PACE Trial: People with ME — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

John Lamont: The hon. Lady is speaking very well about the challenges that this illness presents to people, but does she share my concern that in Scotland there is only one specialist, nurse-led ME facility and there are no specialist ME consultants? She raises an important point, but in terms of NHS awareness of the condition, we need to do more to ensure that people are getting the treatment that they...

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

John Lamont: I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) and my hon. Friend the Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) for bringing this highly topical issue before Parliament. The announcement in December from Royal Bank of Scotland-NatWest that 62 branches would be shut across Scotland affected my constituency more than most, and I wish to concentrate my remarks on that. Six...

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

John Lamont: The hon. Lady makes an important point. I will come on to the bank’s announcement this week shortly, but I share her concern that it goes nowhere near far enough to address the concerns that many people have raised. I accept the Government’s position that this is a commercial decision for the bank. The public shares are not managed by the Treasury; they are controlled by an...

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

John Lamont: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for her point, but if she had listened to what I said a few moments ago, she would have heard me say that while the Government own the shares, we do not have direct control over the day-to-day running of the company. Equally, I believe—I have argued this strongly to the Minister—that the Government should apply moral pressure on the bank to think...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Lamont: Members will no doubt share my admiration for the way in which Scottish rugby legend Doddie Weir has reacted to his motor neurone disease diagnosis. Will the Leader of the House allow time for a debate on MND and join me in congratulating everybody in Kelso who raised £250,000 last week to help deal with this terrible disease? I also remind Members that I am running the London marathon...

Attorney General: Leaving the EU: European Arrest Warrant (8 Feb 2018)

John Lamont: Since 2010 thousands of criminals have been removed from the United Kingdom to face trial abroad thanks to the European arrest warrant. Does the Attorney General agree that such agreements are an integral part of our justice system here in the United Kingdom?

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I congratulate the hon. Member for Cardiff West (Kevin Brennan) on bringing this important issue to Parliament’s attention. I also take the opportunity to congratulate the UK Government and the National Autistic Society on their work in establishing the first autism-accredited prison in the world at Her Majesty’s...

Backbench Business: Criminal Justice System: Adults with Autism — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: The hon. Lady highlights an important point. The discussions I have had with my local police force clearly demonstrate that the police and other emergency workers have a much greater understanding of how to deal with the people with autism whom they come across during their work. It is estimated that there are 58,000 people living with an autism spectrum condition in Scotland. It is vital...

RBS Closures (Argyll and Bute) — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: The hon. Gentleman is making a very powerful case, much of which I agree with. In my constituency, I am losing six bank branches. I suspect the anger in my communities is equal to what he is experiencing in Argyll and Bute. Does he share my concerns that the bank is putting too much additional pressure on the post office network, which I do not think has the capacity to deal with that extra...

Pubs Code 2016 — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that, because of the reforms to business rates introduced by the Scottish Government, many pubs, including many in my constituency, have seen their business rates go through the roof? The basis on which rates are now calculated means that many businesses are paying much more than they were under the previous regime, yet they are not seeing any additional...

Pubs Code 2016 — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Robertson. I congratulate the hon. Member for West Bromwich West (Mr Bailey) on securing this important debate. As hon. and right hon. Members are aware, the pubs code does not apply to pubs in my Scottish constituency of Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk. However, that does not mean that this debate is not important to...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Income Tax: Scotland (19 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, when the Scottish Government first informed his Department of its removal of the marriage allowance for couples on the proposed 19p Scottish starter rate of income tax.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Income Tax: Scotland (19 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the effect of the proposal to raise income tax in Scotland on cross-border trade, employment and the location of businesses.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Horse Racing: Scotland (19 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what estimate his Department has made of the contribution of the horseracing industry to the economy in Scotland.

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes (18 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on an issue that has deeply affected so many small and medium-sized businesses throughout the United Kingdom. The Royal Bank of Scotland should be one of the jewels in the UK’s crown: a principled yet profitable business carrying the great name of Scotland and doing business in every corner of the globe. Perhaps it was something that we could...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (18 Jan 2018)

John Lamont: Jo Cox was a fantastic advocate for improving the lives of those who suffer from loneliness, and it is brilliant that that work will continue through the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness with the support of the Minister for Sport and Civil Society. May we have a debate on what more can be done to ensure that nobody, young or old, finds themselves alone and without social interaction?
