Scottish Parliament: National Health Service 2020 Vision (22 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: I thank my friend and colleague for taking a brief intervention. He talks about Government spend. Does he welcome the additional spend that has been provided to NHS Grampian for the new women’s hospital, the cancer unit and, in the primary care sector, the new medical centres in four areas in Grampian, one of which is in Blackburn in my constituency?

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service 2020 Vision (22 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: Rhoda Grant has used the word “crisis” at least twice. Will she accept that there is not a crisis in the NHS? Often, we are talking about patients taking responsibility for themselves. If we could educate patients more about when to go to A and E, we might not have what she calls a crisis.

Scottish Parliament: Road and Rail Network (Aberdeenshire) (21 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: 6. To ask the Scottish Government what improvements are planned to upgrade the road and rail network in Aberdeenshire. (S4O-03916)

Scottish Parliament: Road and Rail Network (Aberdeenshire) (21 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: I thank the cabinet secretary for that extremely positive answer. Does the cabinet secretary agree that that action is in keeping with the Government’s proposal and strategy for economic growth, that it will provide jobs for the north-east and that it is testament to the Government’s plans to secure employment in the north-east?

Scottish Parliament: Creative Scotland (Meetings) (21 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Claire Baker refers to a continuing inquiry by the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, which is to take evidence from Creative Scotland and Scottish Enterprise next week. It is inappropriate that she raises the subject in the chamber this afternoon.

Scottish Parliament: Protecting Public Services (13 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: The cabinet secretary said in his opening speech that we need public services that are sustainable and fair. I agree that, if we are to continue to provide public services, they need to be sustainable and fair. I agree with Duncan McNeil that we should look at ways in which we can move forward and protect our public services at the point of delivery. No one in the Parliament disagrees that...

Scottish Parliament: Protecting Public Services (13 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: Perhaps Mr Findlay is not aware of the support that the local authority and Stagecoach provide in my rural constituency, so perhaps there are buses so that people can get out of their homes. Free concessionary travel is related to health and wellbeing. It gives people the opportunity to take advantage of a service that they would otherwise have to pay for and, with limited budgets, would...

Scottish Parliament: Electronic Collars ( 8 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: I, too, thank Christine Grahame for bringing the debate to the chamber. Nanette Milne referred to the appropriate use of electronic dog collars, but in my opinion there is no such thing. I know that the jury is out on electronic dog collars, but as far as I am concerned any infliction of pain on an animal is abhorrent and should never happen. There is no need for it to happen: regardless of a...

Scottish Parliament: Electronic Collars ( 8 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: If we are talking about dogs worrying sheep, surely it is the dog owner’s responsibility to ensure that their dog is on a lead. A shock collar is not required.

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas ( 8 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: In his report, Sir Ian Wood, one of the world’s leading experts on the industry, encouraged young people to seek careers in the oil and gas sector. Does the minister agree that they should continue to seek careers in the sector?

Dennis Robertson: 5. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the outcomes of the recent climate change conference in Lima. (S4O-03865)

Scottish Parliament: Lima Climate Change Conference (Outcomes) ( 7 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: I thank the minister for her answer, and I welcome her to what is, I think, her first portfolio question time in the chamber. Scotland leads the way in the international community with its ambitious climate change targets. Can the minister give us some assurance that the Government remains committed to achieving those targets and to setting an example for the rest of the world?

Scottish Parliament: Ebola ( 6 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: Do other health boards have the necessary procedures in place to isolate patients who are considered to be potential Ebola carriers while they are being tested?

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health ( 6 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: I welcome the minister to his new post. I sincerely hope that he and I can have a dialogue about mental health. There is a stigma around mental ill health. It is unfortunate, but the stigma exists and we need to recognise that. The question is how we move forward. Legislation in itself cannot solve the problem, which is about attitudes—including one’s attitude to oneself. If someone has a...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health ( 6 Jan 2015)

Dennis Robertson: Does the minister agree that we need to look at the transition period, when young people are moved from children’s services into adult services? That period could be extended so that, if appropriate, young people could stay within CAMHS rather than moving on to adult services.
