Scottish Parliament: ScotRail (Compensation for Delays and Cancellations) (21 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: Does the cabinet secretary agree that if Mr Rumbles is so concerned about solving the delays, it is high time that he joined us in calling for the devolution of Network Rail so that the Scottish Government has the levers to start addressing all the issues that impact on the performance that Mr Rumbles is concerned about?

Scottish Parliament: Family Courts (Children’s Interests) (16 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to review how children’s interests are best served by family courts. (S5O-03242)

Scottish Parliament: Family Courts (Children’s Interests) (16 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: I welcome the cabinet secretary’s comments. Having to go to family court can be stressful for everyone. Family courts should try to look at the bigger picture and ensure that children’s needs are met. Too often cases involve lawyer against lawyer, with the family in the middle, one party blaming the other and mounting legal bills. How can we improve the system to ensure that it is less...

Scottish Parliament: Seasonal Agricultural Workers (15 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: Will the cabinet secretary agree that it is scandalous that three years after the Brexit vote farmers still do not, due to Tory inaction, have any certainty or clarity about their workforces? Scandalous! [ Laughter .]

Scottish Parliament: M74 (Noise Surveys) (9 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: 4. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the noise surveys of the upgraded section of the M74. (S5O-03215)

Scottish Parliament: M74 (Noise Surveys) (9 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: When the work was carried out on the M74, the contractors removed a number of fully grown trees and bushes that had acted as a noise reducer. Through my pressure and discussion with Transport Scotland, the fully grown trees and substantial bushes have now been replaced with what I can only call very-few-twig trees and small bushes along the route. The local primary school and my constituents...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Autonomy (Ring-fenced Funding) (2 May 2019)

Richard Lyle: Can the cabinet secretary confirm that the overall additional funding in 2019-20 will amount to more than £600 million? Is it not the case that the 3.8 per cent real-terms increase in funding empowers local authorities to decide how to improve lives in local communities?

Scottish Parliament: Film Industry (25 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to help the film industry. (S5O-03138)

Scottish Parliament: Film Industry (25 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: That is quite impressive. What action is the Government taking to encourage outside production firms and producers to come to Scotland? Does any department in the cabinet secretary’s portfolio have regular discussions with the film industry?

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Recruitment and Retention (24 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: I begin by reflecting on the general state of the national health service in Scotland. I suggest that we have a health system to be proud of. Since I became an MSP in 2011, the NHS budget has gone from £10 billion to more than £13 billion. Unlike those who like to complain, particularly in the chamber, we get on with the day job and resolve issues through local health boards, not in the chamber.

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Recruitment and Retention (24 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: No, I have no time. Like many others in the chamber, I have constituents who come to my surgeries with health inquiries, which we resolve. Yes, with any organisation there will be delays and complaints, but it is solving each and every complaint that gives me satisfaction. That is what we do for constituents.

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Recruitment and Retention (24 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: No, I do not have any time. Our health service has to cope with many issues, too numerous to mention in the time that I have available. The health service deserves more credit than it gets, and I regularly contact my local GPs when required. I get annoyed because, time and again in the chamber, there is political criticism of our health service. Rather than trying to get resolutions at local...

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Recruitment and Retention (24 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: I have no time.

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Recruitment and Retention (24 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: No, I do not have time.

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Recruitment and Retention (24 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: The SNP has the most significant investment plans for the NHS. The other parties have no answers to the recruitment and retention of GPs, which is what we are discussing today. I value each and every one of our GPs. I had the good fortune of having a part-time job as an out-of-hours driver for NHS 24 before I became an MSP. I drove doctors, who worked at night and at weekends, to house calls...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (4 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: I thank the clerks for their work on the Rural Environment and Connectivity Committee report, and I welcome and support the bill at stage 1. It is especially important for everyone to take note of part 1 of the bill, which covers low-emission zones—an important matter that gives the bill great purpose. I am concerned about the poor air quality in certain areas and that is why I want to...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (4 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: I am sorry, but I do not have time. As a member of the committee, I believe that we should listen to the views of Guide Dogs Scotland with regard to loading and unloading. I am sure that the issue will be resolved during the next stage, following discussion with Guide Dogs Scotland. I will raise a final issue, in respect of which I declare an interest as the convener of the cross-party group...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (4 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: My name is not Richard Yule; it is Richard Lyle.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Police Authority Budget (2 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: For the avoidance of doubt, will the cabinet secretary reiterate what percentage capital uplift there is for the police in the Scottish budget this year? Will he also remind the Parliament which parties voted against that increase?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (2 Apr 2019)

Richard Lyle: Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our age, and Scotland’s international leadership on climate change means that our plans must be ambitious, credible and affordable. That is exactly what the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill delivers. The bill is set against a backdrop of Scotland being a world leader in tackling climate change and on the...
