Motion text

That this House deplores the fact that a member of the Tory Government, the honourable Member for Croydon South, referred publicly to Scotland as 'the most prosperous region of England'; considers that such ignorance of geography and economics is grossly insulting to the people of Scotland; and is therefore not surprised that the Tory Party suffered a complete wipe-out at last month's Scottish local elections and faces the prospect of yet another humiliation in this week's local elections in England and Wales.
