Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Connectivity (11 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that cross-border connectivity is crucial right across the United Kingdom. He and his constituents will quite rightly expect the UK Government to commit to working closely and constructively with the Scottish Government so that we have a joined-up approach. We are working on a day-to-day level, and at an official level between the Department for Transport...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Connectivity (11 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: My hon. Friend is absolutely right and so is the MD of Glasgow airport. The third runway is imperative for Scottish businesses, which is why we have set very clear expectations that 15% of the slots that are made available will be for domestic flights. It is disappointing that the Scottish National party did not vote for this expansion. [Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Connectivity (11 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: I cannot give the hon. Gentleman specific confirmation at this point, but I would be more than happy to write to him, if he would allow me to.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Connectivity (11 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: As the hon. Lady is probably aware, when we made the announcement and had the vote, we made a commitment to having a strong environmental plan. We will be looking at that very seriously.

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation: NHS Complaints System: Wales (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: I begin by thanking the right hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Ann Clwyd) for securing this important debate. I know how incredibly personal this is for her. Her being able to stand in this Chamber to talk so movingly and so passionately about her late husband’s time in hospital, and her dedication to trying to bring about a service that is fit for everybody, is commendable. Prior to...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: May I begin by referring to the hon. Member for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill (Hugh Gaffney), who rightly mentioned the sad death of his constituent, Alesha MacPhail? It is right that we all send our condolences to her family and say that we are with the community at this very difficult time. I am beginning to realise that these debates become incredibly lively. Last week’s debate...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: As the hon. Gentleman knows, 15% of the routes are guaranteed for regional connectivity. He has turned down the opportunity for his country to have better connectivity to the rest of the UK and the rest of the world. He says that he wants to stand up for Scotland, but he should take part in the debates that happen here and vote in Divisions, rather than walking out, as he did at Prime...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: No, the right hon. Gentleman spoke for far too long at the beginning of the debate. In fact, I will come on to a point he made right at the very beginning of his speech. He let the cat out of the bag in the very first few sentences of his contribution when he almost lost his temper. It was clear that this is all about pushing for another Scottish independence referendum. He said that there...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. This is part of the process the SNP is trying to use. It is trying to create an image that the Government are trying to take powers away from Scotland when the fact is that, when those powers come from Brussels, when we leave the EU, we will transfer those powers to the Scottish Parliament. That is why Nicola Sturgeon herself has had to increase the size of...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I want to challenge the assertion made by various Members of the Scottish nationalists that my hon. Friends who represent Scottish seats should stand up for their constituents. I have the privilege of working with them on a regular basis and I can say that that is what they do day in, day out with great force. They regularly meet Ministers from all sorts of Departments...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Stuart Andrew: Mr Speaker, I did not say that the right hon. Gentleman was disorderly. I simply said that I did not think the tone and the behaviour were appropriate for this debate—

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I congratulate the hon. Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Ged Killen) on securing the debate. I am sorry that he is not as pleased to see me as I am to respond to the debate. I point out to him that, as my hon. Friend the Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) said, I am a UK Minister. I am proud of being part of a Unionist UK...

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: No—I have very little time, in fairness, and I want to get through quite a few of the points that have been raised. This has been a very good and lively debate. I said it was a pleasure to be here. At the beginning of it, I was thinking, “What have I walked into?” However, it is a pleasure. A fundamental change is going on in the global economy that will throw up both...

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: No, I am not taking any interventions, because I am very conscious of time. Brexit was also mentioned. I have heard it said time and time again that the Government are hell bent on a hard Brexit. If anything, we are hell bent on ensuring that we get a deal that works for the UK and the EU. I have faith in my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister. She has achieved agreements when the media and...

Written Answers — Wales Office: MOD St Athan (14 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: I have regular discussions with Ministers and officials at the Ministry of Defence on defence matters relating to Wales, including MOD St Athan. My officials also have regular discussions with their counterparts including joint quarterly meetings with the Welsh Government regarding MOD St Athan. These meetings include attendees from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and Defence...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Universal Credit (13 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: Universal credit is already operating in 15 jobcentres across Wales, with a further nine scheduled for roll-out this month. The number of people receiving universal credit in Wales is now over 40,000, and 36% of them are in employment. Wales’s jobcentres are in the latter part of the roll-out schedule and will be fully in place by December this year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Universal Credit (13 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: I obviously cannot comment on the individual case, but I am sorry that the hon. Lady’s constituent was in that position. We have tried to do everything we can to ensure that the roll-out has been as smooth and as slow as possible, and where we have had issues such as those that she raised, we have made changes. That is why my right hon. Friend the Chancellor made the announcement in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Universal Credit (13 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: My understanding is that there has never really been consensus on devolving this to Wales. I also point out that the Scottish Government have many of these powers and are yet to use them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Universal Credit (13 Jun 2018)

Stuart Andrew: The reason we have introduced PIP is to make sure that people who are living with disabilities are able to have as independent a life as possible. The problem with the old system of DLA is that people were given the payment and their needs were never reassessed. That is the reason why with PIP, we are making regular assessments, so that as those conditions may deteriorate, they will get more...
