Orders of the Day — Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Bill: Imprisonment for Life on Further Conviction for Certain Offences (20 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. I draw your attention to Question 306 on today's Order Paper. I believe that a forged question has been put down in my name. I have discussed the matter with the Table Office, and the signature on the question looks like mine, but it is not. The terms of the question are not mine either. I take great exception to that. Perhaps it is an end-of-term prank,...

Orders of the Day — Police Bill [Lords]: Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations) (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I shall be fairly brief. I open my remarks by saying how much Conservative Members owe my right hon. and learned Friend for the way in which he has filled the difficult position of Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. We have heard much about the forum, but it is a tribute to him that the forum has been established. I also want to pay tribute to the British armed services, which have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Inward Investment (19 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the flow of inward investment to the Scottish electronics industry has been a story of success? Does he further agree that the industry depends on the movement of components and products, and that that could be helped if fifth freedom rights were granted to Prestwick airport? Will he have a word with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport?

Prayers: Tariff Rebate Subsidy (Northern Isles) (12 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Prayers: Tariff Rebate Subsidy (Northern Isles) (12 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: My right hon. and learned Friend emphasised the involvement of the private sector and the importance of competition—which I welcome—which was demonstrated by the 18 bids that came in. However, if factors have changed, it would not be unreasonable to give any of those bidders a further opportunity to be involved, particularly in relation to the comments on ERDF. Will he give further...

Prayers: Tariff Rebate Subsidy (Northern Isles) (12 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Mr. McKelvey) said that this was something of an historic occasion, in that it was the first time that a report by the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs had been debated in the House. However, I believe that the Select Committee has created history since 1992. It was not constituted before 1992, and there was a gap. The hon. Gentleman is the...

Prayers: Tariff Rebate Subsidy (Northern Isles) (12 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I do not disagree with any of the hon. Gentleman's comments. Had I been a Member of Parliament before 1992, I should have wanted the Select Committee to be reconstituted, and I have worked pretty assiduously within the Committee since being elected. What happened before 1992 is another matter entirely. I want to say to the hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun that recently we carried out...

Prayers: Tariff Rebate Subsidy (Northern Isles) (12 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Gentleman wants to intervene, but it would be better to let me run. A start point for contract conditions on block grant might be a maximum freight charge of £5.15 plus an allowance within the contract for an X-factor increase year by year of the inflation rate. That would alleviate fears of predatory pricing, which would drive competition out of the marketplace and leave P and OSF...

Clause 9: Rates of Air Passenger Duty (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I have asked my hon. Friend for further clarification on that point, and I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comment. It seems to me that a percentage rate would be more appropriate than a flat rate. I have no difficulty with the idea of airport taxes, as they seem to apply in every other country, and, as the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Wallace) said, our rate is one of the...

Clause 9: Rates of Air Passenger Duty (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I do not entirely identify with all the issues of the islands, so I leave it to others to make representations about them. It amazes me that there are not more hon. Members from the central belt of Scotland in the Chamber tonight, because the tax has a significant effect on flights from central Scotland. One of the Government's recent successes has been the introduction of a range of...

Clause 9: Rates of Air Passenger Duty (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: That is an interesting point, but it is my understanding that, if people change airlines, they lose that option.

Clause 9: Rates of Air Passenger Duty (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I am relieved to hear that, because travel agents in my constituency certainly felt that on a journey from, say, Prestwick to London, connecting with an onward flight to the United States, two charges would be levied. If that is not so, I have little to argue with my hon. Friend about.

Points of Order (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: On a point of order, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: rose—

Points of Order (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: No, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: Bearing in mind Column 41 of yesterday's Hansard, the comment on the large sums of money paid to a company with which the hon. Member for Cunninghame, North (Mr. Wilson) is associated, the fact that he has returned to the Chamber, and your earlier comment, Madam Speaker, would it not be in order for him to apologise to the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: To ask the Prime Minister if he will list his official engagements for Tuesday 11 March. [18066]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my right hon. Friend welcome, as I do, the high level of investment in the electronics industry in central Scotland? Does he recognise the importance to that industry of manoeuvrability of components and products? Will he consider the requirements of fifth freedoms, which could benefit that industry, particularly by using Prestwick airport as a gateway?

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Public Responsibility For Social Justice (10 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I understand that we could well have heard the valedictory speech of the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn and Lochaber (Sir R. Johnston). It is a privilege to follow him, and I congratulate him on his 32 years in the House and the way in which he has conducted himself throughout. The humour in his speeches—certainly in those that I have heard in the past five years—is always welcome. I...

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Public Responsibility For Social Justice (10 Mar 1997)

Mr Phil Gallie: I hope that will not be the case, and that the hon. Gentleman may return to another place, but that is beyond my knowledge and power. I am quite sure that all hon. Members join me in congratulating him on his 32 years in the House. I take issue with the hon. Gentleman on several points. He referred to my right hon. Friend Baroness Thatcher. Countries throughout the world have taken her...
