Royal Assent: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (26 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

No-Deal EU Exit Preparations (20 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: This has been a classic display of what over-promotion looks like, in front of the entire House this afternoon—[Interruption.] No, I will not “come on”. This stuff from the Minister has been grimly depressing. Can he confirm that my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry) was 100% spot on when she said that if the Council does not grant the...

EU Withdrawal Joint Committee: Oversight (20 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Scrutiny is always welcome, but I have to say that I believe this urgent question is driven less by urgency and more by a desire on behalf of the right hon. Member for Rayleigh and Wickford (Mr Francois) to continue his deeply unattractive and frankly tin pot tyrant-like attacks on civil servants. Will the Minister deprecate those attacks on civil servants? Will he clarify, in terms of the...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: The hon. Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney), whom I disagree with, is a friend of mine. However, it is a bit rich for Labour Members—and I include the hon. Gentleman in this—who have spent two years in a period of Herculean self-flagellation over a people’s vote, to come to the House today as though they are some kind of voice of authority on the matter and seek to lecture those...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Can I take the deputy Prime Minister back to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Na h-Eileanan an Iar (Angus Brendan MacNeil) when he said that it was a matter of law that the UK can revoke article 50 in its entirety? Should there be a member state that does not agree to an extension—for example, Hungary or Italy—would it not therefore be a matter of political reality that...

Business of the House (13 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: This need not be the Schleswig-Holstein question all over again, but it does risk driving us all a bit mad. Now that the House has ruled out no deal, is not the only thing now entirely within the House’s gift—as opposed to relying on members state of the EU—the revocation of article 50?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: The Secretary of State speaks as though there is some distance between him and the tragedy that he has just outlined, but is it not the case that he is a senior author of that tragedy? Does he feel no sense of shame or responsibility? Should he not apologise for the mess that we are facing?

Business of the House (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Following the points made by the hon. Members for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) and for Ilford North (Wes Streeting), the Leader of the House knows, I know and the dogs in the street know that there is no majority in this House to leave the European Union without a deal. That is what is going to happen tomorrow, so even if she cannot give us the full motion, is there is a reason why she cannot at...

Business of the House (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. During our earlier exchange, you asked whether I was indignant or flummoxed. The phrase I would prefer to use is that I am bent out of shape with what has gone on here this evening. My question to the Leader of the House was nothing to do with procedure, which you tried to help me with. My question was whether there is anything to prevent her from telling the...

Stewart McDonald: rose—

Business of the House (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I am most flattered by all of that, but it does not actually answer my question, which was to you this time. Is there anything to prevent the Leader of the House, in advance of the motion being published, from telling us what its contents might be?

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: rose—

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: The hon. Gentleman shouldn’t be like that—I haven’t even said anything yet! Will my right hon. Friend go back slightly and reflect, as I have, on the fact that it is five years this year—last month, in fact—since 100 people were gunned down by the then Yanukovych Government of Ukraine because they wished to join the European Union? He reflects on what people must think across the...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: We often talk, and rightly so, about the impact of the salary threshold, but will my right hon. Friend acknowledge that there is a significant community of people across the UK who have retired to this country from the European Union? As a constituent from Italy said to me at the weekend, if the place gets too expensive, she will just go back to the beach.

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: The right hon. Gentleman adumbrates perfectly the miasma of chaos that is eating away at this place, but does he not agree that, given the chaos that is about to hit the people of Scotland—who voted overwhelmingly to stay in the European Union—should they request an order under section 30 of the Scotland Act 1998 to hold a referendum on Scotland’s independence, it would be undemocratic...

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Will the Prime Minister give way?

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Before the Prime Minister continues with this Britannic hyperbole, can she tell me what changes to the agreement have come about that were sought by the devolved Governments in Scotland and in Wales, or were there none at all?

Electoral Funding: Unincorporated Associations — [Mr Ian Austin in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Stewart McDonald: Will my hon. Friend give way on this point?

Electoral Funding: Unincorporated Associations — [Mr Ian Austin in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Stewart McDonald: I am extremely grateful. Sometimes this stuff is hiding in plain sight. The Electoral Commission figures released earlier today tell us that the Conservative party has received a total of £400,000, with one donation coming from the household of a former Putin Minister eight months after the Salisbury poisoning, which killed a British citizen, and the other one coming from a weapons dealer...
