Bob Stewart: I have given evidence in such situations. Are these war crimes being put forward by the United Nations for prosecutions? Those should start right now.
Bob Stewart: I thank my hon. Friend—he is a very good friend—for giving way. I am listening to him with rapt attention, and I heard him say that the entirety of the Middle Level is below sea level. I do not know the area, so could he tell me if that means that the rivers cannot get out—does the stuff have to be pumped out?—and traffic on the waterways cannot get out of this sunken...
Bob Stewart: Will my right hon. Friend confirm to the House that robust due diligence is always carried out on foreign investment when it might afford other Governments control of systems that are closely linked to national security, such as the grid?
Bob Stewart: It seems to me that the Bill is not only a contingency plan but a crucial building block for our negotiation. Our negotiation requires legislation such as this Bill, so that we can get everything else sorted and get a decent agreement with Euratom.
Bob Stewart: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what the UK policy on Yemen is in the (a) short, (b) medium and (c) long-term.
Bob Stewart: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what infrastructure and dredging will be required at the facilities at South Mole in Gibraltar to enable the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers to load (a) life support cargo, (b) fuel supplies and (c) munitions directly from the dock side.
Bob Stewart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
Bob Stewart: I actually lived in a Traveller community for a few days, and I must tell the House that one of the biggest problems is that people who act illegally are giving their children no chance in life because they cannot get an education. Most of the children under 17 in the encampment I was in, which was mixed, could not read. When I advocated their joining the Army, for example, they said,...
Bob Stewart: It gets worse than that—it goes to children. All my four children have been hassled by other kids in their local schools because of the job of their father. There is little that can be done about that, because they are children. My kids are robust enough to withstand it, but such behaviour is taken to a new level when, during the last general election, a teacher tells the class of my...
Bob Stewart: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what recent assessment he has made of the performance of the Northern Ireland economy.
Bob Stewart: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what plans he has to introduce a legally binding extended producer responsibility scheme for litter.
Bob Stewart: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of Highway England's performance in fulfilling its legal duty to keep its land clean and free from litter.
Bob Stewart: I really must protest, Minister, that in my constituency there is not one military unit, and I want that rectified. What is she going to do about it?
Bob Stewart: We all know that the first duty of Government is the defence of the state, which historically has meant defending it at any cost, but that may no longer be the case. Western public opinion is not prepared for ever increasing amounts of money to be spent on defence. The last really big conflict, the second world war, was the best part of a lifetime ago. Never in modern history has there been...
Bob Stewart: Nazanin is a British citizen and I understand that she also has Iranian citizenship. Obviously, the Iranians do not recognise her British citizenship. As far as they are concerned, she is Iranian, so we have a real problem in trying to influence the Iranian authorities. Have I got that wrong?
Bob Stewart: What assessment he has made of how to balance the needs of (a) business and (b) the Exchequer in setting the corporation tax rate.
Bob Stewart: Does the Minister agree that if we raise corporation tax, it is normally passed on by business to customers, and that if we lower it, we hope that prices will come down?
Bob Stewart: Several of my Beckenham constituents have suggested that the winter fuel allowance might be a taxable benefit. Is that being considered?
