Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

Douglas Chapman: I express my sympathy with Members from Northern Ireland, who have spoken eloquently on the issues that face them directly and the workforce that they are trying to protect. The Secretary of State in his statement said that, earlier in the year, the Minister for Energy and Industry, the hon. Member for Watford (Richard Harrington) met Boeing about the future relationship with the company....

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Douglas Chapman: Tonight at 5 o’clock, the Catalan Government will make a statement on how they see their future and whether they are to go for independence or another way. That is a decision for them. Given that to date Spain has been unwilling to talk or to accept mediation, and indeed is still issuing threats to Catalan parliamentarians, how does the Minister think that the British Government will...

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Douglas Chapman: In our experiences in Catalonia just last week, it struck all of us who attended, I think, that if that level of violence had been carried out by state police at a football match or a pop concert, the European Union and the Commission would have made a strong statement of condemnation, as would the British Government if a British team been involved in a game at which such violence had taken...

National Shipbuilding Strategy (6 Sep 2017)

Douglas Chapman: The Secretary of State has triggered two search parties in Scotland today. The first relates to the mythical frigate factory referred to earlier and the second is this cup that runneth over. I am sure that people are out on the streets of Glasgow looking for them today.

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Douglas Chapman: I can assure the Minister that I am an extremely calm person. The time we have been waiting for the shipbuilding strategy has become unacceptable.

Going by the weather outside, it is summer. Can she give us a date for when...

All roads lead back to the last...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Douglas Chapman: I will try to make some progress. Just give me a second if that is okay, and I may take an intervention later. The Navy, for example, has more admirals than ships, and not one of those admirals is based in Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales. If there is to be another SDSR, it must balance the strategic defence needs of the whole of the UK. The hon. Member for North Wiltshire (James Gray),...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Douglas Chapman: What a tremendous example: one single minesweeper to deal with the whole of the North sea and the north Atlantic. I am sure everyone in Scotland will sleep easy in their beds tonight. The hon. Member for Aldershot started his speech by talking about the importance of people. The overall issue is that all three services are currently running significantly under strength—I think the...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Douglas Chapman: I am always happy to endorse a neighbouring constituency and the work done there.

There has been much discussion in recent days...
