Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Agricultural Policy: Scotland (25 Jan 2018)

On 23 October 2017, the member for Dumfries and Galloway wrote to the Secretary of State requesting a review of the funding allocations. We will set out next steps in due course.

Scottish Parliament: Developing the Young Workforce (11 Jan 2018)

Emma Harper: ...the Stranraer DYW office, and I was welcomed by Justin Thomas and many education experts. Agriculture is a big employer in South Scotland, so the DYW office has been working with Dumfries and Galloway Council and NFU Scotland vice-president Gary Mitchell to encourage young persons to think about farming as a career path. Gary now has a young man from Stranraer toon working full time on his...

Armed Forces Act 2006 - Question for Short Debate (23 Nov 2017)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: Lewes jail. But that was not his offence; his mortal sin was to have a soldier flogged on a Sunday at a church parade, which was what the Motion was about. Flogging was abolished by Sir George Osborne Morgan, the Liberal Member of Parliament for Wrexham—which has already had a mention and is of course my home town—who was the Judge Advocate in 1881. I remember during my...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Agriculture: Subsidies (20 Nov 2017)

George Eustice: The Secretary of State received a letter from the member for Dumfries and Galloway requesting a review of intra-UK allocations of funding for agricultural support on 26 October. The Secretary of State also met Scottish Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy and Connectivity, Fergus Ewing, on 6 November to discuss intra-UK allocations. We will set out next steps in due course.

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy Convergence Moneys (25 Oct 2017)

Peter Chapman: .... Let me be clear that we on the Conservative benches still support the idea that this money should have come to Scotland. I have personally raised the issue with David Mundell, Andrea Leadsom, George Eustice and Michael Gove over the past 18 months or so since I first came to the chamber. The cabinet secretary will perhaps be aware of the letter from Alister Jack, MP for Dumfries and...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill ( 3 Jul 2017)

Bill Grant: ...thank my long-suffering wife, Agnes, our two daughters, Angela and Karen, and our family, who have been helpful in the journey that has brought me to this Chamber. Sandra Osborne, Phil Gallie and George Younger preceded Corri Wilson as MPs for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock. They were all excellent parliamentarians who may be remembered by some in this House. Let me take Members back to the...

National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

George Kerevan: ...Oh! What a Lovely War”. Earl Haig was a crusty Scot, with a deep Scottish accent, which Laurence Olivier definitely did not have, and Hugh Dowding happened to be born in Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway. His father was a teacher at Fettes school in Edinburgh. The unity of these islands in the Spitfire story goes all the way to Hugh Dowding from Moffat, who was head of Fighter Command in...

Scottish Parliament: Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal ( 8 Mar 2017)

Colin Smyth: ..., and I saw at first hand the difference that they made to people living with Parkinson’s. It is the same with Marie Curie’s helper service volunteers, including the 20 in Dumfries and Galloway, some of whom are in the public gallery this evening—I will refrain from speculating whether they had prosecco on the train on the way here. However, whether it is providing a friendly ear for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jan 2017)

Angus Robertson: May I begin with a tribute to Father George Thompson, who died shortly before Christmas? He led a remarkable life as a teacher, as a priest and as the Scottish National party Member of Parliament for Galloway. We extend our sympathies to his family. All of us in this House and across these islands care about the peace process and about the democratic institutions in Northern Ireland, so may I...

Commercial Financial Dispute Resolution Platform (15 Dec 2016)

Peter Dowd: The hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless) has summarised most of the things that I would have referred to. I thank the hon. Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan) for bringing the issue before us. I also want to touch on one or two points made by the hon. Member for Wycombe (Mr Baker) about the Austrian school. As he said, the system is not adequate to deal with the task...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (12 Oct 2016)

Chris Bryant: .... I know that you take very seriously your responsibility for protecting the rights of the House. I do not know whether you ever consult Facebook, but if you were to do so, you would find that George Galloway, a former Member of Parliament, still describes himself as a Member of Parliament. Would it not be in the interests of the House to make it absolutely clear to Facebook that he is not...

Scottish Parliament: Local National Health Services (28 Sep 2016)

Colin Smyth: come to Parliament today to share their stories with us. It is therefore a disgrace that the SNP amendment pretends that those communities and those concerns do not exist. As if in a scene from George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, the cabinet secretary’s Newspeak amendment would airbrush out any reference whatsoever to the word “concerns”. It does not even mention the...

Poverty - Motion to Take Note (14 Jul 2016)

Lord Mawson: the school was a run-down health centre with 11,000 patients. I quickly suspected, but could not prove at the time, that some dodgy practice was going on, but they were Asian GPs and the MP, George Galloway, was playing politics in the Bengali housing estate across the road, so it might have been seen as insensitive to suggest that all was not well. A politically correct culture, aided...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Referendum (12 Apr 2016)

Wayne David: Does the Minister agree that the only thing that Nigel Farage, George Galloway and Vladimir Putin have in common is that they want Britain to leave the European Union? Does that not say a lot about the consequences of our possible departure from the EU?

Scottish Parliament: Childcare Costs ( 8 Mar 2016)

Aileen Campbell: ...ensure that flexibility is there for the families with which it works. Early Years Scotland is developing playgroup solutions and support for the involvement of parents, for example in Dumfries and Galloway. The National Day Nurseries Association has developed forums and partnerships with local authorities across the country, with the result that the majority of local authorities no longer...

Business of the House (25 Feb 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...Æthelbert today, as he was the first king to establish laws in these lands banning blood feuds. I suspect that the out campaign and the Conservative party have need of him. After all, when George Galloway turned up at an out campaign the other day, half the room left; Nigel Farage thinks that Gove, Cummings and Johnson are too clever by half and has sacked all his deputies; the Prime...

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

Peter Bone: ...Labour MP, the co-chairman of Conservatives for Britain, four Conservative MPs, and the leader of Respect. In 2014, Ruth Davidson, our excellent Conservative leader in Scotland, linked arms with George Galloway in the national interest. Does the Prime Minister agree that Ruth Davidson was right and that sometimes we have to work with people we do not like?

Armed Forces Bill: Second Reading (11 Feb 2016)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...which will test the system in the extreme. Back in 1994, I was engaged in the defence of a lance-corporal, serving in Germany, on a murder charge. He was acquitted and returned to his regiment. George Galloway, then a Labour Member of Parliament for Glasgow, Hillhead, used parliamentary privilege to assert that a murderer had walked free and was still at large, serving in Her Majesty’s...
