Meeting of the Parliament 22 September 2016 [Draft] : 22 September 2016


Humza Yousaf

The member raises an important point. Of course, the good-news story on the railways is that their popularity has grown by 27 per cent since 2007. More people wan...



Meeting of the Parliament 22 September 2016 [Draft] : 22 September 2016


Humza Yousaf

Meeting of the Parliament 22 September 2016 [Draft] : 22 September 2016


Humza Yousaf

Meeting of the Parliament 22 September 2016 [Draft] : 22 September 2016


The Minister for Transport and the Islands (Humza Yousaf)

Meeting of the Parliament 06 September 2016 [Draft] : 06 September 2016


Humza Yousaf

It may be a new parliamentary session, but it is the same old Scottish Labour Party. To be accused of a summer of chaos by Scottish Labour is quite ironic.



Meeting of the Parliament 06 September 2016 [Draft] : 06 September 2016


Humza Yousaf

I will try to strike a note of consensus. I agree with the member. It is utterly unacceptable, and the point of the review is to put Network Rail through the mill...



Meeting of the Parliament 06 September 2016 [Draft] : 06 September 2016


The Minister for Transport and the Islands (Humza Yousaf)

As I indicated in my letter to the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee on 5 July, the Office of Rail and Road published a report, also on 5 July, that identified risks around Network Ra...



Meeting of the Parliament 16 June 2016 : 16 June 2016


Humza Yousaf

First, I sincerely hope that we will still be part of the European Union when we have that conversation, and that in a week’s time we will be making that positive...
