Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: House Condition Survey (27 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that it will not be a housing condition survey which will fix those windows, it will be a joiner?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: House Condition Survey (27 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my hon. Friend recall that the Select Committee did not commend a house condition survey but recommended that the Government might give further consideration to it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Teachers' Dispute (26 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my right hon. Friend know that a number of parents cannot understand why the teachers, who have a just claim for more money, do not appear to be picking up last year's normal annual increment, and the forthcoming year's annual increment, which, I understand, is available without strings attached? Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that that is a sensible basis on which to start...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Student Grant (26 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Will my right hon. and learned Friend bear in mind that the best universities in Scotland have withdrawn from the National Union of Students? Because most of the English universities still adhere to the National Union of Students is no reason why we should not review yet again the amount of grants paid to the National Union of Students.

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General for Scotland: Lord Justice General (26 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my hon. and learned Friend believe that the Lord Justice General is aware that there is a long tradition of Labour Members bellyaching about social problems, a good example of which is warrant sales?

Orders of the Day — Peterhead Harbours (South Bay Development) Order Confirmation Bill (By Order): Peterhead Harbours (South Bay Development) (18 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Like the hon. Member for Gordon (Mr. Bruce), I am anxious to see both these harbours operating effectively, and I am even farther away from them than he is. A number of fishermen from the east use both harbours and I share with the hon. Member for Gordon the anxiety that there seems to have been a falling out between these harbour authorities. I agree with the hon. Gentleman that neither of...

Orders of the Day — Peterhead Harbours (South Bay Development) Order Confirmation Bill (By Order): Peterhead Harbours (South Bay Development) (18 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for having told me that he would refer to me. May I say to him, as briefly as I can, that I have never been bullied by anyone to do anything in the House which I do not want to do, and I do not propose to start now. I disapprove considerably of the repetition of loose tittle-tattle and of conversations imagined or overheard in the Lobby outside the Chamber....

Orders of the Day — British Leyland (18 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: The Chairman of Ways and Means set down private business for 7 o'clock. You have previously told the House, Mr. Speaker, that it is improper for a statement to be made on a point of order. So far, 13 minutes of the time of my hon. Friend the Member for Banff and Buchan (Mr. McQuarrie) has been taken up. Will he get injury time?

Opposition Day: Housing (Scotland) (12 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: The hon. Member for Glasgow, Cathcart (Mr. Maxton) has accused my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland of being dogmatic, but it was the hon. Gentleman who exposed his belief that only the public sector was competent to manage housing matters. We have shown that we are pragmatic in all our legislation, ranging from the Tenants' Rights, Etc (Scotland) Act 1980,...

Opposition Day: Housing (Scotland) (12 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: The hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudon (Mr. McKelvey) served with me on the Select Committee when we considered the problems of dampness in housing. Undoubtedly, those problems exist in the private sector. It is interesting that more has been done in the private sector than in the public sector to respond to the problems. For too long, public sector housing managers pooh-poohed council...

Opposition Day: Housing (Scotland) (12 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: The urban areas have had a proportionately higher grant. Does the hon. Gentleman want details?

Opposition Day: Housing (Scotland) (12 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: In the interests of brevity, I shall spare the hon. Gentleman the details. Even in terms of population, a disproportionate amount of housing support grant seems to be going to the conurbations. I hope that, just because there are some loudmouths in those areas, that will not be the only consideration in determining grant. Finally, I hope that the House will welcome the fact that the...

Opposition Day: Housing (Scotland) (12 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: rose—

Opposition Day: Housing (Scotland) (12 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: In the criteria which my hon. Friend has just mentioned, will he take specific account of the local authority which has already sold a substantial part of its property and has not been idle in regard to sales?

Orders of the Day — Safety at Sea Bill (7 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: In the interests of brevity, which would appear to be desirable, I shall not take up the remarks of the hon. Member for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Mr. Foulkes). I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Banff and Buchan (Mr. McQuarrie) not only on the objects of the Bill, which are admirable, but on the way in which he presented the Bill to the House today. His commitment to the...

Orders of the Day — Safety at Sea Bill (7 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: I think that the life jacket is a wee bit heavier than the galluses that I am wearing. However, the kind of braces that a fisherman wears to hold up his heavy waterproof trousers are similar to the size and shape of the life jacket to which the right hon. Gentleman is referring.

Orders of the Day — Safety at Sea Bill (7 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Has my hon. Friend had any discussions with Her Majesty's Coastguard on that part of the Bill and the way in which those signals might communicate with its co-ordination facilities and search and rescue functions?

Orders of the Day — Safety at Sea Bill (7 Feb 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: I agree with everything that my hon. Friend has said about getting rid of this hazard, and the clause is helpful, as it refers to debris from whatever source. Will he confirm, however, so that there is no misunderstanding in the oil industry, that there is already legislation which makes it illegal for oil industry people to leave debris after a wellhead has been closed off? There is firm...

Local Government Finance (Scotland) (29 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that the proposals for non-domestic ratepayers would be of immense significance and benefit to the business community in Scotland and would be recognised as such if it were not for the even more dramatic proposals for domestic ratepayers? Does he agree that the alliance party's proposals on non-domestic rates could help hypermarkets and city centre...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Steel Industry (29 Jan 1986)

Mr Barry Henderson: Does my hon. Friend agree with the ISTC that Ravenscraig is of strategic importance to the Scottish economy? No good is done to that by continually suggesting that the future of Ravenscraig is dependent on Gartcosh. Does he also agree that the wholly unparliamentary demonstration after the meeting of the Scottish Grand Committee in Edinburgh on 20 January will do no good to the cause of...
