Rt Hon Malcolm Bruce MP

Nick Clegg MP says:

Nick Clegg

"I want to know what Malcolm's diet is because he clearly eats or drinks something that keeps him forever young. He is one of the most energetic MPs in the House of Commons today much as he was when he entered the Commons 25 years ago. It is amazing to see him run circles around MPs half his age in his tireless dedication to his constituents. He really is an institution in his own right in his own constituency but also in Westminster, as a chairman of a very important select committee. He is widely respected across party boundaries. I wonder whether his constituents realise how lucky they are to have someone who is not just a good constituency MP but someone who is really respected in Westminster. Westminster is a rough and rowdy place. There are not that many MPs - and Malcolm can count himself amongst them - who are listened to respectfully by all parties."

Despite this promise, Police Scotland has since stop searched a further 356 children. Across Scotland between January and November last year there were 436,288 stop-searches, of which 654 were of children under 12.

    Sir Malcolm Bruce, MP for Gordon, and Christine Jardine, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Gordon, have urged the SNP to halt the roll-out of a "super ID database" after it emerged that personal information has been wrongfully disclosed by Scottish Government staff.

    Figures obtained by the Scottish Liberal Democrats through Freedom of Information laws also revealed a number of cases where confidential papers had been lost in transit or sent to the wrong addresses by the Scottish Government in the past year. It includes one case where an application was submitted to Mental Health Tribunal Scotland by a Medical Officer with an incorrect address for the named person. This subsequently led to confidential papers being sent to the wrong address.
