Social Distancing: 2 Metre Rule (15 Jun 2020)

Richard Thomson: Given that the evidence shows that the risks from transmission increase between two to tenfold with reductions from 2 metres to 1 metre, would the Minister agree that comparisons internationally over distance can be misleading while infection rates in the UK remain higher? Can he assure the House that in considering the risks involved in any such reduction, commercial and political interests...

Joint Committee on the Draft Online Safety Bill (16 Dec 2021)

Richard Thomson: I add my own party’s grateful thanks to the Committee for the diligent and thorough way in which it has gone about compiling the report, and we hope to see that feed through into the legislation that eventually comes forward. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, with the enhanced role that is envisaged for Ofcom, it is all the more important that, whoever heads Ofcom, the regulator can act...

Bill Presented: Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons (Scotland) (29 Mar 1972)

Dr. J. Dickson Mabon, supported by Mr. Alfred Morris, Mr. George Thomson, Mr. Neil Carmichael, Mr. Ronald King Murray, Mr. John Smith, Mr. Frank McElhone, Mr. Tam Dalyell, Dr. Miller, Mr. James Hamilton, and Mr. Richard Buchanan presented a Bill to extend Sections 1 and 2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 to Scotland: And the same was read the first time; to be read a...

Treasury: Topical Questions (2 Nov 2021)

Richard Thomson: In reforming domestic air passenger duty, the Chancellor could have done something really clever; he could have incentivised the use of low-carbon forms of transport domestically, and in areas where those do not exist, mitigated the impact with a best alternative. Instead, he has done something that is making travel relatively more expensive for those low-carbon alternatives. How on earth, in...

Official Development Assistance (26 Nov 2020)

Richard Thomson: Over the past few weeks, the UK Government have threatened to break international law, and are now retreating from pledges given both domestically and internationally to support some of the world’s most vulnerable people at a time of unprecedented global crisis. I wonder whether the Foreign Secretary can really be content with the way his Government’s policy is undermining the UK’s...

Energy White Paper (14 Dec 2020)

Richard Thomson: It is absolutely crucial that we achieve transition to net zero, and that that transition is just. There can be no just transition to net zero without the skills and expertise in human capital in the North sea oil and gas industry. An essential component of that will be securing a sector deal between Government and the industry. Can the Secretary of State tell us when he expects to be able to...

Integrated Review: Defence Command Paper (22 Mar 2021)

Richard Thomson: I am anxious to allow the Secretary of State a chance to expand on that. What exactly is the new threat, or the change to the strategic environment, that the Government consider requires a stockpile of 260 warheads, rather than 180, to offer that minimum credible deterrent that was presumably offered before? Furthermore, how can that 45% increase in the number of warheads be reconciled in any...

Northern Ireland: Legacy Issues (21 Jul 2021)

Richard Thomson: Northern Ireland’s largest cross-community victims group, WAVE, wrote to the Prime Minister opposing any de facto amnesty. Does the Secretary of State recognise that reconciliation is something for individuals and communities to achieve, rather than for the Government to try to impose, and that whatever mechanisms the Secretary of State is successful in bringing forward to promote truth and...

Covid-19 Update (23 Jun 2020)

Richard Thomson: The Prime Minister has highlighted examples around the world where restrictions have been relaxed and where there has been a subsequent resurgence of the virus, and he has said that he will not hesitate to reintroduce restrictions if required. I would just like to get an unambiguous commitment from him about not seeing anyone penalised for doing the right thing to combat this virus. If it was...

Scotland: Oil and Gas Sector (15 Dec 2021)

Richard Thomson: Is the Secretary of State aware of the evidence given to the Scottish Parliament’s Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee by Professor Stuart Haszeldine, who said that there was no advantage to the Acorn project having been given reserve bidder status, as that merely means “a lot of meetings”, and requires companies to “run on the spot with very little or no funding”? Is the...

Covid-19: R Rate and Lockdown Measures (8 Jun 2020)

Richard Thomson: We know that the Secretary of State does not want to see the R rate rise above 1—none of us does—but the high-profile recent mixed messages that have come from his Government might well lead to that happening anyway. In those circumstances, is he prepared, if necessary, to reintroduce restrictions on movement and activity, and will he do whatever it takes to persuade the Chancellor to...

Conduct of the Right Hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (30 Nov 2021)

Richard Thomson: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention, and she says it very eloquently and succinctly. We have a crisis of confidence in this country. We have a crisis of confidence in the Prime Minister, who is clearly not fit for the job with which he has been entrusted. This is being aided and abetted by the silence and complicity of far too many Conservative Members, and I cannot wait to see which...

Finance Bill: New Clause 28 - Review of impact of Act on the environment (1 Jul 2020)

Richard Thomson: As another Member of Parliament who is very proud to represent a part of the great city of Aberdeen, I very much appreciate the speech my hon. Friend is making. There is no route to net zero without investing in the oil and gas industry for things like carbon capture and storage. Does he share my concern that there is as yet no apparent sign of any sector deal, which might harness the skills...

UK-EU Negotiations (16 Jun 2020)

Richard Thomson: The Prime Minister once famously observed that “there are no disasters, only opportunities”— and indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters. While it is hard to negotiate any deal worse than no deal, it is clearly not beyond the modest abilities of even this Government to do exactly that, so why not limit the opportunity for fresh disasters by seeking an extension and taking as long as...

Bills Presented: Asylum Seekers (Permission to Work) (5 Feb 2020)

...Reading ( Standing Order No. 57) Patrick Grady, on behalf of Carol Monaghan, supported by Martin Docherty-Hughes, Kenny MacAskill, Alyn Smith, Patricia Gibson, Anne McLaughlin, Angela Crawley, Richard Thomson, Alan Brown, Kirsten Oswald, Dr Philippa Whitford and Patrick Grady, presented a Bill to make provision for granting permission to work to asylum seekers who have waited six months...

Downing Street Garden Event (11 Jan 2022)

Richard Thomson: I think that if someone was hosting a gathering in my back garden, I, like most people, would probably notice at some stage. I am also fairly sure I would remember whether I was there. Does the Paymaster General agree that the failure of the Prime Minister to confirm whether he knew about this gathering, or whether he was there, is the reason why his authority is draining away even faster...

Excluding these words

You can also do this from the main search box by putting a minus sign before words you don’t want: like hunting -fox

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.
