Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) Is the cabinet secretary concerned about the “profound threat”, as Unison describes it, of the transatlantic trade and investment partnership to public services, including health? Will the Government join the growing number of organisations and individuals who oppose that proposed trade deal?

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) I am delighted that the Parliament can still find time this week to discuss issues other than the referendum, because yes or no, we will still all need to eat.

Securing the health of our pollinator population really is at the foundation of our agriculture. The stark stats in the Buglife b...

Meeting of the Parliament 13 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) This is one of the most important debates that we can have in the lead-up to the referendum. The creation of the post-war welfare state was a great progressive leap forward for society, and we should rightly be proud of the struggle for a system that aims to ensure that nobody is left in poverty or ...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) Greens across Europe and the world continue to call for a sustained and secure ceasefire in Gaza, for negotiations between Israel and Hamas and for a renewed commitment to on-going peace.

I welcome the Scottish Government’s support for an arms embargo and the stronger line of support for ...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) I begin my contribution to the debate by saying, “Thank you, Glasgow.” I thank all those who were involved in the games, which were a success because of those who bid, those who organised, those who volunteered—the host city volunteers and the Clyde-siders—the coaches and the hundreds of thousands w...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Alison Johnstone Indeed I am, Presiding Officer.

The great platform that the games gave us was used by UNICEF, and the fundraising campaign was innovative, appropriate and welcome. Jubilee Scotland also got involved, highlighting unfair national debts. The Seychelles have an astounding £13,000 of debt for...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 August 2014 : Thursday, August 07, 2014
Alison Johnstone I am sure that we will continue to challenge such things as we seek to deliver a meaningful legacy.

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Alison Johnstone (Lothian) (Green) I am a Lothian MSP.



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Alison Johnstone I will direct my question to Duncan Osler in the first instance. What are the links between traditional business models and social enterprise business models? These days, a lot of multinationals are falling over themselves to prove and emphasise their corporate social responsibility aspects.

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 06 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Alison Johnstone I am hearing a lot of positive input about support—financial and otherwise—for social enterprises. The Big Lottery Fund’s research suggests that 64 per cent of social enterprises think that the future is rosy and expect to increase turnover in the next three years. Is that your expectation?
