Orders of the Day — Clause 1: Age of Retirement of Teachers (3 Nov 1976)

Mr Hector Monro: ...to go. Our first demand must be for a clear statement on what went wrong with the computer in the Scottish Office which resulted in the House and no doubt Ministers themselves being completely misled. I cannot imagine that they would have introduced the Bill if they had known what they were talking about. When we have a great economic crisis and many other problems to deal with, it is...

Opposition Day: Financial Markets (5 Nov 1987)

Mr Pat Wall: ...with the events of 1929. It is true that the 1929 collapse was preceded by a drop in investment and production, and the recent collapse occurred during a relative boom—a boom which has been labelled by some economists in their peculiar jargon as a growth recession. Perhaps Chancellors of the Exhequer, economists and I might find that term better explained by Tommy Docherty. When he was...

Barwick in Elmet Hill Fort (10 Jul 2007)

Colin Burgon: ...she cannot believe her luck in pulling the plum subject of the hill fort in Barwick in Elmet. If she can restrain herself, I will explain a few things about it. I know the Minister to be well travelled and knowledgeable, and although I am not usually a betting man, I am willing to bet in this case that she has never been to Elmet and that before today she had no knowledge whatsoever of the...

Scottish Parliament: Abolition of Bridge Tolls (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (15 Nov 2007)

Alex Johnstone: ...a Government grant, I am worried that the confidence may not exist to allow the boards to borrow, should there be a crisis that requires to be dealt with. One of the key parts of the process that led to the decision to abolish the tolls being taken was the toll impact study. It might have been the position of someone such as me to try to rubbish the toll impact study, but I have no...

Adjournment (Whitsun): Foreign Affairs and Defence (26 May 2010)

Thomas Docherty: ...in Europe, participating in the Cup Winners cup in 1961-62. West Fife has also produced some fine individual international footballers over the years, particularly Hill of Beath's Jim Baxter, who led Scotland to the crown of real world champions in 1967, and Townhill's Billy Liddell, who played almost 500 times for Liverpool, scoring 215 goals. Only last week, I was present at the...

Royal Commission (London): Clause 1 — Referendum on the alternative vote system (12 Oct 2010)

Thomas Docherty: ...papers were spoilt. I would, however, like to draw the Committee's attention to some of the representations made by a number of individuals and organisations to the Scottish Affairs Committee-led by my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow South West (Mr Davidson)-which, unlike the Deputy Prime Minister, actually bothered to ask for input on the date of the referendum from the people of...

Armed Forces Bill (10 Jan 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...of having aircraft carriers with no aircraft. Even if the French get their aircraft carrier to work, we will go a decade without any fast jets because of the folly of Treasury decisions. That has led to communities facing a great deal of uncertainty regarding base closures. Having attended some of last year's debates in the House-as did the hon. Member for North Wiltshire (Mr Gray)-I have...

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment): Clause 18 — Status of EU law dependent on continuing statutory basis (11 Jan 2011)

Michael Connarty: ..., and clause 18 is the biggest joke in it. It is a silly Bill. As we have already heard, it gives us no ability to change anything. My hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) quoted a Member who said today that at least the clause did no harm. In fact, it does nothing positive at all. I respect the hon. Member for Aldridge-Brownhills (Mr Shepherd), who has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: HMS Illustrious (14 Mar 2011)

Thomas Docherty: I am sure the House will agree that the fact that HMS Illustrious is coming back into service ahead of schedule is a testament to the professionalism of the work force and the management, led by Mike Pettigrew. Will the Minister find the time to come to the dockyard to see HMS Illustrious before she sets sail, so that he can see yet again why the best place for the refit and refurbishment of...

Financial Services (Regulation of Derivatives): New Clause 9 — Rail passenger services (15 Mar 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...It is also responsible for funding the building of new railways in Scotland, and it is worth noting that a number of new railway lines opened in Scotland between 1999 and 2007 thanks to the Labour-led Scottish Executive. The Airdrie to Bathgate line and the Larkhall to Milngavie line are two obvious examples. It is disappointing that the SNP Government saw fit to cancel the Glasgow airport...

Standards and Privileges (16 May 2011)

Kevin Barron: ...commissioner commented, it can never be acceptable to submit misleading documents to those charged with overseeing public finances. As this case shows, the right hon. Member’s desire for secrecy led him to act in a way that was not compatible with the standards expected of an MP. Whatever the motive, I do not think that is acceptable. Now I will address the concerns of those who think...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: General Matters (24 May 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...the Government’s strategic defence and security review and the refitting and basing of the surface and submarine fleets. Two Type 23 frigates, HMS Somerset and HMS Richmond, which had been scheduled for refitting at Rosyth dockyard, are now to be refitted at Devonport. I do not oppose the move—after all, Devonport has a large hole in its order book thanks to the decisions of this...

Postal Services Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 27 — General authorisation to provide postal services (9 Jun 2011)

Michael Connarty: ...of the CWU parliamentary liaison group, which worked together with the CWU and the Post Office, was asked to participate in the Committee considering this Bill. I might ask the Minister some detailed questions that he could have answered before if I had been granted access to his knowledge and aspirations in Committee. That position will have to be explained by the business managers—not...

Armed Forces Bill (Programme) (No. 2): New Clause 1 — Closure or realignment of Armed Forces bases (14 Jun 2011)

Angus Robertson: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty). I have listened closely to his arguments, and I found them tremendously persuasive. When discussing his new clause and mine, the question we must ask is whether the way in which the Ministry of Defence deals with base closures or realignments is adequate. Is the way in which the criteria are...

Bail (Amendment): New Clause 1 — Medical insurance (pensioner tax relief) (28 Jun 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...Benches. At a time when there is a real-terms cut in NHS spending—I must correct the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone)—because the promised increase in funding under this Conservative-led Government is lower than inflation, whether using the consumer prices index or the retail prices index, these Conservative Members propose that we should take money, which Government Front...

National Policy Statements (Renewable Energy Infrastructure): Draft Financial Services Bill (Joint Committee) (18 Jul 2011)

Thomas Docherty: Obviously, Mr Speaker, the hon. Member for Cambridge (Dr Huppert) led me down a very tempting path, and I will do my best not to be drawn down it again. The draft Bill is a phenomenally large document. I am sure that on your evenings off, Mr Speaker, when you are drinking a glass of mulled wine, you will have had a chance to flick through its contents. It is a wide-ranging Bill that seeks,...

Prayers: Clause 1 — Duties of the Secretary of State (9 Sep 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...the Government’s publication of a draft Bill and their presentation of that Bill, and it is hugely regrettable that that does not happen now. I take the word of some of my more esteemed and knowledgeable colleagues who have served in earlier Parliaments, but I gather from them that it was pretty much standard practice. There would be a period of—wait for it—consultation on the...

Immigration (Stranraer/Cairnryan) (22 Nov 2011)

Russell Brown: ...he has turned up this evening—has visited the Galloway ports, despite imposing major cuts on them. I come now to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty). It is worth mentioning the role of the SNP Scottish Government in this. Although they have been quick to join the chorus of criticism of the UK Government’s cuts, they themselves...

Carbon Capture and Storage (Scotland) (17 Jan 2012)

Eilidh Whiteford: I congratulate the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) on securing the debate. I am rather disappointed that he chose to squander his opportunity today; instead of asking the Government about progress on the plans for carbon capture and storage in the UK, he preferred to take pot shots at the First Minister, who not only is not here but does not have the power to make...

Bill Presented — Financial Services: Strategic Defence and Security Review (26 Jan 2012)

Thomas Docherty: I am most grateful to the Minister. He is obviously very clever, because he has led me straight on to my next point, which is about the replacement for the Invincible class, the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier. He perhaps forgot to mention that, even some time after 2020, when we eventually get a functioning aircraft carrier, it will only be part-time. We will only be able to operate...
