Meeting of the Parliament 20 November 2014 : Thursday, November 20, 2014
Chic Brodie

The future of Scotland’s football resides in the successful development of young male and female footballers. Some recent reports and evidence earlier this year at a Public Petitions Committee round-table session on youth football—to which the cabinet secretary alluded—suggest that the contracted employment conditions of young footballers might be a matter for review. Will the Government at least engage with the authorities and have them consider an in-depth review?



Meeting of the Parliament 20 November 2014 : Thursday, November 20, 2014
8. Chic Brodie (South Scotland) (SNP)

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with football authorities regarding youth football contracts. (S4O-03728)



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

I will speak just very briefly, convener. I agree with Mike MacKenzie’s comments but, as I recall it, we had some lengthy discussions about the computer system. I note that regulation 3 provides for persons who are authorised to use what I understand to be a new system. Is that the case?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

I hope so.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

I understand the issue about the film studio, but what discussions have you had with the major television companies? For example, I understand that the BBC studio is not used a lot. Have you had any discussions with the BBC about utilising any of its infrastructure?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

Or it should be recycled. Is the money that you get back recycled?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

The difficulty that I see in many areas is that public money is invested in these so-called winning products and the only return might be the repayment of the initial loan. I would much rather see some equity and perhaps a much greater public return on public investment.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

But surely it is not difficult to exploit IP if you are handing over £25,000. Must that not be a negotiating point?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

The Scottish Parliament information centre briefing that we have received says that the fund provided

“grants of up to £25,000 for small companies”

but that the university

“did not take ownership of any IP or equity created during the project.”

Why not?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Chic Brodie

Having spent some time at Stanford University in California, I was interested in Professor White’s submission. Am I right in thinking that you have a prototype fund?
