Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) I thank the finance secretary for the advance copy of his statement. In this very seat, at lunch time, Alison McInnes asked for more NHS investment in Grampian. I am sure that there must be a connection with the announcement this afternoon.

I welcome the investment in Aberdeen and in the ...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) I join members in paying tribute to those who have served their country, many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice in order to bring peace to the United Kingdom. The fact that the peace here has been so enduring is the ultimate tribute to their sacrifice. The peace that we enjoy on these shores,...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Willie Rennie The minister can count on my support for that. I did not joint the armed forces parliamentary scheme; I was distracted by other matters. I was part of the Liberal defence team and a member of the House of Commons Defence Committee. Perhaps I will get a second chance to take part in the scheme this t...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 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-02186)



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Willie Rennie This goes from bad to worse, I have to say. The First Minister has been able to estimate the cost of his policies—those that he likes—down to the last three decimal places but, on the set-up costs, he cannot even give us a quarter of a billion either way. Is he actually confirming today that there i...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Willie Rennie —about that report being commissioned?



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Willie Rennie That is exactly why the people of Scotland are worried that the Scottish Government is refusing to look at the downsides of independence. That is why they are concerned. [Applause.]

Members: Oh!



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Willie Rennie The First Minister still does not have a clue about set-up costs. On the radio, John Swinney had 13 attempts and still could not answer the question. Just last week, two Cabinet ministers said that it was impossible. Those on the Government benches have tried to tell us that never has a country been...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD) On a point of order, Presiding Officer.



Meeting of the Parliament 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Willie Rennie Thank you, Presiding Officer. At First Minister’s questions today, the First Minister was asked about the Daily Telegraph news story that said that he had been presented with a report by civil servants on the cost to set up an independent country. I asked the First Minister to confirm whether there ...
