Covid-19: Disparate Impact (22 Oct 2020)

Steven Bonnar: With data showing that only one in 10 lower earners can work from home and that 69% of low earners are women, women have clearly started this crisis from a position of economic disadvantage. In many areas they have led the fight against coronavirus, but millions of women are stuck in low-paid and insecure jobs. Why, then, according to Business in the Community, have the Government chosen to...

Transport: Transport Sector: Support and Covid-19 Emergency Funding (22 Oct 2020)

Steven Bonnar: What (a) financial and (b) other support he plans to provide to the transport sector in the next six months.

Transport: Transport Sector: Support and Covid-19 Emergency Funding (22 Oct 2020)

Steven Bonnar: If there is, as many predict, a disruptive end to the transition period, with long delays and blockages at the EU border and the inevitable financial costs this will bring to hauliers and traders, will the UK Government financially support and compensate these businesses and workers for the costs inflicted on them by this Tory Government’s failure to secure anything bearing any semblance of...

Covid-19 Update (19 Oct 2020)

Steven Bonnar: Given that the national minimum wage already falls far below the real living wage, does the Minister think that people will be able to survive this winter with their workplaces closed and receiving only two thirds of that amount? Will the Government not give consideration to the calls from the Scottish Government and English regional leaders to do the right thing and offer more assistance?

Covid-19 Update and Hospitality Curfew (1 Oct 2020)

Steven Bonnar: May I ask the Secretary of State to what extent he thinks Dominic Cummings’s clear disregard of the rules during lockdown has undermined people’s compliance with the current guidance, placing excess pressure on police as well as on staff in the hospitality sector? Does he agree that many of those on the frontline in the fight against covid are now paying a heavy price for Cummings’s actions?

Business of the House (24 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: I listened intently to the right hon. Gentleman’s earlier response to the right hon. Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz) . However, I wish to draw his attention to other matters relating to the Child Maintenance Service: failures to provide statements in order that parents can carry out a full reconciliation of their own accounts to try to locate other discrepancies, such as the...

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (17 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: One of the main issues facing the effectiveness of any inquiry will be the difference in approach across the four nations and whether evidence presented has been evidence-based or politically driven. Does the hon. Member therefore agree that the devolved Governments should be afforded access to evidence-based decision making by the UK Government that has had a direct impact on the devolved...

Japan Free Trade Agreement (14 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: How long will it be until the UK Government realise that this Japan deal is not as good as is being touted, and then U-turn and renege on it? Should my constituents take the Secretary of State’s word that they will not do so?

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 - National Landing Requirement (10 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: I wish to press the amendment to a vote.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 - National Landing Requirement (10 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: I beg to move amendment 87, in clause 18, page 13, line 34, leave out “Secretary of State” and insert “fisheries policy authorities”. This amendment would ensure that regulations establishing a national landing requirement for the devolved nations are made by the devolved administrations rather than by the Secretary of State.

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 - National Landing Requirement (10 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: We in the SNP are concerned about Government amendment 5, which would possibly remove clause 18 from the Bill in its entirety. We oppose that in the strongest terms, and I encourage right hon. and hon. Members to do likewise. If they respect the sentiments of devolution, they will support the amendments we have tabled, which we do intend to put to a vote. A landings target is currently the...

Birmingham Attacks and Extinction Rebellion Protests (7 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: Last year, this House agreed with, among others, Extinction Rebellion that we are now living in a climate emergency. Does the Minister accept that this Government have failed the many, many peaceful protesters and campaigners with their inaction and lack of ambition? Does he also accept that if he wants to enact real change, he should look to adopt the expertise and policies of the world’s...

Fisheries Bill [Lords] (1 Sep 2020)

Steven Bonnar: I am thankful for the opportunity to speak in this debate on an issue that is vital to many of my constituents. This is a Bill born of Brexit, and I, like many, am deeply concerned about Brexit. Even the best deal, which is largely unachievable by this Government, is still a bad deal. To be clear, there is no good deal on the horizon, and I have to tell anyone who thinks they can see one that...

Covid-19 (12 May 2020)

Steven Bonnar: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for the opportunity to take part in this general debate on covid-19 and to be a voice for the people of Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill in these unprecedented times. This pandemic has presented completely new challenges for us all, demanding responses that have no precedent, but this is by no means an excuse for the response of this UK Government. This is...

Social Security (5 May 2020)

Steven Bonnar: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute today on a matter that affects many charities, small companies and amateur clubs across my constituency and across Scotland. I place on record that I fully embrace these virtual proceedings, allowing us to look after the interests of our constituencies. The credit of course goes to the staff and officials behind the scenes who are pulling this...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: *No heading* (5 May 2020)

Steven Bonnar: What steps he is taking to help prevent a second wave of covid-19 infections after the easing of lockdown measures.

Caging of Farm Animals — Geraint Davies in the Chair (16 Mar 2020)

Steven Bonnar: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I was very keen to take part in this debate because it is in response to a public petition. As a result, we are partaking in democracy in action and I was very keen to come along to contribute. I am also delighted to take part to ensure that I represent the many constituents of mine in Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill who signed...

Health and Social Care: New Hospital Projects (10 Mar 2020)

Steven Bonnar: During the election campaign, the Prime Minister promised 40 new hospitals, but the Government have only pledged funding for six: £2.7 billion. After more than five years of raiding capital budgets, when will the Government provide the £6.5 billion that is required to fix the maintenance backlog alone?

European Union: Future Relationship (27 Feb 2020)

Steven Bonnar: Scotland cast its biggest ever vote on a proposition when it voted by 62% to remain in the EU. More people in Scotland voted to remain in the EU than voted to remain in the United Kingdom—and that was using the UK Government’s franchise; had the Government trusted 16 and 17-year-olds in the way we trust them in Scotland, a bigger proportion of voters would have voted to remain in the EU....
