Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Johann Lamont (Glasgow Pollok) (Lab) This is another sad day for the Scottish Parliament, as we gather to reflect on the loss of Margo MacDonald—yet another of the class of 1999 who has been taken from her family, and from us, all too soon. I extend the sympathies of Scottish Labour to Margo’s family at this saddest of times. Our thoug...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont The facts of the matter are very simple. In all of that nonsense, there was no answer to a simple question about spending public money. The public deserve to know.

The First Minister spent £500,000 to go to the Ryder cup, but he cannot, or will not, explain what he spent on himself. Was i...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont It has been said that we can tell when the First Minister is “unadjacent to the truth”. Nicola Sturgeon’s lips are moving. [Interruption.]



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont It is an issue of transparency, and now the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister are refusing to answer.

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont Secondly, nobody is disputing that there should be visits abroad. The Deputy First Minister is able to quote figures about previous trips, but the point is that we cannot quote the figures for the cost of Alex Salmond to go to the Ryder cup. [Interruption.]



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont First, there is an issue of public trust and accountability for the public purse. [Interruption.]



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont —but now he and his Deputy First Minister are refusing to answer the question that he himself asked. For the information of the Deputy First Minister, the First Minister has not answered the freedom of information request and he has not answered a series of parliamentary questions either.


Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont We know that Alex Salmond is notorious for not answering the question that he was asked—[Interruption.]



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Johann Lamont I thank the Deputy First Minister for that statement. Throughout the chamber, we share the sentiments that she expressed, at the saddest of times for the family, the school and all concerned.

Alex Salmond is off to the United States again today. I hope that he has remembered his trews thi...

1. To ask the Deputy First Minister what engagements she has planned for the rest of the day. (S4F-02011)
