NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford) on securing this debate and on her compelling and powerful speech. I find myself agreeing wholeheartedly with what she had to say. It is a noteworthy event when Scottish Conservatives and Scottish National party Members agree unanimously, but it has happened twice...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Ongoing relative tariff differential (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: I join others in paying tribute to the work done by my right hon. Friend the Minister in leading the Bill through the House. I also pay tribute to the Opposition spokesman, the hon. Member for Southampton, Test (Dr Whitehead), and to my hon. Friend the Member for Weston-super-Mare (John Penrose). There has also been mention of the right hon. Member for Don Valley (Caroline Flint). I agree...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Ongoing relative tariff differential (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: I agree, and that is why it is important to discuss the real-time issues surrounding the SMETS2 meter and the future smart meter network, which is so important to the future of our energy market. In conclusion, at the heart of this issue is the need for lower energy prices, and helping consumers to understand how much energy they are using and how they can save money by changing supplier. I...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Ongoing relative tariff differential (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: Let me speak in relation to the amendment to the amendment. Amendment (a) says: “customers who appear to the Authority”— that is Ofgem— “to be vulnerable by reason of their financial or other circumstances are in need of protection.” How will the data be made available for anyone to be able to make that assessment, because, currently, there is a restriction...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the economic benefit of the city deals that have been agreed in Wales and Scotland is evidence of what is possible when the UK Government and the devolved Administrations pull together in the same direction?

Trade Bill: Convention about Parliament legislating on devolved matters (17 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: On a very quick point, is it not true that the working relationship between the UK Government and the Scottish Government is much more positive and much more healthy than we would be led to believe from listening to the rhetoric of the SNP Members in this place?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: The Stirling city region deal is the perfect opportunity for the industrial strategy to deliver for Scotland. Will Ministers meet me to discuss what resources could be diverted from Victoria Street to Stirling to support the industrial strategy’s execution?

Forced Adoption in the Uk: Carillion (12 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: My hon. Friend spoke earlier of contracts basically being awarded on price, rather than on any kind of value. Does he agree with the CBI’s response to the Carillion report that suppliers to the public sector need to “bid responsibly” for contracts and need to be “prepared to challenge” bad deals and to “walk away” from opportunities that will not...

Stephen Kerr: rose—

Forced Adoption in the Uk: Carillion (12 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: The hon. Lady is making a powerful case for what we found in the inquiry. As evidence of this house of cards that she is describing, which it undoubtedly was, Richard Adam, the former finance director, told the inquiry that not only did he sell all his shares when he left the business, but he would not be prepared to put his own money at risk by being a shareholder.

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: I wish to support what the hon. Gentleman has just said and add to it. The Royal Bank of Scotland and others who are party to the process of bank branch closures have underestimated the anger that those closures have caused in communities in my constituency and throughout Scotland. That anger towards the Royal Bank of Scotland is not going away. Real reputational and brand damage has been...

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Stephen Kerr: I think that the hon. Gentleman and I will find that we can agree on a number of things this afternoon, and for that reason alone, this debate is noteworthy. He mentions the short-term gain that the Royal Bank of Scotland feels that it is making through the branch closures, but the amounts of money involved are minuscule in the context of the bank’s operations, and the damage that the...
