Scottish Parliament: Transplantation (Authorisation of Removal of Organs etc) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (9 Feb 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I come to the debate informed by experience—not the experience of receipt of organ donation, but the experience of donating by a deceased relative. When my father-in-law, who was a nurse, died suddenly at the early age of 54, his widow and daughters decided that there could be no finer memorial to his life than that his death should mean life for others. In fact, they drew it wider than...

Scottish Parliament: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage (Rural and Island Communities) (9 Feb 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: It is an absolutely immense privilege for each and every one of us to be elected as an MSP. This touches on the issue that we are debating tonight, but in my case, the particular privilege is that when I come to the Scottish Parliament, my broadband speed leaps by a factor of 800. Over the past 10 days, the median broadband speed at home has been 0.2Mbps. On Sunday, it took 40 minutes to book...

Trade Union Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (8 Feb 2016)

Lord McAvoy: ...due to the detriment that this Bill will have on the Scottish Government’s ability to carry out its devolved responsibilities, we are legally justified in pursuing this course of action. My colleagues in the Scottish Parliament have written to Stewart Stevenson, convener of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee, to urgently request a change in the standing...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh South Suburban Railway (3 Feb 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I draw members’ attention to the fact that I am the honorary president of the Scottish Association for Public Transport and honorary vice-president of Railfuture UK. In the light of that, it will be no surprise to members that I would always wish to engage in efforts to increase the availability and use of public transport. Like other members, I congratulate Jim Eadie on giving us the...

Scottish Parliament: “Code of Conduct for Members of the Scottish Parliament” (Revisions) (2 Feb 2016)

Tricia Marwick: The next item of business is consideration of motions S4M-15512 and S4M-15513, in the name of Stewart Stevenson, on code of conduct revisions and a written statement determination. I call Stewart Stevenson to speak to and move the motions on behalf of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee.

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (2 Feb 2016)

Tricia Marwick: ..., on the Education (Scotland) Bill, be agreed to. Motion agreed to, That the Parliament agrees that the Education (Scotland) Bill be passed. The next question is, that motion S4M-15512, in the name of Stewart Stevenson, on code of conduct revisions, be agreed to. Motion agreed to, That the Parliament agrees to amend the Code of Conduct for Members of the Scottish Parliament by making the...

Scottish Parliament: Succession (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (28 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: There appear to be three ways of dealing with wills: first, there is an executor or executrix nominate, who is decided by the person making the will. Secondly, there is an executor or executrix dative in cases in which an executor has to be appointed. Thirdly—this applies in the overwhelming number of cases where there is no confirmation whatever—there is an informal winding up of...

Scottish Parliament: Succession (Scotland) Bill (28 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I am glad that extending the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee’s remit has created additional parliamentary capacity for dealing with bills that come from the Scottish Law Commission. By their nature, SLC bills address matters on which the SLC has established that there is broad agreement on remedies for errors or omissions or updating existing legislation. Our taking of...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Bill (26 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I wish to raise a point of order that concerns chapter 12 of standing orders, in so far as it relates to the operation of committees. In doing so, in no sense do I make any comment on the selection of amendment S4M-15414.1, and nor do I speak on behalf of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee, which has not yet considered the...

Scottish Parliament: Public Petitions Process Review (19 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate the minister on his brevity, which allows much more time for the backbenchers to express their views on a committee that is, in essence, a creature of the backbenchers. It is not attached to a particular minister; it represents the people whom we represent in a way and to an extent that no other committee does. I have been a member of the Scottish Parliament since 2001 and,...

Scottish Parliament: Education (12 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: We will continue to be challenged as individuals and as an educational system by the youngsters of today. Most youngsters do not carry a pen or a pencil. That is very different from my time as a youngster. However, most have an intelligent phone and are perhaps more adept at operating the on-screen keyboard on that than they are at using a pen or a pencil. The modern world is very different...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Elections (Dates) Bill: Stage 1 (7 Jan 2016)

The Deputy Presiding Officer: I call Stewart Stevenson to speak on behalf of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee. You have six minutes or thereby, Mr Stevenson.

Scottish Parliament: Lobbying (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (7 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: The term “lobbying” can, for some people at least, conjure up images of dubious characters loitering in the corridors of power, attempting to gain unfair advantage over the ordinary citizen. Indeed, the origins of the term lie in the Willard hotel in Washington, where Ulysses S Grant, President of the United States, used to retire for his brandy and cigars in the evening and would...

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy Convergence Uplift Negotiations (6 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what progress it has made in the common agricultural policy convergence uplift negotiations with the United Kingdom Government. (S4O-05218)

Scottish Parliament: Age and Social Isolation (6 Jan 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I hope that the member recognises that to be alone is not necessarily to be lonely. For a small minority of people, being alone is a choice that they prefer to make.

Scottish Parliament: Interests of Members of the Scottish Parliament (Amendment) Bill (17 Dec 2015)

John Scott: The next item of business is a debate on S4M-15201, in the name of Stewart Stevenson, on the Interests of Members of the Scottish Parliament (Amendment) Bill. I invite members who wish to speak in the debate to press their request-to-speak buttons now or as soon as possible. I call Stewart Stevenson to speak to and move the motion on behalf of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments...

Scottish Parliament: Youth Employment (16 Dec 2015)

Stewart Stevenson: 8. To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on how youth employment in Scotland compares with the rest of the European Union. (S4O-05181)

Scottish Parliament: Redesigning Primary Care (15 Dec 2015)

Stewart Stevenson: I am almost certainly the third speaker in the debate whose naissance predates the founding of the health service. When we are talking about redesigning primary care, it is as well to think about the process of change that there has been. Family tree research is one of my interests so I regularly see death certificates from the 1880s and 1890s and, under cause of death, they simply say...

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy (Payments) (10 Dec 2015)

Stewart Stevenson: I draw members’ attention to the fact that I have a very small registered agricultural holding, but I receive no public funding for it. The basic and greening payments process has been at the heart of what the cabinet secretary has said today, but farmers also wish to be assured that coupled support for beef and sheep and, indeed, the 60 million for less favoured areas are also on...
