Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Education and Young People, Tourism, Culture and Sport: Social Workers (15 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: I thank the minister for that most encouraging news—an increase in the number of social workers of 25 per cent is valuable. Does the minister plan to continue the fast-track graduate recruitment scheme? If so, what will be the timeframe? Does the minister agree that that scheme is part of an overall package for social work, and that, if the social work sector wishes to advance, it should...

Scottish Parliament: Coeliac Disease (14 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: I also congratulate Margo MacDonald for securing the debate and I thank the people who were involved in this morning's reception and the display that has been set up outside the chamber. If one in 100 people is affected by coeliac disease, as I am sure is the case, about 1,000 people in my home area, the Scottish Borders, and as many as 500 people in my constituency are affected. More than...

Scottish Parliament: Making the National Health Service Local (14 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: This is an important debate, particularly if it really does mark a sea change in public policy. My party has long wanted a new emphasis on, to use the words of the Minister for Health and Community Care's motion, a shift in the balance of care away from episodic care in the acute sector to health promotion, preventive and anticipatory care. That is not to suggest for one moment that there...

Scottish Parliament: Making the National Health Service Local (14 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: Yes, I see no reason why community pharmacies should not be involved in that, in co-operation with others who retail such products. We can do so much more to improve the health and well-being of the nation. Lives can be made better if we develop anticipatory care, improve the speed of diagnosis, deliver services as close to the patient as possible, and support and work in partnership with...

Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Bottle Marking Scheme (8 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it has any plans to promote and extend the traceable bottle marking scheme nationwide. (S2O-11968)

Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Bottle Marking Scheme (8 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: Will the minister look to evaluate a number of such schemes, including the one that has been running for some 18 months in Peebles, in my colleague Jeremy Purvis's constituency, and others in south Edinburgh? As she says, the schemes are an important way of combating underage drinking and preventing the recruitment of the next generation of alcohol abusers.

Scottish Parliament: Justice and Law Officers: Cigarettes and Alcohol (Underage Sales) (8 Feb 2007)

Euan Robson: In a recent answer to a parliamentary question, it was stated that there have been only around two or three prosecutions for selling cigarettes to under-16s. Is the minister thinking of measures to revise the law on selling cigarettes to under-16s to make it more workable, or is there an enforcement problem?

Scottish Parliament: Battle of Passchendaele (90th Anniversary) (31 Jan 2007)

Euan Robson: I add my congratulations to Murdo Fraser on having secured this debate on an important subject. He talked about the nature of the battle of Passchendaele and how it saw the greatest loss of life. He also mentioned the significant contribution that Scots soldiers made to the battle and I noted that the King's Own Scottish Borderers, from my part of the world, took part. The commander-in-chief,...

Scottish Parliament: Health Board Elections (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (31 Jan 2007)

Euan Robson: I congratulate the member in charge of the bill, Bill Butler, on the way in which he has progressed his proposal thus far. I appreciate the courtesy that he extended to me personally and to my Liberal Democrat parliamentary colleagues by coming to discuss the bill with us on two or more occasions. Today, we are asked to debate the general principles of the bill and it will be no surprise to...

Scottish Parliament: Health Board Elections (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (31 Jan 2007)

Euan Robson: Ms Robison has just heard an indication of support for the proposal from within the chamber. The committee I was referring to would likely be based on social work services, in which there is an increasing need to co-ordinate activities with health care professionals. I believe that that is the way forward. The members of the committee, as councillors, will have been democratically elected;...

Scottish Parliament: Health Board Elections (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (31 Jan 2007)

Euan Robson: No; that question shows a fundamental misunderstanding. I want to discuss the three subsidiary points mentioned by Bill Butler. First, I do not think that he really addressed—although he tried to—the issue of remuneration. Secondly, as he said, the 14 constituencies will have to be changed by the bill, if it progresses. Thirdly, the percentage of board members to be elected will clearly...

Scottish Parliament: Health Board Elections (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (31 Jan 2007)

Euan Robson: No, I am in my last minute. The issues that I have just mentioned are subsidiary to the main point, which is that there is a better way to achieve the objectives that Bill Butler has set out in his bill. Those objectives are shared, and the search for an alternative way of achieving them is shared by many of the professional witnesses who appeared before the Health Committee, including...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Further and Higher Education: Further and Higher Education (26 Jan 2007)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General: MSSA Infection (25 Jan 2007)

Euan Robson: I thank the minister for his helpful and detailed answer and welcome a number of the measures that are being taken. However, does he think that measures specifically to combat MSSA need to be introduced? If so, should further guidance in that regard be issued to health boards?
