Outcome of the EU Referendum (27 Jun 2016)

Martin Docherty: ...blitz in your own home. Since that period in 1941, NATO and what became the European Union have delivered military and economic peace and prosperity for Europe. Do not the British Government, led by this Prime Minister, agree with my community that he has delivered us from peace into unparalleled chaos?

Commonwealth War Graves Commission — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 May 2016)

Martin Docherty: ...it regularly pays tribute to the members who lost their lives, and to their families, either through official engagements or through personal moments of reflection. The sheer numbers of those killed during the conflicts brings home the horrifying fact that every family would have been affected by loss and that every community would have lost generations. Such loss not only has a...

Iraq Inquiry Report (14 Apr 2016)

Martin Docherty: ...across the communities of these islands, to protest against an invasion of the sovereign nation of Iraq. I would never have imagined that I would be standing here to reiterate the same belief that led me to march then—a belief shared by Scottish National party members, predominantly those who elected us, that that invasion was the wrong choice and an immoral one. Now, 13 years after our...

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — Faulty Electrical Imports (22 Mar 2016)

Yvonne Fovargue: ..., that they are simply getting a good deal, because the real thing seems overpriced. As we heard from the hon. Members for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan) and for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes), people on a low income always want to save money on goods, and the real thing is often overpriced. Many people—a quarter of people—buy fake goods knowingly. We need more...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 — Appeals and applications to the Tribunal (26 Jan 2016)

Martin Docherty: ...more importantly of those who have volunteered as trustees in the majority of charities across these islands. It is telling that the organisations that have caused the most concern are the so-called national charities with well kent faces that have been held in high regard. What is the impact on the organisations so far investigated? It is limited, yet the impact on the majority of small...

Community and Voluntary Sector Funding — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (24 Nov 2015)

Martin Docherty: ...of organisations—critically, through funds such as the Awards for All programme and Investing in Ideas—through funding reductions to the Big Lottery Fund. That fund enables local volunteer-led organisations to deliver support to communities at the coalface of community cohesion. In Scotland, the Big Lottery Fund awards more than 2,000 new grants every year to organisations ranging from...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Reserve Forces (17 Nov 2015)

Kirsten Oswald: ...day-to-day lives. As we have heard, the conclusion of an independent commission was that previously our reserve forces were neglected, under-exploited and in decline. We welcome that being acknowledged and the commitment to a new relationship with reservists, families, employers and society, but it was interesting to hear the concern raised by the hon. Member for Basildon and Billericay...

Military Personnel and Veterans (Children and Young Carers) (3 Nov 2015)

Mark Lancaster: I congratulate the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin John Docherty) on securing this debate on the support for children, young people and young carers of military personnel and veterans. I thank him for the constructive way in which he has approached the subject. I have been a serviceman for some 27 years, and I remain in the reserve forces. Having been deployed on operations some...

Opposition Day — [6th allotted day]: Humanitarian Crisis in the Mediterranean and Europe (9 Sep 2015)

Martin Docherty: ...are offering is still technically below the average among European Union members for asylum applications per head of population. As we all know, until recently, only 216 Syrian nationals were resettled in the United Kingdom through the Syrian vulnerable persons relocation scheme. If Members wish to question that, I would direct them in the first instance to the Library, where they will...

Petitions and e-petitions (24 Feb 2015)

Thomas Docherty: ...granted time. We also think that the proposals for granting privilege are sensible. This is not, and should not be, a back-door mechanism for ingenious Members to try to attach privilege, having failed with other mechanisms to circumvent the courts. I wish to make a few critiques of the current system, many of which, to be fair, the right hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire has already...

Recall of MPs Bill: Report (10 Feb 2015)

Lord Campbell-Savours: ...attention to my 15 years’ experience as a member of the Commons Privileges Committee. The noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Bolton, was a member of that committee during the critical period that led up to the Nolan reforms. I have supported recall for nearly 30 years. So what is the argument all about? I shall put it briefly. The Government’s original Bill, as presented to the Commons,...

Bill Presented: Backbench Business — Christmas Adjournment (18 Dec 2014)

Thomas Docherty: ...call, and we hope that the Deputy Leader of the House will refer it to the Leader of the House for consideration. As ever, the hon. Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) made an impassioned and knowledgeable speech about the situation in North Korea. She has a tremendous track record in relation to the persecution of Christians, and—again, as ever—she made a hugely important...

Recall of MPs Bill: Second Reading (17 Dec 2014)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, the Bill is what might be called a delayed knee-jerk reaction. Shocked to their respective cores by the expenses scandal, the leaderships of the three main parties all pledged in their manifestos in 2010 to legislate to provide for the recall of Members of Parliament found guilty of serious wrongdoing. Here, at last, in 2014, is the legislation. At least it is an extensively...

Recall of MPs Bill: Clause 9 — Recall petition to be made available for signing (24 Nov 2014)

Andrew Lansley: ...and that would have rewritten, on the back of a day or two’s debate in the Chamber, the relationship between MPs and their constituents. The hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) was rightly critical of that proposal and made it clear that it would change us substantially from being a representative democracy to being a more direct democracy whereby the electorate,...

Backbench Business: Finances of the House of Commons (11 Nov 2014)

Tom Brake: ...Westminster is both accessible and visitor friendly in a way that it is not at the moment. I wish to comment briefly on the comments made by the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty). I congratulate him on his triple-hatted role. I am familiar with the concept of wearing more than one hat. He highlighted the savings we have made from ending the production of...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 Oct 2014)

Thomas Docherty: ...Along with Lord Arran, he was a great champion of the decriminalisation of homosexuality. After Humphrey Berkeley lost his seat in 1966, Leo Abse took up the private Member’s Bill that ultimately led to the change in the law. What would have happened to Leo Abse—or indeed other parliamentary supporters—if recall had been available in 1967? I fear that some of those brave and...

The Chairman of Ways and Means took the Chair as Deputy Speaker (Standing Order No. 3) — European Union (Referendum) Bill (17 Oct 2014)

Peter Bone: I am sorry to hear that your voice is suffering, Madam Deputy Speaker; I hope you did not catch it from the Leader of the Opposition. The hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) is a really well-liked parliamentarian, but I think he will reflect later that some of his comments were unfortunate. He made clear his position in favour of the European Union, which is a...

Scottish Parliament: Policing (8 Oct 2014)

Kevin Stewart: I agree that it is completely a political stunt. I would go much further, because I agree with Brian Docherty that this is about “point-scoring politicians” interfering in operational matters. When the public have been unhappy with situations, there has been a fairly quick reaction. On stop and search and arming of officers, there has been a quick response from HMICS, the SPA, local...

Bill Presented — Civil Partnership Act 2004 (Amendment) Bill: Wild Animals in Circuses (3 Sep 2014)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...they passed the Animal Welfare Act 2006, which laid provisions to return to the issue, as we did in 2009 when we stated we were minded to introduce a ban but ran out of parliamentary time. As detailed by the former DEFRA Minister, the hon. Member for Newbury (Richard Benyon), in a debate last year, in this Parliament, the issue had commanded 120 parliamentary questions, over 16,000 items...

Deferred Divisions: All-party Parliamentary Groups (13 May 2014)

Thomas Docherty: ...meetings and increasing the number of officers, while at the same time ending the requirement to have 20 signed-up parliamentarians, is sensible. As the Committee explained, the 20-member rule has led to a number of cases in which MPs and peers who play no active role in an APPG are dragooned into helping out colleagues to meet the targets, as well as obscuring those who are actually...
