Women and Equalities: Women’s State Pension Age (12 Oct 2017)

Patrick Grady: Does the Minister recognise that signatures to early-day motions in this House since the general election show that there is cross-party support, and probably majority support in this House, for justice for the Women Against State Pension Inequality? If and when the WASPI question comes to the House on a Backbench Business motion or an Opposition day motion, will the Government sit on their...

Petition - the Rohingya in Myanmar: Support for Witnesses of Terror Attacks Overseas (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: I am very grateful to have this opportunity before the recess to raise the issue of support for witnesses of terror attacks overseas. I had originally hoped to bring this matter to the House as a Backbench Business debate, and I am grateful to the previous Backbench Business Committee and Members from across the House—and some former Members now—who had supported my bid, which...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: I warmly welcome the opportunity for this debate, which builds on the heavily subscribed debate in Westminster Hall on 12 July, and makes up for the Chamber debate that was cancelled as a result of the general election and Dissolution. Like Members and parties across the House, the Scottish National party is clear that abuse faced by political candidates, particularly women and those from...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: Yes, absolutely. We might even say that what is happening online is being replicated in some offline publications, or perhaps vice versa. The whole thing has to be toned down. As politicians, we have a role to play. The sad reality is that the President of the United States won his election after a campaign built on playing to the worst side of people, playing up to Islamophobia, insulting...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: The hon. Lady is absolutely right. That is why it is important to call out abuse in such circumstances, and to have debates of this kind. I congratulate the Government again on making available the time for it.

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: I think a consensus is emerging on that. My hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) drew attention to the anomaly whereby, although one of our colleagues was able to anonymise their address on the ballot, their partner was standing for the council and therefore had to publish the address, which completely negated the arrangement.

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: I am a little bit conscious of others wishing to speak, but I will.

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: As I have said, I think a degree of consensus is emerging on that point. Perhaps the Minister will address it when he sums up the debate. I want to stress what Tasmina had to go through. She was subjected to language that I will not repeat in the Chamber because it would be unparliamentary, although it is not unparliamentary when it comes from the President of the United States; let us put it...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women: Scotland-Malawi Relationship (13 Sep 2017)

Patrick Grady: I am grateful to you for calling me, Mr Chope, because I appreciate that I came late to the Chamber. I was detained in a Select Committee, so my apologies—pepani chomene. I am grateful for the opportunity to offer a few brief reflections on Scotland’s relationship with Malawi, and congratulate—yewo chomene; zikomo kwambiri—my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow East...
