Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Ross Greer

Absolutely. I have one specific follow-up point to make. Airbnb has already been mentioned, and there is that quite substantial, unregulated part of the market. In fact, you have made robust...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Ross Greer

We are talking about the whole tourist experience. It is true that a tourist will use something and produce waste, or litter, for the business, but when they are out on the street in Edinbur...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Ross Greer

Earlier, Willie Macleod, I think, made the point that tourists contribute to local government funding by contributing to businesses that in turn pay non-domestic rates. It might go through a...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018

Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018

Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Ross Greer

You mentioned the idea of a second referendum and a people’s ratification vote. Beyond the domestic British political challenges of whether that is possible, how would the EU27 react to that...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Ross Greer (West Scotland) (Green)

I will continue on the theme of the withdrawal agreement and the future relationship agreement. Some of the more rational Brexiters, looking at the clock ticking down, seem to be going back ...



Education and Skills Committee 03 October 2018 [Draft] : 03 October 2018


Ross Greer

You are right to say that the adviser’s primary responsibility is to young people. If they observe a structural or cultural problem in a school, should they take that up with the management ...



Education and Skills Committee 03 October 2018 [Draft] : 03 October 2018


Ross Greer

I accept that, minister. It is not their responsibility entirely, but given that the guidance teacher has primary responsibility for one-to-one support of young people—and “case load” is a t...
