New clause 6: Small Firms (27 Mar 1995)

Mr Harry Barnes: The example of Macdonalds in Britain has already been given. The Bill, inadequate though it may be, will apply to Macdonalds, which because of its provision of goods and services, will incur some costs. The costs, however, will be outweighed by the returns that my hon. Friend has mentioned. The Bill applies to companies in other matters, so why should we not say to Macdonalds that its...

Scottish Parliament: Presiding Officer’s Ruling (12 Dec 2012)

Tricia Marwick: Good afternoon. Before we start, I will make a very short statement. Last night, I responded to a point of order from Lewis Macdonald in relation to the Scottish Government’s handling of parliamentary questions. I commented that, as a matter of general courtesy and respect for the Parliament, the content of any point of order should not be circulated to the press in advance of its first...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (3 Sep 2019)

Kenneth Macintosh: ...of business is consideration of two Parliamentary Bureau motions. Motions moved, That the Parliament agrees that— Willie Coffey be appointed to replace Angela Constance on the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee Richard Lyle be appointed to replace John Mason on the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee Gail Ross be appointed to replace Gordon MacDonald on the Education and Skills...

Scottish Parliament: Referendum Consultation (25 Jan 2012)

Alex Salmond: The timetable is very detailed in a range of ways. Lewis Macdonald would do well to consider that the legislation has to go through the Parliament in a proper fashion. I have lost count of the number of times when exigencies or other matters, particularly legal matters, have been brought to the Parliament and it has rightly had to adopt a shortened procedure. I see absolutely no reason why...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Bill: New Clause. — (Duration of Certain Provisions.) (7 May 1951)

Mr Francis Bowles: What does my right hon. Friend mean by saying that I was not drawing a precedent from our party? I certainly was. Ramsay MacDonald and Philip Snowden borrowed money in order to keep us on the gold standard. A condition of that was, as Frank Owen was told, that those cuts had to remain in the Unemployment Insurance benefits. That is precisely what happened. When the majority of the Labour...

Written Answers — Deputy Prime Minister: Fire Control Centres (27 Oct 2005)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Initial estimates of the cost of establishing nine regional control centres were provided in the Strategic Outline Business Case, which was based on the report by Mott MacDonald 'The Future of Fire and Rescue Service Control Rooms in England and Wales: Update 2003'. Mott MacDonald calculated that over a 10 year period, at 2004 prices, the regional control option would deliver a total net...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Sector (Support) (10 Mar 2015)

John Swinney: Of course. However, in the debate, the most that we could get out of Mr Macdonald was that he thinks that the UK Government should look at fiscal changes. The time for looking is well and truly over; we need to know where people stand. It has been patently obvious today that Mr Macdonald and the Labour Party have no idea where they stand on the fiscal changes that are required. If Labour...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Hospitals (Length of Stay) (1 Nov 2001)

Malcolm Chisholm: I am sure that Margo MacDonald knows that the length of stay in hospital has been declining throughout Scotland, the United Kingdom and further afield. That is because of changing patterns in care. There is no fundamental difference between Lothian and the rest of Scotland or further afield. There will be an excellent new hospital and orthopaedic suite at the new Edinburgh royal infirmary. I...

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (18 Jun 2019)

Adam Tomkins: Lewis Macdonald and I seek to achieve the same end, but by different means. We supported Lewis Macdonald’s amendments at stage 2, but are unable to do so now because of a critical thing that occurred between stages 2 and 3. The revised financial memorandum puts the costs of Lewis Macdonald’s amendments on culturally protected zones at up to £330 million. We do not think that that cost is...

Scottish Parliament: Planning Law (Protection for Live Music Venues) (6 Dec 2017)

Kevin Stewart: I applaud Mr Macdonald for constructively engaging on the issue, as have other members, including Tom Arthur and Fiona Hyslop—the Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs—who has a close interest in the matter. I fully intend to meet representatives of the Musicians’ Union shortly, and I will continue to liaise with the cabinet secretary for culture to see whether...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Parish Relief, Govan. (13 Jun 1928)

Mr Neil Maclean: 20 and 21. asked the Minister of Labour (1) whether he is aware that the Govan Parish Council and the Govan Employment Exchange have an arrangement between them that an unemployed man or woman in receipt of parish council relief must have a card stamped once each week by the local Exchange; and whether he can state the number of cards which the Exchange officials have refused to stamp in...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (3 Sep 2019)

Kenneth Macintosh: I propose to ask a single question on two Parliamentary Bureau motions, unless any member objects. The question is, that motions S5M-18641 and S5M-18642, in the name of Graeme Dey, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, be agreed to. Motions agreed to, That the Parliament agrees that— Willie Coffey be appointed to replace Angela Constance on the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Budget (25 Mar 2010)

John Swinney: The Scottish Government is, of course, investing significantly in the renewables industry. Last weekend, the First Minister announced the wave and tidal renewables scheme. I thought that Mr Macdonald would have jumped to his feet to welcome that; he normally jumps to his feet to welcome things that the First Minister has announced. I caution Mr Macdonald to consider Mr Gibson's question. He...

Scottish Parliament: Infrastructure Investment Plan (15 Dec 2011)

Alex Neil: Mr Macdonald misses the point, which is that, despite the cuts from his chancellor, the repeated cuts from the Tory chancellor and the cuts that he has just enunciated, over the next three years we will invest between £11 billion and £12 billion in the Scottish economy because we are taking an innovative and dynamic approach that is unprecedented in the history of the Parliament. I wish Mr...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Counter-terrorism and Security Powers (13 Jul 2010)

Mark Durkan: As someone who, in the last Parliament, opposed from the Government Benches many of the previous Government's measures in legislating disproportionately and, I believe, counter-productively on counter-terrorism, may I ask the Secretary of State to explain why, in the context of this review, the parallel powers in the Justice and Security (Northern Ireland) Act 2007 should not also be reviewed...

Scottish Parliament: Point of Order (19 May 2004)

George Reid: I have considered the point of order that Mrs MacDonald raised earlier this afternoon. I have made inquiries and I understand that tomorrow's visit to Holyrood was organised over the past month by the builders, Bovis Lend Lease, and the architects, RMJM, and that it was merely facilitated by the Parliament's media office. I am also informed that Building Design magazine did not respond by the...

Scottish Parliament: Apprenticeships (10 Mar 2011)

Alex Salmond: Let us talk first about Labour’s lead, as Lewis Macdonald described it. In 2006-07, the Labour-led Administration offered 15,000 modern apprenticeships in Scotland. The figure of 25,000 this coming year is not only a record, but a 66 per cent increase on what Labour led. Lewis Macdonald may describe that as following a Labour lead, but I think that it is a very substantial and welcome...

Prayers: Solicitors (Complaints) (27 Oct 1995)

Simon Hughes: I welcome the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department to his position and am grateful for his attendance. I have had a brief conversation with him on this subject so that, I hope, his Department is not taken by surprise by the matters that I wish to raise. In summary, this is what I might call an everyday tale of dissatisfaction with solicitors. It raises, however, important...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (26 Sep 2017)

John Swinney: The way in which Mr Macdonald categorised the chancellor’s remarks of yesterday is not consistent with what is in the bill. The bill says something very different from the way in which Mr Macdonald characterised the issue. Fundamentally, there has to be a change in the bill to avoid the situation that the Scottish Government is concerned about, with, I believe, broad support from the...
