Manston Update (28 Nov 2022)

Stuart McDonald: I thank the Minister for bringing his statement to the House, but it is another day and another very disturbing development.

The Minister is right that it is important to emphasise that there is a very small risk to the UK population, but the converse is that, to those from nationalities that do not...

backbench business: Infected Blood Inquiry and Compensation Framework — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Stuart McDonald: It is indeed the personal stories that bring home the full horror of this scandal. I pay tribute to my constituent John Prior, a severe haemophiliac who was infected with hepatitis C through contaminated blood products at Yorkhill Children’s Hospital.

Scottish Referendum Legislation: Supreme Court Decision (23 Nov 2022)

Stuart McDonald: The Secretary of State keeps patronising us about what the priorities of the people of Scotland are. The fact is that the people of Scotland keep voting for the SNP and for an independence referendum as the means to deliver on their priorities.
