Scottish Parliament: Scope Capacity (12 Dec 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making in meeting the target in its cancer strategy to increase national health service scope capacity by an additional 2,000 per annum on a sustainable basis. (S5O-02669)

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (11 Dec 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I did a quick sum before the debate: I think that this is my 11th or 12th speech on fisheries negotiations since becoming a member. Each year’s negotiations have their own individual tempo and issues. The enduring feature is that the fishermen’s representatives, whether the SFF, the Scottish White Fish Producers Association or others, do not support any political party. In fact, they want...

Scottish Parliament: Ultrasound Scanner (60th Anniversary) (11 Dec 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: As members know, I often speak about my own experiences and people in my family. My father, too, invented something for understanding what was going on in the womb. Being a general practitioner, he had an aluminium ear trumpet thing that he could use to listen to what was going on. His patients found it terribly cold and uncomfortable on their bellies, so my father, with his whittling knife...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration (5 Dec 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: There was nothing unreasonable about fishermen who voted to leave the common fisheries policy in 2016. When I came here in 2001, the EU was halving the number of Scottish fishing boats, while simultaneously funding Spaniards to expand their fleet with our money. We now see a rise in the amount of foreign vessels’ catches in our water. They make up a huge proportion—more than half. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Cairngorm Mountain Ltd (4 Dec 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Is the cabinet secretary aware that the success of winter sports in the Cairngorms and elsewhere in Scotland depends on people travelling significant distances? They will only do so if there is a certainty of snow. I find that there is some irony in making a plea for additional snow on the Cairn Gorm and elsewhere. Will the cabinet secretary make sure that the prospective customers are aware...

Scottish Parliament: Veterans (4 Dec 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I was pleased in this session of Parliament to respond positively to an invitation to become a member of the Highland Reserve Forces and Cadets Association, which means that I have that limited connection with many former servicemen. Of course, for most servicemen, the transition to civilian life from active duty largely goes without event. My best man served for several decades in the Army....

Scottish Parliament: Personal Independence Payment and Disability Living Allowance (Delivery) (29 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Can the cabinet secretary confirm that the Scottish National Party Government will maintain disability benefits, not cut them; ensure that they remain universal, not means tested; and reform the disability assessment process to ensure that it works for service users and that disability assessments will be carried out by the public sector in Social Security Scotland?

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (29 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: The experience of one homeless person, whom I regularly see on a pavement in Edinburgh, might inform the debate. He and others are exposed to dangers that we would not think of; a traffic accident took place and a vehicle left the road, giving him three cracked ribs when it hit him. Are we not all working together to avoid exactly that kind of experience and to avoid people being exposed to...

Scottish Parliament: Bank of Scotland (Branch Closures) (28 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: This is one of those occasions when I feel grateful that I am more than a sword’s length from any of my colleagues in the chamber, as I declare that I am a shareholder in the Bank of Scotland—of course, as a result of my 30 years of employment, which ceased nearly 20 years ago. I start with a few facts about what is going on. The Scottish Parliament information centre tells us that a...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Crown Estate Bill: Stage 3 (21 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I think that the member will recall that I previously raised the issue of the sea between Bute and Arran. The distance between the two islands, which are in different local authority areas, is less than 24 miles. The amendments in the group that we are discussing are constructed in such a way that it would be impossible for the two councils to get out to 12 miles without overlap. Has the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Crown Estate Bill (21 Nov 2018)

John Scott: ...that significant announcements on, and alterations to, a bill can be considered and acted on by committees, Government and Parliament, without any formal evidence being heard by a bill committee. Stewart Stevenson highlighted that point.

Scottish Parliament: Digital Industries (20 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Will the member take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Offshore Wind Week 2018 (20 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I start by declaring that I am a shareholder in SSE and in the Boyndie Wind Farm Co-op, which is a wind farm close to where I stay. This is an excellent opportunity—thanks to Lewis Macdonald—to celebrate offshore wind week 2018 and the contribution that offshore wind makes to our economy, employment in local communities and of course the climate change agenda. It was only a couple of...

Scottish Parliament: Proposed European Union Withdrawal Agreement (15 Nov 2018)

.... I allowed the statement to move on, so I have to suggest to the members who will speak in the open debate that they trim their speeches from six to five minutes—that includes Brice Crawford, Stewart Stevenson, Emma Harper, John Mason, Liz Smith, Tom Mason and Iain Gray. I apologise that we have to do that, but there was a healthy political interest in the previous subject.

Scottish Parliament: Physical Activity, Diet and Healthy Weight (15 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: I very much welcome the fact that Philip Sim is watching the debate, because I know how much he enjoys my contributions. I say to Bruce Crawford that, in 1945, the ration for cheese was 2 ounces a week, so there would be little prospect of having macaroni cheese very often. Indeed, research that was done in 1939, at the beginning of the war, showed that one could live and thrive on 1 pound of...

Scottish Parliament: Age of Criminal Responsibility (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Nov 2018)

Christine Grahame: This is probably a hostage to fortune: I advise members that there is time in hand to be more expansive in your contributions. Oh dear, I may regret that. I call Stewart Stevenson, to be followed by Angus MacDonald.

Scottish Parliament: Care Homes (South Lanarkshire) (8 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Nonsense.

Scottish Parliament: Point of Order (8 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. In today’s member’s business debate at 2.30 pm, there was considerable opprobrium and repeated comments about the absence of two Government ministers in responding to the debate. If it were the case that the members who made those comments were aware of section 7 of the ministerial code, which governs the participation of ministers in matters that...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Budget (Impact) (7 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: 15. To ask the Scottish Government what analysis it has carried out of the impact of the proposals in the United Kingdom budget on the lowest fifth of households in Scotland, in light of the comment by the Resolution Foundation that it will “overwhelmingly benefit richer households”. (S5O-02523)

Scottish Parliament: FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System (1 Nov 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: 4. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the Scottish health technologies group’s advice statement regarding the use of the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system. (S5O-02502)
