Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona McLeod (Strathkelvin and Bearsden) (SNP) Mary Scanlon, James Kelly and Willie Coffey, among others, have talked about digital exclusion and digital literacy, and I want to take the few minutes that I have to highlight what libraries are doing to address that issue. Unless we tackle the problems of the digital divide and ensure that people ...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Fiona McLeod I agree with Ms Marra’s comments about digital exclusion in relation to hardware. Is she aware of the work by the Carnegie UK Trust that indicates that, once we give people the hardware, we need to ensure that they want to connect?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod (Strathkelvin and Bearsden) (SNP) I will concentrate on stage 1. We have covered the issues quite extensively today but, from the written evidence and what I have heard today, a slight divergence of opinion seems to be emerging.

Nigel Don said that stage 1 was thorough and that the stage 1 report is useful to Parliament a...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod Is there a way in which any pre-consultations that have been done by the Government, or by anybody else, can be tied into a committee’s stage 1 consultation?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod Before I move on to supporting documents at stage 1, I return to Richard Lyle’s question about how we can engage the wider public. If we extended the length of time for stage 1, would we be able to engage more of the public?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee and the Finance Committee both think that we need to change some of the rules on the supporting documents that accompany a bill on its introduction. Can you talk us through that and give us suggestions on what needs to change?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod That gives us quite a lot of food for thought.

I do not know whether you have seen the Scottish Government’s submission. It goes nowhere near what we have talked extensively about, but the Government asks in its submission

“whether the Delegated Powers Memorandum should be form...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod The Scottish Government’s submission says that the committee should give consideration to

“whether the Delegated Powers Memorandum should be formally designated an accompanying document”.



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod Okay. There is also a suggestion about the financial memorandum and explanatory notes. Can I ask you to look at the Government’s submission and come back to us on those points?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Fiona McLeod Would it be helpful to have longer periods to debate amendments at stage 3?
