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."

    Commenting on today's Autumn Statement, Sir Malcolm Bruce, MP for Gordon, said:

    "This Autumn Statement has not only set out a clear plan for securing a sustained economic recovery, but also contains good news for Scottish workers and businesses. Helping low and middle income earners has been a priority for the Liberal Democrats in government, so I am delighted that the income tax personal allowance will increase again next year. This means Scottish workers will now pay £820 a year less in income tax than they did in 2010.

    The Smith Commission

    The Smith Commission, set up to produce recommendations for further devolution reflecting the result of the referendum, has published its interim conclusions.

    I very much welcome the announcement of significant new powers for Scotland. With the Scottish Parliament now set to raise the majority of the money it spends and gain significant welfare powers, this package finally delivers home rule for Scotland and will give Holyrood the financial muscle that it needs.

    Tackling Ebola must leave a legacy of stronger health systems

    Having visited Sierra Leone and Liberia in June when Ebola was causing concern but had not become a crisis I have nothing but sympathy for the communities being torn apart by the epidemic and nothing but admiration for the health workers from the region and across the globe who are dedicating themselves to tackling this dreadful, contagious disease.

    Aberdeenshire voted overwhelmingly against independence and I was among those who breathed an immense sigh of relief both at the outcome and that this drawn out "neverendum" was at last over.

    Over the last few months I and my team along with Better Together knocked on thousands of doors across the area. There was, throughout, always a clear majority opposed to independence, which made me suspicious of some of the opinion polls in the latter part of the campaign.

    Speaking in Parliament in support of plans to guarantee 0.7% of UK GDP spending on international aid, Sir Malcolm cautioned that setting up a new aid agency in an independent Scotland would take years and weaken the UK's existing programmes.

    In a statement issued today, BP Chief Executive Bob Dudley said that the future prospects for North Sea oil would be best served by a "No" vote in next week's referendum.

    32nd - and last - summer tour of Gordon

    I am writing this part way through my 32nd and last summer tour of the Gordon constituency. Of course, I travel all around the constituency throughout the year but I started the idea of touring the whole constituency the summer after I was elected in 1983 and have done it ever since.
