Orders of the Day — Flooding (Strathkelvin) (16 Jan 1995)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Burns Day (25 Jan 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: As the only Ayrshireman in the House, I believe that the proposal of my hon. Friend the Member for Falkirk, West (Mr. Canavan) should be considered much more seriously than the Secretary of State suggested. I draw the right hon. Gentleman's attention to a bizarre decision in Irvine to shift the Burns monument from the moor to the middle of a busy roundabout. If anybody is killed, will the...

National Health Service (31 Jan 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: My hon. Friend must understand that the Tories have a hidden agenda. They want to privatise the health service, and are beginning to do so with trusts. The health board in my district this week signed a contract with a private American company that will lead to profits going across the pond. What does my hon. Friend think of that?

Brian H Donohoe: Further to the question of my hon. Friend the Member for Midlothian (Mr. Clarke), will more serious aspects of the Forth railway bridge be taken into account, so that we can have a full debate? My hon. Friend and I visited the bridge, walked across it and took a boat in between the structures and it is clearly in a desperate state. It requires immediate attention and it requires more than my...

Workplace Injury Victims: Passenger Services under Rail Privatisation (7 Feb 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: I thought that we were here this evening to speak about passenger services under rail privatisation, not to be given some quotations about other utilities that have been privatised.

I have three areas of doubt that I want to bring to the attention of the Government: first, from a Scottish perspective, the funding situation; secondly, the infrastructure;...

Points of Order (21 Feb 1995)

Prayers: Forth Rail Bridge (22 Feb 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: I welcome the opportunity to speak in the debate. With my hon. Friends the Members for Midlothian (Mr. Clarke) and for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell), I have visited the Forth bridge. One may wonder why a west coast Member of Parliament involves himself in this situation, but, as the Minister will know, I am a member of the Select Committee on Transport and I believe that it is important to focus...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Water Authorities (Chairmen) (22 Feb 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: When the Secretary of State meets the chairmen, will he discuss with them why questions addressed by hon. Members to the right hon. Gentleman have been dealt with by those quango chairmen? When one writes to the quango chairmen, one discovers that they do not reply for months. Will the right hon. Gentleman do something about that intolerable situation?

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice (Scotland) Bill [Lords] (27 Feb 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: When the Minister meets the chairman of Ayrshire and Arran health board, which has become a trailblazer towards privatisation, will he suggest that its latest proposal to contract out ante-natal clinics at a rumoured £60 per patient will allow the high level of infant mortality in Ayrshire to continue?

Opposition Day: Housing Market (13 Jun 1995)

Brian H Donohoe: I wish to draw the House's attention to another aspect of housing. The housing market in my area is in crisis.
