Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Stewart McDonald: The hon. Gentleman says that my party is never the answer, so can he tell me why it is that when his party and my party are on a ballot paper, his lot get horsed and we keep beating them?

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Can my hon. Friend imagine the howls of indignation from Conservative Members if a scenario were to arise in which the First Minister of Scotland prevented the rest of the United Kingdom from having a referendum on whether to stay in or leave the European Union? Heaven and Earth would be moved by a Government in London to make sure it happened.

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Will the Prime Minister give way?

Stewart McDonald: But would that issue not be resolved by a sitting this Friday?

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: I point out to the Minister that there is no convention to have elections every two years, but we seem to be content to do that. I want to take the Minister back to his important points on the Northern Ireland Budget Bill. We all want to see people get paid—we do not want a Republican-style shutdown of government in Northern Ireland—so will he answer the question I asked? Could we not...

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: I am extremely grateful to the Leader of the Opposition for giving way. May I say to him that, in the upcoming election, the right of the Scottish people to choose their own future will be at the front and centre? If the Scottish National party wins a majority of seats in Scotland, will he respect that result?

Defence: Service Personnel: Recruitment and Retention (21 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: I congratulate the Minister on holding his post, and I welcome the new team to the Government Front Bench. His boss is, of course, a Scot, and he will tell him that Scots do not take kindly to broken promises from Tory Governments. At the Scottish independence referendum we were promised that there would be 12,500 personnel in Scotland by 2020, but at the last count the figure stands south of...

Defence: Topical Questions (21 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Will the Secretary of State commit to publishing his Department’s analysis of leaving the European Union as far as forfeiting our rights and responsibilities under article 42.7 of the Lisbon treaty is concerned?

Prime Minister’s Statement: European Union (Withdrawal) Acts (19 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Because of you.

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: This week, the Government announced an arms embargo as far as Turkey is concerned after its incursions into northern Syria, but all is not quite what it seems. My understanding is that there is an embargo only on new licences where it is believed that the equipment may be used in northern Syria. Given the confusion and lack of detail, will the Leader of the House organise a statement from the...

Speaker’s Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Speaker’s Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree—I think he does—that it is about time that the Ministry of Defence and the Treasury switched to multi-year defence agreements?

Speaker’s Statement: Britain's Place in the World (15 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: It is a pleasure to follow the fine words of the hon. Member for Gillingham and Rainham (Rehman Chishti), who I am sure will do great things in the role he has been given by the Prime Minister. He marked himself out early on with his campaign to use the term “Daesh” as opposed to “ISIL” or “ISIS” at the time when we were both elected, so all the best from me to him for that....

Imprisonment of Catalan Leaders (15 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: When the Minister is at the Dispatch Box, he and I will discuss Ukraine fairly often, and we will more often than not find ourselves in agreement, because we have chosen that what happens there is in our interests. If what is happening in Spain and Catalonia now was what Yanukovych’s Government had been doing to people in Ukraine back in 2014, the Minister would rightly be condemning it,...

Turkish Incursion into Northern Syria (15 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: It is sad to see the urgency of the question be met with such mealy-mouthed languid complacency. All this talk of reviewing potential future arms sales and of not pursuing sanctions—we even have a Defence Secretary apparently offering some legitimacy to the actions of the Turkish Government—means nothing, does it? From where I am sitting, the Government are feart to say boo to a goose,...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (14 Oct 2019)

Stewart McDonald: That’s still ongoing!
