Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) We have covered some of the points that I was going to ask about. I would like to put on the record my view that we need to get trust back into the system. Obviously, waygo and the right of assignation are important, but it would be interesting to hear people’s thoughts about rent reviews and so on,...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jim Hume Two weeks ago we had SLE, the NFUS and the STFA here; we saw quite a difference in their body language and the words that they were now using, which we all thought was quite constructive. Of course, we have to bear in mind that not everybody out there is a member of the NFUS, SLE or the STFA. Those ...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jim Hume The original proposal for the Firth of Forth MPA was for one large bank to be an MPA that would encompass the three smaller banks that the MPA covers now. Last week, we heard that the energy sector is concerned about the Firth of Forth MPA being there at all, whereas the environmentalists are concer...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jim Hume My question leads on neatly from that answer. One of the key policies in the draft management handbook for MPAs is to use the “best available scientific information”. The cabinet secretary mentioned that scientific information has been used for the Forth banks and for decisions on whether to dredge ...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jim Hume Obviously, it is not just the big energy companies that are doing science—we heard evidence that amateur naturalists are doing it, too. For example, they found out about the maerl beds off Arran. I wonder how quickly organisations such as the Government can react to new information that comes from t...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jim Hume You talked more about what has been and where we are now; I was thinking of future discoveries, if you like, on our sea bed. How quickly can the Government react to new discoveries of information regarding the sea bed?



Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) I welcome the opportunity to participate in the final stage of the bill, and I congratulate Dennis Robertson on all his good work in bringing the bill this far. I look forward to the bill being passed later today.

The blue badge scheme is an extremely important tool to enable the independ...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jim Hume (South Scotland) (LD) I am an MSP for South Scotland.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jim Hume I wanted to follow up on Mick Borwell’s comments about surveying.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Jim Hume Mick Borwell said that most of the surveying had taken place in areas where there had been oil and gas exploration. When we hear about cod and mackerel fisheries and so on, we are always told that the data is poor, and it would be interesting to hear others’ views or put into the mix others’ thought...
