Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: The Opposition motion would be a joke if it were not in the names of members of the Labour Front Bench. It makes charges of "inadequate consultation", but the fact that 3,500 people were consulted disproves that accusation. The motion criticises also the shortness of time allowed, but there were four months of consultation and five months of consideration—and no doubt there will be 12...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: It is typical of Labour Members to seek more time, because it is easier to talk. They are not used to making decisions. After 14 years, they do not need to worry about making decisions.

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Member for Falkirk, East (Mr. Connarty) said that he would approve single-tier government after the establishment of a Scottish Parliament. Labour has talked about establishing a Scottish Parliament ever since it was last in government in the 1970s. It failed to provide one then and it will still be talking about one well into the next century. A Scottish Parliament is not on the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his kind initial comment. I accept that there has been strong backing for the conveners of Strathclyde regional council, but the boundaries do not reflect in any way local wishes or aspirations of people outside central Glasgow. That is the opinion also of many constituents to whom I have spoken recently.

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I will respond to that point later.—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] Opposition Members should show a little patience. I will respond. My right hon.Friend the Secretary of State listened to the wishes of the hon. Members for Cunninghame, North (Mr. Wilson), for Cunninghame, South (Mr. Donohoe), for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Mr. McKelvey) and for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes) in trying...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: The party organisation in constituencies such as that which I serve presents a candidate to the electorate, but ultimately the electorate do not vote according to ideology and habit but on the case that is presented to them. They are offered alternatives. My right hon. Friend's proposals address that important option. Labour wants to protect party interests. It is not interested in democracy...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I speak for my constituents and their right to a voice in local government. They need to be able to influence their councillors and to take account of their actions. It is up to the hon. Member for Cunninghame, North (Mr. Wilson) to decide how best to represent the interests of his constituents. I understand that he has argued for an all-Ayrshire authority in the past, but perhaps I am wrong:...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (22 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Will my right hon. Friend consider scheduling a debate on the payment of large sums of money, in many cases, to criminals by the press, bearing in mind the return to this country of drug runners from Thailand?

Treaty of Maastricht (Social Protocol) (22 Jul 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I realise that it is a long time, if ever, since the right hon. and learned Gentleman participated in the industrial scene. Will he therefore take it from me, as one who has recently come from industry, that the health and safety issue is a preoccupation of British industrialists these days and is already considered to be of prime importance?

Orders of the Day — Statement on the Defence Estimates (19 Oct 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Member for Renfrew, West and Inverclyde (Mr. Graham) cast a slur on those who operate our helicopters. We have a major station at HMS Gannet in my constituency. The people there do a great job for those in Scotland and beyond in air-sea rescue. Would the. hon. Member for Motherwell, North (Dr. Reid) like to make the point that our helicopter service is a good one in safe hands?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Economy (27 Oct 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my right hon. Friend aware that over recent months unemployment in my constituency has fallen month by month? Does he recognise that, with the recent announcement of redundancies by Jetstream, that happy trend may change? Will he ensure that, in the future, Jetstream can compete in the world market on a level playing field?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Licensing Laws (27 Oct 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my hon. Friend aware that the lobby for off-licence trading on Sunday in Scotland is very much advanced by the trade? Will he assure the House that there will be no further erosion of the quality of Sunday in Scotland?

Cold Climate Allowance (28 Oct 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Will the hon. Lady concede that my right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor has already pledged that he will protect those on state benefit? Does she agree that the people most likely to suffer from the impositions of VAT on domestic fuel will be those whose income is just above the level at which state benefit is payable—those who have provided for their future to a small extent and...

Debate on the Address: First Day (18 Nov 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: The right hon. and learned Gentleman is suggesting that hon. Members from England should not determine issues in Scotland and Wales. Is not it the case that we are a United Kingdom Parliament? Does not everyone deserve to be able to speak on such issues?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland and Wales) (22 Nov 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my hon. Friend agree that the hon. Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes) has gey few friends on the Opposition Benches?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland and Wales) (22 Nov 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I apologise to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland for not being here at the start of the debate. Perhaps, if the Strathclyde region had ensured that we had a reasonable link between the A77 and the M8, I would have made my plane on time. Once again, we are provided with a good reason for bringing about a change in Scottish local government to ensure that the interests of...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland and Wales) (22 Nov 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: My understanding is that, within the House, hon. Members represent United Kingdom constituencies. As such, Members of all parties and from all parts of the United Kingdom enter the debate and sit on Committees on United Kingdom affairs. I see no cause for concern about the legislation, and I welcome advice on the issue from all parts of the United Kingdom. Why has the Labour party changed...
