Public Petitions Committee 29 June 2017 [Draft] : 29 June 2017


Angus MacDonald

For the time being, the committee should reserve the right to initiate a debate in the chamber if the Scottish Government is not willing to do so. I hope that it is willing to do that but, i...



Public Petitions Committee 29 June 2017 [Draft] : 29 June 2017


Angus MacDonald

Public Petitions Committee 29 June 2017 [Draft] : 29 June 2017


Angus MacDonald

Public Petitions Committee 29 June 2017 [Draft] : 29 June 2017


Angus MacDonald

Absolutely, and I congratulate the petitioner for making sure that the issue is on the radar. Nevertheless, I am minded to close the petition under standing order rule 15.7, given the conven...



Public Petitions Committee 29 June 2017 [Draft] : 29 June 2017
