Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Funding Trends (19 Dec 2017)

Martyn Day: The Scottish Government already pay nurses and care assistants the highest rate in the UK, have maintained the nursing bursary, and have now committed to a 3% pay rise for those earning £30,000 or less. Does the Secretary of State recognise that his failure similarly to value NHS staff in England is one reason why England’s nursing vacancy rate is more than double that of Scotland?

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (18 Dec 2017)

Martyn Day: I start by thanking the Secretary of State for his statement and Dame Judith for her work. We must not forget that this interim report comes only six months after one of the most devastating high-rise fires the world has seen, and our thoughts at this time of year are with those who lost everything in the catastrophe. I wish to repeat the call that my hon. Friend the Member for Cumbernauld,...

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

Martyn Day: The key to this question has to be ensuring sustainable delivery of the NHS. The Minister may wish to look at the model in Scotland, where we have boosted investment and listened to the needs of our healthcare workers. By stark contrast, the UK Government seem intent on burning their bridges with NHS staff with their cost cutting and special financial measures. When will the UK Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: EU Convergence Uplift Funding (7 Dec 2017)

Martyn Day: Back in September, key farming organisations, including the NFUS, wrote to the Minister on convergence uplift. I have been told that the Government have not yet responded.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Devolution (6 Dec 2017)

If so, how does he propose to amend it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (4 Dec 2017)

Martyn Day: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck, and to take part in this important debate secured by the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick). It has been a consensual debate across the Chamber, which is extremely welcome. This will be the first time that my words have ever been signed, as well as it being the first time in a parliamentary debate; I certainly...

Martyn Day: What plans does the Minister have to meet the workers and unions in the DVSA before 4 December, when more than 2,000 staff will be taking strike action over concerns about the new test? What assurance can he give me that the safety issues in question will be addressed before the test is rolled out?

International Men’s Day — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

Martyn Day: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I thank the hon. Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) for securing this debate on International Men’s Day, which will take place on Sunday 19 November. I am grateful to him for his detailed presentation and for reminding us that it is an international event. It is a pleasure to recognise that it is now promoted in over 80...

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Martyn Day: I apologise to the hon. Members for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) and Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath (Lesley Laird) for leaving during their speeches. I have had too much water to fight the cold that I am suffering from; there was no disrespect intended. I always thought that my constituency was the friendliest place in the country; I have learned today that it obviously is, given the number of...

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Martyn Day: Perhaps what Alex Salmond was hinting at was that when the devolution referendums took place, it took from 1979 to 1997 to get a re-run. That assumption was made without the belief that circumstances would change as materially as they are now about to.
