Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 11 — Conduct of chief investigating officer's investigations (21 Jun 2000)

Keith Harding: I supported Kenny Gibson's stage 2 amendment in the Local Government Committee but regret that I cannot support his amendment today. I believe that the wording is incorrect. Amendment 87 gives a time limit and suggests action thereon, but I believe that that could invalidate the investigation, or bring it to a stop. I, too, am reassured by what the minister said today. The Executive has...

Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 11 — Conduct of chief investigating officer's investigations (21 Jun 2000)

Keith Harding: I congratulate Kenny Gibson on coming up with a good wording that should overcome the opposition that was voiced in the Local Government Committee. I hope that the Executive will accept the amendment. Wherever possible, malicious allegations should be discouraged. This amendment is a good way of addressing that issue.

Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 18 — Action on finding of contravention (21 Jun 2000)

Keith Harding: I welcome the amendment. In the committee, I raised the issue of lesser sanctions for lesser wrong-doing. The amendment, along with the explanation the minister will give Donald Gorrie, will go a long way towards addressing my suggestion about removing special responsibility allowances and so on for things such as non-attendance of committees.

Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Schedule 3 — Devolved Public Bodies (21 Jun 2000)

Keith Harding: The Conservatives support, with some reluctance, the Executive amendments to exclude LECs, public companies and arm's-length council companies. We would not wish to take the bill beyond the Parliament's power to legislate. We also accept the reasoning behind removing school boards from the scope of the bill. When I lodged similar amendments at stage 2, they were supported. I lodged those...

Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 24 — Suspension and disqualification of councillors: supplementary and consequential provisions (21 Jun 2000)

Keith Harding: I have sympathy with the position of the Liberal Democrats and Dennis Canavan. Amendment 85 is lengthy and complex, but I am delighted that it has been proposed. Only two weeks ago, the minister said that he would address the issue of surcharge. Earlier in the year he said that it would be impossible to do that in the bill and that the matter would have to be addressed through a local...

Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill (21 Jun 2000)

Keith Harding: I join others in thanking the committee clerks for their work and assistance with the bill. I also thank the many organisations that gave evidence. I pay tribute to my colleagues on the Local Government Committee under the able convenership of Trish Godman. It is interesting that, until we came to stage 2 of the bill, no vote had been taken in the committee. Many good ideas and suggestions...
