Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: I thank you, Mr Speaker, and all those Members who have remained at this late hour. In a way, my contribution tonight feels not unlike my maiden speech, because it is necessary to frame what I will say with a kind of tour d’horizon, because as Members will understand, the horizons in my constituency are massive. It is the second biggest in the UK—it is truly huge. The sheer...

Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: My hon. Friend makes an extremely good point. She holidays in Portmahomack and will know, as well as I do, that in winter weather, some of these roads can be absolutely impassable. I want to read from an email that I was sent by a constituent of mine called Fiona who lives in Durness in north-west Sutherland. She wrote: “I currently have an 83 year old neighbour who has had a stroke,...

Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: That is absolutely correct. The hon. Gentleman and I have to be careful about straying into devolved areas, but the fact is that the NHS changes that are happening in our constituencies impact on people. We can say it is devolved, but nevertheless, the two of us represent our constituents and are bound to take up their issues, and, as best we can within the rules of devolution, air them in...

Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: The hon. Gentleman makes a sage point, which I will come to shortly. The issue is the taxation regime—it is a UK function, hence it being the peg on which I hang my hat—that applies to these drivers. I shall describe the problem. In 2011, the then Chancellor, George Osborne, set thresholds and payments for volunteer drivers that would not incur additional taxation over and above...

Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, which was thoughtful and to the point. Ultimately, however, whether the matter is devolved or reserved, I am left with the problem of trying to help people whom I know and love to reach hospitals and medical centres so that they can be given the treatment that they need.

Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: That point is incredibly well made. The hypothetical Mrs Mackay who goes to Moray or Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross will know the local people. She will know, when she picks up Mrs Mackenzie, that she may have forgotten to take her heart tablets with her. That is crucial. Local knowledge will also inform her if Mrs Mackenzie has been bereaved, or if there is some difficulty in her...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Social Mobility (23 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: When a young person leaves school, perhaps in a deprived area, and joins the armed forces and makes a success of that career, what encouragement is given to them to go back to that school and say, “I was at this school—I know where you smoke the fags behind the bike sheds—and you too can make a success of a career like mine”?

Surgical Mesh (19 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: I am delighted the hon. Lady has this debate. Does she agree that, as well as young women, lots of males are caught in this sorry and ghastly trap? I have personally heard some terrible tales from my constituency, although I will not go into them just now.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Sleeper Services: Scotland to England (19 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: What steps his Department is taking to support the provision of sleeper rail services between Scotland and England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Sleeper Services: Scotland to England (19 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: The northern sleeper service is good for the environment, stress-free, fun and actually rather romantic. Does the Minister agree that further development would do much to boost tourism in the highlands and in my constituency?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: I thank you for allowing me to intervene, Mr Speaker; I was late for this debate, for which I apologise. I cannot resist rising to that challenge. We heard the line of questioning from constituents about whether Parliament was going to be recalled—“Are you going to have a vote on it?” My answer that I did not know led to puzzlement and confusion. Does the hon. Gentleman...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: Thank you, Mr Speaker. One way to boost the UK’s productivity is to give disabled people employment opportunities. Can the Chancellor of the Exchequer tell me what discussions he has had with the Department for Work and Pensions and possibly the Scottish Government about maximising the potential of our disabled people?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: Online radicalisation and cyber-crime are no respecters of boundaries, yet policing in Scotland is devolved. Will the Minister assure me that there will be maximum co-operation and co-ordination between Police Scotland and the UK police forces to stamp out these terrible and terrifying crimes?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Scotland (6 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of the development of (a) Dounreay TrÍ, (b) Forthwind and (c) Kincardine offshore wind projects on the (i) the UK and (ii) Scottish economy.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Buildings (5 Apr 2018)

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Buildings (5 Apr 2018)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 26 February 2018 to Question 131729, on Ministry of Defence: Buildings, the location of the accommodation properties owned by his Department which were rented to non-military personnel between January 2016 and January 2017.

Infected Blood Inquiry (29 Mar 2018)

Jamie Stone: In light of the Minister’s helpful initial answer, will she and the Government reconsider the decision that, from April 2018, compensation payments will not be increased in line with inflation?
