In your list of m...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison Johnstone Thank you.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison Johnstone I have a question for Mr McMillan on the CBI’s submission. You say that

“Scotland’s success is underpinned by being a vital part of a dynamic and outward-looking UK economy”

and that

“Scotland in the Union is an economic success story”.

You will be aware t...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison Johnstone Certainly. Let us look at equality of opportunity. It is a known fact that, in this affluent city of Edinburgh, a person’s results depend on where they go to school. If we look at a map of Edinburgh, we can see that there are notable gaps and differences in attainment, which depends on where people ...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison Johnstone I have just one more question, convener.
