Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Rob Gibson (Caithness, Sutherland and Ross) (SNP) I declare an interest. I am a member of the Soil Association, Slow Food Scotland and the Scottish Crofting Federation. I am happy to thank Angus MacDonald, who deserves every credit for securing this timely debate. There are many things to be said about the bee crisis.

There has been a d...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Rob Gibson (Caithness, Sutherland and Ross) (SNP) I welcome the motion and much of the debate that has taken place on the festivals that we can celebrate around the country, which enhance life in our small country in many different ways. I will concentrate on some of the aspects of festivals that go on from year to year—in particular, those in my p...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener (Rob Gibson) Good morning, everybody, and welcome to the 22nd meeting this year of the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee.

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener We might begin to find out about your concerns about the next steps as we ask more detailed questions, but you also said that you had concerns about how the process evolved. Can you give us a brief idea of what you mean?



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener Okay. People will undoubtedly dwell on the issue of the network’s coherence and so on.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener I want to broaden out the discussion, because we have to set a context. As RSPB Scotland has said, particular species of seabird have shown sustained declines since 1986, not just in the four years since Marine Scotland was created. In that context, and bearing in mind the process and the timing, ha...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener Others may want to come in on that. In its written submission, SAMS states:

“There is clear evidence of degradation of marine habitats though its severity varies from place to place providing good opportunities for conservation.”

That phrase homes in on some of the particulars ...

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener I believe that Claudia Beamish wants to open out the discussion.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The Convener Would anyone like to talk about sand eels?
