Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Michael Ellis: The hon. Lady’s speech was going so well until that last point; I really do not think that that is likely to happen. I welcome the hon. Lady’s comments.

May I assure the House—and you, Mr Speaker—that I am not the only one left, as you can see from the...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy: Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (16 Nov 2017)

Michael Ellis: With the leave of the House, I will respond to the debate. Needless to say, the topics chosen for discussion by any Committee are not a matter for me or any of Her Majesty’s Ministers. However, the first point to make is that the Government recognise the need to protect the reliability and objectivity of information, which is an essential component of democracy. That is why Her...

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Michael Ellis: I am sorry, I do not have the time. The SNP are failures—Ruth Davidson has the right ideas.

A powerful Scottish Parliament within a strong United Kingdom offers people in Scotland...

Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

Michael Ellis: It is vital that the new powers are used to the greatest benefit in Scotland. I have heard much concern this afternoon about that not being the case, and I expect that we will see more of this debate in the coming months, as the Scottish Government outline their plans in their budget and beyond. Of course, the question is not simply one of existing powers and how they are used. We are now...
