Scottish Parliament: Peatlands ( 4 Nov 2010)

Peter Peacock: I will make a brief speech. I am pleased to support the motion that Rob Gibson has lodged and the strong case that he has made. I apologise, Presiding Officer, for having to leave probably before the minister completes her summing up. I first became aware of peat bogs when, as a school pupil, I took core samples, which Bill Wilson described, from peat bogs in the lake district in the late...

Scottish Parliament: RAF Kinloss and RAF Lossiemouth ( 3 Nov 2010)

Peter Peacock: I will be comparatively brief. I very much welcome the fact that Dave Stewart has brought this motion for debate and I welcome the support from all parties in the chamber on the issues that Moray faces. Dave Stewart's motion captures adequately the scale of the problem that will be visited on Moray and the challenge that that community will face in coming years. I first became fully aware of...

Scottish Parliament: Support for Business (28 Oct 2010)

Peter Peacock: I have had the joy of interacting with rating revaluations over more years than I care to remember. I was once a regional council finance convener when councils set both business and domestic rates. I was the convener of a valuation committee for a period of time and I even sat on the Scottish Valuation Advisory Council, for my sins, which was one of the high points of my 30 years in public...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Forestry: Forestry (25 Oct 2010)

Peter Peacock: To ask the Scottish Executive how many forest crofts have been created since 2007.

Scottish Parliament: BBC Alba ( 6 Oct 2010)

Peter Peacock: I will be very brief. I strongly support Ted Brocklebank's motion. He has been a long-standing and distinguished supporter of Gaelic, and in the broadcasting world he was instrumental in helping to develop the notion that we ought to have much more television coverage in Gaelic. As Ted Brocklebank rightly said, BBC Alba has been successful in its first two years. It has built on everything...

Scottish Parliament: Broadcasting: "The recommendations of the Commission on Scottish Devolution regarding Scottish Parliament procedures" (29 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: Does Robin Harper recognise the counterpoint to that, which is that it would place the Presiding Officer in the difficult and potentially invidious position of having to interpret whether an amendment has raised a new and sufficiently significant issue? The committee seeks to avoid leaving him in that position.

Scottish Parliament: Broadcasting: "The recommendations of the Commission on Scottish Devolution regarding Scottish Parliament procedures" (29 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: I am grateful to Nicol Stephen for setting the context for my much more mundane, practical comments about the detail of the committee's report. As Nicol suggested, the report deals with the much less glamorous aspects of the Calman commission's work. It is not about extending powers, which is the bit that excites so many people and opinions in our country. The UK Government is now dealing...

Scottish Parliament: Broadcasting: "The recommendations of the Commission on Scottish Devolution regarding Scottish Parliament procedures" (29 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: I accept that there are not institutional arrangements, but my thesis is that, provided that there is good will, relationships will be formed in any circumstance that demands them. It is not necessary to have an apparatus that allows that to happen. In recent times, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury and the Secretary of State for Scotland have come to the Scottish Parliament. In its report,...

Scottish Parliament: Low-carbon Economy (23 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: In naming places that have the potential to supply the industry to which the minister refers, would the minister like to say anything about the Cromarty Firth?

Scottish Parliament: Forensic Science Services (23 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: As my time is limited, I move straight to the remarks that the cabinet secretary made about Northern Constabulary—I speak from its perspective and that of west Grampian—and the fact that it should not be concerned about a move of services from Aberdeen to Dundee, as Dundee is not much more distant than Aberdeen. The point that comes out the most is that the current arrangements work...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Renewable Energy: Renewable Energy (23 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: To ask the Scottish Executive whether it plans to incentivise individuals to invest in non fossil fuel dependent heating systems.

Scottish Parliament written answers — Fisheries: Fisheries (17 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S3W-34479 by Richard Lochhead on 28 June 2010, whether it considers that the protected geographical indication regulation on Scottish farmed salmon must be read with and comply with the fundamental regulation, Council Regulation (EC) No 510/2006, and, if so, whether it will clarify the steps that it is taking to remove the...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Fisheries: Fisheries (17 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S3W-34479 by Richard Lochhead on 28 June 2010, whether it considers that, since the qualifying activity for the Scottish farmed salmon protected geographical indication (PGI) is the production of fresh fish, every stage of such PGI salmon production from parent fish to slaughter is required to be done in a designated area as per...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Fisheries: Fisheries (17 Sep 2010)

Peter Peacock: To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S3W-34479 by Richard Lochhead on 28 June 2010, whether it considers the protected geographical indication regulation on Scottish farmed salmon to cover only the seawater phase of salmon production and not the freshwater phase.
