Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Obtaining or viewing material over the internet (22 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: So, if a person wishes to go to a designated area, that person should, perhaps on Foreign Office advice, be told, “That is a designated area; you need to declare it.” If that person declares it prior to his or her going, that is good. If they do not declare it, and they go there and are picked up on the way back—it might be a mistake, but it might not—is that what the Minister...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Obtaining or viewing material over the internet (22 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: In my experience, a Department such as DFID will sometimes send in a project team to do peace building or peace making, or to build a hospital. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that we might also have to consider bodyguards, because a private military company might be involved in protecting DFID’s people when they go into a war zone? Has he considered that as part of his amendment?

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Obtaining or viewing material over the internet (22 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: If a person from this country were to go to one of the prohibited areas and then come back, would it be automatic for that person to be picked up if he or she had not been given permission to do something there? Is it possible that the security services—which, I presume, fully support this measure—would say, “Let him or her run, because it is more in our interests to watch what they do”?

Northern Ireland: Security Situation (21 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: Compared with attacks in the past, this blast was somewhat amateur, in so far as the warning was given to the Samaritans in the west midlands and the blast was not that effective, thank God. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we now need to put all our efforts into identifying who these people are, to stop the encouragement of more people joining them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Illegal Drone Use: Airports (14 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: Does the military actually have radar that is capable of identifying something that is, say, 50 cm across?

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: I was concerned to read in the draft withdrawal agreement the phrase that there will be increased intelligence co-operation. I asked the Prime Minister about this on 10 December, and she said there is no problem with the “Five Eyes” agreement—none whatsoever.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [6th Allotted Day] (10 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: I operated a hard border in Northern Ireland for two years. We stopped every car, we searched every car, we checked every person. I absolutely believe it is perfectly possible for there to be free movement across that border, given willingness on both sides and the use of new techniques, particularly things like pre-registration and number- plate recognition. I think that border does not need...

Journalists: International Protection (9 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: On a point of order, Mr Bailey. I am so sorry, but I was flustered when I spoke and I want to correct the record. Tihomir Tunuković, whose body I picked up, was killed on Sunday 1 November, not on 20 October. I hope that the record can be amended accordingly.

Journalists: International Protection (9 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: I am sorry that I was a bit late coming into the debate, although I was actually on time—we started early. I have two minutes, so I had better get on with it. I will talk about the protection of journalists in conflict. Some 26 years ago, as the UN commander, I was sent to Bosnia by the British Government with the explicit instruction that I was not to protect journalists. I was not to...

Uganda: Democracy (8 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: When I worked in aid in Uganda, we ensured that the aid got to the people by delivering it ourselves, refusing to give it to any officials. We took it directly to the villagers or the people who required it. I know that is difficult, but I am sure that the hon. Gentleman agrees.

Armed Forces: Angus — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (8 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: I thank the Minister for allowing me to point out, as the secretary of the all-party parliamentary group on Gibraltar and as a real friend of the Royal Marines, it is the only unit in our armed forces that has a place name on its badge. It says “Gibraltar”, because that is where the unit made its name.

Armed Forces: Angus — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (8 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: I make no apologies for mentioning the huge military tradition in Angus. We must remember that it is the home of the 26th regiment of the Army—the Cameronians—which was disbanded in 1968 because it refused to amalgamate. It was one of two regiments of the British Army that said, “We’re not amalgamating; we’re the Cameronians. We are a fighting force—we come from Angus, and we’re...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Impact of provisions of section 5 on child poverty and equality (8 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: According to Department for Work and Pensions figures, there are 1 million fewer people in absolute poverty since 2010, with 300,000 fewer children in the same situation.

Seaborne Freight (8 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: Will my right hon. Friend reassure the House that the Port of Dover and Eurotunnel are making detailed contingency plans in case of no deal?

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Jan 2019)

Bob Stewart: My right hon. Friend has implied that we may not be speaking to the people who make the decisions on Nazanin. Is he suggesting that other power brokers, such as the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, may well be the decision makers, and have we any contacts with them?

Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Bob Stewart: Isotretinoin.

Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Bob Stewart: I do not understand why the runway has been closed for so long. Surely, if a drone is flying, people identify it, find out where it has come from and bring it down. The runway has been closed for a heck of a long time. Are there a series of these damn things going up?

Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Bob Stewart: Welcome to the Chair, Mr Robertson. All the post offices in my constituency have been moved into WH Smith. That is something that I fought hard, as I am sure other hon. Members have done. One reason, which the Post Office explained to me and which is quite battle-winning, in a way, is that in my constituency—although obviously not in York, which has a profitable post office—£1.30 was...

Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Bob Stewart: One of the great things about these debates is that we always learn something—I had no idea about the information that the hon. Gentleman has given us about the iconic Scottish bobcat. I am still a bit unclear; is he saying that the Scottish bobcat is still there in the wild, but has mated with domestic cats and become a sort of mixture of the two? In other words, does it remain in the...
