Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (5 Apr 2005)

Mr Ernie Ross: If he will make a statement on the middle east peace process.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (5 Apr 2005)

Mr Ernie Ross: I thank my right hon. Friend and wish him every success in the ongoing dialogue that will be required. May I remind him, however, that while we recognise that the core of the middle east problem is the Israel-Palestine question, if there is to be peace in the middle east, Israel must live in peace with all its neighbours? People in Israel—Israeli Jews, Israeli Christians, Israeli...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Pensions (15 Mar 2005)

Mr Ernie Ross: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we should congratulate the Department for Work and Pensions on the way in which it has restored pensioners to the land of the living? A recent report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies made it clear that pensioners, as a group, are no more liable to be poor than any other group. That is because we have introduced a whole range of policies that have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (1 Mar 2005)

Mr Ernie Ross: I agree with everything that my right hon. Friend has said, and I remind the House that one way of dealing with rejectionist forces is to improve the lot of the Palestinians in the west bank and Gaza. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the sooner we can conclude the conference and move the agenda forward for ordinary Palestinians, the more likely they are to go along with us in the actions...

Future Infantry Structure (16 Dec 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: I welcome my right hon. Friend's statement, unlike those Members who have just left the Chamber. A colleague of mine, the Lord Provost of Dundee, was in Warminster yesterday talking to the soldiers and officers of the Black Watch, and not one of them had any complaints. In fact, they wanted to make it clear that the opinions of people such as those who have just left the Chamber do not...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (14 Dec 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the middle east peace process.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (9 Nov 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: If my right hon. Friend does not mind, I will stop short of supporting him in his view of Prime Minister Sharon. I know Prime Minister Sharon slightly better than my right hon. Friend does, and I know of his activities in the past. However, it is very important that the road map gets back on track and that the Prime Minister takes with him the best wishes of the House. The whole of the middle...

Iraq (12 Oct 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: I support everything that my right hon. Friend has said today and I particularly welcome his comments about the Muslim Council of Britain and its role in the efforts to save Ken Bigley. It is important for the House to focus on the way in which Islam does not agree or go along with the activities of the organisations that perpetrate such actions. Does my right hon. Friend intend to have any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel (13 Jul 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: I agree with all that my right hon. Friend has said. However, the ordinary person in the middle east sees Israel flouting international law again and the most powerful nation in the world—the United States of America—saying that the International Court of Justice is not the appropriate forum in which the matter should be decided, at the same time as doing little to move the road map...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East (11 May 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: My right hon. Friend will be aware that there is despair among the Palestinian community here and in the middle east following the meeting between Prime Minister Sharon and President Bush and the subsequent hype made of it by Prime Minister Sharon. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the communiqué issued on behalf of the Quartet last Tuesday makes it clear that final negotiated positions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: 4th Geneva Convention (30 Mar 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: The overwhelming majority of Members will support everything that my right hon. Friend has said this morning. As he will know, many countries have had terrorists who went on to become Prime Ministers. We need to reinvigorate the Americans in order that they can get the peace process back on the rails—that is the answer to Hamas and to targeted killings. What is my right hon. Friend doing...

Lord Hutton's Report (4 Feb 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Lord Hutton's Report (4 Feb 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: If we are to get an Iraq that is free, fair and democratic, will my right hon. Friend emphasise to President Bush at their next meeting that the people of Iraq have the need—and the right—to organise? People who organise a trade union or a committee in a mosque, for example, should not be suspected of being members of al-Qaeda, or of having links with that group. Will my right hon. Friend...

WMD Intelligence Review Committee (3 Feb 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: I welcome my right hon. Friend's statement. I should like to re-emphasise the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Knowsley, North and Sefton, East (Mr. Howarth), that the protection of those who give evidence is essential, particularly if they come from the middle east. We still have major problems there. There are different ways to gather intelligence, and those who supply it must...

Lord Hutton's Report (28 Jan 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: Does my right hon. Friend share the concern, at least on the Labour Benches, that the Leader of the Opposition did not find it within himself today to come to the House and apologise—[Interruption.]

Lord Hutton's Report (28 Jan 2004)

Mr Ernie Ross: Does my right hon. Friend agree that, following the publication of the report, it is time to stop arguing about whether a document was right or wrong? The responsibility of the House is to help to rebuild Iraq.
