Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution (11 Jan 2005)

Alan Reid: What devolution issues she has considered since 30 November 2004.

Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution (11 Jan 2005)

Alan Reid: The Advocate-General has said that 67 cases were notified to her. Will she tell hon. Members the number of cases in which she acted and the length of time that she spent doing so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Gaelic (8 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: What plans he has to support the Gaelic language.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Gaelic (8 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: I welcome the Scottish Parliament's Gaelic Language (Scotland) Bill, which will require Scottish public bodies to prepare development plans about how they plan to use the Gaelic language in carrying out their functions. However, Scottish Ministers and the Scottish Parliament have no say over how UK public bodies operate in Scotland. Will the Government ensure that when UK public bodies such...

Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution/Human Rights (8 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: What devolution issues she has dealt with since 11 January.

Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution/Human Rights (8 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: In response to my question at the last Advocate-General's Question Time, the hon. and learned Lady told the House that she had intervened in only one or two of the cases notified to her. As she is soon to depart voluntarily, will she advise the House whether there is enough work in her office to justify a full-time ministerial salary?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Risks (Urban Areas) (10 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: I think that we would all accept that the root cause of a lot of the flooding is climate change. Given that the United States undoubtedly puts the most greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and that we are supposed to have a special relationship with the United States, what efforts are the Government making to—

Identity Cards Bill (Programme) (No. 2) (10 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: My hon. Friend is quite right: there is simply not enough time to discuss all the important amendments that have been tabled. For example, between 3.45 and 4.30, there are three sets to consider, but a vote on the clauses that finish at 3.45 would take out a quarter of an hour, and a vote on the use of information from the register would take another quarter of an hour. Even if the debate on...

Identity Cards Bill: Clause 31 — Tampering with the Register etc. (10 Feb 2005)

Alan Reid: My hon. Friend makes a powerful case against the Bill. He mentioned inconvenience. My constituents, many of whom live on islands, will be faced with great inconvenience if they are forced to go to Glasgow to get biometrics taken for their ID cards. The Secretary of State for Scotland has said that the Home Office is considering a mobile facility, but that will take ages and it will cost a...

Subsidised Ferries (EU Regulations) (2 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: I thank the Speaker for selecting this important topic for debate this afternoon. I know that other hon. Members who represent Scottish constituencies that have ferry ports will want to catch your eye, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is obvious that ferry services are important for islanders. The islands and peninsulas of the west of Scotland have been served for many years by the state-owed...

Subsidised Ferries (EU Regulations) (2 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I was not aware that the Greeks were still not complying, although I knew that they had a derogation until 2004. The measure is completely impractical for the unprofitable routes in the west of Scotland. In the second half of this year, the UK will again hold the EU presidency. My purpose in requesting the debate was to draw the...

Subsidised Ferries (EU Regulations) (2 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: The Minister correctly said that the problem was article 4(1), but surely there must be a mechanism by which European law can be changed. The Government are a big player in Europe. Can they not go to Europe and say that they want the article changed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: If he will list his official engagements for Wednesday 9 March.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: Is the Prime Minister aware that the average house price on the Isle of Mull has soared to £125,000, thus forcing many local people out of the housing market and into caravans and chalets? That is typical of many rural parts of the country. The Prime Minister could help by adopting the fully costed Liberal Democrat policy of abolishing stamp duty on houses that cost less than £150,000. Will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution (15 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: What devolution issues she has considered since 8 February.

Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution (15 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: If circumstances arose in which the Advocate-General believed that Scottish Ministers were not taking the actions required by European Union law, would she advise the Secretary of State to use his powers under section 58 of the Scotland Act 1998 to compel Scottish Ministers to take a certain course of action?

Analogue Television Switch-off (15 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Northavon (Mr. Webb) on securing the debate. It is on a subject that I, like him, am coming to for the first time and that, clearly, will be of enormous importance to all our constituents in a few years. In my area, Scottish Television is not due for conversion until 2009. That is two years after the guinea pigs in the borders. However, because of...

Analogue Television Switch-off (15 Mar 2005)

Alan Reid: That is an interesting point. The failure of equipment to work is likely to be greatest in those scattered rural areas that cannot currently receive Freeview because the equipment cannot be tested in advance. For those in many parts of my constituency, the nearest TV engineer will be 20 or 30 miles away. With a flood of calls all happening at once, it will be a big problem for TV engineers to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause 7 — Road Fuel Regulator (6 Jul 2005)

Alan Reid: High oil prices are clearly causing a serious problem in rural areas, especially in the islands where the price of petrol at the pumps is horrendous. Unfortunately, however, I do not think that the new clause will tackle the problem. When the hon. Member for Dundee, East (Stewart Hosie) proposed it, he admitted that it was less than perfect. I think that was SNP speak for "It won't actually...
