Meeting of the Parliament 04 February 2014 : Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Dave Thompson (Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch) (SNP) I am intrigued by amendment 28 because it was not so long ago that we were being told that marriage was the gold standard and that people in civil partnerships felt like second-class citizens. If that was true, why would anyone choose a civil partnership over a civil marriage?



Meeting of the Parliament 04 February 2014 : Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Dave Thompson Following on from the argument that the member has just made, would it not be better just to abolish civil partnerships and give everyone the same, if it is truly about equality?



Meeting of the Parliament 04 February 2014 : Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Dave Thompson The member raises an interesting point about giving people a choice. People are given a choice between two different things, such as an apple and a pear. What is the difference between civil partnership and civil marriage?



Finance Committee 08 January 2014 : Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Dave Thompson (Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch) (SNP) Good morning, cabinet secretary. I would like to return to a point that was raised by John Mason. You have talked about the appointment of the board of the Scottish fiscal commission. Do you envisage that that will be subject to the normal, standard rules for public appointments that are overseen by...

Finance Committee 08 January 2014 : Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Dave Thompson I take what you say, cabinet secretary. You are right that there will be a restricted number of such people and there may be no anonymity at all because the folk who make such appointments will probably know all the names, as they no doubt do already, in some cases, when they make appointments to ot...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2013 : Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Dave Thompson (Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch) (SNP) The motion was stimulated by a discussion at the cross-party group on heart disease and stroke, of which I am a vice-convener, in March. At that meeting, we heard first hand from specialist nurses—as well as from the patients and families that they work with—about how invaluable the services are. I ...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2013 : Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Dave Thompson It has just occurred to me that it was remiss of me not to mention that NHS Highland in my area is one of the four health boards that are meeting the target.



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 20 June 2013 : Thursday, June 20, 2013
The Convener (Dave Thompson) Good morning, everyone. Welcome to the 10th meeting in 2013 of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee. I remind members and others to turn off mobile phones and BlackBerrys, please.

Agenda item 1 is to decide whether to take in private items 4, 5, 6 and 7. Item 4 is c...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 20 June 2013 : Thursday, June 20, 2013
The Convener Agenda item 2 is our inquiry into post-legislative scrutiny. This is a round-table meeting, so I hope that everyone will participate as freely as possible.

I welcome the witnesses and thank them for their written submissions. We have Michael Clancy, who is the director of law reform at th...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 20 June 2013 : Thursday, June 20, 2013
The Convener How would we go about designating

“a protected zone of time”?

Jackie McCreery mentioned a dedicated committee. That in itself would provide protected time. If we were not to have a designated committee, how could we provide such time?
