Scottish Parliament: Airdrie-Bathgate Railway and Linked Improvements Bill (28 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: In the light of Mr Adam's commitment to railways, which I welcome, how can it make sense for the Scottish National Party to oppose the building of a railway line to an airport that serves 78 million people a year?

Scottish Parliament: Airdrie-Bathgate Railway and Linked Improvements Bill (28 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: I agree with many previous speakers, including Karen Whitefield and Mary Mulligan, that the project will bring economic, environmental, social and educational benefits to people throughout the M8 corridor. It will mean that my constituents in places such as Livingston and Broxburn will be able to travel to North Lanarkshire and, in particular, to Glasgow to take up employment and...

Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Police Numbers (West Lothian) (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: To ask the Scottish Executive what change there has been in the number of police officers serving West Lothian since 1999. (S2O-12463)

Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Police Numbers (West Lothian) (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: I welcome the fact that the number of police officers in Lothian and Borders police has increased. Will the minister join me in commending West Lothian Council for setting up, in partnership with Lothian and Borders police, a specialised unit to tackle antisocial behaviour? Does she see that as a model that should be followed by local authorities and the police throughout Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: Does Colin Fox prefer Margaret Thatcher?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: One of my main motivations for becoming involved in politics and joining the Labour Party was the desire for everyone in the country to have good opportunities in life through an excellent education, comprehensive and modern health provision, and the prospect of stable and rewarding employment. I also became involved in reaction to the devastation that the Thatcher Governments visited on the...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: I want to make progress. At times, such as in the 1980s and 1990s, the Tories have devastated whole sections of our economy and abandoned communities. We should not forget the role—of which Charlie Gordon reminded us—that the SNP played in bringing Margaret Thatcher to power. I will consider Scotland's modern constitutional settlement, and how our economy has developed in the past 10...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: I am afraid that I am about to finish, Margo. Scotland has been doing well in recent years, but because of increasing challenges from other parts of the world we will continue to do well only if we adopt whole-heartedly the skills and knowledge agenda that the First Minister has outlined. The alternative offered by the SNP is years of turmoil and introspection caused by separation from the...

Bristow Muldoon: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: Does Mr Morgan not recognise that Scotland has a new constitutional settlement that is only 10 years old, not 300 years old? Is it not time to allow that constitutional settlement to deliver for the people of Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh Airport Rail Link Bill: Final Stage (14 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh Airport Rail Link Bill: Final Stage (14 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: I congratulate the bill's promoter, TIE, and members of the Edinburgh Airport Rail Link Bill Committee, who gave up much of their time to scrutinise the detail of the bill. As I said in the preliminary stage debate, Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are the main airports that serve the majority of the Scottish population, but they have no direct rail links, which puts them at a disadvantage in...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh Airport Rail Link Bill: Final Stage (14 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Births (St John's Hospital, Livingston) (8 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: To ask the Scottish Executive how many births there have been at St John's hospital, Livingston, in the last five years. (S2O-12296)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Births (St John's Hospital, Livingston) (8 Mar 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: I am sure that the minister recognises that the increasing number of births at St John's hospital reflects not only the work of that excellent local hospital, but the fact that there is a young and growing population in West Lothian and in the parts of Edinburgh that are served by that hospital. Will he assure me that the maternity services that are provided at St John's hospital will...

Scottish Parliament: Prostitution (Public Places) (Scotland) Bill (28 Feb 2007)

Bristow Muldoon: In my speech at stage 1, I indicated to Parliament that I believed that the bill as initially drafted had major problems, many of which were highlighted in the Local Government and Transport Committee's stage 1 report, for which Mr Ewing wants to take credit. Although Mr Rumbles was not fully convinced of the case for there being a higher penalty for the purchaser, the committee agreed...
