Scottish Parliament: 26th Conference of the Parties (Preparations) (14 Jan 2021)

Stewart Stevenson: 7. To ask the Scottish Government what preparations it is making for its participation in COP26. (S5O-04919)

Scottish Parliament: 26th Conference of the Parties (Preparations) (14 Jan 2021)

Stewart Stevenson: At previous COPs, Scottish ministers have been a formal part of the United Kingdom delegation—indeed, I was, on more than one occasion. Is that expected to be the case at COP26?

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

Stewart Stevenson: On 30 September 1938, Neville Chamberlain came off a plane at Heston airport in London after many days of fog. On 24 December 2020, Boris Johnson, like Neville Chamberlain, waved his bit of paper that represented the most gross and manifest capitulation to the interests of others. Neville Chamberlain at least was cheered along the Mall when he went to brief the monarch, although it did not...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Loneliness and Social Isolation) (23 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Rachael Hamilton on securing the debate and giving me the opportunity to talk about this important subject. Today, as it did yesterday and will do for the days to come, Covid-19 erodes the human spirit and hard times are here for us all. The burden is physical, mental and, for many, spiritual; and the weight continues to bear down on us all. It is hard to accept—it is not...

Scottish Parliament: Banffshire and Buchan Coast (Action on Poverty) (23 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking in the Banffshire and Buchan Coast constituency to help take families out of poverty. (S5O-04889)

Scottish Parliament: Banffshire and Buchan Coast (Action on Poverty) (23 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: Parts of my constituency are in particular poverty. Will the cabinet secretary advise how many families in my constituency—or, if necessary, in Aberdeenshire—are expected to receive the Scottish child payment?

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Negotiations (Update) (15 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the United Kingdom Government’s Brexit negotiations and their potential impact on Scotland. (S5T-02593)

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Negotiations (Update) (15 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: Like the cabinet secretary, I am appalled that, since 1 December, the Scottish ministers have not been engaged in the endgame of a very difficult set of negotiations—they were made difficult by the Tory Government. I understand that agreement on participation in the Erasmus+ scheme post-Brexit has failed to be reached. Can the cabinet secretary tell us about the prospective impact on...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Negotiations (Update) (15 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: In 1931, my mother was the beneficiary of a scheme that took her to study in France. It looks as though today’s generation will not be as fortunate as my mother was, 90 years ago. With only a few days to go before the end of the transition period, we are being left in the dark. Does the cabinet secretary share my concern about the serious effect that that will have on students’ and...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Recovery (Funding Support) ( 3 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what its latest engagement has been with the United Kingdom Government regarding the funding provided to support the economic recovery from Covid-19. (S5O-04818)

Scottish Parliament: Economic Recovery (Funding Support) ( 3 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: Many countries, including France, Germany and New Zealand, have introduced substantial economic stimulus packages in response to Covid. The cabinet secretary has just described the UK Government’s response. Has the UK Government articulated an argument to show that its response will help us, or will it do otherwise?

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Support for Young People ( 1 Dec 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: Although I understand exactly what the member is saying, and I do not rebut it, does he accept that being in mental ill health does not prevent someone from being able to engage positively with what happens to them?

Scottish Parliament: Tied Pubs (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: I express my empathy for the bill’s principles. My grandfather will be spinning in his grave at a high rate of knots because he was a member of the Independent Order of Rechabites, which a long time ago was a home for people who were teetotallers and campaigned against the evils of drink. However, I have significant issues with the way in which the bill is drafted. I have come to it...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Support for Further and Higher Education Students) (25 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what financial and mental health support has been made available to students in further and higher education who have been negatively impacted by Covid-19. (S5O-04788)

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (Support for Further and Higher Education Students) (25 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: I thank the Scottish Government for the support that the minister has just delineated. What discussions has he had with the university and college sector about the provision of support to students, particularly those from low-income backgrounds? The minister referred to the digital inclusion initiative. How helpful has the initiative been to that part of the student community? Is there access...

Scottish Parliament: Legal Advice (Publication) (25 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: I start by agreeing with Murdo Fraser when he sympathised with the complainers, which was entirely proper. Let us look at precedents in relation to the disclosure of legal advice. It is worth saying that these precedents all stem from a period when Jackie Baillie sat in the Government and Alex Cole-Hamilton’s colleagues sat beside her. Answer number 1 was to Alex Neil: “The Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus (Scotland’s Strategic Approach) (19 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: The pandemic continues to blight our planet and test our endurance as weeks have turned into months. As someone with a higher potential vulnerability by reason of age, I express my gratitude to the public, both personally and as a representative of a community of people who are vulnerable for a variety of reasons. The pandemic has always been a public health emergency. The huge majority of...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government Climate Change Champion (12 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: The United Nations brings its climate change conference to Glasgow next year. Does it not undermine prospects for its success that Boris Johnson has appointed as his Government’s climate change champion a pro-fracking Tory member of Parliament who has campaigned against wind farms?

Scottish Parliament: Pre-release Access to Official Statistics (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (12 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: I will immediately respond to one part of Jackie Baillie’s contribution. There is no “secrecy” about any of the statistics that are part of this debate. The issue is merely who gets access and when. All the statistics are published. Is it a question of best practice to remove pre-release access to statistics? If so, why does it not apply to all four types of economic stats that are...

Scottish Parliament: Remembrance Commemorations (10 Nov 2020)

Stewart Stevenson: It is a privilege to be here and to speak in a debate of this kind. That privilege is, of course, entirely due to the sacrifices of hundreds of thousands of people who have gone before us to protect our freedom. One of my hobbies is researching my family tree. I have been doing so for more than 50 years, so I am able to say that I have 38 relatives in my family tree who died in various...
