Angus MacKay: To ask the Scottish Executive how much has been spent on hospital buildings in each year since 1996

Scottish Parliament: Local Government in Scotland Bill: Stage 1 (2 Oct 2002)

Angus MacKay: If I may interrupt the mutual congratulation between the suits on the Conservative benches, I would like to ask Mr Aitken a question. Why does he think that it is objectionable to introduce a power of community planning for local authorities when he says that they should be doing that anyway? Further, why did his party think it entirely unobjectionable to introduce CCT, which he presumably...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government in Scotland Bill: Stage 1 (2 Oct 2002)

Angus MacKay: Abject necessity?

Scottish Parliament: Local Government in Scotland Bill: Stage 1 (2 Oct 2002)

Angus MacKay: I enjoyed Colin Campbell's James Herriot-like reminiscences along the lines of "It shouldn't happen to an SNP councillor". Apparently, from what he said, it did not. However, I speak very much in the spirit of Tavish Scott to support the social inclusion (Unst) bill that will extend rights to enable the distinguished—I am sure—council member for Unst to participate in local council...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: It is a pleasure to speak after Margo MacDonald. I agreed with almost everything that she said about Edinburgh and with almost nothing that she said about the powers of the Parliament. That is no great surprise. I want to turn first to the Conservative contribution. I am glad that Mr Mundell has returned to his seat in time to hear this, because I will begin by complimenting him. He was, as...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: No—I will not be taking any interventions and I have much to say that I am sure Annabel will want to hear.

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: The Conservative party here has two groupings these days—and even today we can see some interesting seating arrangements. There are the mad privateers, who foam at the mouth at what they perceive as ideological dogma, but who have no other thought processes; and there are the camp followers, those who joined the party a very long time ago and sadly cannot remember why they are still there....

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: No. Lord James Douglas-Hamilton made one useful contribution to the debate: he exposed the utter hypocrisy of the nationalists on this issue as on every other. They are in favour of congestion charging when it suits them, and opposed to congestion charging when it suits them—no matter in which part of Scotland or in which city.

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: I will return to our Liberal Democrat colleagues in a moment. I am sure that the Conservatives will enjoy my contribution on that. The job of a transport policy must be twofold. It must support our economy and our business growth, and it must support the delivery of social justice in every community in Scotland. To do that, two things must happen: we must have a meaningful dialogue with...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Investment) (26 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: No. Mr Greig welcomed the additional money on roads and transport. Mr Mundell was slow in quoting that particular contribution. As Lord James has outlined, congestion charging is the subject of the day in Edinburgh. The Labour administration is at least trying to come to grips with Edinburgh's transport problems, and it is doing so bravely. John Farquhar Munro had a kick at Labour in its...

Scottish Parliament: Emergency Services Staff (4 Sep 2002)

Angus MacKay: I thank Karen Gillon and congratulate her on securing the debate, particularly as several of the recent incidents have taken place in my constituency and involved my constituents. In the recent past, I was lucky enough to have performed the role of Deputy Minister for Justice. In that context, I was able to work directly with representatives of the emergency services in a variety of ways. On...

Scottish Parliament: Secretary of State for Scotland (Meetings): Congestion Charging (13 Jun 2002)

Angus MacKay: Does the First Minister agree that any proposals for congestion charging in Edinburgh must meet two criteria? The first is that no charging regime can be put in place unless the current consultation exercise, which was launched yesterday and which covers the whole of the south-east of Scotland, demonstrates clear public support for such a scheme. The second is that a range of improvements to...
