Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Minister for Transport and Veterans (Keith Brown) Recently, the 70th anniversary commemorations of the D day landings on 6 June 1944 took place in Normandy, France, with widespread recognition across generations, young and old. We have to ask why the marking of an event that took place so long ago had such a draw and such an impact and why it gener...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Keith Brown I take the point. I refer to the figures that I have just mentioned and also to the fact that the veterans first point service is doing some important work on the issue just now. That should give us some more detail, which would be welcome all round.

Not all veterans are homeless, and not...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Keith Brown I note the point about support that the member has just made, and his earlier reference to training weekends. I am to meet Anna Soubry, a UK defence minister, next week and I will ask her whether she will allow the armed forces programme that Westminster runs for its members to be extended to the de...

Keith Brown Veterans commissioner.



Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Keith Brown On making more people aware of the armed forces generally, does Willie Rennie agree with Mark Griffin, David Stewart and Alex Fergusson that the armed forces parliamentary scheme—Willie Rennie will be aware of the scheme from his time at Westminster—could be usefully extended to this Parliament and ...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Keith Brown It is fairly clear from today’s speeches that there is unanimous admiration for our armed forces community, which does not surprise me. As I have said in previous debates, members should be aware of how much that level of consensus and unanimity is appreciated by the armed forces community.

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Keith Brown That is a very worthwhile suggestion and I undertake to look into it. Our previous representations have been made at ministerial and MOD level, but we will take that suggestion forward.

I pay tribute to Alex Fergusson and Annabelle Ewing for their work in the cross-party group on armed fo...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Keith Brown The charities are governed by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator as much as anybody else. Alex Fergusson makes his point well, but it is down to Veterans Scotland, which is the organisation that would bring the charities together, to take on that role. I am happy to see that happen.

Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
The Minister for Transport and Veterans (Keith Brown) The construction of the Borders railway remains on schedule for completion in June 2015, with passenger services available by September 2015 following a period of driver training. We continue to examine with Network Rail possibilities for completion ahead of those timescales.



Meeting of the Parliament 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Keith Brown The member is right to highlight the benefits that will flow from the project, not least because people who have been disconnected from the railway network for nearly 40 years will be able to use the services, which will be frequent and moderately priced.

On further extensions, we have fo...
