Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill (15 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I join other members in welcoming the minister to his new role. I congratulate my constituents in the village of Newton on the work that they have done in presenting the case for a direct link road between the new bridge and the M9. I thank the Forth Crossing Bill Committee for the way in which it received the community's representations on that and other issues. For the past 18 months, I...

Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill: Stage 3: After section 74 (15 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: Members may be aware that my preferred course of action—it was clearly the course of action that has the most support among my constituents—is for a direct road link between the new Forth crossing on the south side of the river and the M9. I still believe that that is the best option not only for my constituents in Newton and the surrounding area, but for everyone who wants to use the M9...

Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill: Stage 3: After section 74 (15 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I hope that the minister will understand that the amendment is framed as it is because the road in question is maintained by the local authority. However, I am grateful to him for his reassurances with regard to mitigation measures and seek leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 5, by agreement, withdrawn.

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance Settlement 2011-12 (9 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: Last week, official statistics revealed the second-lowest number of new houses being built in Scotland since 1981. I am sure that many people will be disappointed that today, in a statement on local government finance, the cabinet secretary has made no reference to, and has given no explanation of, the reduction in next year’s housing budget. Shelter and the Chartered Institute of Housing...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive Question Time — Justice and Law Officers: Antisocial Behaviour (9 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I have recently had to deal with a case in my constituency in which a young tenant who, sometimes under the effects of drug abuse, has been involved in antisocial behaviour, terrorising neighbours, some of whom are elderly and living alone. The local authority said that it was limited as to what it could do because the sheriff was happy to deal with drug offences but clearly did not see...

Scottish Parliament: Property Factors (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (8 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: This has been an excellent debate in which all members have made quite heartfelt pleas for legislation. That is not always the case in this chamber. As Jim Tolson pointed out, owners need early information about their property factor and the services that they can expect to receive because the lack of such information simply stores up problems for the future. After all, as Sandra White and...

Scottish Parliament: Property Factors (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (8 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I, too, am pleased to take part in the stage 1 debate on the Property Factors (Scotland) Bill. I congratulate Patricia Ferguson on getting the bill to this stage, and I thank Mike Dailly of the Govan Law Centre for his contribution and support. No MSP in the Parliament will not at some time have been contacted by a constituent who is having problems with their property factor. However, it...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (2 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: It appears that the saying "Another Thursday, another economy debate" is coming true, but I commend the Liberal Democrats for choosing yet another economy debate as it is also true that, unless we grow the Scottish economy, neither the Scottish Government nor local authorities will have the financial resources to provide the services that we believe benefit our communities. I will come back...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (2 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: We will do so when we have a debate on the draft budget bill. The Scottish Government has spoken about levering in other resources, but has not said from where. The local authority might find itself constrained by the 1 per cent increase in borrowing from the Public Works Loan Board, and housing associations have seen housing association grant cut and private borrowing is more difficult....

Scottish Parliament: Economy (2 Dec 2010)

Mary Mulligan: The Government has reduced the capital budget and that is the issue. That brings me on to retail. Having worked in retail in Edinburgh and Glasgow, I know about the support that it gives to our tourism trade. Retail employs close to 250,000 staff across Scotland and contributes to economic growth and regeneration locally and nationally, but it is not immune to the harsh economic climate. The...
