Armed Forces Day (26 Jun 2019)

Martin Docherty: ...forces in Scotland have a very long history. Indeed, Scotland is a martial nation that since its earliest days has sought to reflect the nation within it. As far back as 1138, our late King David I led a diverse army of Normans, Germans, English, Northumbrians and—would you believe it—Cumbrians, although the less we say about the battle of the standard, the better. Reflecting on that...

Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill: Meaning of wild animal (4 Jun 2019)

Sandy Martin: I thank all those right hon. and hon. Members whose persistence has led to the Bill coming before us today: in particular, my right hon.

Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim...

Scottish Parliament: Whole-life Custody Sentences (4 Jun 2019)

Liam Kerr: ...that experience—directly or indirectly—ignore the strength of public feeling on the issue and elevate their concerns for the offender. To them, I simply say: Linda McDonald, the family of Paige Docherty and others are completely right to demand that life means life. I will address the public safety point. Some offenders commit crimes that are so appalling that the risk of reoffending...

China: UK policy — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (7 May 2019)

Julia Lopez: Thank you for calling me to speak, Sir Edward. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Aldershot (Leo Docherty) on securing this important debate, and on setting out a very wise and thoughtful approach to relations with China. Too often in this place we concentrate on short-term issues that are driven by the news cycle, while entirely overlooking critical strategic questions that will...

Sikhs: Contribution to the UK — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (30 Apr 2019)

Alison Thewliss: ...and International Development, Ben Macpherson, who is also the local MSP, was out there giving his support to the community as well. My hon. Friend the Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes) has been active in campaigning on the Jagtar Singh Johal case.

Electoral Funding: Unincorporated Associations — [Mr Ian Austin in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Martin Docherty: ...and Unionist candidate’s carefully managed public persona. Thanks to the excellent work of investigative journalists such as Peter Geoghegan and Adam Ramsay at openDemocracy, we have been led carefully through a mystery tour of Mr Cook’s business dealings, which belied the conventional suburban milieu from which he came. DDR Recycling is now in liquidation, owing the UK taxpayer...

Communities: Charities and Volunteers (13 Feb 2019)

Martin Docherty: ...of funding is paramount. Over the 2014-2020 funding period, Scotland has secured €941 million in European structural investment fund money, a significant proportion of which was to be channelled to third sector organisations in a diverse range of communities. This funding enables third sector organisations to access funds under the following interventions: employability pipelines, social...

Armed Forces (Derogation from European Convention on Human Rights) (9 Jan 2019)

Leo Docherty: ...warfare in the modern age carried out by our soldiers. That was the case up until 1998 and the unintended consequences of the Human Rights Act and the European convention on human rights, which has led to a catalogue of injustice involving hundreds of soldiers from all operational theatres. Those cases go on today. No other country has such a perverse situation in which soldiers who have...

Petition - a National Carers Strategy for Unpaid Carers: Jagtar Singh Johal (27 Nov 2018)

Martin Docherty: ...that. I am glad to say that the Government have not been the only source of pressure applied to the Government of the Republic of India on Jagtar’s case. In this place, the APPG on UK Sikhs, led by the redoubtable hon. Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston, has been a great source of support for me, for the family, and for my staff—or rather my team; I do not use the word “staff”—some...

Royal Navy Base: Bahrain (20 Nov 2018)

Leo Docherty: ...efficiently. Up to a company group of people can live on the base—there are around 500 bed spaces. I was honoured to receive tremendous hospitality on my interesting visit in October, which was led by Commodore Steve Dainton, commander of the UK maritime component. I was pleased to go aboard the mine countermeasures vessel HMS Blyth and to discuss its role with Captain Drewett and the...

Leo Docherty: ...—not least in Aldershot, north Hampshire, the Blackwater Valley and Farnborough—and this drives a lot of the job creation that we are now seeing in this country. As I have said, this has led to the lowest rates of unemployment since 1975, the year before I was born.

Scottish Parliament: Age of Criminal Responsibility (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (13 Nov 2018)

Mary Fee: ...that she experienced at the age of only 13, it shows that change is required to keep children and young people away from such stressful and frightening situations, regardless of the reasons that led them there. James Docherty, from the violence reduction unit, related his own experiences as a young child who spent time in a police station. He told the committee: “I spent time in prison...

Yemen (11 Sep 2018)

Alistair Burt: an end, and there is criticism of all parties to the conflict. The killing of children can never be justified—however it occurs, it cannot be right—so the catalyst for this debate, so ably led by the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg), is clear. The only real issue is how to bring it to an end and what the UK can do. However grateful I am, I beg colleagues not to...

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Alistair Burt: a relationship between friends. As the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) said, we sometimes need to make representations to our friends. As my hon. Friend the Member for Aldershot (Leo Docherty) made clear, we work with Bahrain and other regional partners to confront states and non-state actors whose influence fuels instability in the region. We remain committed to working...

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Martin Docherty: ...position of this existing political state. The reality of the claim of right—which, I must say, was written in 1988—is another example of the expression of that self-evident truth, acknowledging as it does the sovereign right of the Scottish people to determine the form of government best suited to their needs. It is a principle well-versed and affirmed in ancient right that neither...

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Drew Hendry: ...or no job security. Scotland is ahead of the curve in promoting fairer working practices and protecting workers’ rights. Only today, my hon. Friend the Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes) sought leave to bring in a Bill for a genuinely representative body for the armed forces. The SNP has led on such matters at Westminster and on tackling exploitative work practices....

HPV Vaccination for Boys — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (2 May 2018)

Steve Brine: ..., alongside the incidence of genital warts, the JCVI has considered whether HPV vaccination is now needed for males. I understand the point that the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes) made about the surprise about penile cancer. He has more experience of the subject than I do, but it is not a surprise to me. I work with a very good charity called Orchid Cancer,...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law: National Security and Russia (26 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: for saying this, but some of the comments from Government Front Benchers over the weekend were perhaps unnecessary as we try to promote dialogue at this extremely difficult time. We must acknowledge that there is still no definitive proof that the Salisbury attack was carried out by the Russian regime. There has been no admission of any culpability and nor are we likely to receive any....
