Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Public Safety and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill (2 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: Will Roseanna Cunningham give way?

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Public Safety and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill (2 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: I welcome the introduction of the bill. Mr Ruddle's release exposed a loophole in the law and it is important that that loophole be closed. It is also important to emphasise that, within a month of the loophole being exposed, Parliament is to consider emergency legislation, which has been drafted quickly despite having to take into account the complexities of the European convention on human...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Public Safety and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill (2 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: But is Mr MacAskill suggesting that the Government should initiate a committee of inquiry during the course of legal proceedings? That would probably be unprecedented during a series of appeals.

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Public Safety and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill (2 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: I take Mr McLetchie's point. That is a clear legal issue which should be addressed; presumably it has been addressed in relation to the European convention on human rights. It is important that the interim legislation stands the test to which it will be subjected in further appeals. How would Mr McLetchie have reacted had the Minister for Justice ignored the law officers' advice? I suggest...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Public Safety and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill (2 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: I will restrict my comments to section 3 and the inclusion of personality disorder in the Mental Health (Scotland) Act 1984. I, too, have some reservations about that, but I do not believe that the provision should be taken in isolation. Further tests would be applied before someone was detained; they would have to establish that someone not only had a personality disorder, but was a danger...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Justice: Justice (6 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive to specify the current court running costs per case for the Edinburgh, Duns, Haddington, Jedburgh, Peebles and Selkirk courts in the categories of overall, solemn work and summary work.

Scottish Parliament written answers — Justice: Justice (6 Sep 1999)

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Public Safety and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 2: Section 1 — Continued Detention of Mentally Disordered Patients on Grounds of Public Safety (8 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: I will confine my remarks to amendment 7, and in particular the process that is described therein, as I do not understand it well. It appears from the amendment that the appeal and the sheriff's order can happen only once, and that ministers must then apply the sheriff's order. Does the facility exist to repeat the process if circumstances change? The way the amendment is phrased means that...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Executive Business: Transport (16 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: When I first read the Conservative motion in the business bulletin, I thought that there was a mistake—that the date should have been 1 April instead of 15 September. The antipathy of the iron lady to the iron horse was legendary, and that is just one of the problems with the Conservative motion. In the Scottish Borders, 96 per cent of the population has access to one or more cars. That is...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Executive Business: Transport (16 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: There is a case for public investment in that railway line, but I am not sure how that investment is to be achieved. However, there is a major opportunity to open the line and relieve congestion in Edinburgh. If one considers the rates of commuting from the Borders to Edinburgh, it is evident that much could be achieved by the reintroduction of the railway line and by investing in public...

Scottish Parliament: Water Industry (16 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: Is the minister aware that the model of consumer representation that is in the statement is not widely accepted? In the energy industry, for example, the need for the consumer body to be independent of the regulator is well recognised. What informed and industry-oriented body will criticise the water industry commissioner if he acts against the interest of consumers?

Scottish Parliament: Crime Prevention (23 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: This is an important debate and it is a pity that there are distractions in Harrogate and Inverness, but I welcome the fact that it is taking place and I welcome the Executive's motion. There is widespread agreement that the best way to fight crime is to tackle its causes in the community. We must concentrate on detection and prevention and keep police services up to strength. I note that...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — scottish executive: Farm Support (23 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive what progress is being made on the introduction of an independent appeal mechanism for farmers suffering penalties in relation to their European Union subsidy claims. (S1O-368)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — scottish executive: Farm Support (23 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: I thank the minister for his answer and for his courtesy in being in the chamber today when there are distractions—or attractions—elsewhere. Does the minister accept that farmers are alarmed at the bureaucracy and inflexibility of the rules governing integrated administration and control scheme subsidy claims and at the handling of such claims? Will he undertake to include current...

Scottish Parliament: Public Finance and Accountability (Scotland) Bill (30 Sep 1999)

Euan Robson: At the risk of some repetition, I would like to welcome the bill and the minister's statement. The bill is clearly the product of exhaustive consultation before and since the establishment of the Parliament. Indeed, the phrase "consultation fatigue" might apply. On behalf of the Liberal Democrat party, I add our appreciation of the financial issues advisory group's report. One of our...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Health: Health (7 Oct 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will establish a post polio clinic within the Scottish Health Service and circulate details of post polio syndrome to health boards in Scotland.
