Bill Presented: Adjournment (Easter and May Day) (20 Mar 1978)

Mr Willie Hamilton: .... It is still not clear what happened on that occasion. Government supporters choose to dismiss the kind of muckraking which we have seen in the Pencourt File. We prefer to deal with more important and immediate matters which concern not only our constituencies but the nation as a whole. I want to come back right away to the problems raised by my hon. Friends who represent Merseyside...

Prayers: Employment (Covvdenbeath — Lochgelly) (6 Aug 1976)

Mr Willie Hamilton: ...first subject for debate today. I had mixed feelings because I would rather that the need to raise the matter did not exist. I believe that this is a problem which is troubling the people of Scotland, and, I suspect, of every other part of the United Kingdom, more than any other problem facing us. I do not believe that they are troubled as much about the machinery of government or the...

A 30-bed unit at the Adamson Hospital, Cupar, is under construction and is expected to be available for use early in 1976. The planning of 60-bed units at Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy is in hand. A 90-bed unit at Dunfermline, which will improve the West Fife...

Railways (Scotland) (2 Nov 1973)

Mr Keith Speed: I thank the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) for raising this subject. First, I confirm his understanding of my letter concerning Fife about the new set-up under the Local Government (Scotland) Act. I am not sure I agree with him completely when he says the road lobby is too powerful. He gave the impression of a struggling rail lobby. He was present for the debate in July, as...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Unemployment) (19 Nov 1971)

Mr Willie Hamilton: The hon. Gentleman has no right to make a non-partisan point; that is not what this House is for. That is not what I am here for, anyway. I am here to get this Government out and mine in. No doubt my hon. Friend the Member for Greenock on the Front Bench, will be able to answer better than I, but I know that, by tradition, there has never been the proportion of private house building in...

Orders of the Day — Michael Colliery, West Fife (Closure) (10 Jul 1969)

Mr Willie Hamilton: ...Michael Colliery, in my constituency, in September, 1967, was a disaster of the greatest magnitude not only in terms of the lives lost, but also because, overnight, over 2,000 men lost their jobs, and that in an area already finding great difficulty in providing a sufficient number of jobs, especially for its male population. It was a situation which no planner or planning mechanism could...

Orders of the Day — Vehicle Testing Station, Dundee (15 Dec 1967)

Mr Peter Doig: I have received very strong protests from the Dundee Corporation, many Dundee firms and the Dundee Chamber of Commerce about the lack of siting for a vehicle testing station in Dundee. The Dundee Chamber of Commerce represents well over a thousand firms, including all the largest firms, not only in the City of Dundee, but stretching as far North as Montrose and as far South of Glenrothes....

Orders of the Day — Supply: Scotland (Industry and Employment) (5 Jul 1967)

Mr William Ross: ...not all that much time. There was not a speech from the Opposition benches in which I was not mentioned, but I did not seek to interrupt. The right hon. Gentleman got all these things wrong. He and others referred to new industry coming in their days. It was all right for them to have new industries coming in but it was another matter, they said, for us. The hon. Member for Moray and...

This figure represented 36 per cent. of the total number of males and females registered as unemployed in Scotland at the same date. I am not sure precisely what area the hon.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Department of Health for Scotland. (24 Jun 1937)

Mr William Watson: ...themselves with water. They embarked on several schemes. The coming of the Admiralty dockyard to Rosyth compelled the Dunfermline district committee to face the problem of a huge water supply and later the ratepayers in the Kirkcaldy district had also to face up to the problem of supplying themselves with water. To-day the two schemes which were formerly under the control of the...
