Select Committee on International Development (18 Jan 2018)

Chris Law: The report is clear in highlighting where the UK Government have been slow to act. I hope they have been listening and, in particular, will now allow these 70 experts in gender-based violence to get out there as soon as possible. Does the Chair agree, however, that particular attention must be given to a clear and decisive plan for repatriation, not just on security and safety but on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Yemen: Humanitarian Aid (17 Jan 2018)

Chris Law: As we all know, there are no winners in war, and in comments to The Daily Telegraph before Christmas the Secretary of State correctly said that Saudi Arabia has “no excuses” for blocking food and fuel shipments to Yemen. Is it not therefore sheer hypocrisy and simply inexcusable that her Government are providing billions of pounds-worth of arms sales to Saudi Arabia when 7 million...

Enslavement of Black Africans (Libya) — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: I want to touch on that important point. We learned some painful lessons around Iraq. In terms of our involvement in Libya, was there preparedness and thought about medium to long-term plans and strategies at the end of the conflict, whatever its outcome, or was it a posthumous question at the end of, “Oh God, here we are now—what do we do next?”

Enslavement of Black Africans (Libya) — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I begin by thanking those who initiated the petition and have secured over a quarter of a million signatures—an incredible feat. It is vital that we bring this hugely important issue to the forefront in Parliament today, and from what I have heard in the previous speeches, all of us in this Chamber feel very passionate about...

Israel: Us Embassy (7 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: President Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv is not only reckless and wrong but throws the entire peace process into jeopardy. There is no denying that this decision seriously hinders a two-state solution to the conflict. The reaction from the international community has been overwhelming. Pope Francis said, “I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Future Trade Agreements: Agriculture (7 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: As everyone in this House will know—as a fellow Scot, the Secretary of State will know it very clearly—Scotland has some of the largest protected food names in the EU, with high-value products such as Scotch beef and Scotch salmon accounting for some £700 million in sales, yet there has been absolutely nothing from the Government on whether that will continue post Brexit....

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Superfast Broadband (6 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: In an area that is entirely reserved, the UK Government allocation of £21 million to Scotland’s R100 programme—the Reaching 100% programme—is less than the amount that Devon and Somerset received. Is the Secretary of State not ashamed that, on his watch, he has allowed Scotland to be so chronically underfunded?

World AIDS Day 2017 (5 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank the hon. Member for Cardiff South and Penarth (Stephen Doughty) for bringing this important and timely debate and for his continuing work with the all-party parliamentary group. This debate is an opportunity to reflect on the estimated 35 million people who have died from AIDS-related illnesses and to show solidarity...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: The Fraser of Allander Institute predicts that not 80,000, but 139,000 jobs are at stake. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that is not talking Scotland down; those are the facts of the matter when it comes to Brexit? We are just about at a cliff edge now.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Chris Law: There is no such thing.
