The newly re-elected Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn has told BBC Scotland

:00:00.:00:11.

he believes the party can win back "a lot" of support in Scotland.

:00:12.:00:15.

He said there was a "great deal of hope" in the Scottish party,

:00:16.:00:21.

despite it finishing third in May's Holyrood election.

:00:22.:00:23.

Here's our political correspondent, Nick Eardley.

:00:24.:00:25.

How does Labour solve its Scotland problem?

:00:26.:00:31.

May saw its worst ever result at a Holyrood election,

:00:32.:00:34.

relegated to third place behind the Tories, but with no sign

:00:35.:00:37.

of the top two changing, will things change in message?

:00:38.:00:46.

The reality is, they are not using the powers they've got

:00:47.:00:49.

in the Scottish Parliament, and local government cuts continue.

:00:50.:00:52.

Therefore, people lose their jobs

:00:53.:00:54.

Can you win a general election in Scotland?

:00:55.:00:59.

We can win a lot of support in Scotland.

:01:00.:01:07.

We have won local elections and by-elections.

:01:08.:01:08.

We have elections next year,

:01:09.:01:10.

and bigger elections later on for Westminster.

:01:11.:01:14.

The Scottish party is in a good place.

:01:15.:01:17.

A row over whether the Scottish leader should be able to

:01:18.:01:24.

elect a representative to the UK executive was a theme today.

:01:25.:01:27.

Sources say Mr Corbyn tried to block it.

:01:28.:01:36.

There has to be a Scottish member of the National Executive,

:01:37.:01:38.

The decision making on that

:01:39.:01:46.

is what the discussion was about.

:01:47.:01:49.

We will come to that conclusion, and there will be

:01:50.:01:56.

Are you happy for it to be Kezia Dugdale?

:01:57.:02:01.

Very happy. We work well together.

:02:02.:02:03.

Now on to try to win back those voters.

:02:04.:02:07.

The newly re-elected Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn has told BBC Scotland

:02:08.:02:10.

he believes the party can win back "a lot" of support in Scotland.

:02:11.:02:13.

Well, as we saw in that piece - the Scottish Labour Leader -

:02:14.:02:16.

Kezia Dugdale has also been on the podium this afternoon

:02:17.:02:19.

and our Political Correspondent David Porter

:02:20.:02:20.

sent this report from Liverpool earlier.

:02:21.:02:25.

Behind me is the famous River Mersey and Merseyside is what is known as a

:02:26.:02:35.

red region. Labour to the core. Of course, once Scotland was like that.

:02:36.:02:44.

When Curzio Dugdale came to the floor speaking for the first time

:02:45.:02:51.

since elections when Labour was relegated to third, its worst ever

:02:52.:02:56.

Scottish election result, she reaffirmed that she would be willing

:02:57.:03:02.

to put taxes up in order to protect public services. Since the Brexit

:03:03.:03:08.

vote, many people in Scotland think the defining issue is whether there

:03:09.:03:14.

is going to be a second Scottish independence referendum. Kezia

:03:15.:03:19.

Dugdale tackle that had on. We cannot risk the uncertainty of

:03:20.:03:23.

another referendum and we will vote against any Rapunzel for a second

:03:24.:03:26.

independence referendum in this Parliament. Despite the public show

:03:27.:03:32.

of support for each other there are many in labour who still feel that

:03:33.:03:40.

Jeremy Corbyn is the right person to lead the party. Many people still

:03:41.:03:46.

don't believe he can lead them to an election victory. Iain Murray who

:03:47.:03:52.

resigned from the Shadow Cabinet made it clear he would only return

:03:53.:03:56.

to the Shadow Cabinet if there were elections to that body. Tomorrow the

:03:57.:04:03.

conference moves on to vote on proposals to give Scottish Labour

:04:04.:04:09.

more autonomy and give Kezia Dugdale more power on the body that

:04:10.:04:15.

regulates the whole of the Labour Party, the National executive.

:04:16.:04:20.

Tonight, sources in Scotland are pretty confident that they will win

:04:21.:04:21.

that vote tomorrow. Eight senior doctors, including

:04:22.:04:24.

the Queen's former surgeon, have been cleared of wrongdoing

:04:25.:04:26.

after a series of investigations said to have cost

:04:27.:04:28.

five million pounds. The General Medical Council launched

:04:29.:04:34.

the probe after NHS Grampian handed over an internal report

:04:35.:04:36.

into the behaviour of the doctors. Kevin Keane sent this report

:04:37.:04:39.

earlier this evening. These investigations have been

:04:40.:04:47.

rumbling on for the last two years and they focus on senior surgeons

:04:48.:04:52.

and medical staff here at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Among them is the

:04:53.:04:57.

Queen's former surgeon, seven other people were also investigated. Two

:04:58.:05:04.

reports that have been published over that time into their behaviour

:05:05.:05:09.

and practices. One was said to be critical of all eight individuals

:05:10.:05:13.

and it was passed to the General medical Council for consideration.

:05:14.:05:20.

They have considered all the recommendations in their report and

:05:21.:05:23.

have announced that they have been cleared of all allegations against

:05:24.:05:28.

them and the case against all eight individuals has been closed. This

:05:29.:05:36.

raises lots of questions about NHS Grampian's handling of this

:05:37.:05:46.

investigation and that in the investigation's report on how they

:05:47.:05:49.

contradict what they see no to be saying. NHS Grampian, incidentally,

:05:50.:05:56.

say they don't recognise the ?5 million figure but they won't

:05:57.:06:01.

comment on the price tag associated with it. Instead, they simply say

:06:02.:06:07.

they will get an providing the high quality of medical surgery services

:06:08.:06:12.

that they offer. The Queen's surgeon says he is gratified to be cleared

:06:13.:06:21.

of the case and he's thanked his colleagues and patients who have

:06:22.:06:25.

supported him over the last few years but has now resigned from his

:06:26.:06:27.

post. Divers have today been

:06:28.:06:29.

assessing the damage caused to a Caledonian McBrayne ferry -

:06:30.:06:31.

which briefly ran aground and hit the pier as it tried to berth

:06:32.:06:34.

in the Western Isles yesterday. All 76-passengers and crew escaped

:06:35.:06:37.

uninjured after the vessel appeared But the incident has

:06:38.:06:39.

raised local concerns. It was just after 11am yesterday

:06:40.:06:42.

when the MV Hebrides appeared to steam out of control

when she approached Lochmaddy The ferry struck a number of

:06:50.:06:52.

to berth her successfully. Eyewitnesses said the vessel

:06:59.:07:02.

had approached the harbour described the incident as

:07:03.:07:05.

the result of a technical failure. The crew managed to take

to the ferry terminal. At the time, people

:08:13.:08:15.

were happy with the siting, Caledonian McBrayne

:08:16.:08:19.

say they are putting on additional sailings to other routes
