Crown Post Offices: Franchising — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (10 Jan 2019)

Ian Murray: ...Minister, said that the Consumer Futures report was built on incorrect data, but it has since proved to be absolutely correct when we look at the practice of franchising Royal Mail services. The Morningside Crown post office in my constituency was a profitable branch at the top of Morningside Road. I can tell hon. Members how popular it was in terms of footfall, because that is where we do...

Scottish Parliament: Recreational Use of Firearms (Regulation) (25 Oct 2018)

Daniel Johnson: In recent days, the recreational use of firearms has been in the press, from the shooting of goats to an issue of concern in my constituency about the opening of a gun shop mere yards from South Morningside primary school. The school has been in touch with the police, but it can take no action because the police’s locus is over who can be a firearms dealer and not where those businesses...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 2) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Feb 2018)

James Kelly: The budget is one for chief executives in Morningside, not one for communities who are facing savage SNP cuts. It is a budget that fails the needs of Scotland’s communities. Parents in Clackmannanshire will be dismayed by the fact that the budget will result in cuts in the number of teachers in their children’s schools. Parents of children who are living in poverty who are struggling to...

Scottish Parliament: Year of Young People (12 Dec 2017)

Daniel Johnson: ...grilling that I have had since becoming an MSP was not from anyone in the chamber, nor was it at parliamentary hustings; it was when I was faced with the combined ranks of the primary 7s of South Morningside primary. When I met them six months ago, they asked me questions such as, “How does the council decide how and where to build schools?”, “What steps is the Government taking to...

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

Daniel Johnson: ...I notice that it asked two questions. First, what is the best high street for independent retail in Scotland? I assume that that is a rhetorical question, because it is obvious that the answer is Morningside Road and Bruntsfield Place—I think that there is no better example of two flourishing high streets full of independent retailers. The second question asked members to single out...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women: Scotland-Malawi Relationship (13 Sep 2017)

Ian Murray: The hon. Gentleman highlights some of the projects in his constituency, including education projects. South Morningside, Bruntsfield and Gilmerton primaries in my constituency have direct links with primary schools in Malawi. Will he reflect on the fact that that might be why this partnership has grown, flourished and endured for so long—that younger people are involved and they take that...

Ian Murray: ...request that the House of Commons urges the Government to suspend the Crown Office closure and franchising programme and instead ensure the Post Office works with Crown branches, including Morningside Post Office, to make them more efficient and profitable. And the petitioners remain, etc. [P002039]

Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Ian Murray: ...front office of Government. They have done little to do that, which has led to the situation today, where we have a number of post office and Crown office closures, including the incredibly popular Morningside post office in my constituency. Having been in this place for seven years, I may be cynical, but I do not see the Morningside post office franchising system as being about...

Scottish Parliament: Small Business Bonus Scheme (North Ayrshire) (16 Mar 2017)

Daniel Johnson: I recently met Morningside Traders Association in my constituency. A number of its members have had relatively small changes to their rateable value, but because their rateable values take them over the £15,000 threshold and because of the removal of the 50 per cent tax band , they have had large increases in their rates bills. Their point was that removal of the 50 per cent small business...

Scottish Parliament: Access to Banking (26 Jan 2017)

Daniel Johnson: The minister mentions post offices. It was with deep worry that I heard the recent announcements about the closure of Crown post offices, including the Morningside post office in my constituency. Will he join me in condemning that announcement by the Post Office and the UK Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (12 Jan 2017)

Ian Murray: ...for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry), can the postal services Minister give a statement on the Government’s role in the Post Office and its future? I received a letter this week saying that Morningside post office would be closed and franchised. It is a very profitable and well-used post office, and that closure should be stopped. Can we have a statement about what the Government are...

Scottish Parliament: Urban Broadband (14 Sep 2016)

Miles Briggs: ...of Edinburgh. The capital city has some of the greatest differences in broadband download speeds, with recent test results ranging from 0.47 megabits per second in Craiglockhart to 109.6 Mbps in Morningside. What action is the Scottish Government taking to address those urban variations in broadband provision, and when will the suppliers and providers of broadband be asked to address the...

Scottish Parliament: Named Person Policy (8 Jun 2016)

Miles Briggs: At a church hustings in Morningside, Daniel Johnson agreed with me and all the other candidates that it was important to pause and take time to review the policy. What will he say to parents and grandparents now, given that he will not support the Conservative motion this evening?

Scottish Parliament: Rail Investment Programme (8 Oct 2015)

Jim Eadie: ...minister will be aware that, over the past 30 years, there has been consistent demand to reinstate the south Edinburgh suburban railway, which would run from Waverley through Gorgie, Craiglockhart, Morningside, Blackford, Newington, Craigmillar and Portobello. We have seen new and innovative methods of transport in other parts of Europe, such as the hybrid tram-train that is used in parts...

Scottish Parliament: Protection of Asylum Seekers and Refugees (1 Oct 2015)

Jim Eadie: ...our newspapers and on our television screens. The public’s generosity has been seen in myriad ways as people reach out to offer assistance. Only last week, I met the teachers and pupils of South Morningside primary school, in my constituency, who were so moved by the plight of refugees that they raised more than £1,000 in one week. I pay tribute to them for their outstanding efforts....

Scottish Parliament: British Sign Language (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (5 May 2015)

Stewart Stevenson: I look forward to hearing about the differences between Doric BSL and posh Morningside BSL; perhaps I can do so after the debate. One or two points have come to me as the debate has developed and I thought about what I might say. Ought we to see, as part of our future planning, a standardised sign that says “BSL spoken here” so that people whose first and preferred language is BSL know...

Petitions: Housing development on Midmar Paddock, Edinburgh (25 Mar 2015)

Ian Murray: expected shortly; and further that a local petition on this matter was signed by 330 individuals in the local area, supported by the wonderful Friends of the Hermitage of Braid, and the Morningside community council, especially Mr Goff Cantley. The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Scotland to encourage the Scottish Government and...
