Mr Ronald Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement about trade with Libya.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Libya (11 Mar 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: Does not the Minister understand one thing? During my recent visit to Libya with George More, a top Scots lawyer, the British community told us that it does not want sanctions or reprisals against the Libyan regime. Whatever the problems about Lockerbie, surely the matter can be discussed sensibly around the table? That has not happened. What are the British Government doing to resolve that...

Northern Ireland (Prison Management) (4 Mar 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: As I understand it, republican terrorist groups get their arms and explosives from the middle east and America. Will the right hon. Gentleman have a quiet word with the Governments concerned, and especially with George Bush, about that matter? Where do the loyalist terrorists get their arms—and, more importantly, what are the Government doing about it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Building (26 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he last met the chairman of Lothian health board to discuss the hospital building programme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Building (26 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: I am grateful to the Minister for that statement. He is aware that the Scots want self-determination and their own Parliament—

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Building (26 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: I am grateful to you, Mr. Speaker. The Scots, especially Leithers, want democratic control of the health service. Last year, they were promised a new hospital for Leith. No brick has been laid, and I understand that the Minister has done nothing about that. If he is anxious about the Scottish dimension, will he advise the bureaucrats on the health board and in his Department about what the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Building (26 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: It is not fair on the people in my constituency—

Business of the House (13 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: As the Leader of the House knows, tax evasion is a growth industry for the rich in this country, and provides jobs for a whole host of accountants and lawyers, yet people who cannot pay the poll tax are repeatedly hounded in Scotland and gaoled in England and Wales. This is an absolute disgrace. Of course, the Government will maintain that people must pay their taxes. If that is the case,...

Business of the House (13 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: Hangers-on, the unemployed, unemployable people—

Business of the House (13 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: Under protest, I withdraw "deadbeats". I would like to find an equivalent Scots word.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Income Tax (13 Feb 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: Has not national taxation increased with higher levels of VAT and the introduction of poll tax? Is not it disgraceful that the Government are destroying living standards, yet they claim to believe in human values? Is not it also true that the Prime Minister claimed that he was concerned about third-world debt? As this country is also a third-world country, suffering a Tory Government, what is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Industrial Relations (14 Jan 1992)

Mr Ronald Brown: Should not all anti-trade union laws be scrapped if workers are to have a real right to defend themselves—or does that not matter nowadays?

Business of the House (19 Dec 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: If "there ain't no sanity clause" at least one thing is clear—Robert Maxwell was a crook living off the stock exchange as well as pension funds, which was utterly disgraceful. He also told lies about Scargill and Heathfield and about many other people. With that in mind, will the Leader of the House ensure an early debate to discuss the power of press barons past and present?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Leith (17 Dec 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: To ask the Prime Minister if he will make an official visit to the port of Leith.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Leith (17 Dec 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: That is welcome news. Leithers will give the Prime Minister a warm welcome, but they will put him in the hot seat because of mass unemployment, homelessness and general misery, which have been experienced not just in my constituency, but throughout Britain. Nevertheless, being constructive, members of the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians have published a report entitled...

Points of Order (27 Nov 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. If the law is to be more flexible, as interpreted by the Government on behalf of the big traders, will the Government also——

Points of Order (27 Nov 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: —to pay the poll tax. [Interruption.] Will the Government stop that injustice?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Trade and Tariff Barriers (27 Nov 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: If the Secretary of State believes that he can get rid of tariffs, why does he support the Common Market, now known as the European Community—that big business club which is essentially a conspiracy against the working class and is certainly not wholeheartedly supported on this side of the House? Will he explain his philosophy? If he really accepts that, somehow or other, the Common Market...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (20 Nov 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which middle east countries have no diplomatic links with Britain; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (20 Nov 1991)

Mr Ronald Brown: Obviously, both countries deserve to be recognised. Having said that, is not it clear that there can be no peace in the middle east until the Palestinian question is resolved? Will the Secretary of State set an example to his Israeli friends and recognise the Palestine Liberation Organisation as a Government in exile? Will he also allow it to set up an embassy in London? These questions are...
