Scottish Parliament: Agriculture (Agenda 2000) (7 Oct 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: As the representative for the Stirling constituency—an area that one might not imagine is classified as 93 per cent rural—I understand fully the difficulties facing Scottish farmers. Like Mike Rumbles, I have been to my local mart and have paid several visits to local farmers. I welcome Ross Finnie's motion and the Executive's efforts to ensure a sustainable future for farming in...

Scottish Parliament: Telecommunications (27 Oct 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: I thank Nick Johnston. This is a heated issue for most members, who will have been approached by constituents who have seen a mast being erected close to them—an obvious concern.

As we know only too well, the mobile phone...

Scottish Parliament: European Structural Funds (28 Oct 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: I will speak about Stirling, but will try to draw general points, which I have made in the European Committee, from the specific case.

It said that Stirling Council was still reeling from the blow of losing much of its assistance and reiterated...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture and Rural Affairs (4 Nov 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: I do not think that there is any doubt that there are real issues concerning rural communities. The problems are worsened by remoteness, often from essential services. The Government recognises those problems, and is taking active measures to tackle them. Many of the issues raised in the SNP motion are central to the needs of all Scotland. I took on board Ross Finnie's point that it is...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture and Rural Affairs (4 Nov 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: No. I am sorry, but I have only a short time. The association of community councils is represented as a fifth reporting group and is taking an active part in the discussions. The process should be welcomed, as it is trying to involve local communities in local decisions and is attempting to be transparent and inclusive. The resulting park plan must take account of the existing structure and...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture and Rural Affairs (4 Nov 1999)

On 21 September, he announced an additional £91 million, which was broken down into £42 million and £49 million. Today, he highlighted an extra £14 million. I am sure that in winding up, Peter Peacock will assure Mr Monteith that that is extra money, as he disputed whether it was recycled money or new money....
