Scottish Parliament: Kintyre Economy (25 Nov 1999)

George Lyon: As all the members exit, I must say how nice it is to play to a packed house. I welcome the opportunity to bring the problems facing the Kintyre peninsula to the attention of this Parliament, if not all the parliamentarians. Many problems face a peninsula such as Kintyre. It is far from markets—Campbeltown is 150 miles from the central belt. It suffers from the problems of high transport...

Scottish Parliament: Kintyre Economy (25 Nov 1999)

George Lyon: As Fergus will know, the Liberal party has argued consistently that rural areas should be compensated for the constant increases in the fuel price escalator, which was designed to deal with congestion in major towns and cities. We support the principle of that money being returned to rural areas. I will mention some of the area's economic indicators. Unemployment statistics for 1998 put...

Scottish Parliament: Kintyre Economy (25 Nov 1999)

George Lyon: Given that the fundamental problem facing agriculture is the strength of sterling, will Mr McGrigor support all the other political parties, which are committed to making progress towards the euro as one solution of the problems that he highlights?

Scottish Parliament: Beef on the Bone (1 Dec 1999)

George Lyon: I, too, welcome today's decision. It is good to see the Executive following along the lines that the industry has been calling for over the past three years—all such decisions must be taken on the basis of science, not politics, unlike pre-1996. The industry is still concerned about the other measures that were put in place because the pre-1996 regulations were not enforced properly. Can...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Rural Challenge Funding (2 Dec 1999)

George Lyon: To ask the Scottish Executive what steps are being taken to ensure that Here We Are Ltd of Cairndow will not lose any or all of its rural challenge funding as a result of the Scottish Executive's decision to call the project in for review. (S1O-748)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Rural Challenge Funding (2 Dec 1999)

George Lyon: I thank the minister for his response. However, given that this is a local community project and that the community has put a huge amount of work into raising the necessary funds to get the project off the ground, can the minister assure me that the review process will be completed by 31 March? Any further delay will mean that the project will forfeit £30,000 from Argyll and the Islands...

George Lyon: To ask the Scottish Executive how much public money has been invested through Argyll and the Isles Enterprise (AIE) in Bell Woven of Dunoon; whether it will provide a detailed breakdown of how the money has been spent; whether it will outline how much of the money AIE is entitled to claim back as a result of the Bell Woven factory shutting, and whether the conditions on which AIE invested...

George Lyon: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget (2000-01) (15 Dec 1999)

George Lyon: Does Andrew Wilson also agree with the provision in Mr McCreevy's budget that stipulates that everyone in Ireland who wants to access the country's national health service can receive free health care only if they earn less than £11,000 per year? Anyone who earns above that must contribute to a private insurance scheme.

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget (2000-01) (15 Dec 1999)

George Lyon: The debate offers a good opportunity to discuss Scotland's first budget. The discussion has been reasonably constructive, although not always. On behalf of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, I welcome the increase in real-terms spending from the low, in 1997-98, of £14.17 billion to £15.8 billion by 2001. That is a significant increase in resources coming into Scotland, and especially into...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget (2000-01) (15 Dec 1999)

George Lyon: I will come to the Liberal Democrats' specific spending commitments, of which education was a key priority. Although we welcome the huge increase in funding that will come into Scotland in the next two or three years, there is still a major case to be made at Westminster for the Chancellor of the Exchequer to free up some of his huge reserves. I hope that Scottish ministers will make a case...
