Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: My constituent Denis Omondi is a British citizen. He has uncontested custody of his young daughter Ann, who is in Kenya. Although he visits her as often as he can, she has been denied a visa because the Home Office claims that he has not spent enough time with her. The problem is that Denis is a serving soldier in the British Army. He is stationed at Fort George, and has served tours in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (22 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: What assessment his Department has made of the effect on diplomatic co-operation between the UK and the EU of the UK leaving the EU on 29 March 2019.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (22 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: The Secretary of State says that, but the effects of a lack of co-operation are being felt directly in my constituency. A major European car manufacturer was due to invite 40 international journalists per day to a new Inverness hotel. Now the owner, Tony Storey, tells me that that has been cancelled, costing him £400,000 and priceless exposure for the highlands. What does the Secretary of...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: The Prime Minister will recall that the very first answer she gave at Prime Minister’s questions this year was in response to my question about the EU settlement scheme. I warmly welcome the decision to scrap the pay-to-stay element of that scheme, but may I now ask her to go a step further? Will she end the stress for our EU friends, neighbours and colleagues, save the UK taxpayer money,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Immigration (16 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: What recent discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on the potential effect on Scotland of UK immigration policy after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Immigration (16 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: Following the disgraceful Christmas video aimed at EU nationals and then the Government’s catastrophic defeat last night, will the Secretary of State urge his Government to end the hostile approach to our EU friends, neighbours and colleagues, who are vital to the Scottish economy and Scotland’s communities?

Backbench Business: Long-term Capital for Business (15 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I congratulate the hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) on securing this important debate. I was not aware that he was unwell over Christmas, but I am delighted to see him in the pink of health. It is a rare treat to be in a debate with two Tories and a Democratic Unionist party Member where I have to pick my differences in...

Backbench Business: Long-term Capital for Business (15 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: It will come as no surprise to the hon. Gentleman that I do not agree with that. He has gone from making a sterling point about the English Treasury to saying that independence is somehow a threat. I do not think so; I think it is a marvellous opportunity. As he has raised the issue, I will say that it has been brought into sharp focus in this place over recent months. As Marian Bell of Alpha...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: My right hon. Friend is making a powerful point about people who have come to live and work and be our friends and neighbours in our communities. Does he agree that it is an absolute disgrace that these people, who are so vital to us, are being told they must make an application to pay to stay in their own homes, even though many of them have been here for decades? It is an absolute outrage.

Universal Credit (14 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: rose—

Universal Credit (14 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: You are saving the best for last, Mr Speaker. For nearly six years, from pilot through to full service roll-out, my constituents in Inverness and then in the rest of my constituency have been suffering and reporting the flaws of universal credit to the Government. Now that the mistakes have been admitted to and the flaws have been acknowledged, what will the Minister do to compensate the...

Business of the House (10 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: New research from the Scottish Parliament Information Centre has shown that my constituents in Inverness and Nairn alone are paying £1 million a year more due to unfair delivery surcharges. Can we have a statement on when the Government will finally act to end that scandalous rip-off?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Community Transport (10 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: What steps is he taking to ensure that community transport groups will not require a licence when the Government align sections 19 and 22 permits with EU regulations? The proposals that went out for consultation still carry a risk that small and medium-sized groups will need to pay in the range of £80,000 to £100,000, which would lead to the widespread disruption of those services. Does...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: My hon. Friend is making a fantastic speech. Is the situation not even worse, because these people—our friends and neighbours, our colleagues, people we depend on in our communities and throughout Scotland, have been asked—even when they have been here for decades, to apply to pay to stay in their own homes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 9 January.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: I echo the Prime Minister’s comments on Lord Paddy Ashdown and, of course, on the disgraceful behaviour and threats to politicians and journalists going about their business. Like those in the rest of the UK, 235,000 EU nationals in Scotland were treated to a Christmas removal threat via social media from the UK Home Office telling them to register if they want to stay in the UK after...

Seaborne Freight: Points of Order (8 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. During Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy questions this morning, the hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr), who is no longer in his place but who has been notified that I am making this point of order, asked the Minister what his response was to the conclusion of the report of the BEIS Committee, published last week, which includes myself as a...

Universal Credit: Managed Migration (8 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: Since as far back as 2013, Inverness and then the rest of my constituency suffered through the pilot and on through the full-service roll-out of universal credit. The new year front page of The Inverness Courier newspaper described the rise of poverty in our community, and that was directly attributed to universal credit. Over nearly six years, the UK Government have failed to listen to any...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (8 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: Lang may yer lum reek, Mr Speaker. One way the Government are looking to maintain cross-border supply chains is by Government tender to shipping companies, but is the Secretary of State happy about the precedent set for UK businesses? His colleague the Secretary of State for Transport has awarded a £14 million contract to a company with negative assets of nearly £400,000, no ships and terms...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (8 Jan 2019)

Drew Hendry: The Secretary of State has not answered the question. Will all UK businesses see such largesse from the Government in respect of procurement contracts? One of Seaborne’s directors ran a business that went into liquidation owing HMRC nearly £600,000, using employee benefit trust tax avoidance schemes. According to the director, the Government did not even consider the money owed to Her...
