Scottish Parliament: Maternity Services (Moray) (7 Dec 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Given the number of patient transfers that have had to be conducted, sometimes at short notice, to either Raigmore or Aberdeen, what impact does the cabinet secretary think the on-going problems have had on the already overstretched Scottish Ambulance Service in the Highlands and Islands?

Scottish Parliament: GFG Alliance (Engagement) (1 Dec 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 5. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will publish, in full, details of its engagement with GFG Alliance in relation to operations at the Lochaber smelter site. (S6O-00468)

Scottish Parliament: GFG Alliance (Engagement) (1 Dec 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Workers at the facility have experienced real uncertainty in recent years. Thousands of new jobs were promised as part of the proposals that supported Scottish Government guarantees to GFG Alliance, but those plans were then amended and, so far, only a small fraction of the promised jobs have been created. Last month, the Financial Times revealed the struggle that it had to uncover the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Investment Bank (16 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I apologise to the Presiding Officer and others that, due to unforeseen circumstances, I am not able to be in the chamber with you today or to take interventions. As we know, the creation of a Scottish National Investment Bank, under various guises, was a long time coming. That words have become action is a positive. The creation of the bank earned qualified support across the chamber, and I...

Scottish Parliament: Public Procurement (Ferries) (10 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 8. To ask the Scottish Government what recent changes it has made to its public procurement policies, including as a result of the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee report on its inquiry into construction and procurement of ferry vessels in Scotland. (S6O-00352)

Scottish Parliament: Public Procurement (Ferries) (10 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I would usually thank the cabinet secretary for her answer, but I am slightly disappointed to hear that. She knows that the issues are not only about the waste of millions of pounds of public money; they are examples of communities losing out on vital lifeline services. The problems at Ferguson Marine are on-going, but we also know that Scotland has an ageing ferry fleet that requires not...

Scottish Parliament: National Planning Framework (10 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Thank you, Presiding Officer. I very much enjoyed the minister’s response to Fergus Ewing, and also Fergus Ewing’s deadpan face as he did not receive an answer. Therefore, I ask the minister again: will the A9 and the A96 be dualled in full as planned?

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations 2021 (10 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: How many of the fishermen the cabinet secretary has spoken to have told her that they want to follow the Scottish National Party’s policy of returning to the European Union, and therefore going back into the common fisheries policy, now that we have regained control of our waters?

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations 2021 (10 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Scotland’s fishing industry finds itself at an important point in its history. At the start of this year, the United Kingdom re-established itself as an independent coastal state outside of the European common fisheries policy. That event is the basis for the negotiations that have taken place this year and for the UK’s direct participation in international discussions around the...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (9 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: In the past few days, I spoke to a nurse whose workload is now focused away from their normal duties and solely on providing flu vaccinations and Covid boosters. Although that is obviously extremely important work, as we have heard today, it takes members of staff away from other vital areas of our NHS and risks putting additional pressure on our already under-pressure nursing staff. How many...

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Procurement and Fair Work Practices (2 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Paul Sweeney is part of the small and dwindling group of actual socialists left in the Labour Party. A number of people in his party support a £15-an-hour national living wage. Is he one of them? If so, how would he pay for that?

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Procurement and Fair Work Practices (2 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I clarify that I was asking whether the member’s Labour colleagues support a £15 national living wage across the board and how that would be paid for.

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Procurement and Fair Work Practices (2 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Scotland’s workforce has faced unprecedented challenges in the past 18 months. The nature of work has changed or, more accurately, change that was already taking place has been accelerated. The effects have fallen on employer and employee alike. While businesses were shuttered, employment seemed more precarious. Some businesses stopped trading, while others limped on as their customer base...

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Procurement and Fair Work Practices (2 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The continued issue of late payment, which is something that should be simple to correct in today’s world, remains one such challenge, but it is one that can make the difference between a business succeeding or failing. I give way to Mr Fairlie.

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Procurement and Fair Work Practices (2 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I am sorry if my letting the member intervene surprised him. He tried to intervene on me, so I am surprised by his reaction. The UK Government has supported business and, if the member goes out into communities, he will hear businesses saying how important that UK Government support has been. He will also hear them say how difficult it has been to access some of the Scottish Government...

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Procurement and Fair Work Practices (2 Nov 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The member is trying to deflect the point. How many businesses in his Moray constituency have commented to him about the difficulties that they have had in accessing Scottish Government support and the confusion, lack of clarity and other problems that they face?

Scottish Parliament: World Mental Health Day 2021 (7 Oct 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery Strategy (5 Oct 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The strategy document contains a commitment to regional action and a regional approach to recovery, with a focus on regional economic partnerships. Does the cabinet secretary recognise the different impacts of the pandemic and the recovery on various parts of Scotland—particularly island communities, which have been doubly disadvantaged by the ferries crisis? How will the regional approach...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (30 Sep 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I am sorry, but my app would not load either. I would have voted no.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Vaccination Certification Scheme (29 Sep 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Yesterday, the First Minister accepted what everybody already knew but she had steadfastly refused to accept. Having announced that the vaccination certification scheme policy would begin this week, the Scottish Government was completely unprepared for its implementation. Such an outcome was a long time in the making due to the culmination of a lack of meaningful engagement, the design of a...
