Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities (Nicola Sturgeon) With your permission, Deputy Presiding Officer, and, I am sure, on behalf of the entire chamber, I express my sincere condolences to the friends and family of Keane Wallis-Bennett. Keane’s death on Tuesday morning at Liberton high school is a tragedy that has horrified all of us.

A thorou...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I am quite flabbergasted that that is, in Johann Lamont’s mind, the big issue of the day. Nevertheless, she is the one who decides the questions that she asks.

All the relevant information about the trip to which Johann Lamont refers is, as far as I am aware, in the public domain. If ther...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I have absolutely no doubt that Johann Lamont would be standing in the chamber criticising the First Minister if he were not going overseas when appropriate to promote Scotland’s economic interests. However, when he does that, she stands here and criticises him as well. I think that we can safely co...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon This is desperate stuff from the leader of the Opposition. The key points about Alex Salmond’s visit to the Ryder cup are, first, that he was promoting Scotland as the host of this year’s Ryder cup. Secondly, the reason that I am able to quote the figures that I have just read out is that we are tra...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon Johann Lamont’s accusations and allegations are simply untrue. If her proposition is that money spent on the First Minister going overseas to promote the country is money spent on himself, I assume that she thinks that the more than £1 million spent on tartan week in 2006 was money spent on Jack McC...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities (Nicola Sturgeon) No plans in the near future.



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I start on a note of agreement with Ruth Davidson, although I am not promising that it will last very long. The Scottish economy is showing signs of recovery and we should all welcome that. I suggest that those signs of recovery are in spite of Westminster policy and not because of it.

I...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I am always delighted to stand apart. I am always delighted to stand up and argue the case for Scotland to be an independent country and I will continue to do it.

I did not misrepresent the Weir Group. I read out some positive comments that it had made and accepted the less-than-positive ...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities (Nicola Sturgeon) Matters of importance to the people of Scotland.



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I am not in opposition to that policy. We have said clearly that, at the point at which Scotland became independent, we would inherit the prevailing income tax rates and personal allowances. However, I am concerned about the overall impact of Westminster policies on the most vulnerable in our societ...
