Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
George Adam The order is just about the legal requirements and is the result of work done in coalition with our colleagues in COSLA.



Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) Is it the case that we are working with local authority colleagues to ensure that August is still the start date?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) I quite like the idea of software for the bill team to use when the bill is going through Parliament. My current system, which I used for the Children and Young People (Scotland) Bill and the Post-16 Education (Scotland) Bill, is very analogue—it could have been made in the 1970s. I think that physi...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) I thank my colleagues and everyone who gave evidence to the committee, as well as the clerks for their work when we were going through stage 1.

It has been interesting and exciting. That might sound surprising because we are talking about how the Historic Environment (Scotland) Bill propo...

Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
George Adam My ambition is to ensure that the people of Scotland have the opportunity to create the kind of country that we want. I want us, collectively, to be able to take our place in the world.

We would have the opportunity to make it easier for parents to get back to work by transferring the mo...

Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) I always welcome the opportunity to discuss Scotland’s future—the positive case for independence, as opposed to the negative reasons to stay in the union, which we continually hear from the Opposition parties. There is always a positive idea for us to talk about: the values and priorities that an in...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
George Adam I am closing, thanks.

We should look at that option to take the scheme to the next level.

I welcome the debate and all the fantastic work that is done in communities throughout Scotland as a result of cashback for communities. However, I think that there is a way that we can ta...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
George Adam I am talking about the many positive differences that the community’s access to that funding is making. That facility was not available to that football club in the past, so I think that I will stick to the positive nature of that.

Only last week, the Cabinet Secretary for Justice announ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 June 2014 : Thursday, June 12, 2014
George Adam (Paisley) (SNP) I welcome this debate and I want to talk about the many benefits of cashback for communities. The very idea of money coming from those who are involved in criminal behaviour and being invested in our communities is exciting and is extremely popular with members of the public. As the cabinet secretar...

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 05 June 2014 : Thursday, June 05, 2014
George Adam I was coming from a factual perspective, as I have been a councillor and have been on a licensing board. After the Licensing (Scotland) 2005 Act was enacted I would be in a committee, making a decision, and a solicitor or a lawyer would say, “Ah well, that is a problem with the act, councillor.” I w...
