Scottish Parliament: Caledonian Sleeper Service (18 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Does customer feedback on the new sleeper rolling stock indicate that the service will continue to be an important contributor to our tourism industry once we have put the current difficulties behind us?

Scottish Parliament: Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I rise to speak as someone who signed in support of the proposed bill, but who, having heard the evidence, has come to a disappointing conclusion—it is as disappointing for me as it will be for others. Let us start with the fundamental thesis, which is a matter on which we will undoubtedly agree. There is European Union research that says that a human-car collision at 20mph has a 10 per...

Scottish Parliament: Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Paragraph 140 of the committee’s report notes that the committee heard that “21 per cent of local authorities have ... identified the roads that they would wish to switch to a 20mph limit and those on which they would retain a 30mph limit. Another 29 per cent say that they have the asset data to allow roads to be identified.”—[ Official Report , Rural Economy and Connectivity...

Scottish Parliament: Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I was just about to come to that. It is a perfectly proper question that I should be asked, given my starting and ending points in the debate. It is also worth saying, in the interests of balance, that political colleagues who will speak from the SNP benches will give different views of the subject. Ultimately, I was driven by the evidence to the conclusion that the bill is not the most...

Scottish Parliament: Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I am sorry; I wanted to be helpful to Mr Ruskell. Equally, many A or B roads go through many towns or villages and it would be appropriate to consider them for a 20mph limit. The bill is a worthy attempt to address the issue, but it falls short in terms of capability of implementation and cost of implementation. I went through a little village close to me recently, and I counted that it would...

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Housing Co-operatives (12 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Johann Lamont on securing the debate. Unusually—because these are not words that I often say—I also congratulate James Kelly, who I see is the author of the foreword to the report. The report is excellent, and it is a considerable credit to Parliament that a cross-party group can produce such a substantial contribution to a very important debate. Johann Lamont referred to...

Scottish Parliament: Broadband (Reaching 100 per cent Programme) (11 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the minister aware of the UK Government’s announcement about the universal service provision for broadband, which is for a lower speed than that of the R100 programme? More fundamentally, it is a capped investment whereby the subscriber will have to pay any extra cost above the cap that the UK Government is putting in place. Is such a cap in place for the R100 programme?

Scottish Parliament: South of Scotland Enterprise Bill: Stage 3 ( 5 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: The purpose of the products of Helmet Integrated Systems is safety. In other words, the helmets are for protecting people from incidents that happen in the field of war. The 100 people who are employed at Helmet Integrated Systems will be listening carefully to this debate. The idea that the south of Scotland enterprise agency should be denied the opportunity to support that company, and...

Scottish Parliament: South of Scotland Enterprise Bill: Stage 3 ( 5 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: One of the great problems that youngsters face when they leave the education system is getting their first job. When I was a graduate with a humble degree, I had three job offers. That ain’t the case now: I have family members, better qualified than me, for whom it has taken three years to get a proper job. We need to ensure that we do not create barriers, in the minds of applicants and in...

Scottish Parliament: ScotRail (Compensation for Delays and Cancellations) (21 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: How many of the new class 385 sets and refurbished high-speed trains that were due to be delivered in December 2018 have not yet been delivered to ScotRail?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Immigration Discussions) (21 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with the United Kingdom Government regarding the impact that Brexit could have on immigration to Scotland. (S5O-03258)

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Immigration Discussions) (21 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I do not often join with the Confederation of British Industry, but I do so in criticism of the plans for the immigration system in Scotland. Particularly in respect of people coming to Scotland to work and to contribute economically—in fishing in my constituency, in farming elsewhere, and throughout our economy—is not it important that we have devolved powers so that we can fine tune...

Scottish Parliament: Menopause (21 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I will say just a quick word to Monica Lennon. I have sat around the boardroom table at the Bank of England on a number of occasions. Of course, I left banking after 30 years to come into politics to improve my reputation. I will also make a little point about something that Elaine Smith perhaps illustrated, on the topic of the advice that we all sometimes receive about things. The last thing...

Scottish Parliament: Menopause (21 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Forgive me, but I do not have time to give way. We will meet premenopausal and perimenopausal women who are worried about how we men might react to menopausal symptoms. We have a duty to be part of an environment in which women feel comfortable about the menopause, because it will happen to all our female friends and relatives and to others we meet. Men need to learn to deal with their...
