Prepayment Meters: Ofgem Decision ( 6 Feb 2023)

Ronnie Cowan: We have heard that the people who are struggling most to pay their energy bills are often the most vulnerable in our society, and they are being forced on to a higher tariff. We have also heard that the appeals system is cumbersome and people may even lose their house.

Scotland: Scotland's Future (11 Jan 2023)

Ronnie Cowan: I remember how in this place the Secretary of State for Scotland, while explaining the UK Government’s lack of appetite for a referendum on Scotland’s place in the United Kingdom, repeated many times that the route to a referendum in 2014 involved “consensus between both Governments.” Given that democracy is fuelled by consensus, is the Secretary of State for Scotland working towards...

Scotland’s Future (14 Dec 2022)

Ronnie Cowan: Mr Deputy Speaker: “That this House believes it should be for the Scottish people to determine the future constitutional status of Scotland; and accordingly makes provision as set out in this Order”. It is hard to believe that we even have to make that request. It is galling to think that my nation is expected to ask permission from another country to have control over its own...

Illegal Immigration (13 Dec 2022)

Ronnie Cowan: Because the existing system has failed so miserably, we have asylum seekers in hotels throughout the United Kingdom. I shall once again be meeting with asylum seekers in my constituency prior to Christmas. Decanting them to disused holiday parks, former student halls and surplus military sites does not solve the problem. When can I tell them that they will be allowed to sit down with an...

Standards: Code of Conduct and Guide to the Rules (12 Dec 2022)

Ronnie Cowan: Can the Minister assure me that we are not trying to delay beyond March because it falls during the current financial year?

Standards: Code of Conduct and Guide to the Rules (12 Dec 2022)

Ronnie Cowan: I shall be extremely brief. I will support both amendments but do not believe either of them goes far enough. In an ideal world we would all conduct ourselves in public and private by principles conducive not just to our own benefit and wellbeing, but to the benefit of the wider community, but we do not, so we have laws that enable the prosecution of lawbreakers. In Parliament we like to...

Council Tax (12 Dec 2022)

Ronnie Cowan: When we stand for election, every one of us appeals to the electorate to get out and vote. We impress on them how important it is that they use their democratic right to express their will through the ballot box. We want bigger turnouts and we seek more and better engagement, yet voter ID will have a detrimental effect on turnouts. We know that because we can measure it. The UK Government...

Independent Adviser on Ministerial Interests (30 Nov 2022)

Ronnie Cowan: It is important to point out that the Prime Minister appoints his own ethics adviser. He then determines which investigations can be undertaken, and then he determines what actions are taken depending on the outcome. Is that maybe why the last two ethics advisers have resigned?
