Space Policy (18 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: Indeed I am, Mr Speaker. I welcome the announcement that the spaceport will be in my constituency. [Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] I am gratified that so many Members have come into the Chamber to hear me ask this question. [Laughter.] On behalf of my constituents, I thank the UK Government for making this decision. Jobs do not exactly grow on trees in my constituency, and this will...

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I congratulate the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell) on securing this debate. I am here as a bit of a fraud, really, because I am not an expert on the Council of Europe, although I am particularly interested in this subject. I am a history graduate and when I was a Member of the Scottish Parliament, I chaired the cross-party...

Combat Air Strategy (17 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: It would be churlish and mean-spirited not to acknowledge that there is much that is very good in the Secretary of State’s statement. However, does he agree that a no-deal Brexit would hamper his well-intentioned idea of working with European partners?

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: The splendid formations of Typhoons and Tornadoes flying over London last week surely exemplify the fruits of previous co-operation with European countries. The Prime Minister used the interesting phrase, “where it is right to do so in the future”. Does that mean that it is conceivable that there might not be such co-operation in future?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (16 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: The law governing what type of knife people can buy across the counter in Scotland is different from the law in England, yet a knife can kill regardless of whether it is English or Scottish. What discussions has the Home Secretary had with the Scottish Government with a view to bringing these laws more into line?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: Notwithstanding what has just been said, surely the Minister will accept that whenever we buy a Royal Navy warship, an auxiliary ship, an aircraft or whatever abroad, we never own all the intellectual property associated with that product. We are buying F-35s, which are splendid aircraft, but we will never know the fine details of the box of tricks that makes them work, and that is a...

Afghanistan (11 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: May I remind hon. Members that one of my children is serving in the armed forces? As the Secretary of State said, we will have 1,100 service personnel deployed in Afghanistan, some of whom will face lengthy deployments lasting months or perhaps even longer. By definition, that is stressful for them and their families. Will he therefore assure me that there will be a leave rota in place that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Telecommunications: Rural Areas (11 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: What discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on improving telecommunications in rural Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Telecommunications: Rural Areas (11 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: The Secretary of State will be aware that mobile reception in my constituency is variable, to say the very least. The Home Office has given a company called EE a large amount of money to install infrastructure. Will the Secretary of State help other providers to access this infrastructure?

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: A constituent of mine, Mr William Calder, has a fish processing business in Scrabster. If what happens in the future leads to the addition of half a day to his two-day delivery journey to France, he will be in serious trouble. We need to avoid anything like that happening at a border, whether it is at Dover or Calais.

Leaving the Eu: Negotiations (10 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: If I interpret correctly what the Minister has just said, I rather fancy that she is making a false correlation between those of us who are perceived as Unionists and support for Brexit. I very luckily won my seat just over a year ago as a self-proclaimed remainer—there was a swing to the Liberal Democrats. I suggest to the Minister, with all due respect, that that was more about a...

Amesbury Update (9 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: May I associate myself and my party with what has been said about the tragic death of Dawn Sturgess? It was needless, it was undeserved, and, to be honest, it seems chillingly sinister that a death like that can happen in our country in this day and age. I accept the argument that the Russian state was probably associated with the attack earlier in the year. The Home Secretary is correct to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Daesh: Syria and Iraq (9 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: As we train up personnel in Iraq, can I assume that the Secretary of State will ensure that the knowledge gained and the contacts made will be banked for the future for our own defence purposes, not least intelligence?

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: I have enjoyed the debate this evening very much indeed, particularly the scholarly dissertation given by the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes). The subject tonight is the claim of right for Scotland, and let me put it on record right away that I stand full square with the claim of right. I may be many things, and they say that pride is one of the seven deadly...

Counter-Daesh Update (3 Jul 2018)

Jamie Stone: I think that the previous question got to the heart of something that is of great interest to this House. First, will the Secretary of State reassure me that the intelligence contacts that have been made with Iraqi intelligence will be developed and built on? I am sure that he will agree to that. Secondly, will he perhaps go a little further and outline how the experience of counteracting the...

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Jamie Stone: rose—

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Jamie Stone: I would not want the hon. Gentleman to misunderstand me. I do not decry the efforts being made by Highlands and Islands Enterprise. However, anyone who thinks that despite its best efforts it is more than a poor shadow of what went before, in the Highlands and Islands Development Board, is in dreamland. Surely hon. Members agree with me about that.

Scottish Economy — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Jamie Stone: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I congratulate the hon. Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Ged Killen) on securing this important debate. What I am about to say might be slightly more boring than previous contributions to this debate.
