Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Joan McAlpine (South Scotland) (SNP) It is very telling that, in drafting their amendments, the better together parties could not find it in themselves to leave the first clause of the Government motion in place:

“That the Parliament agrees that Scotland is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, is rich in human talen...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Joan McAlpine The member talks about pooling resources across the United Kingdom. The UK welfare cuts will take £6 billion out of the Scottish welfare budget and will result in up to 100,000 children being plunged into poverty. How does he see that as a fair pooling of resources?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine (South Scotland) (SNP) Good morning. I want to develop the points that my colleague Alison Johnstone raised about tax.

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine And the 5,242 full-time jobs in Edinburgh are part of that impact. Does the £261 million include tax revenue?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine So the figure includes VAT.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine I suppose that it is a similar situation with the jobs. The income tax and national insurance generated, too, will be included.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine But those jobs also generate tax, national insurance and things like that.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine And your main public funders are the City of Edinburgh Council and the Scottish Government.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Joan McAlpine Absolutely. I totally understand that it is a very sophisticated operation, but your main public funders are the City of Edinburgh Council and the Scottish Government.
