Scottish Parliament: Single Outcome Agreements (29 May 2013)

Richard Lyle: 6. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to strengthen single outcome agreements as part of its response to the commission on the future delivery of public services. (S4O-02170)

Scottish Parliament: Single Outcome Agreements (29 May 2013)

Richard Lyle: The recent “Weathering the storm?” report from the Carnegie UK Trust praised Scotland’s adoption of an outcomes-based approach across the public sector. What is the minister’s assessment of that report?

Scottish Parliament: Banks (Branch Closures) (5 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: I congratulate John Mason on bringing the issue of bank closures to the chamber today. It is an issue that will have an impact on the lives of many people in Scotland. As an ex-employee of RBS, I refer members to my entry in the register of members’ interests. I receive a pension from RBS. I worked for RBS for 10 years as a regional manager, and my whole division was made redundant by the...

Scottish Parliament: Parliament Building (Wooden Spars) (6 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: 5. To ask the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body what work is being carried out on the wooden spars—or shutters, if you want to call them that—on the Parliament building, at what cost and in what timescale. (S4O-02225)

Scottish Parliament: Parliament Building (Wooden Spars) (6 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: I thank Linda Fabiani for telling me that they are louvres. If someone stands in committee room 2 and looks towards the windows in committee room 6, they can see that the outside spars or shutters—or louvres—are in a bad state of repair and are weather beaten. I suggest that the member goes up and takes a look. The windows also require attention. What steps will be taken to ensure that...

Scottish Parliament: Crofting (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (6 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: I welcome the bill. As a member of the Rural Affairs, Environment and Climate Change Committee, I fully support the bill—and the Government’s swift action—because I believe that it is the right thing to do. However, not everyone is of that belief. There are people outside Parliament who think that the bill has been hurried through. I ask them to think of the landlords, crofters and...

Scottish Parliament: Youth Sport (11 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: I welcome the opportunity to debate the positive issue of supporting a sporting nation, particularly as I am a member of the Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee. I want to start my speech by talking about what sport means to people who take part in it. Sport is something that we can all do, be it by taking a walk down the Royal Mile to Parliament in the morning, having a run around...

Scottish Parliament: Hydro Power (18 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: Hear, hear.

Scottish Parliament: Funfair Licensing (20 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: 5. I refer members to my entry in the register of interests, as I am the chair of the cross-party group on the Scottish Showmen’s Guild. To ask the Scottish Government what action it can take regarding restrictions imposed on funfair licences by local authorities. (S4O-02286)

Scottish Parliament: Funfair Licensing (20 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: West Lothian Council is currently imposing conditions on funfair licences that are not covered by any act of law—namely, the erection of fencing around the entire funfair—and which make the fair uneconomic. The council is therefore causing the cancellation of several funfairs at local gala days in its area. What can the Parliament do to encourage councils not to impose unrealistic...

Scottish Parliament: First World War (Centenary) (27 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: I thank members for supporting this members’ business debate. I first became interested in the subject when I was a boy. My grandfather fought in the war, and his family preserved its memory through their purchase of a publication called “The Great War”, which the Amalgamated Press produced after the war. The book that I have in my hand is one of a set of 12 that I possess. The first...

Scottish Parliament: First World War (Centenary) (27 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: It is a fact that it was felt that a position could be attacked but some officers were 26 miles behind the lines. I agree with the member’s comment. I spoke of the effects that the great war had, and I intend to highlight what I mean by that. In his study of wars since the 1400s, Evan Luard stated that “the First World War transformed traditional attitudes to war. For the first time there...

Scottish Parliament: First World War (Centenary) (27 Jun 2013)

Richard Lyle: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Historic Environment Strategy (10 Sep 2013)

Richard Lyle: Scotland’s historic environment is, indeed, wide and varied, as we have heard. It encompasses everything from archaeological sites, buildings and architecture to gardens and marine sites. It covers the very well-known sites such as Edinburgh castle, which thousands of people visit every year, to the perhaps less well-known sites such as the covenanters site in Bothwell, which does not get...

Scottish Parliament: PFI Service Charges (NHS) (18 Sep 2013)

Richard Lyle: 6. To ask the Scottish Government how much the national health service pays each year in private finance initiative service charges. (S4O-02387)

Scottish Parliament: PFI Service Charges (NHS) (18 Sep 2013)

Richard Lyle: Does the cabinet secretary share my concern about the figures and recognise that the money spent on servicing such disastrous contracts, which were agreed under a previous Government, would have been better spent on continuing to improve standards of patient care across the NHS in Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (18 Sep 2013)

Richard Lyle: Name and shame him!

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (18 Sep 2013)

Richard Lyle: Yes.

Scottish Parliament: Ryder Cup 2014 (26 Sep 2013)

Richard Lyle: I promise that there will be no golf jokes in my speech. I also confess that I am not a great golf fan. However, I am a fan of what the Ryder cup can do for Scotland and, unlike Neil Findlay, I welcome the debate. The Ryder cup is the most prestigious team golf tournament and it attracts vast commercial interest from a large selection of multinational brands. It will also bring thousands of...

Scottish Parliament: Access to New Medicines (9 Oct 2013)

Richard Lyle: As a member of the Health and Sport Committee, I too am happy to take part in this debate, which is on a matter of great importance to the people of Scotland. I note the petitions that were lodged with the Public Petitions Committee, in response to which the Health and Sport Committee made it a priority to explore the issue. As my colleagues have done, I record my thanks to the convener,...
