Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I welcome the statement today and the announcement that the cabinet secretary made last week at the Public Petitions Committee. I also welcome the announcement about the booklet outlining the associated risks of the procedure. Does the booklet contain information on the possibility that, following t...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP)

1. To ask the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body how many incidents there have been in the Parliament complex since 2012 that have led to police action. (S4O-03388)



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
John Wilson How many of the incidents since 2012 that David Stewart has just detailed have led to court action? Moreover, can he reassure me about the security system for Parliament and members, particularly in the light of the chief executive’s memorandum of 11 June 2014 that offered training and tips in offic...

Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson (Central Scotland) (SNP) I, too, welcome the cabinet secretary’s announcement today that he will ask for use of the mesh devices to be suspended until the issue is resolved.

It seems from the cabinet secretary’s opening remarks that one difficulty is the accuracy of the information that is provided to the MHRA, a...

Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson The cabinet secretary said that the problem may be complications with the procedure rather than with the devices. Will your expert group, in breaking down the figures, seek to identify which incidents were caused by devices and which were caused by complications from the operation?



Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson I have a follow-up question for the cabinet secretary and Dr Elliot. The cabinet secretary is going to ask the acting chief medical officer to write to all health boards, requesting them to suspend future operations. What advice will be issued to GPs and others on advising patients why the suspensio...

Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson One of the joys of sitting at this end of the table is that I can see the reaction of the people in the public gallery. When you said that GPs had been written to three times and that information was available, their reaction made it clear that that information is not being imparted to the women who...

Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson The cabinet secretary has announced today that an expert group will consider the issue, and it is expected to report in January. As for the question whether we take evidence from a lawyer in the United States in a videoconference, I simply point out that a number of legal firms in Scotland are invol...

Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson As the clear majority view is that we take evidence from the lawyer in the United States, I agree with that course of action.



Public Petitions Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
John Wilson I was lucky enough to visit Brussels and meet commissioners a number of years ago. Even though other places might not want to hear the views of this place, I know that commissioners are keen to hear about the work that is being carried out by committees of this Parliament. The opportunity to speak t...
