Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby (West Scotland) (Lab) One of the concerns raised by local authorities is the length of time that is required for the Care Inspectorate to undertake the necessary checks and inspections of any new facilities or extensions. Will it be able to undertake all the necessary checks before the deadline without diluting them?

Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby And you can confirm that there will be no shortcuts in the checks and that the standard checks will apply.



Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby With regard to new facilities and extensions to existing ones, concerns have been raised about planning permission and lack of confirmed capital revenue for individual local authorities. As authorities have only one or two planning cycles prior to 31 October, can you assure us that all planning requ...

Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby Can you reassure us that this will not be an issue come 31 October?



Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby If, as you have suggested, there is expansion this year and expansion is planned for next year, is there not in a financial sense—as well as in a practical sense, what with the provision of new or extended facilities—a need for local authorities to have the capital funds required to pay for the curr...

Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby There have been some teething problems and difficulty with the eligibility criteria and working out who is eligible. How will providers be expected to differentiate between families receiving the contributory jobseekers allowance that is given for the first six months, regardless of family income, a...

Education and Culture Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Neil Bibby There are obviously some complexities here. On the administration of the process, you said that checks already take place for free school meals, but we are talking about two-year-olds, who are obviously a different set of children—this involves more children. What resource support will local authori...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Neil Bibby (West Scotland) (Lab) I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the stage 1 debate on the Historic Environment Scotland Bill. It has appeared to me for some time, during the evidence sessions of the Education and Culture Committee—and, indeed, this afternoon—that there is no groundswell of objection to the proposed merg...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Neil Bibby I thank the cabinet secretary for that intervention. I am making the point that we need to look at the matter further, and to consider all the scenarios and possible implications.

I have another point to make on finance. The Scottish Government cannot currently give us an estimate for the...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Neil Bibby We need to consider that issue further as the bill progresses, and I hope that the Scottish Government will continue to respond to any such concerns from stakeholders.

As I said, I support the general principles of the bill and hope that the Scottish Government can now provide clear assur...
