Defence (11 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the local populations near these installations are very proud of them and pleased to have them there? We should always remember that.

Defence (11 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: I rise as my party’s defence spokesman. It is important that I remind the House that my daughter is a serving officer in the armed forces. I share the trepidation of the hon. Member for North Wiltshire (James Gray) at having to speak after so many highly informed contributions. I wish to use my constituency as the basis of my first point. It is no stranger to the armed forces: very...

Defence (11 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: I thank the Minister for that very good reassurance. However, that does show an example of some of the more irresponsible reporting.

Defence (11 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: That is absolutely correct. My final point is that the importance of the armed forces’ confidence in our politicians cannot be overestimated. When that is eroded and they feel that we are not acting in their best interests, or indeed that we do not understand what they do, it is incredibly corrosive. That, in turn, will affect their capability to defend this country if, God forbid, that...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) on securing this debate. Before I go any further, I wish to declare an interest. My wife is disabled and I think I should put that on the record. Unfortunately, it is a sad fact that the incidence of multiple sclerosis—MS—becomes more...

Universal Credit: Private Rented Sector — [James Gray in the Chair] (9 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: I return to my vast and remote mode. One of the warnings that the hon. Gentleman and I and others put to the Government was that the sheer rurality, distance and sparsity of population would present a special challenge when trying to get private landlords to let property.

Universal Credit: Private Rented Sector — [James Gray in the Chair] (9 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. Normally, I would talk about the differences in my constituency—I might go on about it being vast, remote and so on—but my constituency faces absolutely the same issue as the rest of the UK. For example, I had a conversation with a private landlord just the other day who owns quite a lot of property. I suggested to him...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Border Force: Boats (8 Jan 2018)

Jamie Stone: Happy new year from my party, Mr Speaker. Given what the Minister just said about the role of the Royal Navy, is it not rather worrying when we read about all these Royal Navy warships being tied up at harbour and not at sea?

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: HMS Queen Elizabeth (28 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what estimate his Department has made of the total cost to repair the leak on HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: The hon. Gentleman should not lose hope. He is right and I absolutely endorse what he says. What we have seen in recent days and weeks has been extremely unpleasant, but three years ago north of the border—I think we can agree on this—it was very bad on both sides of the Scottish independence referendum debate. Since then, however, things have improved and we have worked at it....

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: I will be brief. I believe that one of the best uses of time in the future in this Parliament would be a thoughtful consideration of how the devolved Administrations and the UK Parliament can work best together to benefit constituents, particularly constituents in my vast and far-flung part of Scotland. I shall touch on three subjects this afternoon. I apologise to Members because they have...

Delivery Charges (Scotland) (20 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: rose—

Delivery Charges (Scotland) (20 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: I appreciate the Minister’s sincerity. Could she please add to the list she has just outlined the petition from Rebecca in John O’Groats? It is heartfelt, genuine and has masses of support, and a moral imperative behind it.

Delivery Charges (Scotland) (20 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: I congratulate the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) on securing this debate. Across my vast and very remote constituency—the remotest on the UK mainland, although it is part of the United Kingdom—my constituents face iniquitous delivery charges. It is a scandal. Rebecca from John O’Groats is quite right to establish that petition, and I support her all the way. As has...

Delivery Charges (Scotland) (20 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: I wholeheartedly endorse the hon. Lady’s comments. The argument for the interest of the remotest and most rural parts of Scotland is one on which we can unite, regardless of party political divisions. I look forward to working with her on this issue. I have only a short time left, so I will be brief. Governments on either side of the border have looked at this issue—even, in my...

Harassment in Public Life (18 Dec 2017)

Jamie Stone: On behalf of my party, I warmly—I repeat, warmly—welcome what the Home Secretary has said to us today. May I suggest that one way to help to tackle this problem would be to redouble our efforts in teaching about democracy, and teaching about debate and the courtesy of debate, in our schools the length and breadth of the United Kingdom?
