Meeting of the Parliament 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Mike MacKenzie (Highlands and Islands) (SNP)

Will the minister tell us a bit more about what assistance the Scottish Government has provided to improve the decommissioning facilities in Shetland and allow the area to capture that valuable economic opportunity?

Meeting of the Parliament 10 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Mike MacKenzie

I am struggling to understand why a percentage point here or there in relation to powers over taxation revenue is important. Surely what is important is the ability of taxation powers to work together to improve economic growth and create wealth. I am interested to hear Mr Brown’s explanation on that point.

Health and Sport Committee 09 December 2014 : Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Mike MacKenzie

Thank you.



Health and Sport Committee 09 December 2014 : Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Mike MacKenzie

At last week’s meeting we took evidence from a number of witnesses who commented that some of the early years pilots are a bit short lived and that data and evidence that would give an understanding of their effectiveness are not collected. Do you feel that the appointment of Harry Burns will help to ensure that we have an approach that is based on the gathering of evidence and data so that we can understand what the best and most effective interventions are?



Health and Sport Committee 09 December 2014 : Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Mike MacKenzie

It is interesting that you both said that the early years is an issue that crosses portfolios and should involve all statutory partners. In that vein, do you welcome Sir Harry Burns’s appointment to the Council of Economic Advisers? Does that perhaps signal a greater focus on health inequalities in the early years?



Health and Sport Committee 09 December 2014 : Tuesday, December 09, 2014
Mike MacKenzie (Highlands and Islands) (SNP)

I think that I am correct in saying that the Government has given a commitment to correct the points that the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee has raised, and we should welcome that.
