National Security Bill (6 Jun 2022)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis), the Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee.

I...

National Security Bill (6 Jun 2022)

Stuart McDonald: My hon. Friend makes an important point, which we will have to look at. There are other provisions in legislation that provide protection for those involved in the work of agencies, so we do not think that the case for this new carve-out has been made at all. Part 2 will also need close scrutiny; we turn here to state threats prevention and investigation measures. I do not think that any of...

National Security Bill (6 Jun 2022)

Stuart McDonald: Yes, absolutely. The versions of such an amendment that I have seen look very promising and we would like to give our support to that if we can. In conclusion, we need a Bill, and we certainly support this Bill on Second Reading. However, there is a lot for us to get our teeth into, both in terms of what is in it and what is not. We look forward to engaging critically but constructively on...

Justice: Access to Legal Aid (24 May 2022)

So during his consultation, will the...

Given that cross-party MPs have today found that the now Justice Secretary presided over a “disaster and a betrayal of our allies” and “a lack of seriousness, grip or leadership at a time of national...

Foreign National Offender Removal Flights (18 May 2022)

Stuart McDonald: I, too, thank the Minister for advance sight of his statement, but I do not thank him either for the fact of the statement, which I agree was completely pointless, or for the overblown rhetoric it contained—rhetoric that I more commonly associate with the Minister’s boss than the Minister, who I have a great deal of respect for. On that note, my first question is, why can we not try to...
