Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (9 Feb 2017)

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future Relationship with Europe (17 Jan 2017)

Scottish Parliament: International Development (11 Jan 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: This debate is founded on principle. Page 17 of the document to which we are speaking today captures some of that principle when it says: “Our approach to international development is one of working in ‘partnerships of equals’ with others, both within Scotland and with our partner countries.” That relates to a very important point. This is not about what we do to...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Targets (14 Dec 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: Presiding Officer, I wish you a happy birthday—it is always as well to get credit with the Presiding Officers; it is one of the rules in this place—and I thank Maree Todd for securing the debate. I found myself agreeing with every word that Maurice Golden said in what was a very worthwhile contribution. In the light of that agreement, I gently encourage him and his Conservative...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: Peter Chapman and I were both at the North East Scotland Fisheries Development Partnership meeting, and I think that there was broad agreement in the room that the red line in all negotiations should be that no decisions about foreign access to new fishing opportunities should precede our getting control of them. Does the member agree with that position?
