Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison McInnes (North East Scotland) (LD) It is a privilege to open the debate on behalf of the Scottish Liberal Democrats.

Yesterday marked the first anniversary of Police Scotland and the abolition of Scotland’s eight regional forces. As members will be aware, we opposed the creation of the single force, because we feared that...

Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Alison McInnes Not at the moment.

City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Alison McInnes (North East Scotland) (LD) I have a couple of questions of clarification for the promoter and one for Ms Peters.

Dr McCulloch and Mr Carr made a particular point about the nature of the park. They highlighted its flatness and accessibility, and Dr McCulloch was particularly concerned about access for disabled peopl...

City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Alison McInnes Can you address the general issue?



City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Alison McInnes That was helpful.

You did not pick up on Ms Peters’s comment that there was no binding commitment to the replacement open space. How will the council ensure that the proposed mitigation on the alternative site will be delivered?



City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Alison McInnes Ms Peters, you said that the serious accident rate on Milton Road is twice the national average, which is at odds with what Mr Ross said. He said that he was including both serious and slight accidents. Can you confirm your figures? I feel that they are at odds.
