Scottish Parliament: Taxation (14 Dec 2016)

Murdo Fraser: I am so disappointed in Neil Findlay’s intervention. I have been following the debate at Westminster very closely. Even Jeremy Corbyn, and John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor—heroes of Mr Findlay—support the increase in the threshold that has been proposed by the chancellor, Philip Hammond. It seems to be the case that Scottish Labour’s criticism of Jeremy Corbyn is that he is too...

Scottish Parliament: Taxation (14 Dec 2016)

Murdo Fraser: As Jackie Baillie knows, Jeremy Corbyn supports the Tory chancellor’s increase in the threshold for the 40 per cent rate. Does she think that Jeremy Corbyn is too right wing, too?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate of Income Tax (5 Nov 2015)

Murdo Fraser: At the weekend, the Scottish Labour Party of Jeremy Corbyn announced its plans to raise taxes on the Scottish people. The Scottish Conservatives will vigorously oppose any moves to tax families or businesses in Scotland more highly than those in the rest of the United Kingdom. Where does the First Minister stand on the issue? Will she join us and rule out higher taxes on families and...

Scottish Parliament: Employment (30 Sep 2015)

Murdo Fraser: ...learn that the Labour Party is able to agree on at least one subject that it is prepared to have a debate on. This is the first time that we have had a debate in the chamber from Labour in its new Corbynite clothes, and I look forward very much to hearing how the Corbyn approach will be reflected in the Labour speeches this afternoon. Perhaps we had a flavour of that from Jackie Baillie...

Scottish Parliament: Employment (30 Sep 2015)

Murdo Fraser: I am sure that Mr Findlay will reflect on Jackie Baillie’s desire to move the debate on from Jeremy Corbyn as quickly as possible. I do not think that that will stand her in good stead. It will do Jackie Baillie’s prospects in the Corbyn Labour Party no good at all when I say that I agree with much of her speech. We certainly agree that the Scottish Government needs to be more ambitious...

Scottish Parliament: Employment (30 Sep 2015)

Murdo Fraser: a sad indictment of the Government’s record that, far from improving under its watch, the situation is actually deteriorating. Perhaps I can close by agreeing with the Labour Party—even the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour Party—that the Scottish Government’s focus needs to be on improving educational standards. I have pleasure in moving the amendment in my name. I move amendment...
