This will undoubtedly be an exciting time for them. The Defence Secretary...

Defence: Armed Forces Personnel (15 Mar 2021)

Stewart McDonald: On behalf of the Scottish National party, I send our condolences to Sergeant Hillier’s family. The issue of pay rises and satisfaction more generally has been a bone of contention in the House for many years. The numbers speak for themselves; four in 10 serving personnel do not think that the pay they receive reflects the work they do. Why?

Defence: Armed Forces Personnel (15 Mar 2021)

Stewart McDonald: Yet again, the Minister is rather poorly briefed. The lowest-paid members of the armed forces in Scotland actually pay less in tax.

But let me press him on this: when the integrated review is published tomorrow, will it contain something—anything at...

There are two...
