[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — FCO: Human Rights Work (14 Mar 2013)

John Stanley: I am pleased to follow the present Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon South (Richard Ottaway), and his predecessor, the hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes). I very much endorse the comments of my hon. Friend, when he said that the Government would do well to acknowledge that there is an inherent conflict between the Government pursuing...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — FCO: Human Rights Work (14 Mar 2013)

John Stanley: I agree with my friend that that is an opportunity, but to be wholly frank and honest, I have grave doubts about whether it will be seized, because I fear that since the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin, there simply has not been a majority in the Knesset that is really willing to embrace the concept of creating a separate, independent, viable Palestinian state. In recent years, we have...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — FCO: Human Rights Work (14 Mar 2013)

John Stanley: The hon. Gentleman is correct. In some countries to which he refers, national law conspicuously contradicts the Commonwealth charter that has just been announced. I am glad to say that we now seem to have had a significant breakthrough as far as Commonwealth countries are concerned. In the text of the Commonwealth charter, which the Foreign Secretary has just laid before the House as a...

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (13 Dec 2012)

John Stanley: I am grateful to you, Mrs Riordan, for allowing me to speak a second time and give a brief conclusion. I am grateful also to all the right hon. and hon. Members who have taken part in this significant and well-informed debate. The hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes) made a first-rate contribution, with the wealth of experience and expertise that he brings to bear. He referred to my...

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (13 Dec 2012)

John Stanley: May I go back to what the Minister said earlier when listing, country by country, the numbers of arms export licence revocations following the Arab spring—or whatever we choose to call it? Does he not agree that the number of arms export licence revocations for Saudi Arabia stands at precisely zero, albeit that at the time of the Arab spring Saudi armed forces crossed the causeway into...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Arms Exports (13 Dec 2012)

John Stanley: I warmly congratulate my constituency neighbour and right hon. Friend the Member for Sevenoaks (Michael Fallon) on his deserved return to the ministerial firmament, and I extend to him my best wishes for his time in his important post. I would be the first to acknowledge that quantity and size is no indication of quality, whether that applies to speeches in the House or Select Committee...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Arms Exports (13 Dec 2012)

John Stanley: The hon. Gentleman makes a wholly correct point. I said in my remarks that that exhibition was not the first time, and he is entirely right to reinforce the point. We continue to be in disagreement with the Government on whether there is an inherent conflict between strongly promoting arms exports to an authoritarian regime while criticising their human rights performance and abuses. To the...

Does the Minister not agree that under primary legislation, the Secretary of State ultimately has a responsibility for addressing issues of NHS trusts’ compliance with statute?

Tonbridge Hospital/Edenbridge Hospital (16 Oct 2012)

John Stanley: Before the Minister concludes, will she respond to my request that before Ministers take a final decision on whether individual hospital properties go to NHS providers or NHS Property Services Ltd, they consult on the proposed final destination of the properties, so that local people have an opportunity to express a view?

Tonbridge Hospital/Edenbridge Hospital (16 Oct 2012)

John Stanley: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mrs Osborne. My constituents are most fortunate in that they have within my constituency geographical boundary not one community hospital, but two. We have the Edenbridge and District War Memorial hospital, and Tonbridge Cottage hospital. Both were founded between the two world wars with the outpouring of philanthropic and generous donations in...
