Scottish Parliament: Rail Patronage (Mid Scotland and Fife) (26 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: Last June, in relation to the Scottish transport appraisal guidance, I asked the minister when we would get a decision on the proposal for a Newburgh railway station. She promised to share the timescales with me. We are now six months on, so when will we get a decision?

Scottish Parliament: Blue Economy (25 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: The paper “Delivering Scotland’s Blue Economy Approach” states that we will “consult on applying a cap to fishing activity in inshore waters ... that will limit activity to current levels and set a ceiling from which activities that disrupt the seabed can be reduced in the light of evidence as it becomes available.” Why are we using evidence only to reduce activity instead of...

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (25 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: This is a spaghetti soup of a plan—it talks about action plans, action groups, task and finish groups, rights to a home, joined-up work and of there being no wrong door. The reality is that we have a crisis and the Government’s slick presentation of policy does not build any new homes. To be fair, new housing has been built in my constituency, in Guardbridge, Gauldry and St Monans....

Scottish Parliament: Housing (25 Jan 2023)

Miles Briggs: .... The cabinet secretary has spoken about peaks and troughs in relation to the Government meeting its housing targets, but the concern is that we are currently seeing only troughs. I agree with what Willie Rennie said about delivering the homes that Scotland needs. There is also a very real concern about the impact of the Scottish Government’s current proposed budget cuts, especially on...

Scottish Parliament: Prestwick Airport (Funding) (24 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: I am a bit puzzled about what the minister is saying about the Auditor General. The minister seems to be in conflict with what the Auditor General has said. Will he clear that up? What discussions has he had with the Auditor General to resolve that difference of opinion, and can he explain why it has come about?

Scottish Parliament: Violence in Schools (19 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: Yesterday evening, I watched a social media video of a female pupil attacking another at Waid academy, which is in my constituency. To be frank, I wish that I had not done so. I cannot get it out of my head; it was an ugly scene. Earlier this year, the then president of the Educational Institute of Scotland, Heather Hughes, warned about increasing violence in our schools. I am supporting...

Scottish Parliament: Ferry Contracts (19 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: If there is one thing of which the minister should not be proud—as she put it—it is the construction of ferries for the Western Isles. She should be ashamed of what has happened rather than proud of it. Were there any clauses in the contract with Cemre Shipyard stipulating that Scottish businesses should form part of the supply chain?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Biodiversity Strategy (19 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: Farmers have an important job to do on biodiversity, but we still do not have a bill for the agriculture support scheme. Will the minister encourage her rural affairs colleagues to speed up delivery of that bill, so that farmers can get on with the job of helping with biodiversity?

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (19 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Mine has not worked either. I would have voted yes.

Scottish Parliament: Tay Cities Deal (18 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: St Andrews university has delivered its part of the Tay cities deal at its new Eden campus in Guardbridge, and it is bursting with ideas about what to do next. It wants to crack on with the next phase of the deal. Has the minister had discussions with the United Kingdom Government about that next phase? If not, will he start such discussions?

Scottish Parliament: Education and Life Chances of Children and Young People (17 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: Before Christmas, in response to my question, the education secretary said: “we will be on track to substantially eliminate the poverty-related attainment gap in primary schools”.—[ Official Report , 8 December 2022; c 58.] She failed to mention secondary schools. Will the election manifesto promise for secondary schools be met?

Scottish Parliament: Young People’s Mental Health Services (12 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: 5. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what it is doing to support young people’s mental health services, including in colleges and universities. (S6O-01768)

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Act 2022 (12 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: The minister is right about social housing. However, he did not mention mid-market rent in his statement, so I would like some clarity on that. Kingdom Housing Association tells me that, if the rent cap is applied to that tenure, it will reduce the number of MMR properties that it is able to develop. Hillcrest Homes says exactly the same. I have written to ministers several times on the issue...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (Supreme Court Ruling) (11 Jan 2023)

Willie Rennie: The Scottish Government spent £0.25 million on last year’s Supreme Court case. Given that people are struggling to pay their home energy bills and public services are in such a state, has the cabinet secretary reflected over the Christmas period on whether that was a good use of public funds?
