Business of the House (16 Apr 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (27 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: The Foreign Secretary will be aware of calls across the House, including from the Scottish National party group leader, my right hon. Friend the Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford), to tackle some of the financial measures, and that is very important.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I know this has been said by others, but it is worth repeating that Russia is a great country, and its people have contributed so much to the international community and to broader human civilisation.

Stephen Gethins: As usual, my hon. Friend makes an excellent point.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: We absolutely believe it. In these times, we should be investing in our security infrastructure and in our relationship with our European partners. Let us look at the rebuilding of Bosnia: it has taken 25 years, and it is an ongoing project. If we look at security and areas where we have taken our eye off the ball—let us look at Libya, where we took our eye off the ball—we see...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: What I will say to the right hon. Gentleman—this is why this debate is important—is that £160 billion, at a time when GDP is due to go down the plughole, is money we can ill afford. [Interruption.] “Says who?” says an hon. Member from the Treasury Bench. Says your own Government figures. Remarkable! Courageous indeed from the Government Front Bench, but I...

Leaving the Eu: Fisheries Management (20 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: It is a big concern with the Conservatives that it is always somebody else’s fault. When the Conservatives took us into the common fisheries policy, Scotland’s fishermen were described as expendable, so they are used to Scottish Tory sell-outs. But, given the matter of days involved here, even Scotland’s fishermen will be surprised at how quickly this one was turned around....

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: My hon. Friend is making an exceptionally powerful and compelling speech. Does he agree that his friend Yohannes is one in a long line of refugees from places including Germany, Hungary and Iraq who have made a significant economic and other contribution to society across the UK?

Exiting the European Union: Exit Negotiations (15 Mar 2018)

Exiting the European Union: Exit Negotiations (15 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I am aware that some in the right hon. Gentleman’s party have accused others in that party of fantasy politics. Does he believe that any transition period can be based on World Trade Organisation principles?

Stephen Gethins: Will the Minister give way?

Banking in North Ayrshire (14 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I salute my hon. Friend’s courage in getting through the debate. Does she agree that rural areas are particularly badly hit by bank closures? I am thinking of those in North East Fife, where RBS closed all but one, leaving a huge commute for those who need banking services the most.

Stephen Gethins: rose—

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I add the Scottish National party’s welcome to our colleagues and friends from Afghanistan. Here we are with yet another European Union debate. I was elected almost three years ago. After I was appointed Europe spokesperson, the European Union Referendum Bill was introduced. Europe has dominated my time here, but that is because it is important. Almost three years on, I think it is...

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: As usual, the hon. Lady makes an excellent and powerful point, and hon. Members opposite would do well to listen to her—in fact, the hon. Members beside her might do well to do so too sometimes. I will come on to the finances that she rightly raises, but before I do I want to talk about the broader impact on public services in areas such as access to the single market, which is so...

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Point of Order: [Day 1] (14 Mar 2018)

Stephen Gethins: I would like to make a little bit of progress, but I will come to the hon. Members in just a moment. I am using this Government’s figures. We need to have a real and proper debate about how we plug the gaps in tax and in GDP.
