Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Marco Biagi (Edinburgh Central) (SNP) As the member for the Edinburgh Central constituency and someone who, when I was a student, used to stand on the Royal Mile handing out fliers to get people to come to my show, I never needed to be convinced of the great strength of Edinburgh. Nevertheless, I take a bit of credit for having pushed t...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Marco Biagi An important issue for the festival that drives a lot of the costs is the venue chains, such as Assembly, Gilded Balloon, C and the rest. How is the relationship between the fringe in particular and the venue chains, and how important will it be to the on-going economic viability of artists wanting ...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Marco Biagi A lot of people are involved in the fringe, and a lot of them work mainly for the venues. The participants might not be making profits, but the venue chains seem to be pretty good at doing so. What is the balance between paid employees and volunteers in the venue chains? I am sorry that we do not ha...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Marco Biagi I guess that I am asking the question because of my interest in the cui bono issue—in other words, who benefits? Do the people who make the fringe happen—those who staff the box office, man the lighting and all of that—also benefit?

Another question occurred to me just as I sat down. I ha...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Marco Biagi That—and engaging, spirited, convincing and persuasive.



Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Marco Biagi (Edinburgh Central) (SNP) I am the MSP who represents Edinburgh Central.



Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Marco Biagi We hear a lot about the great new housing options approach. Councils are supposed to be running housing options teams that provide people with advice if they get into housing difficulties. I would be interested to know if anyone has had direct experience of that approach. If so, has it been a good o...

Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Marco Biagi Has anybody dealt with a housing options team in a local authority?



Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Marco Biagi I have a little follow-up question. There will always be an element of people having to present to local authorities, but, whether we call it a housing options approach or something else, how can we best make that service as friendly as possible for young people and care leavers in particular? Do we...

Equal Opportunities Committee 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Marco Biagi When people move beyond the emergency accommodation stage to securing long-term or permanent tenancies—they are usually tenancies—are there issues with landlords making property available? Is such a step realistic?
