Following Miss Whitefield's wonderful speech last week, I wondered whether she would confirm-if she is not too busy with her many constituents in Airdrie and Shotts who she said would be queueing up at her door-that she is a little disappointed that the legislative programme hardly mentions health, unemployment and poverty, which she talked about so much in relation to her constituents. Will she join the other parties that are rather disappointed that the first thing in the programme is land reform and not the health and poverty of her constituents?
