National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

George Kerevan: ...Olivier played Earl Haig in “Oh! What a Lovely War”. Earl Haig was a crusty Scot, with a deep Scottish accent, which Laurence Olivier definitely did not have, and Hugh Dowding happened to be born in Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway. His father was a teacher at Fettes school in Edinburgh. The unity of these islands in the Spitfire story goes all the way to Hugh Dowding from...

Scottish Parliament: Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal (8 Mar 2017)

Colin Smyth: the volunteers, and I saw at first hand the difference that they made to people living with Parkinson’s. It is the same with Marie Curie’s helper service volunteers, including the 20 in Dumfries and Galloway, some of whom are in the public gallery this evening—I will refrain from speculating whether they had prosecco on the train on the way here. However,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jan 2017)

Angus Robertson: May I begin with a tribute to Father George Thompson, who died shortly before Christmas? He led a remarkable life as a teacher, as a priest and as the Scottish National party Member of Parliament for Galloway. We extend our sympathies to his family. All of us in this House and across these islands care about the peace process and about the democratic institutions in Northern Ireland, so may I...

Commercial Financial Dispute Resolution Platform (15 Dec 2016)

Peter Dowd: The hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless) has summarised most of the things that I would have referred to. I thank the hon. Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan) for bringing the issue before us. I also want to touch on one or two points made by the hon. Member for Wycombe (Mr Baker) about the Austrian school. As he said, the system is not adequate to deal with the task...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (12 Oct 2016)

Chris Bryant: .... I know that you take very seriously your responsibility for protecting the rights of the House. I do not know whether you ever consult Facebook, but if you were to do so, you would find that George Galloway, a former Member of Parliament, still describes himself as a Member of Parliament. Would it not be in the interests of the House to make it absolutely clear to Facebook that he is not...

Scottish Parliament: Local National Health Services (28 Sep 2016)

Colin Smyth: ...already clear. Those campaigners took the time to come to Parliament today to share their stories with us. It is therefore a disgrace that the SNP amendment pretends that those communities and those concerns do not exist. As if in a scene from George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, the cabinet secretary’s Newspeak amendment would airbrush out any reference...

Poverty - Motion to Take Note (14 Jul 2016)

Lord Mawson: ...Wharf. Next door to the school was a run-down health centre with 11,000 patients. I quickly suspected, but could not prove at the time, that some dodgy practice was going on, but they were Asian GPs and the MP, George Galloway, was playing politics in the Bengali housing estate across the road, so it might have been seen as insensitive to suggest that all was not well. A politically...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Referendum (12 Apr 2016)

Wayne David: Does the Minister agree that the only thing that Nigel Farage, George Galloway and Vladimir Putin have in common is that they want Britain to leave the European Union? Does that not say a lot about the consequences of our possible departure from the EU?

Clydebank Blitz Anniversary (15 Mar 2016)

Martin Docherty: Jane Adair, John Adair, William Adair, Mary Adams, Archibald Adamson, Hannah Ahern, Isobel Aird, Marion Aird, Tomina Aird, William Aird, Joseph Allan, Andrew Anderson, Esther Anderson, George Anderson, John Anderson, Thomas Anderson, Ellen Bainbridge, Thomas Bainbridge, John Barclay, Elizabeth Baxter, Annie Beaton, Rosetta Bell, Mary Bennett, Eric Betty, Maria Bicker, Walter Bilsland,...

Scottish Parliament: Childcare Costs (8 Mar 2016)

Aileen Campbell: ...authorities, to ensure that flexibility is there for the families with which it works. Early Years Scotland is developing playgroup solutions and support for the involvement of parents, for example in Dumfries and Galloway. The National Day Nurseries Association has developed forums and partnerships with local authorities across the country, with the result that the majority of local...

Business of the House (25 Feb 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...relevant that we commemorate Æthelbert today, as he was the first king to establish laws in these lands banning blood feuds. I suspect that the out campaign and the Conservative party have need of him. After all, when George Galloway turned up at an out campaign the other day, half the room left; Nigel Farage thinks that Gove, Cummings and Johnson are too clever by half and has sacked...

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

Peter Bone: ...Labour MP, the co-chairman of Conservatives for Britain, four Conservative MPs, and the leader of Respect. In 2014, Ruth Davidson, our excellent Conservative leader in Scotland, linked arms with George Galloway in the national interest. Does the Prime Minister agree that Ruth Davidson was right and that sometimes we have to work with people we do not like?

Armed Forces Bill: Second Reading (11 Feb 2016)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...which will test the system in the extreme. Back in 1994, I was engaged in the defence of a lance-corporal, serving in Germany, on a murder charge. He was acquitted and returned to his regiment. George Galloway, then a Labour Member of Parliament for Glasgow, Hillhead, used parliamentary privilege to assert that a murderer had walked free and was still at large, serving in Her...

Scottish Parliament: Local Newspapers (11 Feb 2016)

Christine Grahame: ...a paper in my constituency, the Midlothian Advertiser. Local papers are all important in keeping my constituents and me informed. There is a range of them in my constituency; unlike my colleague George Adam, I do not just have one. I have the Peeblesshire News, which covers Peebles and Tweeddale west. The Border Telegraph and the Southern Reporter cover the central Borders, including the...

Mobile Telecommunications Network Coverage (Contractual Obligations) (2 Feb 2016)

Alistair Carmichael: ...a house meeting in our flat in the west end of Glasgow in support of the late Roy Jenkins, then MP for Glasgow Hillhead and resisting—unsuccessfully, as it turned out—the challenge of one George Galloway. It was an exciting occasion for all who attended. For me, as something of a political geek, it was exciting because it allowed me to do my bit to support the efforts of a man...

Access to Justice: Wales (15 Dec 2015)

Susan Elan Jones: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I am conscious of something that George Bernard Shaw once said. He apologised for writing a long note because he had not had time to write a short note. I fear I have written rather a long note, but I know you will keep me to delivering a short speech. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris)...

Specialist Neuromuscular Care and Treatments — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (15 Dec 2015)

George Freeman: ...put in place a similarly enlightened commissioning process. The hon. Member for Bridgend (Mrs Moon) raised the broader issues of Parkinson’s and neurological disorders, while the hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless) spoke passionately about his mother’s suffering. Before I came to Parliament, I worked in Scotland and, as he highlighted, in this area, as in...

Scottish Parliament: National Third Sector GIRFEC Project (19 Nov 2015)

Joan McAlpine: ...for today’s debate is very useful. It is clear that third sector organisations have become far more central to designing and delivering policy. In my area, the third sector interface for Dumfries and Galloway now has a shop-front project on Dumfries High Street, which is very accessible and is becoming recognised as central to the delivery of services. As I understand it, that is...

Isil: Wilson Doctrine (19 Oct 2015)

David Davis: their intrusion of privacy. To me, that seemed rather important. Secondly, it is apparent that the ruling means something very specific. It means that the inquiry that was brought by Baroness Jones, George Galloway and the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) is very unlikely to receive an answer because if something is not illegal, they will not be told about it. That...

Backbench Business — [2nd Allotted Day]: Superfast Broadband (12 Oct 2015)

Jo Churchill: ...hon. Friends the Members for Salisbury (John Glen), for Somerton and Frome (David Warburton), for Wells (James Heappey) and for Banbury (Victoria Prentis) and by the hon. Members for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless) and for East Lothian (George Kerevan): whether we are talking about broadband width, rural farmers, the nodule—whatever it happens to be—it affects us all,...
