Orders of the Day — Education ( 3 Jul 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: I ask the same question in relation to Scotland. Will the Minister give us the figures for Scotland?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Ministerial Visits (11 Jul 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: To ask the Prime Minister when he next expects to visit Ayrshire. [31817]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Ministerial Visits (11 Jul 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: I am sure that the people of Ayrshire will be glad of that. May I turn the Prime Minister's attention to the national health service and, in particular, to Ayrshire and Arran health board's idea of taking all its services into the private sector and allowing companies from the United States to come in purely on the basis of profit? What has the Prime Minister got to say about that? How can he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Cumbernauld Development Corporation (18 Oct 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: As the Minister has travelled to all the new towns during the recess, he may have been given information about the transfer of housing stock in East Kilbride, where more than 97 per cent. of the tenants voted for transfer to the local authority. The overwhelming majority of the population in Cumbernauld did the same, as did the population in Glenrothes. Why, then, does he allow the...

Points of Order ( 1 Nov 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: Although obviously I accept your ruling, Madam Speaker, on the application for an emergency debate under Standing Order No. 20 made by my hon. Friend the Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes), I wonder what other avenues are open to us as Members of Parliament to pursue the matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Munitions Dumping (South-west Scotland) (22 Nov 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: The Minister may be aware that a public inquiry has been held on the overland route of the electrical interconnector in Scotland and Northern Ireland. What has not been covered by any public inquiry is its route under the sea. Given the latest concerns in relation to the laying of British Gas's pipeline, does the Minister think that it is now time for a public inquiry about its route under...

Orders of the Day — The Economy (22 Nov 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: The hon. Member for Cheadle (Mr. Day) said that he was a product of Labour and, judging from his speech tonight, he has not done too badly. The Gracious Speech is paper thin as far as Scotland is concerned; it contains nothing of any meaning for Scotland. Two days after the Queen's Speech, the Secretary of State introduced a hare-brained scheme to engender some alternative to our...

Orders of the Day — The Economy (22 Nov 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. While nurses, and other staff, are restricted to pay rises of some 3 per cent. per annum, general managers in the trusts and the health boards of Scotland award themselves increases of up to 25 per cent. There is something fundamentally flawed in a system that allows that to continue. The issue clearly needs to be addressed, and it is not likely to happen...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland (20 Dec 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: The Secretary of State, in giving us that information, will know of the shambles that has resulted from the lack of funding for the celebrations next year of the bicentenary of the death of Burns. There is a severe lack of sponsorship from the private sector. In those circumstances, will he give a commitment to funding the celebrations directly from the Scottish Office to make up for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Towns (31 Jan 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: The Minister will recall that, last year, I asked a question about the effects of £11 million for urban development being lost from Irvine new town because of the closure of Irvine development corporation. He said that the money would be distributed to local enterprise companies. Why, then, must the LEC in Ayrshire put up with a cut of £2.5 million? In those circumstances, how can industry...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Unemployment (28 Feb 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: Just when will the Secretary of State concede that the only tartan tax there has ever been in Scotland was the poll tax, for which he was responsible?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) (28 Feb 1996)

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) (28 Feb 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: The hon. Gentleman lives in an unreal world. He has lived all his days in the leafy suburbs of either West Kilbride or Ayr: he has never lived in the middle of a slum area. That is part of the problem that he faces in debating housing allocation. I do not represent Saltcoats, but I know that the housing stock there is among the best in Cunninghame and always has been. That is all down to the...

Education (Scotland) ( 6 Mar 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: rose—

Mr. Charlie Thom (13 Mar 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: This debate has been rather overshadowed by events in Scotland today. I understand that at Dunblane primary school in Dunblane 13 children and two adults have been killed and eight others have been injured. I offer my sincere condolences to the families and relatives of those killed or injured in the tragedy. I understand that, later today, formal statements will be made by the Leader of the...

Mr. Charlie Thom (13 Mar 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: I am grateful to be able to present the case in this short Adjournment debate of Charlie Thom of 35, Ashgrove road in Kilwinning, which involves a march-fence division wall. The case could be considered to be very complicated. Indeed, from reading several documents and letters concerning it, I consider it complicated. I shall try to make it as simple as possible and break it down into three...

Mr. Charlie Thom (13 Mar 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: Surely the Minister must recognise the fact that the Scottish Law Commission has been dealing with the case for seven years. We require a decision in the near future, not one that will take two, three or four years. Some effort is needed, because the Law Commission has no resources to complete the consultation process and present to the necessary authorities the solution to the problem.

Mr. Charlie Thom (13 Mar 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: On the question of a common wall versus a mutual wall, does the Minister not concede that the Thom case itself changed the definition? Before that, all case law was seen by others as based on 18th and 19th-century case history, and Lord Jauncey could show nothing to suggest that a change had taken place between the 19th century and the 20th century. Clearly from a commonsense point of view,...

Mr. Charlie Thom (13 Mar 1996)

Brian H Donohoe: Obviously the Minister was not listening to what I said about the Scottish Law Commission. Viscount Davidson, the chairman, wrote to Mr. Thom on 16 October 1990 to say that, having researched the matter, he believed the law to be in disarray. That was in 1990; here we are in 1996, and nothing has been resolved. The latest-30th—annual report of the Scottish Law Commission says about boundary...
