Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sustainability of the Press Review: Local Press (18 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, with reference to the Cairncross Review, what steps her Department is taking to support local journalism.

Papers Relating to the Home Secretary (8 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: Is it not rather more fundamental than that? If a constituent comes to me with something important and I have to sort out the problem, it is crucial that that remains confidential. If I break that trust, I will be letting my constituent down, and also damaging democracy itself, because we must trust our politicians. Is not that really what is at stake here?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Cost of Living Payments (8 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many Universal Credit claimants on a non-monthly earning cycle missed out on each of the first and second Cost of Living Payment instalments due to receiving a nil Universal Credit award as a result of higher earnings than usual during the qualifying assessment period.

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Ukraine (8 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: Part and parcel of our support for Ukraine is how we look after Ukrainian refugees. I know of examples in the north of Scotland of their finding the bureaucracy involved in accessing universal credit very difficult. Although Work and Pensions is not his Department, does the Minister agree that a one-point telephone number and a dedicated team in that Department would help sort out this problem?

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Commemorative Plaques (7 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, whether she has made an assessment of the potential merits of (a) supporting the English Heritage Scheme to expand the Blue Plaque scheme outside of London and (b) including expansion of that scheme in the Government's levelling up agenda.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: I hate to disappoint the hon. Gentleman, but if he took a straw poll of the pregnant mothers in Caithness who now have to travel more than 100 miles to give birth in Inverness—this has happened on the SNP’s watch—he would get a pretty dusty answer.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: It is a well-known fact that the Scottish National party loves me to bits. However, I received my second covid vaccination from a British solider in Raigmore Hospital, where the British Army stepped in during the pandemic. The independence argument falls apart when it comes to the defence of the United Kingdom, because there is nothing that Vladimir Putin would like to see more than Scotland...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: I may be corrected, but I fancy I am the only person in this place who has worked in an oil fabrication yard; it was at Nigg. When I worked there, 5,000 people were employed—vital jobs in the highlands. We have the skills still, but they are ageing skills and the skills are going. If we miss the opportunity to build offshore floating wind structures in Scotland, we will be failing the...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: I was a Kishorn Commando.

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: A constituent of mine is a supermarket worker who is paid four-weekly. Because she receives one double salary payment, there is one month of the year in which she receives no universal credit. Normally that is not an issue, but because universal credit is linked to the cost of living payment, my constituent no longer qualifies for the £320 that could see her through the very worst of a cold,...

BBC Local Radio: Proposed Reduction in Provision (1 Nov 2022)

Jamie Stone: Can we just think about one example of how BBC local radio has impacted on all our everyday lives? During the pandemic the “Make a Difference: Give a Laptop” local radio campaign saw more than 116,000 laptops donated to schools and raised £1 million. I argue that that enabled children to carry on learning during one of the most disabling periods in our recent history. Is that not one...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Commemorative Plaques (28 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, whether she has had recent discussions with English Heritage on the potential merits of expanding the blue plaque scheme outside of London.

Baby Loss and Safe Staffing in Maternity Care — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (25 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I recognise that health is devolved to the Scottish Government but, with your permission, I will give a cautionary tale. Some years ago, we enjoyed a consultant-led maternity service based in Caithness General Hospital in Wick, but NHS Highland decided to downgrade it. The consequence is that pregnant mothers now have to travel 104...

Baby Loss and Safe Staffing in Maternity Care — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (25 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: Does the hon. Member agree with me that the principle that he correctly outlines should also apply to the nations of the United Kingdom, and that equality of service should apply right across Great Britain?

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: USA: Army (25 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will make an assessment the potential impact on British Army personnel of possible exposure to dangerous levels of contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina between 1953 and 1987.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Gaelic Broadcasting (20 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: There was a time when Gaelic was spoken in much of my far-flung constituency; that is not the case today. I regard Gaelic as not just a Scottish but a United Kingdom treasure. I respectfully suggest to the Minister that she might benefit from coming to the Gàidhealtachd, where Gaelic is spoken in the Western Isles, perhaps in parts of my constituency, to see what needs to be done to help it.

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: I have gone on again and again about green energy and hydrogen creation. Hydrogen is green and clean, and we must get serious about this. Does my hon. Friend agree it is vital that all Governments in the United Kingdom work together fast, and now?

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: I am sorry that there are no Scottish National party Members present, because it may interest the House that, when councils in Scotland make a planning decision—for instance, to refuse a wind farm application—it is quite frequently overturned by the Scottish Government. The rhetoric about local power can be hollow.

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Jamie Stone: The bit of the jigsaw that would be helpful to both the Scottish and UK Governments is floating offshore wind production. We have the skills in Scotland for all parts of fabrication, and we have some of the mightiest oil platforms ever built. Surely that is the way forward. Finally, to repeat my point, electricity generated out at sea could be taken in and lead to the generation of green hydrogen.
