Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie (Glasgow) (Green)

5. To ask the Scottish Government when it will produce the final version of its guidance on relationships, sexual health and parenthood education and whether the right to be properly informed with the knowledge to make safe, healthy and positive choices will be an integral part of the do...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie It is now pretty much globally accepted that the evidence shows that good-quality education about sex, sexuality, sexual health and emotional wellbeing is crucial to encouraging positive, healthy choices among young people as well as protecting them from coercion, sexual abuse and exploitation. Does...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie (Glasgow) (Green) I once again record my support for the abolition of the right to buy and state that I oppose Alex Johnstone’s attempt to remove section 1.

Alex Johnstone makes the case that abolition of the right to buy will not, like a magic bullet, transform things overnight. Of course it will not; I d...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie I wonder whether, before the member finishes her contribution, she would talk about the concerns raised by the Glasgow and West of Scotland Forum of Housing Associations about her amendment 42, which, it suggests, implies that there exists a legal prohibition on taking certain issues into account. T...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie During the discussion on the bill, I have consistently welcomed the Government’s intention to produce a code of practice for letting agents. At stage 2, I lodged amendments that explored further details that might be included in the code of practice, and we will have the chance to debate those sugge...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie I am sorry that the minister does not see the opportunity to commit now to producing a letting code. She talked about the need to review the effectiveness of landlord registration. However, by the time that the amendment—if it were passed—kicked in and required action from Government, the landlord r...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie Alex Johnstone attempts to portray a picture of a well-functioning market. We can no longer afford to regard the private rented sector as involving just a free market exchange between equals. As James Kelly said, the sector has doubled in size in 10 years. Some in the sector want it to double again ...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie At stage 2, I lodged a number of amendments seeking to explore the detail of what would be included in the code of practice that the Government intends to produce for letting agents, and I am again seeking to explore specific issues that the code of practice could—and, I believe, should—address.
Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie My excitement knows no bounds at hearing that an Opposition member will have an amendment agreed to for the second time today—although perhaps I have slightly undercounted. I thank the minister for the commitment to amendment 37, which will set a clear timescale for the development of a code of prac...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Patrick Harvie Amendments 23 and 24 make one relatively simple change to section 43.

Section 43 introduces the procedures for the application to first-tier tribunal in relation to the enforcement of the letting agent code of practice. All members have acknowledged that there is a great deal of strength...
