Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Sarah Boyack My concern is partly because I know that there may be further legislation coming down the tracks from the Scottish Government. The key problem for our constituents is that having to refer to different acts becomes a legal minefield. It would be useful if we could do simple things, without widening t...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Sarah Boyack Will the member take an intervention?



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) We, too, welcome the proposals for the bill. I congratulate David Stewart on the work that he has done thus far, and echo his thanks to all those who contributed to the discussions and gave evidence to the committee, and to the clerks for taking us this far.

Many properties are not proper...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Sarah Boyack Scotland gets the best of both worlds. We need to make the most of those worlds. Last month, the Britain and Africa after 50 event in the Scottish Parliament focused on what we needed to do more of in trade—



Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) We meet on the day after the publication of the IPCC’s report on climate change, which says that we all need to act. The statement that the latest report should “jolt people into action” is something that we must think about very seriously. Widespread food shortages, water scarcity and climate refug...

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) I completely agree with the comments that Jim Eadie makes about Mercy Corps, but does he not also acknowledge the huge amount of money that the organisation has been allocated by the UK Government for, for example, good governance work in Pakistan?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 19 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 19 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Sarah Boyack (Lothian) (Lab) Amendments 7 and 15 are intended to put food fairly and squarely on the procurement agenda.
