asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he next plans to visit Glasgow.

Is my right hon. Friend aware that if he visits Glasgow he will find that the recent weekend speech by the hon. Member for Aberdeenshire, East (Mr. Henderson), which suggested that we should all join the Scottish National Party to bring prosperity to Scotland, is being treated with a great deal of amusement by my constituents? Does he agree that any party which is rejected by the STUC and by practically every trade union in Scotland, and a party which is following a dishonest line over the Common Market in that it wants Britain out and Scotland in, is not acceptable to the Scottish people? Does he further accept that any party which disagrees with public ownership of North Sea oil can do nothing for the prosperity of the Scottish people?

Would the right hon. Gentleman agree that it would do him and his hon. Friend the world of good if they read my speeches which are made at weekends or at any other time?
