Scottish Parliament: Affordable Housing (22 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: As Karen Whitefield said, there cannot be a person in the chamber today who does not think that everyone in Scotland should have access to good-quality, warm, affordable housing. Along with good education, health and other core services, good housing has to be a basic tenet of any political party's beliefs. There is wide recognition that the Labour-led coalition has begun to make a difference...

Scottish Parliament: Affordable Housing (22 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: The list of issues goes on and on. At this point, I must thank Murray Tosh, who was largely responsible for putting together the cross-party group's report. As the minister is aware, the affordable housing working group is carrying out some good work with all the main agencies, and I hope that it will soon come forward with changes to the guidance on Scottish planning policy 3. Indeed, the...

Scottish Parliament: Coeliac Disease (14 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: First, I thank Margo MacDonald for lodging her very important motion, thereby enabling members to debate it in the chamber tonight. Many of us received a letter from Gordon Banks, the MP for Ochil and South Perthshire, who is a colleague of mine and who has been pioneering awareness of the issue at Westminster. I hope that members do not mind if I read from his letter—he knows that I will...

Scottish Parliament: Making the National Health Service Local (14 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: As the minister outlined, the Executive's health policy, which it set out in "Delivering for Health", and the main recommendations of Professor David Kerr's well-received report, are moving in the same direction—we must continue to improve and deliver health services at the local level. I want to show how primary health care provision in my constituency has improved, although of course we...

Scottish Parliament: Transport and Works (Scotland) Bill (8 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: I agree totally with what the minister said about the importance of transport.

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2007 (7 Feb 2007)

It appears from a recent press release that the Conservatives are now supporting local government, although we did...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2007 (7 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: As far as I know, there have been no staff cuts in Stirling Council. I will talk about what has been happening in Stirling, so I will elaborate on the member's question. I am pleased that extra moneys have been found. I looked back at the speech that I gave in the debate on the Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2006, which took place almost exactly a year ago. In that debate, Michael...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2007 (7 Feb 2007)

Sylvia Jackson: The member may laugh, but we keep asking the SNP about its costings and finding that its policies are still uncosted. The SNP cannot present an alternative Government on an uncosted basis. Even if we take all the oil revenues into account, we would still have a £6 billion shortfall. The SNP must address that. Further, the SNP talks about a local income tax rather than a property tax. I...
