Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Richard Lyle on securing time for the debate. The debate focuses on the 125th anniversary of the Scottish Showmen’s Guild, which is an impressive achievement. I am sure that I speak for many people who have enjoyed the entertainment that the guild provides in streets and in country locations across Scotland. My parents used to let me go—I must have been a...

Scottish Parliament: “EU Legislative Proposals: Review of Standing Orders” (12 June 2014)

Stewart Stevenson: In 2010, the Parliament agreed a new European strategy for its committees. That followed major changes that had been introduced by the treaty of Lisbon, which gave the Scottish Parliament, through the UK Government, a role in raising subsidiarity concerns. The strategy was supported by standing order changes. At the time, the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee thought...

Motion agreed to, That the Parliament notes the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee’s 4th...

Scottish Parliament: Greenhouse Gas Inventory 2012 (10 June 2014)

Claire Baker: ...a rise in emissions. The Government defends the lack of progress by focusing on the shifting baseline, but such adjustment was not unexpected. In relation to the 2010 figures, the then minister, Stewart Stevenson, said that the early experience highlighted the need not just to plan to meet the targets but to build in contingency. If that had been done we might not be in the position that...

Scottish Parliament: Aberdeen’s Engagement Strategy with Japan (5 June 2014)

Mark McDonald: ...look at the cultural opportunities and links that exist. In September 2011, the Scottish samurai festival was held at the Bridge of Don, which is where Thomas Blake Glover lived before he moved to Nagasaki. If my colleague Stewart Stevenson had been here, he would have been reminding us all that Glover was, in fact, born in Fraserburgh in his constituency; however, as Mr Stevenson is not...

Scottish Parliament: Local Television (29 May 2014)

Stewart Stevenson: I join others in congratulating Joan McAlpine on securing this important debate. I apologise for perhaps not hearing the whole debate, should I have to leave early for the Conveners Group meeting that starts shortly, although I will certainly look at it afterwards. The Scottish Parliament information centre tells me that broadcast media—TV and radio—employ something like 3,500...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Climate Change Adaptation Programme (29 May 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: I draw members’ attention to my entry in the register of members’ interests in relation to my membership of the Institute of Advanced Motorists. On objective B3-12, on “Improving driver skills”, is the minister aware that driving 10mph slower delivers 10 per cent cash savings and 10 per cent emissions savings for only a 2 to 3 per cent average speed reduction on...

Scottish Parliament: Regeneration (27 May 2014) See 12 other results from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: It is very easy to agree with everything that the member is saying. Does he agree that it is important that we are ambitious enough about seeing some of the initiatives that do not work and learning things not to do? Although we want everything to succeed does the member agree that we want ambition to be displayed and that we should send a strong signal that when failure occurs, the lessons...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Wildlife Trust (50th Anniversary) (27 May 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: As other members have done, I thank John Wilson for providing us with the opportunity to have this debate, which is—of course—about thanking the Scottish Wildlife Trust for the work that it has done over the past 50 years. I am sure that the current Minister for Environment and Climate Change will value—as I did, as a minister—the sage words that come from many of the...

Scottish Parliament: Animal Rights and Human Responsibilities (15 May 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Christine Grahame on securing the debate and on arranging the spectacularly interesting and engaging display that we have in two locations in Holyrood. I am slightly worried that my two cats, Malcolm and Donald, will hold me to account for submitting their photograph without their permission, but I guess that I will just need to live with that. As he did on many subjects,...

Scottish Parliament: Homecoming Scotland 2014 (15 May 2014) See 10 other results from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: Christine Grahame is, of course, correct to talk about the importance of domestic tourism. Will she note that VisitEngland reports a 21 per cent drop in domestic tourism in England, with a continuous decline there? Whatever patterns may prevail in domestic tourism, Scotland is doing neither better nor worse than anywhere else.

Scottish Parliament: Asbestos-related Conditions (Healthcare Costs Recovery) (13 May 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: The subject that we debate tonight is one that I and others have spoken on over the past decade. Hanzala Malik mentioned a couple of our predecessors: Des McNulty and Bill Butler. It is worth saying that on the Tory benches Bill Aitken was assiduous in pursuit of this issue and, on my own benches, the late Margaret Ewing pursued the interests of her constituents, who were mainly in the...

Scottish Parliament: Skin Cancer (8 May 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Fiona on bringing this important and interesting debate to the Parliament. It is worth looking at the science that underpins some of this. The ultraviolet rays that we have been talking about have a wavelength in the range of 100 to 400 nanometres, so quite a narrow range of light causes the problem, albeit that ultraviolet light is important and omnipresent. It is particularly...

Scottish Parliament: Life Sciences (8 May 2014)

Dr Alasdair Allan: ...not only our contribution to global research in that area, but what we can do to exceed it in the future. There were many considered and thoughtful speeches in the debate. Alas, there was no speech from Stewart Stevenson. I had been looking forward to one following his Van de Graaff generator speech, which has entered into parliamentary folklore since the last science debate. Mr Bibby made...
