Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Sector (Training and Support) (23 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I thank the cabinet secretary for her answer, but can she give us some more detail on how the training to work in tourism, food and drink, and life sciences is made accessible to people in order to create a sustainable, diverse economic future for the north-east?

Scottish Parliament: Food (17 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I did not sign the motion, because although I read the report and thought that it was very good, I think that something is missing: it needs a stronger emphasis on where people buy their food every day. People buy their food from the major retailers. We need to take a stronger approach with the major retailers, not just by having better legislation and regulation as in other countries, but by...

Scottish Parliament: Food (17 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Education (Spending Per Pupil) (16 Mar 2016)

Scottish Parliament: Education (Spending Per Pupil) (16 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I thank the cabinet secretary for that interesting answer. Will she outline whether total revenue spending on schools in Scotland has risen since the Scottish National Party came into government in 2006-07?

Scottish Parliament: Schools Autism Awareness Week (16 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I, too, thank Mark McDonald for bringing the debate to the chamber because, at the end of the day, the Parliament has maybe not been as good as it could have been regarding the autism awareness week initiative from the National Autistic Society Scotland. Such initiatives have to be celebrated, and there is a time and a place for doing that. I am delighted to be part of the debate and to make...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Payments (9 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I want to make a point to Alex Johnstone, who is a farmer. He talked about using the market and making sure that in the far future our farming communities and farming industry will not need so much help. However, we need to be very careful about that because this is not the time and place to have that argument. I ask him to make sure that, as Alex Fergusson said, we are all behind our farming...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Payments (9 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: We heard it here first: Alistair Darling is not part of the Scottish Labour Party—that is incredible. It would be good if it is made very clear in the closing speeches that we all stand for farming and for making sure that farmers get help, whatever happens in the future. As the First Minister said, and as the cabinet secretary has confirmed, “We are less than halfway through the payment...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Payments (9 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: For many years, I have told farmers in the north-east that they should take their lead from their French counterparts. Elaine Murray and Tavish Scott talked about France. I remind Mr Scott that Scotland, unlike France, is not a member state.

Scottish Parliament: Rural Payments (9 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I say to farmers: be more French. I will tell those who come to the Parliament tomorrow that that is important. We need CAP reform. We need a payment for farmers. We should buy local and trust our Scottish farmers.

Scottish Parliament: Rural Payments (9 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: Does Tavish Scott agree with me that the Government in England at least took the decision in 2005, while the then Minister for the Environment and Rural Development in the Scottish Government sat on his hands?

Scottish Parliament: Families Affected by Murder and Culpable Homicide (3 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I thank Graeme Pearson for bringing the subject to the chamber for debate. I read his motion, although I did not sign it. In his speech, he only really talked about the motion at the end. I absolutely agree with what he said in the rest of his speech. I know that he has vast experience of the matter, and he opened our eyes to what families have to endure, and particularly the economic burden....

Scottish Parliament: Delayed Discharge (NHS Grampian) (2 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: 12. To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making in tackling delayed discharge in the NHS Grampian area. (S4O-05606)

Scottish Parliament: Delayed Discharge (NHS Grampian) (2 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: I thank the cabinet secretary for her answer, which was welcome news indeed. What impact have junior doctors had on making this welcome reduction? How much has protection of the existing deal for junior doctors helped NHS Grampian’s recent success?

Scottish Parliament: Good Food Nation (1 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what its plans are for Scotland to become a good food nation by 2025. (S4T-01339)

Scottish Parliament: Good Food Nation (1 Mar 2016)

Christian Allard: The cabinet secretary will know how much I have worked over the years to encourage the people of Scotland to buy and eat Scottish food, as it is the best choice for our environment, our food security, our health and the sustainability of our communities. What are the Scottish Government’s plans to ensure that major retailers give Scottish consumers a real choice to buy Scottish produce?
