Scottish Parliament: Points of Order (18 Apr 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. In considering the previous point of order, will you also give thought to the fact that members’ bills, committee bills and private bills, which are essential parts of this Parliament’s proceedings, are not routinely shared with the UK Government in advance of their publication? It may well be that, in his statement to the Westminster...

Scottish Parliament: Historical Sexual Offences (Pardons and Disregards) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (18 Apr 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I am delighted to join the unanimous support in the chamber for the Historical Sexual Offences (Pardons and Disregards) (Scotland) Bill. I have come to it comparatively late, and my starting point, as it often is, is that I have read the bill. I want to make one or two observations that I hope will be seen as seeking to improve it. Section 5 is entitled “Application to have conviction...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Tayside (17 Apr 2018)

Does she agree that moving the chief executive from NHS Grampian to Tayside should provide the reassurance that staff and patients need that the serious issue is being taken seriously?

Scottish Parliament: Air Quality (17 Apr 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: My sole contribution to the committee’s report was to join the committee in time to get my name and photograph in it. Otherwise, my contribution to the report was entirely nil. I therefore thank all those who preceded me on the committee for the hard work that they have done. They missed a typo in paragraph 50, which has been cut and pasted into the executive summary, but let us not...

Scottish Parliament: Aberdeen Trades Union Council (17 Apr 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Lewis Macdonald on giving us the opportunity to celebrate an important milestone not only for Aberdeen Trades Union Council, but for the whole of north-east Scotland. It is as well to remember what the world looked like in 1868.

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Through the chair, I will say a couple of words to Andy Wightman, who gave us a 40-year horizon since housing associations came into play. “The Digest of Justinian” covered the co-operative housing associations in ancient Rome, and Babylon had co-operative models 2,500 years ago, so Scotland has come to the party quite late. Members might reasonably ask why I am speaking in the...

Scottish Parliament: Cancer Awareness for Young People (27 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: As others have done, I thank Rona Mackay for the opportunity to discuss such an important subject. As we have started to eliminate many infectious diseases over a long period of time, our focus has moved to cancer. Cancer is, mostly, an adult condition, and it is not, of course, a single condition. However, there are very particular issues around cancers in the young. They tend to be...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Negotiations (Fishing) (22 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the First Minister aware of the very real anger among fishermen, fishing communities and people right across Scotland that, after being promised last week by Ruth Davidson that the common fisheries policy would not apply once we left the European Union, we find that we have surrendered at UK level and that in 2020, the CFP will apply without the UK, fishermen or authorities having any say...

Scottish Parliament: Major Infrastructure Projects (22 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: In the nearly 60 years that elapsed between 1948—to which the cabinet secretary referred—and the SNP’s coming into Government in 2007, Labour and the Tories were in government for roughly half the time each, and, indeed, the Liberals were part of the Government in Scotland until 2007. At any point in those nearly 60 years, were any road orders brought forward by those...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill (13 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Does that mean that Mr Tomkins will not be pursuing amendments 150 and 151? Amendment 150 means that, in a protected field, we would require the consent of a minister of the Crown—in other words, elsewhere—and amendment 151 would re-reserve to Westminster agriculture, environmental protection, fisheries, public procurement and state aid. That seems at odds with what Mr Tomkins has...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Police Authority (8 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Given the impending appointment of five new board members, what input has the SPA’s new chair Susan Deacon had in setting in that agenda, ensuring that the job descriptions are proper and getting a fully effective board?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction) (6 Mar 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I thank the Scottish Government for the support that it has given to the Acorn project in my constituency. It is one of a series of initiatives that underpin Scotland’s international reputation. How are other countries catching up with us? How are they using our example in their own domains? In particular, I am thinking of nations such as Sweden.
