There are calls for an investigation into how HIAL handled the Remote Towers project and the spiralling costs it involved.
“Scottish Minister’s should not have approved these bonuses while households are facing rises in their water bills of at least 12% in coming months.” Rhoda Grant MSP Labour
“This report is extremely concerning and highlights that there are people in Government, Boards and within organisations who do not clearly understand their role or responsibilities” Rhoda Grant MSP
Rhoda Grant, Highlands and Islands Labour MSP was concerned that home insurance would be invalidated if homeowners fail to comply with the new fire alarm laws which are now in place in Scotland.
Her Right to Food Bill proposal consultation closes next week, 16 February.
“I know from my own inbox the number of people seeking help with mental health difficulties continues to increase”
““There is no reason at all why anyone should be going hungry in a wealthy nation like Scotland.” Rhoda Grant MSP
“My bill will enshrine a right to food in law, placing responsibility on the Scottish Government to make this a reality”
“It is a shambles of monumental proportions – one which is costing time, and money and not even meeting the actual requirements of the CAA, let alone those of communities. “
HIAL’s remote towers project came under the watchful eye of the Scottish Parliament’s Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee again today, 17th November 2021.
