Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: ...Council published the report on the impact of Brexit on Derry/Londonderry north-west city region, which was damning about the impact of Brexit on shared services, practical healthcare services, GP-led services and surgery services between County Donegal and the Strabane District Council region of Northern Ireland. It is shocking that that has yet to come up in the debate. The people who...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords] (19 Mar 2018)

Leo Docherty: ...hon. Friend give us a little more detail about how information about the changes will be spread? My constituency is lucky to benefit from the work of the North East Hampshire Domestic Abuse Forum, led by the magnificent Karen Evans, which does a tremendous job of spreading such information. What provision does the Bill make for that sort of work?

Burma: [Day 2] (15 Mar 2018)

Kevin Foster: based more on sustainability and diversification, perhaps with a greater focus on smaller producers than on large agribusinesses. I welcomed what my hon. Friend the Member for Aldershot (Leo Docherty) said about security. If I had a little more time, I might dwell slightly more on that subject, and on the fact that European affairs could well be dominated by what Russia decides to do...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Martin Docherty: ...congratulate the right hon. Member for Newbury (Richard Benyon) on securing this debate. It is one that I seem to find myself in more and more often; I am sure the Minister is thinking, “Oh, not Docherty-Hughes again,” but I am also delighted to see the Minister in their place. There seems to be a consistent narrative, when we debate the diplomatic service and resources, of concerns...

Scottish Parliament: Scotch Whisky (Contribution to Tourism) (27 Feb 2018)

Gordon MacDonald: ...whisky to be exported in bulk to places where it can be blended with other whiskies and locally branded, and it then competes with our own whisky, or that same local whisky can be deliberately labelled wrongly and sold as Scotch whisky at a premium price, despite being a counterfeit product. Blended whisky accounts for 70 per cent by value and 90 per cent by volume of all whisky exported....

British Armed Forces: Size and Strength — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

Stewart McDonald: It is a pleasure to welcome you to one of our weekly defence debates, Ms Dorries. I see the usual faces around the Chamber. I sincerely congratulate the hon. Member for Aldershot (Leo Docherty) on securing the debate. We have heard Members adumbrate the drop in the size of the armed forces. An axe is being taken to capability left, right and centre. The National Audit Office reports that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Devolution of Powers (24 Jan 2018)

Martin Docherty: Resistance to further devolution of powers comes from many quarters, such as the Constitutional Research Council led by the Secretary of State’s friend, and prominent Scottish Tory, Richard Cook. As we all know, the CRC funded the Democratic Unionist party’s version of hard Brexit in the campaign. Does the Secretary of State now agree that it is time for full disclosure of those funds? If...

Defence (11 Jan 2018)

Bob Seely: ...remain a reservist soldier. I thank the hon. Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) very much for securing this debate, and it is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes). In this brief speech, I would like to talk about defence in the broader sense of the word, because the security of our nation rests on many things, not just on how many tanks or...

Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Tobias Ellwood: ...thoughts and conclusions together on this important, interesting and timely debate. Like others, I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Yeovil (Mr Fysh), who has shown passion and a detailed understanding not only of what is going on his constituency, but of the wider picture of the defence capability. I congratulate him on bringing this debate to the fore. Looking around the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Governance and Political Stability (13 Sep 2017)

Martin Docherty: ...lack of good governance in the province of Northern Ireland, perhaps he would like to tell his Back Benchers why he and his Government technically gave £1 billion to an unaccountable executive, led by the DUP.

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Leo Docherty: ...and soul into. Progress was made thanks to his efforts, but despite his commitment and earnest professionalism, the forces of sectarianism, violence, Shi’ite rivalry and Iranian meddling prevailed. One day, after leaving the very same police station that I had visited the previous winter, his patrol was struck by an IED, and he and his driver, Private Lee Ellis, were instantly killed....

Kurdistan Region in Iraq — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: ...common. That is something that struck me when I was there on my two visits. My hon. Friend the Member for North Tyneside (Mary Glindon) said she was delighted by the liberation of Mosul, and appealed to the Government to provide clinical psychologists and psychiatrists to help with the trauma of Daesh’s rape victims in the city. I hope the Minister will tell us a little more about that....

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Simon Clarke: ...said: “Except for ‘going over the top’ in war, there is hardly any experience so alarming as giving one’s maiden speech.” I pay tribute to my hon. Friends the Members for Aldershot (Leo Docherty) and for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John Lamont) for giving such excellent examples today. MacMillan, like me, was a Teesside MP, sitting for Stockton South, which was so ably...

Backbench Business (16 Mar 2017)

Martin Docherty: ...of the UK Government’s proposals to close a number of jobcentres in their respective constituencies. I hope the Minister will take their points on board. I feel for the Minister, because I am led to believe that there will be a closure in his own constituency, which must be going down like a lead balloon. Although I agree with the arguments put forward by colleagues, there are special...

Armed Forces Covenant (2 Feb 2017)

Martin Docherty: ...White Paper before the House. I have my own copy with me. We have found that at least one chart in the document contains incorrect information. Chart 7.1 states that United Kingdom workers are entitled to 14 weeks of annual holiday, whereas the chart should state that they have 5.6 weeks paid holiday. The mistake has led to another error, as the chart claims that European Union minimum...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Martin Docherty: ...Scotland, my constituency voted to remain, which is why I am making this contribution. I am mandated by my community and by my nation to do so in the hope that the United Kingdom Government acknowledge and listen to their concerns. Some may refuse to represent and stand up for their remain voting constituents, and instead meekly act as a cheerleader for the United Kingdom Government as...

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy: DWP Policies and Low-income Households (17 Jan 2017)

Martin Docherty: ...constituents add to the overwhelming evidence from Opposition Members and organisations such as the Institute for Government and the Resolution Foundation. It is clear that universal credit has failed and that urgent action is needed from the United Kingdom Government, which is why I fully support my colleagues in their call for the roll-out to be suspended. It is obvious from the lessons...

Healthcare (Devon): Type 26 Frigates: Clyde (18 Oct 2016)

Martin Docherty: .... That small northern European nation seems far more capable of defending its territorial waters and meetings its obligations to NATO than the United Kingdom. Amazingly, despite long-standing knowledge of the Kuznetsov’s deployment, and it coming as NATO’s largest annual exercise is taking place in Scotland, the Government have been able to rustle up only one Type 23 frigate and one...

Dog Meat (South Korea) — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (12 Sep 2016)

Paul Monaghan: ...the UK. It is clearly important that we recognise our own weaknesses and respect the sovereignty of other nations. Again, I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes) for making that point so clearly, along with the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson). Many Asian countries have only relatively recently begun to consider dogs as...

Backbench Business: EU Referendum: UK-Ireland Border (19 Jul 2016)

Martin Docherty: ..., free moment of people and goods are, and continue to be, important benefits, and ones that affect many of my constituents. I have no doubt that that was one of the contributing factors that led to such a large vote to remain, not only in my constituency but across the nation of Scotland. The status of EU nationals living in this country must be urgently addressed to reassure those...
