Scottish Parliament: Prayers (18 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: I, too, support the motion. One of the few things that I share with Mike Russell is an Episcopalian background. Indeed, we are two of only three Episcopalians for independence-a new movement that we started up earlier this year. As a Motherwell supporter as well, I think that St Jude must be my patron saint. I support the motion and I appeal to the Government's business manager, Mr McCabe,...

Scottish Parliament: Prayers (18 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: On a point of order, Mr Presiding Officer. Under the standing orders, is it feasible to accommodate some of the amendments that have been suggested, so that Mr Dewar's point can be included at this stage?

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Will the First Minister give way?

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Will Dr Simpson give way?

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Can Ross Finnie tell me why three of his party's members voted against the document because of the policy on tuition fees? I walked past Mr Raffan as he was addressing a camera in a somewhat animated manner; he was saying that he would not vote for the document for that reason. Do those members misunderstand the policy?

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: On a point of order, Sir David.

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Now that the Government team, including Mr Macavity, is in place, can I draw your attention to the fact that it is now 19 May and, from consultations with the chamber office, I understand that parliamentary questions will not be received for answer before 2 July, after which time the Parliament will go into recess? Therefore, we will not receive an answer to any deliberative parliamentary...

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: It is not being heard then.

Scottish Parliament: Junior Ministers (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: We were told this morning that the business motion was not going to be debated today.

Scottish Parliament: Sitting Days (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: I would like to repeat the point that I made earlier on a point of order, and I hope that the Government's Business Manager will respond. My understanding from the chamber office is that parliamentary questions will not be taken or read until 2 July, after which we go into recess. That means that legitimate questions will not be answered until September. Earlier I said August, but a quick...

Scottish Parliament: Sitting Days (19 May 1999)

Andrew Wilson: I would like to clarify two issues that are at stake. The first is debates before the Parliament that Mr Salmond, and others, raised, and the second is the putting down of questions for written answer. The practice in the House of Commons is that written answers can be tabled and will be replied to in the form of letters to the members concerned. As I understand it, answers are placed in...

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (2 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: rose-

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (2 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Will Mr Chisholm reflect on the question put to him by Mr Salmond and on the fact that the seats referred to at Westminster are seats in the chamber, and that the seats referred to here are also seats in the chamber, not seats in terms of geographic area? Short money is intended to finance the functioning of a healthy Opposition-the 35 seats that my party takes up here. If Mr Chisholm cannot...

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (2 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: I will address motion S1M-27 on the transfer of functions to Scottish ministers under section 63 of the Scotland Act 1998. I welcome and concur with Mr McLeish's comments on the new democracy, but I ask him to reflect on the fact that, to be effective, any Opposition must be fully functioning. From the start of this Parliament, there has been a range of evidence to suggest that the Executive...

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (2 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: rose-

Scottish Parliament: Devolution (2 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Give way.

Scottish Parliament: Committees (8 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: I will risk Mr McAllion's disdain by contributing to this afternoon's debate. I draw the Business Manager's attention to motion S1M-7, in which a call was made for committees of the Parliament to meet around Scotland on a roving basis and, where appropriate, to meet permanently at locations outwith the Edinburgh campus. That motion has been signed by members of all six parties represented in...

Scottish Parliament: Legislative Programme (16 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: Which of the eight bills would not have been presented by a Labour Government were it not for the negotiations with the Liberal Democrats in the partnership agreement? In other words, which of the eight bills did the Liberal Democrats exact in their vigorous negotiations with Labour?

Scottish Parliament: Legislative Programme (16 Jun 1999)

Andrew Wilson: I begin by pointing out to Phil Gallie, in relation to his comments to Margaret Ewing on unionist parties, that six parties are represented in this chamber, three of which support independence as an end aim, albeit that two of those parties have only one member in the chamber. I call that constitutional progress. Also, after Paul Martin's outrageous attack on the people of Bearsden this...
