Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
John Wilson Will Jenny Marra give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I speak as a former member of the Trades Union Congress national minimum wage enforcement group and director of the Scottish Low Pay Unit. I welcome the debate on the living wage, as it raises important issues that we all have to take on board when we make demands for things such as the living wage....

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP) Would the member like to comment on Tony Blair’s opposition to the working time directive, which extended to his campaigning behind the scenes to ensure that the UK did not have to introduce it and urging the leaders of other European countries to reject the working time directive?



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
John Wilson No. I do not have time.

Although Mr Stewart’s bill has helped to provide a context as it has progressed, in that its intention and clear objective is to amend current statute in respect of the Building (Scotland) Act 2003, the general thrust of the bill raises concerns about how local aut...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I offer my congratulations to David Stewart on introducing his bill in such a consensual manner that he has actually brought on board the Scottish Government to lend its support to the bill’s progress.

Many people assume that they understand what is meant by dangerous and defective buildi...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
John Wilson If I picked up Mr Robertson correctly, he said that it will be up to local authorities to interpret the regulations that will be introduced and to determine how they will use the powers in the bill. Would it not be better to have guidance that makes it clear that the powers should be applied equally...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
John Wilson Given that Ms Grant has raised the issue of fines and the criminal records that go with them, does the Scottish Government hold any figures on the number of cases in which people have been taken to court and fined for abuse or misuse of blue badges?



Local Government and Regeneration Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
John Wilson To paraphrase Cameron Buchanan, Westminster is completely different from Scotland—and not just in terms of the blue badge parking restrictions. However, that is a debate for another day.

Mr Robertson commented on the parking restrictions that apply to parking on yellow and double yellow l...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
John Wilson It is fine to do all the campaigning to raise awareness of the misuse of blue badges, but we heard evidence last week and received follow-up written evidence about the number of cars that local authorities have towed away because of the fraudulent use of blue badges. The written evidence suggests th...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP) Good morning. The minister said that using a blue badge fraudulently could save someone up to £6,000. Are the penalties for fraudulent use of blue badges high enough?
