Natalie McGarry: Does the hon.

Natalie McGarry: To echo what my hon. Friend the Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson) said, the Secretary of State will be well aware that the maximum stake on fixed odds betting terminals is £100, which is 50 times the permitted cap on other high-street fruit machines.

Turkey: Human Rights and the Political Situation — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (9 Mar 2017)

Natalie McGarry: I offer my congratulations to the right hon. Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) and the co-sponsors of the debate. It is not only timeous but imperative.

Scotland: Demography and Devolution — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (9 Mar 2017)

Natalie McGarry: I wish the hon. Gentleman a happy birthday and congratulate him on securing this debate. He is making an important point. One of the few issues that unites political parties in Scotland is the need to reintroduce the post-study work visa.

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Natalie McGarry: My hon. Friend is making an important point. We respect the right of the Americans to decide their President, but that is not what this debate is about; it is about our values, our constituents and what the situation means to us. If this Parliament is an embodiment of our country’s values, to paraphrase Jane Austen, are the shades of Parliament to be thus polluted?

Us Immigration Policy (30 Jan 2017)

Natalie McGarry: A country must be judged by the company it keeps. How will the Secretary of State answer should history judge that it took the Prime Minister so long to condemn President Trump’s Executive order because, after cosying up to him, she set off to sign trade deals to arm the increasingly dictatorial and out-of-control President Erdogan?

Jobcentre Plus Offices: Closure (30 Jan 2017)

Natalie McGarry: Contrary to the Minister’s assertion, it was confirmed to Glasgow’s MPs at meetings with DWP Ministers and representatives before Christmas that the Department used Google Maps. The Government have stated that they are consulting in areas where service users would be forced to travel more than 3 miles or for more than 20 minutes on public transport. I have checked, and it takes 23 minutes...
