Peter Chapman: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to review the signage for the AWPR. (S5O-03233)

Scottish Parliament: Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (Signage) (15 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: I thank the cabinet secretary for that answer, but I am disappointed with it. There have been a litany of issues with the management of the AWPR project, and signage is one that is still causing problems. I will give the cabinet secretary three specific examples of where the signage falls down. First, signage at the start of the AWPR at the Stonehaven end do not include major north-east towns...

Scottish Parliament: Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (Signage) (15 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: Thank you. It is clear that the signage is not up to scratch. Will the cabinet secretary commit to working with north-east councils and communities and conduct a review of it?

Scottish Parliament: Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (Signage) (15 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I have just realised that I have been speaking about tractors and I did not declare an interest as a farmer, so I do so now.

Scottish Parliament: Sheep Farming (14 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: LFASS payments are due to be cut by 20 cent this year and 60 per cent next year. The cabinet secretary has repeatedly stated that he will limit the cuts to 20 per cent, but we have seen—

Scottish Parliament: Sheep Farming (14 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: Is that another worthless Scottish National Party promise? Can the minister give us any reassurance today that any progress has been made on mitigating—

Scottish Parliament: Compensation for Workplace Injuries (NHS Grampian) (1 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: 3. To ask the Scottish Government how much compensation has been paid to NHS Grampian staff in each year since 2016 for incidents or injuries in the workplace. (S5O-03164)

Scottish Parliament: Compensation for Workplace Injuries (NHS Grampian) (1 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: That is a significant sum, and it has risen year on year. The payments were made for a variety of incidents, including exposure to contaminated blood and violence at the hands of the public. The Government has presided over a staffing crisis for the past 12 years, with fewer employees being asked to do more and front-line staff working in demanding and stressful environments. Of course, the...

Scottish Parliament: Compensation for Workplace Injuries (NHS Grampian) (1 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: I am doing exactly that. The real issue here is that NHS Grampian has been consistently underfunded by the Government—

Scottish Parliament: Compensation for Workplace Injuries (NHS Grampian) (1 May 2019)

Peter Chapman: —and I believe that it is high time that the region was given a fair share of resources. Does the cabinet secretary agree?

Scottish Parliament: Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity (25 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: Just before the Easter recess, I took part in a debate that was led by my colleague Brian Whittle about the importance of a healthy diet to tackle Scotland’s growing problems with obesity. In our debate, we discussed how important it is to teach our kids the value of good nutrient-rich food. It is clear that, in addition, we must also teach our kids about the necessity of living an active...

Scottish Parliament: Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity (25 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: I agree with the minister. However, I believe that many more hubs for out-of-school activities should be established in order to ensure that social inclusion is available for all—coupled with the opportunity to participate in an activity of choice. We need to do more. If schools would open their facilities to more out-of-hours clubs, there would be more opportunities for local teams and...

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

Peter Chapman: Like my REC Committee colleagues, I thank the clerks and everyone who attended the committee during evidence sessions to help us to write our stage 1 report. It is clear that, across the chamber, although we all appreciate what the bill tries to do, on the whole, it lacks ambition and, if it is to achieve its aims, it will need to be amended as it proceeds. I agree with the bill’s general...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Bill (3 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: 7. I remind members of my entry in the register of members’ interests: I am a farmer. To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to introduce an agriculture bill. (S5O-03100)

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Bill (3 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: As the cabinet secretary knows, an agriculture bill is essential to allow the Scottish Government to continue to make support payments to our farmers post-Brexit. Last year’s farm business income figures showed that more than 60 per cent of farms were making a loss, with the average farm business making a loss of £7,400, without receiving additional support.

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Bill (3 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: More worrying, sheep farmers in less favoured areas were making a loss of £27,400. Those figures show how vital support payments are.

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture Bill (3 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: With that in mind, can the cabinet secretary tell me when an agriculture bill will be introduced in this Parliament?

Scottish Parliament: Health Education (3 Apr 2019)

Peter Chapman: I declare an interest as a partner in a farming business. Having spent my whole life on my farm, growing up there and then working to produce high-quality crops and meat, which involves being active all day, I appreciate the necessity of a healthy diet and a healthy, fit body. Eating good, healthy food was my fuel for long days on the farm. However, since becoming an MSP and sitting in an...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (27 Mar 2019)

Peter Chapman: Thank you for that advice, Presiding Officer. I welcome the opportunity to speak in this Green Party debate. I am certain that we all agree that climate change is one of the most important issues that we must tackle to protect future generations and the long-term sustainability of the communities that we represent. However, although we agree with aspects of Mark RuskeII’s motion, it does...
