Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Northern Ireland: Political Situation (8 Sep 2015)

Conor McGinn: The cornerstone of the political settlement reached in Northern Ireland was the three-stranded nature of the Good Friday agreement—relations within Northern Ireland, relations between the north and the south, and indeed east-west relations. Will the Secretary of State confirm that the Government are still committed to that approach and rule out taking any action to suspend the Assembly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Counter-ISIL Coalition Strategy (20 Jul 2015)

Conor McGinn: As my hon. Friend the Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) said, the serious issue here is the fact that the Government have given permission for UK armed forces personnel to be involved in air strikes in Syria, despite giving first the impression and then the assurance that they would come to the House before they did any such thing. The Secretary of State has not recognised that. How can the...

Business of the House (16 Jul 2015)

Conor McGinn: This weekend, I shall somewhat advisedly seek to double the number of Labour MPs in Scotland—albeit temporarily—by visiting Ayrshire to serve as best man for my friend Alan Gemmell, who is marrying his partner Damien Stirk.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Water Cannon (15 Jul 2015)

Conor McGinn: The Home Secretary has clearly considered this matter, and I respect her decision. All that I will say is that when the Police Service of Northern Ireland makes it clear that it requires water cannon for public order situations, it rightly receives the support of the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. But when police in England and Wales say that they require that capability in their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Iran: Nuclear Deal (15 Jul 2015)

Isil (13 Jul 2015)

Conor McGinn: It is good that the Government have invited the Leader of the Opposition and my hon.
