Devolved Powers in Scotland (17 Oct 2017)

David Linden: I am very grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way and for giving us the opportunity to talk a bit about why the Scottish National party Government are still polling very highly and why the Tories have moved back into third place in Scotland. However, on the subject of fixed odds betting terminals, I represent a constituency that is littered with betting shops, as a result of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

David Linden: What recent discussions he has had with representatives from other UN Security Council member states on the protection of civilians in Libya.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

David Linden: The Foreign Secretary has been widely deplored for stating that Sirte could be the new Dubai if “they…clear the dead bodies away.” This is just the latest gaffe from the Foreign Secretary. Will he do the right thing and apologise, or will he resign?

Clean Growth Strategy: UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (12 Oct 2017)

David Linden: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this very important debate. I know that she is an assiduous constituency MP. Like me, has she found that a number of her constituents who had a lifetime award for disability living allowance, but are now transitioned to PIP, have been, following an assessment, suddenly found fit for work?

Iran: Human Rights — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

David Linden: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Ms Buck. I thank the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) for securing this important debate. A number of hon. Members have spoken on this topic before; having been newly elected to the House in June, I appreciate this first opportunity to do so myself. Before I speak about the more specific issues, I want to mention the use of...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)

David Linden: Given that the DUP is not present in the Chamber to hold the Government to account, may I ask whether the Government Chief Whip approached DUP Members in advance of the Opposition day debates to try to get them to change their mind—yes or no?

Race Disparity Audit (10 Oct 2017)

David Linden: I thank the First Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. None of this comes as a surprise to any of us. A lot of work has been done over the years, including by the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy). Although we would welcome any new, user-friendly website, it really should not have been the centrepiece of today’s statement. I very much hope that the Government...

Aggressive Antisocial Behaviour — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

David Linden: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I commend the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe) for securing this debate. I am pleased to see him in the Chamber leading on this issue after the incident that happened to him this summer; I am sure that all colleagues wish him well. The debate so far has been good. We have heard contributions from the hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2017)

David Linden: The palliative care we provide to terminally ill children is an incredibly serious topic. I want to refer to the point made by the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) and to press the Minister on giving children’s care parity of funding with adult care. Will she follow the example of the Scottish Government and provide parity of funding?

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

David Linden: It is a pleasure to speak from the Front Bench. I did not expect to do so, but my hon. Friend the Member for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley) has been injured. I am sure I speak on behalf of the whole House when I wish her well and a safe return to this place. I am very grateful for the opportunity to take part in the debate. I would like to outline a bit of context and history,...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

David Linden: If the hon. Gentleman wants to intervene, I am more than happy to allow him to put his apology on the record in the House.

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

David Linden: I am disappointed that the hon. Gentleman is seeking to reopen this issue. [Interruption.] Will the House calm down for a minute? His apology on Radio Scotland was welcome, but he is on the record as saying before that they are a blight on local communities, which is deeply regrettable. I am glad that he has apologised.

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

David Linden: I am sad that the debate has descended to this level. If the hon. Gentleman is not happy, I am sure his constituents will be more than happy to Google it. It is important that we as legislators moderate our language. Some Conservative Members would do well to do that. Gypsy Travellers have suffered enough discrimination, so it is important that we come together, understand our differences and...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

David Linden: Is not the major issue the fact that the Government’s Brexit agenda is being driven by the Foreign Secretary on the pages of the Daily Telegraph—that is, when he is not moonlighting as Bernard Manning? Will the Prime Minister listen to the Scottish Government and not sacrifice 80,000 jobs on the altar of internal party politics by leaving the single market?

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women: Scotland-Malawi Relationship (13 Sep 2017)

David Linden: I thank the Minister for his remarks. We have discussed the double taxation treaty and the issue of the deadline—I should clarify that the deadline was set by the UK Government. I am grateful to hon. Members for turning out in such numbers for the debate. It has highlighted that there is a real appetite to foster and develop this relationship on a cross-party basis in Scotland. I hope...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women: Scotland-Malawi Relationship (13 Sep 2017)

David Linden: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Scotland-Malawi relationship. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Chope, having spent the afternoon with you in the Procedure Committee. I am pleased to have secured today’s debate, and am very grateful to be able to give the House a chance to discuss and celebrate our very important and successful bilateral...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women: Scotland-Malawi Relationship (13 Sep 2017)

David Linden: I wholeheartedly join my hon. Friend in commending those wonderful local organisations. We have seen the generous, welcoming spirit of Argyll and Bute in its international work in recent years. I am more than happy to put that on the record. In my constituency, Carmyle Primary School, St Joachim’s Catholic Primary School, Croftcroighn School, Swinton Primary School, Eastbank Academy and...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women: Scotland-Malawi Relationship (13 Sep 2017)

David Linden: The point is that we need to get on with getting this sorted. The Government have been quite clear about setting a timeframe, but I can see from my constituency caseload that they are perhaps too focused on other matters at the moment. I would like Ministers in the Treasury to honour their promise to get this sorted. As I said, I do not think it is unreasonable for the Government to let us...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

David Linden: I caution my hon. Friend not to take lectures from the Government on democracy. I remind him that he won his election and that his opponent has been stuffed into the House of Lords, so he should take no lectures from the Conservative party.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: Bereavement Leave: Loss of a Child (12 Sep 2017)

David Linden: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton)—I deliberately say my hon. Friend, knowing that his vote in Newton Mearns will probably go down as a result of being friends with the Scottish Nationalists—on securing the debate. It is a pleasure to serve with him on the APPG for children...
