Northern Ireland Act 1974 (2 Jul 1979)

Mr Reg Race: Will the Minister please inform the House whether the announcement that he has made regarding the Bennett report will extend its provisions to those who are held in custody in England under the Prevention of Terrorism Act and who, at the moment, are denied access to their solicitors? I am referring, in particular, to the case of Mr. Tom Macdonald who was detained in Liverpool yesterday while...

Scottish Parliament: European Treaty (19 Sep 2007)

Malcolm Chisholm: I say for Christopher Harvie's and David McLetchie's benefit that I voted yes in 1975. Margo MacDonald was concerned about qualified majority voting, as were the Tories. The extensions that apply to the UK are modest but sensible. For example, future decisions on emergency humanitarian aid to third countries will be taken in that way. The extensions are limited in comparison with Baroness...

Scottish Parliament: Forensic Science Services (23 Sep 2010)

Kenny MacAskill: Perhaps Mr Macdonald when he was a minister acted differently, but I would have thought that it is my duty to read all the recommendations in the report without having a closed mind and, thereafter, to make my decision having taken into account the views that Mr Macdonald and others have expressed. To do otherwise would be a dereliction of my duty. I require to read the report in full and to...

Lords Amendment (29 Nov 2000)

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston: My Lords, I beg to move that the House do not insist on their Amendment No. 28 to which the Commons have disagreed and do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 28C in lieu thereof. Moved, That the House do not insist on their Amendment No. 28 to which the Commons have disagreed and do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 28C in lieu thereof.--(Lord Macdonald of Tradeston.)

Lords Amendment (29 Nov 2000)

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston: My Lords, I beg to move that the House do not insist on their Amendment No. 29 to which the Commons have disagreed and do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 29C in lieu thereof. Moved, That the House do not insist on their Amendment No. 29 to which the Commons have disagreed and do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 29C in lieu thereof.--(Lord Macdonald of Tradeston.)

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Scottish Power (17 Dec 2014)

Jo Swinson: The initial report from Mr MacDonald was received on 17 July 2014 for review by the Insolvency Service. Further information including another more detailed report was received from him during September and October 2014, and these again have been reviewed by the Insolvency Service. The reports are confidential. The reports themselves do not require a direct response but I can confirm that...

Scottish Parliament: Waste Spreading Review (Update) (22 Apr 2015)

Richard Lochhead: As Angus MacDonald will be aware, regulations and a waste hierarchy are already in place. Incineration of sludge can be part of energy recovery as long as it takes place at appropriately equipped licensed facilities, but there is a hierarchy and incineration has a certain place in the pecking order, so other options are preferred for dealing with sludge. Nonetheless, I reassure Angus...

Scottish Parliament: Migrants (30 Jan 2008)

Jamie Stone: I congratulate Margo MacDonald on bringing the motion to us. I support its sentiments, on which I will comment briefly. One week after remembrance Sunday, a ceremony takes place at the Polish war memorial near Invergordon in my constituency. It sticks in my mind that, 10, 15 or 20 years ago, a small and dwindling band of very old veterans attended that ceremony, whereas it is now seriously...

MR. RAMSAY MacDONALD. (10 Nov 1937)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: beg to move, "That this House do now adjourn." Hon. Members in all parts of the House will have learned this morning with a sense of shock of the sudden and unexpected death, last night, on board ship, of Mr. Ramsay MacDonald. The House will desire to pay its last tribute this afternoon to the memory of an ex-Prime Minister, to one who was a Member of this House for nearly the space of a...

Scottish Parliament: Carillion (16 Jan 2018)

Keith Brown: I do not want to speculate too much on the very hypothetical situation of a second partner coming out of the contract. In relation to Carillion, we have undertaken the checks that Lewis Macdonald would expect us to undertake—not least when a situation was signalled by the profit warnings, which were public. We carry out such checks and, of course, we carry out checks on the contract in...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body (21 May 2003)

George Reid: As the result is valid, and as Robert Brown has received more votes than the total number of votes cast for the other candidates, I declare that Robert Brown is selected for appointment to the SPCB. That takes us to the fourth and—I hope—final round of voting, in which there are two candidates. They are Margo MacDonald and John Scott. The procedure is as before: members who wish to...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Enlargement) (21 Apr 2004)

Tavish Scott: I hear what Margo MacDonald says, but I simply repeat that the process that she seeks is exactly what we are doing. Given the forward looks that we carry out, the fact that Andy Kerr and other ministers appear before the European and External Relations Committee to give evidence on all those issues and the fact that the Parliament engages with the ambassadors of the incoming European Union...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (30 Apr 2009)

Stewart Stevenson: The differential price is the issue that we are debating. However, I am absolutely clear that Lewis Macdonald made that comparison. It is a comparison for which he will have to account to others. Lewis Macdonald encouraged us to follow the good example of the Prime Minister and the chancellor—two individuals who have led the United Kingdom into a position of debt greater than at any time in...

Scottish Parliament: Railways and Transport Safety Bill (20 Mar 2003)

Lord David Steel: We move to consideration of a second Sewel motion—motion S1M-4023, in the name of Iain Gray, on the Railways and Transport Safety Bill. I invite Lewis Macdonald to move it. Motion moved, That the Parliament endorses the principle of introducing alcohol and drug testing for mariners as set out in the Railways and Transport Safety Bill and agrees that the relevant provisions in the bill on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Oil and Gas Industry (27 Apr 1999)

Mr Calum MacDonald: The Government have set up the oil and gas industry task force under the chairmanship of the Minister for Energy and Industry, who is based at the Department of Trade and Industry, to examine the key issues facing the industry and to produce recommendations for action by the summer. My noble Friend Lord Macdonald, the Scottish Office Minister responsible for business and industry, is...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh Festivals (Effect of Immigration Policy) (30 May 2019)

Andy Wightman: First, I apologise for the fact that I need to leave the chamber at 1.30. I have a commitment to a meeting with a minister, and I know how busy ministers’ diaries are. I welcome this important debate, which was secured by Gordon MacDonald. I congratulate him on his research and his opening remarks, which spelled out the nature of the problem. As members are aware, and as Gordon MacDonald...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Mini-Olympics (10 Mar 2005)

Patricia Ferguson: I sympathise entirely with and take on board Margo MacDonald's point. In the context of something that Margo MacDonald said in her contribution, I was going to mention the fact that the University of Strathclyde, in conjunction with Glasgow City Council, is currently running a course for existing primary teachers to give them some PE training and allow them to become more skilled so that they...

Scottish Parliament: Prostitution (Public Places) (Scotland) Bill (28 Feb 2007)

Mike Rumbles: It is clear that the bill is about street prostitution. Read the bill. Margo MacDonald, Iain Smith and Mark Ballard oppose the bill because they prefer an entirely different approach. That is fair enough. Margo MacDonald has consistently raised management zones, which are not within the bill's scope. She said that the bill would be bad legislation, but I disagree: it will be good legislation...

Scottish Parliament: Palliative Care (12 Sep 2013)

Alex Salmond: Margo MacDonald introduced a bill on the issue, and I understand that she has pledged to do so again. I am sure that the Parliament will discuss the matter very seriously and as a matter of conscience, and that it will look at her proposals as they come forward. If Margo MacDonald is inviting me to say whether I have changed my mind on the matter, I have not, but all of us recognise its...
