Scottish Parliament: Motions, Decisions and Parliamentary Time (5 Oct 2006)

Mr Bruce McFee: Karen Gillon is correct that I did not make it to the committee meeting in question. However, had I done so I would have been expressing my own views, not the views of the SNP group. Nevertheless, given that the committee was arguing for radical change, it seems strange that I would have had to be there to ensure that it did something about that.

Scottish Parliament: Motions, Decisions and Parliamentary Time (5 Oct 2006)

Mr Bruce McFee: Iain Smith—among the pistachio, strawberry and chocolate 99s—came up with a line that I very much agree with.

However, it was Susan Deacon who hit the nail on the head. One of the first...

Scottish Parliament: Motions, Decisions and Parliamentary Time (5 Oct 2006)

Mr Bruce McFee: Alex Johnstone is right on both counts. He said that the report was not particularly daring, and that is true. He raised the question of stage 3 debates.

What a pity he voted that suggestion down when he had...

Scottish Parliament: Motions, Decisions and Parliamentary Time (5 Oct 2006)

Mr Bruce McFee: I am glad I did not hear that. As far as I understand it, members can indicate that they wish a debate to be extended—although I cannot remember it ever being done—thus allowing the Presiding Officer to make a decision. That would mean that members' contributions were not stifled. However, that proposal was thrown out, too. Proposals on the proportion of debating time that is allocated to...

Scottish Parliament: Motions, Decisions and Parliamentary Time (5 Oct 2006)

Mr Bruce McFee: I entirely agree that we should have a mechanism that enables us to hear all amendments being debated at stage 3. Many of us have been present when that has not been possible. Could Mr Johnstone tell us exactly which proposal in the report he supported that would have allowed that to happen? For example, did he support increasing the time by which timetabling deadlines can be extended from 30...
