Scottish Parliament: European Structural Funds (28 Oct 1999)

Ben Wallace: I shall give way to the SNP, because I do not know what party Keith is in.

Scottish Parliament: European Structural Funds (28 Oct 1999)

Ben Wallace: That comes from a party whose policy until 1983 was to remove itself completely from Europe, and which would therefore be in no position to negotiate anything. [MEMBERS: "Not true."] Mr Hague is quite within his rights to state his position on beef.

Scottish Parliament: European Structural Funds (28 Oct 1999)

Ben Wallace: No—I have just given way. I have a number of concerns about the plans for objective 2 funding, and, indeed, for objective 3 funding. The changes to some of the travel-to-work criteria mean, I am afraid, that some strategic sites might be left out because of a lack of recognition of industrial networks.

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (22 Sep 1999)

Ben Wallace: John Swinney's remarks about our amendment were astonishing, considering that every point made by my colleague David Davidson has been mirrored by the SNP. Perhaps SNP members are a little peeved that they did not lodge the amendment—they were probably too busy in-fighting in Inverness. We have a world-class asset, although not yet a world-class service—that is what Henry McLeish...

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (22 Sep 1999)

Ben Wallace: No, I will not. The minister espoused the report from Westminster and talked about the good things for tourism, but conveniently left out the recommendation for a dedicated minister for tourism to focus on the needs of the Scottish industry. The tourism industry is so big that it deserves that attention. On 7 July, I wrote to the minister, asking him to visit a constituency event—a pipe...

Scottish Parliament: Public Health (1 Sep 1999)

Ben Wallace: I would like to make it clear from the outset that I am in favour of public health. [Laughter.] As Margaret Smith will testify, I am always on at her to get sport and prevention into committee work, so that we can introduce measures which we hope will pay off in the future by alleviating the demands on the health service. I reiterate the point made by my colleague Mary Scanlon: individual...
