Scottish Parliament: European Freight and Passenger Terminal (Fife) (2 Dec 1999)

Keith Harding: Please do not interrupt, Mr Raffan. A facility such as the one that is proposed for Rosyth would be a boon to the local economy and to the Scottish economy. Establishing the new terminal at Rosyth would provide long-term security of employment in a depressed area. It would also reduce the cost for tourists and exporters alike, who already face high fuel taxes and long travel times. I...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (8 Dec 1999)

Keith Harding: Thank you. I thank the minister for the early delivery of his speech. I had half an hour to read it, which is quite good. In Stirling, when we were in opposition, we got only two minutes. I want to respond to the minister's response to Mr Gibson. In 1994-95, the Conservatives spent £19.8 billion in real terms, while in the Labour party's first three years in office, it has spent only £17.4...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (13 Jan 2000)

Keith Harding: I welcome the minister's statement and the opportunity to debate housing. I am particularly pleased that a housing bill is to be brought forward at a later date, as both we and the SNP criticised the Executive for the absence of such a proposal in its legislative programme. I hope that that is evidence of a listening Administration. Much of what is proposed is inherited or extended...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (13 Jan 2000)

Keith Harding: Lord James Douglas-Hamilton will deal with that later himself. I do not think that his conversion was as great as that of Labour members, who were totally against the right to buy. It is a pity that the minister intervened when she did, because she would have been quite pleased with my next sentence. Because so many Scots want to own their own home, we support the Executive's commitment to...

(S1O-960)

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Scottish Opera Rescue Package (27 Jan 2000)

Keith Harding: I thank the minister for his reply, but his party's manifesto commitment said that the moneys saved from the assisted places scheme would go to reducing class sizes. Does he agree that given that manifesto commitment to use the funding to reduce class sizes in primary schools, it is entirely wrong of him to rob Scotland's schools of an accelerated rate of reduction in class sizes?
