Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Fire Services (2 Jul 1999)

Angus MacKay: Statutory responsibility for the provision of fire services rests with the fire authorities. Negotiations on conditions of service are continuing with no indication that industrial action is imminent. However, we will keep matters under review.

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Fire Services (2 Jul 1999)

Angus MacKay: The original proposals for changes to terms and conditions have been whittled down to seven points; those will be discussed at two further meetings that are to take place at the national joint council for local government services. The employers have made it clear that they do not intend to impose changes to pay and conditions. Negotiations should, therefore, continue without a breakdown in...

Angus MacKay: There are no specific plans at present affecting Dumfries and Galloway but a review of the structure of police and fire services in Scotland is under way.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive: Dumfries and Galloway (24 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: I fully accept that retention of public confidence in police and fire services is critical. That is precisely why, after announcing a review, the steering group will now be composed of representatives of the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities, the police service and the fire service. We have repeatedly made it clear that any change to the structure of services would have to leave in...

Scottish Parliament: Devolved Legislation (23 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: Some concerns have been raised twice and I have addressed them already. I understand that the FSA is in the process of issuing-if it has not already done so-a consultation paper that may address some of the concerns raised by the Law Society. There are 72 Scottish MPs at Westminster who are perfectly capable of raising those concerns during the passage of the bill if they relate to...

Scottish Parliament: Devolved Legislation (23 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: What is important is that, when it considers bills, the Parliament is clear about the scope and nature of their impact on devolved matters. As long as that is clear and the Executive and the Parliament have the opportunity to make it clear, the Parliament should be able to come to a rational conclusion about whether it accepts bills being passed at Westminster. I do not feel that there are...

Scottish Parliament: Devolved Legislation (23 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: I have a slightly lengthy speech to make. I shall be as brisk as possible, to ensure that all members who want to participate will have time to do so. I am speaking to this motion, which has been lodged by the First Minister, as the three bills that it concerns fall within the field of civil law. As the First Minister said in his statement to the Parliament on 9 June, both the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Devolved Legislation (23 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: I know that Mr Swinney has concerns about this matter and that the Law Society of Scotland has made representations to both the FSA and the Treasury. I intended to cover that point in my speech or in winding up, but I will say at this point that our legal officers will examine the details as we do not want there to be double regulation. It may well be that the legislation that will go...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish EXECUTIVE: Fire Service (17 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: The review of the service in Scotland is examining the structure of the fire service. It therefore has no implications for the fire service pension scheme.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish EXECUTIVE: Fire Service (17 Jun 1999)

Angus MacKay: If I remember rightly the first supplementary question that was asked, no, I cannot explain why the Fire Brigades Union has issued the document to which Lloyd Quinan referred. However, I know how the confusion has arisen. The initial question was about the review of the structure of the fire service. The pension scheme is a separate matter, which is currently the subject of a consultation...
