Business of the House (14 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Scottish Tories.

Business of the House (14 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: When the House rose for the recess, a local shopkeeper in my constituency, Asad Shah, was tragically killed. He was a much loved, gentle and friendly man, and he will be sorely missed by many in the Southside of Glasgow. He was also a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, and the police have identified that there was religious aggravation behind the killing. May we have a debate on the...

European Convention on Human Rights: Uk Membership (26 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Had it not been for the Strasbourg Court, gay men and women in this country would not be serving in our armed forces, but because of the 1999 judgment there has been a rainbow revolution in our armed forces. Is that not just one of the many reasons why we should stick with the ECHR?

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (13 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: rose—

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (13 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Well, it is some scandal, is it not, that has been leaked to us? Criminals, politicians and dictators have been hiding billions and billions of pounds in offshore accounts under the names of companies that do not actually exist. In fact, it is the scale and nature of the scandal that causes me to be so depressed about the nature of the debate we have had both in the Chamber this afternoon and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Drones (Safety Risks) (28 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I hear what the Transport Secretary is saying about his engagement with airports, but this is also an issue for stadiums, railway stations and other places where the public gather in huge numbers. What discussions has he had with the widest possible range of stakeholders, including local authorities, on the use of drones?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Drones (Safety Risks) (28 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I am grateful for that—even if it was not much of an answer, to be entirely honest. The Secretary of State also briefly touched on another very important issue relating to the threat that laser pens pose to airports across the United Kingdom. BALPA has called for all but the lowest-strength laser pens to be banned. What is his response to that?

Business of the House (28 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: The Jewish community has a history with Scotland going back beyond 200 years. I know that Members of this House will want to send a message that we value the Jewish community and the contribution it has made not just in Scotland but across the United Kingdom. With that in mind, and given this week’s events, may we have a debate on the valuable contribution that the Jewish community has made...

Shipbuilding on the Clyde (25 Apr 2016)

Stewart McDonald: As ever at this time of year, there is much reminiscing over the UK’s defeat of Argentina. Given that that took a taskforce of 42 Royal Navy ships, does the Minister really expect us to believe that a fleet of 19 frigates and destroyers is sufficient for a Navy with the strategic ambitions outlined in the 2015 SDSR?

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Is not the reality that this Queen’s Speech was not for viewers in Scotland—so much so that the Scotland Secretary has been nowhere to be seen on the Front Bench? I think that even my predecessor, Sir Teddy Taylor, had more to say about Scotland. Perhaps my right hon. Friend could encourage the Prime Minister to tell us what new plans he has to embolden our national Parliament in Edinburgh.

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Stewart McDonald: He still has.

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

Stewart McDonald: We have been enriched by freedom of movement, we have been made safer by co-operation and we remain relevant in global terms because of our seat in the European Union. All of that and more is, unfortunately, now at risk. With that in mind, will the Prime Minister put some punch into a positive fight to remain in Europe? Would it not be ironic if this Conservative Prime Minister left it to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Type 31 General Purpose Frigate (29 Feb 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Where he expects the Type 31 general purpose frigate to be built.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Type 31 General Purpose Frigate (29 Feb 2016)

Stewart McDonald: Given the expectations raised by the Government following the strategic defence and security review, that answer is most unwelcome. Does the Minister not agree with me—I may be biased as a Glasgow MP—that, given that the finest ships anywhere in the world were built on the Clyde, it would be the perfect location for this building to take place?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East: Press Freedom (24 May 2016)

Stewart McDonald: What recent representations he has made to his counterparts in the middle east on press freedom in that region.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East: Press Freedom (24 May 2016)

Stewart McDonald: It is now four years since the Saudi writer Raif Badawi was arrested. Earlier this month his wife was sentenced to 1,000 lashes for promoting her husband’s cause around the world. Given that it was British engineers who have extracted Saudi oil and built their roads, and given our massive co-operation on matters of defence and foreign policy, are not people around the world and in this...

Backbench Business - Middle Eastbackbench Business (30 Nov 2015)

Stewart McDonald: I, too, begin by thanking the hon. Member for Bracknell (Dr Lee) for securing this debate. One of the first things I was able to do in this House was secure a debate on the case of Raif Badawi, and I know the Minister understands my interest in it. Since then, I have developed something of an insight into how the United Kingdom sees its relations with countries such as Saudi Arabia, which is...

Backbench Business - Middle Eastbackbench Business (30 Nov 2015)

Stewart McDonald: I always listen to the hon. Gentleman with great respect, and he makes an important point. The Vienna talks provide the platform for the United Kingdom to show the leadership that we all want to see. I would have been willing to support military action had the Government met the criteria that I have just outlined, but the reality is that they have not done so. Instead what we have is a...

Business of the House (26 May 2016)

Stewart McDonald: In my constituency, the only international aid agency in Glasgow—Glasgow the Caring City—will close its doors this week because of a decision by a shambolic arm’s length external organisation controlled by the Labour party to hike its rent by 400,000%. May we have a debate on the unaccountability of ALEOs across the UK and on how they treat charities across the UK?

NHS Commissioning (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) (7 Jun 2016)

Stewart McDonald: I do not doubt the Minister’s commitment to this issue, but she has to understand how it looks to the outside world. This is a Government who brought forward legislation to ban poppers, for goodness’ sake, but it looks as though they have got their head in the sand over PrEP. Israel, Kenya, Canada, France and the United States all get it. Why are we so far behind?
