Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP) You have taken me for the most part to where I was hoping that you would take me. Are we seeing trends—I think that we are—that suggest that this is a global issue? The Scottish Government has territorial responsibility, but the birds are responding to global weather patterns. Therefore, the Scottis...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Nigel Don Eileen Stuart said that there was some management shooting ahead of the season. Could we adapt the season so that we do not have to pay people to do what they would otherwise pay for the privilege of doing?



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP)

10. To ask the Scottish Government what importance it attaches to musical instrument tuition in schools. (S4O-03410)



Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Nigel Don The minister will recognise, as I do, that musical skills are not the only aspect of instrumental skills, which also bring some very real social benefits.

It seems that local authorities continue to find musical instrument tuition to be an easy budget to prune. I recognise their financial...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener (Nigel Don) I welcome members to the 22nd meeting in 2014 of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee and, as always, ask members to switch off mobile phones.

Agenda item 1 is consideration of two instruments that are subject to affirmative procedure. No points have been raised by our legal advi...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener We come to agenda item 2. A requirement of section 28(2) of the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 has not been complied with, but in this instance, the committee may wish to accept the reasons that the Scottish Government has provided for the breach of the 28-day rule.

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener Does the committee agree, however, to accept the reasons that the Scottish Government has provided for the breach of requirements?

Members indicated agreement.



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener Our legal advisers have raised another matter. Regulation 3(2) provides that a person in police custody must be provided

“as soon as reasonably practicable with such information ... as is necessary to satisfy the requirements of Articles 3 and 4 of the Directive.”

In its respon...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener The drafting of regulation 9(3)(b) appears to be defective. Regulation 9(2) provides for pension contribution rates that are referred to in a table that shows bands, earnings range figures and contribution rates. Regulation 9(3)(b) provides that the earnings figures that are set out in that table ar...
