Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands) (LD) I thank the cabinet secretary for outlining the detail of what lay behind the problems and for his response to Alex Johnstone. The cabinet secretary is right to say that there were more protracted delays in restoring power in my constituency. He provided the Parliament with reassurance that there sh...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands) (LD) Thank you for the advance billing, Presiding Officer.

This is a brief but important debate and I am delighted to take part in it. I very much welcome the Scottish Government’s investment plan.

In the short time available to me, I will cover the areas of access and skills.

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands) (LD) It is over to Willie Coffey, isn’t it?



Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands) (LD) I am delighted that we have had the debate and I am proud of the fact that Scottish Liberal Democrats have enabled it to happen.

Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands) (LD) Will the member give way?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Liam McArthur Is that being looked at? Is it seen as a difficulty that requires a solution, or is it assumed that that is just the way of things?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Liam McArthur Will that make a difference to the portability of qualifications for apprentices who choose to move from south to north or north to south?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Liam McArthur Does anyone else have views on that?



Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Liam McArthur There seems to be an issue with the working relationship, as opposed to saying that SDS is not responsible for a particular thing and Jobcentre Plus is. Would it make more sense, would the system work more effectively and would you have a better working relationship if some of the responsibilities w...

Education and Culture Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Liam McArthur I will link back to the questions from Colin Beattie and Joan McAlpine. We operate in a highly integrated market and there are obvious benefits in having skills that are recognised and portable in that market. Different Governments will—understandably—have priorities that they want to achieve, and I...
