Treasury: Living Standards (27 Apr 2021)

John Nicolson: My goodness, what a disastrous week for the UK Government. While they have been mired in scandal and slithering through sleaze, the SNP has committed to doubling the Scottish child payment and carers allowance and to introducing a new winter heating payment. Does the Chancellor accept that these are more noble social objectives than enriching well-placed cronies?

Online Anonymity and Anonymous Abuse (24 Mar 2021)

John Nicolson: Online abuse is a curse. Once upon a time when kids got bullied at school, that bullying stopped at the school gates. Even if they did not talk about their ordeals—and sadly, we know that many children feel that they cannot—back at home, in a loving household, they were safe. All that has changed with social media. Today, the bullies and trolls pursue their victims home and online. We...

Scottish Independence Referendum — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (22 Mar 2021)

John Nicolson: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross). He has clearly not heard that the Hamilton report has found no breach of the ministerial code. I know he would want to be gracious and to congratulate the First Minister. I understand people who once opposed Scottish independence. My dad saw himself as a proud Scottish patriot, but a youth forged in war and then the values...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Live Events and Cultural Festivals: Government-backed Insurance Scheme (18 Mar 2021)

John Nicolson: As if the Government’s refusal to underwrite live music insurance was not bad enough for the industry, the UK Government rejected a deal with the EU that would have allowed artists and their crews to tour without visas, as they did pre Brexit. At her recent Select Committee appearance, the Minister said that as far as she knew, no negotiations with individual states were taking place to...

Offshore Wind Farms: Unexploded Ordnance (17 Mar 2021)

John Nicolson: I thank all the people and constituents who asked for this debate, and the hon. Members who have spoken. I felt the Minister’s pain as she tried to cope with saying “East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow” a couple of times. I was interested to hear the Minister say that whales, dolphins and porpoises are legally protected. They are not being protected if they are being blown up,...

Offshore Wind Farms: Unexploded Ordnance (17 Mar 2021)

All of us welcome the extraordinary potential of our...

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (10 Mar 2021)

John Nicolson: I thank the hon. Member for Solihull (Julian Knight) for securing the debate and Members across the House for their contributions so far. How we have all missed culture and sport, which are the very heartbeat of our national life and which have been put on ice by this grim pandemic. I know that other Members ache, like me, to hear the roar of a crowd at a gig, to sit lost in music at a...

LGBT Conversion Therapy — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Mar 2021)

John Nicolson: “Converting gays”—just wonder for a moment about how primitive that concept is. It is a cruel hangover from a darker time—a time when to be gay, lesbian or trans was to be flawed or inadequate. I do not know why I am gay. I do not know why I have green eyes or curly hair, but I do know that no one made me gay; I was born gay. When I was younger, to borrow from Alfred Kinsey, I would...
