Scotland: The Union (28 Apr 2021)

John Lamont: There has been much reckless chat from Scottish National party politicians about creating a hard border between Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom. My constituents in the Scottish Borders want to see the threat of a border—and the threat of another referendum—removed. Does the Minister agree that the voters of Scotland have an opportunity to remove that threat next week in the...

Women and Equalities: Conversion Therapy (24 Mar 2021)

John Lamont: I am grateful for that response. I am absolutely clear that this practice has no place in a civilised society. Being from the LGBT+ community is not an illness to be treated or cured, and I agree with the Prime Minister who calls conversion therapy “abhorrent” and “repulsive”. In the light of this, what can the Minister do to accelerate the ban?

Scottish Independence Referendum — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (22 Mar 2021)

John Lamont: I apologise, Ms Nokes. We need to rebuild Scotland, end the division of the past, and stop the constant talk of another independence referendum. There is one way to do that, and that is for people to use both votes in May for the Scottish Conservatives.

Leaving the EU: Impact on the UK (17 Mar 2021)

John Lamont: I listened very carefully to the opening remarks of the hon. Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss). What I find quite extraordinary about the SNP is its ability to hold to two completely incompatible and inconsistent policies at the same time. We recently concluded the SNP’s first debate of this afternoon, in which it argued that Scotland should be separate from the rest of the...

John Lamont: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I seek your guidance. After his intervention, the hon.

Friend and perhaps to other people watching this debate outside of this place. I seek your guidance as to...

Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future (17 Mar 2021)

As one of the political parties in this place, the Scottish National party is in the privileged position of having debating time—time when it decides what to debate and...
