Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

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,...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

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...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

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?

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

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...

British Prisoners in Iran (18 Jul 2017)

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?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2017)

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Bob Stewart: I thank my very good hon. Friend for giving way. May I just remind the House that a lot of Scottish soldiers in reinforcement units were diverted to English, Welsh and Irish regiments? It is therefore absolutely apposite that there is a Scottish memorial to all Scottish soldiers, whichever regiment they served in. After all, some of us go abroad and command English regiments.

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Bob Stewart: I want to talk about the situation 100 years ago. At that time, one quarter of the vessels crossing the Atlantic were being sunk by U-boats coming from the Belgian coast. The Navy had warned the Government that unless something was done about it, we might collapse in 1918. The United States had entered the war on 6 April 1917, which was great from our point of view, but in May and June the...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Bob Stewart: My hon. Friend obviously understands these things better than I do, but one thing has really worried me about this tragedy. If there had been sprinklers inside the building, and the outside of the building had caught fire, would people have survived although the outside of the building was aflame? That worries me. I do not know whether there is an answer, but it seems to me that they might...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Reserve Centres (10 Jul 2017)

Bob Stewart: Does the Minister agree that a crucial criterion when considering dismissing or abandoning reserve centres is to ensure that our reserve centres are as close as possible to the reserve soldiers who will man them, so that they do not have to travel far?

Bob Stewart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Criminal Law (Northern Ireland) (5 Jul 2017)

Bob Stewart: May I just say, Madam Deputy Speaker, how that Chair becomes you? I welcome you to it and I welcome the Minister to her new position. I hope that will get me called more often. I was the Army incident commander at Ballykelly when, as many people know, the Ballykelly bomb was detonated just after 11 pm on 6 December 1982. The bomb was placed by the Irish National Liberation Army and took the...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Criminal Law (Northern Ireland) (5 Jul 2017)
