Scottish Parliament: Child Protection (12 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: The report from the committee is welcome. It highlights a number of important issues in relation to the specific remit of the committee's inquiry into the progress of the recommendations of "It's everyone's job to make sure I'm alright". I thank members for their efforts and acknowledge the work that was done by the many witnesses who gave evidence and by the organisations that made written...

Scottish Parliament: Child Protection (12 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: I am sorry, but I have a great deal to go through. I can perhaps pick up individual issues later. The pilot on e-care, which is an information technology proposal, also includes chronology as an important component. I turn to the child death and significant case reviews. As Peter Peacock indicated in his remarks, the child protection reform programme steering group has agreed an approach to...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Nutrition: Nutrition (13 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: The Scottish Executive is fully committed to improving the health and diet of young people. As part of this we aim to ensure that all schools take on the recommendations made by the Expert Panel on School Meals, one of which was that fresh free drinking water should be made available in all schools. Nutritional opinion on the merits of increasing milk consumption, other than low fat milk, is...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Education: Education (14 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: There is no specific funding stream available to support the parents of schoolchildren with food allergies.

Scottish Parliament: Eco-schools Programme (19 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: I echo members' congratulations to Cathie Craigie on obtaining the debate. I also congratulate her on her eloquent contribution and all members on their contributions. It has been an interesting debate and I have enjoyed it immensely. The Scottish Executive believes strongly that education for sustainable development helps children and young people to be more aware of their actions and their...

Scottish Parliament: General Questions: Primary Schools (Music Lessons) (20 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: The five-to-14 curriculum guidelines on expressive arts advise that all pupils in primary school should learn to sing and play instruments within a timetabled class music lesson. Inspection evidence suggests that this is happening.

Scottish Parliament: General Questions: Primary Schools (Music Lessons) (20 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: I cannot give the member that precise information, but I will find it and write to him. There has been a major investment of £17.5 million over three years in the area, and it may interest the member to know that the number of presentations at standard and higher grade has risen in recent years, so there is some cause for pleasure.

Scottish Parliament written answers — Children's Panels: Children's Panels (21 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: The retention strategy was designed to address the principal reasons for resignation, i.e. failure of local authorities to implement supervision requirements; overstretch caused by too many hearings per session and poor facilities at hearings centres; late reports; lack of support from employers, and, lack of appreciation and support for the role played by the members of the children’s...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Scottish Children's Reporter Administration: Scottish Children's Reporter Administration (21 Jan 2005)

Scottish Parliament written answers — Scottish Children's Reporter Administration: Scottish Children's Reporter Administration (21 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: Scottish ministers are required to lay copies of the Annual Report in the Parliament and this will be done for the 2003-04 report as has been done with all previous reports. Although my officials saw an early draft of the report, this was indicative only and was withdrawn by SCRA on the basis that it was undergoing further development including validation of the data. Consequently, there was...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Children's Hearings: Children's Hearings (24 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: Detailed information on the number of children referred by Children’s Reporters to a Children’s Hearing has only been available since 2002 with the roll-out of the Scottish Children’s Reporters Administration’s national database (the Referrals Administration Database). Prior to 2002 data was collated on grounds of referral considered at Children’s Hearings rather than the number of...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Community Care: Community Care (26 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: No. However, my colleague Tavish Scott, Deputy Minister for Finance, Public Service Reform and Parliamentary Business met with them on 1 October 2004. I have also had subsequent correspondence with them and suggested that they explore their concerns about the grant distribution formula with COSLA as any changes to that formula would impact on other authorities.

Scottish Parliament written answers — Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003: Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003 (26 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: A full reply to Mr Salmond’s letter of 18 November was sent on 19 January 2005. The reply was delayed so that it could reflect the outcome of further consideration of the implementation of the 2003 Act on which final announcements were made on 22 December 2004.

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Education and Young People, Tourism, Culture and Sport: Education (Science and Mathematics) (27 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: As Mr Morgan will know, the school curriculum is non-statutory. It is therefore for schools and students themselves to decide on the courses studied from S4 to S6. One priority area of school science education identified in the Executive's science strategy is to promote science as a career option.

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Education and Young People, Tourism, Culture and Sport: Education (Science and Mathematics) (27 Jan 2005)

Euan Robson: I am well aware of that survey and its results. Since January 2002, the Scottish Executive has provided education authorities with £16 million to enable primary and secondary schools to buy science equipment and to allow teachers to update their skills. A further £2 million will be provided in 2005-06. That money, I think, will be ring fenced. We have made it clear to education authorities...
