Iran — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] ( 7 Jun 2023)

Chris Law: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts, and I thank the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (Brendan Clarke-Smith) for securing this debate today. His contribution to it was eloquent, insightful and detailed, which I appreciated. The UK and Iran have had a long, complex and often difficult relationship, stretching back over several centuries, let alone decades. As the 17th largest...

Chris Law: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions ( 7 Jun 2023)

Chris Law: Members on these Benches would like to share our sympathies as well. It is simply not good enough for the UK Government to absolve themselves of responsibility for the abhorrent practice of forced adoption, which affected hundreds of thousands of families from the 1940s to the 1970s. Rather than apologise on behalf of society, will the Minister finally find a backbone, acknowledge that the...

Business of the House (18 May 2023)

Chris Law: Why is it that Westminster is always the last to the table to accept state responsibility for the most vulnerable members of society? Between 1949 and 1976, an estimated quarter of a million children across these islands were taken from their mothers and fathers and forcibly adopted. I stand here as possibly one of those children. Despite the Scottish and Welsh Governments issuing a formal...

Human Rights Protections: Palestinians (20 Apr 2023)

Chris Law: I thank my constituents, the people of Scotland, the people of the UK and the people across the world who have written to me about this very important debate, to inform and educate me. I thank everyone in the Chamber, as they have been not only passionate but deeply evidenced and very clear about what needs to change. We have had so many debates on Palestine over the years, and things are...

Human Rights Protections: Palestinians (20 Apr 2023)

Chris Law: I beg to move, That this House has considered the matter of human rights protections for Palestinians. Since the start of this year, the security situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories has deteriorated rapidly. Israelis have been killed outside a synagogue in East Jerusalem. During Ramadan, Palestinians have been beaten by police while worshipping in al-Aqsa mosque....

Human Rights Protections: Palestinians (20 Apr 2023)

Chris Law: That is a very valid and good question, but right now I am particularly focused on the occupied territories, which of course are under the command of Israel. That is why I am pertinently directing my points to that today. In February 2022, Amnesty International published a report concluding for the first time that Israel is committing the crime of apartheid against Palestinians. Under...

International Trade and Geopolitics (20 Apr 2023)

Chris Law: I am listening to the hon. Gentleman’s speech with deep interest.

Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 2023)

Chris Law: This week, not only has my city of Dundee announced that its flights will connect with Heathrow but the Scottish Government have committed to Dundee being at the forefront of making Scotland a major world economy, bringing investment, jobs and opportunity. However, the UK Government seem to have a problem with this. Scotland’s international engagement is to be reduced. Despite being paid...

Scotland: Devolution Settlement (29 Mar 2023)

Barr, called for it to go ahead as planned....
