Scottish Parliament: Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundaries Order 1999 (26 Apr 2000)

Richard Lochhead: Lewis Macdonald says that the Rural Affairs Committee reached its conclusions without consultation, but he was present when the committee took evidence from the fishing organisations and the Scottish Executive.

Civil Service (Communists and Fascists) (25 Mar 1948)

Mr William Gallacher: They elected Sam Watson, but they often elect people who do not always represent their best interests.

There is a warning which I...
