Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) I start by joining with James Dornan and colleagues across the chamber in the collective love-in for all those who made Glasgow 2014 work. It was, without question, a great achievement and, in judging the legacy, I suspect that much good will come of them in sporting and economic terms.

A...

Meeting of the Parliament 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) I broadly agree with the cabinet secretary’s analysis of the scheme. Has she made any decision yet on continued funding for the scheme, given that it is due to run out in December? The organisers in Shetland tell me that it would help in their planning if the Government made an announcement about th...

Meeting of the Parliament 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) I think that my area qualifies for that.

Does the cabinet secretary accept the argument that addressing transport costs is a major part of the Commonwealth games legacy? Will she agree to meet a delegation of parents, coaches and volunteers from Shetland after Parliament returns in the au...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) To continue that line of questioning, in your recommendations there is no specific suggestion about the kind of training that you have just described, which I took to be a recommendation, or an inference, that such training needs to be done on a national scale, even in the sense of guidance being gi...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott We do not have a job description for MSPs—some people may be tempted to say that we should. Do you not think that there would be resistance in local government circles to, for example, those of us who are sitting in this room lecturing local government—especially those of us who are former councillo...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott Yes. Exactly.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott Thank you for that. At paragraph 112, the report says that

“Community planning is at a crossroads.”

I took that to be quite a significant statement. Is the commission concerned about where community planning is going? I think that we all have some deep concerns that community p...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott In that assessment, did you look at the merging of care and social care—



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott Yes.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott Paragraph 112 of the report is right to say that community planning will happen only if

“sustained leadership ... is significantly stronger than we have seen to date.”

Does that jar slightly with the fair findings about the political short-termism in much that is going on? That...
