Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jim Eadie (Edinburgh Southern) (SNP) I endorse the view of other members that we should continue the petition while the management consultant is looking at the commercial viability of Prestwick.



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jim Eadie Never underestimate the power of this committee.



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jim Eadie I will not rise to the bait of Mr Carlaw’s comments. There has to be a balance and optimal care has to be the driver rather than cost reduction; the comments from other members are largely correct in that regard.



Public Petitions Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jim Eadie There is a tension between the need to promote economic growth at all costs and the need to reflect the views of local communities. There has been an expansion of these businesses in the south of Edinburgh, which I represent. There has to be a balance and it is necessary for each application to be t...

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jim Eadie (Edinburgh Southern) (SNP) Given its size and population, Scotland will never be, or aspire to be, a global superpower, but as the minister set out in his speech and as the Government has laid out in the white paper, we can be an active and good global citizen.

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Jim Eadie Sarah Boyack will know from my speeches in previous debates that I have put on record my appreciation of the contribution that the UK Government and the Department for International Development make, particularly in relation to Syria. We are not in disagreement on that.

The Scottish Gover...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Jim Eadie (Edinburgh Southern) (SNP) Good morning, minister. Can you provide the committee with an update on the national walking strategy, the development of which was announced in May 2012? What progress has been made since that announcement and what specific resources have been committed to the strategy’s rollout?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Jim Eadie It is clear from what you have said that the consultation period has been quite extensive. In addition to the time resource that you have mentioned, has a budget been committed to the strategy?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Jim Eadie That is helpful, minister.

You will know from previous evidence sessions of my interest in cycling. The Government’s ambition and target are for 10 per cent of all journeys to be made by bicycle by 2020 but, as their previous evidence to the committee made clear, the consensus of all the ...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Jim Eadie That is helpful.

When the Scottish Government published the cycling action plan for Scotland, its shared ambition was to meet the target of 10 per cent of all journeys being made by bicycle by 2020. Are we on target to meet that?
