[Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] — Elected Mayors and Local Government ( 9 Jul 2015)

Owen Thompson: I, too, commend the hon. Member for Coventry South (Mr Cunningham) for securing the debate. Obviously, my colleagues and I in the Scottish National party pass no comment on the structures of local government in England. That is ultimately a matter for the people of England, local government being devolved to Scotland, so although the structures are of interest to us, we will reflect on our...

[Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] — Elected Mayors and Local Government ( 9 Jul 2015)

Owen Thompson: I am delighted that someone has given me the opportunity to bring this up, because it is a common misconception. The SNP Scottish Government have done more to pass decision making, accountability and authority to local authorities, rather than taking it in to a central point. The hon. Gentleman gave the example of the police and fire services. I was a member of Midlothian Council for almost...

[Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] — Elected Mayors and Local Government ( 9 Jul 2015)

Owen Thompson: Very much so. I have seen decisions being taken by the bigger regional bodies, as a small part of what they do, and the large city authority would always get its way, no matter what anyone wanted. Rather than centralisation, there has been far more local decision making and input.

Bills Presented — Bat Habitats Regulation Bill: Clause 31 — Crown Estate ( 6 Jul 2015)

Owen Thompson: I have listened intently to the hon. Gentleman’s résumé of the actions he has taken, but for how long does he feel that it is appropriate for Members in Scotland to wait for a living wage economy to be introduced when we have such support for it from the Government and from local government across the nation? Should we be going at the pace of the slowest by waiting for the UK Government...
