Scottish Parliament: Scottish Pork (23 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on the percentage of pork in Scottish supermarkets that is reared in Scotland. (S4O-05709)

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Pork (23 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: What else can the Government do to ensure that customers are not misled on supermarket labelling? Can we praise Aldi and Lidl for having 100 per cent Scotland-reared pork in their supermarkets? The other supermarkets should take that as good practice.

Scottish Parliament: British Sign Language (Scotland) Act 2015 (Implementation) (16 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: 14. To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making in implementing the British Sign Language (Scotland) Act 2015. (S4O-05669)

Scottish Parliament: British Sign Language (Scotland) Act 2015 (Implementation) (16 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: I am sure that the minister will agree that it is important for parents and families to get involved at home in the teaching of a child. What specific support is given to parents of a deaf child to ensure that that child can get the most out of their school?

Scottish Parliament: High-speed Broadband (Access) (15 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Will the cabinet secretary expand on which other companies, such as mobile phone companies, will provide superfast broadband? Are you in discussions with them to share masts? Are you in discussions with local authorities who will buy into those plans?

Scottish Parliament: Forth Road Bridge Inquiry (15 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: When the minister talks about priorities, is the top priority the safety of the users of the bridge at all times?

Scottish Parliament: Garden Lobby (Lighting) ( 3 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: 1. To ask the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body whether it will consider improving the lighting in the garden lobby exhibition space to increase visibility and allow better photo opportunities. (S4O-05625)

Scottish Parliament: Garden Lobby (Lighting) ( 3 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Given the significant cost and technical problems, I can fully understand that approach. Does the Parliament provide the additional lighting for the exhibition boards? Could any additional lighting be added? When organisations display their events and exhibitions here, they want to ensure that they can get out good-quality photographs on their social media.

Scottish Parliament: Food Waste ( 3 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: I am sure that Linda Fabiani is not expecting this question, either. On the same topic of food waste, I wonder whether the SPCB has considered—it probably has—what happens in the mornings when breakfast is over. What is left goes into waste immediately. Can we not consider putting the bacon, sausages et cetera into rolls—I love cold bacon rolls—and selling them on later?

Scottish Parliament: Footway Parking and Double Parking (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 ( 1 Mar 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Today, I was walking along and found a car impeding the whole pavement. I had no option but to go on to the road. There was no space against the wall—the car took up the whole pavement and I had to walk into on-coming traffic. It took me 10 minutes because I had to wait for assistance—the guide dog refused to go into on-coming traffic.

Scottish Parliament: Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2016 (23 Feb 2016)

Dennis Robertson: I thank all the members who supported the motion and those who have stayed back on this very late evening in the chamber. This is an historic day for the Parliament, given that we have reached an agreement in principle with the United Kingdom Government on the fiscal settlement for the devolved powers. I am sure that that will take the headlines tomorrow, but I sincerely hope that what I am...

Scottish Parliament: Burial and Cremation (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (11 Feb 2016)

Dennis Robertson: I found the meetings of the Health and Sport Committee on the bill difficult because we were talking about something that is quite close to me as an individual and as a parent. What I found difficult was how emotive it was. Those giving testimony at committee were very brave because it is difficult to talk about the pain of loss without being emotive. I think that the bill is going to go a...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Industry (Jobs) (10 Feb 2016)

Dennis Robertson: What discussions is the Government having with the oil and gas sector and the wider supply chain to ensure that the appropriate skills will be retained in the event of the recovery, which I hope will be in the not-too-distant future?

Scottish Parliament: North Sea Oil and Gas Industry (26 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Last week, the minister welcomed the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee’s report, “Future prospects for oil and gas in Scotland”. Will he say whether, with the co-operation and collaboration of the trade union movement and the oil and gas companies, he is able to look carefully at the supply chain in the industry? There are many people with many skills in the supply chain who feel...

Scottish Parliament: Jobs in Scotland’s New Economy (20 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Like my colleagues in the chamber, I congratulate Lesley Brennan on her maiden speech. It took me back to my own, and, if her knees were shaking, just like mine were at the time, I have every sympathy with her. The motion before us today is not surprising, coming from the Greens, but I am not sure that it acknowledges where we are currently. Where we are today is reflected in the report from...

Scottish Parliament: Jobs in Scotland’s New Economy (20 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Much more remains to be said, but in conclusion I want to make it clear that this is all about working together. The sector, the unions and the politicians—whether they be local, here at Holyrood or at Westminster—need to do all they can to sustain the current industry, which is and will be at the heart of our economy now and into the future.

Scottish Parliament: Jobs in Scotland’s New Economy (20 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Will Alison Johnstone take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Jobs in Scotland’s New Economy (20 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: Does Alison Johnstone agree that we should try to ensure that our young workforce of the future are given the diverse skills that will allow them to work in either industry—continuing in oil and gas or working in renewables, as is the case with Advanced Industrial Solutions—AIS—in Westhill in Aberdeen?

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Spending (13 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: 14. To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to increase spending on mental health. (S4O-05247)

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Spending (13 Jan 2016)

Dennis Robertson: I thank the minister for that comprehensive answer and I welcome the increase in spending. Can the minister confirm whether any national strategy or guidance is being considered to aid the transition of people from child and adolescent mental health services to adult services?
