Scottish Parliament: Schools (Full-time Return of Pupils) (24 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what support it will provide to schools in light of its announcement regarding the full-time return of pupils in April. (S5O-05142)

Scottish Parliament: Schools (Full-time Return of Pupils) (24 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Since indicating the return to school, the Scottish Government has taken a less equivocal stance, particularly in relation to secondary pupils. Can the cabinet secretary confirm that he will give a minimum notice period for any changes to scheduled returns after the Easter holidays, to help parents and carers to plan? Further, can he assure local authorities that the additional costs that...

Scottish Parliament: Greensill Capital UK (Administration) (24 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I welcome the cabinet secretary’s commitment to provide updates over the course of the campaign recess. On the Fort William plant, when the plans were changed and announced, the cabinet secretary gave his support and said that support would be given by the Scottish Government. Has the Scottish Government reviewed the business plan for the facility? In its view, are the plans credible? Given...

Scottish Parliament: Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (24 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I was going to ask Emma Harper for a little more clarification about amendment 3, but she has provided that. I thank her and the minister for their constructive approach to my vital clarification in relation to grazing. We will support all the amendments.

Scottish Parliament: Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill (24 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I draw members’ attention to my entry in the register of members’ interests as a partner in a farming business and a member of NFU Scotland. I am pleased, once again, to have the opportunity to speak on the bill at its final stage, and on one of the final items of business of this parliamentary session. It will, I hope, be the seventh member’s bill to pass at stage 3 in this session,...

Scottish Parliament: Gupta Family Group Alliance (Fort William Plant) (11 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Given the seriousness of the situation around GFG Alliance, will the First Minister commit the economy secretary to making a statement to the Parliament next week to update members? The First Minister talked about the securities that the Scottish Government holds. Could she advise whether those securities could lead to the Fort William plant being taken into public ownership?

Scottish Parliament: Tourism Sector (Recovery) (10 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 8. To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has for the long-term recovery of the tourism sector. (S5O-05105)

Scottish Parliament: Tourism Sector (Recovery) (10 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Following the First Minister’s commitment on Tuesday to give indications about the reopening of hospitality and tourism—something for which the sectors have been hoping for weeks—will the cabinet secretary set out the steps that his Government and its agencies will take to market Scotland as a destination for travel from the rest of the United Kingdom, given the importance of visitors...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change Plan (9 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: It seems to be a little unfair to have to follow that, Presiding Officer. I add my best wishes to all those who are retiring from Parliament—especially Stewart Stevenson, after that fantastic speech. When I made my maiden speech, he noted with, I think, some regret that he thought that I had beaten his record for the quickest maiden speech after being sworn in. However, it is always safe to...

Scottish Parliament: A9 and A96 (Dualling) (4 Mar 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: On 10 February, the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity told me in committee that the Scottish Government remained committed to the A9 and A96 projects and the timeframe that had been set out for them. At First Minister’s question time on the same day, the First Minister was more cautious, suggesting that progress would be made “as quickly as possible”. The...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 5) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I remind members of my entry in the register of members’ interests, which notes that I am a partner in a farming business. I recognise that the budget comes at a time when all Governments are facing unprecedented challenges. The period ahead of us will likely be the most unusual and least predictable in the history of this Parliament. However, we should also be conscious that this is a time...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 5) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The Cabinet Secretary for Rural Economy and Tourism made that point, and I made the point back to him that that is a question of choice, given the additional funding that the Scottish Government has received from the UK Government over the past year. The convergence money, which was hard won by the industry and the Scottish Conservatives, has been dipped into to top up the budget for the less...

Scottish Parliament: Prisoner Voting (24 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Yet again, we find ourselves in a situation in which the cabinet secretary is using what I would consider disrespectful language towards a member of this Parliament, who is entitled to make their points, as is the cabinet secretary. Presiding Officer, what is your opinion on whether describing a member as arrogant is acceptable language?

Scottish Parliament: Prisoner Voting (24 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Thank you, Presiding Officer. We meet today ahead of a parliamentary election that will be far from normal. It has already been radically altered by the on-going pandemic and the restrictions on campaigning. However, from a legal perspective, the most pressing difference is that the franchise will be, for the first time in a national election in Scotland, open to convicted prisoners who are...

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (Report) (18 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I join other members in welcoming the work of those who participated in the work of the citizens assembly and in thanking them for their efforts during what has been an especially difficult period. Promoting engagement beyond the walls of Parliament is an important and necessary part of our democracy, and one in which we should all continue to be innovative. An essential driving force behind...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (16 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I am sure that we are all aware of the impact of the restrictions on mental health. People of all ages have been left isolated from their friends, family and support groups. Has any additional support been provided during this lockdown, given that a recent study showed a rise in suicidal thoughts among young people?

Scottish Parliament: Local Authorities (Tourism) (Support) (11 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: It has been some time since the cabinet secretary announced that bed-and-breakfast accommodation and guesthouses that pay council tax rather than business rates will receive support that is equivalent to the strategic framework business fund. That is welcome, but those businesses are already having significant issues with cash flow, as in many cases they received only small sums several...

Scottish Parliament: A9 and A96 (Dualling Completion) (10 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 6. To ask the First Minister when projects to dual the A9 and A96 roads are expected to be completed. (S5F-04809)

Scottish Parliament: A9 and A96 (Dualling Completion) (10 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The pledges to complete work by 2025 and 2030 for the A9 and A96 respectively have been described as “ambitious”. Of the 11 sections of road under the A9 programme, which started in 2011, only one has been completed so far, with only one other even under construction. None of the work on the A96 has started. The projects are vital for communities across my region, for accessibility and...
