Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Maureen Watt Labour members had to wait until Ed Miliband gave them their lead from down south. Their conflation of private and public house building is typical of them, but they are not believed by the sector or, indeed, the public, who are much more savvy than Labour gives them credit for.



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) I feel honoured to have played a part in taking the bill through Parliament, and I look forward to its being passed at decision time.

For me—and, I am sure, for many in the Parliament and in wider Scottish society—this is landmark legislation. Abolishing the right to buy social rented hou...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) When will Mary Fee point out that the decline has been due to a decline in the private house building sector but not in the public sector?



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) Mary Fee says that showmen and women make a valuable contribution to the economy.

The Convener Can you put the investment in context and tell us whether a figure has been put on the cost to the economy and the area of not taking over and investing in the airport?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
The Convener Does John Scott, as the local member, have any questions?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
The Convener Before the Scottish ministers purchased Glasgow Prestwick airport, the railway station there was the only one in Scotland to be in private ownership. What plans—if any—do you have for the ownership and development of the station?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
The Convener I want to ask about freight more generally. According to the table in our paper, overall freight carriage declined from 40,000 tonnes in 2002 to 10,000 tonnes in 2012.
