Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
John Lamont (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire) (Con) I welcome the debate and—unlike the other Borders MSP, apparently—the opportunity to stand up for local justice.

I completely agree with the tenor and content of Jim Hume’s motion, although I point out that, while court closures were recommended by the Scottish Court Service, the decision...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
John Lamont I thank the member for that point and I agree entirely. Back in June, SNP members of the Justice Committee, including Christine Grahame, apparently put party interests first and local people second. The SNP should not be proud of that trend, and I hope that SNP members will redeem themselves by oppo...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 12, 2014
John Lamont (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire) (Con)

4. To ask the Scottish Government how many bed days were lost due to delayed discharges in the NHS Borders area during the last three quarters of 2013. (S4O-02990)



Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 12, 2014
John Lamont The issue causes huge problems, not only for hospitals but for patients who are fit enough to leave hospital but are forced to wait before being discharged and allowed home. The figures show that the problem is far from being solved. There can be no doubt that something needs to be done to address i...

Meeting of the Parliament 06 March 2014 : Thursday, March 06, 2014
John Lamont (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire) (Con) I, too, begin by congratulating George Adam on securing this important debate.

I am pleased that we are acknowledging the achievement of the Scottish Fair Trade Forum in increasing public awareness of Fairtrade fortnight and of fairly traded products. Scotland should be proud to be leadin...

Meeting of the Parliament 04 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 04, 2014
John Lamont (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire) (Con) I, too, congratulate Claudia Beamish on securing the debate. However, I have not signed the motion and I do not support the calls that the motion advocates. I intend to give a different perspective on the debate, if I may.

In the United Kingdom, we take access to clean water for granted. ...

Meeting of the Parliament 04 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 04, 2014
John Lamont I think that I am the only member who is going to be putting this perspective in the debate, so I would like to use my time to cover the points that I want to make.

According to the water agreement of 1995, the Palestinian Authority should be preventing and repairing leaks in domestic pip...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 February 2014 : Thursday, February 20, 2014
John Lamont (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire) (Con)

1. To ask the Scottish Government whether it supports the restoration of train services to the Reston and East Linton stations. (S4O-02917)



Meeting of the Parliament 20 February 2014 : Thursday, February 20, 2014
John Lamont An additional study has been produced that sets out the improved business case that the minister sought for Reston and East Linton and, as the minister has said, Transport Scotland has stated that any companies bidding for the new ScotRail franchise will need to consider new stations at those locati...

Meeting of the Parliament 18 February 2014 : Tuesday, February 18, 2014
John Lamont (Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire) (Con) I am pleased to open the final stage debate on the City of Edinburgh Council (Leith Links and Surplus Fire Fund) Bill and to provide Parliament with some background on the bill and the committee’s scrutiny.
