Scottish Parliament: Post Office (Horizon System) Offences (Scotland) Bill: Stage 2 (23 May 2024)

Keith Brown: I realise where responsibility for the compensation scheme lies, but is the cabinet secretary able to say that we will not see a repeat of the current scheme for shortfall, whereby individual postmasters who made up the supposed losses have to fill in a questionnaire of 45 questions, some of which are in five parts and many of which ask for information that only the Post Office could hold? I...

Scottish Parliament: Horizon Information Technology Prosecutions (16 May 2024)

Keith Brown: The Lord Advocate stated that the Post Office and the UK Government, in her words, “continued to support the Horizon system during the 2013 to 2015 period, and beyond” and that there were “worrying levels of deliberate and sustained concealment and deception ... during this period.” Can the Lord Advocate say whether that might present a...

Scottish Parliament: Portfolio Question Time: Tackling Poverty and Inequalities in Clackmannanshire (Support) ( 8 May 2024)

Keith Brown: I am aware that there will be a ministerial visit to Clackmannanshire shortly to learn more about some of the innovative work that is taking place between the local authority, the third sector and communities in the family wellbeing partnership, which is delivering significant positive outcomes. What more can the Scottish Government do to support such early intervention and prevention...

Scottish Parliament: Business Motion (30 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Business Motion (30 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: I think that Mr Ross and I are agreed that we want to see this happen as quickly as possible. Given that the activity involved was undertaken by the Post Office, which is a reserved function, and overseen by the United Kingdom Government, does the member not think that the quickest approach would be for the UK Government to incorporate the process at the UK level, where the issue started? Has...

Keith Brown: To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to support bat conservation. (S6O-03348)

Scottish Parliament: General Question Time: Bat Conservation (25 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: I have recently been contacted by a number of constituents employed by NatureScot as part of a group of 27 bat workers, all of whom I understand are to face redundancy. What consideration has been given to the impact that the redundancy of NatureScot’s 27 bat workers, with their considerable experience and expertise, might have on bat conservation in Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Victims, Witnesses, and Justice Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (23 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: Sometimes, when we have debates like this, we should remind ourselves why we are debating such changes in the first place. We had a powerful reminder of that from Karen Adam a short time ago. It is also worth mentioning again—particularly for the victims of sexual offences—that the latest figures show that only 24 per cent of those who are accused of rape in single-complainer...

Scottish Parliament: Victims, Witnesses, and Justice Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (23 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: No. I apologise, but I am in my last minute. I cannot remember disagreeing with my good friend and colleague John Swinney before the discussion about jury sizes. However, the point that he made about corroboration is important. If that change is not to take place until 2028, perhaps it is time to take another big chunk. Corroboration on judgments is a huge issue that affects lots...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: UK Migration Rules (Seasonal Workforce) (18 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: Every day, we hear about the harm that Brexit is causing the Scottish economy, and indeed the UK economy, with the cost now estimated at £140 billion. I say that, but there is a conspiracy of silence among the unionist parties, which will not raise a word of concern or criticism about the effect that Brexit is having. Today, I, along with other members of the Parliament’s...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: UK Migration Rules (Seasonal Workforce) (18 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: —and without freedom of movement. Does the First Minister agree that Scotland needs not a change of Government at Westminster, but the change that only independence can bring?

Scottish Parliament: Scotch Whisky Industry (17 Apr 2024)

Keith Brown: On the point about responsible drinking, would the member acknowledge the efforts that Diageo has made in that regard? In addition, as we are talking about facts and figures, would he acknowledge that whisky is produced not only in rural and island communities? There is more whisky production in my constituency than anywhere else in the world, and we had the first ever industrial-scale...
