Scottish Parliament: Scottish Elections (Reform) Bill: Stage 1 (6 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: I note that the consultation included a proposal to remove the current legal requirement for candidates’ addresses to appear on ballot papers for local government elections. I have written to the ministers, asking whether they also intend to allow candidates to have their addresses withheld from publication on council websites and noticeboards on council premises, so as to protect...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Elections (Reform) Bill: Stage 1 (6 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: My point was about a candidate that I know of, who was formerly abused by her husband. She was distraught when her new address was published by the council.

Scottish Parliament: Social Prescribing (18 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: I welcome the opportunity to contribute to this important debate on social prescribing. I noted with interest the recommendations and findings of the Health and Sport Committee’s report. I am a bit puzzled: when we do a report, should we not also look at where we get the money to do the things that people have come out with this afternoon? Perhaps we should bring in that budget scrutiny in...

Scottish Parliament: Social Prescribing (18 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: No, I will not. Physical activity, sport and social prescribing play a significant role in preventative care for health and wellbeing. The term “social prescribing” may be unfamiliar to many, but it has been around since the 1990s, at least. As we know, it is the alternative to a clinical intervention: a doctor can prescribe physical activity, volunteering, or a community activity, for...

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland (Budget) (20 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: Oh!

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Visa (20 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: In light of the widespread criticism by Scottish industry and employers of the United Kingdom Government’s immigration proposals, will the First Minister outline what response UK ministers have made to proposals for a Scottish visa?

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (Orkney) (26 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: I agree that it is important that we continue to attract people to work in the tourism sector, particularly in the Highlands and Islands. [ Laughter .] What impact does the cabinet secretary think the UK Government’s new immigration plan will have on the tourism industry in Scotland—and the Highlands and Islands?

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland (Draft Budget 2020-21) (26 Feb 2020)

Richard Lyle: All of that begs the question of what the Tories are doing in England. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to this debate on justice. It provides an opportunity to consider what the Tories have said about policing in Scotland, and to shine a light on the SNP Government’s record of delivery of policing in Scotland. Indeed, the SNP Government has a record on policing that it can be proud...

Scottish Parliament: Fly Tipping (5 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: Will the cabinet secretary provide an update on what plans the Scottish Government has to review the national litter strategy?

Scottish Parliament: Local Authority Funding (5 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: Scotland’s annual budget has fallen in real terms by 2.8 per cent over the past decade. Does the cabinet secretary agree that, when it comes to ensuring sufficient funding for local authorities, Tory members of the Scottish Parliament should join us in calling for that UK Government cut to be reversed? The hypocrisy of Tories in this Parliament is astounding.

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2020 [Draft] (10 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2020 [Draft] (10 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: Does the member agree with me that the Tory party has severely cut councils in England? The cuts there are greater than the cuts that Scotland’s councils have had to suffer.

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2020 [Draft] (10 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: I am sorry, Presiding Officer.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Supporting our Communities) (18 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: I commend the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government on her statement. The £70 million food fund is especially welcome, but I am concerned that low-income families with schoolchildren, who will not be at school after Friday, might not be able to give them a hot meal each day. Previously, most councils ran programmes during the summer holidays so that children could get a...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Advice for Pregnant Women) (19 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: A constituent of mine who is a teacher is now at home, as per Government advice. Are we advising other women who are pregnant to do likewise?

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Armed Forces) (19 Mar 2020)

Richard Lyle: There are unconfirmed reports that Army units are setting up in Strathclyde park in my constituency. What discussions has the First Minister had with the armed forces high command in Scotland regarding the emergency, and will Army units be used during it?
