Rt Hon Jack McConnell: Those who run the university systems in England and in Scotland have been able to use their basic intelligence to ensure that, despite the fact that we in Scotland have proudly abolished tuition fees—Mr McLetchie might not have noticed that we already have a different system in Scotland from the rest of the United Kingdom—we have managed to preserve the ability of Scottish students to...

Fiona Hyslop: ...main areas: higher education, public services, and child care and poverty. The Herald today gives an interesting example of a situation in which Scottish students will lose out under the proposed tuition fees because they will have the worst of both worlds. Should the proposals in the English white paper go ahead, Scottish students would have to pay £9,000 up front, whereas if we were...

Phil Gallie: ...doctors are coming through. Are a sufficient number of students going through the universities? Is there a fallback position to six-year courses? We also have to question the Executive's position on tuition fees and the removal of grants. Do those issues play a part in the problem? I am not making a political point; I am laying down the facts that we have to take into account when we...

Scottish Parliament: Education (School Meals) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (11 Jun 2003)

We went for universal provision in the case of tuition fees and such provision is similarly appropriate in other situations. I view the measure as a practical matter to be considered for a particular situation. Some people want to extend...

Scottish Parliament: Young People ( 5 Jun 2003)

Fiona Hyslop: not leave today's primary schoolchildren paying for their school when they are into their working lives. The private finance initiative or public-private partnerships in education are the worst tuition fees yet imposed. Let us not hamstring the young of today with the debts of tomorrow. Let us dump the profiteer's charter and get rid of excess profits from education, put other practices...

Dennis Canavan: ...For example, if the Labour party had had an overall majority in the previous parliamentary session, I do not think we would have seen the reintroduction of student grants, the abolition of up-front tuition fees and the introduction of free care for the elderly. In the new session, I hope that the composition of the Parliament will also help to deliver better policies and stop some of the...

Stewart Stevenson: ...hellos, but I am cautious about their effect. For a new graduate, the golden hello is likely to be substantially smaller than their debts. The introduction of the graduate tax—or the abolition of tuition fees, as the Liberals would prefer me to say—is a strong incentive for graduates to consider posts outwith the United Kingdom.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Executive's Programme (28 May 2003)

Rt Hon Jack McConnell: from antisocial behaviour. Legal changes increased the protection of victims of sexual crime and ensured that their dignity would be preserved.
