Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I understand that a number of the smaller boats that fish inshore are worried about the increasing costs of licences. Is the Scottish Government aware of that and is there any way that we can tackle that issue?

Scottish Parliament: Parcel Delivery Charges (6 Dec 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I thank Richard Lochhead for bringing the debate to Parliament . In 1812, my great-great-great-grandfather, David Berry, who had served in the British Royal Navy between 1780 and 1782, required a duplicate copy of his service record so that he could claim his pension from a predecessor to the current Ministry of Defence. That letter cost him £1 and 10 shillings to be delivered. When...

Scottish Parliament: Policing (29 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Does the cabinet secretary agree that the great strength of Police Scotland—and of its predecessors—is its ability to operate as a team within a framework of laws and to grow new senior officers, and to do so without hands-on interference from politicians?

Scottish Parliament: Small Business Saturday 2017 (29 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: First, I thank Ash Denham for the opportunity to talk about small businesses. I was immediately jealous of her access to a sweetie shop. I was six years old before I could go to the sweetie shop without my ration card. [ Laughter .] There are four of us in the Parliament for whom that would be true. As other members do, I use small businesses. On my journey down here this week, I travelled...

Scottish Parliament: Burntisland Fabrications (22 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: BiFab plays a major part in the development of the Beatrice offshore wind farm. Can the cabinet secretary confirm that the agreement is also very welcome for many companies and projects that depend on the continuing existence of BiFab? I can see the Beatrice offshore wind farm at night from my garden, so I am close to it and I know how important it is. Is the approach a key part of ensuring...

Scottish Parliament: Flood Risk (22 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the cabinet secretary aware of the dramatic difference that the new flood protection scheme in Elgin has made? Richard Lochhead’s constituents and my Moray constituents welcome the support that has been given.

Scottish Parliament: Cycling Proficiency Training (16 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Can the minister tell us how per capita spending on active travel in Scotland compares with the spending that prevails elsewhere in the UK?

Scottish Parliament: Incontinence (16 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: In essence, this debate is about the competition and tension between social embarrassment about talking about the functions of our bowels and bladders and the underlying medical urgency that might be associated with dysfunction in that regard. If social embarrassment wins, there is a risk that we delay engagement with the medical assistance and advice that might well be necessary to protect...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (16 Nov 2017)

Kenneth Macintosh: ...Committee; Sandra White be appointed to replace Tom Arthur as a member of the Health and Sport Committee; Ash Denham be appointed to replace Clare Haughey as a member of the Health and Sport Committee; Stewart Stevenson be appointed to replace Emma Harper as a member of the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee; Richard Lochhead be appointed to replace Clare Haughey as a...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Nationals (Post-Brexit Working) (15 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with the United Kingdom Government regarding the future of European Union nationals currently working in Scotland post-Brexit. (S5O-01456)

Scottish Parliament: Seat Belts on School Transport (Scotland) Bill (9 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: As Neil Bibby did, I congratulate Gillian Martin on introducing the bill and getting it to this stage—at which we may now reasonably anticipate that it will be passed later today. It is no small matter to promote a bill. I have taken five bills through Parliament thus far, but none of them was a member’s bill. With a member’s bill, the member has to do much of the work: for...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Payments (8 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on progress with the 2017 basic payment scheme. (S5O-01415)

Scottish Parliament: Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (7 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: The cabinet secretary took us back to the origins of the Forestry Commission in the 1919 bill, but I want to take us 400 years further back because, of course, the product of forestry is a strategic material. When James IV built the Great Michael, with its 10-foot-thick Scottish oak hull, that required that all the trees of Fife be cleared. Also, then, as now, we had to import wood from...

Scottish Parliament: Respect for Shopworkers Week (7 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I thank Daniel Johnson for the opportunity to discuss this subject tonight. He has referred to the bill that he proposes to introduce, and a members’ debate is often a useful way of introducing the subject of a prospective member’s bill to Parliament and to ramp up discussion about it. I shall look with interest at the proposals that he seeks to introduce. I certainly support the...

Scottish Parliament: Greenhouse Gas Emissions (Annual Target 2015) (31 Oct 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the cabinet secretary aware that, on 21 September, Nicaragua signed up to the Paris agreement, meaning that only two countries—Syria and the United States—are not signatories? Will the Government use the Climate Group states and regions approach to work with the states in the United States to mitigate the anti-science effects of the presidency and far too many of that...

Scottish Parliament: Promoting Active Travel (31 Oct 2017)

Mike Rumbles: ...budget in this year’s programme for government is welcome. Boosting the number of people who cycle would be a win-win for Scotland, as the Scottish Government recognised as far back as 2009, when Stewart Stevenson was transport minister. Back then, 1 per cent of all journeys were made by bike. Stewart Stevenson said at the time that the Government’s target was for 10 per cent...

Scottish Parliament: Transport Poverty (26 Oct 2017)

Gillian Martin: Will the cabinet secretary advise on progress in considering reopening a rail link from Dyce to Ellon and perhaps beyond, to the towns of Banff and Buchan, to give my constituents and those of Stewart Stevenson the public transport options that people in many other areas of Scotland enjoy?

Scottish Parliament: Hydro Nation (26 Oct 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I have a question that perhaps one of Mr Cameron’s colleagues can answer in their speech. The first part of the amendment talks about the recovery of phosphoros. I am interested to know whether that is for economic or environmental reasons because, of course, by the time the phosphorus from human waste is in waste water, it is extremely dilute, and I think that the recovery would not be...
