Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: No; I am sorry but I do not have time. The final elements of the bill that I wish to reflect on are in parts 4 and 5. They recognise the changes that are required to support effective performance across a plethora of planning functions, including the strengthening of planning authorities’ ability to use their powers to ensure appropriate enforcement of unauthorised development. The changes...

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: No; I am sorry—I do not have time. Finally, part 5 of the bill delivers on an idea that I think is very worth while and has the potential to deliver a significant return for communities, as it allows for the provision of an infrastructure levy that is payable to councils, linked to development. The levy can be used to fund or contribute to infrastructure projects that can incentivise the...

Scottish Parliament: Ferry Services (Northern Isles) (24 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: I for one think that the minister is doing an excellent job. [ Interruption .] I welcome the minister’s statement. The SNP Government has a strong record in supporting Scotland’s ferries and the communities that depend on them. Could the excellent minister set out just how much the Government has invested in supporting ferries in Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Ferry Services (Northern Isles) (24 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: They should follow.

Scottish Parliament: Council Tax Banding (Appeals) (23 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what mechanism is in place to allow a council tax payer to appeal against a banding that they consider incorrect. (S5O-02130)

Scottish Parliament: Council Tax Banding (Appeals) (23 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: What, if any, discussions has the cabinet secretary had with the relevant joint evaluation board on appeals against banding decisions? I would like a full reply and would like the cabinet secretary to take no notice of the timing clock in the chamber that has been introduced to speed up ministerial answers.

Scottish Parliament: Housing (23 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: Oh!

Scottish Parliament: Housing (23 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: I am ready, Presiding Officer.

Scottish Parliament: Housing (23 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: Thank you, Presiding Officer. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to a debate on an issue with which I am very familiar, having served as a councillor on Motherwell District Council and, subsequently, on North Lanarkshire Council for some 36 years. Housing is, of course, a core role for local government. I hope that today’s debate will provide me with an opportunity to address that...

Scottish Parliament: “Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Strategy” (9 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: 2. To ask the Scottish Government how the digital health and care strategy will help to deliver person-centred care. (S5O-02058)

Scottish Parliament: “Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Strategy” (9 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: How does the strategy contribute to the on-going work on the integration of health and social care in our communities? Does the cabinet secretary agree that the use of a mix of technology, as well as traditional methods, is key to delivering sustainable care now and in the future?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Investment Bank (8 May 2018)

Richard Lyle: Mr Lindhurst should look at his own party’s incompetence. As we debate the Scottish national investment bank, the word “ambition” jumps to the fore: ambition for Scotland, its economy and its people. I welcome the publication of the “Scottish National Investment Bank Implementation Plan”, as I consider it to be yet another milestone in our journey of delivering the environment to...

Scottish Parliament: Electric Vehicle Charging Points (18 Apr 2018)

Richard Lyle: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to improve the provision and variety of locations of charging points for electric vehicles. (S5O-01978)

Scottish Parliament: Electric Vehicle Charging Points (18 Apr 2018)

Richard Lyle: I raise with the minister the case of a constituent who wished to use the Government’s generous scheme to install a charging point but was denied permission to do so by his housing association. Does the minister agree that we should encourage, rather than discourage, the installation of charging points? I invite the minister to have further discussions with the housing minister about...

Scottish Parliament: Air Quality (17 Apr 2018)

Richard Lyle: Scotland has much to be proud of in its role as a leader on the issue. With more stringent air quality targets than elsewhere in the UK, and with domestic and European targets across much of Scotland being met, we are making progress. “Cleaner Air for Scotland: The Road to a Healthier Future”, which was Scotland’s first national air quality strategy, was published in 2015. It set out...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Mar 2018)

Richard Lyle: I will get all that time, so thank you, Presiding Officer. I welcome the opportunity to speak on an issue that is important to all our constituents, including mine in Uddingston and Bellshill. The bill concerns the responsible allocation of funds in relation to the Scottish Government’s debt limit, and it is on that point that I will begin my remarks. I have no doubt that no one in the...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Mar 2018)

Richard Lyle: Every house that is built is a house that houses a family. The member knows that as well as I do. The ONS acknowledges that if we do not agree to proceed with the bill, RSLs will continue to be classified as public sector bodies in the national accounts, with the result that all new net borrowing by RSLs will count against the Government’s borrowing requirements. That would impose a...

Scottish Parliament: Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Bill (20 Mar 2018)

Richard Lyle: I want to begin this afternoon by reflecting. I know that many members across the chamber believe that I am always for development, but I am also a believer in conservation, particularly when it comes to the aims of this bill. We are privileged in Scotland to have beautiful areas that are enriched with forests and trees. Aberdeenshire, for example, which I have visited a lot recently, is...

Scottish Parliament: Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Bill (20 Mar 2018)

Richard Lyle: I do not have time. I am sorry. I thank the cabinet secretary for his work and the approach that he has taken on the bill. He has continually made himself and officials available to the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee in its considerations and has sought to work collaboratively with those who have an interest in doing so. He has my high respect. Of course, the cabinet secretary has...
