Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Dennis Robertson I have met several GPs in my constituency of Aberdeenshire West who are concerned about their work overload because of the ageing population and that medical students will not come through the system to replace the GPs who are coming up for retirement. What can be done to alleviate that issue?

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP)

1. To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to help recruit and retain GPs in rural and remote practices. (S4O-03377)



Meeting of the Parliament 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Dennis Robertson Would the member welcome it if the asylum seeker process for those in Scotland were to be carried out in Glasgow instead of their having to go down to Croydon?



Meeting of the Parliament 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP) I associate myself with Margaret McCulloch, whose speech stuck to the facts and put in context the problem, which is sometimes overstated—perhaps not in the chamber but certainly in the press and in the wider context of Scottish society.

In his opening remarks, the minister said, “Welcome...

Meeting of the Parliament 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP) Does the member believe that the media have an important role to play in putting across factual information rather than the misinformation that, in some areas, fuels some of the hatred—I think that that is the appropriate word to use—towards asylum seekers and refugees?



Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Dennis Robertson I thank the First Minister for that response. Of course, we welcome the 16-year high. Does the First Minister agree that the continued dominance of London, as was perhaps suggested in the Ernst & Young statement, risks overshadowing the rest of the UK and that the only way forward for an economic, p...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP)

4. To ask the First Minister what the Scottish Government’s position is on the Ernst & Young 2014 UK attractiveness survey. (S4F-02176)



Local Government and Regeneration Committee 11 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Dennis Robertson The minister referred to the two multi-agency working groups. I attend those groups, as does Inclusion Scotland. During the meetings we have worked closely with Inclusion Scotland and other members, and Inclusion Scotland has welcomed the tone of the guidance that is being developed at those meeting...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 11 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Dennis Robertson I concur with Cameron Buchanan’s statement. A valid badge holder has nothing to fear at any time when producing that badge, whether the official is in uniform or not.



Local Government and Regeneration Committee 11 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Dennis Robertson I have little to add. If a badge is lost and then found but another badge has been issued, that could involve a mix-up, which will be taken into account. Everything will be proportionate; I believe that the guidance will illustrate that.

We need to ensure that any badge that is reported a...
