European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Would my hon. Friend agree that young early-career researchers in the academic sector, for example, are highly mobile and can easily move elsewhere? We should be rolling out the red carpet for them to make sure they stay, but instead we are treating them worse than dirt on our shoes.

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Carol Monaghan: One issue that certainly was not debated during the run-up to the EU referendum was membership of Euratom. Will the Prime Minister now inform people working in nuclear medicine—such as my sister, and many of my constituents—where they will obtain radioactive sources to treat and diagnose cancer when we are outside Euratom?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: STEM Subjects (11 Dec 2017)

Carol Monaghan: I am sure that the Secretary of State will know that STEM teachers in Scotland need a university-level qualification in a STEM subject, so we have retained the professionalism. However, my question is about getting girls into STEM. As we approach Christmas, the gender stereotyping in toys is simply depressing, with boys being presented with technical toys while girls are expected to become...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2017)

Carol Monaghan: The academic community in the north of Ireland might have a way ahead in the light of the recent Brexit negotiations. Will the Secretary of State give the same reassurance to the academic community in Scotland which, as my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry) highlighted, is concerned about the recruitment and retention of EU nationals?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Just to add a little more on that, these isotopes often have a half-life of six hours, which means that within 24 hours they are effectively useless for treatment. We do not have the ability to produce them here so they must be imported. If we are not part of the Euratom treaty, we will have serious problems with cancer treatment. It is not scaremongering, it is fact.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Carol Monaghan: We have discussed the Irish border an awful lot this week. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that one obvious solution to the Irish border situation is for the whole UK to remain in the single market and customs union?

Dark Sky Status (Cornwall) (29 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma, and to speak in this debate. I congratulate the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) on securing it. It is a debate in which we can enjoy each other’s company for an hour. We are probably all going to say broadly similar things. The hon. Lady talked about going out stargazing in her childhood, and the wonder and...

Migration Policy and the Economy — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (29 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: What we have seen in Glasgow is not a drop in the number of international students, but a change in the demographics. Whereas in the past we had students from India, the States, Australia and New Zealand, now the majority of our students come from China. They come and study, and are welcome—we love having them—but they leave immediately after finishing their course. We want them...

Migration Policy and the Economy — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (29 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: I am hugely concerned about the unaccompanied children now in the camps. Does the hon. Lady share my concern that those children, living in the dreadful conditions that we have heard about today, are ripe for exploitation by people traffickers? We need to be in there, ensuring that that is not happening.

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: I pay tribute to the women of Glasgow who worked in the munitions factory. At the start of world war one, about 15,000 women were reckoned to work there; by the end, over 65,000 women were working there and playing a vital role in supporting the Army as they went forward. I place on record my tribute to those women of Glasgow.

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Will the Minister give way?

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the Minister for giving way. He mentioned who should pay the fees and shoulder the responsibility for that. If we ask taxpayers, “Do you want to fund this particular student £9,000 a year to go to university?” probably their answer would be no, but if we were to say, “Do you want to have teachers in our schools, nurses and doctors in our health service and...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: If the Minister is suggesting that the private benefits would be an increased salary, part of the increased salary would be an increased tax, so people would be contributing via their salary.

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: As I explained in my speech, much of the data on student movement is not captured by UCAS figures and is therefore not captured by the Sutton Trust’s report, so it is simply not a true reflection of the picture in Scotland.

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: It is good to be speaking in a tuition fees debate once again, and I thank the hon. Member for Hartlepool (Mike Hill) for kicking off this afternoon. The Government enjoy using the phrase “make work pay”, but today I will start by saying that we need to make education pay. For many young people who face the choice between crippling student debt or taking a low-paid, unskilled...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman has read some figures but not fully understood them. We have college places aplenty in Scotland; we have college places that cannot be filled. There are now 116,000 full-time college places in Scotland, which is more than ever before. In a Times Higher Education article last year, Professor Danny Dorling of Oxford University wrote: “In contrast to England,...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Of course the review is taking place. Despite the positive picture, and it is a positive picture, we do not stop there. We will keep going and keep going, until we can ensure that every young person, regardless of background, can go to university or can see university as something they would like to do. The Scottish Government are doing other things, too. In Glasgow, they run a project called...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: I am happy to talk about PISA and Scottish education. It is amazing that throughout the world Scottish education is lauded as a shining example; it is only here that it is not. We come here and we hear about how awful Scottish education is, but Scottish education is ranked extremely highly. As for the PISA tests, they look at pure knowledge—rote learning. They ask pupils to recall...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. We place a huge value on vocational training as well and I invite him to join me at City of Glasgow College, where people are looking not only at degree-level courses but at vocational courses. Nobody there considers those students taking vocational courses to be subsidising anyone else. City of Glasgow College is a fabulous new facility...
