Scottish Parliament: Exam Results (6 Sep 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: I thank the minister and welcome what he said on the assurances about the appeals system and on the checks and spot checks that are to be in place. However, I am very concerned about the real issue: getting confidence back in the SQA. The only way we will do that is by getting the examination scripts back to the schools. This time, there is obviously difficulty in doing that. I hope that the...

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (28 Sep 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: Several comments that I wanted to make have been made, so I shall try to make different points. It is obvious that tourism is important. The tourism industry generates £2.5 billion per annum and employs 177,000 people, which I gather represents 8 per cent of employment in Scotland. Wider issues such as the exchange rate and the price of petrol have been mentioned. Unlike Duncan Hamilton, I...

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (28 Sep 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: To be fair, the general impression is that the amount of money that has been invested so far is small compared with the benefits of the system. David Davidson questioned whether the system should be incorporated into a UK-based system, but there might be disadvantages in that. The importance of keeping it in the Scottish context is that we keep the branding and the niche marketing. David...

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (28 Sep 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: On a rather negative note, the rural hoteliers in my constituency are experiencing difficulties along the lines of those that were mentioned by the Conservatives.

Sylvia Jackson: I welcome to the gallery representatives of the body piercing industry and local authority officers, who have supported this motion to introduce more regulation to the industry.

Thanks go also to the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Carbeth Hutters (4 Oct 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: I welcome Gordon Jackson's balanced account of the Carbeth issue. I am interested and involved in the matter as the Carbeth estate is in the Stirling constituency. Angus MacKay talked about the discussions with Stirling Council. As he said, those discussions on conservation area status are on-going. Since the establishment of the Scottish Parliament, I have received representations from Mr...

Scottish Parliament: Carbeth Hutters (4 Oct 2000)

Sylvia Jackson: I will carry on, as I do not think that I will be able to finish my speech if I give way. For example, although information from the owners was collected through semi-structured interviews, data from the hutters were gathered via a fairly brief questionnaire, which was mainly confined to pre-coded questions. As the Scottish Executive concluded in its response to the Justice and Home Affairs...
