Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 5) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: Is the member aware that 28 of the 42 stores in Glasgow city centre that could be affected by the tax are not supermarkets or out of town? Does he agree, therefore, that calling it a supermarket tax is a misnomer? [Interruption.]

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 5) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: I repeat my point that 28 of the 42 stores in Glasgow city centre that would be affected by the cabinet secretary’s proposed tax are not supermarkets. Why does the cabinet secretary persist in calling them supermarkets?

Scottish Parliament: A9 Dualling (Timetable) (20 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: I congratulate Murdo Fraser on securing the debate. I will stick with the traditional tone of members’ business debates. I think that a more sombre tone is appropriate in this particular debate; we have sitting in the public gallery bereaved families who have been affected by the A9. The A9 is one of Scotland’s most important transport arteries. As we have already heard from other...

Scottish Parliament: A9 Dualling (Timetable) (20 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: It is an interesting idea. I hope that the Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change Committee will look at it soon, within the ambit of one of its inquiries. I take the opportunity to congratulate Mr Stewart on the award that he received last evening in London. The road safety charity Brake named him parliamentarian of the year for his work on road safety. In some respects, the debate...

Scottish Parliament: A9 Dualling (Timetable) (20 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: I am grateful for that intervention because it has been given in the spirit in which I proposed what I proposed to the Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change Committee. I am here to help solve problems if I can. I am running short of time. I want to make the point that, as well as the safety issues, there is the economic case to consider—and it is not just about reducing the...

Scottish Parliament: Freight Facilities Grants (13 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: I congratulate my colleague Cathy Jamieson on bringing to the chamber a debate that is at once important and very topical. At the December 7 meeting of the Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change Committee, I pressed the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Sustainable Growth, John Swinney, on the proposal in next year's draft budget to close the freight facilities grant to new...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive Question Time — Health and Wellbeing: Patient Transport Service (Hospital Appointments) (13 Jan 2011)

Charlie Gordon: A constituent of mine, a cancer out-patient who is nearly past the optimum time window for his effective treatment, has twice had his vehicle turn up on the wrong day and it has twice turned up with inadequate staff and equipment to cope with the fact that he resides in a tenement flat. No fault is attributed to front-line ambulance staff, but it appears that there is some bureaucratic...

Charlie Gordon: I congratulate the Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change Committee on the thoroughness of its inquiry into "Low Carbon Scotland: The Draft Report on Proposals and Policies"—which from here on in, like the minister, I will refer to as the RPP—and on the clarity of its report. Labour endorses the committee's report and the report of the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, which...

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (16 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: For the avoidance of doubt, I remind members that I placed on record yesterday my tribute to Stewart Stevenson and my welcome of Keith Brown to his new brief. This has been an important debate that I have found very useful. Winter maintenance is not something that we debate often, but it is something that I think about a lot. That has been the case since the six years in the 1990s when I had...

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (16 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: That is a welcome intervention. Any budget for winter maintenance is an estimate at best, but we do not stop when we run out of money—we carry on to help people and sort out the financial implications later. That is in the nature of this area of public policy implementation, so I welcome the intervention. With this year's derogation from driver hours regulations for gritter drivers and...

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (16 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: Keep going—I was off school that day.

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (16 Dec 2010)

Paragraph 8.1 of the winter maintenance plan for the south-west sector in relation to snow and ice states: "Ploughing of snow will normally commence at a snow depth of 30mm"— which is 3cm— "and will be accompanied by salt applications." The cabinet secretary has told the chamber that the predicted snowfall...
