Scottish Parliament: Skills Strategy (28 Jan 2010)

Hugh O'Donnell: I have to accept the minister's assurances on the timing. Far be it from me to suggest that the Government would do anything untoward in that regard. SDS may have been advised of the announcement, but those who answered the telephones certainly were not. A number of employers have made that observation to me since the £1,000 for a new apprentice—which, in fairness, is welcome—was...

Scottish Parliament: Newspaper Industry (28 Jan 2010)

Hugh O'Donnell: Out of interest, I have been keeping a note of the number of name checks for local newspapers that members have made; thus far, we are up to 21. I can see all the press releases that will come out. Such name checks are not illegitimate; nor will be the complaints from those of us whose press releases are not published. In Scotland, there is a tradition of reading newspapers. Newspaper...

Scottish Parliament: Newspaper Industry (28 Jan 2010)

Hugh O'Donnell: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Newspaper Industry (28 Jan 2010)

Hugh O'Donnell: I accept what Mr Gibson said about the use of the internet, but does he recognise the internet offers additionality, not sole provision, and that, if the newspapers do not have that opportunity, we will end up with only the web, which is not readily accessible, as many members have said?

Scottish Parliament: Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (14 Jan 2010)

Hugh O'Donnell: It is always a joy and a pleasure to engage in an intelligent debate and I look forward to my next opportunity to do so. I say that because, notwithstanding the seriousness of the issue, it was a piece of party-political mischief, six months out at the most from a general election, to lodge the motion. Equally, it was a piece of kite flying by the Labour Party at Westminster to publish a...

Scottish Parliament: Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (14 Jan 2010)

Hugh O'Donnell: There has to be a national care standard, but I am not sure that there can be a one-size-fits-all approach to delivering it. Care has to be person centred and based on the needs of the individual, but there have to be minimum guidelines and a benchmark against which the service is delivered, so that the individual can see whether they are getting what they would recognise as the minimum...
