Legislating for Uk Withdrawal from the EU (30 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: How can trade and security co-operation be maximised if UK courts are interpreting parallel legal provisions in a completely different way from the European Court of Justice? Surely UK courts will have to continue to consider ECJ case law as it develops after Brexit, and not just as it exists at the point of Brexit, as the Secretary of State sought to suggest in his statement.

Business of the House (30 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Two years ago, a 33-year-old constituent, Caroline, was given just two months to live because of an untreatable brain tumour. Her continuing quality of life is attributed by many of those treating her to a reluctant decision to take a daily dose of cannabis oil. May we have a debate in this Chamber about whether it really can be right for those such as Caroline to be criminalised, hindering...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Cabotage (30 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: What assessment he has made of the implications for cabotage of the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Leaving the EU: Cabotage (30 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: The open skies agreement has provided great opportunities for EU-registered airlines, including UK companies such as easyJet that fly largely unrestricted between and within member states, as well as from the EU to the US, but Brexit could change all that. Can the Secretary of State reassure industry and passengers that the UK will remain part of open skies arrangements?

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I wonder, how would the Prime Minister have responded if Donald Tusk had simply said, “Now is not the time”?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: East Africa (Food Security) (29 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Is the Secretary of State aware of reports that the South Sudanese Government are planning to raise the cost of work permits for foreign nationals from $100 to $10,000? What steps can the Department take to ensure access for aid workers, and what success is it having in achieving that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Article 50 (8 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on the process for triggering article 50.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Article 50 (8 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: I join the Secretary of State in welcoming International Women’s Day. At yesterday’s sitting of the Exiting the EU Committee, the Welsh Finance Secretary, Mark Drakeford, voiced concerns about the UK Government using Brexit to grab new powers over such things as farming and fishing, which should without question go directly to Cardiff and Edinburgh under the existing devolution...

Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Oversight by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (7 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: I congratulate everyone involved in the Bill’s progress. It is fair to say that I have come to it very late indeed, largely because my hon. Friend the Member for Motherwell and Wishaw (Marion Fellows) has other parliamentary duties to attend to today. I thank her for her contribution during the Bill’s passage. No one would argue with the Bill’s stated goals, but these...

Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Education relating to relationships and sex (7 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: I wish to speak to the amendments in my name to new clauses 13 and 14. Let me say in passing that new clauses 12 and 11, on universal credit and local housing allowance, both have our full support. On new clause 4, while we sympathise with the sentiment behind it, the method of progression is not the correct one, and we could not give the new clause our support. Let me turn to new clauses 12...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Support (6 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: What steps she is taking to support refugees in the UK and other European countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Support (6 Mar 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Why is it that only a solitary Home Office official in each of Greece and Italy is working on the Dubs and Dublin schemes? According to non-governmental organisations on the ground, the result is that the schemes are barely functioning there at all.

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Like other hon. Members, I genuinely welcome, yet again, all the good work that the Government have done, and continue to do, on resettlement and aid. However, the winding down of the Dubs scheme is a deeply misguided decision. It flies so far in the face of the evidence we have heard that it is a scandalous decision. I therefore warmly congratulate the hon. Member for Wirral South (Alison...

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Stuart McDonald: I want to again raise the issue of money following the placement. The evidence in the briefing from the Local Government Association suggests that the amount of money that follows a child is actually about 50%, so it is not true to say that councils are fully reimbursed for the investment they make.

Unaccompanied Children (Greece and Italy) (23 Feb 2017)

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Business of the House (9 Feb 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Fair Trade Fortnight is just around the corner: can we mark it with a debate on how UK trade policy affects some of the world’s poorest peoples?

Unaccompanied Child Refugees (9 Feb 2017)

Stuart McDonald: Tens of thousands of refugees stranded in Greece, including hundreds of unaccompanied children, are living in appalling conditions and face immense and avoidable suffering. Yet last year the Government took only five Dublin children from the area and none under Dubs. What will the Home Secretary do to proactively seek out those who could benefit from Dublin transfers?

Informal European Council (6 Feb 2017)

Stuart McDonald: At the summit the Prime Minister announced support to allow up to 22,000 people to reunite with family members they have become separated from during their journey. Can she say a little more about what this means in practice and, in particular, whether it includes extra efforts towards reuniting refugees with family members in the United Kingdom?
