Jim Wallace: Deputy Speaker, this has been a lively debate—one might think that an election was in the offing.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Jim Wallace: Of course we take part. I have sat at European Council of Ministers meetings articulating a Scottish case on justice matters. By all means, let us make a case for the union on the grounds of a stronger economy and securing greater influence on foreign policy. Let us not do it by pandering to and fostering a dependency culture. Let us also make a simple case for Britain, in keeping united a...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland in the United Kingdom (22 Mar 2007)

Jim Wallace: I am concluding. While we examine Scotland's relationship with the rest of the United Kingdom, we should not lose sight of the principle that many of us articulated in the run-up to devolution in 1999—that devolved government does not stop at Edinburgh.

Jim Wallace: The minister will acknowledge that I have been in correspondence with her and her predecessor for some time about this matter. Indeed, we are dealing with farmers whose management agreements are up for review or, in some cases, renewal. They are the very people who were pioneering in accepting management agreements over land designated as sites of special scientific interest. Does the...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — Justice and Law Officers: Tobacco (Underage Purchasers) (1 Mar 2007)

Jim Wallace: It certainly does not seem that the courts are overflowing with prosecutions of this nature. Is that because the current law is being obeyed meticulously the length and breadth of Scotland or, as we suspect, because people are not being caught? Would it not be better to try to enforce the current law before embarking on raising the age for buying tobacco?
