Edward Balls: I have not given up, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am hoping that if the Chancellor turns up he may end up welcoming this proposal, overwhelmed by the clarity and objectivity of the analysis that I am about to put before the House.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Fiscal Commission (Appointments) (24 Jun 2014)

Patrick Harvie: The existence of the Council of Economic Advisers implies that the Government will, from time to time, accept their economic advice.

Philip Hammond: The so-called referendum that took place over the weekend was illegal. It did not meet any standards of objectivity, transparency or fairness and it was not properly conducted as a public referendum or election.

Lord Rosser: ...transform the defence procurement operation. If a future Government adopt the same approach, the report on the effectiveness of the new DE&S-plus-plus organisation will be crucial, as will be the objectivity of that future Government’s assessment of DE&S-plus-plus and their case for believing that the GOCO option would be more successful.
