Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill (15 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: This has been a good debate. The new minister has not put a foot wrong, which is more than I can say for myself. Earlier, I said that the opportunity cost per day of a lane closure on the existing bridge was nearly £700 million. It is not quite that much; it is £700,000—still a lot of money. Jackson Carlaw, as convener of the hybrid bill committee, gave an interesting summation, but then...

Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill (15 Dec 2010)

Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill (15 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: I welcome the minister to his new brief. I echo the thanks that have been expressed in the context of the Forth Crossing Bill for the work of Stewart Stevenson. The first cut of the design for the crossing perhaps contained an element of overdesign, which can be an occupational hazard for engineers, and Stewart Stevenson played a particularly beneficial role in stripping away some of the...

Scottish Parliament: Forth Crossing Bill (15 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: In that hypothetical situation, I would say that hindsight is 20:20 vision, but if we do not take a decision today we will be taking an unacceptable gamble with our national infrastructure and therefore with our national economy. I am not aware of another fix for the existing Forth road bridge. I am not aware that the Scottish Government or Transport Scotland has had for consideration...

Scottish Parliament: Severe Weather ( 8 Dec 2010)

Charlie Gordon: We are here because we have just seen the worst gridlock in living memory. Hundreds of drivers spent the night in their vehicles on the M8, hundreds more bus passengers were stranded on the M80 and many others endured a similar grim experience in sub-zero temperatures across Scotland. Meanwhile, the transport minister was on the BBC claiming a "first-class response" and refusing to apologise....

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive Question Time — Education and Lifelong Learning: Free School Meals (25 Nov 2010)

Charlie Gordon: I understand that the provision of free breakfasts in schools counts towards implementation of the Scottish Government's policy. Given the demise perforce of free breakfasts in Glasgow and the likely price increases for school breakfasts and lunches in the city, will the Government give councils such as Glasgow an above-average grant settlement for next year, or will it allow its school meals...
