Scottish Parliament: Control of Dogs (Scotland) Act 2010 (Post-legislative Scrutiny) (1 Oct 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Although I agree entirely with the member’s point, does she recall that, in the stage 3 debate on the bill, in April 2010, it was reported that the committee did not support the establishment of a database, although it accepted, in section 8 of the bill, that it was proper to put in a provision, should such a database be required at a later date?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: My five years as the climate change minister fundamentally changed my life. When we set a 2050 target, I told colleagues that I hoped to be 104 years old then. I am very grateful that we have brought the target forward by five years—I will be only 99 years old in 2045. In 2030, I hope to be 84. That tells members that this is not about a wrinkly old soul such as me, but about the...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill (25 Sep 2019)

Roseanna Cunningham: We are 10 years on from the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. Stewart Stevenson, who was the minister who took the Climate Change (Scotland) Bill through the Parliament then, has reminded me that stage 3 for that bill took a morning and an afternoon. I hope that members are pleased that stage 3 was considerably slimmer this time round. The 2009 act established Scotland as a world leader in...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (25 Sep 2019)

...Portfolio Questions on Thursday 3 October 2019 for the purpose of considering the UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Bill. That the Parliament agrees that— Jenny Gilruth be appointed to replace Stewart Stevenson as a member of the Justice Sub-committee on Policing; and James Kelly be appointed to replace Daniel Johnson as a member of the Justice Sub-committee on Policing. That the...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (25 Sep 2019)

...Portfolio Questions on Thursday 3 October 2019 for the purpose of considering the UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Bill. That the Parliament agrees that— Jenny Gilruth be appointed to replace Stewart Stevenson as a member of the Justice Sub-committee on Policing; and James Kelly be appointed to replace Daniel Johnson as a member of the Justice Sub-committee on Policing. That the...

Scottish Parliament: Product Recall Database (25 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Presiding Officer, I offer my apologies. I spoke to your colleague about the fact that, when I bid for this slot, I did not realise that decision time would be moved back. The moment I have finished speaking, I have to flee. The subject in hand is a substantial issue. I am trying to work out whether I am one of the 37 per cent of MSPs who register their appliances. The answer is, “Sometimes...

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Earlier, Jackson Carlaw said that our Westminster Parliament will determine what comes next. Is that correct, in light of paragraph 60 of the judgment, which refers to the need to consult the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly? Would any decisions that have been made without the agreement of all the jurisdictions in these islands be invalid, as the judgment has shown previous...

Scottish Parliament: Common Frameworks (24 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: It is a shame that Willie Rennie is temporarily out of the chamber. On 24 May 1916, Herbert Asquith appointed the Welsh wizard, Lloyd George, to solve the problem of home rule in Ireland. That went well. The Liberals might have been on the case for 100 years, but we have not seen very much delivered on it. If my time as a minister 10 years and more ago taught me anything, it was that the...

Scottish Parliament: Citizens Assembly of Scotland (11 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I accept much of what Adam Tomkins has said about drug deaths. I was first involved in difficulties in that area in the early 1960s. Would it be helpful if all those from across the UK who might be able to influence policy and practice on drug deaths were able to sit in one room together, or does it need a citizens assembly to summon such people and bypass the political system? I am not quite...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight (11 Sep 2019)

The Deputy Presiding Officer: You have given us enough places to go to. I call Stewart Stevenson, to be followed by Colin Smyth.

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: The Independent newspaper reports that “some loud bloke who stunk of booze yelling at us” is a description of how number 10 attempted to persuade 21 former Tory MPs to vote for Prime-Minister-in-name-only Johnson’s plans. The New York Times today describes this week as “a sobering week” for the Prime Minister—if only. The cabinet secretary and others have confirmed that the EU has...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (4 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to tackle the climate emergency. (S5O-03468)

Scottish Parliament: European Union Farming Funding (Convergence Funds) (3 Sep 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I welcome the comments from the Conservative members that indicate that the money should come to Scotland. Does the cabinet secretary share my concerns that the decision-making power regarding how it may be distributed might be retained at Westminster? I say that in the light of remarks from the new Secretary of State for Scotland about the UK Government taking control of spending money in...

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (Day 2) (19 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I rise to speak as someone who signed in support of the proposed bill, but who, having heard the evidence, has come to a disappointing conclusion—it is as disappointing for me as it will be for others. Let us start with the fundamental thesis, which is a matter on which we will undoubtedly agree. There is European Union research that says that a human-car collision at 20mph has a 10 per...

Scottish Parliament: Housing Co-operatives (12 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Johann Lamont on securing the debate. Unusually—because these are not words that I often say—I also congratulate James Kelly, who I see is the author of the foreword to the report. The report is excellent, and it is a considerable credit to Parliament that a cross-party group can produce such a substantial contribution to a very important debate. Johann Lamont referred to...

Scottish Parliament: Broadband (Reaching 100 per cent Programme) (11 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the minister aware of the UK Government’s announcement about the universal service provision for broadband, which is for a lower speed than that of the R100 programme? More fundamentally, it is a capped investment whereby the subscriber will have to pay any extra cost above the cap that the UK Government is putting in place. Is such a cap in place for the R100 programme?

Scottish Parliament: South of Scotland Enterprise Bill: Stage 3 (5 Jun 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: The purpose of the products of Helmet Integrated Systems is safety. In other words, the helmets are for protecting people from incidents that happen in the field of war. The 100 people who are employed at Helmet Integrated Systems will be listening carefully to this debate. The idea that the south of Scotland enterprise agency should be denied the opportunity to support that company, and...

Scottish Parliament: ScotRail (Compensation for Delays and Cancellations) (21 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: How many of the new class 385 sets and refurbished high-speed trains that were due to be delivered in December 2018 have not yet been delivered to ScotRail?
