Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Bruce Crawford (Stirling) (SNP) Like others, I find it a privilege to be asked to speak in this final debate in the Scottish Parliament before the people of Scotland decide our future in just four short weeks’ time.

It has been a long campaign since the signing of the Edinburgh agreement—which signed us all up to respec...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Bruce Crawford —in Syria, Iraq, Gaza and Israel, Ukraine, Somalia, Afghanistan, Libya, west Pakistan and Sudan. The list goes on and on. I say to Alex Rowley and others who have made accusations that this is not isolationism but internationalism in action.



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Bruce Crawford In conclusion, I say that I want the respect of living in a normal country without weapons of mass destruction. That is what I seek, and a yes vote is Scotland’s one opportunity to achieve that, by putting Scotland future in Scotland’s hands.



Meeting of the Parliament 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Bruce Crawford (Stirling) (SNP) We have all, night after night, watched with disbelief atrocity after atrocity on the television. We have seen the killing of innocent children and civilians and Patricia Ferguson has mentioned what has happened at UN schools and facilities. The Israeli response is that its military will investigate...

Meeting of the Parliament 05 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Bruce Crawford (Stirling) (SNP) With regard to the respect agenda that the cabinet secretary mentioned in his statement, does he recall that David Cameron also said:

“This agenda is about parliaments working together, of governing with respect ... because I believe Scotland deserves that respect”?

Does the ca...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford (Stirling) (SNP) I will ask about maximising resources, reserves and assets and about learning from experience elsewhere. The whole public sector is under significant, on-going and sustained pressure because of the resources situation. Between 2007-08 and 2012-13, resources that were under the Scottish Government’s ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford I will come back to that sum, but on you go.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford It surprises me that some reserves have not already been used to make the changes that need to be made, given the scale of the challenge that is to come. We saw from the Auditor General’s report a couple of weeks ago that the projected further reduction in the overall expenditure that is available t...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford I would certainly have liked some of the money to be used on spend-to-save measures earlier. That is the point that I am trying to get at.

There is £312 million in free reserves—what an unusual concept. If that was the case in central Government, the Government would be getting a kicking ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bruce Crawford That is what the normal reserve pot is for. This is a free reserve.
