Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Dentists (12 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: Does the Minister accept that people are not smiling so much in Scotland? Although it is not his responsibility, he will understand that Scots are angry about the closure of Edinburgh dental school. Will he have a word with his Scottish colleagues, and advise them to keep the school on? We need it: it is important to the health of Scotland's people.

Points of Order (6 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I would like to raise a separate master concerning the Secretary of State for Scotland. He said that I should table a question to him on Barratt's. I have done that, but I am not satisfied with the reply, and neither are my constituents. If it is a cover-up job and he does not want to answer openly, then something is wrong. I believe in perestroika, glasnost,...

Public Expenditure (Scotland) (6 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: Although the Secretary of State has been addressed as Father Christmas, does he not understand that there is no sanity clause in his statement? He has told us that Scottish Homes and local councils should sell public housing in Scotland, but the Government, through the quango, the Scottish Development Agency, have bribed Barratt's with more than £300,000 to develop the West Pilton Circus...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Takeovers and Mergers (6 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: Whether the House is for or against the EEC—I am certainly against it—can the Secretary of State tell me exactly what the Government are doing to protect Ferranti, bearing in mind the predators within and outside this country who intend to take it over and asset strip it? That means that jobs will go and a major asset will be reduced to ruins both north and south of the border. Are the...

Points of Order (5 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Earlier, the Secretary of State for Defence said that he could not understand a question. Perhaps that was a mental blockage, perhaps it was political arrogance, but something strikes me about this place these days. It has to do with the noise and the acoustics. Could something be done about that? I am giving the right hon. Gentleman the benefit of the doubt,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Job Creation (5 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: Is the Minister aware that many jobs in Scotland and the north of England will go down the shute—namely the Channel tunnel—because the Government have put forward no guarantees on jobs? Bearing in mind all the wheeling and dealing backed by Government, is it not an absolute disgrace that they have not come forward with any guarantees for the future of the people who matter? What is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Dec 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker.

Business of the House (30 Nov 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: Since the Government claim to support human rights, does the Leader of the House agree that there should be a special debate next week about the case involving Tarek Sharief, a Libyan who is being held hostage in this country due to the misconduct of the Sussex police—a force which I do not particularly like, but that is another matter? Will that case be properly investigated in a debate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Summit Meeting (Malta) (29 Nov 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: Was it in order for you to call the right hon. Member for Tweeddale, Ettrick and Lauderdale (Mr. Steel) when he was not even standing? Is it not the case that in this place we are all equal but that some are more equal than others?

Points of Order (28 Nov 1989)

Mr Ronald Brown: On a point of order Mr. Speaker. Will you explain why Mr. Paddy Meehan's book cannot he mentioned in this place? He has a point of view that should be heard, whether you or I agree with him, and he has expressed his view in print. He says that he was fitted up by the security forces. He has a lot to say, and one should bear in mind the fact that he received a free pardon some years ago—
