Public Petitions Committee 23 June 2015 : Tuesday, June 23, 2015


Kenny MacAskill

I think that the petition should be closed. There is a good deal of sympathy for Mr McLean, but—as we see from the Sheriffs Association submission—it would involv...



Public Petitions Committee 23 June 2015 : Tuesday, June 23, 2015


Kenny MacAskill

It might be premature to do anything. I am at a loss to see what we should do. There is a suggestion that we get further information, but the subject does not see...



Public Petitions Committee 23 June 2015 : Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Kenny MacAskill

The Parliament has legislated for a sentencing council and the Government is in the process of establishing it. It is not yet up and running, but the direction of...



Public Petitions Committee 09 June 2015 : Tuesday, June 09, 2015


Kenny MacAskill

Do you also agree that the mandatory sentence for a murder is a life sentence and that although people can be released on parole they are on lifelong licence unti...



Public Petitions Committee 09 June 2015 : Tuesday, June 09, 2015


Kenny MacAskill (Edinburgh Eastern) (SNP)
