Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Rob Gibson I thank the cabinet secretary for that detailed answer. The grid system is important to us in the north, as it is everywhere.

After a widespread power outage, what steps does SSE take to ensure that customers such as mobile phone service providers can reboot quickly? As the cabinet secret...

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Rob Gibson I thank the cabinet secretary for that explanation, which is the first that we have had in any detail. I look forward to reading the document that will be placed in SPICe.

Meeting of the Parliament 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Rob Gibson (Caithness, Sutherland and Ross) (SNP)

1. To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on the cause of the electricity power cut which affected people in the north of Scotland on 17 April 2014. (S4T-00667)



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Members indicated agreement.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
The Convener On the final bullet point, I think that mirroring the European Union reporter approach is a good idea. Claudia Beamish does the job for us outside of this process. We will look to each committee to have someone more than just the officials to be a contact and to raise issues in a fashion that gets g...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
The Convener Are we agreed about that? It strengthens the meaning.

Members indicated agreement.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
The Convener Let us leave it out and see what happens.

Is there anything to say about bullet points 3 and 4?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
The Convener That is in the middle line of bullet point 2. It will say that officials and MSPs will “examine” climate change spending issues.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
The Convener We will move on to page 4 if we are finished with page 3. There are two instances of the word “in” in the first bullet point.
