Meeting of the Parliament 05 March 2015 Business until 16:03 : Thursday, March 05, 2015
Rob Gibson (Caithness, Sutherland and Ross) (SNP)

I ask the First Minister what can be done to protect the livelihoods of sustainable fishers in the Inner Sound off Applecross, in my constituency and Dave Thompson’s constituency, when those local fishers, who have harvested the area regularly, are to be excluded by the Ministry of Defence plan unilaterally to double the size of the British underwater test and evaluation centre—BUTEC—torpedo testing range there.

I understand that only 24 per cent of the land holdings in Ross and Cromarty was mapped in the register last year. Progress is painfully slow. What resources can be made available to speed up that process to achieve the targets that the minister has mentioned? In particular, could he comment on whether there should be higher registration fees for large estates or some means to employ more people in Registers of Scotland?

8. Rob Gibson (Caithness, Sutherland and Ross) (SNP)

To ask the Scottish Government how much private and public land in Scotland was registered on the national map-based register of land ownership by December 2014 and how much it envisages being registered in the next five years. (S4O-04089)



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 04 March 2015 : Wednesday, March 04, 2015
The Convener

That ends stage 2 for today, although I think that some members want the chance to go on, now that their dander is up. However, I am restraining them, because we have to have another session next week. All amendments for consideration by the committee should be lodged with the clerks to the legislation team by 12 noon this Friday.

I thank the minister and her officials. That was a bit of a marathon, but we have succeeded in getting this far.

At our next meeting, the committee will continue stage 2 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill and will consider petition PE1547, on conserving Scottish wild salmon. So it is groundhog day next week, then.

Meeting closed at 12:13.

Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 04 March 2015 : Wednesday, March 04, 2015

We would appreciate it if you got in touch with us about that.



Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee 04 March 2015 : Wednesday, March 04, 2015
The Convener

I have two questions. Is there enough capacity in the Land Court? Will the processes of the Land Court in such cases be simplified in any way in order to avoid delays in replying?
