Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Kevin Stewart (Aberdeen Central) (SNP) Will the member give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Kevin Stewart (Aberdeen Central) (SNP) I pay tribute to Dennis Robertson for introducing the bill, which I hope will receive unanimous support. Like many other members, I realise that it is not always easy to steer a member’s bill through Parliament. As well as paying tribute to Mr Robertson, we should acknowledge the work that his staff...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Kevin Stewart The minister again mentioned the two working groups that are considering various aspects. Will the Parliament have an opportunity to consider and help improve the guidance? The best things about the process have included the level of input from various folks and, as I said earlier, the fact that com...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Kevin Stewart Like the minister, I would like to see the demise of personal independence payments, which are really frightening some folk. I am pleased that the Scottish Government has made moves to ensure that as many folk as possible still qualify for passported benefits. One of the things that I come across—as...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener (Kevin Stewart) Good morning and welcome to the committee’s 21st meeting in 2014.

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener Agenda item 2 is an oral evidence session with the Accounts Commission for Scotland on its most recent local government overview report. I welcome Douglas Sinclair, chair of the Accounts Commission for Scotland; Fraser McKinlay, director of performance audit and best value at Audit Scotland; and Gor...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener Thank you very much, Mr Sinclair. You mentioned the demographic time bomb of an ageing population. We have just dealt with a Scottish statutory instrument on local government pension schemes. What overview do Audit Scotland and the Accounts Commission have in scrutinising local government pension sc...

Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener So the pension funds report separately to you. In addition to that, do you carry out any forensic audit of individual pension funds? Do you regularly pluck out one or two funds to have a closer look?



Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener I will continue with the theme of the ageing population. Have you found any examples of really good practice by local authorities in making preparations to deal with the demographic difficulties that we have ahead of us?



Local Government and Regeneration Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener I certainly welcome our ability to have regular sight of your reports, from which we garner information that we often use in our scrutiny work. It seems to me that, although your reports highlight a lot of good practice, other organisations do not look at those examples and bring them into play to a...
