Scottish Parliament: Adopt a Station (25 Oct 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I thank Christine Grahame for the opportunity to discuss the railways, which is one of my favourite topics. I am a former transport minister and I am president of the Scottish Association for Public Transport, which was founded because of the closure of the Borders railway. I am also honorary vice-president for Railfuture UK. The only thing that I lack in my railway credentials is a railway...

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Supporting Farming and Food Production (5 Oct 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: Given the importance of primary and processed food production in my constituency, I welcome the announcements that the cabinet secretary has made about supporting the food industry. What steps can he take—or can he advise what steps the UK Government is contemplating—to protect those industries’ access to labour from other parts of the EU on which they are critically dependent?

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy Loan Scheme (4 Oct 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on progress that it has made in delivering the national common agricultural policy loan scheme. (S5T-00117)

Scottish Parliament: Hate Crimes against Polish Migrants (4 Oct 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I, too, thank Kenny Gibson for giving us the opportunity to have this debate. When I was a minister in the Scottish Government, I found myself very regularly representing the UK in discussions with Polish ministers. I have never been quite sure why that was the case; perhaps the UK Government simply recognised the natural affinity that we Scots have with many people in Poland. I first became...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: Does the member think that a country in which more than half of its legislators are unelected, appointed for life and undismissable is democratic? I refer, of course, to the House of Lords in the UK.

Scottish Parliament: NHS Staffing (21 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I will start on a note of consensus, with which I hope that everyone agrees. There is not a party or a person in the chamber who would say that we should scrap the NHS and have something different. We are having a debate about how we all wish to improve the performance of the NHS to support the people in our country with a free-at-the-point-of-need health service. That is very much the...

Scottish Parliament: Good Food from Angus (21 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: It is cruel that Graeme Dey has brought to Parliament today the subject of promoting good food from Angus, because today is one of my two no-food days in an attempt to contain the ever-expanding waistline. That is caused entirely by my love of food, much of which is good-quality Scottish food. I am not necessarily pleased with my colleague about that. Graeme Dey omitted, of course, one of the...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (EU Referendum) (20 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member give way?

Scottish Parliament: Eye Health Week (20 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I congratulate Stuart McMillan on his motion, which is allowing us to debate an important subject. Sight is but one of our senses, of course, and they all add to life’s richness. When we hear music it moves us, when we taste food it satisfies us, and when we see light it inspires us. Each sensory perception is extraordinary and each is an instrument of life. However, senses are a great...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: The national interest is clearly expressed as access to all the rights and privileges of being able—without visas, paperwork or costs—to continue to sell into the market and to engage people from across the EU in our industries. In my constituency, in the fish processing industry, it has proved impossible to rely solely on local labour. Factories in my constituency, even after...

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy Payments (13 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: It is a cause of some embarrassment to me as a systems engineer that a computer development problem is at the heart of the problem. It is clear that farmers have experienced pain; the Government has experienced pain to its budget, too. Will the minister ensure that the contractor also shares some of the pain of fixing the IT problem?

Scottish Parliament: Stand Up to Bullying Campaign (6 Sep 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I would be happy to defer to Ms Smith, if you wish, Presiding Officer.

Scottish Parliament: Dairy Production (North East Scotland) (30 Jun 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: 3. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to ensure the sustainable future of dairy production in North East Scotland. (S5O-00083)

Scottish Parliament: Srebrenica Genocide (21st Anniversary) (29 Jun 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: Like others, I t hank Mike Russell for gaining time for this important debate. The subject is very hard. It is difficult to accept that we are talking about something that happened as recently as 21 years ago, which is within the lifetime of all the members who are in the chamber. It is 21 years since the Srebrenica genocide. In the life of the human race, that is hardly a heartbeat—it...

Scottish Parliament: Post-study Work Visas (Rural Communities) (16 Jun 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I, too, congratulate Kate Forbes on obtaining time for the debate. I thank my work placement student for the week—Daisy Collins—who has done the research and written the notes that I will use during my speech. Scotland has been greatly enhanced by the diversity that comes with immigration—people from different nations who have freely chosen to build their lives here. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Policing and Security (16 Jun 2016)

Stewart Stevenson: I draw members’ attention to the fact that I have a close family member who is a police constable. Many incidents that happen in local communities across Scotland could not reasonably be foreseen through intelligence and stem from the actions of a single individual. Is the cabinet secretary satisfied that there are adequate ways in which local commanders can get access to the new...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (15 Jun 2016)

Ivan McKee: ...that I will focus on today. The Scottish Government’s record of working with and supporting the offshore sector and protecting its skills base will be more than adequately covered by my north-east colleagues Gillian Martin and Stewart Stevenson; I will talk about attractiveness and how economies attract international business in an increasingly interconnected world. My experience...
