Opposition Day: Migration and Scotland (11 Feb 2020)

John Lamont: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Flood Response (10 Feb 2020)

John Lamont: I am sure the Secretary of State and many Members will have seen the dramatic pictures from Hawick in my constituency, where Sonia’s Bistro and the Bridge House bed and breakfast collapsed into the River Teviot. That was devastating for the business, but thankfully nobody was injured. May we pay tribute not only to the emergency services but to the Hawick flood group and all the other...

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Executive Restoration (5 Feb 2020)

John Lamont: What recent assessment he has made of the effect on Northern Ireland of the restoration of devolved Government.

Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland Executive Restoration (5 Feb 2020)

John Lamont: Over the past few years, this House has made a number of important decisions on very important devolved areas of government in Northern Ireland. Does the Secretary of State agree that locally elected politicians in Northern Ireland are best placed to make those local decisions?

Claim of Right for Scotland (27 Jan 2020)

John Lamont: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way during his excellent response. I wonder whether he is aware of a quite shocking tweet over the weekend from Paul Wheelhouse, the SNP Scottish Government Minister, in response to my tweet about a Burns supper, in which he questioned my Scottishness because I do not share his nationalist agenda. Does the Minister agree that that type of bullying and...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk: Business Support (21 Jan 2020)

John Lamont: What recent steps she has taken to support businesses in Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk constituency.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk: Business Support (21 Jan 2020)

John Lamont: The Minister will know about the borders’ fine, famous tradition of producing Scottish textiles, but this industry is being hammered by the US-EU trade war, whereby many businesses face a 25% tariff on their exports to the United States. What are the Government doing to support those businesses and, in particular, compensate them for these tariff charges?

Scotland: “Scotland’s Right to Choose” (8 Jan 2020)

John Lamont: I welcome the new ministerial team to the Scotland Office. In Scotland, education standards are falling and the NHS is failing patients with missed waiting-time targets. Does the Secretary of State share my embarrassment that the First Minister of Scotland, rather than sorting out these important issues, is obsessing with independence?

Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Oct 2019)

John Lamont: In Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP are letting down our wonderful NHS staff and the patients they look after. Waiting time targets have been missed, capital investment has been slashed and there is a £1 billion maintenance backlog. Does the Prime Minister agree with me that, rather than obsessing about independence referendums, Nicola Sturgeon should end her neglect of Scotland’s NHS?

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

John Lamont: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Norwich South (Clive Lewis). I recognise the passion with which he speaks about these issues and I share his concern. I am pleased to be able to speak briefly today in this important debate. I very much welcome the measures contained in the Queen’s Speech. Other Members have covered the urgency of the need to tackle climate change so I will...

Us Tariffs: Scotch Whisky (7 Oct 2019)

John Lamont: The decision by the US affects other iconic Scottish industries, such as cashmere and textiles. We have a long tradition in my constituency in the borders, and both Hawico and Johnstons in Hawick have been in touch with me in recent days, expressing severe concerns about the impact that these tariffs are going to have on their American business. Can the Minister assure me that textiles and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Living Standards (1 Oct 2019)

John Lamont: The best way to improve living standards is to reduce tax burdens. Does the Chancellor share my concern that anyone in Scotland earning more than £27,000 is paying more than the equivalent English taxpayer, and that more than 1 million Scots are paying £500 million in extra taxation?

Situation in the Gulf (22 Jul 2019)

John Lamont: I very much welcome the Foreign Secretary’s statement and the actions the Government are taking to try to address this crisis. Does he agree that the priority now should be the safe return of the crew and the British-registered vessel?

Universal Health Coverage — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

John Lamont: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I, too, congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt) on securing this important debate. I recognise that he was a great champion of these causes during his time as a Minister, and he has continued that valuable work from the Back Benches. A key part of progress towards worldwide...

Universal Health Coverage — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

John Lamont: I absolutely agree, which is why the UK’s role in tackling TB is so important. As a country, we will pledge up to £1.4 billion to the latest round of the Global Fund, which will help to provide life-saving antiretroviral therapy for more than 3.3 million people living with HIV, support treatment for 2.3 million people living with tuberculosis, and distribute 92 million mosquito nets to...

Universal Health Coverage — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

John Lamont: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. All of these are very good examples of where UK money is invested locally but the benefits are felt all around the world. Very often, it is volunteers from the UK who ensure that funds are spent to best effect. Although we absolutely must lead the fight against worldwide killers such as HIV and TB, supporting treatment and therapy for rarer conditions...
