Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: UK Visas and Immigration (16 Jul 2018)

What is the Department doing to improve the recruitment and retention of staff to make sure that, while targets are met, the quality of decision making is still ensured?

David Linden: Will the Minister give way?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

David Linden: In a week when chaos reigns in this Government, it seems only fitting that we talk about the policy most in chaos—universal credit. I must say to the Secretary of State that if one of my constituents went into Shettleston jobcentre and lied to their work coach, they would find that they had been sanctioned and the Government would then come down on them like a ton of bricks. The hon....

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: I am grateful to my hon. Friend—he is truly a friend. He speaks about the importance of listening to business. Last week the Financial Times carried a report suggesting there were fears about food rotting in ports as a result of the Government pursuing a no-deal Brexit. The hon. Member for Strangford and the small group of 10 MPs that he is in have considerable power with the UK...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. I beg to move that the Legislative Grand Committee do sit in private.

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: Further to that point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Can you clarify that the reason that I cannot move that motion is because I am a Scottish MP and have been rendered a second-class Member of the House as a result of English votes for English laws?

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: It is a great honour to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Lindsay, and, indeed, it is a pleasure to serve on this esteemed Legislative Grand Committee of England and Wales. I look forward to making a few observations on the Bill, which has been certified by Mr Speaker as competent for EVEL. It is of course a real pity that, should the Bill divide the Legislative Grand Committee, I and my...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that powerful intervention. Perhaps today we might find that Members from English constituencies will rise to speak, but I would not necessarily hold my breath for that. When I first looked at the Order Paper last week and saw that we were debating the Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill, I excitedly and somewhat naively thought that this was about...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: I do not want my hon. Friend to think that I am coming to the end of my remarks too early. I am only a third of the way through. He is right to pay tribute to the organisations in his constituency, and while I have the floor, I pay tribute to Eddie Andrews of Connect Community Trust in the Wellhouse area of my constituency, who does a sterling job of looking after that allotment. There is a...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: I am grateful for your guidance, Sir Lindsay. That is much appreciated. I am conscious that scores of MPs from English constituencies will wish to take part in this important Legislative Grand Committee. Members fought for it for a long time; it was the English Parliament. I expect to see hundreds of MPs rush into the Chamber to stand to their feet and make their voice heard. There is still...

Points of Order (5 Jul 2018)

David Linden: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. On that very theme, this is a picture of my daughter who will be born in the autumn, so I am particularly keen to see this measure put in place as soon as possible. On a serious point, where is the Leader of the House? The Government have just unilaterally changed the business of the House this afternoon. I am the acting Whip for the Scottish...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

David Linden: May we have a debate in Government time about how long it takes Ministers to respond to letters? I wrote to the Home Office about my Easterhouse constituent, Mr Kasharfeh, eight months ago, and I have only just had a holding reply. Does the Leader of the House think that is really good enough?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (5 Jul 2018)

David Linden: Today’s carries a warning from the British Retail Consortium about the fear of food rotting at ports as a result of a no-deal Brexit. What is the Secretary of State doing about that, and how he will ensure that our ports are not left in chaos?
