Scottish Parliament: Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Bill (30 Jun 2005)

Stewart Stevenson: This is not the end and it is not the beginning of the end, but it might just be the end of the beginning in eliminating the evil trade of the tobacco barons. People who are called Stewart obviously have a particular view on the subject of tobacco. My colleague Stewart Maxwell is, in comparison with me, a moderate on the issue. I commend him for bringing the issue into play through his...

Afghanistan: Provincial Reconstruction Teams (11 Jul 2007)

the Earl of Sandwich: up their own traditions and independence. Most Labour supporters believed that we came to Afghanistan to bring aid and governance, not troops, and they will sympathise with the remarks of Rory Stewart in the Independent, when he said that, "we need to focus on areas... of the country where we are welcome, where people want us to work with them". I look forward very much to the...

Iraq (24 Jan 2008)

Baroness Park of Monmouth: My Lords, we owe a great debt to my noble friend Lord Fowler for this important debate. As Rory Stewart has said, nowhere in 30 years has there been such a concentration of foreign money, manpower and determination as in Iraq. Nor has their failure, to some extent, been more dramatic. He adds: "Our failures were due to incompetence rather than malice, but the population were not prepared to...

Opposition Day — [8th Allotted Day]: Iraq Inquiry (25 Mar 2008)

Crispin Blunt: our standing and start to put it right. As my right hon. Friend the shadow Foreign Secretary made clear, books on the subject are now being published by figures such as Sir Hilary Synnott. Rory Stewart wrote an excellent book on the conduct of the occupation in Iraq, Paul Bremer has burst into print, and so has the former chief of the general staff—everyone is writing their account....

[Mr. Martyn Jones in the Chair] — Reconstructing Afghanistan (10 Jul 2008)

Andrew Mitchell: ...major donors, the United Nations and the World Bank. I also saw the impressive work done by many non-governmental organisations, including Mercy Corps, and Turquoise Mountain, under the guidance of Rory Stewart, who is doing such a good job in Kabul. I met President Karzai as well as senior members of his Government, including the Ministers responsible for education, finance and...

Afghanistan — Question (19 Oct 2009)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. Have the Government considered carefully the published opinions of Rory Stewart, the former British soldier who is an Afghan expert and who is now at Harvard? He has written not just that democratic government is impossible in Afghanistan but that any effective government is impossible there, and that al-Qaeda no longer needs large-scale bases in...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st Day] (18 Nov 2009)

Denis MacShane: ...for the protection of the climate. The right hon. Gentleman is standing down, of course, and obviously I hope that Labour will win that seat-but if we do not, the Conservative candidate, Rory Stewart, will be an interesting addition to the House. I hope that he will maintain the originality that he has shown in his remarkable books and career so far, and does not just become Lobby fodder...

Bills Presented: Education and Health (19 Nov 2009)

Paul Goodman: ...Member for Gravesham (Mr. Holloway), which was published by the Centre for Policy Studies. It follows very much the line of thought developed by a man who I believe will be a future colleague here-Rory Stewart, our excellent candidate in Penrith and the Border-and argues that a new emphasis should be placed on more local decision making in a country where, after all, there is no history of...

Business of the House: Afghanistan (14 Jan 2010)

Denis MacShane: Turquoise Mountain is connected to Rory Stewart, who hopes to enter this House as an hon. Member. However, as I understand it from reading his interesting books and articles, he is rather against the military presence and involvement in Afghanistan. Does the hon. Gentleman think that there will be a rethinking of policy on Afghanistan if Rory Stewart becomes a leading Conservative Member?

Business of the House: Cumbrian Shooting Incident (3 Jun 2010)

Rory Stewart: The hon. Member for Copeland (Mr Reed), with whom I have been in touch, is of course in his constituency, but speaking on behalf of a neighbouring Cumbrian constituency, may I tell my right hon. Friend that we here in the House and elsewhere quite rightly express shock, but that in Cumbria this is something that touches every life? I also thank my right hon. Friend for the steps that she is...

Cumbrian Shootings — [Mr Joe Benton in the Chair] (23 Jun 2010)

Keith Vaz: .... Members, I should say that all the other Members with Cumbrian constituencies who are here today also played their parts in responding to this tragedy- the hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart) and my hon. Friends the Members for Barrow and Furness (John Woodcock) and for Workington (Tony Cunningham). Those constituencies were just names to me until I went to Whitehaven...

Opposition Day — [3rd allotted day]: Jobs and the Unemployed (7 Jul 2010)

George Freeman: ...over the past three years, in the spirit of past parliamentarians, such as most famously, William Cobbett, on horseback, and more latterly my hon.

Friend the Prime Minister-perhaps the only time that they have...

Bills Presented — Fixed-term Parliaments Bill: Clause 2 — Payments under Academy agreements (22 Jul 2010)

Rory Stewart: A man may not make a maiden speech twice. Due to a misunderstanding in Westminster Hall, I appear to have lost my maidenhood, so I apologise to the House. I would like to speak about amendment 71, but very briefly, with your permission, Mr Caton, I would like first to pay tribute to my predecessor, David Maclean of Penrith and The Border, and then bring my remarks back to this important...

Bills Presented — Local Referendums Bill: New Clause 7 — Social cohesion (26 Jul 2010)

I should also like to thank the Minister of State, Department for Education, my hon. Friend the...
