Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) Good morning, minister. You have just started to outline the situation with mixed flocks but, as I understand it, the barnacles on Islay still mix with the threatened Greenland white-fronted geese. With regard to an issue highlighted by the RSPB, is any form of risk assessment being done or likely t...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Claudia Beamish On a broader issue, minister, there is a feeling among conservation groups that they have not been involved in structures for taking forward stakeholders’ views on the management plan for Islay. Do you have concerns about that?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Claudia Beamish I will ask about lead shot, which you highlighted in relation to the weight of shot required to be fatal. I understand that there are new recommendations from the Food Standards Agency on the toxicity of lead shot. If I am right, at the moment it is illegal to use lead shot on wetlands but not on te...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Claudia Beamish I understand from the evidence that we have been given that the FSA’s new advice about eating less game that has been shot with lead shot is for consumers more broadly rather than just the two groups that you identify. Is the Scottish Government addressing that issue?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Claudia Beamish On hunting bag data, is there any prospect of the Scottish Government looking at it more generally and building on the pilots beyond the islands? I appreciate Eileen Stuart’s point about the islands being easier to monitor, but I wondered whether anything more general is being mooted?



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) Amendment 7 seeks to allow the Scottish ministers to create regulations on energy efficiency standards, which would be included as part of the repairing standard in the private rented sector. It would also establish a system of inspection and enforcement.

As she highlighted, the minister ...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) I am an MSP for South Scotland and shadow minister for environment and climate change.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Claudia Beamish I am glad that that aspect of the local goose management schemes has been raised. Initially, it seemed to me, as a lay person, to be an interesting way forward. I hope that, when we come to discuss the Scottish Government’s involvement, we will be able to talk about funding implications, but I shall...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Claudia Beamish I have a quick question. Is there any concern about shooting among mixed flocks that graze together?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 11 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) I hope that we will move seamlessly into the issue of agencies to support communities and oversee governance. I preface that by stressing my support for the direction of travel on the broader diversification of land ownership and community empowerment.
