Adjournment (Whitsuntide) (25 May 1972)

Mr Reginald Paget: ...bringing us? Is it the peace between order and disorder? Is it the peace between the police and the criminal? That is just the peace which in fact they are said to be bringing us. One of them, Mrs. Docherty, said: We told him we do not want the IRA out of Derry. They are our boys. We are not here to shop them. We are told—I think Father O'Neill says this—that we are to have a...

Orders of the Day — RENT BILL [Lords] ( 8 Jul 1974)

Mr Reginald Freeson: ...consider the rent officer's assessment too high. I know that there are those who say that the Bill will bring about an immediate reduction in the number of private lettings available and thus only lead to a worsening of the country's housing situation. Before this debate is over at least one hon. Member will quote the Francis Committee, which recommended against the extension of security...

Orders of the Day — RETIREMENT OF TEACHERS (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords] (25 Oct 1976)

Mr Teddy Taylor: ...are many questions for the Government to answer before we give the Bill a Second Reading. There is no doubt that this is a panic Bill. I am in sympathy with the General Secretary of the SSTA, Mr. Docherty, who said in a circular to all hon. Members representing Scottish constituencies that the proper retirement age for members of any profession should be a matter for objective study,...

New Clause 2: Procedure for Dismissal of Teachers ( 8 Jun 1981)

Mr John Mackay: I have some sympathy with the concluding remarks of the hon. Member for Aberdeen, North (Mr. Hughes). It is one of the regrettable results of this debate and of the three or four weeks leading up to it that some unfortunate comments have been made about section 88. However, that is not the fault of my hon. Friend the Member for Renfrewshire, East (Mr. Stewart). It is much more the fault of...

London ( 1 Jul 1983)

Frank Dobson: ...a man charged with the murder of a person involved in prostitution in Kings Cross was released because the prosecution witnesses were missing. I think you may be referring to the case of Mr. John Docherty"— Lord Elton is obviously a very acute fellow— who was shot dead on 18th November 1980, and the trial of the man accused of his murder which began on 8th June 1982. I will now deal in...

Crossbows (Restrictions) (11 Jun 1986)

Mr Donald Dixon: ..., Drake (Miss Fookes), who has been foremost in the fight to have something done about these weapons. The matter was drawn vividly to my attention last August when a constituent, Mr. Richard Docherty, brought to my office in Jarrow a crossbow which had been bought in a hobby shop in South Shields by his 15-year-old brother, Adrian. On seeing it, Mr. Docherty immediately took the weapon...

Opposition Day: Financial Markets ( 5 Nov 1987)

Mr Pat Wall: ...boom which has been labelled by some economists in their peculiar jargon as a growth recession. Perhaps Chancellors of the Exhequer, economists and I might find that term better explained by Tommy Docherty. When he was manager of Manchester City he was asked to explain his feelings after five successive defeats. Bold Tommy said, "We are rolling along on the crest of a slump." They were...

Orders of the Day — Mr. Andrew Docherty ( 6 Nov 1991)

Mr David Hinchliffe: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise the case of the late Mr. Andrew Docherty. I have two purposes in raising his case. The first is to draw attention to what I and others believe to be clear injustices in the way in which he was treated before his death and the second is to expose the fact that the injustices faced by Mr. Docherty affect many others in similar circumstances, and are a...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations, etc) Bill (18 Apr 1996)

Ian Paisley: ...be a committee to examine local government in Northern Ireland. We have many problems. The forum should continue with its work, and then feed the results to the negotiators. That, surely, would lead to consensus—the consensus that has already been achieved by committees. There is much work to be done. The main thrust of the policy of both the SDLP and the Dublin Government, however, has...

Disqualifications Bill ( 6 Nov 2000)

Lord Cope of Berkeley: ...thing. I do not believe that either my noble friend or I is concerned to push the precise wording on the Government. This is a very important point. I referred earlier to the possibility of Mr Pat Docherty standing in the West Tyrone by-election and subsequently for Donegal. The activities of Mr Docherty are extremely well documented in the public record as a leading member of the...

Orders of the Day — Export Control Bill ( 9 Jul 2001)

Kevan Jones: ...and the rebuilding of communities, and unemployment is falling for the first time in a generation. In Craghead, a community that lost its pit in the 1960s and its clothing factory in the 1980s, is leading the way in community regeneration. The Craghead partnership, formed in 1996 by local people, is making a real difference. With the support of funding from the lottery, Europe and the...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection ( 1 May 2002)

Lord David Steel: We give a warm welcome to the Very Rev Monsignor Henry Docherty, the general secretary of the Roman Catholic Bishops Conference of Scotland, who will lead our time for reflection this afternoon.

Bus Security (22 Oct 2002)

Brian H Donohoe: ...that have come to my notice are equally worrying. The bus of a female driver ran out of fuel in an isolated area at 11.30 pm. Youths broke every window of the bus while the driver was inside, leading to her being off work for more then eight weeks due to stress. Another driver was slashed in the arm for asking for the correct fare from passengers boarding his bus. Another was assaulted by...

Barwick in Elmet Hill Fort (10 Jul 2007)

Colin Burgon: ...am doing my bit for them this evening. On those trips, the children are made aware of the need to value this wonderful, historic site in the years ahead. The work of the school, under the excellent leadership of head teacher Peter Docherty, is vital in ensuring that future generations of villagers appreciate and value what is in their midst. I should also mention the doughty workers of...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection ( 7 Nov 2007)

Marian Docherty (St David's High School, Dalkeith): Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. It is my pleasure to talk to you about a project we have been involved in for the past few years. We call it working for our world, or WOW. St David's high school welcomes pupils from across the world. That is one reason why we wanted to work with Bangalore in India. There is an amazing organisation...

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Bridge Tolls (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (15 Nov 2007)

Alex Johnstone: ...that they have their own independent income through the toll booths—could be undermined. I therefore seek assurances from the minister that the bill will not mark the start of a process that will lead to the removal of the bridge boards' powers to make decisions about the long-term well-being of the structures in their charge. I am aware that an attempt has been made—I believe that it...

Scottish Parliament: VE Day (65th Anniversary) (12 May 2010)

Stewart Maxwell: ...war two will be pensioners. That is why it is important that we do not lose the stories and experiences of people who lived through those traumatic times. For example, in the west of Scotland, John Docherty, who lost seven family members during the Clydebank blitz, remembers tables in the streets loaded with home baking, which he had not seen for a number of years. Hugh McIntyre of Port...

Bills Presented: Energy Efficiency (30 Jun 2010)

Thomas Docherty: I am grateful for that intervention, as it sums up entirely the correct decision taken on the basis of getting good value for the taxpayer because of the amount of revenue raised. That leads me to my next point-that there is a myth about how long it would take to build new nuclear power stations. It does not actually take 10 or 15 years to build nuclear power stations. Westinghouse has an...
