International Trade: Commonwealth Countries: Trade Agreements (17 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: Ironically, a trade deal between India and the European Union is more likely to be agreed by the remaining EU27, as two of the main stumbling blocks are whisky and visas, which mainly involve the United Kingdom. Therefore, will the Secretary of State advise me, the House and my constituents at the Auchentoshan distillery and the Loch Lomond distillery how they will seek to overcome that when...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (17 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: The trans community suffers some of the most profound discrimination across the world. Will the Minister advise the House what discussions are being held with her colleagues in the United States of America, where we are seeing an incremental rolling back of the rights of trans American citizens that fundamentally undermines the principles of America’s liberal democracy?

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: On best practice, I asked the hon. Member for Leigh (Jo Platt) about the Department for Work and Pensions’ workplace assessments. Will the Minister speak to her colleagues in the DWP about how effective they are for adults with ADHD in the workplace?

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: I congratulate the hon. Member on introducing today’s debate. Do they agree that one of the additional complexities in the workplace is the bureaucracy of the workplace assessment? If the Minister takes anything away from today regarding those living with ADHD in adulthood, it should be that that process urgently needs review in terms of its effectiveness and the impact on those with...

HPV Vaccination for Boys — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (2 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I am grateful to the hon. Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale) for bringing this debate today. I participated in the debate in June 2016, which the hon. Member for Finchley and Golders Green (Mike Freer) brought to the Floor of the House. I am delighted to be here for this debate. I also congratulate the hon. Members for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: Evidence of the inhumane and cruel impact of the Government’s flagship universal credit policy is clear for all to see. Its impact has been devastating, and the Prime Minister can no longer bury their head in the sand as they have done with the Windrush scandal. Therefore, will the Prime Minister get a grip and take action to protect families from being forced further into crisis; or...

Martin Docherty: Mr Speaker, let me join you in congratulating the Countess and Earl of Strathearn on the birth of a healthy child, especially today, on the feast day of George, the patron of England. Will the Secretary of State join me and Scottish National party Members in welcoming NATO allies to Scotland for Exercise Joint Warrior? Beyond the all-too-rare sight of complex warships in Scottish waters, does...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Defence Industry (23 Apr 2018)

Martin Docherty: I thank the Secretary of State for his reply. May I also associate SNP Members with his earlier comments about Sergeant Tonroe? One of the ships in the Clyde—actually in Glasgow—last week was Her Danish Majesty’s ship Niels Juel which, like all frontline support ships of the Danish royal navy, is designed and built in Denmark. When small northern European countries of 5...

Syria: Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Martin Docherty: I want to focus on what I would like to call the Westminster paradox. While there are those who have taken the view that the something that must be done was the something done at the weekend, I cannot help but draw the conclusion that instead of reasserting the very best of the international rules-based system, we have set a precedent for an unfortunate and disturbing new normal that will be...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Martin Docherty: It seems this is a week in which the Government have sought to lead the Commonwealth, but have nearly deported its citizens; to defend the international rules-based system by ignoring the United Nations; and to reclaim parliamentary sovereignty by not using it. Will the Prime Minister advise the House on where that all fits in with the plan for a global Britain?

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces: Languages (5 Apr 2018)

Martin Docherty: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many personnel in the (a) Army, (b) RAF and (c) Royal Navy are classed as level 3 or higher linguists in (i) Arabic, (ii) Russian, (iii) Ukrainian, iv) German and (v) French.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: The hon. Gentleman mentioned Veterans for Britain. Is he aware that that organisation consistently gives evidence to the Defence Committee and that—this is relevant to my earlier comments—there is now grave concern about the links between national security and this very debate?

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: Given today’s evidence to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, when clear links were made between Cambridge Analytica, Facebook and GCHQ, there is now a question not only of the electoral system, but of national security.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: The right hon. Gentleman talks about journeys of deceit. He will have noted that no members of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist party have joined us today. Their former vice-chair, Richard Cook, leads a group called the Constitutional Research Council, which gave £425,000 to the Democratic Unionist party during the last general election. Will the right hon. Gentleman join me in...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: I was glad that the Prime Minister started this debate by articulating the fact that this Parliament’s argument was not with the Russian nation or the diversity of its peoples. I am sure that the Foreign Secretary will forgive me for saying this, but some of the comments from Government Front Benchers over the weekend were perhaps unnecessary as we try to promote dialogue at this...
