Scottish Parliament: Ferries (28 Sep 2022)

Graham Simpson: ...from the Government, which was desperate to award the contract to the yard—and we know how that ended up. Yesterday, John Swinney told us that the vital documents cannot be found, and he said that it will be left to the Auditor General for Scotland to look into the matter. The Auditor General does a great job, but the Scottish Government should not be hiding behind him on this matter. In...

Ukraine (22 Sep 2022)

Leo Docherty: ...his place because of a pre-arranged appointment. He was right to point out that this was a shameful war of conquest and that Russia’s youth is being sacrificed on the altar of Putin’s ego. He said that Putin’s rhetoric shows that he is weak, not strong. Putin’s singular achievement in Ukraine has been to unify the west. He mentioned the leadership of President Zelensky; I think we...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (20 Sep 2022)

...(Minister, Canongate Kirk): This ancient parish in which our respective places of work—yours and mine—are set traces its origins to the 12th century and the legendary encounter between King David I and an angry stag, in the forest that once stood where the wide open plains of Holyrood park now extend, just beyond the palace. Just at the point when the stag was ready to attack King...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (10 Sep 2022)

Rob Roberts: ...She never took that duty lightly or casually—the omnipresent figure that bound us all together, providing a link to times gone by and to those people we have sadly lost along the way. People have said many times, “We shall never see her like again.” I really hope we do, because we all need that figurehead, that shining light, that ubiquitous inspiration for us to do all that we can...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

Lord Stephen: ...Arrows, my daughter was still very excited by it all and insisted on knowing which of the dignitaries was the Queen. She was too young to recognise her, and nobody was wearing a crown that day. We said, “Can you see David up there in the Royal box—David who was feeding you crisps in our dining room the other week?” This David was Lord Steel of Aikwood, the new Presiding Officer of...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty The Queen (9 Sep 2022)

Louie French: ...when the Queen last visited the London Borough of Bexley in 2005 to officially reopen Danson House in the constituency of my right hon. Friend the Member for Bexleyheath and Crayford (Sir David Evennett), just over the border from mine. She was greeted by crowds of well-wishers. It is also important to remember a previous visit to Bexley. In 1953, she visited Erith in the constituency of...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (9 Sep 2022)

Baroness Grey-Thompson: ...athlete parade on home soil, her speech was the moment when the Games began. She was the guiding light we wanted to live up to. In 2002 at the Games in Manchester, who can forget Kirsty Howard and David Beckham handing over the baton to the Queen? The Queen’s baton relay this year was an amazing event; thousands of people took part, and many thousands more came to watch, sometimes...

Women and Equalities Committee: Support for Local Food Infrastructure (8 Sep 2022)

Anthony Mangnall: It is a pleasure to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale). I agree with absolutely everything he said. The Campaign to Protect Rural England talks about there being 1.3 million acres of brownfield sites across the UK, which plays well to his point that we should look at those sites and at buildings for solar panels rather than using green fields. It is...

UK Energy Costs (8 Sep 2022)

Keir Starmer: ...by now. Yesterday, the Prime Minister desperately tried to blame Labour, and that intervention goes to that point. I remember the exchange across the Dispatch Box in 2006 when Prime Minister Blair said that he was pro-nuclear, and the Leader of the Opposition, David Cameron, did not know where to look. If Members have not seen the clip, they should have a look. The uncomfortable truth for...

Public Bill Committee: National Security Bill: Clause 48 - Reports on exercise of powers under this part (8 Sep 2022)

Holly Lynch: ...those of an existing independent reviewer, or will a new post be created for this legislation? As my right hon. Friend the shadow Home Secretary outlined on Second Reading, the scrutiny provided by David Anderson QC and Jonathan Hall QC of terrorism legislation has been invaluable. Members across the Committee will know that their scrutiny has identified weaknesses in terrorism legislation...

Business of the House (8 Sep 2022)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...a number of matters, and I look forward to working with the Leader of the House, as I looked forward to working with her predecessor. The well-respected former Cabinet Secretary, Lord O’Donnell, said, “it is always best to look at the reasons why your predecessor fell and fix them.” I have been calling for the Government to bring forward the Standards Committee’s recommendations on...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (7 Sep 2022)

David Simmonds: ...ensure that there is appropriate scrutiny of arrangements for regulation and of the implications of the mutual recognition agreements into which we propose to enter. Contrary to what is sometimes said about EU matters being dealt with by unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels, if anything, our criticism in the UK was that there was often too much scrutiny and democratic involvement. With...

Jagtar Singh Johal (7 Sep 2022)

David Davis: ...happened; it has happened on numerous occasions. When my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) was Prime Minister, she apologised for the most famous previous case in Libya. She said: “We are profoundly sorry for the ordeal that you both suffered and our role in it.” That was within a few months of Mr Johal’s arrest and the Government’s potential involvement. There...

Cryptoassets: Regulation — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (7 Sep 2022)

Martin Docherty: ...the inherent value of crypto, the market remains remarkably buoyant, despite all that has happened. Many of the challenges begin with the merest definitions involved in the whole business. As I said, I hate acronyms. All the DLTs, NFTs and CBDCs are confusing enough before we even get to the question of what crypto actually is. Is it an asset? Is it a technology? Is it an idea? Another...

Employment Law: Devolution to Scotland — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (6 Sep 2022)

Ian Murray: Maybe. Well, I am not so sure if the Minister is—maybe she will tell us. I do not want to get into the issue of bin strikes and so on— the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) mentioned the strikes—but they go to the heart of something that is infecting our politics at the moment. Our refuse collectors worked all through covid and did a marvellous job, but decided—quite...

Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill (6 Sep 2022)

Drew Hendry: ...owing to a lack of pickers, rising diesel costs, the loss of EU farming subsidies, and rocketing fertiliser costs. I can assure the right hon. Member for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale (David Mundell) that the sector in Scotland will not forgive this. Food and drink manufacture is twice as important to the Scottish economy as it is to the UK economy. As we have heard, even the...

Unavoidably Small Hospitals — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Sep 2022)

Feryal Clark: ...any additional support. The consequence is not just that local patients receive a poorer service but that lives are put at risk. In Cornwall, we saw utterly shameful scenes when 87-year-old David Wakeley had to wait 15 hours for an ambulance in a makeshift shelter that his family constructed after he fell in his garden. In 21st-century Britain, no one should have to experience what David...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Cop27 (6 Sep 2022)

David Lammy: As has been said, the appalling floods in Pakistan, which have affected more than 30 million people, show that the climate crisis is not a future problem—it is here and it is now. Despite the Minister’s bluster a moment ago, it is incredibly concerning that the new Conservative Prime Minister has said that she will impose a temporary moratorium on the green levies that we need to reach...

Urgent and Emergency Care (5 Sep 2022)

Wes Streeting: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement, and wish him and the ministerial team well as the new Prime Minister appoints her first Government. I also welcome what he said towards the end of his statement about the importance of vaccination and funding for motor neurone disease. Emergency care is in crisis. After 12 years of Conservative Governments, the NHS can no...

Ukraine Update (5 Sep 2022)

Wayne David: The Secretary of State will be aware that the head of the British Army said recently that the Army must be prepared, working with our allies, to successfully confront the Russian army. In that context, will the Secretary of State at least commit to examining whether it is appropriate for the Government to cut our Army by 10,000?
