Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) I refer to my convenership of the cross-party group on Malawi.

I, too, am pleased to take part in the debate, although I am perplexed about why it qualifies as a members’ business debate. I note that very few members have signed the motion.

The motion is just the latest part o...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP)

1. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the finding in the report by N-56 that North Sea oil and gas revenues could be six times higher than the Office for Budget Responsibility has forecast. (S4T-00786)



Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Maureen Watt I am sure that the minister will join me in welcoming the report’s endorsement of the Scottish Government’s plans to set up an energy fund. Given that Westminster has failed consistently to set up an energy fund, does he agree that the only way to ensure that current and future generations benefit f...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Maureen Watt As the N-56 report says, and as Donald Mackay—as the minister mentioned—has said, the OBR forecasts grossly underestimate the value of Scotland’s oil. Does the minister agree that, given the increasing scepticism from a range of respected commentators, the OBR’s forecasts have lost all credibility?<...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) I thank the cabinet secretary for making sure that the priority is to secure a new owner for the shipyard. We have had several conversations about how there can be diversification at the yard.

Can the cabinet secretary confirm that Dales Engineering Services in Peterhead has taken over so...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) The cabinet secretary referred to the document “The Choice”, in which the Labour Party has recently raised the prospect of patient charges in England and of

“fewer services being provided free at the point of need”

In England. Is the Labour Party in England wrong? How would tha...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP)

10. To ask the Scottish Government what progress is being made on the construction of the Aberdeen western peripheral route. (S4O-03460)



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Maureen Watt I was pleased to join the minister in my constituency on Monday for that announcement. Can we have an assurance that the work will be accelerated where possible, as part of the commitment to provide decent infrastructure for the north-east, which previous Governments have failed to do?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener (Maureen Watt) Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the 20th meeting in 2014 of the Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee. I remind everybody to switch off their mobile devices because they affect the broadcasting system.

Under agenda item 1, I seek the committee’s agreement to take item 4 i...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener Agenda item 2 is the committee’s follow-up inquiry into homelessness in Scotland.

In 2011-12, the committee conducted an inquiry into the Scottish Government’s commitment to abolish the priority need test from the assessment of homelessness applications. In its report, the committee unde...
