Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) I am pleased to see that, in the context of climate change and active travel, the Scottish Government has included the national long-distance cycling and walking network in the draft national planning framework 3. Can the minister provide any details of funding allocated specifically to help to deve...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) My apologies for coming in late. My point concerns the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (Amendment) Order 2014. The impact assessment states that the amendment means a “small” change. I would be concerned if the change is any more than small, because it is about the quality of air for people and also ab...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish I did not make the time—although there was not much time—to find out exactly what 0.3MtCO2 is. It might be helpful to know what the small difference is. I would not want to see this happening more and more.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish I would not want to take away from the other evidence that has come in, but I want to highlight evidence from environment non-governmental organisations. RSPB Scotland in particular acknowledges the concerns that the situation with greylag geese is out of control. We have the evidence, but it is imp...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish I was pleased to see the point made in paragraph 4 that we believe that, as the Scottish Government states,

“all ministers are climate change ministers”.

However, the note goes on to say:

“all relevant committees have a responsibility to be climate change committees”...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish Can we say “all committees as listed” and then list them?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish Having represented the committee on the public sector climate leaders forum, I would want to see the NGOs that are part of that group added to the list. It is important to highlight them as well as the public sector bodies, and I am not sure that I see bodies such as Scottish Environment LINK and St...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish They are represented on the PSCLF.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Claudia Beamish That is a fair point.



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Claudia Beamish (South Scotland) (Lab) Good morning. I, too, am pleased to have been invited to give evidence, which will be brief, as it is about a specific area of concern in relation to only one bill. I do not know whether this will form a picture in any way, but it is about the Regulatory Reform (Scotland) Bill, as is highlighted in ...
