Housing and Access to Legal Aid — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is good to see you in the Chair, Mrs Main. I congratulate the hon. Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Ruth Cadbury) on securing this debate. It is one in a series of debates we have had in Westminster Hall on access to justice and legal aid more generally. That is essential, as we keep pressure on the Government during their internal review of the operation of LASPO. From the outset, the...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: I echo the criticisms of the outrageous immigration exemption in the Bill and am pleased to add my name to amendment 15. Little has been said today about international transfers of personal data by intelligence services, despite the serious concerns raised in Committee. I will therefore speak briefly to new clause 24, which it is all the more important we debate, given the moves by the Trump...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Can the Minister give us a couple of examples to illustrate why these additional powers are necessary, and where the other powers in the Bill—in relation to criminal offences and investigations, for example—would not already suffice to do everything that the Home Office wishes?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Your good wishes, Mr Speaker, and those of other hon. Members have certainly made facing up to middle age that little bit easier today, so thank you very much indeed. I start, as I did in Monday’s debate, by paying tribute to the Windrush generation. They battled against hostility when they arrived, and it is a tragedy that they have to battle against hostility 70 years later. We have...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I, too, thank the petitioner and the signatories for bringing the debate before the House today, the Petitions Committee for scheduling the debate, and the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) for ably introducing it. We have had lots of powerful and thoughtful speeches. The arrival of 492 passengers onboard...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Effect on Scotland (25 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: The Secretary of State’s Government have repeatedly talked the talk about a partnership of equals, so will he explain where on earth is the equity and partnership in proposals that the Westminster Parliament be able to restrict the Scottish Parliament’s powers for up to seven years without its consent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Suicide in Prisons (24 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Ninety-three women have died in prisons in England and Wales since the 2007 Corston report. When the new female offender strategy is published, will it focus on community alternatives to prison, especially for the 70% of women who are sentenced to six months or less?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Despite this horrendous heatwave, I am still looking forward to joining 17 colleagues on both sides of the House in trying to complete the marathon on Sunday. I will be raising money for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland. On that note, may we have a debate in Government time on why they continue to resist calls from the Food Standards Agency, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Aviation Industry (19 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: A key requirement in any deal with the US may well be that UK airlines are required to be UK majority owned, yet very few would be able to meet that standard. What are the realistic chances of the US ditching that long-standing policy for the sake of the UK?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Will the Minister tell us what recent research the Department has undertaken on whether shared space schemes without kerbs or controlled crossings are safe for people with vision impairments?

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Given what the Prime Minister said about the careful targeting of the strikes, will she tell us what sites involved in the manufacture and stockpiling of chemical weapons had to be ruled out from the scope of the strikes due to their location and proximity to civilians, what the risk of those sites continues to be and what the anticipated consequences of any future attack on them might be?

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Is not the key point in all this that the pernicious and “hostile environment” has an impact on everybody, whether they are here legally or otherwise? People can hardly get out of bed these days without somebody asking to see their passport. Is it not time to scrap the “hostile environment”?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: When will the Home Office fix the disastrous mess that is being caused by the tier 2 work visa cap being exceeded for four months on the trot? Is it not time to scrap the cap?

Leaving the EU: Justice System — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. I pay tribute to the Select Committee and its Chair, the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill), for their concise, clear and balanced report on how Brexit could impact on criminal and civil justice and the legal industry. I feel like an interloper at a Justice Committee club meeting today, so I shall start by trying...

Leaving the EU: Justice System — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: As I said, I am very relaxed about European Court of Justice jurisdiction generally, but the hon. Lady and the Committee report make a case, specifically with regard to matters of procedure or even jurisdiction, for there being no reason for the Government to be overly concerned with the role of the Court at all. The Chair of the Select Committee, the hon. Member for Bromley and...

Leaving the EU: Justice System — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: That is a very fair point, and I look forward to hearing what the Minister has to say in that regard. What are the contingency plans if it becomes apparent very soon that we will not be able to secure all these arrangements within the current proposed timeframe? Finally, although justice is a devolved matter and Scotland has its own distinct legal system, it will be UK Ministers doing the...

Infected Blood Inquiry (29 Mar 2018)

Stuart McDonald: I congratulate the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) on securing this urgent question and on her persistence in standing up for the victims of this scandal. I also warmly welcome what the Minister has said today. Getting the answers that the victims of this scandal deserve requires asking the right questions and making sure that the inquiry has the right remit, and it...
