Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Defence Spending (29 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: Notwithstanding that interesting reply and the orders that were given to Yarrow's last week for type 23 frigates, will the Minister concede that there is a serious problem in terms of the diminution of defence orders? That is especially aggravated in areas such as Fife and the west of Scotland. What funding will the Minister provide to ensure that the high technology skills embraced by...

Type 23 Frigates (23 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: Does the Secretary of State accept that this news is very welcome indeed? It is a tribute not only to the management at Yarrow but to the workers, who have spent a long time removing ill-considered demarcation practices—and it is as a shipbuilder that I say that. Will the Secretary of State concede that one of the things that this will enable Yarrow to do is to keep its essential design...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: The Prime Minister's view of an expanded Europea, Community, composed of many states in eastern Europea together with existing members, is extremely attractive, but will he contrast that with the instability within the United Kingdom because the aspirations of a nationwide Scotland are frustrated by its being unable to secure its independence and membership of the Community? Will he take...

Revenue Support Grant (Scotland) (22 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: I shall be brief, because I hope that there will be an opportunity for the Minister to reply—at least to the speech of the hon. Member for Western Isles (Mr. Macdonald). We should try to get an undertaking from the Government this evening if we can. We know that local government finance is in a mess, and the Scottish National party will not let the Government off the hook on that issue. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Rechar (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: Does the Minister accept that although some of us may have a disagreement with Bruce Millan, we have known him for many years and we know that he has always been, and is, punctilious in the exercise of his duties? He could certainly teach the hon. Gentleman how to master legislation. I have complete confidence in Mr. Millan's analysis of the situation. When will the Government own up to their...

Nuclear Defence (14 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: This has been an interesting debate, because we have heard speeches from Conservative Members and especially from Labour Members which have illustrated the fact that parts of the Labour party which were threatened with extinction still exist.

Nuclear Defence (14 Jan 1992)

Mr Dick Douglas: I may have been completely wrong, but I thought that the right hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton (Mr. Kaufman) was going a little further than the hon. and learned Gentleman is suggesting, by guaranteeing employment for the work force—more than 11,000 people, if I am right. Perhaps when the hon. Member for Clackmannan (Mr. O'Neill) sums up, he will alter one letter—change "B" to...

Does he accept that he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Yugoslavia (18 Dec 1991)

Mr Dick Douglas: Does the Foreign Secretary accept that there should be general acceptance of the criteria laid down by the European Community on recognition, but that there might be some stricture about the speed of recognition, especially for Yugoslavia? Delay might give a spurious temptation to the so-called Yugoslavian army to exercise certain initiatives that could be detrimental to the freedom of other...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance Bill: Enforcement: England and Wales (17 Dec 1991)
