Prayers - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : The Growth Plan (23 Sep 2022)

Marion Fellows: The current Chancellor said in his statement: “We want this country to be an entrepreneurial share-owning democracy.” I extend an invitation to him to come to Motherwell town centre and Wishaw Cross, and try to explain this pie-in-the-sky ideology to folk in my constituency who are scared to go to sleep at night in case they cannot wake up and keep their houses the next day or feed their...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Cost Increases: Food Producers and Consumers (8 Sep 2022)

Marion Fellows: What recent assessment he has made of the impact of rising costs on (a) food producers and (b) the cost of food for consumers.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Cost Increases: Food Producers and Consumers (8 Sep 2022)

Marion Fellows: I welcome the Minister to his new place. National Farmers Union of Scotland president Martin Kennedy has urged the new Prime Minister to immediately, on behalf of all food producers and consumers, “address the brutal ‘here and now’ facing farming and food production whilst delivering an unequivocable commitment to the importance of food security across the UK”. Given that the Prime...

Electoral Commission Committee: Elections Act 2022: Regulation and Electoral Process (8 Sep 2022)

Marion Fellows: According to openDemocracy, between 2010 and 2019 the Tory party received £3.5 million from Russian-linked donors, yet instead of countering undue influence from oligarchs or shady think-tanks, the Elections Act weakens rules on donations from overseas, making it easier to pay for influence. The new report by the Institute for Constitutional and Democratic Research has set out a simple...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Marion Fellows: Mr Deputy Speaker, I hope you caught the Prime Minister’s surreal bravura performance, which was rather clouded by the fact he did not realise that his own Government tabled the motion. There was not a cheep about being booted out by his own party, finally, after breaching his own rules on partying while my constituents could not hold their loved one’s hand as they were dying. There was...

Defence: Cost of Living: Armed Forces Personnel (18 Jul 2022)

Marion Fellows: What recent assessment his Department has made of the impact of the rise in the cost of living on armed forces personnel.

Defence: Cost of Living: Armed Forces Personnel (18 Jul 2022)

Marion Fellows: Will the Minister confirm that the cost of a new £250 million royal yacht, whose principal use will be for champagne receptions, is not coming out of the Ministry of Defence budget during a cost of living crisis, when personnel have not received a real-terms rise for a number of years and while bases in Scotland have been closed and we have the smallest UK standing Army ever?

Work and Pensions: Disabled People: Support in Work (11 Jul 2022)

Marion Fellows: What steps she is taking with Cabinet colleagues to help ensure that disabled people are supported in work.

Work and Pensions: Disabled People: Support in Work (11 Jul 2022)

Marion Fellows: The UK has the highest levels of in-work poverty this century, which, as the Minister will know, disproportionately impacts groups facing higher living costs, such as disabled people. In the middle of this Tory man-made cost of living crisis, will she ensure that the UK Government’s health and disability White Paper addresses the suitability of the current statutory sick pay system,...

Post Office: Compensation for Horizon Scandal (30 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I thank the Minister both for his statement and for prior sight of it. I also thank all members of the APPG, both former and current, because they have been the power behind this. I merely chair it. I came along quite a way into all of this, and I am grateful for the help I have had. The Minister has been diligent in his work leading to today’s announcement on interim...

Steel Safeguards (29 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: Scotland’s whisky producers have already suffered significantly from Trump-era tariffs of 25% and the current 100% tariff imposed by the Indian Government. The prospect of retaliatory tariffs from India and South Korea is alarming, especially when the Asia-Pacific makes up a quarter of Scotland’s whisky export markets. What is the Secretary of State doing to mitigate the likelihood of...

Delivery of Public Services (28 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: It is a pleasure to conclude the Back-Bench contributions to this debate. This Tory Government’s catastrophic Brexit and austerity agenda are fast pushing the UK economy into recession, as evidenced by the fact that the UK has the slowest growth of any G7 economy, according to the OECD. The chief economist at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation has been highly critical of the length of time it...

Delivery of Public Services (28 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: No, I am not going to take interventions. I need to finish and allow the Front Benchers to fight it out. With the UK Government’s failure to back a Bill from my hon. Friend the Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) to absolutely outlaw fire and rehire, they have shown that they actually have no time for this. They are encouraging this abhorrent practice—P&O being...

Delivery of Public Services (28 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: It is a quote, Sir—a quote from the Prime Minister.

Delivery of Public Services (28 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: Oh, right then: the Prime Minister has threatened to privatise a body part out of Government agencies, including the DVLA and the Passport Office as a result of the public facing lengthy waits for vital documents. This Government have to go, this Prime Minister has to go, and when Scotland is an independent country in Europe, we will be much better off.

Heart and Circulatory Diseases (Covid-19) (23 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing this important debate and for his passion in delivering his speech today. We all know and value the work he does to raise issues for his constituents here and in Westminster Hall. I also thank Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and the British Heart Foundation for the valuable work that they do. I start by pointing out that...

Standards in Public Life (7 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: If the House divides at the end of this debate, I shall be voting with the Opposition. Standards in public life are a foundation of our democracy. We must be able to have trust in those in public life, and we need Ministers, and especially a Prime Minister, to adhere to the ministerial code. Breaches of the Nolan principles and the ministerial code affect us all. It is fundamental that those...

Standards in Public Life (7 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: I will withdraw the word “lying”, and thank you for your guidance, Mr Deputy Speaker, but I think my constituents struggle a bit with “terminological inexactitude”. How does this Prime Minister deal with breaches of the ministerial code? Simple. You change it, or ignore it. So, nae openness. Partygate damaged our democracy, according to the Health Secretary, and since St Andrew’s...

Standards in Public Life (7 Jun 2022)

Marion Fellows: Yes, I think that the Prime Minister—
