Meeting of the Parliament 12 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 12, 2014
Colin Keir

Does the minister agree that the actions of Police Scotland, the city council and local community groups, working together in partnership, have shown how effective local community policing can be, and that, although there is undoubtedly more to be done, the scare stories of some Opposition members about a breakdown in local policing are unfounded?

Meeting of the Parliament 06 November 2014 : Thursday, November 06, 2014
Colin Keir

Traffic congestion in the west of Edinburgh is at critical levels at present, as we wait to see any benefits from the trams. Will the minister agree to meet me, following the publication of the joint study with City of Edinburgh Council, in order to discuss its findings and possible future actions?



Public Audit Committee 05 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 05, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP)

We are getting the percentages and the amounts, but what is the total through number of out-patients in the service? That will give us an idea of how many people out of the total are failing to meet the target.



Public Audit Committee 05 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 05, 2014
Colin Keir

I am trying to get the number in perspective. Although the percentage rise may well be a trend that you have identified, in terms of the total amount going into the system, it is still a relatively small number.



Public Audit Committee 05 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 05, 2014
Colin Keir

That takes me back to the question that the convener asked about bank staff and, of course, private staff. I assume that the total number that has been taken in is very low in comparison with the total staffing number for the health service, which shows that there is not—shall we say for the sake of argument?—a privatisation menu. The aim is simply to deal with the pressures that are being faced at this moment. There is no policy decision to move to using private or bank staff on a permanent basis for a service.
