Scottish Parliament: Meningococcal C Immunisation (27 Oct 1999)

Euan Robson: I join in the welcome for the minister's announcement. Would a 17-year-old who is a student be better advised to take the MenC vaccine at home or to take what is available through the university authorities? If that question cannot be answered here, could some advice be given?

Scottish Parliament: Open Question Time — Scottish Executive: NHS Pay Negotiations (28 Oct 1999)

Euan Robson: Will the minister pay particular attention to the rates of pay of laboratory assistants, who seem to be remarkably poorly paid compared with other workers in the health service, but who deliver a vital and effective service?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish University for Industry (28 Oct 1999)

Euan Robson: I, too, support the Scottish university for industry. It will bring new learning opportunities to the home, the workplace and the community through the creation of a multimedia learning network.

Euan Robson: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture and Rural Affairs (4 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: The cereals sector has not been given much coverage in this chamber, so I would like to spend a moment or two talking about arable aid, which is the support mechanism for the cereals sector and which is based on agricultural census data. It is widely recognised that, historically, the census data that define the arable base area are defective in that the base area is understated. That leads...

Scottish Parliament: Open Question Time — scottish executive: Joint Working (4 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: Will the minister consider at least planning ahead purchases of land to allow the dualling scheme for the A68 Dalkeith northern bypass?

Scottish Parliament: Open Question Time — scottish executive: Joint Working (4 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: Obviously, in his previous career Mr Tosh was not a geography teacher. He has failed to recognise that, for the eastern Borders and east Berwickshire, the announcement on the Haddington to Dunbar section is of major significance. Is he not aware of the efforts that have been made by the A1 safelink campaign to ensure that there will be a major safety upgrading on the A1? Does he not...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Finance: Finance (10 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive how many bodies which do not fall under section 21 (2) (a) of the Public Finance and Accountability Bill received an income of more than £100,000 last financial year and received less than 50% of their income from public funds as defined in Section 21(5) of that Bill.

Scottish Parliament: Borders Rail Link (10 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: I pay tribute, as is done in the motion, to those who have campaigned steadfastly over many years for a rail link to the Borders. Between 1969 and 1970, a short-lived Border union railway company pioneered some work. Recently, Borders Transport Futures Ltd has kept the flame alive. A formidable and perhaps unexpected ally recently emerged in the shape of Mr John Nelson, the former director...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Justice: Justice (11 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it has plans to amend the Sheriff Courts (Scotland) Act (1971) to ensure that in establishing and maintaining such Courts, due regard is paid to "the desirability, the expense and inconvenience occasioned to those directly involved" as is required of local authorities in connection with District Courts in the Local Government (Scotland) Act (1994).

Scottish Parliament: Temporary Sheriffs (11 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: Does the Minister for Justice accept that it would be wrong to allow an undue backlog of civil cases to develop? There have already been concerns about the rise in such cases. Furthermore, will today's judgment have any implications for judgments that have been made in civil cases since May?

Scottish Parliament: Subordinate Legislation (11 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: I welcome the statement. It is clearly correct to make appointments and I hope that there will be more women judges as a result of today's draft order. One out of 27 is not the most creditable of situations. My main concerns are about the future, when the five judges return from their important duties at the Lockerbie trial and the Paddington rail disaster public inquiry. I hope that we will...

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive what plans it has to support and strengthen the work of trading standards officers in Scotland's local authorities. (S1O-660)

Scottish Parliament written answers — Education: Education (19 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive to list the local authorities in Scotland that charge music tuition fees in their schools.

Scottish Parliament: Land Reform (24 Nov 1999)

Euan Robson: I refer to the "Register of Members' Interests"—I am a Tweed commissioner. The Deputy First Minister said that land reform had not been on the agenda for about 75 years. I think that it was Lloyd George who last introduced it. Today, nobody should be in any doubt that the process of reform is under way. Jim Wallace referred to the Executive's actions over the summer, such as the opening of...
