Scottish Parliament: European Union (Enlargement) (21 Apr 2004)

Keith Raffan: lessons from the Tories on referendums. They did not have one on Maastricht and they have only converted to the idea as a political ploy; they are currently full of political ploys, whether on tuition fees or on Europe. Mr Gallie should get off his self-righteous podium and remember the past. He took nearly half of his speech just to list the Tory leaders of the past 15 years. At the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Solutions Inquiry (17 Mar 2004)

Christine May: ...that whatever comes forward will meet the need for additional resources that the committee report identifies. I want to make two final points. The first is that, regardless of the issue of tuition fees down south, the recruitment and retention of staff, staff pay and conditions and so on must be dealt with and will require resources. Secondly—and finally—as a former lecturer in the FE...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Prime Minister (Meetings) (29 Jan 2004)

Rt Hon Jack McConnell: In answer to the questions that Mr McLetchie posed earlier this week in a letter to me, I will be very clear. First, there will be additional money for Scottish universities for both tuition fees and research. Secondly, Scottish students studying at universities in Scotland will not pay tuition fees or top-up tuition fees, as I made clear in the chamber last week. Thirdly, income from the...

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court (29 Jan 2004)

Mike Pringle: ...agree entirely with Robert Brown's point about the botched House of Lords reform. It was a shame that the reform was not mentioned in the Labour Party's general election manifesto, but neither were tuition fees, and look what has happened with them this week. A more frank and full discussion would have been preferable before the farce of the reshuffle last year, to which members have...

Euan Robson: ...needs. We will address that specific point next week, when we debate the Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Bill. I advise Lord James that I was in the chamber at the end of the tuition fees debate and that we will pay careful attention to the points that have been raised. Robert Brown made some important points on the teaching of science, as did Elaine Murray. We will...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Prime Minister (Meetings) (22 Jan 2004)

John Swinney: I thank the First Minister for his answer. On Tuesday evening, Sam Galbraith said that the so-called abolition of tuition fees had been a con. He said: "In Scotland we have already accepted fees ... it is just a question of our universities being allowed to top them up." He also said: "The role for me now is to be able to say the things that others would like to say but are not able to do...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Cabinet (Meetings) (22 Jan 2004)

David McLetchie: ..., whether the charge is called a fee, an endowment or a tax, it is a liability; it is compulsory and it must be paid. The truth is that more people believe in the Loch Ness monster than believe that tuition fees have properly been abolished in Scotland. Scottish students know that that is a lie, Sam Galbraith knows that that is a lie and, I believe, deep down the First Minister knows that...

Scottish Parliament: Higher Education (Top-up Fees) (22 Jan 2004)

Kenny MacAskill: ...MPs to fail to vote would be an abdication of responsibility and to vote for top-up fees would damage and undermine their constituents and their country. Another aspect is the question of whether tuition fees have been abolished. I do not want to mull too much over the private grief between the Liberal Democrats and their Labour colleagues. The fact of the matter is quite clear: Sam...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Higher Education Bill (15 Jan 2004)

Sandra White: ...of Scotland. Talking of legacies, I want to turn to the other unionist party. The Labour Party has taken on the Tory legacy and developed it with even more vigour.
