Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Poindings and Warrant Sales Bill: Stage 1 (27 Apr 2000)

Euan Robson: Thank you, Presiding Officer. I would like to take the opportunity to apologise to members if I missed one of the opening speeches. I recall being here throughout two of them; it is sometimes difficult to find out who is opening and at what time. The report of the Justice and Home Affairs Committee said that "poindings and warrant sales are an inhumane and anachronistic method of enforcing...

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (3 May 2000)

Euan Robson: I wish to record that the Liberal Democrat party is not attracted to amendment 1 or 37 and will support neither. The public interest is not best protected by the proposals. We believe that the Crown works for the Crown, and it is not clear to us what supervisory or protective role it would play on behalf of the public interest. In the politest of manners, Professor Rennie told the Justice and...

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (3 May 2000)

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc (Scotland) Bill (3 May 2000)

Euan Robson: The Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc (Scotland) Bill is very welcome. It is the start of the land reform process in the Parliament. I add my thanks to those that have already been expressed: to the clerks of the Justice and Home Affairs Committee for their skill in guiding the committee through the bill; to the convener for keeping the committee on track; to the witnesses for their evidence; to...

Scottish Parliament: Telecommunications (11 May 2000)

Euan Robson: I, too, welcome this report, with the important development that it proposes, and the Stewart report that was published today. There will be widespread agreement on the key recommendations of both reports that masts should be subject to full planning controls. Tavish Scott mentioned the Stewart report's recommendation 1.36, that "for all base stations, including those with masts under 15 m,...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Local Government: Local Government (18 May 2000)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive what targets have been set for the implementation of Agenda 21 strategies by local authorities and how the progress of such strategies is being monitored.

Scottish Parliament: Prisons (Slopping Out) (18 May 2000)

Euan Robson: There is agreement in the chamber that the practice of slopping out should end, and the sooner the better. As Winston Churchill said, it is possible to judge the degree of civilisation of a society by the state of its prisons. If that is true, Scotland is falling down, to a degree. It has been said that the practice of slopping out should not have continued into the 21st century. I agree....

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether school children have visited water treatment or sewage works in Scotland in the last five years and, if so, what safety and protective precautions were taken, and should by law have been taken, during such visits.

Scottish Parliament: Infectious Salmon Anaemia (24 May 2000)

Euan Robson: Can the minister give any preliminary indications, from the wild fish surveillance that he mentioned, of the prevalence of the virus in the environment? Can he confirm that tests on the specimens in the Tweed have proved negative?

Scottish Parliament: Race Relations: "Rural Scotland: A New Approach" (25 May 2000)

Euan Robson: I welcome the document, as it mentions a number of good examples of best practice from throughout Scotland. I hope that we can work on those models for the future, taking the examples that have been worked up in some parts of rural Scotland and planting the seeds in other parts. In my area, there have recently been a number of significant developments. Good examples are the Tweed Foundation...

Scottish Parliament: Race Relations: "Rural Scotland: A New Approach" (25 May 2000)

Euan Robson: Does the member accept that the common-law position is that the right to access enclosed land exists, and that the suggested statutory provision simply formalises an ancient right?

Scottish Parliament written answers — Waste Management: Waste Management (30 May 2000)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive what practical and financial assistance it will give to Scottish Borders Council to address the consequences of Scottish Ministers’ dismissal of the council’s appeal against a waste management condition at the Easter Langlee landfill site near Galashiels demanded by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency under section 43 of the Environmental Protection...

Scottish Parliament: Borders Rail Link (1 Jun 2000)

Euan Robson: When?

Scottish Parliament: Borders Rail Link (1 Jun 2000)

Euan Robson: I had the unusual pleasure of coming to Parliament today by train. That is not something that I can do from Kelso, where I live, but I long for the day when I shall be able to do so. This important debate marks a further stage in the re-establishment of the railway in and through the Scottish Borders, which was cruelly and unjustifiably removed from our midst over the years leading up to...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish executive: Genetically Modified Organisms (1 Jun 2000)

Scottish Parliament written answers — Legislation: Legislation (7 Jun 2000)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will introduce subordinate legislation to exempt low income groups such as those on income support from court fees when lodging a small claim and, if so, when it plans to do so.

Scottish Parliament: Diligence (8 Jun 2000)

Euan Robson: I welcome the statement. It is widely agreed that reform is long overdue. Does the minister recognise the role of advice agencies such as Money Advice Scotland and the citizens advice bureaux not only during the consultation period and the passage of the legislation, but afterwards, in handling problems of debt? Is there any plan to consider the resources available to them—particularly...
