Orders of the Day — Wales Bill: Commencement (19 Apr 1978)

Mr Douglas Crawford: I am grateful to you, Sir Myer. I have no doubt that Hansard will have reported our remarks.

Gentleman accused the nationalists of being reptilian. He is in company with his hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen. North (Mr. Hughes), who accused us...

Orders of the Day — Wales Bill: Commencement (19 Apr 1978)

Mr Douglas Crawford: I take all the points that the hon. Member has made. However, does he agree with me—and I am very sorry about this—that certain amounts of money will be made available by big business in Wales and in Scotland against a "Yes" vote in the referendums?

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1978)

Mr Douglas Crawford: I want to speak about the Budget from a Scottish point of view, but first of all I want to make a general remark about this so-called give-away Budget. The newspapers have been filled with talk of "give-away", "boom" and "bonanza", but the Chancellor has merely given back to the people what they have put in, and he has not given back much of that. There has been much talk of the improved...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1978)

Mr Douglas Crawford: Most certainly we are for closing such a loophole. We are interested in jobs in the whisky industry, and if there are tax fiddles that reduce the number of jobs, we would be totally in favour of closing such loopholes. We suggest raising the threshold at which VAT becomes payable from £7,500 to £15,000. This would cost in Scotland £3 million per year. We also suggest a reduction of 2½...

Member of his monstrous,...

Friend the Member for Western Isles (Mr. Stewart) and my hon. Friends?
