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...

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

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
