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...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jamie Hepburn That is why, although Jackie Baillie is right to say that it takes political will to make decisions, the constitution is important in this case. This Government has the political will, but it does not have the means to exercise that will. That is why we need a yes vote on 18 September.



Welfare Reform Committee 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Jamie Hepburn (Cumbernauld and Kilsyth) (SNP) My question is not so much about the policy objective of the order, which I think the whole committee agrees with. We will find out in a minute. It is more a procedural question about the role of the Westminster Parliament after we, as I presume we will, agree the instrument today. How does the proc...
