[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Police Recorded Crime Statistics (16 Oct 2014)

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Police Recorded Crime Statistics (16 Oct 2014)

Lindsay Roy: Does the hon. Gentleman believe, as I do, that things have to go beyond audit to a more qualitative assessment of progress? There should not simply be a tick-box mentality.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Sep 2014)

Lindsay Roy: We now know that, in the event of separation—

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Sep 2014)

Lindsay Roy: That was a good laugh. We know that in the event of separation, we would no longer have a formal currency union with the rest of the UK. In response, the First Minister has said that an independent Scotland would default on its share of the national debt. Prime Minister, what would be the consequences of such a reckless approach for the people of Scotland?

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Bedroom Tax (Scotland) (8 May 2014)

Lindsay Roy: The Minister spoke about a potential saving of £500 million. When will we get the actual figure?

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Bedroom Tax (Scotland) (8 May 2014)

Lindsay Roy: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow South West (Mr Davidson) on securing this debate and his tenacity in opposing the bedroom tax. Indeed, he has been an ambassador for nullifying its impact, particularly in Scotland but throughout the rest of the UK as well. The imposition of the hated bedroom tax is one of the most vile, abhorrent pieces of legislation ever passed by...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Bedroom Tax (Scotland) (8 May 2014)

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (9 Apr 2014)

Lindsay Roy: Tragically, 3,000 children a day die from malaria worldwide. What contribution are the Government making to eliminate child deaths from this dreadful disease, particularly in the Central African Republic, where UN funding is grossly underfunded?

Amendment of the Law (25 Mar 2014)

Lindsay Roy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Burton (Andrew Griffiths) and to listen to his speech on small beer. At a time when we hear that we are turning an economic corner—I welcome this immensely—after several challenging years of recession, this year’s Budget should have been one of optimism and hope for all, and in particular for those who have suffered the most under the...

Amendment of the Law (25 Mar 2014)

Lindsay Roy: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. In my office, we deal with 12 such cases every week, concerning Atos and sanctions. The forcible and inhumane imposition of the bedroom tax is a real concern for us. The Prime Minister should have sent the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions back to do his homework properly, and to plan a course of action on welfare benefits on a fair,...

Defence in Scotland After 2014 (18 Mar 2014)

Lindsay Roy: May I assure the Minister that I am not scaremongering but posing a question put to me by people who work at Raytheon, a company that employs 600 people in my constituency? They are asking whether there is an issue about the confidential contracts that are engaged in between the parent company in the USA and Raytheon UK, and whether there is any risk to, or uncertainty about, their jobs in...

Defence in Scotland After 2014 (18 Mar 2014)

Lindsay Roy: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this important debate. As he will be aware, I was invited to Rosyth by Babcock Marine and witnessed the impressive building of the new aircraft carrier, the Queen Elizabeth. I also saw, in the basin, the shells of seven former nuclear submarines, which still have some contamination. Apparently they are to be dismantled from 2016 onwards, but has he had any...
