Scottish Parliament: Introduction (2 Dec 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: I am pleased that the issue of older people has been raised in the Scottish Parliament today. We all recognise the importance of older people in our society and the value of their experience and knowledge.

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (15 Dec 1999)

Sylvia Jackson: I want to concentrate on an issue that has been raised by my constituents. It relates to concerns that have been expressed by home owners in sheltered retirement housing developments. In making my points, I realise that I may stray a little outside the debate on feudal tenure. I ask members to bear with me in this rather complex area. I want to highlight owners' lack of powers to approve or...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (13 Jan 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: In this morning's debate on housing, a consensus was developing around the aims of the Government's housing programme. Although other issues have been raised which will need further discussion, I want first to address those aims. The first aim is to increase and improve existing housing stock. The 18,000 houses that will be built over three years—7,000 of which will be built this...

Scottish Parliament: Further and Higher Education (27 Jan 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: In a previous debate on tuition fees, I supported the need for an independent review to examine not just tuition fees, but student finance in general, including student hardship. Listening to SNP members this morning, it seems to me that they cannot get out of the groove of tuition fees to look at the wider issues. That is one of their big problems. I remind all members that the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Further and Higher Education (27 Jan 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: I disagree totally with Brian Adam. It is money that is going to be put back into the system to help students from poorer backgrounds.

Scottish Parliament: Further and Higher Education (27 Jan 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: Let us stick to student funding this morning, please; time is running out.

It "welcomes . . . the assurances given in the Scottish Executive's 'Framework Documents' that: No Scottish student will be worse off than under the present...

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Development (3 Feb 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: If sustainable development began to rank as a key issue in the late 1990s, it is clear that, as we go into the new millennium, global survival depends on each one of us taking sustainability seriously. Friends of the Earth sees sustainable development in terms of a fairer share of resources, both at home and abroad. It is clear that business as usual will not achieve sustainable development....
