Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Jackson Carlaw (West Scotland) (Con) I thank Jim Hume for the way in which he opened this short debate, which turned out to be two debates for the price of one. I will concentrate on the motion and the amendments in the name of Mr Matheson and Dr Simpson, which are much more consistent with the longer narrative that the Parliament has ...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw (West Scotland) (Con) I am sorry, but this is the good cop, bad cop routine. Like the Deputy First Minister, who gave evidence on the airport last week, I am agnostic on the issue. I represent West Scotland and, until recently, had lived for several years in Troon. Therefore, I am well aware of the downturn in traffic at...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw Therein lies my concern. Until now, the airport has been seen as a secure gateway into broader Scotland. Is there a sufficient additional market out of Burns within Ayrshire to secure the viability of the airport?



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw That sounds realistic, for which I am grateful.

We have talked about people coming into Scotland, but the airport also depends on people flying out of Scotland to justify the investment that airlines would make in routes. That brings us back to pricing, location and all the more complicat...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw My final points reflect what the Deputy First Minister said last week. The Government has taken over responsibility for the airport not because it wants to, but because it feels that it has to. There is no pretence that the Deputy First Minister is an airport magnate with the ability to manage such ...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw I am content.



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw I observe only that Network Rail’s fortuitous announcement directly addresses a considerable number of the petitioner’s issues. Extending platforms at stations to allow six-car trains to stop will increase capacity, and the dualling of the line will increase service frequency and shorten journey tim...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw I am slightly concerned about straying into that area, because it is quite a big topic. In circumstances of force majeure, when signalling causes trains to be cancelled and people have to get on to one train, my experience is usually that the train goes much slower to reflect the fact that there are...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw It might be worth while asking Network Rail to provide a timetable for the next five years on when it expects to undertake the work. The press release was part of a broader package of announcements covering the whole five-year period, but it did not specifically state how and when this particular pr...

Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jackson Carlaw I remember Dr Morton’s evidence vividly; her case was forceful, compelling and well articulated. I am happy to support the recommendation, but I suggest that we note in the committee’s minutes our very strong support for the petition’s aims and our desire for it to succeed. In our watching brief, we...
