Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
David Stewart I strongly support the minister’s view on the armed forces parliamentary scheme. As I said earlier, I had the great privilege of spending two terms with the RAF during my time at Westminster. Does the minister have any plans to meet Sir Neil Thorne, who chairs the armed forces parliamentary scheme? ...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) Further to the minister’s intervention on Mark Griffin, does Alex Fergusson share my interest in having an armed forces scheme in the Scottish Parliament, and does he share my support for looking at the idea on a cross-party basis? I participated in the scheme in the House of Commons and it was exce...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart I thank each and every member who has spoken in the debate. That is probably the first time that I have ever said those words in the Parliament over the past seven years, but I am very grateful for the personal support that I have been given and the support that has been acknowledged from the Minist...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) It is with great pleasure that I open the debate. The bill was introduced on 30 October 2013, and stage 1 concluded with a parliamentary debate on 3 April 2014. The Local Government and Regeneration Committee considered the bill at stage 2 on 4 June, and today the Parliament debates whether to pass ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014

Amendments 7 and 8 will ensure accurate linkage between new sections 46F and 46G and the pre-existing sections by adding a necessary cross...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart These amendments seek to further refine the appeals system to ensure that it cannot be used to frustrate the intended operation of the bill. They also clarify that local authorities do not need to wait until after the appeal period has elapsed to register a discharge.

The amendments are ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart These are minor and technical amendments that involve some repositioning of provisions that deal with registering a charging order and a discharge. They seek to ensure further clarity and consistency in the application of the bill, and we are therefore content to support them.

Amendment 4...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) The bill has always focused on owners of buildings. This package of amendments ensures that the local authority cannot make a charging order under new section 46A of the 2003 act if the person liable for expenses relating to enforcement under section 27 is not the building owner—for example, if they...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart New members receive a booklet called “MSP Security Guidance”, which advises them on matters related to lone working for themselves and their staff. Those matters include liaising with local police crime prevention officers; physical security of homes and offices using door buzzers and panic alarms; ...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
David Stewart (Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body) The security office is responsible for a first point of contact for members in relation to both physical and office security when members are in the Parliament building, or wherever formal parliamentary business is conducted.
