Scottish Parliament: Planning etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 23A — Fixed penalty notices (16 Nov 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: I speak as convener of the Subordinate Legislation Committee, which initiated amendment 161. Section 23A of the bill introduces proposed new sections 136A and 145A into the principal act. I will not go into too much detail, but proposed new sections 136A and 145A enable the Scottish ministers to prescribe in regulations the amounts of fixed penalties. Those regulations will be subject to the...

Scottish Parliament: Housing Stock Transfer (9 Nov 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: Although we accept that the views of tenants on Stirling's recent stock transfer vote must be respected and it is difficult to see how investment of the kind envisaged following a yes vote would be possible, will the minister promise nevertheless to continue dialogue with me and Stirling Council as it develops a new business plan on housing?

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Reparation Actions (8 Jun 2006)

Scottish Parliament: Regulatory Framework (8 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: I just want to point out that for instruments that have little or nothing wrong with them, the period would be much shorter than 40 days.

Scottish Parliament: Regulatory Framework (8 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: As convener of the Subordinate Legislation Committee, it is with great pleasure that I open the debate on the committee's draft report, which follows its inquiry into the regulatory framework in Scotland. The committee does not often have the opportunity to blow its own trumpet. Indeed, this is the first time in the life of the Parliament that there has been a debate in the committee's name....

Scottish Parliament: Regulatory Framework (8 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: Yes, and Greek. The committee's work is becoming more important as more legislation is delegated to secondary legislation. For example, in 2005-06 there were 19 bills, but the committee considered nearly 500 Scottish statutory instruments, which is an increase of around 40 on the previous year, 86 on 2003-04 and around 180 on 2002-03. That rate of increase shows no sign of slowing. We...

Scottish Parliament: Finance and Public Services and Communities: Holistic Community Regeneration (1 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: To ask the Scottish Executive how the holistic approach to community regeneration developed in Raploch, with the establishment of an urban regeneration company, will be rolled out to other areas of the Stirling constituency, such as Cultenhove and Cornton, and to other parts of Scotland. (S2O-10035)

Scottish Parliament: Finance and Public Services and Communities: Holistic Community Regeneration (1 Jun 2006)

Scottish Parliament: Education (1 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: How do Lord Sutherland's ideas on centralised control and the devolving of more responsibility to schools get over that problem?

Scottish Parliament: Education (1 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: The opening of the Tory motion states that "creating a greater degree of school autonomy, devolving more powers to head teachers and giving greater say to parents and teachers in shaping the education system will raise standards". For a number of reasons, that is misleading. The motion suggests that schools currently have little say in how they operate and that there is too much power at the...

Scottish Parliament: Education (1 Jun 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: I do not think that many people are averse to setting. There is a big difference between setting and streaming, but the Conservatives have never got to grips with that. On the role of parents, how would parental input be channelled so that, in the words of the Tory motion, they would have more say in "shaping the education system"? Without a doubt, parents have a crucial role to play in the...

Scottish Parliament: Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 18 — Mutilation (31 May 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: I am pleased to speak in this debate. I am the convener of the cross-party group in the Scottish Parliament on animal welfare, which has had extensive debates on the issue. Having considered all the arguments, I find it difficult to move away from the view of the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. That view is based on the experience and professional expertise of the...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Out-of-hours Health Services (Highland Perthshire) (11 May 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: As the minister knows, I have similar problems in the rural part of my constituency around Killin, which adjoins John Swinney's area. The particular problem is how the accident and emergency ambulance service, which has been working for some time, is dealing—or not dealing—with some emergencies. Will the minister please consider improvements or alternatives to the present system, so that...

Scottish Parliament: Council Tax and Pensioner Poverty (11 May 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: John Swinney's opening speech dealt with local income tax as an alternative to the council tax, rather than considering other aspects of pensioner poverty and how they have been tackled by the measures that the Labour Party is delivering in the coalition, but I suppose that that was to be expected. I begin by considering the matter that John Swinney concentrated on most—the replacement of...
