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


Finlay Carson

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

Finlay Carson

Meeting of the Parliament 21 March 2019 [Draft] : 21 March 2019


Finlay Carson

Meeting of the Parliament 21 March 2019 [Draft] : 21 March 2019


Finlay Carson (Galloway and West Dumfries) (Con)

I am pleased to speak in this debate a week after I spoke in Andy Wightman’s members’ business debate on who owns Scotland. The subject of land reform in Scotland has long been debated in th...
