Counter-Daesh Update (3 Jul 2018)

Martin Docherty: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of the statement and of course, in the first instance, welcome the progress being made towards the eradication of what is a most despicable and cowardly terrorist organisation.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Nato (20 Jun 2018)

Martin Docherty: As the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) said earlier, this debate could have been tabled at any time over the coming weeks, so I wonder whether the Government have allowed this debate to go ahead today in order to make Her Majesty’s Opposition feel slightly uncomfortable and to draw the team of the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) to the...

Martin Docherty: In terms of future investment in something that we do not want to have to use, does the right hon.

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report: Points of Order (20 Jun 2018)

Martin Docherty: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. This month is Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month, yet as we celebrate the distinct and important contribution of our Gypsy, Traveller and Roma community —an ancient history across these islands—one of our closest allies, through the office of the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Italy, is systematically targeting the Roma community of Italy.

Glasgow School of Art (19 Jun 2018)

Martin Docherty: Prior to my being elected to this House, I had the great honour not only of being the bailie for Garnethill, in which the GSA is found, but of having done most of my postgraduate study in the bowels of the Mack building.

Points of Order (12 Jun 2018)

Martin Docherty: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. First, may I congratulate you on staying in the Chair? It seems that we both studied comparative politics at the University of Essex.

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Royal Navy Fisheries Protection (11 Jun 2018)

Martin Docherty: Concerning the Royal Navy, SNP Members are most interested to hear whether the modernising defence programme will be grounded in the vacuous “global Britain” speak of Brexiteers, or if it will actually acknowledge the UK’s geostrategic location? Will the Secretary of State assure SNP Members that, unlike the 2010 and 2015 strategic defence and security reviews, the...

Two hundred days have passed since my constituent Jagtar Singh Johal was held in India without charge, with accusations of torture and with trial by media.

Nevertheless, I have now written to the Prime Minister twice, without formal response other than a...

UK Automotive Industry: Job Losses — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Martin Docherty: It is good, as always, to see you in the Chair, Mr Bone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) on securing the debate. Critically, he highlighted the supply chain, which goes beyond the idea of the automotive industry and reaches every part of the industrial complex across the UK. The hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), who is no longer in their...
