Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Derek Mackay Alex Fergusson characterises accurately the intention of the Local Government Finance (Unoccupied Properties etc) (Scotland) Act 2012 and the associated regulations. Therefore, I confirm that the position on both questions is that his was a fair and accurate assessment of what is intended and that t...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Minister for Local Government and Planning (Derek Mackay) Not quite, Presiding Officer—I am a minister, but I will take that promotion, thank you.



Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Derek Mackay We are currently in discussions with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities, representing our local government partners, on the local government finance settlement for next year. I expect similar discussions to continue after the referendum.

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Derek Mackay Yes, the Scottish Government can consider that proposal.

Like every other island in Scotland, Arran will benefit from the...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Minister for Local Government and Planning (Derek Mackay) I acknowledge the work of the City of Edinburgh Council (Portobello Park) Bill Committee in considering the bill and the efforts of those who made written submissions or gave oral evidence.

As I said when I spoke in the preliminary stage debate on the bill in January, the Scottish Governm...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Derek Mackay Thank you, Presiding Officer—that is something of a challenge when one has to remain neutral, as is the case with these matters, but I will do my best.
