Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Jun 2019)

Theresa May: ...organisations first became public, and she and the UK have led the way. I know that the current International Development Secretary, my right hon. Friend the Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart), is looking very closely at the report and at what further action we can take. The action that we as the UK have taken is not just about our interaction with NGOs; we have brought the...

Imprisonment for Public Protection — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Robert Buckland: ...mental health issues in an appropriate setting, which is welcome. The troubling case of Tommy Nicol was properly raised. My predecessor, my right hon. Friend the Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart), met with Donna Mooney, Mr Nicol’s sister, earlier this year. We remain in contact with her at an official and, I very much hope—although I am a new Minister—a ministerial...

Sustainable Development Goals (11 Jun 2019)

Rory Stewart: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Sustainable Development Goals. It is a great privilege to speak on the sustainable development goals, and it is a very unusual one for the International Development Secretary because this afternoon I will be speaking about the UK’s performance at home, not abroad. The global goals apply not just to other people’s countries, but to our own....

Scottish Parliament: NHS Borders (Finances) (6 Jun 2019)

John Swinney: ...to another does not get across the concept of partnership that lies at the heart of the integration of health and social care. She might know that one of the Conservative leadership candidates, Mr Rory Stewart, is looking actively at the failures in integrating health and social care south of the border, and he has reflected on some of the partnership work that has been taken forward in...

International Development: Climate Emergency (6 Jun 2019)

Rory Stewart: There should be no distinction at all between work that we do—

International Development: Trade Promotion (6 Jun 2019)

Rory Stewart: As China and other developing countries have proved so much over the last decades, the real key to unlocking people’s potential and eliminating poverty is, of course, through economic development, and trade is central to that. The great benefit of trade, and of free trade in particular, is that it unlocks the potential not just for consumers and businesses in developing countries but for...

International Development: Small Charities: Funding (6 Jun 2019)

Rory Stewart: In the end, the Department for International Development is of course spending taxpayers’ money. To work out how to spend it in a way that resonates with the British people, we must get much better at focusing on the small charities that British citizens back. The way to do that is to learn, from examples such as the lottery fund, how to provide more support for small charities. We will...

International Development: Topical Questions (6 Jun 2019)

Rory Stewart: There is one big issue at the centre of everything that we do in development, which is climate and the environment. This is a global problem—it is not just a domestic problem—and it needs a global response, which is why the Department for International Development is central to that response. That is why I would like to double the amount that this Department spends on climate and the...

Scottish Parliament: Whole-life Custody Sentences (4 Jun 2019)

Liam McArthur: Even after Liam Kerr’s performance this afternoon, I firmly believe that, when it comes to justice, his instincts are broadly liberal. I see him more in the mould of his colleague, Rory Stewart, than a latter-day Michael Howard; far less a ready-made solution to plugging the Anne Widdicombe-shaped hole in the Tory Party. I say that despite much of the poorly-evidenced nonsense stuck out in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Short Sentences (4 Jun 2019)

Gavin Newlands: Before his promotion—potentially to Prime Minister— the right hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart) said: “We have a lot to learn from Scotland, specifically on community sentences, and indeed we will be looking at what more we can do to emphasise that a custodial sentence in the short term should be a final resort.”—[Official Report, 24 April 2018; Vol. 639, c....

Yemen Peace Process (23 May 2019)

Keith Vaz: ...engagement of his predecessor, but, as he knows, much more needs to be done. I welcome the new Secretary of State for International Development, the right hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart), with whom the all-party group worked during his previous period at the Department. These ministerial changes show that we have two friends of Yemen in key Front-Bench positions, and...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Yemen: Humanitarian Aid (23 May 2019)

Rory Stewart: We are very concerned by the potential funding cliff edge the UN is facing in June. The UN’s 2019 humanitarian appeal for Yemen is the largest in the world at $4.2 billion. The Geneva Pledging Conference in February of this year saw $2.6 billion pledged, approximately 20% of which has been disbursed to date. The UK is actively engaging with other large donors to encourage the rapid...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Yemen: Humanitarian Aid (23 May 2019)

Rory Stewart: On 24 February, the Prime Minister announced that the UK will provide an additional £200 million in response to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen for the next financial year (2019/2020). This was the third largest amount pledged at the UN 2019 Yemen Pledging conference and brings the total UK commitment to Yemen to £770 million since the conflict began in 2015. We are encouraging other...

UK Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 May 2019)

the Bishop of Winchester: ...now a shared crisis and is presenting itself in the clear threat of species extinction and predictions of sea-level rises. I congratulate the new Secretary of State for International Development, Rory Stewart, on his appointment and hope he will consider these points in collaboration with his colleagues in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as they shape our foreign policy in a shifting...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Climate Change (21 May 2019)

Rory Stewart: Action to avert, minimize and address loss and damage associated with climate change is intricately bound up with action on mitigation, adaptation, disaster risk reduction and disaster preparedness and response. We therefore do not see that attempting to define a separate category of finance for loss and damage as useful or practical. Of the £5.8bn on climate finance we have committed to...

Ebola Outbreak: DRC (20 May 2019)

Rory Stewart: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his moving and well-informed response to the statement; it is clearly very well informed by some of the actors on the ground. I will reply specifically to two of his questions. On stepping up co-ordination, an assistant secretary-general of the UN is now operating out of Butembo with a broader co-ordination role for the different UN agencies. We have reached out...
