Scottish Parliament: Geese and Stoat Population Management (Orkney) (6 Nov 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...from Douglas Paterson to see first hand the damage that is caused to crops and farmland in the east of Orkney’s Mainland. I acknowledge the work that has been done by SNH and others in the local group, but I extend the invitation, on behalf of Douglas Paterson and the local NFU Scotland, to the cabinet secretary to visit Orkney in the early part of next year to see first hand the damage...

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (6 Nov 2019)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: ...in the northern isles. He told all who would listen that the SNP would bring about fair funding “in the provision of ferries and ferry infrastructure”. Two years later, in 2016, a working group was established to consider how to deliver that promised fair funding—work that should have been done years before. Meanwhile, island representatives worked together, relentlessly pressing...

Health Service Safety Investigations Bill [HL] - Second Reading (29 Oct 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...feeling that their employing organisation will come after them because they have disclosed it. I first became convinced of the need for a systematic approach when the former Chief Medical Officer Liam Donaldson chaired an expert group which produced, in 2000, the report An Organisation with a Memory. This then led to the establishment of the National Patient Safety Agency, and I can tell...

Scottish Parliament: Fireworks (29 Oct 2019)

Liam McArthur: I thank the minister for early sight of her statement. I welcome the establishment of the review group, and commend the appointment of Alasdair Hay as its chair. The minister talked about the prospect of introducing legislation. Can she inform Parliament whether she expects that to happen in the course of this session? In considering new controls, does the minister envisage those being given...

Petition - Single Use Plastics in Schools: Portishead Railway (16 Oct 2019)

Liam Fox: ...itself, from North Somerset more widely, and from the wider region. I am also grateful to my fellow Bristol MPs for being here this evening. I single out and pay tribute to the Portishead Railway Group, whose contribution has been utterly invaluable. When I last raised this issue in an Adjournment debate in this House, in January 2005, I spoke about the increase in population in...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...Douglas Hurd. British foreign policy over the past 45 years has been shaped through European co-operation—above all, through working with our French and German partners, from the creation of the Group of Seven as a forum for concerting European influence in transatlantic relations to the close co-ordination of the three Governments’ positions in the nuclear negotiations with Iran,...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill (10 Oct 2019)

Liam Kerr: ...will get hit with a tax of £500 per year. Mike Rumbles was right to say that it is the SNP’s right to team up and vote it through. However, that is why we lodged amendments to exempt various groups. I find it utterly shameful that not one—not one—SNP member agreed that we should exempt the police from a tax on doing their job, and that not one felt that teachers or, for that matter,...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (9 Oct 2019)

The Presiding Officer: I call Liam Kerr to speak to amendment 24 and the other amendments in the group.

Scottish Parliament: Children (Equal Protection from Assault) (Scotland) Bill (3 Oct 2019)

Maree Todd: ...to speak today for the Scottish Government. I thank John Finnie and his team for all their efforts in progressing the bill. I say to Mr Finnie, who is planning to retire at the end of the parliamentary session, that the Scottish Government is absolutely committed to upholding and promoting the legacy that he leaves in the Scottish legislative landscape in the form of the Children (Equal...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Sep 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...ways of mitigating the impacts where possible, allowing those who are directly affected an opportunity to shape the way in which that change happens, will be essential. The amendments in this group are helpful in that respect, further fleshing out what a just transition should look like. I am particularly pleased to see amendment 8 in Claudia Beamish’s name, as it seeks to break down the...

Scottish Parliament: Criminal Sentencing (18 Sep 2019)

James Kelly: I welcome the opportunity to speak in this Conservative business debate, which has been brought to the chamber by Liam Kerr. I am not closed to the idea of a discussion or debate about the idea of ending automatic early release. However, any change to the policy would need to be evidence based and the result of proper engagement and discussion, and we have not reached that stage yet. I feel...

Scottish Parliament: Credit Unions (17 Sep 2019)

Jeremy Balfour: ...worth in this afternoon. First, as a number of members have said, we need to do some succession planning. There is a danger that credit unions are seen as being for a certain generation—perhaps Liam McArthur falls into that age group—so we need to think about getting people who are younger than that involved, such as the cabinet secretary. [ Laughter .] I am trying to win friends this...

Scottish Parliament: Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 (Post-legislative Scrutiny Reports) (12 Sep 2019)

James Kelly: ...committee’s breadth of work on both the reports. I reiterate what I said at the start: as John Finnie also said, we just do not find enough time to carry out post-legislative scrutiny in the Parliament. It is an important task and, as MSPs, we should reflect on that issue. As others have done, I pay tribute to Daniel Johnson for his time on the Justice Committee. Daniel has gone from...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Stuart McMillan: ...no deal is not an option. However, the powerless Prime Minister has sent a negotiator to Brussels who is not negotiating. The Belgian MEP Philippe Lamberts, who is on the EU’s Brexit steering group and who has also spoken to the Scottish Parliament’s Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee, was pretty clear last night on the Channel 4 News when he was asked the question...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Liam Fox: ...against the deal because they want no deal to be the outcome. Some have voted against it because they want there to be no Brexit at all, and I want to address one or two questions to that latter group, because this is about the political reputation of Parliament. Those who have had a premeditated campaign to try to thwart the Brexit result, hiding behind the arguments that it is just the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Prison Service (Fatal Accident Inquiry Determination) (3 Sep 2019)

Humza Yousaf: The reason why that professionalisation programme has not come to fruition is that the members rejected it in a ballot. I do not think that Liam Kerr would expect us to override the members’ concerns when that was put to ballot. There is still an outstanding question about professionalisation. The SPS is in continued conversation with the Prison Officers Association about...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Cat Smith: ...did not mention an issue that I know he cares passionately about: sodium valproate and the effect it has on pregnancies. I pay tribute to his constituent, Emma Murphy, and my constituent, Janet Williams, who are tireless campaigners on that issue. I know that justice for them is not far away. The hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) spoke about the need for more Changing Places...

Local Housing Allowance and Homelessness — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (24 Jul 2019)

Liam Byrne: ...to turn the tide, particularly Councillor Sharon Thompson, who knows a thing or two about homelessness, Jean Templeton, who is chairing the Mayor’s task force, and the 14 or 15 different outreach groups that make sure that the homeless people in our city are not actually starving on the streets. However, what those people need is a Government who are on their side, and are prepared to...

International Trade: UK-US Trade and Investment (11 Jul 2019)

Liam Fox: Over the past three years, the DIT has laid the groundwork for an ambitious free trade agreement with the US once we have left the EU, including through the UK-US trade and investment working group, which met for the sixth time in London yesterday. This week, I have been in Washington to discuss the progress of these preparations with my American counterparts and make sure we are ready to...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ..., full intellectual property protection for its algorithms and an unrestricted market in which to sell the final products. Accessing such data ethically will obviously create concerns. Indeed, a group of Lords are concerned about this, and I believe further comment may be made on it later in the debate. While the strict GDPR controls cross-border data flows, after Brexit Britain will be...
