Scottish Parliament: Health (27 Oct 2005)

Euan Robson: I welcome the debate and thank the minister for the clarity of his speech, although I apologise for not being here to hear the start of it. I also thank him for the Executive's swift response to Professor Kerr's report and for the contents of "Delivering for Health", which I am sure will receive the same positive response as "Building a Health Service Fit for the Future" did. I trust that NHS...

Scottish Parliament: Health (27 Oct 2005)

Euan Robson: I am aware of it, but I am not intimately familiar with it. I took the opportunity, along with other members, to visit the stand that was recently located in the garden lobby and I found the information that was provided helpful. Professor Kerr's report and the Executive's response should be seen not in isolation but as part of the wider agenda to ensure healthier lives. The minister...

Scottish Parliament: Health (27 Oct 2005)

Euan Robson: I recognise that. There is a good working relationship and it needs to be built on to ensure that the outcomes that we all desire from the Kerr report and the Executive's response are delivered. I passionately believe that we must do much more to foster career structures that allow greater movement for staff between the health and the social work and social care sectors. There should not be...

Scottish Parliament: Structural Funds (South of Scotland) (6 Oct 2005)

A south of Scotland objective 2 programme was established with a budget of £44 million for six years. The programme commenced in April 2000 and it will close in March of next year. The campaign to establish the distinct south of Scotland region was long in the making before 1999. Its success...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Avian Influenza (6 Oct 2005)

Euan Robson: I am grateful to the First Minister for that comprehensive reply, but in view of the continuing publicity about a pandemic in the international media, will he consider scheduling after the recess a ministerial statement on preparations and the production of an information leaflet for the Scottish public?

Scottish Parliament: Planning Reform (5 Oct 2005)

Euan Robson: I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in today's debate. I welcome the white paper and the intention to introduce a planning bill in due course. It is right that we should have a fit-for-purpose planning system. A root-and-branch reform is well overdue and this is an important opportunity for the Parliament to underline again its relevance to the everyday life of the nation. The...

Scottish Parliament: Planning Reform (5 Oct 2005)

Euan Robson: Clearly, the matter is for discussion, but we should not underestimate the importance of the work of the Parliament's committees. Requiring the minister to give evidence on his proposals to a committee would be a valid way of ensuring public scrutiny of the national planning framework. On developments below the national planning framework, I understand that the emphasis on streamlining the...

Scottish Parliament: Waverley Railway (Scotland) Bill: Preliminary Stage (28 Sep 2005)

Euan Robson: It is, of course, a privilege to speak in the democratic forum of the nation, but I feel especially honoured to do so today because I have the opportunity to contribute to a debate of such importance to my part of the world—the Scottish Borders. Parliament has the opportunity to vote in principle to restore the Waverley railway line, initially as far as Tweedbank. My hope is that in years...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive's Programme (7 Sep 2005)

Euan Robson: I am pleased to have the opportunity to open the debate on behalf of the Liberal Democrats. Not surprisingly, we welcome the content of the legislative programme that was announced by the First Minister yesterday, and we look forward to working with our coalition partners to take the bills through Parliament, thereby completing our four-year partnership for government programme. This...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive's Programme (7 Sep 2005)

Euan Robson: Indeed, osteoporosis is a distressing and disabling disease and one that I believe we could do more to combat. The centrepiece of health legislation in the next few months will be the vulnerable adults bill; obviously, that bill has particular resonance for me as I represent a Borders constituency. No one will disagree that it is important to make the necessary changes in legislation, the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive's Programme (7 Sep 2005)

Euan Robson: One of the privileges of being an MSP is to meet people and to be discomfited by what they say. I recall how, as a minister, I met a young woman from Inverness who, between the ages of six and 16, had lived in about 12 homes. She had started in Inverness, had moved ever southwards to Dumfries and had then gradually come back north to the city where she had started out 10 years before. Would I...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Health and Community Care: NHS Borders (Community Hospitals) (30 Jun 2005)

Euan Robson: Does the minister agree that what is at issue is the regeneration of health facilities in both towns in my constituency?

Will he join me in congratulating local action groups on their constructive engagement in the consultation process?
