HC Deb 26 January 1977 vol 924 c1481
10. Mr. MacCormick

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will pay an official visit to Kintyre.

Mr. Gregor MacKenzie

My right hon. Friend has at present no plans to do so.

Mr. MacCormick

Does the Minister appreciate that a visit to Kintyre would help to dissipate the impression held by many of my constituents that the Secretary of State does not exist? Does he agree that a visit to such an area would be a great boost to the morale of all his ex-supporters in that part of my constituency?

Mr. MacKenzie

Perhaps the hon. Gentleman's attempts to put Questions to my right hon. Friend would, were they better phrased, succeed in securing some answers from my right hon. Friend himself. My right hon. Friend is well aware of the problems of Kintyre, and if they were put frequently enough by hon. Members in the House would be even more aware.
