Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP) Thank you, Mr Mackay, for that comment. Can I pursue that point to try to get some sense of how significant it is? As a layman in this context, I have no idea how productive land can be and how much more productive it can be if it is well managed. Are we talking about a factor of one to three—rangin...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don I heard what the cabinet secretary said about the 1991 workstream, so it might be that you will not be able to say much in answer to my question, but I would like to know where you think we might be going in relation to the right to buy and 1991 tenancies.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don Indeed.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don The evidence that we have heard suggests that a lot of the issues might be dealt with by modifying waygo or the right of assignation. I take it that you are considering those issues as ways of dealing with 1991 tenancies.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don I get the impression that this is a work in progress. We look forward to developments.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don At last week’s meeting, Calum Duncan of the Marine Conservation Society spoke about “citizen science”. Clearly, there are a lot of very capable people around who observe all sorts of things and report them accordingly. Does the Government have any particular perspective on how that can be encouraged...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don This is an issue that we picked up on last week. I understand that a further four marine protected areas have already been assessed but not designated. That is of particular interest to those who are concerned about dolphins, for example, which seem to be particularly covered by those areas. I am no...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Nigel Don I understand the point about the science. Clearly, if creatures move around, it is a tad difficult to work out where they prefer to be most of the time. I am sure that the scientific community accepts that. Is there any constraint other than good science on getting those MPAs designated as soon as p...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
The Convener (Nigel Don) I welcome members to the 25th meeting in 2014 of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee and ask members to switch off any mobile phones. We have apologies from Richard Baker, in whose place I welcome Mary Fee.

Under agenda item 1 it is proposed that the committee takes in private i...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
The Convener Today’s session on the bill allows us to take evidence from the Law Society of England and Wales, which, along with the City of London Law Society, is responsible for the practice note outlining the modern English law on execution in counterpart, which informed the bill.
