Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Fiona McLeod (Strathkelvin and Bearsden) (SNP)

5. To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to inform doctors about the medical certificate of cause of death that is expected to be introduced in August. (S4O-03395)



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Fiona McLeod I thank the cabinet secretary for that comprehensive reply. I am pleased to hear about how much work we have done on the issue, but what have we done to inform funeral directors of the new MCCD?



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Fiona McLeod (Strathkelvin and Bearsden) (SNP) I speak as a member of the committee that considered this private bill and will concentrate my remarks on reassuring MSPs—both those who are in the chamber and those who are following the debate in their offices—before they vote at 4.45 this afternoon, given the number of emails that they have recei...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod (Strathkelvin and Bearsden) (SNP) The Glasgow event was incredibly well organised, not just on our side but by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations. A lot of people came and truly engaged with how the Parliament goes about producing legislation.

I picked out two things from the event. One is a great concern ab...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod I have been pursuing issues around stage 1 of the legislative process. During our inquiry, most witnesses have said that the stage 1 process is good, fairly robust and not in need of a lot of changes. However, people have raised issues about the pre-stage 1 process—pre-legislative consultation, draf...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod That is quite interesting. The committee always comes back to the question whether we need to change the standing orders to make something happen. If we want to get the committees to engage in the pre-legislative consultation process that the Government already carries out, do we need a standing ord...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod On your examples, when I was a member of the Health and Sport Committee, we took that approach knowing that the integration agenda was coming. The committee therefore did a short inquiry before that, which helped.

Can I go on to one of the other items that—



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod Another issue that has arisen is the documents that accompany bills when they are introduced. The documents that we have to introduce and their format have been laid down. Do we need to change our approach to make the documents more accessible?

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod As a librarian, I find that interesting, because it is not about the quantity of information that can be accessed; it is about the quality of that information. The question is whether we are putting out information that supports a bill and helps all the stakeholders to understand what it s about. It...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Fiona McLeod I have a question for Stuart Foubister. One document that has come up when we have talked about all the accompanying documents is the Scottish Parliament information centre briefing. It is not part of the suite of documents that has to be produced, but it is always produced. I understand that, becau...
