Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (9 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: What discussions has the Government had on the potential impact of the increased restrictions on Scotland’s regional and local airports—including many across my region—and the airlines that maintain lifeline links with some of the most remote communities?

Scottish Parliament: Green Recovery Inquiry (9 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I remind members of my entry in the register of members’ interests, as I am a partner in a farming business. I start by welcoming the consensus around the chamber for an economic recovery that does not jeopardise progress toward positive environmental outcomes. The position in which we find ourselves is unprecedented. Large parts of our economy have been shut down and considerable...

Scottish Parliament: Heart Disease Improvement Plan (4 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 2. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a detailed timeline for the publication of the successor plan to the 2014 heart disease improvement plan. (S5O-04970)

Scottish Parliament: Heart Disease Improvement Plan (4 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Around 68,000 people across my Highlands and Islands region are living with heart and circulatory disease. It is a major health issue for many and one that I have raised with ministers previously. I welcome the recent publication of the British Heart Foundation’s draft strategy, which has been developed in partnership with clinical and patient communities. I was surprised to note that the...

Scottish Parliament: Vaccination Programme (3 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I have been contacted by a constituent from my Highlands and Islands region who, instead of being offered the vaccine at the local general practitioner surgery in Keith, has been told to travel to Dufftown over dangerous and snowy roads. I have a constituent in their late 90s who, until his family contacted the national health service, had no news of his vaccination date and, as of Monday...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (3 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Given that businesses are still adjusting to leaving the EU, that we have the serious economic challenges of Covid still to face and that people’s jobs and livelihoods are at risk, can Michael Russell tell us which, if any, business organisations, trade bodies or industry groups agree with him that the nationalist obsession with another divisive independence referendum is the answer?

Scottish Parliament: Construction and Procurement of Ferry Vessels (2 Feb 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The debate comes at an important time, following the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee’s report. I thank the committee’s members and clerks and the convener, my colleague Edward Mountain, for a clear and comprehensive examination of the subject. As a new member of the committee, I did not participate in the work that has taken place over the past year. However, as an islander, I am...

Scottish Parliament: Prioritising Covid-19 Vaccination and Economic Recovery (27 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Will the minister take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Vision for Trade (26 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Although the minister claims that the EU is our closest and largest international export market, the rest of the UK is Scotland’s largest market for trade—it is the destination for more than 60 per cent of our exports. Why do he and the SNP continue to push for breaking up the UK, which would put up barriers with our largest market, thus risking jobs and livelihoods? Does he accept that...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (Impact of European Union Exit) (21 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I thank the cabinet secretary for advance sight of his statement. I remind members of my entry in the register of members’ interests, and as a partner in a farming business, I know that many farmers will laugh at the Scottish National Party lecturing others about IT failures when it is responsible for perhaps the biggest IT disaster in the history of farm payments, the effects of which are...

Scottish Parliament: Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (21 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I remind members about my entry in the register of members’ interests as a partner in a farming business. I am also a member of NFU Scotland. I congratulate Emma Harper on bringing the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill to the chamber. I share her interest in the subject. We both represent predominantly rural regions and we know all too well that livestock worrying...

Scottish Parliament: Fishing Communities (Compensation) (19 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The UK Government has taken responsibility for its share of the problem that the sector has faced over the past few weeks and has stepped up with a £23 million compensation fund. It is clear that the Scottish Government was not prepared for the end of the transition period. Can the cabinet secretary state unequivocally whether the delays that were caused by Food Standards Scotland—an...

Scottish Parliament: Managing Scotland’s Fisheries (14 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I thank the cabinet secretary for advance sight of his statement. Despite his claims that he and his Government will do all that they can to defend the devolved fisheries powers, the simple truth is that he and the Scottish National Party would hand those powers back to Brussels and have Scotland’s fishermen back in the common fisheries policy just as soon as they could. It is clear that...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (4 Jan 2021)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I welcome the news that parts of the Highlands and Islands region that are currently in level 3 will remain there. However, that also means that businesses in some areas, particularly those in the tourism sector, will be legally, although not practicably, able to remain open and will therefore be denied access to the full range of business support that is available. Does the First Minister...

Scottish Parliament: Trade and Co-operation Agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union (30 Dec 2020)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: I remind members of my registered interests as a partner in a farming business and a member of a number of agricultural bodies. Across the country, there was an audible sigh of relief when news hit that a trade deal between the UK and EU seemed to have been reached, just two days out from Christmas. As that news first dropped, Michael Russell was lecturing the Parliament on the dangers of no...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Additional Support) (23 Dec 2020)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what additional support the NHS will require over the first quarter of 2021. (S5O-04883)

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Additional Support) (23 Dec 2020)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: The attention of many in the national health service is, understandably, focused on the coronavirus pandemic and the efforts to protect communities across Scotland. However, as is usual at this time of year, the routine work of the health service will also be affected by seasonal issues, and increased pressure will be put on local services and health staff. What concerns does the cabinet...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (23 Dec 2020)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: Scotland’s important fishing industry is looking forward to the United Kingdom becoming an independent coastal state and regaining control of our waters. However, although the cabinet secretary’s party’s former leader, Alex Salmond, used to believe that it was “imperative that we remove the dead hand of Brussels mismanagement as soon as possible” from our fishing sector, is it not...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (23 Dec 2020)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: That is misleading and the cabinet secretary knows it.
