European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener We are straying dangerously away from the topic that we should be looking at.

I thank the minister and his officials very much for their evidence. You have exercised a lot of our points and answered a lot of our questions.

I wish you all a restful but, I hope, very busy recess...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener Clare, do you have a follow-up question?



European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I am delighted to say that, in my work with the Council of Europe, the Scottish human rights action plan was the subject of extensive conversation, and there was a presentation on it by Scottish Government officials in Strasbourg very recently. A number of other countries are looking at that strateg...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I want to follow up that evidence from Professor Bailes. Although Bruce Adamson from the Scottish Human Rights Commission did not express real concern about this, he raised the issue of how a Scottish human rights charter, legislation or whatever we formulate—I know that we have a Scottish human rig...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I turn your attention to the evidence that we received from Professor Alyson Bailes, who joined us by videoconference from Iceland, in the section of our inquiry on membership of international organisations. My personal feelings about membership of NATO are a matter of public record, of course, but ...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I believe that Jamie McGrigor has a question on a new theme.



European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener That view is very welcome indeed.

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener Would the same policy apply to trafficked individuals, given that trafficked status is currently determined by the UK Border Agency? People do not seem to have a right of appeal against a determination, and they have to volunteer for the national referral mechanism instead of being cared for and tre...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener On Jamie McGrigor’s point, we have heard evidence from witnesses who welcomed the introduction of a Scottish asylum agency. As the minister will know, I have for many years now advocated compassion for asylum seekers and have argued that any young children who are unaccompanied asylum seekers should...

European and External Relations Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I will take a couple of supplementary questions on this issue, Jamie, and then I will bring you back in.
