Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Youth Unemployment (22 Jul 1987)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: I thank the Minister for his reply—[HON. MEMBERS: "Reading."] I can read; hon. Gentlemen cannot.

Petition: Poll Tax (24 Nov 1987)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: With your permission, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and that of the House, I beg leave to submit this humble petition against the poll tax on behalf of the people in my constituency.

Your petitioners pray that your...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill (11 Jan 1988)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for granting me the opportunity to speak on the Bill, which is one of the most serious issues facing the Scottish people.

It is instead an attack on the power of local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration (18 Feb 1988)

I should like to begin by...

Profoundly Mentally Handicapped (Scotland) (3 Mar 1988)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: May I thank the Minister for his reply to me, but say that he leaves me somewhat baffled. The group that I am talking about are the Cinderellas, those with mental illness. They have little or no help. I am surprised when you tell me this, as I know for a fact that when we talk about— The motion having been made after Ten o'clock and the debate having continued for half an hour, MR. SPEAKER...

Gaming Machines (Prohibition on use by Persons under Sixteen) (9 Mar 1988)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to prohibit the use of gaming machines in cafés, small shops, amusement arcades, snack bars, fairgrounds and other places by persons under the age of 16 years. In this way I hope to tighten a loophole in the present law and so protect schoolchildren, at least, from what has become a form of hard gambling. Although the law restricts the...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Rent Officers: Additional Functions Relating to Housing Benefit etc (30 Mar 1988)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: When they assess the rent, will the rent officers make sure that the money that the tenants receive from the Government will be decreased? The local authorities will have the right to assist for a couple of weeks until things are sorted out. What does that mean? Who sorts out what? A landlord can charge whatever he wishes, so who sorts out the difference between what the Government will pay...

Points of Order (10 May 1988)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Due to the inaccurate and misleading answer that the Prime Minister gave me today, is there nothing in Standing Orders to ensure that she should give more realistic and truthful answers to Members' questions? The housing benefit cuts are the responsibility of this Government, not of local government.

Opposition Day: Pensioners (Government Policies) (6 Jul 1988)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: The recent housing benefit cuts are among the worst examples of the thoughtless, uncaring attitude that we have come to expect of the Government. The Government say that they want people to be independent, but, at the same time, they penalise the most fiercely independent section of our society—our senior citizens. Those are men and women whose lives have been governed by hard work,...
