Scottish Parliament Edinburgh Tram (Line One) Bill Committee Monday 3 October 2005

[The Convener opened the meeting at 10:07]

Good morning. I welcome everyone to the 16th meeting in 2005 of the Edinburgh Tram (Line One) Bill Committee. Before we commence, I note that I have become increasingly concerned about further articles that have appeared in the local press from official and unofficial sources. I am sure that people will appreciate that it is extraordinarily difficult not just for the committee to operate in that context, but for objectors to come to committee meetings when they do not know quite what route is under discussion. Therefore, it is my view that we should write in the strongest possible terms to the City of Edinburgh Council about the leaks.

I agree.

I back up totally what the convener has said. If there are any more such articles in the press, the whole process will be undermined. The strongest possible action should be taken to stop that now.

I agree with those remarks.
