Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Angus MacDonald (Falkirk East) (SNP) Scaring is not the answer. I have seen in Stornoway that, if you move the geese on, they come back in no time.

It might be an idea to highlight the fact that the Public Petitions Committee, of which I am a member, recognised the seriousness and urgency of the matter that the petition dea...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Angus MacDonald (Falkirk East) (SNP) I agree that the petitioners have made a strong case this morning, and I would be content to continue the petition. It would be worth waiting to see the recommendations that come from the recently appointed special adviser, who has been in post for less than two months. I agree with the course of ac...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Angus MacDonald I agree with Jackson Carlaw’s comments. I, too, welcome Network Rail’s announcement. When I read the briefing paper, I was struck by the time the journey takes. Two hours and 28 minutes seems excessively long for a 108-mile journey, and I am therefore sure that the petitioner will be pleased to note...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Angus MacDonald I am pleased to note from the briefing and from questions that members have asked in the chamber that the issue is on the radar of the Minister for Public Health, who is fully aware of the Scottish adult congenital cardiac service.

I see that Dr Morton is pleased with the establishment of...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Angus MacDonald The cabinet secretary’s letter says that a statement will be made later in March. I presume that, given that we are now into April and heading for the Easter recess, the statement will be made later in April. That said, I am certainly content to wait for it.



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Angus MacDonald I was interested in the response from Falkirk Council’s chief executive, Mary Pitcaithly, in which she made a number of valid points, as did Alastair Mitchell from the Falkirk business improvement district company and Falkirk and District Town Centre Management Ltd—I suggested that she might contact...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Angus MacDonald It would be interesting to see the response to that. Experience of my local area suggests to me that there is very little consistency of the kind suggested.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Angus MacDonald (Falkirk East) (SNP) Good morning, cabinet secretary.

As you will be aware, concerns have been raised about the transition from historic to area-based payments, although it is fair to say that a range of views have been submitted to the committee. You will also be aware that the Pack report recommended that t...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Angus MacDonald Thanks, cabinet secretary. That option certainly seems to me to be the best one, and the majority of respondents seemed to think that.

I want to move on to the new payment system that is due to be introduced. As we know, the new payment system that was introduced in England between 2005 a...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Angus MacDonald The committee heard in evidence that stakeholders have a general belief that the SRDP should be about delivering transformational change and that, given that CAP support is declining, the SRDP should help farm businesses to adapt so that they can be sustainable with less public support.
