Scottish Parliament: Limitation (Childhood Abuse) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Apr 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Like others, I welcome the bill, although I take no pleasure in the fact that we have had to come to a legislative solution to such a problem. Some survivors that we spoke to made the point that not all of them are looking for a court solution and that there are some for whom there is no resolution. The issue is not just about institutional abuse, because the bill covers abuse by individuals...

Scottish Parliament: Points of Order (20 Apr 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I want to raise a point of order under rule 7.3, on respect to other members. Under the circumstances, I will not name the member who has caused me to do this, because the member has already made fulsome and proper apology. However, I want to make clear for the record and for future reference for members that, if a member is to accuse another member of...

Scottish Parliament: Rotary Clubs (Champions of Change Awards) (29 Mar 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I note the requirement for four minutes, Presiding Officer. I will use some of that to congratulate John Lamont on bringing the topic for debate to Parliament. I am grateful for the opportunity to speak about Rotary clubs. I welcome the times when we as a Parliament look to the actions of hard-working Scottish citizens and citizens across the world. In particular tonight, we reflect on the...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (28 Mar 2017)

Lewis Macdonald: ...process. So much for any serious alternative to Britain leaving the single market. So much for the First Minister’s mandate from the Parliament. The SNP’s vaunted commitment to the EU is relegated to second place and cast into doubt. Last week, I asked Stewart Stevenson whether he would be urging fishermen in Banffshire and Buchan Coast to vote to leave the UK in order to...

Scottish Parliament: British Sign Language (Draft National Plan) (23 Mar 2017)

Scottish Parliament: Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal (8 Mar 2017)

Bruce Crawford: ...that has ever been lodged in the Parliament. It is 351 words long—all of them well crafted—and tells the story of Marie Curie well. I have just realised that that made me sound a bit like Stewart Stevenson, and I am getting a bit worried. [ Laughter .] Linda Fabiani told her story and I would like to tell a story of my own about meeting some of the staff and volunteers of Marie...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Impact of Leaving the European Union (28 Feb 2017)

Mairi Evans: ...developing the tool, but the mathematics and algorithms that are involved are far too complex for my brain to comprehend, let alone for me to explain to anyone else. It is something that is probably best left to the likes of Stewart Stevenson.

Scottish Parliament: Endometriosis Awareness Week (28 Feb 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I thank Kenneth Gibson for giving us the opportunity to discuss this topic. Endometriosis is heavily underdiscussed, especially considering the range of people it affects. I am a man in his 70s, and my generation of men did not much engage in or discuss anything to do with female reproduction. Indeed, it was only after my mother’s death that I discovered that a year before I was born...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Sector Co-investment (23 Feb 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I join others in thanking Lewis Macdonald for the opportunity to discuss this important topic. My constituency has the world’s largest offshore oil support base and includes St Fergus gas terminal, so the issues are significant to it. Unemployment there, which has historically been low, has risen significantly because of the downturn in the industry. We are still in a much better place...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (23 Feb 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Will the Tories be voting against the budget tonight and denying businesses across Scotland access to the £44.5 million to which Murdo Fraser just referred? Does he intend to stuff businesses tonight?

Scottish Parliament: Digital Economy Bill (22 Feb 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Business and the Economy (Support) (21 Feb 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I welcome the fact that 972 businesses in Moray and Aberdeenshire will benefit from today’s announcement, adding to the 9,608 premises that will pay no more in rates in the coming year than they did in the past year. In relation to valuation appeals, is the cabinet secretary minded to follow the example of the UK Tory Government, which is making appeals in England more difficult than...

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

Stewart Stevenson: Did the First Minister note that, last night, the Labour Party signed a blank cheque to the Prime Minister to allow her, without further democratic reference, to determine the terms of leaving the European Union? Does she also note that paragraph 8.16 of the UK Government’s white paper says that there should be a “mutually beneficial” solution for the Spaniards and the UK in...

Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Article 50) (7 Feb 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: Was the Scottish Government wrong to publish its compromise views? Can Mr Lamont, for all the meetings that there have been, tell us of a single, however trivial, change that is being made to anything whatsoever that the Prime Minister has proposed, discussed or stated?
