[Dr William McCrea in the Chair] — Overseas Territories (Governance) (11 Dec 2012)

Ian Lucas: ...of Wrexham has benefited massively from the CPA, because we have developed a very strong link with Lesotho in southern Africa as a direct result of a visit that I paid there in 2005. It led to very close links between schools in my constituency and in Lesotho, which is a developing country. As a direct result of the CPA visit that I made, Wrexham hosted the Lesotho Olympic team. That sort...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Turks and Caicos Islands (11 Dec 2012)

Mark Simmonds: ...Parliamentary Association organised an election observer mission with participation from Gibraltar, countries from the Caribbean region and the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) and my hon. Friend the Member for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge). The mission’s full report will be issued shortly, but I note their initial statement that “the voters...

Mindfulness-Based Therapy (4 Dec 2012)

Chris Ruane: I wish to make a speech about mindfulness and unemployment. I have given up a lot to be here tonight according to my hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty). I could have gone to the Irish ambassador’s Christmas party. That is how important my speech is. [ Interruption. ] I think that my hon. Friend is going there now. The World Health Organisation states...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty (1 Nov 2012)

Sajid Javid: ...of the specific issues raised by my hon. Friends and by all hon. Members —I believe that 15 spoke from the Back Benches. As the Minister responsible for air passenger duty, I would like to acknowledge clearly the important contribution the aviation industry makes to the growth and development of the UK economy. The sector connects millions of UK consumers and businesses with...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Turks and Caicos Islands (29 Oct 2012)

Mark Simmonds: Since the UK Government's announcement on 12 June that elections will be held on 9 November, we have actively supported the interim Government in the Turks and Caicos Islands, led by the Governor, to prepare for elections which are free and fair and which are held to the highest possible international standards. The UK Government have funded a number of projects to support this and will...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Dairy Industry (13 Sep 2012)

Jonathan Edwards: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I congratulate the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) on securing the debate. Over the summer, much of my political work centred on the dairy industry. I was invited by the National Farmers Union to meet local farmers, a meeting hosted by Mr and Mrs Thomas of Dolau Gleision farm near Llandeilo. It was an...

Scottish Football (Tax Liabilities) (29 Feb 2012)

Thomas Docherty: ...with the Court of Session. For the two clubs involved, despite the support of the SPL and the SFA, it will probably take months to recover the money to which they are legally and morally entitled from Duff and Phelps. The second category of club involves any club in Scotland—or elsewhere—that has entered into financial transactions with Rangers, for example over the transfer of...

Bill Presented — Financial Services: Strategic Defence and Security Review (26 Jan 2012)

Thomas Docherty: I am most grateful to the Minister. He is obviously very clever, because he has led me straight on to my next point, which is about the replacement for the Invincible class, the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier. He perhaps forgot to mention that, even some time after 2020, when we eventually get a functioning aircraft carrier, it will only be part-time. We will only be able to operate...

Carbon Capture and Storage (Scotland) (17 Jan 2012)

Eilidh Whiteford: I congratulate the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) on securing the debate. I am rather disappointed that he chose to squander his opportunity today; instead of asking the Government about progress on the plans for carbon capture and storage in the UK, he preferred to take pot shots at the First Minister, who not only is not here but does not have the power to make...

Immigration (Stranraer/Cairnryan) (22 Nov 2011)

Russell Brown: ...he has turned up this evening—has visited the Galloway ports, despite imposing major cuts on them. I come now to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty). It is worth mentioning the role of the SNP Scottish Government in this. Although they have been quick to join the chorus of criticism of the UK Government’s cuts, they themselves...

Prayers: Clause 1 — Duties of the Secretary of State (9 Sep 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ..., so the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart), by his own logic, should not have voted on that Bill. Was it not political opportunism, rather than some great principle, that led him to do so?

National Policy Statements (Renewable Energy Infrastructure): Draft Financial Services Bill (Joint Committee) (18 Jul 2011)

Thomas Docherty: Obviously, Mr Speaker, the hon. Member for Cambridge (Dr Huppert) led me down a very tempting path, and I will do my best not to be drawn down it again. The draft Bill is a phenomenally large document. I am sure that on your evenings off, Mr Speaker, when you are drinking a glass of mulled wine, you will have had a chance to flick through its contents. It is a wide-ranging Bill that seeks,...

Bail (Amendment): New Clause 1 — Medical insurance (pensioner tax relief) (28 Jun 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...Benches. At a time when there is a real-terms cut in NHS spending—I must correct the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone)—because the promised increase in funding under this Conservative-led Government is lower than inflation, whether using the consumer prices index or the retail prices index, these Conservative Members propose that we should take money, which Government Front...

Armed Forces Bill (Programme) (No. 2): New Clause 1 — Closure or realignment of Armed Forces bases (14 Jun 2011)

Angus Robertson: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty). I have listened closely to his arguments, and I found them tremendously persuasive. When discussing his new clause and mine, the question we must ask is whether the way in which the Ministry of Defence deals with base closures or realignments is adequate. Is the way in which the criteria are...

Postal Services Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 27 — General authorisation to provide postal services (9 Jun 2011)

Michael Connarty: ...of the CWU parliamentary liaison group, which worked together with the CWU and the Post Office, was asked to participate in the Committee considering this Bill. I might ask the Minister some detailed questions that he could have answered before if I had been granted access to his knowledge and aspirations in Committee. That position will have to be explained by the business managers—not...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: General Matters (24 May 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...the Government’s strategic defence and security review and the refitting and basing of the surface and submarine fleets. Two Type 23 frigates, HMS Somerset and HMS Richmond, which had been scheduled for refitting at Rosyth dockyard, are now to be refitted at Devonport. I do not oppose the move—after all, Devonport has a large hole in its order book thanks to the decisions of this...

Standards and Privileges (16 May 2011)

Kevin Barron: ...commissioner commented, it can never be acceptable to submit misleading documents to those charged with overseeing public finances. As this case shows, the right hon. Member’s desire for secrecy led him to act in a way that was not compatible with the standards expected of an MP. Whatever the motive, I do not think that is acceptable. Now I will address the concerns of those who think...

Financial Services (Regulation of Derivatives): New Clause 9 — Rail passenger services (15 Mar 2011)

Thomas Docherty: ...It is also responsible for funding the building of new railways in Scotland, and it is worth noting that a number of new railway lines opened in Scotland between 1999 and 2007 thanks to the Labour-led Scottish Executive. The Airdrie to Bathgate line and the Larkhall to Milngavie line are two obvious examples. It is disappointing that the SNP Government saw fit to cancel the Glasgow airport...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: HMS Illustrious (14 Mar 2011)

Thomas Docherty: I am sure the House will agree that the fact that HMS Illustrious is coming back into service ahead of schedule is a testament to the professionalism of the work force and the management, led by Mike Pettigrew. Will the Minister find the time to come to the dockyard to see HMS Illustrious before she sets sail, so that he can see yet again why the best place for the refit and refurbishment of...

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment): Clause 18 — Status of EU law dependent on continuing statutory basis (11 Jan 2011)

Michael Connarty: ..., and clause 18 is the biggest joke in it. It is a silly Bill. As we have already heard, it gives us no ability to change anything. My hon. Friend the Member for Dunfermline and West Fife (Thomas Docherty) quoted a Member who said today that at least the clause did no harm. In fact, it does nothing positive at all. I respect the hon. Member for Aldridge-Brownhills (Mr Shepherd), who has...
