Canlyniadau 1–20 o 502 ar gyfer speaker:Jim Fairlie

Senedd yr Alban: General Question Time: Winchburgh (Railway Station) (20 Meh 2024)

Jim Fairlie: As Sue Webber will be aware, the proposal is included in the council’s development plan. It was always a developer-led proposal, and it is one that I welcome, as I note the MSP for the constituency, Fiona Hyslop, does, too. There have been calls for the Government to get involved because of a lack of progress in taking the project forward for various reasons. I am happy to respond to those...

Senedd yr Alban: General Question Time: Winchburgh (Railway Station) (20 Meh 2024)

Jim Fairlie: To correct what the member has just said, East Renfrewshire Council is acting as the lead proposer for Balgray station. The council has obtained the required funding through the successful application to the city region deal and transport officials have provided East Renfrewshire Council with strategic support for the development of the outline business case and the final business case...

Senedd yr Alban: Agriculture and Rural Communities (Scotland) Bill (18 Meh 2024)

Jim Fairlie: Will Finlay Carson give way?

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Orkney Interislands Air Service (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: The provision of public service obligation operations in Orkney is a matter for Orkney Islands Council and Loganair. Therefore, the Scottish Government has not assessed the accessibility of those services. I know that Loganair is receptive to feedback on how the services could be improved for anyone who relies on them. As for the island communities, the Mobility and Access...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Orkney Interislands Air Service (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I assure Liam McArthur that that conversation could be had. I am also aware that officials are scheduling a meeting with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar in June to discuss healthcare provision. We will keep members updated on that.

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Under-22s Free Bus Travel Scheme (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: More than 137 million journeys have been made since the young persons free bus travel scheme began. A one-year evaluation of the scheme was published in December 2023. The study showed that the scheme is making good progress towards longer-term objectives by reducing travel costs for young people and their families; encouraging a shift towards public transport from private car use; and...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Under-22s Free Bus Travel Scheme (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: Since the introduction of free bus travel for under-22s, we have been acutely aware that applying for their entitlement is challenging for some children and young people. That is why, early on, we listened carefully to what families and young people were telling us, and we worked with the Improvement Service to make improvements. We have worked hard to ensure that children, parents...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Under-22s Free Bus Travel Scheme (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: We are absolutely aware that some incidents of antisocial behaviour have been linked to the introduction of the young persons free bus travel scheme. It is important to remember that the vast majority of people use the bus properly. One of my concerns about the fact that this issue keeps coming up about the scheme—quite rightly; I am not saying that it should not be brought up—is that...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Under-22s Free Bus Travel Scheme (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: As Alex Rowley will be well aware, this is a deregulated sector, so we have to do scoping work on what the flat fares pilot will look like. As that develops, I will be more than happy to meet Alex Rowley to discuss progress.

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Loganair Timetables (Na h-Eileanan an Iar) (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I commend Alasdair Allan for his ability to say those words. Like all airlines, Loganair continually reviews capacity and schedules to ensure the most efficient use of its aircraft. In doing so, it has regard to the needs of the communities that it serves to try to achieve the optimum connectivity for all. That is because, over the course of a day, an aircraft can be used to serve...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Loganair Timetables (Na h-Eileanan an Iar) (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I absolutely take on board the issue that Alasdair Allan has raised. Although the timetabling of commercial flights is a matter for the airlines involved, the Scottish Government recognises that more can be done to bring transport planning and health service planning together. We are working closely with the Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership to scope out a plan of work....

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Loganair Timetables (Na h-Eileanan an Iar) (23 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I can confirm that I will ask officials to take a look at the issue that Beatrice Wishart has raised while they are having a look at all the other issues that have already been mentioned.

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Land Reform (Scotland) Bill (Urban Community Assets) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: The Land Reform (Scotland) Bill sets out ambitious proposals that will change for the better how land is owned and managed in our rural and island communities. I appreciate that one size and, indeed, one bill most definitely does not fit all. The Government recognises the need to continue to develop policies and programmes for land in urban areas that reflect local needs and priorities. That...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Land Reform (Scotland) Bill (Urban Community Assets) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I absolutely take on board the point that Foysol Choudhury raises. The regeneration investment programme is supporting communities to develop and take ownership of land and assets across Scotland. To date, over £265 million has been invested through the regeneration capital grant fund, supporting nearly 230 community-led projects, and almost £27 million has been invested through the vacant...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Land Reform (Scotland) Bill (Urban Community Assets) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: The cabinet secretary is taking through the Land Reform (Scotland) Bill, and I am answering on her behalf, so I apologise if I do not give a full answer. My understanding at this stage is that the Government was looking at a figure of over 1,000 hectares—it might be 3,000. I cannot honestly give the right numbers for that, but I know that the cabinet secretary has been looking at...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Forestry and Land Scotland (Meetings) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: As Alexander Burnett will be aware, the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Land Reform and Islands regularly consults officials from Forestry and Land Scotland. I know that the member is aware that the cabinet secretary raised issues around flooding with Forestry and Land Scotland on his behalf. She regularly meets the organisation. The two most recent meetings, which were focused on...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Forestry and Land Scotland (Meetings) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I reiterate the point that I made to your colleague Rachael Hamilton: this is not my bill or my area. I was not aware of the issue that you have raised, but I will get the cabinet secretary to write to you with the details.

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Forestry and Land Scotland (Meetings) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: Over the past five years, Forestry and Land Scotland has worked with community groups that want to be more involved in managing Scotland’s national forests and land. The community asset transfer of national forests and land has been integral to the creation of businesses, tourism and recreational opportunities and to the establishment of affordable housing, woodland crofts and community...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Forestry and Land Scotland (Meetings) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: I am not quite sure what Mark Ruskell is asking. As far as I am aware, Forestry and Land Scotland is already publicly accessible. If that is not a full enough answer, I ask Mark Ruskell to come back to me, and I will ask the cabinet secretary to write to him.

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Forestry and Land Scotland (Meetings) ( 8 Mai 2024)

Jim Fairlie: As Willie Rennie said, I have consistently said that we should have the right trees in the right places, but I should point out that it is farmers who sell the land to plant trees in the first place. If we bring in controls at a later date, that will be done through the Land Reform (Scotland) Bill, which is being taken forward by the cabinet secretary.
