Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) Thank you for finding the time, Presiding Officer. I know that time has been tight in the debate.

I became politically active when I was 17 years old because of a UK Tory Government that Scotland did not elect, that was not accountable to Scotland and that did not represent the values of ...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP)

5. To ask the Scottish Government how it supports community organisations in the Glasgow region in using funding from the cashback for communities programme and other money seized under proceeds of crime legislation. (S4O-03495)



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Bob Doris I welcome the recent announcement of £1.5 million in funding for Scottish Sports Futures from cashback for communities, which the cabinet secretary outlined. That funding will be distributed by local partners in my region, such as active east.

I commend to the cabinet secretary the work o...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP)

6. To ask the First Minister what the Scottish Government’s position is on the Credit Suisse research institute report, “The Success of Small States”. (S4F-02244)



Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Bob Doris Is the First Minister aware that two key findings in the report are that economies of scale for larger countries do not necessarily benefit their populations and that funding public services in a small country costs less than it does in a large country? Does he agree that the report directly contrad...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) I thank the member for high-fiving me with that large green foam hand at Finnieston, while I was on my way to the women’s weightlifting finals. I think that Mr Mason did an excellent job.



Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) It has been a good debate. We had the revelation from John Mason that he is too old to be responsibly left in charge of a foam finger and Sandra White has confirmed that Glasgow people are great at telling people where to go. Both those things are true.

This excellent debate has not only ...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) I will try to be brief and to stick to amendment 6.

I am content that the general power under section 85(5) would be adequate in relation to the commencement order in section 22B, which was added to the bill at stage 2 by my amendment. The vast majority of section 22B remains fully intact...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) Can I just check something? It may have been a turn of phrase that Dr Simpson used. He has made a lot of good points, but he spoke about a failure in the regulations and I would like to clarify whether the regulations strengthen the position of dispensing GPs in remote or rural areas.



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris That is helpful. I just wanted to be clear that there is not a failure in the regulations. Dr Simpson and others perhaps think that there may be an opportunity to go further, either now or later, if the regulations are reviewed at a later date. The fact that the regulations strengthen the position o...
