Backbench Business: Colombia — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (15 Jul 2021)

Fabian Hamilton: ..., and that 278 members of FARC have been murdered since the peace accord was signed. That is a startling figure, yet FARC is still committed to the peace accord. The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) made a powerful contribution, which the hon. Member for Stirling (Alyn Smith) mentioned several times. The hon. Member for Glasgow North visited Colombia in 2018, and he...

Scottish Parliament: United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (16 Mar 2021)

Patrick Harvie: ..., at last year’s Scottish Qualifications Authority assessment scandal. It is quite clear that a robust participative assessment of the impact on young people’s rights would have stopped the grading model that was used long before the results were issued. That is exactly the kind of practical application of the UNCRC that will make a real difference in future. I strongly suggest to the...

Business of the House (3 Sep 2020)

Valerie Vaz: ...title will be “The personal role and involvement of the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Education in this summer’s exams fiasco.” I welcome the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady), who is standing in for the hon. Member for Edinburgh East (Tommy Sheppard). One small plea, Mr Speaker, in terms of voting: that we separate the queues. I know that you, too, are...

Scottish Parliament: Motion of No Confidence (13 Aug 2020)

Ross Greer: ...learners, but would be fundamentally unjust to working-class people and those in the most deprived communities in particular. I challenged the education secretary and the SQA in Parliament, as did Patrick Harvie; I lodged freedom of information requests; I wrote to the Equality and Human Rights Commission, once the commissioner’s office became involved; and my team and I published our...

Historic Churches: Covid-19 (16 Jul 2020)

Jim Shannon: ...soldiers from using them. Sir Hugh Montgomery restored the church in 1607 and added a small chapel, but it fell into disrepair in the middle of the 18th century. We also are blessed to host the St Patrick’s trail in memory of the legacy of St Patrick, the British missionary to Ireland, and many of the abbeys that were erected as his legacy exist only as ruins and relics. Members may...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Qualifications Authority (Grading Proposals) (28 May 2020)

Patrick Harvie: 1. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the concerns of the Equality and Human Rights Commission that the SQA’s proposals for grading this year’s qualifications may not be compliant with the Equality Act 2010. (S5O-04340)

Bullying and Harassment of MPS’ Parliamentary Staff (17 Jul 2019)

Patrick Grady: ...the team from the mail room and special advisers sitting next to the cleaning staff. There is no sense of deference and no sense of particular entitlement based on obscure notions of seniority or grading.

Ford in Bridgend - Statement (10 Jun 2019)

Lord Fox: ...up to the end of 2018. Today’s announcement of a drop in GDP of 0.4% in one month is a shocking reminder, but we should not be surprised. We were warned. In fact, the ERG’s favourite economist, Patrick Minford, explained some time ago that a no-deal Brexit would see manufacturers go the same way as the coal industry. That prediction is now being priced into every industrial and...

Scottish Parliament: Teachers (Pay Award) (22 Nov 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: I recognise the strength of feeling that teachers have expressed through their ballots. I am grateful to Patrick Harvie for giving me the opportunity to address the issue. First, for the record, let me recap on the offer that was made. Through a combination of a basic pay award and progression, all teachers on the main grade scale were offered at least a 5 per cent increase, with some...

Scottish Parliament: Teachers’ Pay (25 Oct 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: place a fair pay offer for 2018-19, which would see the Scottish Government contributing an additional £35 million of funding for teachers’ pay. That would result in all teachers on the main grade scale receiving at least a 5 per cent increase, with some receiving up to 11 per cent in one year. I believe that that is a generous and fair offer, and I hope that it will be considered as...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Michael Tomlinson: ...under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell, and to contribute so early in this debate. I too congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan). The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) and my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) were right to say that the number of hon. Members here in this Chamber shows the importance of this subject; I pay full...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Representation on Public Boards (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (30 Nov 2017)

Elaine Smith: ...the decision-making bodies in our society. That, in turn, should send a message to the private sector and to society at large—a point that I raised with the cabinet secretary earlier, and which Patrick Harvie also raised. This is a massively important issue because unless we have fair representation of women in public life and on our boards, we will continue to see policies and practices...

Scottish Parliament: Cyber-resilience (24 May 2017)

John Finnie: ...that. Regardless of where people were, this was a global attack and something that will require international co-operation. Something like the attack was widely expected. I will quote my colleague Patrick Harvie, who has said: “the resilience of systems needs to be thought of more in line with public health than acute care”. That is a health analogy that has some relevance. The...

Scottish Parliament: Carers and Social Care (26 Apr 2017)

James Dornan: though they were less than equal to men. I will go on to talk about gardeners and grave-diggers who work for the council. I completely accept that they do a very difficult job, but they are graded higher than those people, who maybe do some of the most difficult, and certainly some of the most important, jobs in society. Homecare Glasgow became an arm’s-length body a number of years...

DFID’s Programme in Nigeria — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (23 Mar 2017)

James Wharton: .... She asked some specific questions at the end, but also talked in informative and in-depth terms about the Committee’s report and the Government’s response. The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) spoke in his typically witty and engaging way, and said, in a politically carefully worded phrase, that the Government were partially in agreement. I think that is probably fair....

Defence Expenditure — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (27 Oct 2016)

Steven Paterson: ...”. Indeed, page 67 of the “National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review” document of last year identifies the three tiers of domestic and overseas risks we face, grading them as tier 1, 2 or 3 “based on a judgement of the combination of both likelihood and impact.” Taking that at face value, the National Security Council has identified terrorism,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Addressing Bullying in Schools Bill: Second Stage (8 Dec 2015)

Anna Lo: ...them over the weekend whether they recalled those incidents, they had no recollection, but I certainly remember the heartache and anger that they caused us as parents at the time. I recently met Patrick Yu of the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities (NICEM), who outlined to me the council's concerns with the Bill. I will highlight some key points. He said that the definition of...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Iran: Nuclear Issues (24 Nov 2015)

Tobias Ellwood: ...should be approached. In response to one remark, I should make it clear that I have no power over that, but I look forward to further scrutiny of this matter. The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) made an important remark on the links between Glasgow and the current President of Iran. The hon. Gentleman spoke about the importance, as we embark on a new relationship with Iran,...

Speaker’s Statement: High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill (28 Apr 2014)

Patrick McLoughlin: ...proposals strike the right balance. More than half the route is in tunnels or cuttings and more than two thirds of the line’s surface sections will be insulated by cuttings and landscaping. No grade I listed building is affected and only some 100 homes will be demolished in the nearly 100 miles of the rural part of phase 1. The line is designed to be secure against flooding. Indeed, it...

Scottish Parliament: Developing Skills for Scotland’s Digital Economy (3 Apr 2014)

Jenny Marra: ...attractive and exciting to do, as I said in my intervention on the minister. It is remarkable that, when the industry has such potential, the number of young people taking ICT courses to standard grade level in schools fell by more than a quarter in the four years to 2012. There was an associated fall of 17 per cent in the uptake of intermediate 1 courses. I was pleased to hear that the...
