Meeting of the Parliament 25 September 2014 : Thursday, September 25, 2014
Willie Rennie

Yesterday, I heard John Swinney set out his support for home rule and federalism. He joins illustrious company: Gladstone, Grimond, Gordon Brown and now—of all pe...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 September 2014 : Thursday, September 25, 2014
Willie Rennie

I thank the First Minister for that promise of constructive engagement, but he should remember that the plans that were put to the voters last week were set out b...

Meeting of the Parliament 23 September 2014 : Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Willie Rennie (Mid Scotland and Fife) (LD)

Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Willie Rennie Members of our party are free to vote as they wish. We are not the strict party that the SNP seeks to be, driving out division and difference.

I respect John Barrett for who he is—[Interruption.]



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Willie Rennie I wonder whether the First Minister agrees with John Barrett’s criticism of him, because I suspect that he does not. There is not necessarily unity on that.

Let us take energy. To achieve our ambitions for Scottish renewable energy, it makes sense to share the UK consumer base during deve...
