Points of Order (7 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The issue we have just discussed in the urgent question on pre-exposure prophylaxis is one that I and many other Members consider to be of huge national importance. Despite the effect of the drug, the numbers of people involved and the great national interest, Parliament has not actually substantially debated the issue aside from that urgent question. As a new...

HPV Vaccinations for MSM (7 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: It is good to see you in the Chair for the second sexual health debate of the day, Mr Hollobone, at which you have been present along with myself and other hon. Members. I congratulate the hon. Member for Finchley and Golders Green (Mike Freer) on securing this debate. He started by saying that it is perhaps not always nice to discuss unsavoury issues. Just imagine the lives we could have...

HPV Vaccinations for MSM (7 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Briefly, can the Minister tell me why those complexities exist here in England but not, presumably, in Scotland and Wales?

Orlando Attack: Uk Security Measures (13 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: May I begin by thanking you, Mr Speaker, for the extraordinary leadership you have shown, not only on the back of these events, but more widely, with the way in which you have absolutely established yourself as a friend of the LGBT community? The ostentatious flair of my community may be slightly restrained for the next few days as we think of those who were needlessly taken from us, but...

Outcome of the EU Referendum (27 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: The Prime Minister said that a leave vote was like putting a bomb under the economy. Is that part of his long-term economic plan?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (30 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: On airport expansion, the Secretary of State has achieved one thing—he has made the Leader of the Opposition look positively decisive. Does he not believe that he owes the Select Committee, this House and businesses across the UK an apology for the fudge that has become a farce?

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I can trace the alienation the right hon. Gentleman mentioned in response to my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh East (Tommy Sheppard) back to the point when this House refused to give EU nationals the vote in this referendum. We gave them the vote for the independence referendum in Scotland. Does the right hon. Gentleman regret that decision by the Government?

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I am very grateful to the other Stuart McDonald for giving way. I am not suggesting for a minute that this is Scottish National party policy, but something that has been on my mind for a number of years is that, given that we know the economic benefits of immigration, why do we not shift responsibility for it away from the Home Office to the Treasury? Would that not change the terms of the debate?

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Does that put to bed the lie that the Government have a long-term economic plan?

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Stewart McDonald: The hon. Member for Colchester (Will Quince) tweeted that the Home Secretary is at a food-tasting event somewhere else in the Palace of Westminster.

Exiting the European Union (5 Sep 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I will let the House into a secret. Back in 2008, when the Secretary of State resigned his seat over civil liberties, I, as a young 22-year-old, sent him an e-mail wishing him all the best in that election, and, despite our differences, I have been an admirer of his since then. I have to say, however, that I was disappointed by the weakness in his statement. My constituents voted to remain by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (15 Sep 2016)

Stewart McDonald: What discussions is the Minister having with Vauxhall concerning its Zafira models that have been catching fire—over 300 of them in the UK alone—and will he agree to meet me and affected drivers later in the year?

Britain-Iran Relations — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Thank you for calling me to speak, Mr Hanson; it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for South Ribble (Seema Kennedy) on securing this debate. She mentioned that she is the first person with Iranian heritage to be elected to the House; I am the first MP from the council estate of Castlemilk, but her heritage is perhaps slightly more exotic...

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts (11 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Similarly, I rise to present a petition on behalf of the constituents of the Glasgow South borough constituency in the same terms as that of the hon. Member for Worsley and Eccles South. The petition of residents of Glasgow South. [P001743]

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Never heard of it!

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I have often thought about the lessons we in the Scottish National party can learn from this referendum and the referendum in Scotland of two years ago. If some hon. Members find themselves in a confusing position, they should think how we feel. We are on both the wining and the losing sides of this referendum, because, of course, we won the argument in Scotland, where we did our campaigning,...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: rose—

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: My hon. Friend talks about how EU nationals might feel about coming here in future. Does she share my concern and that of my constituents that this goes right back to the debates in this House on the European Union Referendum Bill, in which we even froze them out of having a vote on the issue? The message is not good, and they might decide to turn their backs on this new Brexit Britain.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (25 Oct 2016)

Stewart McDonald: The Government gave £5 million in funding for the refurbishment of the Burrell collection in my constituency, with the money coming from cash collected from the LIBOR scandal. Will the Chancellor consider a similar funding scheme for Holmwood house in my constituency, given that it is the bicentenary of the architect’s birth next year and it needs some TLC?

Social Media and Young People's Mental Health (2 Nov 2016)

Stewart McDonald: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Sir Alan. I thank the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) for bringing the debate forward, and I will try to be brief. I want to take part in the debate to tell the story of one of my constituents, Declan Duncan, an incredibly brave young man from Castlemilk in my constituency. His life was made a complete misery by the use of social media, and...
