Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: I presume that the sentences should, at the very least, be the equivalent of the sentence for someone who does that outside prison.

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Duty to have regard to the life sciences sector and access to new medicines and treatments (15 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: I want to ask a layman’s question: if NICE approves a drug, is the NHS necessarily required to buy it?

Counter-Daesh Update (15 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: May I ask my right hon. Friend to give us an update on what is happening in Aleppo? For instance, is British aid getting through to the citizens of Aleppo at the moment?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: The right hon. Gentleman and I have a great interest in Yemen, both of us having lived there. My concern is that if we do not keep the aid in the bank, it might end up on some quayside in some dodgy port, where we do not want it to be and where it can be rifled by the mafia. We have to find a balance when we talk about delivering aid, particularly to somewhere like Yemen, because although we...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: I have some experience of autism in my family, and I have always thought it does not take much to diagnose autism—it is not a costly affair and it can be done quickly—so I do not understand why there is a three-year waiting list, but perhaps the right hon. Gentleman has more experience than me on this.

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: Is the right hon. Gentleman’s group of MPs from different parties looking at other models, such as how the Germans provide healthcare through their equivalent of the NHS via a combination of private and national means? It seems to me that we are going to have to consider that seriously if we are to get a really first-class national health service.

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Bob Stewart: Forgive me for not being here earlier, Madam Deputy Speaker. I thank the hon. Lady for letting me intervene on her. As I understand it, this measure will be tapered, so someone who is earning below £16,250 a year will be better off. It is only as people get to the top end of earnings that it will apply. Moreover, it will not come in until the summer, when we look at the national...

Armed Forces: Historical Cases (23 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: It was a political decision in one case to allow someone’s sentence to be reduced from 105 years to only three years, so surely a political decision could be made to sort out this problem.

Armed Forces: Historical Cases (23 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: On behalf of so many other Members, I pay huge tribute, which is not often said, to the politicians of Northern Ireland who have been under huge threat. They have been under just as much threat as members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary or the armed forces, and every day they continue to do their duty to look after their constituents. We pay tribute to you.

Armed Forces: Historical Cases (23 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: My hon. and gallant Friend is making a great speech, and I thank him for letting me intervene. I am increasingly worried, because 38 years ago I gave my word to two men under my command who had been involved in a fatal shooting that if they went to court having been charged with manslaughter and were found not guilty, they would never hear anything again. I gave my word, and it looks as...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: Does my hon. Friend agree that the regularisation law passed by the Israeli Government last Monday makes a two-state solution even more difficult, because settlements that previously were illegal are now legal under Israeli law?

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: The main point of the armed forces covenant is to ensure good morale in our armed forces. Maintenance of morale is the second most important principle of war and has been described as “a positive state of mind derived from inspired political and military leadership, a shared sense of purpose and values, well-being, perceptions of worth and group cohesion.” It is thus at the heart...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: I absolutely—and graciously—accept that point. When I went to Bosnia, I learned this lesson. The three main opponents always came to me and said, “How many men and women do you have under your command?”, and I would say, “Lots. How many do you think?” They would say, “Between 3,000 and 4,000.” I had 800. Those men and women were acting like that...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: I thank my hon. and gallant Friend for that very good intervention. The armed forces covenant will require constant care and attention. It is a responsive document that must interact with what is happening at the time, and hopefully, it will become even more effective. Finally, to speak sharply, I want to complain to the Minister, who is sitting there complacently. There is not one regular...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: May I remind the House that in the 1970s and 1980s, armed forces personnel were specifically ordered not to wear uniform in public because of the Provisional IRA and other terrorist threats? That is one reason why we did not see people wandering around in uniform.

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Bob Stewart: A fine regiment.
