Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Leo Docherty: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. I am grateful to my hon.

Generations of Aldershot soldiers served in the Province and still live in and around the Aldershot area and in the borough of...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Leo Docherty: Does my hon. Friend believe, as I do, that if a statute of limitations is introduced, it should cover all theatres, so that veterans who have served honourably in Iraq and Afghanistan—even those who have faced disciplinary action but been cleared of any charge or wrongdoing—can get on with their lives? Also, does he know anything about the case of Major Robert Campbell, which is an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 May 2018)

Leo Docherty: My constituency of Aldershot is the home of the British Army and it has a very fine tradition of military service. I am delighted that the commander of the Aldershot garrison, Colonel Mac MacGregor, and his wife Deborah have joined us in the Gallery today. Next month, Colonel Mac will leave the Army after nearly 40 years’ service, so will the Prime Minister join me in thanking Colonel Mac...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Leo Docherty: I am very pleased to speak in this debate and to follow the hon. Member for Reading East (Matt Rodda). It has been very obvious today and in previous debates that there is justifiable anger over this issue. I think it is partly motivated by the fact that the contribution of the Windrush generation to building our society and economy in the post-war years has not been sufficiently recognised,...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Leo Docherty: I am grateful for my right hon. Friend’s intervention, and I hope that, prior to the conclusion of my speech, another Member will intervene to give us that name. Of course, it was not such a positive experience for every member of the Caribbean community who served in the British Army. Allan Wilmot, who also came from Jamaica, volunteered to join the Royal Navy in 1941 and served throughout...

Leo Docherty: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for the calm tone he has struck in initiating the debate. Given the previous intervention, does he agree that it is important to remember that a Labour Government first coined the term “hostile environment”? [Interruption.]

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Leo Docherty: My hon. Friend is laying out in useful terms the series of actions that the Government are taking. Does he feel, as I do, that the leadership provided by the new Home Secretary this morning will prove decisive? I have just come from the Chamber, where he said he will do whatever it takes to deal with the matter in a timely and decisive fashion. Does my hon. Friend share the confidence I have...

We must bear in mind that the digital industries make up 4% of all employment and 7% of economic...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Leo Docherty: The right hon. Gentleman mentions a vote; had there been a vote in this place last week to protect innocent civilians in Syria, how would he have voted?

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Leo Docherty: I am very grateful for the Prime Minister’s robust action over the weekend. Given that this action has been legal, precise and timely, would she agree that those who seek to play politics around this issue by raising spurious legal questions do a great disservice to their office and a grave disservice to the innocent civilians in Syria who have faced the horror of chemical attack?
