Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Gil Paterson (Clydebank and Milngavie) (SNP) TUPE has been mentioned and I have a couple of questions on it, which I will round up. I take it that someone who is employed by a dispensing GP is employed solely by the GP and that the health service does not participate in that. Is that right?



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Gil Paterson So the health service has no input into the number of people who are employed in a location, who those people are and what they do. Is that right?



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Gil Paterson (Clydebank and Milngavie) (SNP) Cabinet secretary, in your opening statement and in your evidence so far, you have made a lot of reference to the hard-to-reach areas. You have answered most of what I was going to ask you, but I wondered whether there are any particular technical blocks in the way and challenges that are still to b...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Gil Paterson I get the idea from the reaction to it that my question was a bit of an understatement about challenges for Scotland and the terrain.



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Gil Paterson That leads on to another question on hard-to-reach areas.

In his oral evidence to the committee, Robert Madelin from the European Commission described the communication infrastructure as

“a utility, and ... a crucial public good”.—[Official Report, Infrastructure and Capital I...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Gil Paterson Given that the funding streams are there—I would regard them as a general population subsidy—vast numbers of the population will benefit from the investment that is leading to the infrastructure being put in place. Somewhere down the line, might the Government need to think about areas in Scotland—i...
