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."

I was delighted that the Coalition Government was able to confirm the key Liberal Democrat commitment to increase the income tax threshold again to £10,500 - in effect securing a tax cut of £800 for workers during this Parliament and taking many lower earners out of paying income tax altogether.

    Sir Malcolm Bruce has tabled a Parliamentary motion calling for the end of the escalator on the duty of spirits in order to promote domestic whisky and spirits market.
