Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Social and Economic Situation (29 Jun 1987)

George Galloway: I am not sure of the proprieties of it, but I should like to say that we have just heard some words that will go down in history. We know the famous words of the right hon. Member for Chingford (Mr. Tebbit)—that the unemployed should get on their bike. We now have the answer to the north-south divide—that it is all in the mind. I am not so sure, and in my maiden speech in the House...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: State Security (20 Jul 1987)

New Clause 3: Rate Reduction (Lothian Region) (20 Jul 1987)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local and Health Authority Contracts (22 Jul 1987)

George Galloway: The Scottish people decisively rejected the thieves' charter of privatisation just a few weeks ago. Scottish Ministers have come here today buttressed by the motley crew of English placemen and deracinated Scotsmen to ignore the salient points——

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local and Health Authority Contracts (22 Jul 1987)

George Galloway: The question is this, Sir. When will those Ministers, with the green acres stretched out behind them where their Scottish colleagues used to be, come to terms with the fact that 78 per cent. of the Scottish people and 62 out of 72 Scottish Members of Parliament reject them and everything that they stand for?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: State Security (9 Dec 1987)

George Galloway: Mr. Brian Barr, the programme maker of distinction who made the Zircon programme, is one of my constituents. For nearly one year he has had a cloud of suspicion hanging over him that he might have been party to undermining the security of our country. He has been harassed by unwilling and embarrassed policemen acting on Government instructions. Legal edicts flew across the Atlantic to harass...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: State Security (9 Dec 1987)

George Galloway: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 20, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, The purchase of shares in Britoil by BP. Britoil is the largest and most important independent company based in Scotland and its headquarters are in my constituency. It employs 1,700 people who, as...

Britoil (11 Jan 1988)

George Galloway: This is the first time that I have witnessed the legendary arrogance and complacency of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Britoil (11 Jan 1988)

George Galloway: It is not a pretty sight. The Chancellor's answer to an earlier question about the siting of Britoil's headquarters was staggering in its indifference. In my constituency, where the headquarters are situated, there are 800 people—Government Members may laugh like buffoons—

Britoil (11 Jan 1988)

George Galloway: I apologise, Mr. Speaker. These 800 people are very worried and frightened about their future, yet all the Chancellor can say is that it is somehow a matter for the market place or the company to decide. Can the Chancellor find it within himself to assure my constituents and the people of Glasgow that he wants the headquarters of Britoil to remain there, and that he wants Britoil to remain an...

George Galloway: That is why they keep getting elected.

Britoil (1 Feb 1988)

George Galloway: The Chancellor of the Exchequer has brought weasel words to the House this afternoon. The golden share was to be a shield to protect the independence of the independent oil-producing and oil-exploring sector, but it has proved to be no more formidable than a piece of silver paper.
