Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
John Finnie I am grateful to the minister for that detailed response. The minister is aware of the level of disengagement that there is with the educational process among the Gypsy Traveller community. That is particularly the case in secondary education and it is particularly the case with young men. Will he l...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
John Finnie (Highlands and Islands) (Ind)

6. To ask the Scottish Government what assistance it provides to local authorities for the education of Gypsy Travellers. (S4O-03406)

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
John Finnie I have a couple of brief questions, if I may, convener.



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
John Finnie But who are the members of that group? Did you select them? Were they nominated by other organisations? The vast majority of the public are untouched by many of the things that happen. We talk about involving the education authorities in relation to young people, but the people who are most likely t...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
John Finnie I am pleased that you do not use management speak.



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
