In relation to diplomatic activity, it is of serious concern that not just the Secretary of State for Defence, but—this is very important—Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary, have jeopardised important trade discussions. As we know, the European Union and Japan have signed an agreement on customs, exchange and exports that has just been...

Scottish Parliament: Heritage (Digital Technology) (6 Oct 2011)

Fiona Hyslop: One thing that can be done is to ensure that the United Kingdom Government invests. When I met Jeremy Hunt only a few weeks ago, we discussed the very point of improving broadband access.

We have had meaningful discussions with Jeremy Hunt, Ed Vaizey and Sir Nicholas Shott, as he wrote his report. The UK Government may choose to consult us, but it is not required to do so, and discussions to date have been at the...

Scottish Parliament: Broadcasting (29 Sep 2010)

Fiona Hyslop: ...the past year has been the United Kingdom Government's acceptance that the Scottish ministers should in the future appoint the BBC Trust member for Scotland. In the short term, the appointment of Jeremy Peat's successor is being undertaken as a joint process by the Scottish and United Kingdom Governments.

Fiona Hyslop: ...the UK Government Stuart McMillan's request that there be an open consultation process that has meetings in Scotland.
