Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 Mar 2015)

Anne McGuire: It is a rare privilege to be allowed to make a valedictory speech, Mr Speaker. I have to admit that this is the first one I have ever had the opportunity to make in leaving a job; normally, there was a wee present and a drink in the local pub, so this certainly is an elevation beyond my expectations. The people of Stirling paid me the honour of electing me four times and I thank them...

Gaza — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (25 Feb 2015)

Anne McGuire: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate. Like others, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Mr McCann). For the record, I am the parliamentary chair of Labour Friends of Israel. All of us around the Chamber have really good instincts about what needs to happen. We want peace for the Palestinian people and the Israelis. It is a tragedy and a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Property Taxes (25 Feb 2015)

Anne McGuire: What recent discussions he has had with Ministers of the Scottish Government on property taxes in Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Property Taxes (25 Feb 2015)

Anne McGuire: May I encourage the Secretary of State to be a little more forthcoming and share with the House his view on whether Revenue Scotland is ready for the transfer of property taxes in April?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Gaza (4 Feb 2015)

Anne McGuire: What assessment she has made of the effectiveness of the tripartite mechanism for the reconstruction of Gaza.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Gaza (4 Feb 2015)

Anne McGuire: Does the Secretary of State agree that the UN needs to take action to ensure that all the building materials going into Gaza are used to alleviate the dire conditions of the Gazan people, rather than diverted by Hamas for military purposes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (20 Jan 2015)

Anne McGuire: This week, as part of the congregation of Stirling Methodist church, I joined other local politicians in writing to the UN about a global climate agreement in Paris. Can the Secretary of State tell us what work is being done on the agreements reached in Lima in December 2014, leading up to the Paris conference in 2015?

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Holocaust Memorial Day (20 Jan 2015)

Anne McGuire: Actually, it is Stirling.

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Holocaust Memorial Day (20 Jan 2015)

Anne McGuire: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Weir. I will keep my remarks brief, as I appreciate that other Members want to speak. It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess). Like others, I congratulate the hon. Member for Hertsmere (Mr Clappison). I also wish to pay a special tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Riverside (Mrs...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Holocaust Memorial Day (20 Jan 2015)

Anne McGuire: Everyone will find that shocking. Although we were not born when these things happened, we lived with the aftermath, and those of us who, like the hon. Member for Southend West, grew up in the post-war period, saw the images of the Holocaust on BBC television in black and white and had a broadening knowledge of it. That is why such debates, as well as the work of the Holocaust Educational...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Holocaust Memorial Day (20 Jan 2015)

Anne McGuire: As the chair of Labour Friends of Israel, I like to think that, although we are not there to be apologists for any Israeli Government or any politician in Israel, the existence of the state of Israel is an important element not only in post-Holocaust history, because of the Holocaust, but in the future of the Jewish people. I want now to talk about the visit to Auschwitz to commemorate the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions (6 Jan 2015)

Anne McGuire: Given that the Deputy Prime Minister and his Lib Dem Ministers are rowing back from coalition policies at Olympic speeds, why are they still carrying red ministerial boxes and taking ministerial salaries in a Government whom they are so antagonistic towards?

Backbench Business: Fishing Industry (11 Dec 2014)

Anne McGuire: I am delighted to be called in this debate. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Luton North (Kelvin Hopkins), I do not have a fishing community in my constituency. We have anglers, as opposed to fishermen, on the River Forth. I want to speak in this debate for two reasons. First, fishing communities need advocates from outside their communities too, no matter how fantastic the contributions...

Backbench Business: Fishing Industry (11 Dec 2014)

Anne McGuire: I was coming on to that exact point. Considering the balance in the industry is not about undermining the contribution of one, or ignoring the contribution of the other. The hon. Lady makes a valuable point. The quotas were set 25 to 30 years ago, and there has been a decreasing allocation for small inshore fishing vessels. The 5,000 small vessels, as the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter...

Backbench Business: Fishing Industry (11 Dec 2014)

Anne McGuire: I hear what the Minister says.

Backbench Business: Fishing Industry (11 Dec 2014)

Anne McGuire: When he winds up the debate, I hope the Minister will clarify the situation. Will the noble Lord be part of the discussions? Will the Minister be leading the delegation? I know he has great experience of, and takes a great interest in, the fishing industry, but in some circumstances it would be appropriate for a Scottish Fisheries Minister to represent the UK. The Minister has to prove that a...

Backbench Business: Fishing Industry (11 Dec 2014)

Anne McGuire: Does my hon. Friend accept, however, that Norway has to enter into negotiations with the EU? As he says, fish do not swim under water with little flags saying that they belong to a certain part of the North sea or any other sea, so Norway’s situation is not quite as clear-cut as he suggests.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Shipbuilding (26 Nov 2014)

Anne McGuire: What recent discussions he has had with his ministerial colleagues on shipbuilding on the Clyde.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Shipbuilding (26 Nov 2014)

Anne McGuire: I am sure many on the Opposition Benches would echo the comments about the new First Minister and wish her well. The Secretary of State gave a slightly nuanced answer. I wonder if he will state categorically that the Type 26 frigates will be built, and perhaps he could throw some light on why the First Sea Lord felt he could make the comments that threw into doubt the proposals for those frigates.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Under-occupancy Penalty (3 Nov 2014)

Anne McGuire: Given that, according to recent surveys by social landlords, more than half the people impacted by the bedroom tax are now in arrears, what advice would the Secretary of State give those social landlords, particularly housing associations, about the unsustainable financial position they now find themselves in?
