Scott Mann: The proposed ban on the use of electric shock collars controlled by hand-held devices was developed after considering a broad range of factors, including the impact of a ban.

Scottish Parliament: Mesh Treatment Clarity (29 Sep 2022)

Jackson Carlaw: Next year will be the 10th anniversary of the petition first coming to the Parliament. It identified what has emerged as one of the great health scandals of our time—transvaginal mesh. I want to continue to approach the issue in as bipartisan a way as possible, paying tribute to Alex Neil, Jeane Freeman and, indeed, Humza Yousaf, who have all made quantitative and qualitative steps forward...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: France: Nuclear Weapons (28 Sep 2022)

Ben Wallace: ...and dismantling costs will be shared equitably between the UK and France. I am therefore withholding the original and current costs as their release would, or would be likely to, prejudice relations between the United Kingdom and other States and constitute a breach of confidence. I am happy to offer you a classified briefing on the project.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Recovery (Budget) (28 Sep 2022)

John Swinney: I agree unreservedly with John Mason’s analysis of the current situation and his characterisation of the United Kingdom Government’s behaviour as “crazy”. In its fiscal event on Friday, the United Kingdom Government announced measures that have recklessly undermined confidence in the public finances and the economy, and it did absolutely nothing to alleviate the suffering of...

Scottish Parliament: Impact of Pressures on Business (28 Sep 2022)

John Swinney: There are three points to make in that regard. First, one of the consequences of the chancellor’s recklessness on Friday is the risk of very significant reductions in public expenditure to try to restore market confidence. That would be a disaster for Scotland. Secondly, the cost of remaining part of the United Kingdom is now acute for people in Scotland, when we see the damage of Brexit...

NPF4 will signal a turning point for planning, and we have been clear that responding to the global climate emergency and the nature crisis will be...

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (28 Sep 2022)

Jenni Minto: I am sorry, but I would like to continue. On Mr Bibby’s point, I am not sure that commercial vehicles would fit on a cruise liner. That is why we need local knowledge. I welcome the minister’s statement that she has instructed Angus Campbell from the ferries community board to visit, take forward the next steps and engage with communities. Those engagements must be open and honest. Trust...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Times (28 Sep 2022)

Kevin Stewart: We have heard a lot today about pressures in the system, the impact on people who access health and care services and what we are doing to support improvements for winter and for the future. As the health secretary said, none of this is easy, especially in times of financial austerity. However, we are confident that we are providing as much support as we can within our control. In Scotland,...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Cycle Training: Cycle Training (28 Sep 2022)

Sadiq Khan: Cycle training plays an important role in enabling adults and children in London to cycle safely and confidently. Cycle training is delivered by the London boroughs who manage their own contracts with cycle training providers. Historically, boroughs funded cycle training from their Local Implementation Plan (LIPs) budgets and other borough budgets. LIPs budgets were issued annually to each...

Scottish Parliament: Fiscal Statement (Response) (27 Sep 2022)

John Swinney: ...and heating their homes. The United Kingdom Government needed to use its reserved powers to provide support for those who need it most. Instead, we got tax cuts for the rich and not much for anyone else. The chancellor is taking a huge gamble with public finances and the health of our economy, and the markets have reacted strongly. The pound fell to record lows on Monday, the cost of...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Population (27 Sep 2022)

Beatrice Wishart: Scottish Liberal Democrats recognise the challenge of population decline and agree with the principle that immigration is a good thing that can provide benefits across Scotland. It can be a means of bringing in new workers and people to jobs and areas with populations that are currently in decline. My MP colleague Alistair Carmichael has been campaigning for changes to immigration visas for...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Tigray: Politics and Government (26 Sep 2022)

Gillian Keegan: The breakdown of the truce and return to conflict between the Tigray People's Liberation Front and the Ethiopian Government is catastrophic for the people of Ethiopia. It risks tens of thousands of deaths, both directly through fighting and indirectly through a further deepening of the already dire humanitarian situation. 22 months since fighting began, it is clear that there is no military...

Prayers - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : The Growth Plan (23 Sep 2022)

Rachel Reeves: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I welcome the right hon. Gentleman to his place. I thank the Chancellor for his comprehensive demolition of the record of the last 12 years—their record; their failure; their vicious circle of stagnation. The Chancellor has confirmed that the costs of the energy price cap will be funded by borrowing, leaving the eye-watering windfall profits of the energy giants...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Pensioners: Poverty (23 Sep 2022)

Alex Burghart: It is not possible to produce a robust estimate of the number of pensioners who will be living in poverty during the winter 2022/23. Projecting poverty involves projecting forward the impact of the cost of living on every household’s income which is not possible to do with confidence. The Government is committed to action that helps to alleviate levels of pensioner poverty. In 2020/21...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: High Speed 2 Line: Water Abstraction (23 Sep 2022)

Lord Benyon: In England, water companies have a duty to carry out assessments to identify any risks to the water supply from source to tap, which includes any large-scale construction work in the area.

Worcester Warriors Rugby Club (22 Sep 2022)

Robin Walker: It is a great honour to secure this debate, on an issue that is very dear to my heart. In recent weeks, Warriors fans have grown accustomed to the odd delay, and I apologise to all those who may have tuned in at 5 pm or 5.30 pm, but I hope I am able to evoke their concerns during the course of the debate. I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend the Member for Pudsey (Stuart Andrew) for...
