Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: If the Government were to give greater capital consent, since many councils do not receive housing support grant to supplement their financial support for housing, would it not make the situation worse for tenants?

Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: My hon. Friend is right to suggest that we should learn from the past. May I refer to the comments by the hon. Member for Glasgow, Provan (Mr. Wray) about tenements in Glasgow and the position since 1979? I want to draw his attention to the amazing progress by the Government on the renovation of old properties in Glasgow over the past 10 years.

Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: 1 shall be reasonably brief. In examining housing support, we must look at the changing scene in housing. In 1979, only 35 per cent. of homes in Scotland were privately owned. At present, 54 per cent. are privately owned. Obviously, that reflects the change in housing support grants. Almost a quarter of a million houses have moved out of local authority control, which means that not quite so...

Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I shall stick with the problems of Kyle and Carrick. I suggest that the rise in rents stems from the inadequate repairs and maintenance programme that the Labour administration has carried out in recent years. The rise in rents that is currently required—

Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I will give way in the same way as the hon. Member for Fife, Central (Mr. McLeish) showed me courtesy when I sought to intervene in the previous debate. One of the problems which the new administration of Kyle and Carrick district council faced when it took over the reins in May this year was, as my hon. Friend the Minister said, the deliberately suppressed rents that had been established in...

Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I will not give way, but I shall sit down and allow other hon. Members to participate in the debate.

Housing Support Grant (Scotland) (17 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I said that I would not give way but simply take my seat and allow another Member to speak in this important debate.

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many people were convicted of terrorist offences in Northern Ireland in 1992.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Terrorism (18 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. How does the number of charges made compare with the number of incidents reported? Is he satisfied with the level of cross-border co-operation that he receives from the Irish Republic?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the actions of French fishermen today in destroying £10,000 worth of fish en route from Ayr to Germany? Does he recall similar incidents last year, when £30,000 of produce was lost in a similar manner? May we have an assurance that he will approach the French Government to make sure that the culprits are brought to justice and that compensation is paid to...

Private Members' Bills: Highlands and Islands Shipping Services (26 Feb 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Labour Members blocked item No. 7 on today's Order Paper—the Licensing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill —in a similar way—

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Unemployment (3 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Will my hon. Friend accept the thanks of all Ayrshire Members for the tremendous achievement of Scottish Enterprise in retaining Digital in the constituency of the hon. Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes), which is adjacent to mine, thus saving some 1,000 jobs? Scottish Enterprise deserves our compliments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Knives (3 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will introduce proposals to amend the law relating to sentences available to sheriffs for those convicted of carrying knives or other such instruments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Knives (3 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Will my hon. Friend accept my thanks for the time given by Scottish Office officials in preparing the Bill that will make the carrying of knives in public an offence? Will he welcome the support given by Opposition Members and does he agree that this is only one small step to redress an unacceptable position?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Treaty on European Union (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I came into the Chamber to listen with great interest to the speech of my hon. Friend. I certainly did not come in for the purpose of delivering my Adjournment speech at this stage, though I am prepared to do so when the opportunity arises.

Scotprime Sea Foods Ltd. (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I first thank Madam Speaker. I am extremely grateful that she called this debate tonight. I also compliment her on assisting me last week to raise the issue of 23 February and for giving me the chance to highlight the matter with the Prime Minister. I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for being here to reply tonight. We are talking not only about fishing or agriculture, both of which are...

Scotprime Sea Foods Ltd. (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I suggest that that sort of thing has been going on for many weeks and, indeed, years. It is disgraceful.

Scotprime Sea Foods Ltd. (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I appreciate the point which my hon. Friend makes. I sympathise with him and recognise the issues which he has identified. I shall raise another case in which I think fishermen in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for St. Ives (Mr. Harris) were involved. Last year, British fishermen had their nets cut by French fishermen. To be honest, that equates with acts of piracy. I...

Scotprime Sea Foods Ltd. (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I identify totally with the helpful point made by the hon. Gentleman. Instead of examining the affairs of a good, honest computer company located near the boundaries of my constituency, it would be much more appropriate and better for the Commissioner to examine the actions in France and the objectives of the European ideal. The problem relates not simply to French fishermen. French farmers...

Scotprime Sea Foods Ltd. (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I sympathise and agree with my hon. Friend. It is not simply farmers, fishermen and industrialists in the United Kingdom. The problem has grown because people in Spain, Italy, Holland and Belgium have suffered in the same way as in France. Something must be done.
