Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
The Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport (Shona Robison) The year 2014 is a momentous one for Scotland and we look forward to welcoming visitors from around the world for the Commonwealth games, the Ryder cup and homecoming.

As well as providing a spectacular sporting and cultural programme, we are working with VisitScotland, transport provider...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Shona Robison The Scottish Government very much recognises that Glasgow airport is one of the key arrival points for the Commonwealth games. For that reason, we have been working closely with Glasgow Airport Ltd and the games organising committee throughout the planning phases of the games. I am happy to write to...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
The Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport (Shona Robison) I am sure that all members will be aware that the all-Scottish team GB curlers in the men’s, women’s and Paralympian teams returned with medals from the winter Olympics in Sochi. In recognition of that fantastic performance, sportscotland and Stirling Council recently announced that they will work i...

Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Shona Robison The total investment in the winter Olympic and Paralympic performance programmes by Scotland has been in the region of £3.75 million to £4 million. That is over and above the funding that is provided through sportscotland to the sports’ governing bodies. Of course, we pay in and contribute to UK Spo...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 March 2014 : Thursday, March 13, 2014
The Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport (Shona Robison) I can advise that special train services for supporters from Aberdeen and Inverness to Glasgow have been arranged between the clubs and ScotRail, with a significantly reduced fare for children travelling with adults.

On the roads, Traffic Scotland will provide a higher level of monitoring...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 March 2014 : Thursday, March 13, 2014
Shona Robison I will certainly thank ScotRail. Of course, it always keeps such issues under review.

I wish both teams—Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Aberdeen—all the best in what I am sure will be a good show for Scottish football on Sunday.



Meeting of the Parliament 13 March 2014 : Thursday, March 13, 2014
Shona Robison As I said, a lot of work and effort has been put in on the rail and road networks to ensure that both sets of fans get to the game safely. I am sure that we will see a great display of football come Sunday.



Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 12, 2014
The Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport (Shona Robison) I add my comments to those that have been made about Ailsa McKay. She is a great loss to Scotland. Our sympathies are with her family.

In the main, the speeches have been constructive and thoughtful. Johann Lamont set the tone for the debate in a refreshing speech that looked back on the ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Shona Robison There is, in fact, a majority of women in full-time student places: recent figures show that 52 per cent of full-time students aged 16 to 24 are female. An element of additional money is going into colleges, which I believe will be very helpful in increasing places for women and men. I hope that tha...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Shona Robison The consultation will provide evidence to the UK Government, which has made it clear that it is where the reserved power lies. We know, of course, that Jenny Marra accepts what the UK Government says about constitutional matters.
