Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: I am grateful to the right hon. Member for Rother Valley (Sir Kevin Barron) for securing this important debate on the tobacco control plan for England. I congratulate him on his work over the years and, as a testament to that, on the general consensus today. Scotland has its own strong tobacco control strategy. The Scottish Government have implemented and overseen a number of progressive...

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. The tobacco companies are indeed the villains in this scenario. For the last 20 years, the UK has had an effective and well-resourced anti-smuggling strategy, and HMRC’s tax gap estimates have fallen by about a half since the peak in 2000, but there is every reason to fear that that success is under serious threat and that the progressive...

Grenfell Tower: Business of the House (19 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: My constituent Mrs Withers has been caring for her diabetic grandson since 13 August. She has thus far received no financial support due to non-co-operation from the child’s mother, who has been given until November to respond to requests to transfer benefits to the grandmother. May we have a debate in Government time about the financial support available for those who take on...

Grenfell Tower (19 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: Reacting to incidents such as Grenfell is always challenging. After the Prime Minister’s comments yesterday, there are more questions about the Government’s handling of the fire and its aftermath. In Scotland, a working group is reviewing evidence on fire suppression measures, including sprinklers to ensure the safety of residents in high-rise buildings. Sprinklers are only one of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: Scotland (19 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: The port of Grangemouth in my constituency handles 80% of Scotland’s container traffic. Will the Minister advise us what discussions he has had with his Scottish counterpart regarding any post-Brexit delays at borders and traffic chaos or road jams in the Grangemouth area?

Petition - Consumer Rights (11 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: I rise to present a petition relating to consumer rights. The petition stems from a problem that a constituent of mine—[Interruption.]

Petition - Consumer Rights (11 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. As I was saying, the petition arises from a problem experienced by my constituent Mrs Johnston with a firm called R & J Leather, of Uddingston, in purchasing a three-piece suite. The terms of the petition are fairly self-explanatory. It states: The petition of residents of Linlithgow and East Falkirk, Declares that the Consumer Rights Act of 2015 does not do...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Disabled People: Independent Living (9 Oct 2017)

Martyn Day: Every week around 800 Motability vehicles are taken away from disabled people across the UK as a result of the transition to PIP and, according to the most recent DWP statistic on reassessments, 48% of claimants receive a lower level or no award when transferring from DLA to PIP. Does the Minister really believe that taking money away from disabled people on low incomes will help them to live...

Business of the House (14 Sep 2017)

Martyn Day: I hope that the House will join me in praising the efforts of Epilepsy Connections in working with people who face this condition, such as my constituent Carol McNeil, and supporting them with the challenges and difficulties they face. Perhaps we could have a debate in Government time about the organisation’s concerns about access to face-to-face support for epileptics at all stages of...

Martyn Day: What assessment he has made of the potential effect of the UK leaving the EU on the functioning of the different national legal systems in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Attorney General: Leaving EU: UK Legal Systems (14 Sep 2017)

Martyn Day: The president of the Law Society of Scotland has said that there needs to be a “whole of governance” approach to the UK withdrawal from the EU which takes into account the devolved Administrations. Does the Solicitor General agree with that statement?

Business of the House (7 Sep 2017)

Martyn Day: My constituent David Hemphill suffers from myotonic dystrophy, and previously qualified for a mobility allowance of £224 a month. When that was removed in December, he lost his mobility vehicle and was instead given an Access to Work grant for taxis, which costs £560 a month. May we have a statement, or a debate in Government time, about the detrimental costs of such changes to the...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (7 Sep 2017)

Martyn Day: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (7 Sep 2017)

Martyn Day: Leaving the EU single market and customs union would be an unprecedented act of self-harm to our economy, especially if the UK Government fail to negotiate a trade agreement with the EU. Will the Secretary of State confirm that if he fails to reach a deal within the two-year deadline, the UK will remain a member of the EU under the existing terms?

Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Martyn Day: Many individuals who convert to another religion or renounce faith altogether face being ostracised by sections of their community and even by family members, making them more vulnerable to hate crime. May we have a statement or a debate in Government time on what is being done to tackle crimes motivated by anti-apostasy?

Contaminated Blood (20 Jul 2017)

Martyn Day: I thank the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) for asking this urgent question and pay tribute to her for continuously pushing on this important subject to ensure that we get justice for those so tragically affected. The inquiry must get the right answers, and it must command the confidence of those affected. Will the Minister confirm when a decision will be made as to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Election Expenses and Political Donations (20 Jul 2017)

Martyn Day: There has been significant media coverage of the 2015 general election expenses issue, with the Tories being fined the maximum £70,000, and with an hon. Member reportedly having been charged. In March, the Electoral Commission chair, Sir John Holmes, said: “There is a risk that some political parties might come to view the payment of these fines as a cost of doing business”....
