Scottish Parliament: Ministers (19 May 1999)

Euan Robson: I hope that Mr Lochhead will concede that the English-Scottish boundary is not the responsibility of the partnership agreement. It is clear that we need an early debate on that subject. It is also clear that the fishermen's associations were not consulted in any way, shape or form. Indeed, delegations are coming today to Parliament to talk about the subject. However, I hope that Mr Lochhead...

Scottish Parliament: Ministers (19 May 1999)

Euan Robson: I support the motion. I have been especially interested in the debate on tuition fees and in Mary Scanlon's assumption about the outcome of the report into tuition fees and the debate that will follow it. My belief is that the partnership Government will offer stability, coherence and a sense of direction for the first four years of the Parliament. Such a climate is especially important for...

Scottish Parliament: Ministers (19 May 1999)

Euan Robson: As we have won the seats, I think we have a mandate. Earlier, I tried to make a point about the fishing dispute. That matter arose before the formation of the partnership Government. It is of considerable importance, and I hope that we can have an early debate on it. What happened impinges on the rights of this Parliament-it should not have been dealt with as it was. The consultation on...

Scottish Parliament: Ministers (19 May 1999)

Euan Robson: I have finished.

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (3 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: I am a Tweed commissioner and therefore must declare some form of interest, although my interest is non-pecuniary. We remember Mr Canavan coming down to Kelso, in the Borders, with several of his pieces of paper. I recall him fishing opposite a noble residence, studiously ignored by everyone save a few distant onlookers. Mr Canavan has some misconceptions about freshwater fishing. What he...

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (3 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: I will give the prices for my local association: £5 for a day, £10 for a week and £20 for a season. All that money is reinvested into the river. That is the point: the Tweed protection order, about which there was considerable debate recently, has enhanced fishing and allowed its management. Fishing is predominantly managed by local angling associations. While I share Mr Canavan's...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundaries (3 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: I hope that the amendment provides an appropriate way forward that will assist fishermen and their organisations. It has been a cause of some frustration to a number of us that it has not been possible for this Parliament to change the boundary order and that we can only seek to persuade Westminster to do so. The intention of my amendment is to back the fishermen's case. I welcome the fact...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundaries (3 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: If I may take a charitable view of what occurred, the answer is that the committee concentrated on how the line should be drawn, not why there should be a line. I have found no reference anywhere to lines of custom and practice, or to the line that is clearly set out-as Richard Lochhead explained-in the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency's annual report. With great respect to the minister,...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundaries (3 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: I have almost finished.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundaries (3 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: I am happy to explain. To use fishing terms, we have perhaps exceeded our quota of motions and amendments during this debate. We have moved on. We have obtained some assurances from Mr Finnie and the case that he will take to UK ministers on behalf of the fishermen offers a practical way forward. I must make it clear to David McLetchie that I do not dissent from Richard Lochhead's motion,...

Scottish Parliament: Legislative Programme (16 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: I particularly welcome the incapable adults bill, which will be an important piece of legislation. I agree with Roseanna Cunningham that it will attract wide support, and I am sure that we will handle it in the sympathetic manner that is necessary. I also welcome the land reform bills as an important part of the progress in updating our legal system. One slightly cautionary note about the...

Scottish Parliament: Freedom of Information (23 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: On behalf of Liberal Democrat members, I welcome the minister's statement. It is particularly important that he has made clear that the code will be introduced because, if it is not, there will be no such facility after 1 July. Does he hope to use the concepts of prejudice and harm that are mentioned in the code-emphasising the tighter test of harm-in the draft legislation?

Scottish Parliament written answers — Environment: Environment (30 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it intends to provide a framework for aggregates forecasting for Scotland and sub markets within Scotland, and targets for the use of secondary and/or recycled materials.

Scottish Parliament written answers — Transport: Transport (30 Jun 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive when it intends to publish the Trunk Road Review for Scotland.

Scottish Parliament: Fish Processing Industry (2 Jul 1999)

Euan Robson: Mr Davidson must forgive me if I have misheard him, but this problem is not unique to the north of Scotland and the North of Scotland Water Authority. It is of particular concern to Eyemouth in my constituency and to the East of Scotland Water Authority. Does he agree not only that the Government does not seem to have properly consulted, but that the water authorities seem to have been less...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Rural Affairs: Rural Affairs (2 Aug 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will circulate information on the 2000-01 round of Rural Challenge Funding earlier than in previous years to allow community groups more time to research and complete their applications.

Scottish Parliament written answers — Rural Affairs: Rural Affairs (2 Aug 1999)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive what proposals it has for continuation funding for Rural Partnerships.
