Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) The minister criticises the OBR, but is not it the case that the OBR has always overstated rather than understated the oil revenues from the North Sea? Norway has increased tax in order to set money aside in the oil fund. Which taxes will the minister increase? Which services will he cut?


Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) I thank the cabinet secretary for the advance copy of his statement.

Earlier this year, the Deputy First Minister said:

“We would have preferred to see a private company buy Prestwick Airport but the strategic and economic importance of Prestwick Airport is such that we weren’t...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) I thank the minister for the advance copy of his statement.

The NHS has received more money, not less, under every single UK Government for decades. The share of UK national income spent on the NHS has doubled in the past 50 years. It is the minister’s independence plans that will cut £6...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) I am grateful to the committee, the advisers, the clerks and the Government officials for their detailed work over a long time.

It is striking that this afternoon’s debate contrasts remarkably with the debates on the bill that we had a few months ago. It also contrasts with debates earlie...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD)

3. To ask the First Minister what issues will be discussed at the next meeting of the Cabinet. (S4F-02245)



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Willie Rennie Bank of England governors tend to be cautious. [Interruption.]



Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Willie Rennie Bank of England governors tend to be cautious, so Mr Carney being open about crisis plans for a run on the banks is serious. The First Minister has, as usual, spent the past 20 minutes ducking and diving, so let us see whether he can give a straight answer to this: can he confirm that those crisis p...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Willie Rennie Only the First Minister could claim that a warning of a run on the banks was a triumph for his cause. Claiming credit for a crisis that he caused makes him look like the old pretender.

The governor of the Bank of England is a cautious and learned man, whom the First Minister has just prai...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) I am pleased that the finance secretary recognises the progress that the whole of the United Kingdom economy is making, but I want to take him back to his interview with Gary Robertson on the BBC last week. Has he had time since then to reflect on whether, rather than ruling all the options in and r...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Willie Rennie When Jamie Hepburn is knocking on doors in his constituency, do constituents ask him what his plan B on the currency is and is he able to answer the question?
