Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) It might be worth asking the Scottish Police Federation and the Fire Brigades Union for their views. I know that the FBU had concerns about the closures. It would be helpful to get an idea of whether the people who represent the emergency workers are aware of or concerned about any difficulties.
Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray (Dumfriesshire) (Lab) When the cabinet secretary was here last week, he suggested that there would be some amendments that would clarify the issue in relation to cases such as asbestosis cases. Is this such an amendment?



Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray In supporting Alison McInnes’s amendment 43, I point out that the concern is that, although the sum of £5,000 might seem low, in relation to personal injury, such cases can still be fairly complex. As for the point that Roddy Campbell made about lawyers not being present, if someone has suffered a l...

Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray I very much welcome the amendments, which will help to ensure equality of arms. I note that amendment 137 would allow one party to make the application for proceedings to go into the simple procedure. I presume that court rules would cover the possibility of the bigger party, if you like, forcing th...

Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray I would like a bit of clarification of that, to be sure that requiring the consent of only one party would not disadvantage the smaller party.



Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray The only witnesses who put forward that point of view to the committee were from Asda. The proposals did not seem to have much support from anybody else. I hear from Margaret Mitchell that the SRC also supports the amendments, but we did not seem to have any other supporting evidence on the position...

Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray Section 85 imposes a time limit of three months on an application for judicial review, although we have heard that there could be some flexibility. The committee has heard conflicting evidence on this matter, including proposals that there should be no time limit, a time limit of six months or a tim...

Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray I have listened carefully to what the minister said and I accept that there could be a problem with legal argument about when somebody actually had knowledge of the grounds for complaint. The illustrative example of a planning permission case that the minister used is a case in point in which the ar...

Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray Okay, but just before I do that, I should have said something about amendment 65 when I was speaking to amendment 125. I am still a bit concerned about the period of seven days for an appeal following an oral hearing. I understood that the normal time limit for appeals was 21 days, so seven days see...

Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Elaine Murray I seek permission to withdraw the amendment.
