Women’S Mental Health: Ministry of Justice Spending (3 Oct 2019)

Andrew Slaughter: ...had, and are still 2,500 below the 2010 level. There have been initiatives such as the 10 prisons project, set up by the former Prisons Minister, the right hon. Member for Penrith and The Border (Rory Stewart). Although I am sure it was well intended, I thought it was a bit gimmicky, in the sense that it addressed one or two important aspects—drug use and assaults. It was not entirely...

Offender Management and Treatment - Motion to Take Note (3 Oct 2019)

Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames: ...on prison numbers as well as on rehabilitation, prison conditions and the failure of the probation services. But back then we had David Lidington and then David Gauke as Justice Secretary and Rory Stewart as Prisons Minister, and we know what happened to them. This Prime Minister says he will build more prisons and lock more people up and for longer, pressing for longer sentences and...

Scottish Parliament: Short Sentences (Impact on Female Offenders) (3 Oct 2019)

Humza Yousaf: ...also the approach that was being taken in terms of short sentences by Robert Buckland’s predecessor, David Gauke, and his junior minister at the time—the Minister of State for Prisons—Rory Stewart, who I know was well thought of by some members on the Conservative benches. In his last speech as UK justice secretary, David Gauke stated: “Whether through prison, community sentences...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Rory Stewart: Like my right hon. Friend, I support a Brexit deal; indeed, I voted for it considerably more frequently than him. If this great party stands for anything, it stands for respect for parliamentary sovereignty and the rule of law. I respectfully say that he is tiptoeing on to a dangerous path. He is pitting Brexit against remain, young against old, Scotland against England, and people against...

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

Rory Stewart: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that, rather than being some new-fangled innovative decision, this was a profoundly conservative decision by the Supreme Court, asserting the ancient sovereignty of Parliament, and that fundamentally the principle at stake here is that, of course, neither that Court nor any other court should determine whether Brexit takes place—that decision has...

Scottish Parliament: Criminal Sentencing (18 Sep 2019)

Liam McArthur: ...Expanding our prison estate to accommodate the additional numbers that are required under Liam Kerr’s delusional tough justice strategy would come with the heftiest of price tags. David Gauke and Rory Stewart—both former UK justice ministers and colleagues of Mr Kerr—recognised that and would be appalled at the dog-whistle politics that are being engaged in by the Scottish Tories....

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Howell of Guildford: .... The new folly of my party is to reduce its membership by 21 and exclude two ex-Chancellors, an ex-Deputy Prime Minister and my dear friend Sir Nicholas Soames. I just hope it will pass. I hope Rory Stewart’s view that this will pass is right, and that they are restored to the party. This is again part of the Manichean tone in which matters are presented, when everything is either right...

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

Pauline McNeill: ...people stockpiling medicines and food. The party of Thatcher, Major and Heath is fixated only on the issue of Brexit. As others have said, the Conservative Party will be without Kenneth Clarke, Rory Stewart, Nicholas Soames and all the moderates who we have come to know. Although we may disagree with them, they are, nonetheless, moderates. They have been threatened by their own leader and...

G7 - Statement (3 Sep 2019)

Lord Newby: ...today of Phillip Lee MP to join the Liberal Democrats, the Prime Minister has lost his majority in the Commons. It is clear from statements and interviews given by Philip Hammond, David Gauke, Rory Stewart and Justine Greening, among many others, that he is going to lose the vote later this evening. The usual fate of Prime Ministers is that the longer they stay in power, the more hubristic...

Prosecutions and Sentencing - Question (3 Sep 2019)

Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames: ...evidence, particularly given the more liberal, evidenced-based policies on imprisonment and rehabilitation pursued by David Gauke, David Lidington and even Michael Gove as Justice Secretaries, and Rory Stewart and the present Justice Secretary as Prisons Ministers?

Ebola - Question (25 Jul 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, can I pay tribute to Rory Stewart, who went to Geneva and made the plea, made the pledge and encouraged other Governments to work on this? This disease knows no national boundaries, and it is important that we address the issue globally. The noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, mentioned the need to build community action and public health awareness, and we need to use every method of...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Education (22 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: Every child has a right to a good quality education. DFID’s education policy Get Children Learning makes clear that the state is the guarantor of quality basic education for all, but need not be the sole financer or provider of education services. This is the position we will continue to a) promote to partner countries and b) reinforce publicly. We welcome the focus in the UN Special...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Education (22 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: We welcome the focus in the UN Special Rapporteur’s Report on the importance of the regulation in education systems, which is consistent with DFID’s position set out in the 2018 education policy Get Children Learning. We await with interest the publication of the study referred to in the UN Special Rapporteur’s Report.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Education (22 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: We monitor and track all programmes and programme partners, and remain committed to the transparent publication of aid spending and delivery, through such information platforms as DevTracker. This includes education spending.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Poliomyelitis: Disease Control (22 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: The Global Polio Eradication Initiative has recently launched their new strategy for 2019 – 2023. We are currently considering the strategy and a future UK offer of continued support, as are all global donors.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for International Development: Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak: Update on UK Response (18 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: It is nearly a year since the declaration of the tenth Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This is the second largest Ebola outbreak and the first in a conflict zone. The risks remain very high. And we need – as an international community – to keep a relentless focus on these issues: addressing failings in public health systems, controlling cross-border transmission,...
