Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (31 Oct 2019)

Richard Lyle: That is a good one, Peter.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Onshore Unconventional Oil and Gas Policy (3 Oct 2019)

Richard Lyle: To ensure that there is no doubt and no fudge, as some members have suggested, can the minister confirm that, unlike England, we in Scotland will resist fracking to the best of our ability?

Scottish Parliament: Children (Equal Protection from Assault) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (3 Oct 2019)

Richard Lyle: Amendment 1, in my name, has attracted the support of colleagues across the chamber. I think that that cross-party support is a reflection of the fact that legitimate concerns are shared by colleagues on all sides. I share those concerns. Members will recall the rather forthright comments that I made the last time the bill was discussed. I must admit that I am concerned. I am the father of...

Scottish Parliament: Children (Equal Protection from Assault) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (3 Oct 2019)

Richard Lyle: Today, during a school visit by Taylor high school, I was asked what I believe in. I believe in the rule of law and I believe that I should stand up and share my concerns at each and every opportunity, and that, most of the time, I should listen to my constituents who have emailed me, sharing their concerns regarding the bill. I also believe that I should be allowed to share those concerns...

Scottish Parliament: Motorway Improvements (Compensation for Residents) (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: 6. To ask the Scottish Government how much compensation has been paid out to residents by the M8/M73/M74 motorway improvements project, including for noise pollution and house damage. (S5O-03562)

Scottish Parliament: Motorway Improvements (Compensation for Residents) (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: The cabinet secretary will be acutely aware of the many questions that I have asked both in and outwith this chamber, on behalf of my constituents, about the M8/M73/M74 improvement programme. How soon will we get a fuller picture on whether my constituents will receive other compensation for their inconvenience? How will that information be communicated to them?

Scottish Parliament: Pre-release Access to Economic Statistics (Committee Bill Proposal) (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: I have only just joined the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee, but I am wondering whether I have made the right decision. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to this committee debate on the pre-release access to statistics bill proposal. A key element of producing official statistics is ensuring that they are properly understood by stakeholders and the public. Pre-release access is...

Scottish Parliament: Pre-release Access to Economic Statistics (Committee Bill Proposal) (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: No, I need to make progress—I am using the usual Tory rebuff.

Scottish Parliament: Pre-release Access to Economic Statistics (Committee Bill Proposal) (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: No. Statisticians place considerable value on ensuring that ministers respond to statistics in an informed way, based on a correct understanding. I believe that removing PRA would mean that statisticians would have considerably less opportunity to influence the immediate reaction of ministers to statistics. Alternatively, ministers could end up saying that they are unwilling to comment until...

Scottish Parliament: Funeral Costs (Support) (12 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: 4. To ask the First Minister what support the Scottish Government is providing to people struggling to meet funeral costs. (S5F-03537)

Scottish Parliament: Funeral Costs (Support) (12 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: I welcome what is being done. This month marks the first anniversary of Social Security Scotland. It is clear what a positive difference the Scottish Government has made by using its new powers over social security, especially when we compare the approach in Scotland with the UK system that it replaces. That is welcome, but does the First Minister think that the Scottish Government will...

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Policy (Universities and Scientific Research) (10 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: Oh, hip, hip, hooray!

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Policy (Universities and Scientific Research) (10 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: I did not have the opportunity to go to university. Instead, I entered the world of work early, but I pledged to myself that my two children would not be the same and that they would have the chance to go to university—they did so, which made my wife and I very proud. I did that because I believe that the opportunity to learn is of the utmost importance and that we should work to make it a...

Scottish Parliament: ScotRail Services (5 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: Can the First Minister give an indication of what proportion of train delays are attributable to Network Rail? Does she agree that, as I have said previously in the chamber, Colin Smyth and his colleagues might want to heed the advice of their former transport minister and support our request for the functions of Network Rail to be devolved so that it, too, is answerable to the Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Impact on Farm Incomes) (4 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the findings of the Andersons Centre research on the impact of a no-deal Brexit on farm incomes. (S5O-03473)

Scottish Parliament: No-deal Brexit (Impact on Farm Incomes) (4 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: The report highlighted what we have always known to be the case: leaving the UK without a deal would be a disaster for Scotland’s farmers. I welcome the Scottish Government’s commitment to provide some certainty to farmers in the delivery of the current loan scheme offer. Has the UK Government given any indication that it is seeking to protect Scottish farming, be that in the form of...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (3 Sep 2019)

Richard Lyle: It is not even written.
