Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) I speak on behalf of many constituents in saying that there are genuine fears about how local justice will be dispensed across South Scotland as a result of Scottish Government closure orders last June.

We have had members’ business debates on the issue before. In 2002, Christine Grahame ...

Jim Hume Will the member take an intervention?



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jim Hume Mr Lamont talked about Christine Grahame and other members voting for closures. Does he not think that it was hypocritical that, just a few weeks before that, in December 2012, Christine Grahame stated in her Christmas message:

“Have a good Christmas. In the New Year the fight goes on to ...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Jim Hume Duns sheriff court covers not only Duns but the whole of what used to be called Berwickshire.

Accessibility is disappearing, and that is...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) At the top of page 3, the note on the instruments says:

“Brucellosis is a disease of cattle”.

My father suffered from brucellosis most of his life, so it can, obviously, be passed on to humans. It might be worth noting that at this stage.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Jim Hume I point out to Claudia Beamish that the geese are winter visitors, so they will be clearing from the area now and going north.

I am quite content with the way things are going in the committee, but I would also like what Aberdeenshire Council said to be noted. Other areas of Scotland that...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Jim Hume Making it say “relevant” would allow the committees that we know fine are relevant to slip out. That is a problem. No offence is meant to the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Jim Hume Perhaps the list should be a bit more prominent rather than putting it into a footnote.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Jim Hume Do we need “if there is sufficient demand”? Does that not weaken the point?
