Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) Good morning. I want to take the panel back to investment in relation to secure tenancies, which we touched on earlier. I will preface my question by saying that I agree with my committee colleague Jim Hume that there was a positive atmosphere when we took evidence from a range of groups recently.
Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish I want to turn our minds to and get some views from the panel on limited partnerships. In its written evidence, the STFA said:

“Limited Partnership tenancies must not be brushed under the carpet or relegated to the ‘all too difficult box’. Their future will have been complicated by the Sa...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish We have considered the broad issue of the need for positive relationships. Although such relationships cannot be legislated for, there is an issue to do with leadership, which Andrew Thin raised and other people touched on.

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish Yes, cabinet secretary. You succumbed to temptation.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish The Scottish Affairs Committee has been looking at evidence on taxation. Do you or other members of the panel wish to comment on what the UK Government could do in that regard? It might be helpful to get some balance into the discussion.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish We heard last week from Lloyd Austin of RSPB Scotland and Professor Bob Furness that the Firth of Forth is a very important place for sand eels and seabirds, as we have discussed this morning. Professor Furness’s work has produced many scientific papers on the subject. I seek clarification as to why...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish As I understand it—and I am speaking here as a layperson on the subject of sand eels—they have not been specifically designated in the MPA as a feature in need of protection and enhancement. Please correct me if I am wrong.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish You mentioned the common fisheries policy, and I acknowledge that there have been fisheries closures in the area that we are discussing and that there are other protections for sand eels. However, in light of the cabinet secretary’s comments about climate change, does the science show that sand eels...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Claudia Beamish Thank you.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
