Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Effect on Scotland (25 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: East Renfrewshire has a vibrant business community, but only 75 of its businesses have more than 20 employees, and by far their most important market is the rest of the UK. What reassurances can my right hon. Friend give them that as the UK leaves the EU they will have seamless access to the rest of the UK?

Surgical Mesh (19 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: I congratulate the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Emma Hardy) on securing this debate. Although we went in front of the Backbench Business Committee together, the truth is that she did most of the work. I am hugely grateful for what she has done in this space. Having set herself a very high bar with the way in which she opened the Westminster Hall debate in October, I...

Surgical Mesh (19 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: I certainly agree that a UK-wide database will be far more effective and beneficial in providing a true representation of the story of the mesh-injured women, but the hon. Lady must accept that the women in Scotland have found the response of the Scottish Government—and, in particular, that of the current Cabinet Secretary—fairly poor. A lot has happened in the past six months,...

Leaving the Eu: Scotland and Wales Continuity Bills (18 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: I find astonishing the level of contempt in which the SNP holds the office of the Presiding Officer—an individual whose role is to uphold the institution of the Scottish Parliament. Does the Attorney General agree that far from undermining devolution, ensuring that no Scottish Government act outwith the scope of their powers is protecting and preserving devolution?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: East Renfrewshire is privileged to have the largest Jewish community in Scotland, and I take seriously my role as its representative to defend, support and champion that community. I am honoured to have recently been appointed co-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on British Jews, working alongside my friend the hon. Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting) and many others. The Jewish...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: Yes, I absolutely agree. We can show a real commitment to that on a cross-party basis, both through the work we do with each other and in the Scottish Parliament. I wanted today to talk about real people, British Jews, walking on the streets of East Renfrewshire, because anti-Semitism is not just about the tweet, the picture on Facebook or the mural on the side of the London building; it is...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Television: Scotland (3 Apr 2018)

Paul Masterton: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps his Department is taking to reduce the level of fees for unauthorised overdraft fees.

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

Paul Masterton: The disgraceful chemical attack in Salisbury—which I believe is a slightly longer train ride from East Renfrewshire than from Taunton Deane—is a particularly shocking example of the Russian Government’s habit of acting without respect for national borders or international rules and norms. Russia has acted in this way for a long time, growing bolder, escalating, and...

Written Answers — Treasury: Cash Dispensing: Fees and Charges (20 Mar 2018)

Paul Masterton: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what discussions his Department has had with consumer groups on the effect on consumers of LINK's proposals to reduce the interchange fee.

Written Answers — Treasury: Cash Dispensing: Fees and Charges (20 Mar 2018)

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Paul Masterton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans. I will not go back over what Orkambi is or what it does, but it is important to remember that we are talking about only the second precision medicine for cystic fibrosis to be licensed in the United Kingdom. It has rightly been licensed for use with people over the age of 12 who have this specific form of cystic fibrosis, and both...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Paul Masterton: My hon. Friend powerfully sums up why Vertex, the SMC, NHS Scotland, NHS England and NICE need to work together to find a way to make Orkambi available on the NHS as soon as possible, not just in Scotland but right across the United Kingdom. I understand that confidential talks are ongoing and I very much hope that there will be a positive conclusion; there is no reason to assume that an...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Paul Masterton: I suspect that the Minister has listened carefully to that intervention. I, too, will be interested to hear his response. I finish by extending my hope that we are able to get the drug licensed for more children—the current license is for those aged 12 and over. In January, the European Commission extended the marketing authorisation for Orkambi to include children aged between six and...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2018)

Paul Masterton: If we leave the single market, we will also leave the passporting regime, as the Prime Minister has made clear. What steps is the Department taking to negotiate successor arrangements for UK financial services firms that access EU markets?

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

Paul Masterton: The Opposition amendments to the Scottish Government’s Bill significantly water down the massive power grab attempt by Scottish Ministers in relation to continuing alignment with the EU, which I think the Scottish Government want for five years, then five years, then five years. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that those amendments to the Bill are a welcome defeat of the Scottish Government?

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

Paul Masterton: Will the hon. Lady tell us how much influence the Welsh Government currently have in the setting of those frameworks within the EU and whether the EU obtains the consent of the Welsh Government when setting them?
