Scottish Parliament: European Funding (Additional Coupled Support) (23 April 2014)

Richard Lochhead: ...because others represent us in Europe and negotiate on our behalf do we have some really tough decisions to take, given our small budgets. Indeed, we are now bottom of the funding league in Europe for pillar 1, which is direct support for agriculture, and pillar 2, which is rural development funding. There is no way whatever that, as an independent state, we would be bottom of the funding...

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (23 April 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Jackie Baillie: I welcome the opportunity to debate fuel poverty. It is well over a year since we debated the subject in the chamber and I am disappointed that it has taken the Opposition rather than the Government to set time aside. Our debate comes when fuel bills have been dropping through letterboxes across the country over the past month, and there is nothing like an electricity or gas bill to focus...

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (23 April 2014)

Ken Macintosh: Last year, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation revealed that, for the first time, more than half of the people living in poverty in Britain came from working households rather than jobless ones.

Our previous Labour-led Governments in the...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Voice in the European Union (22 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Roderick Campbell: This debate occurs against the backdrop of European elections to a Parliament that is likely to see an increase of representation of a Euro-sceptical nature across Europe. It is appropriate, therefore, to stress the Scottish Government’s desire to play its part as a constructive member of the European Union and, we hope, as an independent member state. The document,...

Scottish Parliament: Football Clubs (Fan Ownership) (22 April 2014)

Chic Brodie: I, too, welcome the debate brought to the chamber by Alison Johnstone and congratulate the former minister, Shona Robison, who is now our cabinet secretary for sport. Football belongs to its fans, or at least it should belong to its fans. The erosion of the game is manifest regrettably in reduced general participation of amateur players and fans. I used to play football at school in the...

Cystic Fibrosis (10 April 2014)
