Virtual Participation in Proceedings during the Pandemic (Temporary Orders) (No. 2) (30 Dec 2020)

Patrick Grady: I just want to say that we also welcome the return of full virtual participation. I think it is regrettable that the Government have not given us remote voting.

Friends the Members for Glasgow East (David Linden) and for Midlothian (Owen Thompson), who will act as Tellers for...

Business of the House (17 Dec 2020)

Patrick Grady: I echo all the thanks and good wishes to everyone who has kept us safe this year. I am increasingly concerned about how the Leader of the House defines and understands the parliamentary sovereignty for which he has campaigned for so long.
