Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (Day 2) (10 Oct 2019)

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill (10 Oct 2019)

Colin Smyth: ...have closed a potential loophole in the ban by making it easier to adjust if required. The failure of the SNP and the Tories to support my amendment to close a loophole that still allows parking in cycle lanes has rightly been described by Cycling UK in Scotland as “a squandered opportunity”.

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (9 Oct 2019)

Mr Mark Ruskell: I thank Colin Smyth for giving way and I thank him for lodging amendment 160, which is similar to an amendment that I lodged at stage 2. It is hugely important that we ensure that cycle lanes are safe and that we remove the danger of parked cars from cycle lanes. I know, from going out cycling with my children, that parked cars are a major hazard, which force cyclists to move around them,...

Government Plan for Net Zero Emissions — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Oct 2019)

Alex Chalk: ...inoffensive and off the shelf is, of course, the tree. Let us therefore take the opportunity to plant trees and lean into our targets. The hon.

In the 1970s a decision was taken to reverse that—there is...
