Conduct of the Right Hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (30 Nov 2021)

Anneliese Dodds: ..., a pleasure to follow the Paymaster General, the right hon. and learned Member for Northampton North (Michael Ellis) and the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford), who opened today’s debate. I have to say that I find it strange to see massed ranks of Conservatives in the Chamber for this debate, when they appeared desperate to flee the Chamber no fewer than two...

Strengthening Standards in Public Life (17 Nov 2021)

Matt Western: ...of politics. For that reason, the Nolan principles, established in 1995, serve as a fundamental, concrete basis for everything that we do. Selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership were and should be our guiding principles. Put simply, “we need all in positions of trust to set an example.” Those are not my words, but the words of every...

Opposition Day: Randox Covid Contracts (17 Nov 2021)

Owen Thompson: ...a global pandemic steps need to be taken and everybody recognised that steps needed to be taken that are not necessarily in line with the normal process, but the UK Government employed a VIP lane open to Government Ministers and members of the Government party that was not open to anybody else. Contracts were handed out through personal contacts, WhatsApp exchanges and paid lobbyists for...

Committee on Standards: Decision of the House (8 Nov 2021)

Chris Bryant: ...land, we considered the matter, as judges would and as many tribunals would. I would just say to the right hon. Member that he voted for a motion that, I am afraid, did not close the matter on Mr Paterson. It left it completely and utterly open—deliberately so—and, indeed, Mr Paterson still asserts that he is innocent and that, if he were a Member, he would do the whole thing all over...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 63 - Referrals in relation to subsidy schemes (4 Nov 2021)

Bill Esterson: ...we have heard during our deliberations about the scrutiny of potential problems with subsidies awarded under schemes. There is the potential for a back door of free, unscrutinised public cash being opened up. We have seen problems throughout the pandemic where scrutiny was removed. I will not go over them in too much detail. We have heard about them already, such as the Health...

Committee on Standards (3 Nov 2021)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...today, when we are considering a live case. In this case, the Committee concluded: “This is an egregious case of paid advocacy”. It said that the right hon. Member for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson) “repeatedly…used his privileged position…to secure benefits for two companies for whom he was a paid consultant”, and that this “has brought the House into disrepute.” A lot...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Kevan Jones: ...we have seen, predicted by the Prime Minister, was not inevitable, but I do agree with the right hon. Members for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) and for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson), who said that that when we withdrew air, logistic and intelligence support, it was inevitable. I raised this with the Prime Minister on 8 July, when he said: “It is not open…to the...

Women’s Health Outcomes - Motion to Take Note (8 Jul 2021)

Lord Bethell: ...of Kennington for tabling a debate on this incredibly important matter. I congratulate her on smashing through dozens of anatomical taboos in such a splendid fashion in her extremely important opening remarks. I believe that, as has been discussed today, the problem statement under debate is very clear—Nadine Dorries said it in another place earlier today, and it was echoed by the noble...

Government Contracts: Covid-19 — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Tonia Antoniazzi: ...of the pals of the Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, the former Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs— the right hon. Member for North Shropshire (Mr Paterson)—the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, the Prime Minister’s former adviser Dominic Cummings and others. I have been an MP for slightly more than four years now, and I am...

Menopausal Symptoms: Support (9 Jun 2021)

Nadine Dorries: ...and not being given the treatment they want—with most of it within the healthcare arena. We know that women are not listened to in the healthcare arena. As a result of the Cumberlege report, the Paterson report and so many other reports, we know that this is the case. To help ensure that women receive the best possible care, NICE published guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of the...

Environment Bill - Second Reading (7 Jun 2021)

Viscount Ridley: ...in biodiversity net gain will be sold to developers. This is a huge mistake, because it will inevitably crowd out a developing market in these credits. It is statist and anti-competitive, and hence open to legal challenge. Nature should not be left to risk-averse public sector monopolies. We should all be allowed to play our part in its enhancement.

Scottish Parliament: European Charter of Local Self-Government (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (23 Mar 2021)

Tom Mason: ...conceived. In 2017, after 20 years as a justice of the peace, I became a councillor again in Aberdeen. In the same year, I arrived—unexpectedly at my age—as an MSP. I was not the oldest, as Gil Paterson pipped me for that honour, although I did become a committee convener, albeit for only two minutes. I have retained my local government connections throughout—indeed, on leaving this...

Women’s Health Strategy (8 Mar 2021)

Nadine Dorries: I join the hon. Lady in wishing every woman across the world a happy International Women’s Day. She opened by talking about the mental health taskforce and saying it is not the first of its kind, but it absolutely is. It was a five-year project that the NHS used to bring together women and organisations from across the healthcare sector to develop a mental health plan—a five-year...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Parliamentary Standards (Sexual Harassment and Complaints Process) Bill: Stage 3 (4 Mar 2021)

Patrick Harvie: ...principles. We must acknowledge that. Neil Findlay reinforced that point and recalled the results of the survey carried out earlier in the parliamentary session, which should disturb us all. Gil Paterson noted that the survey suggested that a number of people had chosen not to make complaints, perhaps out of fear of harming their careers. None of us should be willing to accept that. The...

Scottish Parliament: Post-mortem Examinations (Defence Time Limit) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Jan 2021)

Gil Paterson: I am delighted to open the debate on the general principles of the Post-mortem Examinations (Defence Time Limit) (Scotland) Bill. The bill has been a long time in the making. I began it quite some time ago, in 2016, following a meeting with my constituent Pamela Munro, whose 15-year-old daughter, Paige, was murdered on 19 March 2016. Despite the charging of a suspect within a week of...

Patrick Finucane: Supreme Court Judgment - Statement (2 Dec 2020)

...the state to decide what form of investigation, if indeed any is now feasible, is required in order to meet that requirement. It did not order a public inquiry, but in considering all the options open to me to meet the state’s obligations under Article 2, I have considered whether a public inquiry would be the most appropriate step to address the specific findings of the courts at this...

Patrick Finucane: Supreme Court Judgment (30 Nov 2020)

Brandon Lewis: ...the state to decide what form of investigation, if indeed any is now feasible, is required in order to meet that requirement. It did not order a public inquiry, but in considering all the options open to me to meet the state’s obligations under article 2, I have considered whether a public inquiry would be the most appropriate step to address the specific findings of the courts at this...

Coronavirus Outbreak: DWP Response (26 Nov 2020)

Stephen Timms: ...agreed unanimously that the £20 increase should stay and many others have taken that view, including the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s “Keep the lifeline” campaign. The campaign wrote an open letter to the Chancellor on 30 September with Citizens Advice, the Child Poverty Action Group, Feeding Britain, Oxfam, the Trussell Trust, disability charities and bishops. The Resolution...

Scottish Parliament: Safe Schools (18 Nov 2020)

Jamie Greene: ...debate. We disagree on many things, but on education we share a passion to get it right for every child—indeed, not only for every child but for every teacher, too. The issue of keeping schools open is one of the most challenging conundrums that all Governments face. It is also one of the most divisive. On one side are those who advocate complete closure and blanket online learning, and...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (18 Nov 2020)

Gil Paterson: Presiding Officer, my app froze; it just says that there is no vote currently open. I would have voted no, if given the opportunity.
