Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 21 March 2019 : 21 March 2019


Christine Grahame

I was told in an answer to a question to the SPCB that it is up to the Government to pick up the publicity for a member’s bill. Will you do that?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 21 March 2019 : 21 March 2019


Christine Grahame

You said that there is a bit of a problem but that you think that many people know about the 2010 act. I seriously do not think that that is the case. If you walked out of here, went into Te...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 21 March 2019 : 21 March 2019

Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 21 March 2019 : 21 March 2019


Christine Grahame

Are you unhappy about what is being said? If it was your legislation, not mine, would you be writing to the data protection officer and saying that the process is...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 21 March 2019 : 21 March 2019


Christine Grahame

I think that we are going round in circles. It seems to me that the 2010 act is self-policing. The public report instances where they think that a dog is out of c...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 21 March 2019 : 21 March 2019


Christine Grahame
