Defence Estimates (15 Oct 1996)

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

Defence Estimates (15 Oct 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: It is all very well to joke about the activities of Conservative Members, but the hon. Gentleman made a serious point a few minutes ago. He suggested that if widespread catastrophe occurred in Bosnia—with perhaps people dying all over the place—the armed forces would step back. That would be against the wishes of my constituents who have written to me in great numbers on that issue and...

Defence Estimates (15 Oct 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my hon. Friend agree that commercial interests are best served by demonstrations by our armed services of safe and competent usage of equipment? On that basis, does he agree that there must be an element of RAF low-level flying in Scotland, where we probably take more than our fair share? Does he also agree that RAF air traffic control services must be kept at a high level? Will he join...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: British Beef (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he has taken to support the promotion of British beef in the shops [36412]

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: British Beef (18 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. Friend. Does she agree that mince and tatties is a much-loved traditional Scottish dish, rich in taste and nutritional value? Does she further agree that British minced beef is a prime product and that Europeans are mugs to miss out?

Points of Order (16 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I wrote to you yesterday enclosing a piece of House of Commons notepaper that had been transformed into a Labour party recruiting document. I registered my interest as I felt that I could make valuable use of such documentation in my own constituency. I refrained from doing so, because it is my understanding that it would be a breach of regulations and, as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: British Soldiers (Murder Convictions) (11 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many British soldiers are currently imprisoned convicted of murder for incidents which occurred when they were on active duty in Northern Ireland; and if he will make a statement. [35389]

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: British Soldiers (Murder Convictions) (11 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: Can the Minister advise whether soldiers in such circumstances have been released in the past? If so, how many years did they serve in prison?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Thursday 11 July. [35413]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, despite the downbeat assessment of Britain's industrial involvements of late by the voice of Labour—sadly not with us today—investment by Lucky Goldstar in Wales, Unipart in England and Lite-On in Scotland demonstrates that UK plc is in very good heart?

Schedule 5: Miscellaneous and Consequential Amendments (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Lady may have heard the hon. Member for Dundee, East (Mr. McAllion) say that a Labour Government—an unlikely prospect—would take opted-out schools in Scotland back under local authority control, which would cut across the pledges made by the right hon. Member for Sedgefield (Mr. Blair). Can the hon. Lady confirm that that would be done?

Clause 23: Grants for Education of Children Under School Age (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Lady suggests that nursery vouchers are divisive. I cannot understand that, because every parent in Scotland will be offered £1,100 for their child's nursery education. That is certainly what my constituents want, and they resent the hon. Lady's attempt to remove the option from them when they are desperate to ensure that their children have a nursery education.

Clause 33: Placing Requests (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State. I spoke on this issue in Committee. It has nothing to do with Euro-scepticism. It is all about good relationships with the public and recognition of their understanding of issues.

Opposition Day: Occupational Pensions (9 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: Did my hon. Friend hear the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith) suggest that the regulations were cumbersome? Does he agree that, had we listened to the hon. Gentleman, they would have been still more cumbersome?

Opposition Day: Occupational Pensions (9 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for conducting reasonable discussions recently. Questions have been raised about why we sign early-day motions. We do so to apply pressure to Ministers so that discussions may follow and some movement may occur. That happens on occasion. In this instance, I must express some disappointment that we shall not appoint mandatory pensioner trustees to pension...

Opposition Day: Occupational Pensions (9 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: When the hon. Gentleman referred to the Goode report, he mentioned the fact that there was encouragement to take on board pensioner trustees. It seems that my hon. Friends have adopted that encouragement. Is the hon. Gentleman suggesting that that should be mandatory? If so, I have some sympathy with that position. But he used the words "large schemes".

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Armed Forces (Overstretch) (9 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my hon. Friend agree that search and surveillance are of the utmost importance to our defence industry? On that basis, what plans does he have to upgrade the maritime patrol aircraft?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Under-age Drinking (4 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what actions he is taking to curb under-age drinking; and if he will make a statement. [34527]

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Under-age Drinking (4 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thank my hon. Friend for that commitment. I draw to his attention the fact that it will be warmly welcomed in my constituency, where alcohol abuse by youngsters under the drinking age is a cause of constant aggravation. Can he assure me once again that there will be early legislation on that matter?

Stone of Destiny (3 Jul 1996)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my right hon. Friend accept that my constituents will welcome the return of the stone to Scotland? They will also welcome the commitment that the stone will play a part in future coronation services. My right hon. Friend obviously recognises that it is symbolic of Scotland's part in the Union. Does he agree that there is no chance of him taking steps that will damage the Union, unlike...
