Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland) (Lab) Does the minister acknowledge that, even if all the changes are made that Sir Ian Wood recommends in his report on maximising economic recovery of oil and gas, Sir Ian believes:

“The Scottish Government central prediction of what’s still to come is between 45 per cent and 60 per cent too ...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland) (Lab) Will the First Minister give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Lewis Macdonald I am grateful to the current member for Aberdeenshire East for giving way in that gracious fashion. Can he tell me, in light of the revision this morning of his central estimate of future oil production from 24 billion barrels of oil equivalent to 15 or 16 billion barrels, his revised estimate of th...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland) (Lab) An independent Scotland, or a political, social, economic and currency union with our closest neighbours and friends: at the end of this campaign, it is a very simple choice, and it is a choice for the people of Scotland to make.

The campaign really is historic, because after 15 years of ...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Lewis Macdonald Not at the moment.

If that is done, future revenues for Government might come in at around £5 billion a year, as they did last year. That is £2 billion a year less than the Scottish National Party predicted, or a shortfall of around £370 a year for every man, woman and child living in Sco...

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Lewis Macdonald They have a choice to stay together, renew our union and seek to make it stronger and better in the years ahead or, alternatively, to listen to Mr Salmond and walk away. That is a choice not just for this generation, but for the generations to come. I look forward to the majority of the people of Sc...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland) (Lab) Has the minister compared the N-56 report with the report from the carbon tracker initiative, which has also come out this week and which finds that capital investment in major projects west of Shetland will depend on the price of oil being $20 a barrel higher than the price of Brent crude today? If...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland) (Lab) The minister will be aware of the rapid rate of economic growth, particularly in the Dyce area around the airport and on Dyce Drive. When does the minister expect to come to a decision about timetabling of the priority work on the western peripheral route, particularly that which will connect Aberde...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland) (Lab)

3. To ask the Scottish Government whether the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth has allocated sufficient budget to meet in full the costs of revenue funding arising from capital investment in the proposed new cancer centre and women’s hospital in Aberdeen. ...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Lewis Macdonald I am sure that NHS Grampian will welcome that commitment. For staff and users, the big question is when the work on the new facilities will begin and when it will be completed, given that the Government announced its intention to progress the projects earlier in the current financial year. Can Mr Sw...
