Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Jamie Hepburn (Cumbernauld and Kilsyth) (SNP)

1. To ask the Scottish Government what assessment it has made of the recent comments by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions regarding further changes to welfare benefits and the impact that these changes would have on poverty in Scotland. (S4O-03481)



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Jamie Hepburn In his speech last week, Iain Duncan Smith said that his Government sought to focus on “independence, not dependence”. Does the minister agree that, for the more than 100,000 disabled Scots who stand to lose about £1,120 from their income, the performance of Iain Duncan Smith’s Government will actua...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Jamie Hepburn (Cumbernauld and Kilsyth) (SNP)

4. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the latest round of funding from the bus investment fund. (S4O-03454)



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Jamie Hepburn A project that benefited from the first round of funding was the North Lanarkshire connector, but North Lanarkshire Council failed to ensure that the new service connected with Cumbernauld—the biggest town in its area—or Kilsyth, despite many local people reporting to me problems about accessing dec...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn (Cumbernauld and Kilsyth) (SNP) In his letter to the convener, Mr Gauke says that

“The UK Government has … been consistently clear”

on the block grant adjustment, which was a bit of a surprise to me because we would not necessarily be here if that was the case. What is your view on the UK Government’s consist...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn When Mr Gauke was here, I put it to him that the Barnett abatement mechanism that the UK Government proposes is an altering of the Barnett formula which, of course, the UK Government said it would not do. He said in response that it is not an alteration; it is just tweaking it. Is that just semantic...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn In his letter, Mr Gauke says that the Scottish Government’s position, which you have articulated,

“wouldn’t be consistent with the UK Government’s aim of increasing the Scottish Government’s accountability.”

However, equally, you are saying that the proposed Barnett abatement m...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn From what you have said, cabinet secretary, it sounds as though the Scottish Government has been reasonable and has tried to accommodate the UK Government’s perspective. In what way is the UK Government moving towards accommodating the Scottish Government’s perspective?



Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn (Cumbernauld and Kilsyth) (SNP) I say to Alex Rowley that I am very proud of this Scottish Government’s efforts to tackle and mitigate the effects of the bedroom tax by funnelling additional moneys into the Scottish welfare fund to make up for the shortfall that was handed down by the UK Government in terms of council tax benefit....

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn Scotland has voted Labour at UK general elections for the entirety of my life and for many years before, but the Tories have formed the Government of Scotland for two thirds of that period. If that is Labour’s prescription for providing a fairer social security system and tackling poverty, what happ...
