Scotprime Sea Foods Ltd. (4 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank the hon. Gentleman. I said that all parts of the United Kingdom had suffered. Northern Ireland is every bit as much a part of the United Kingdom as Wales, Scotland or England. I take the hon. Gentleman's comments as they were given, and accept the points he made. If I reach the end of my speech in the not too distant future, I will address the hon. Gentleman's point about what should...

Scottish Government (White Paper) (9 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my right hon. Friend aware that all right-thinking Scots will welcome these well balanced, well thought out and constructive proposals? Does he accept that they will welcome the "Scottish Offices" set up throughout the land? Will he consider setting up one in Ayr?

Fishing Incidents (Protests) (10 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my hon. Friend accept that the illegal actions of the French fishermen follow the illegal actions of French farmers and French lorry drivers? Although I welcome his comments about compensation for fishermen after recent events, will he consider the compensation claims made by hauliers and farmers last summer, or even before?

Prevention of Terrorism (10 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

Prevention of Terrorism (10 Mar 1993)

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

Orders of the Day — Foreign Compensation (Amendment) Bill [Lords): Rating and Valuation (10 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: (seated and covered): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. May I point out that these Divisions on non-contentious matters which are of great benefit to the people and councils of Scotland are a dastardly attempt by the Labour party to rob the people of Scotland of cash which they deserve and which there is no reason to stop?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Budget (24 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that yesterday Britain came under attack from our EC partners for failing to endorse an EC-wide energy tax? Will he make our critics aware that our right hon. Friend the Chancellor in his recent Budget met our commitment fully by covering energy tax in the way that he has done?

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. Today, it is my unenviable—perhaps some would say, regrettable—task to present the Licensing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill. I carry a great burden, if not an unusual one, because it is, indeed, a rare task. None the less, I feel privileged as a minnow in the shoal of the massed ranks of Tory Members on these green Benches. It is,...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: It sent reverberations shaking through every town hall in Scotland. It sent every licensee who thought that he might wish to change the terms of his licence scurrying to his solicitors to see what dastardly Act had been imposed on them. The Bill rectifies all those wrongs. Clause 1(1) will amend section 23 of the Licensing (Scotland) Act. Clause 1(2) adds to section 23(2) of the 1976 Act a...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: We are dealing with a complex array of measures, with many pages of documents amending legislation, especially the 1991 Act. It would be incongruous to investigate one minor omission among a mass of legislation. We do not need a witch hunt; we simply need to rectify a wrong, which I seek the blessisng of the House to do today. I thank the Scottish Office officials for their speedy action in...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. It is my privilege to rise for a second time today to address the House, and to present a second, important Bill—one which will be welcomed by many people in Scotland. The Bill has the support of every party represented in the House, and I hope that that support will continue and that the Bill will clear its final stage today. It...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. and learned Friend. I am aware of his concerns and have looked into the matter long and hard. I recognise that my hon. and learned Friend has far greater experience than I. However, having taken advice, I still believe that the 1953 Act does not cover the carrying of these weapons. My hon. and learned Friend referred to the fact that if an individual carries an axe, he will...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. and learned Friend for his intervention. When he comes to the point at which he is defending these people, the prosecution system has decreed that there is a case to answer. Under the 1953 Act, the Crown must prove that there is an intent to use or that the weapon has been deliberately converted to be used for violent means. At present, it means that the prosecution service...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I agree. We must acknowledge that the people whom we aim to protect are the public—the law-abiding people who want to do nothing other than live in their homes and walk the streets without fear of their life or of assault. That is the aim of the Bill. I hope that the House will go with me. Other figures show a massive rise in Strathclyde in instances of attempted murder. The use of blades...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I welcome my hon. Friend's intervention——

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: I would never disagree with you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I said that the issues were not relevant to the Bill, but I welcome my hon. Friend's intervention and take his point. I should like to review the background to the Bill. The Prevention of Crime Act 1953 covers people who carry weapons with intent to use and weapons that have been designed to cause physical harm. In recent times, the...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: On this rare occasion, we in Scotland are lagging behind people in England. My hon. Friend the Member for Fulham (Mr. Carrington) describes the law in England. I suggest that cooking is not only a leisure pursuit, but a form of leisure work. As the law seems to have caused him little difficulty until now, his mind will be completely at rest when we in Scotland come into line with England. It...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: Once again, we are all indebted to my hon. Friend the Member for Tayside, North for enlightening the House. He put forward his views when the Criminal Justice Act 1988 was going through the House. I was not aware of any questions having been raised about my wearing of the national dress, although I have been aware of some questions about his wearing of it. That is his business and I shall go...

Orders of the Day — Carrying of Knives etc. (Scotland) Bill (26 Mar 1993)

Mr Phil Gallie: In all fairness—and, as everyone knows, I am very fair—an hon. Member from the Scottish National party voiced support for the Bill and was one of its listed supporters. I should not like the position to be misrepresented.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (29 Mar 1993)

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