Meeting of the Parliament 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
Jim Eadie (Edinburgh Southern) (SNP)

The City of Edinburgh Council has committed 7 per cent of its transport budget to cycling. With that in mind, may I invite the Deputy First Minister to match that ambition and allocate some of the funds that are coming to Scotland under the Barnett formula to cycling, so that the Government is in the strongest possible position to meet its vision of 10 per cent of all journeys being made by bicycle by 2020, to meet our ambitious climate change targets and to make people healthier? What better return on investment could there be than that?



Meeting of the Parliament 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
Jim Eadie

The Citizens Advice Scotland report found that nearly one in four councils report that they do not feel that there is enough childcare for working parents. What more can the Scottish Government do in conjunction with councils to increase the provision of childcare across Scotland and to address specific concerns, including the need for summer holiday childcare for school-aged children and the need for childcare in Edinburgh because school finishes at lunchtime on Fridays? Both of those situations present a real difficulty for working parents on low incomes, who struggle to pay for increased childcare on Fridays during term time and for childcare during the summer months.

To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the Citizens Advice Scotland report, “Working at the Edge...Childcare”. (S4O-03812)

Tell us.



Meeting of the Parliament 10 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Jim Eadie

I thank Murdo Fraser for giving way. Does he accept that this Parliament, even after the Smith commission proposals have been enacted, will be responsible only for 40 per cent of its revenue base? In what way is that “extensive”?

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 03 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 03, 2014

That concludes the committee’s public business. As agreed, we will now move into private session.

11:40 Meeting continued in private until 11:47.  

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 03 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 03, 2014
The Convener

Agenda item 5 is consideration of a negative Scottish statutory instrument. The purpose of the order is to prescribe under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 the form of notices of discharge of potential liability for costs, and it is issued under the Title Conditions (Scotland) Act 2003 and the Tenements (Scotland) Act 2004.

The committee will now consider any issues that it wishes to raise in reporting to Parliament on the instrument. As no motions to annul have been lodged, does the committee agree not to make any recommendations in relation to the instrument?

Members indicated agreement.



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 03 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 03, 2014
The Convener

I thank the panellists not just for bringing a smile to Mike MacKenzie’s face this morning, but for answering all our questions so fully.
