Veterans Welfare Services (21 Nov 2023)

Owen Thompson: Simply rebranding Veterans UK seems like a superficial move. I am not clear how just changing the name recognises the deep problems that exist in that set-up. What assurances can the Minister give the House and the many veterans who contact me regularly that there will be a root-and-branch review to ensure that existing complaints are dealt with and that veterans receive the service they...

Justice: Violence against Women and Girls: Legislation (21 Nov 2023)

Owen Thompson: Whether he plans to take legislative steps to help end violence against women and girls.

Justice: Violence against Women and Girls: Legislation (21 Nov 2023)

Owen Thompson: I welcome the Minister to her place. We need to be doing much more to tackle the culture of toxic masculinity that, sadly, still exists. We recently had a situation in Midlothian where one of our councillors faced sexual harassment at a public event. When they complained and raised the issue, the perpetrator’s colleagues simply said, “But he’s a good guy.”. We need to do much more to...

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Owen Thompson: With a sense of camaraderie, I start by congratulating the hon. Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Michael Shanks) on his maiden speech. Maybe I can go further in extending the hand of friendship by helping him through the Aye Lobby this evening if he wishes to join us in voting for a ceasefire—as the Scottish Labour party in Holyrood appears to be saying it will do next week. I was...

Owen Thompson: What steps her Department is taking to tackle harmful AI-generated content on social media.

Science, Innovation and Technology: AI-generated Content: Social Media (15 Nov 2023)

Owen Thompson: Meta, having recognised the threat that unrestricted use of AI could represent in elections and democracy, has banned the use of generative AI in its political adverts. Why does a private company seem to be doing more to curb the spread of electoral misinformation than this Government?

Correcting the Record (24 Oct 2023)

Owen Thompson: I echo the comments of the Leader of the House and the shadow Leader of the House, the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell), in welcoming this report and the work of the Procedure Committee, its members and its Clerks, and that is not just because I am a former member of that Committee who was serving on it when this inquiry started. That is purely coincidental. With these...

Honesty in Politics — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (23 Oct 2023)

Owen Thompson: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) for opening the debate and for bringing the petitions before us, and I thank all those who signed them. They have to be commended for their foresight, given that they signed up before many of the issues touched on this afternoon even came to light. We live in strange and turbulent times, and there is a danger that...

The commission has also published an initial analysis of voter ID in the May local elections in England, saying that further work is required to ensure...

Electoral Commission Committee: Voter ID: National Elections (20 Jul 2023)

Owen Thompson: I again thank my hon. Friend for that question. It is too soon to draw conclusions about the impact of voter ID on specific groups of people, but the commission has said that some of the emerging evidence is concerning, with the example that data suggests that disabled people and those who are unemployed were more likely than others to give ID as a reason for not voting. Elections should be...

Electoral Commission Committee: Election Guidance (20 Jul 2023)

Owen Thompson: The commission regularly publishes guidance for political parties, candidates and non-party campaigners to help them comply with their legal obligations.
