Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP)

8. To ask the Scottish Government whether a review has been carried out on how effective the Queensferry crossing consultation forums have been in dealing with local groups and people. (S4O-03488)



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Colin Keir Have contractors for the Queensferry crossing improved communications to local residents, particularly in the Echline area of South Queensferry, in the light of complaints from those affected by the major civil engineering works and changes to work schedules, including extra work at weekends?

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP) This morning on Radio Scotland Alistair Darling said, “Look, it’s no secret that the Tories have long had their sights on public spending.” Does the cabinet secretary agree that that highlights the hypocrisy of the no campaign, which claims that public spending is safe at Westminster?



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP) As an Edinburgh MSP, I agree with quite a lot of what Sarah Boyack said.

Scotland is a nation of festivals. All through the year, up and down the country, a local festival can usually be found. As the cabinet secretary said, 2014 could be the greatest year that we have had for events, cul...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP)

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Colin Keir The minister might be aware of reports in the Financial Times of 7 August that the Local Government Association in England is expected to back the scrapping of the Barnett formula. Does the minister share my view that the only threat to local public services comes from a no vote next month, which co...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP) I add my congratulations to Drew Smith on bringing forward this very important debate.

Our television screens are currently dominated by highly disturbing images from Gaza. As Drew Smith pointed out, Hamas is certainly not blameless in the conflict. I condemn its rocket attacks, but the e...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP) As Liz Smith pointed out, the legacy from the most successful Commonwealth games ever is not easily defined. Every single person will have a view of what that legacy is, and I suspect that nobody will be wrong.

These Commonwealth games were a showcase for Glasgow and Scotland, and they ce...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Colin Keir (Edinburgh Western) (SNP) One thing that I can remember knocking around in my days as a councillor is the issue of equal pay and the pressures arising from that. You point out in paragraphs 17 to 19 of the overview report that there are still pressures in that regard and that there is a review. Are some councils handling the...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Colin Keir Okay. In the interests of time, I will leave it at that.
