Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (SNP) Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (SNP) I am pleased to be able to take part in the debate. Taxation may not be everyone’s most exciting topic, but I find it extremely interesting, and the bill is particularly significant, as it is to become the underpinning legislation as we move forward, whatever the constitutional settlement.


Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (SNP) I am the MSP for Glasgow Shettleston, which is part of the east end of Glasgow.



Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
John Mason With regard to one-bedroom flats, should we assume that it is best for everybody to have their own flat, or should we assume, as the UK Government does, that it is best for everybody to share? Should that be decided on a case-by-case basis? Is it best for some people to stay on their own and best fo...

Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
John Mason I have certainly had a case in my constituency in which it was suggested that it can be very difficult to persuade the council that somebody is unintentionally homeless. The council wanted to know if the person had been sofa surfing and all the details of all the places where they had stayed, which ...

Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
John Mason So you are saying that we should just say “homeless” and that should be it, full stop.



Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (SNP) My question is on timescales. In your letter, Mr Swinney, you say that

“there should be no cumulative gain or loss to the Scottish budget over a long period extending to 2030”,

which is kind of what I thought we were looking at. However, Mr Gauke’s letter says:

“So w...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
John Mason It seems to me that there are many other factors that could have an impact before we get to 2030. Almost anything could happen in the next 15 years. For example, I would like to see a flatter system in Scotland, in which incomes and house prices were less diverse. If that were to happen, it would ha...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
John Mason I quoted Mr Gauke’s letter, which states:

“the Scottish Government would be expected to make substantial gains”

Have you or the UK Government calculated what those figures would be? What amounts are we talking about? They are not major taxes, so I suspect that the amounts would...

Finance Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
John Mason Can you give any idea what kind of figures the UK Government, or you, are talking about?
