Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Royal High School (7 Jul 1993)

Mr Raymond Robertson: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, given that the Crown Office is leaving the old Royal High school, that it costs £150,000 per annum to maintain and keep secure, and that it was used only three times last year, surely the time has come for the Government to dispose of the building, which has become a monument to and a relic of the failed and discredited policy of the Labour party? Does...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Raymond Robertson: If the hon. Gentleman can contain himself, I shall discuss Westhill later. It was breath-taking arrogance on the part of the hon.

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Raymond Robertson: When the Scottish people watch this debate and the arrayed masses opposite, is it any wonder that they consistently vote against a Scottish Assembly?

Those who talk about Westhill seem to forget that it has no...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Raymond Robertson: I am about to do so. The people of Westhill look to the city and their focus is the city, as I am sure the hon. Member for Gordon (Mr. Bruce) would agree. The most recent figures produced by Grampian regional council show that, of a resident and economically active population of 3,200, some 2,200 work in Aberdeen. The inclusion of Westhill in the city boundaries is a welcome and long overdue...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Water (Scotland) (14 Jul 1993)

Mr Raymond Robertson: Last Thursday, Labour Members responded, as they are doing now, with gesture politics, showing their inability to grasp the issues of the day or contribute to the debate in a meaningful way.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local Government (27 Oct 1993)

Mr Raymond Robertson: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the so-called policy of non-co-operation adopted by the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities has had as many relaunches and comebacks as Frank Sinatra?
