Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) I am really interested in Catriona Renfrew’s last—and, I thought, very telling—point about GPs, and I want to link it with the remark that John Walker made in his opening comments about his experience in his own area of Scotland. When Mr Walker talked about GPs, he mentioned a multidisciplinary loca...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Tavish Scott Sorry, but what is the IRF? That is jargon.



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Tavish Scott How long has the team been running? Is it 12 months?



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Tavish Scott Indeed—I can entirely understand that.

From the council’s perspective, how are GPs doing on the journey that you describe? Perhaps I can get Mr Nicoll to give us Tayside NHS Board’s perspective on that, too.



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Tavish Scott If you say the same thing, that would be helpful but, if you do not, you do not.



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Tavish Scott Do you think that enough is happening in the current system to let you do what you need to do with GPs?



Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) On that very good principle of encouraging change around the world, would the minister look forward to meeting the Dalai Lama at some stage?



Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands) (LD) I want to speak to the first part of the minister’s motion on international co-operation in areas of global concern. In an effort to understand the SNP’s policy positions, I reread the independence white paper, which the minister mentioned in his opening remarks.

In passing, I express the...

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Tavish Scott We live in a democracy, and any politician should be allowed to say what he wishes and have his arguments defeated. I rather enjoyed listening to George Galloway and Brian Wilson make arguments against independence in Bathgate the other night. The implication of the minister’s remarks is that they s...

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Tavish Scott I was here for the minister’s opening speech, in which he made a lot of remarks about independence, which is what I am addressing.

The annexation of Crimea, the massing of Russian troops on Ukraine’s border and Russia’s readiness to use military intervention mean that NATO’s role in Europ...
