Anne McGuire: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Crime and Disorder Bill [Lords] ( 8 Apr 1998)

Anne McGuire: Unlike the right hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith), I welcome the opportunity to have Scottish legislation piggy-backed through on the Bill. It would have been faintly bizarre and somewhat bewildering for the Scottish people if some of those generic issues relating to anti-social behaviour and sex offending had not been considered in this way when there is such pressure on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Apr 1998)

Anne McGuire: If he will list his official engagements for Wednesday 29 April.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Apr 1998)

Anne McGuire: I thank the Prime Minister for his answer. A year ago, people in Stirling made their contribution to the election of a Labour Government by throwing out—I love to say it—the then Secretary of State for Scotland. Does the Prime Minister recognise that our emphasis over the past year on the economy, health and education has kept faith with those voters, and that we will build on that...

Strategic Defence Review ( 8 Jul 1998)

Anne McGuire: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on an inclusive and open process, culminating in the television programme, which was undoubtedly the talk of the steamie throughout Scotland. As a member of the armed forces parliamentary scheme, it struck me as faintly bizarre that we have invested tens of thousands of pounds in technicians who have no transferable pieces of paper to take them into...

New Deal (Scotland) (25 Apr 2001)

Anne McGuire: Primary school.

Public Bill Committee: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 283 - Northern Ireland: interpretation (18 Dec 2001)

Anne McGuire: May I ask you to use your good offices to make arrangements for better heating in this Room, so that we can all see the Bill through to the bitter end, Mr. Gale? Otherwise I will be forced to spend the holidays gathering peat.

Public Bill Committee: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 293 - Seizure of cash (10 Jan 2002)

Written Answers — Scotland: Mental Health Services (10 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: There are no such plans at present. The Health Professions Council, established on 1 April 2002, can propose the extension of its remit to health professions which are not currently regulated. Under the Health Act 1999, any orders to implement such a proposal would have to be approved by the UK and Scottish Parliaments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Postal Services (11 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: The operation of postal services in Scotland is a matter for the board of Consignia, subject to the conditions determined by the postal regulator, Postcomm.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Postal Services (11 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his question. I was worried that when I rose to speak today the House would empty, given that I normally move the Adjournment. I crave the indulgence of the House for a second to put on record my sincere thanks to my hon. Friend the Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes) for the generosity of his comments during the transfer of his portfolio,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Postal Services (11 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: I thank my hon. Friend for his comments. I welcome the change from Postcomm and a great deal of credit for that has to go to hon. Members across the House, and in particular my hon. Friend the Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley, who met Postcomm and the trade unions. I share the philosophy of my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries (Mr. Brown) about the importance of the universal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Postal Services (11 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his generous comments. Postwatch has identified some of the exclusions that are currently in place. To avoid spreading panic across rural Scotland, let me identify clearly what those exclusions relate to, which is normally relative inaccessibility by road—for example, difficulties with transport; non- existence of daily ferry services; and second home owners...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Postal Services (11 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: I thank my hon. Friend for his kind remarks. In the interests of health, I should say that Capstan Full Strength do not do one any good, and my father paid a penalty for smoking them over a long period. I know that he is sitting on a cloud somewhere laughing at that comment. On the one-stop shop, there have been pilots in Leicestershire and Rutland, which are currently being evaluated. I hope...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Postal Services (11 Jun 2002)

Anne McGuire: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his opening comments. I trust that he is talking about Lord Ewing when he refers to predecessors in the Scotland Office. I assure him that I am not seeking to emulate the fate of my immediate predecessor in the constituency. It is incumbent on Members of Parliament, regardless of their political persuasion, not to scaremonger about what is happening to the rural...
