Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: My hon. Friend is talking about carbon capture. Does he agree that, instead of wasting billions of pounds of the public’s money on new nuclear, the Government should be investing in projects like St Fergus, which in a very few years could be storing at least 5.7 gigatonnes of carbon, or 150 times Scotland’s 2016 emissions?

Imprisonment of Catalan Leaders (15 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: Is it not the case, Minister, that any country that seeks to perpetrate a human rights abuse will claim that its legal systems are robust, and that it is happening under the rule of law? What criteria do his Government place on speaking out when free speech is challenged in this way?

Government Plan for Net Zero Emissions — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: On that balanced economy, the CBI, while acknowledging the offshore wind success story, said that investment in onshore wind and solar has stalled for political reasons, and urges this UK Tory Government to take politics off the table for onshore wind. Will they do that?

Government Plan for Net Zero Emissions — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: I congratulate the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton). She said that everyone in this room is committed to net zero; she is correct about that. She also said that things must go further and faster, and that we must see a strategy and concrete policies from the UK Government. I agree with her on the need for targets, tests and scrutiny, as well as on her points about...

Government Plan for Net Zero Emissions — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: I will not take any interventions, because I want the Minister to have time to respond. The Scottish National party Scottish Government are leading by example, redoubling efforts to end Scotland’s contribution to climate change by 2045. The Secretary-General of the United Nations described Scotland’s holistic approach to tackling climate change as “a qualified success,” and called on...

Us Tariffs: Scotch Whisky (7 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: These tariffs will cause concern not just in my constituency but across Scotland. Can the Minister confirm that since last Thursday there has been no direct contact between him or any other UK Minister and the US Administration over this issue?

Us Tariffs: Scotch Whisky (7 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: Why not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Terminally Ill People (7 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: Thank you, Mr Speaker. This Government are stringing terminally ill people and their families along. They already have the evidence from stakeholders and from what is happening in Scotland. When will they do what they should for these people and their families and scrap the six-month rule, get implicit consent in place, and make the situation one of fairness and dignity for people who are dying?

Brexit Negotiations (3 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: Could the Prime Minister outline his thinking on the principle of the Northern Ireland Assembly reviewing and voting on these arrangements every four years? Is it because, if circumstances change, it has a right to change its mind?

Business of the House (3 Oct 2019)

Drew Hendry: Citizens Advice and Macmillan told me that there are extreme difficulties for the terminally ill over explicit consent for accessing universal credit. These organisations are being ignored by this Government, which is preventing them from providing vital support. Can we have a debate in Government time on why the Department for Work and Pensions allows implicit consent for other services, but...

International Climate Action (26 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: I also thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of her statement and welcome her to her position. The statement focuses on the international situation, but we are in a climate emergency. Although what we do abroad matters, what we do here is even more important. In Scotland, the landmark legislation passed its final stage in the Scottish Parliament yesterday. The Scottish Government...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: In light of the damning indictment of Scotland’s highest court, the Court of Session, and then the judgment of the Supreme Court, this Prime Minister has refused to resign and will not apologise. If even the Queen cannot trust him, why should anybody else?

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: It is reassuring to see that we are indeed carrying on where we left off. As a senior lawyer, does the Attorney General agree that any attempt to describe the considered, unanimous and unambiguous decision of the Supreme Court as a constitutional coup is nothing more than constitutional bull?

Written Answers — Treasury: Taxation: Electronic Government (9 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps he is taking to reduce waiting times for businesses seeking support through Making Tax Digital's telephone lines.

Written Answers — Treasury: Taxation: Electronic Government (9 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate has been made of the revenue lost to the public purse due to businesses inability to navigate the new Making Tax Digital system.

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: I thank all hon. Members who took part in today’s debate and the Backbench Business Committee for the opportunity. I must correct the Minister, because the CPMR is not a think tank. It is a representative organisation of local authorities from across Europe, and I know that because I used to be its vice-president. We asked the Minister to clarify the flexibility and timetable, but we have...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: In that case, I will accept the Minister’s comments, but he will be judged not on cheap words but on the actions of this Government and on whether they fail our communities. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House notes with concern that the Government is more than half a year behind its schedule to provide details of post-2020 funding through a UK Shared Prosperity Fund;...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: rose—

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: I thought the hon. Gentleman was inviting me to intervene on him. He mentions extra money for Scotland, but he does not take into account the cumulative cuts of £12 billion that we have had over the whole decade.

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Drew Hendry: I beg to move, That this House notes with concern that the Government is more than half a year behind its schedule to provide details of post-2020 funding through a UK Shared Prosperity Fund; supports the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s recommendation that the Fund should at the very least match the £2.4 billion per year currently allocated through the EU structural funds; and calls on the...
