Business of the House: House of Commons Business (8 May 2014)

Thomas Docherty: What the Joint Committee said in paragraphs 226 and 227 was that the solution, if it was not to be legislation, would be to have the debate that we are having today and the debate that was led by the noble Lord Brabazon in the other place. I note that the Deputy Leader of the House was not in his place when the shadow Leader of the House was at the Dispatch Box. In case he has not been...

Clause 4 — Effect of ceasing to be a member (28 Feb 2014)

Armed Forces (Prevention of Discrimination) Bill (24 Jan 2014)

Rory Stewart: I congratulate the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) on introducing a Bill that obviously reflects a deep intuition, a deep sense of respect for the military, and a deep desire to show the public admiration for the military for the service they provide and the sacrifices they make. So I begin by acknowledging that the Bill has been introduced with the best of...

Health Care (London) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (8 Jan 2014)

Mary Macleod: rewarding people who have done incredible work in the health service, whether they are clinicians or support staff, and I recently handed out awards at the West Middlesex, which is ably led by Dame Jacqueline Docherty. I also want to pay tribute to London’s air ambulance service. During the Christmas period, there was a fire and a massive explosion in Chiswick, and the air ambulance...

Public Bill Committee: Water Bill: Clause 47 - Flood insurance (12 Dec 2013)

Thomas Docherty: .... We are thankful that no lives were lost. I want to bring the Minister back to our earlier exchange, because I have had a chance to read the evidence that we took in response to questions led by the hon. Member for Newton Abbot. I must press the Minister, because there was genuine confusion in the evidence session. Mr Kerr said that a group of people whose houses were built before 2009...

Public Bill Committee: Water Bill: Schedule 2 - Water undertakers’ duties as regards water supply licencees (5 Dec 2013)

Thomas Docherty: ...example from Wales, there has been a prolonged, protracted legal battle between the water company and the paper mill owner, which has resulted at every stage in defeat for the water company. It has led to a regrettable situation for the wider community, where the paper company has been able to argue that it is cheaper for it to be serviced by another water provider. It has, in effect,...

Thomas Docherty: ...and vibrant market—[Interruption.] The hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton says that it is yet to be tested. May I remind him who introduced retail competition in Scotland? It was the Labour-led Scottish Executive. I also gently point out that the Liberal Democrats were part of that coalition.

Members have covered a number of aspects of the Bill and, as it is a debate on Second Reading, some...

Business of the House: Amendments to Bills (Explanatory Statements) (6 Nov 2013)

Tom Brake: ...Walker), for his thoughtful and charmingly concise opening comments, and for explaining to the House the reasoning and conclusions of his Committee. I will set out a little of the history that has led to this debate, although I am a little disappointed that my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) did not do so. I will then explain why the House should support...

Water Industry (5 Nov 2013)

Gavin Shuker: .... It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Wokingham (Mr Redwood). I think that he and I will agree about one thing: the botched privatisation of the late 1980s and early ’90s has led us to a wholly undesirable situation. However, we are where we are. As someone who, in the past couple of years, has had responsibility on the Opposition Front Bench for the issue of water, I...

Business of the House: Trident Alternatives Review (17 Jul 2013)

Gemma Doyle: ...but they have been replaced with new uncertainties. Indeed, the hon. Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Oliver Colvile) and my hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) outlined those threats, which are real. They are not imaginary or historic; they are very much present. We cannot predict what will happen. It is this age of uncertainty that is one of...

Defence Reform Bill (16 Jul 2013)

Tobias Ellwood: .... We had the old Clansman set and must have been one of the few armies across the world still using open voice procedure that was not even encrypted. The SA80 was issued to us, only to be recalled because of problems with the catches. It was then mended and given back to us at double the cost of the original contract. I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate and to place...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Wright Committee (2 Jul 2013)

Thomas Docherty: ...Wokingham (Mr Redwood), he busts the myths about some of the rebellions that have taken place on the Government side and he points out that some of the most effective and important rebellions were led by Members who were part of the 2010 intake. I am referring to the entirely sensible pushing back against the Deputy Prime Minister’s nonsensical ideas for House of Lords reform, the EU...

Business of the House (6 Mar 2013)

Thomas Docherty: ...the Budget. I confess that it has been a while since I have been invited to Downing street. I am sure I am on the guest list for the current temporary occupant’s next supper club, but I have been led to believe that it says on the plaque on the door, “First Lord of the Treasury”. I am not an eminent parliamentarian like you, Mr Speaker, but I understand that the First Lord of the...

Mark Francois: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Wrexham (Ian Lucas) and I commend the hon.

Commercial Lobbyists (Registration and Code of Conduct) Bill (1 Feb 2013)

Thomas Docherty: ...Committee’s agenda and I did not wish to pre-judge anything. I hope that has provided some reassurance to the hon. Gentleman. I thank the hon.

As set out in the Bill, those who undertake this activity—I hope we have had a good...
