Lindsay Roy: The Minister spoke about a potential saving of £500 million. When will we get the actual figure?
Lindsay Roy: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow South West (Mr Davidson) on securing this debate and his tenacity in opposing the bedroom tax. Indeed, he has been an ambassador for nullifying its impact, particularly in Scotland but throughout the rest of the UK as well. The imposition of the hated bedroom tax is one of the most vile, abhorrent pieces of legislation ever passed by...
Lindsay Roy: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Can he offer an explanation why?

Lindsay Roy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Burton (Andrew Griffiths) and to listen to his speech on small beer. At a time when we hear that we are turning an economic corner—I welcome this immensely—after several challenging years of recession, this year’s Budget should have been one of optimism and hope for all, and in particular for those who have suffered the most under the...
Lindsay Roy: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. In my office, we deal with 12 such cases every week, concerning Atos and sanctions. The forcible and inhumane imposition of the bedroom tax is a real concern for us. The Prime Minister should have sent the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions back to do his homework properly, and to plan a course of action on welfare benefits on a fair,...
Lindsay Roy: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what his policy is on the cost of decommissioning the nuclear power stations at Torness and Hunterston if Scotland votes for independence.
