Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: NATO: Joint Exercises (16 May 2019)

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Farming Policy (9 May 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: NFU Scotland and other farming organisations north of the border are increasingly concerned at the lack of agreement between the UK Government and the Scottish Government to allow a Scottish schedule into the Agriculture Bill. Will the Minister meet me and a cross-party delegation, including the NFU and crofters organisations, to hear from them what the industry would want in that schedule?

TV Licences for over-75S (8 May 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: Surely the point is this: we cannot provide financial certainty for the BBC at the expense of the over-75s. Whether or not it was right to give power to the BBC in the Digital Economy Act is not the issue. We have to look at this on the basis of the outcomes, not the processes. Will the Minister not accept that, right now, the outcomes for the over-75s look pretty grim?

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: 5G: Rural Areas (8 May 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what discussions he has had with Ofcom on helping to ensure that the next auction of 5G spectrum promotes coverage of rural communities which might sit beyond mobile operators' roll-out plans.

National Security Council Leak (2 May 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: The Prime Minister may or may not be right, and as far as the Government are concerned, her exchange of letters yesterday is the end of the matter, but surely when it comes to matters in this House, different considerations apply. The right hon. Member for South Staffordshire (Gavin Williamson) and the Prime Minister are both Members of the House, and they now have very different versions...

Northern Ireland: Political Process (29 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: For as long as there has been a peace process, my party has been part of a non-partisan approach to it in this House. In that spirit, may I offer my congratulations and welcome the news that the Secretary of State brings to the House today about the resumption of talks? It is not the case, however, that the whole political process in Northern Ireland has been failing in recent years. My...

Business of the House (25 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: I, too, welcome the return of Opposition days to the Order Paper, although it would be even more welcome if the Government started to pay some heed to what the House says on these occasions. However, may I say to the Leader of the House that there is now a multiplicity of voices on the Opposition Benches? We have a Member of Parliament elected to represent the interests of the Green party; we...

International Trade: Intellectual Property Rights (25 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: What steps the Government are taking to protect intellectual property rights in international trade agreements.

International Trade: Intellectual Property Rights (25 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: The Minister will no doubt be aware that tomorrow is World Intellectual Property Day, and this year the theme is sport and intellectual property. A number of United Kingdom-based companies have had their intellectual property stolen by beoutQ, a Saudi Arabian-based pirate broadcaster, including—I know this will interest you, Mr Speaker—last Monday’s Watford against Arsenal match. What...

Saudi Arabia: Mass Executions (24 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: I remind the House that I chair the all-party parliamentary British-Qatar group and am an officer of the all-party group on Kuwait, so I hope the Minister will accept that he does not need to persuade me of the importance of creating good relations with our friends in the Gulf. But when I read about the use of not only capital punishment but torture to obtain confessions, on the basis of...

Northern Ireland: Murder of Lyra Mckee (23 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: May I add my own expression of revulsion at this most brutal and senseless act and offer my condolences and those of my party to the family of Lyra McKee and to all those who knew her? At a moment such as this, I always think that it is important to identify some sort of positive towards which we can work. For my part, I hope that for whatever unwanted and unwantable reason that we may find...

Proportional Representation: House of Commons — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: I commend the hon. Lady on her speech and on the candour and force with which she makes her points. What she says is true not just of national government but of local government. May I offer her the example of local government in Scotland where, since 2007, councils have been elected under the single transferable vote? We have seen the end of single-party monoliths across Scotland, and that...

Written Answers — Home Office: Migrant Workers: Health Professions (12 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps the Government is taking to ensure that the immigration system enables the movement of highly-skilled individuals into the NHS and those working in cancer research after the UK leaves the EU.

Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: May we have a statement or an urgent debate on the UNICEF campaign to protect children from deadly toxic air? It is a subject on which I have received a number of representations from the children of Cullivoe Primary School in Yell, who take the view very reasonably that everyone should be entitled to air that is as clean as Shetland air, even if they might not necessarily want it to move at...

Hong Kong: Pro-Democracy Activists (10 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the conviction of pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong: Pro-Democracy Activists (10 Apr 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: I thank the Minister for that answer. I hope that he will be as robust in his tone when speaking to the Chinese Government as he has been in his remarks to the House today. The prosecution and now conviction of nine leaders of the Umbrella movement is the latest in a series of egregious human rights abuses by the Government in China. Using the criminal justice system and public order offences...
