Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP) It has been a great privilege for me to have been able to take forward the Disabled Persons’ Parking Badges (Scotland) Bill as a member’s bill. I would like to begin by inviting members who believe that they might not get an opportunity to participate in the debate to feel free to intervene on me if...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Dennis Robertson In winding up, I first extend my sincere thanks to those who managed to speak during this short, but very important, debate.

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP)

4. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the Scottish Enterprise annual review for 2013-14. (S4O-03464)

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Dennis Robertson If Social Enterprise Scotland says that it has a criterion for membership—if there is something that sets out what a social enterprise is in terms of its membership—is it not logical to take that criterion and use it to come up with a definition? Is that just too simple?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Dennis Robertson But you have a criterion that you set. You mark a social enterprise against a criterion for membership, do you not?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Dennis Robertson So you do not want a definition.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Dennis Robertson Does social enterprise provide opportunities for individuals or groups of individuals who perhaps do not get into the employment market through the standard means of getting out and finding a job? Are the training opportunities for certain individuals who might find it hard to get into the employmen...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Dennis Robertson In his submission, Ewan Fraser viewed the issue as one that offered opportunities rather than barriers. Is that right?
