Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Teachers (Dispute) (29 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the wisest decision of the EIS in the past year has been to hold its annual conference in St. Andrews next week? Is he aware that I will be addressing that conference? Is there any message that he would like me to give to the Scottish teachers on that occasion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General for Scotland: Abusive Language and Threatening Behaviour (29 Jan 1986)

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General for Scotland: Abusive Language and Threatening Behaviour (29 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that in some sections of society there seems to be an idea that people in positions of responsibility, such as teachers and policemen, are fair game for the abuse referred to in my question? Does my hon. and learned Friend agree that the opposite is the case? We, as a society, put those people in a particular position of responsibility, and abuse of them is...

Mr Barry Henderson: rose—

Opposition Day: Gartcosh Steel Mill (23 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: I disagree with the hon. Gentleman's last comments.

Orders of the Day — Rate Support Grant (Scotland) (22 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: The right hon. Member for Western Isles (Mr. Stewart) said that local authorities are at their wits' end to maintain services. I wonder whether that stands up to examination. When the Labour Government were in power, both manpower levels and spending were lower than they are now. During this Government's period of office, local authorities have increased their spending in real terms, and most...

Orders of the Day — Rate Support Grant (Scotland) (22 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my right hon. and learned Friend recall the words of the distinguished civil servant who gave evidence to the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs in explaining the rate support grant system to Scottish Members of Parliament? When it was put to him that these were subjective judgments, he pointed out that these were objective criteria which, on occasion, might be applied subjectively.

European Community (Fisheries) (16 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: From what has been said so far, I think that the House will agree with the Minister's assessment that this year's settlement is satisfactory. It was encouraging to hear the right hon. Member for the Western Isles (Mr. Stewart) and the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull, West (Mr. Randall) agree with that in general. From my point of view, the most satisfactory aspect was the maintenance of...

European Community (Fisheries) (16 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: The Minister who is to reply to the debate represents a constituency in the Highlands and Islands Development Board area. Those of us who are close to that area feel strongly about some of the unfortunate positions that arise as a result of the board's activities. I have heard rumours that the board and the Sea Fish Industry Authority are now beginning to get their act together. Until now,...

Fisheries Council (19 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that of the many things that are helpful to fishermen in the statement, the one that Scottish fishermen will most particularly welcome is that concerning the pout box, which is helpful to many Scottish fishermen in the North sea? What can my right hon. Friend do to stiffen the back of the European Community in its negotiations with Norway, which are of great...

Business of the House (19 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the otherwise excellent report by the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs was marred by its concluding paragraph, which did not flow from an objective view of the evidence? Will my right hon. Friend make arrangements whereby hon. Members may be encouraged to read not only the report but the evidence to the Committee? If that were done, we would not hear the...

Business of the House (19 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: No—it has been published.

Business of the House (12 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind the fact that if the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs had reported to the House it would have intensified the argument for a debate on the Scottish steel industry? However, as the Committee, led by the hon. Member for Monklands, West (Mr. Clarke) decided not to report to the House, it diminishes the feeling that the House should urgently debate this...

Select Committee on Scottish Affairs (11 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: I seek your guidance, Mr. Speaker. When unsubstantiated and inaccurate charges are made from the Opposition Front Bench, what opportunities are open to hon. Members to put the correct case and the true version?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland (11 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. Is it not the case that whether or not a Select Committee reports to the House, discussion of what took place during the Committee's deliberations is a matter of privacy?

Oral Answers to Questions — BSC Ravenscraig (11 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Is my right hon. friend aware that many people in Scotland believe that the real guarantee of the future of Ravenscraig is the word of the Secretary of State and of the Prime Minister—[Interruption.]—and that attempts to link in other factors to the future of Ravenscraig may be damaging to Scottish interests?

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General for Scotland: Travelling People (11 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Notwithstanding that, does my hon. and learned Friend agree that the original toleration policy was produced to meet the needs of legitimate travelling people of long standing and repute? Nowadays there are increasingly large numbers of people taking advantage of this policy, for whom it was not designed. In view of that, will my hon. and learned Friend hold discussions with his right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General for Scotland: Complaints Against the Police (11 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my hon. and learned Friend agree that although it is important to follow up in great detail complaints made against the police, that task is made much more difficult when those complaints are frivolous and malicious? Will he consider ways in which to discourage such malicious complaints against the police?

Rate Support Grant (Scotland) (3 Dec 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: Many ratepayers will welcome the fact that my right hon. Friend is maintaining downward pressure on the expenditure of local authorities, but will he recognise that the combination of the distribution formulae and the way in which the individual authorities establish their resources, on top of the perverse effects of revaluation, sometimes results in responsible authorities receiving less...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill (28 Nov 1985)

Mr Barry Henderson: The hon. Gentleman has refused to tell the House whether his party would take away the right to buy. He now sounds as if he is against the improvements grants that the Government approve of. Will he take them as well?
