Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (SNP) Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
John Mason (Glasgow Shettleston) (SNP) I very much welcome the cabinet secretary’s announcement of £100 million for school infrastructure. That is incredibly encouraging, especially as schools in Glasgow and beyond have been in a poor state for some time. Can the cabinet secretary give us any idea of the timescale for that work?

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
John Mason When a resident in Springfield Road leaves their house, they pass through a small garden and on to the pavement, and there is then an 8-foot fence immediately in front of them, which is not particularly attractive and will sit there for three months.

Finance Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
John Mason I have a final question. We have talked about the Barnett formula and how much resource Scotland should get on the basis of need and all sorts of things. Are there other factors in the equation? For example, Scotland contributes more, therefore Scotland should get more. If Scotland votes no, should ...

Finance Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
John Mason Do you think that there is an appetite to change that system in the next few years?



Finance Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
John Mason You are putting the case for the whole thing needing a serious examination, quite apart from the question of independence and devolution. Do you think that the whole thing needs to be looked at seriously?



Finance Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
John Mason Professor Trench, in paragraph 20 of your evidence you mention the national insurance fund. There is a misconception about national insurance, as people think that there is a fund sitting there with all their contributions in it. You have also argued against Scotland handling national insurance and ...
