Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (26 Jun 2019)

Liam Kerr: of the public and, in particular, as Scottish Women’s Aid has said, with the safety of victims of domestic abuse. I worry that victims and the public have, as we have heard from victims groups, little faith in community sentencing, and I am certain that there are better, safer and more considered ways to achieve what Parliament desires. Therefore, I urge the Parliament to vote...

Scottish Parliament: Management of Offenders (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Jun 2019)

Humza Yousaf: ...a clarificatory amendment to put beyond doubt that references to disposals in part 1 are not confined to the final disposals in a case. I invite members to support the amendments in my name in the group, and to reject the amendments from Liam Kerr, which would reinstate the word “offender” in direct contradiction of the decision of the Justice Committee at stage 2. To be clear, using...

Scottish Parliament: Tourism Businesses (North-east) (18 Jun 2019)

Liam Kerr: Recently, Charles Skene, the founder of the Skene Group and a key individual in the industry, warned of the devastating impact that the Scottish National Party’s approach to business rates is having on his and other hospitality businesses in the north-east. Has the Scottish Government considered the effect of such policies on the north-east’s tourism economy? If so, what does it propose...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Events (Equality of Access) (13 Jun 2019)

Liam McArthur: It is important to point out that cross-party groups have access to Parliament facilities such as rooms and the IT equipment in those rooms, but it would be a step beyond what is reasonable to provide parliamentary staffing to support CPGs. That has never been provided and the Parliament has never met the costs of running CPGs, which sit distinct from member-sponsored events. The technology...

Scottish Parliament: Orkney Native Wildlife Project (Impact on Agriculture) (6 Jun 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...programme receiving funding and the goose management programme having its funding withdrawn, so it would be helpful if the minister were able to discuss with us how the work of the goose management group could now be supported and whether funding could be made available.

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Target, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (6 Jun 2019)

Alex Rowley: We will support every amendment in the group, including Andy Wightman’s amendment 60A for the reasons that he and Liam McArthur have set out. Amendment 96 agreed to. Amendments 48 to 57 and 59 moved—[Kevin Stewart]—and agreed to. Amendment 97 moved—[Alex Rowley]—and agreed to.

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

James Kelly: The suggestion from Liam Kerr in his proposal for a member’s bill and from the Tories in their motion today is that we change the law in order to introduce whole-life sentences. It is clear to me, having listened to the speeches from across the chamber, that everyone agrees that anyone who has committed a serious crime and continues to be a threat to public safety should be retained in...

Scottish Parliament: Dementia (Alzheimer Scotland Report) (4 Jun 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...importantly, their family and their carers get a tremendous amount out of the hub experience. Dementia friendly Orkney runs a variety of events, including the dementia cafe and its famous singing group. As I know to my cost, the group is great fun, with the emphasis being on companionship. It has a song sheet that is a veritable back catalogue of numbers that participants cannot help but...

Scottish Parliament: Menopause (21 May 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...not available to give information in an accessible way or to spend time with them to discuss any reproductive health concerns that affected them. The main recommendations to emerge from the focus groups that took place highlighted how essential it is to ensure that a learning disability or specialist nurse is available to speak to women about the menopause. The lack of resources was also...

Scottish Parliament: International Museum Day 2019 (21 May 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: ...It is clear from the signatories to the motion and the contributions to the debate that there is cross-party support for the sector. Last week’s international museum day event in the Scottish Parliament was hosted by Museums Galleries Scotland and kindly sponsored, again, by Colin Beattie. The event saw representatives from more than 50 museums come together to celebrate the museums...

Definition of Islamophobia (16 May 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...of State that it is here, in this report. We went into this with absolutely no fixed views whatsoever—none at all. Month after month, we took evidence from individual Muslims and community groups that represent real British Muslims with real-life experiences. We also broadened the process out to politicians. For example, the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) was...

Scottish Parliament: Temporary Release (16 May 2019)

Ash Denham: I thank Liam Kerr for raising the issue. I believe that the letter that he refers to came this week—I think that it was dated 15 May. Obviously, the cabinet secretary will respond to that letter in a timely fashion when he returns from his paternity leave. On the asks that were set out in the Michelle’s law campaign, the Government is undertaking a range of actions to improve support for...

Brexit: Movement of People in the Cultural Sector (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Lipsey: the noble Lord, Lord Black, I come at this topic from a music background. As he kindly mentioned, I was chair of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance; I co-chair the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Classical Music here in Parliament; and I serve under the noble Lord, Lord Burns, on the Mid Wales Music Trust, which supports music there. I have done some in-depth research...

British Sign Language Users: Access to NHS Services — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (15 May 2019)

Catherine McKinnell: ..., and the likelihood that they are, therefore, being treated without informed consent. Those communication issues clearly become more frightening in an emergency situation. Last year, deaf blogger Liam O’Dell highlighted concerning findings from freedom of information requests he had made to hospital and ambulance trusts about the BSL interpretation services they provide—or, rather,...

Health (14 May 2019)

Ivan Lewis:, but he is far more than that. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Leicester South (Jonathan Ashworth) for the tremendous work that he and the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) have done on behalf of the children of alcoholics—they are making a tremendous difference. I will focus on the impact of cuts to mental health services. At a time when there is a...

Scottish Parliament: Vulnerable Witnesses (Criminal Evidence) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (9 May 2019)

The Deputy Presiding Officer: Group 2 is on a report on the operation of sections 1 and 5. Amendment 1, in the name of Liam Kerr, is the only amendment in the group.

Scottish Parliament: Air Departure Tax (8 May 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...cut to the airline industry. Who knew? Massive economic benefits and little environmental impact was too good to be true, surely. Clearly, even SNP Ministers thought so, as an independent expert group was then consulted. Sadly, that group comprised 15 airline and airport representatives and one, lone environmental voice. SNP Ministers seemed determined to load the dice. By contrast, when...

Scottish Parliament: Age of Criminal Responsibility (Scotland) Bill (7 May 2019)

Liam Kerr: ...higher. As the Equalities and Human Rights Committee noted in its stage 1 report, Police Scotland said: “the nature of children’s actions and the prevalence of that behaviour changes as the age group increases to 12 and above.” I also find it persuasive that, as Margaret Mitchell flagged up at stage 1, the number of incidents that are reported to involve under-12s offending is small...

Online Harms White Paper - Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Anderson of Ipswich: .... The risk that free speech will be chilled by overregulation is real and acute. However, underregulation too can inhibit freedom of speech, in particular, the freedom of the women and minority groups who, in Parliament—and, I suspect, elsewhere—attract a disproportionate amount of online abuse. It was saddening, even shocking, to read in the White Paper that 67% of women in the UK...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (4 Apr 2019)

Liam Kerr: Mr Lyle seems to be reluctant to accept my invitation, so I will not push the point. It is clear from this afternoon’s debate, the committee’s report and the many submissions that groups have sent to members in advance of the debate, that the bill is laudable. It includes many good principles, including a focus on the environment and support for bus services, which is not an issue that I...
