Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) Will the cabinet secretary advise campaigners who are here today what support will now be offered to mesh patients who have already undergone a traumatic experience and are now left with health complications? Will he also advise what discussions he will have with the European Commission on the regul...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) I asked last week whether netting was a possibility, and we were told by some of the witnesses that it was illegal. Can you clarify the situation in that respect? Is it legal or illegal, or is it legal under special circumstances?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume You mentioned dispatching them, as well.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume So licences are being issued at the moment for netting—not just for ringing, but for dispatching the birds.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume Is it a potential option?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume I have two or three lines of questioning on that. We have heard about goose shooting on Orkney and in other areas. People are looking for different markets. There is perhaps a clash between sporting shooting and professional controllers. Is there anything in the licensing arrangements that could hel...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume Are you suggesting that, because the licences are for the close season, the controllers are not able to shoot during the sporting season?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume No.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume I have a final point on the market for geese. We heard in evidence that the Government has imposed restrictions on the sale of geese outwith communities, especially outwith the islands. It seems to be a bit odd not to allow geese to be sold on the mainland. Why are those restrictions there? Will the...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Jim Hume Are we perhaps past the stage at which the geese are being overexploited? Has the population got to a stage at which it is unsustainable? You mentioned that there would not be a supply all year round. However, many other food substances are seasonal. People would not expect to have geese, strawberri...
