3. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with stakeholders about the Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Bill. (S4O-03493)



Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Given that 87 per cent of those who responded to the Government’s consultation opposed the pl...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Jamie McGrigor (Highlands and Islands) (Con) In every language under the sun and in every generation since time began, the importance of birds and bees has been emphasised.

Jamie McGrigor (Highlands and Islands) (Con)

1. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to provide communities in the Highlands and Islands with access to fast and reliable broadband. (S4O-03441)



Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Jamie McGrigor Notwithstanding the Deputy First Minister’s reply, what comfort can she offer to constituents in communities such as Whitehouse, in north Kintyre, where there are no immediate plans for an upgrade to the local BT exchange?
