Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Dave Thompson (Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch) (SNP) Has Willie Rennie spoken recently to Alan MacRae, the Lib Dem candidate who stood against me in 2011, or Dr Michael Foxley, the erstwhile Lib Dem leader of Highland Council? They would not classify themselves as nationalists, as Mr Rennie says, but both have decided to vote yes.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Dave Thompson (Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch) (SNP) Good morning, gentlemen. I remember attending a meeting in the Tore hotel in 2002 on the right to buy. Andrew Thin was there as an adviser. It was the inaugural meeting of the campaign for the right to buy.

I lodged a motion on that very subject at the Scottish National Party conference l...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Dave Thompson Thank you. That is fine.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Dave Thompson First of all, I am very supportive of the designations, which are very much needed. I am particularly pleased that the industry in general is supportive of what is being done, too. That is quite an achievement, cabinet secretary—especially bringing the fishermen on board, although I note that not al...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Dave Thompson Thank you, convener. It is as much a comment as a supplementary. I agree with what Jim Hume is saying. If maerl beds, or whatever, are discovered, we need to make sure that they are protected. However, the very fact that they have been discovered shows that they have not been destroyed. I do not kno...

7. To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the need for innovative thinking when planning new justice-related buildings. (S4O-03497)



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Dave Thompson Eric McQueen, who is the chief executive of the Scottish Court Service, Inverness Sheriff Principal Derek Pyle, former chief inspector of prisons Brigadier Hugh Monro, Highland Council and Police Scotland all believe that a Highland justice centre is the way forward for the north. Can the cabinet se...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Dave Thompson (Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch) (SNP) I am the MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Dave Thompson I want to go back to Professor Hammond’s point about a potential decline in sand eels in the north. I was born and brought up in Lossiemouth, so I am familiar with sand eels from seeing them in the River Lossie and around the shore—they are beautiful wee fish. Also, I am the sand eel champ, so I fee...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Dave Thompson The point about sand eel fishing by the Norwegians is interesting. That is a matter for the EU because it negotiates the overall fishing limits. I am not sure whether the Norwegians are fishing in their own or Scottish waters. It sounds like there is an EU-wide need to ensure that there are plenty s...
