Scottish Parliament: Snaring (18 May 2017)

Jamie Greene: ...fall into snares. He is right to note that and those cases sadden me. We should work to minimise those instances by ensuring that there is strict compliance with existing regulations and that suitable recourse is available to deal with those who break the rules. We should play our part in reducing the impact on non-target animals, but an outright ban could be damaging to Scotland’s...

Scottish Parliament: Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (18 May 2017)

Gordon Lindhurst: .... My colleague Alex Cole-Hamilton, who is here with his trademark brown leather shoes, which coalesce with his suave blue suit, referred to the need for more coalescence. I echo that. I thought that Jamie Greene painted a vivid picture of the emotional drain of being out of work. As he said, for younger people, a wider variety of skills can help, but for people of older years, who have...

Scottish Parliament: Disabled People (16 May 2017)

Jeane Freeman: ...of Northern Ireland, Scotland has the largest employability gap in the UK between disabled and non-disabled people, and we know that that is unacceptable.

We will reduce the employment gap by half; we will work with disabled people’s organisations and the public sector to set a target that will increase the...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping Children Safe Online (11 May 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: ...for mass deployment to all—what I am holding up at the moment is a paper copy of an Estonian e-resident card; I have not spent €100 on one—but in the post-Brexit world, many UK citizens are looking at becoming Estonian e-residents, because of the advantages that it gives. Jamie Greene did not refer to this directly, but the system gives people the ability to...

Scottish Parliament: Railway Policing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (9 May 2017)

Douglas Ross: ...policing in Scotland. Why are we faced with such a model? The reason is to do with political ideology, the SNP’s single-mindedness and its obsession with cutting ties with anything that includes the word “British”. That is its modus operandi. It goes full steam ahead and deals with the consequences later. However, this time, even some SNP supporters have concerns about...

Scottish Parliament: Crofting Law Reform (2 May 2017)

Jamie Greene: ...a Parliament, we have choices ahead relating to consolidation, simplification, modernisation, a new bill and a clean slate. I will not suggest today which of those options is the best course of action: greater minds will deal with that. The point that I want to make is that clear policy and strategy—not legislation—must come first. The debate should be about shaping the future...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Universities: Mental Health Services (27 Apr 2017)

Jo Johnson: ...students to offer that support and each institution is best placed to identify the needs of their particular student body and develop the services needed to support it.

Scottish Parliament: Ayrshire Growth Deal (27 Apr 2017)

Brian Whittle: Jamie Greene, John Scott and I recently met Greg Clark, the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. We also arranged a positive meeting between the secretary of state and the Ayrshire growth deal team to establish how the deal fits in with the new industrial strategy framework. As the cabinet secretary knows, the timeline starts with aligning local government and...

Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ...to ensure that operators adhere to procedures that enable easy and quick switching, thereby compelling operators to improve the level of their service. Thirdly, the Government intended to look into bill capping in the consumer rights Green Paper, and it is already offered by some providers. Although we cannot accept Lords amendment 2, we can see the benefits for consumers of being offered...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (26 Apr 2017)

Theresa May: My hon. Friend is absolutely right on this issue. I know that she has been a strong campaigner and a strong champion for her constituents in Cheadle. I can assure her that we are very clear that the green belt must be protected. What we have set out in the White Paper is that boundaries should be altered only when local authorities have fully examined all other reasonable options, such as...

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

Donald Cameron: ..., because of their love for and commitment to the person for whom they care. It is right that we dedicate a parliamentary debate to carers and the role that they play, so I commend the Scottish Green Party for doing so. Although our amendment takes a different tack to the Green Party motion, there is much on which we can agree. This type of debate may be technical at times, but our actions...

Steel Industry - Question for Short Debate (25 Apr 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...at the time. He spoke with great passion about Ebbw Vale. I did not agree with many of the words of the noble Lord, Lord Bilimoria. I did not recognise his characterisation of our industrial strategy Green Paper; I did not see where he was coming from. We are absolutely committed to a strong and competitive manufacturing sector in this country. I reassure the noble Lord, Lord Stoneham,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Child Arrangement Orders (25 Apr 2017)

Oliver Heald: It is right that there should be a clear system to establish the facts about a breach, and it should then be possible to deal with the breach effectively. Of course I am unable to make any announcement today but, as I have indicated to my hon. Friend, a Green Paper on family justice has been announced for later in the year, and she and I have already had the opportunity to discuss some of her...

Scottish Parliament: Child Tax Credit Cuts (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Constance: ...clause and the two-child policy, they will think that there is no stopping them. In this Parliament, we feel differently. The rage and the passion at the injustice that is felt by the members on the SNP, Labour, Green and Liberal Democrat benches are palpable. In short, the two-child cap on tax credits—and, we should not forget, on universal credit—and the rape clause are...

Scottish Parliament: Air Departure Tax (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Apr 2017)

Derek Mackay: ...switch-off of APD next April. I have listened to what the other political parties have said about their positions. The bill is about successful transfer of a power; it is about devolution and delivering on the deal that was achieved. That is why I think that the Liberals would be wrong to oppose the bill, at this stage. We must embark on the decision making in a timely fashion in order to...

Scottish Parliament: Earth Hour 2017 (25 Apr 2017)

Roseanna Cunningham: ...growth. Of course, as a number of members have also said, we can never pause. We have to keep moving on this one. The 2015 Paris agreement has seen 195 countries adopting the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. Despite the slightly depressing news that occasionally emanates from the White House in this particular policy area, it is worth remembering that there are...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Apr 2017)

Jeffrey M. Donaldson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. On this issue, our two parties are at one, and we spoke with one voice in the working groups dealing with the armed forces covenant, because we believe passionately that this issue must be addressed in the context of Stormont’s responsibilities towards a large group in our community—and I mean our community in its totality, because...

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates: Tackling Infectious Diseases (20 Apr 2017)

James Wharton: ...constituency but in terms of the topics he has pursued. He has been a great help to me in my role, as I try to take forward the portfolio for which I am responsible in DFID. He is a global leader in this area; he knows a great deal about that about which he speaks, and it is always a pleasure to listen to him. Similarly, the sterling work of my hon. Friend the Member for...

Scottish Parliament: United States (Visit) (20 Apr 2017)

Maree Todd: I was particularly pleased to see that climate action was high on the agenda, with the First Minister signing a climate deal with the Governor of California. In the Highlands and Islands and throughout Scotland, renewables are transforming communities, creating employment and helping us meet our climate targets. While the Tories at Westminster trash subsidies for green energy, how can we...
