NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Alister Jack: Obviously, I do agree with that, and I also agree with Jim Sillars—[Interruption.]

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Alister Jack: I also agree with Jim Sillars that it is ironic that Nicola Sturgeon wants to take powers from the Prime Minister and return them to Mr Junker, but there we are. Let me go back to the point I was making about a deal with the UK Government being detrimental to the planned re-run of a divisive referendum. Despite the best intentions of her Brexit Minister, who I believe wanted to do a deal, the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Alister Jack: On either side of the Irish border, excise duties are different, VAT is different and the currency is different, and we have had a common travel area since 1923. Does my hon. Friend agree that there is no need to have friction with trade if we have a free trade agreement?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Alister Jack: The hon. Gentleman confirms that he and his party want to keep Scotland in the European Union. Can he confirm to me whether he wants to keep Scotland in the common fisheries policy as well?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (6 Jun 2018)

Alister Jack: Does my right hon. Friend think that the Scottish Government ever wanted to do a deal on the withdrawal agreement?

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Alister Jack: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this important debate. Does he agree these that historical allegations cases against veterans, particularly from the troubles in Northern Ireland, and particularly that of Dennis Hutchings, give little confidence to our school and university leavers when they think about a career in the armed services?

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Alister Jack: I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting this very important debate and I thank the all-party group on fair business banking for securing it. There are literally thousands of victims of this banking scandal. They are victims not of banks, but of bankers and their advisers who colluded with them—make no mistake about it. This has not been a golden era for British banking and...

Prison Officers: Working Conditions (2 May 2018)

Alister Jack: My hon. Friend is coming on to changing the pensionable age for prison officers. Recently, I visited HMP Dumfries in my constituency and was most impressed by the prison officers and the standard of their work. They expressed concern about the pensionable age being 68—as they put it, 68 is too late. I agree with them. Not everyone is physically robust at that age and, if they are not, does...

Road Traffic Offenders (Surrender of Driving Licences etc.) (1 May 2018)

Alister Jack: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about the surrender, production or other delivery up of driving licences, or test certificates, in relation to certain offences; to make provision in relation to identifying persons in connection with fixed penalty notices, conditional offers and the payment of fixed penalties under the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988;...

Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments: Patient Transport Volunteer Drivers (23 Apr 2018)

Alister Jack: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that without proper reimbursement for volunteer patient transport drivers, we are at risk of having a deeply unfair postcode lottery in which people in rural and remote areas lack the access to the healthcare that they are entitled to?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Corporation Tax (17 Apr 2018)

Alister Jack: What assessment he has made of the effect of the recent reduction in corporation tax on employment and wages.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Corporation Tax (17 Apr 2018)

Alister Jack: Successful businesses create jobs and pay taxes. What steps are the Government taking to back businesses that play by the rules?

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Alister Jack: Does the Prime Minister agree that our fishing rights must not be hardwired into any future trade deal?

Exiting the European Union: Customs Union and Free Trade Agreements (15 Mar 2018)

Alister Jack: What assessment he has made of the effect of remaining in the EU customs union on the ability of the UK to seek free trade agreements with non-EU countries.

Exiting the European Union: Customs Union and Free Trade Agreements (15 Mar 2018)

Alister Jack: Will the Minister ensure that the final deal allows the UK to agree new trade deals around the world on day one after we leave the EU?

Electric Dog Collars (14 Mar 2018)

Alister Jack: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate on a subject that I know he feels passionate about. However, can he confirm in his opening remarks that what he is proposing to ban is the shock collar that is used by humans when training dogs, rather than the collars that dogs wear that warn them when they are close to a boundary fence? Those collars serve a good purpose and even save...

Petition - Nature Reserves in Dudley South: Suspicious Deaths Abroad (28 Feb 2018)

Alister Jack: I thank the hon. Lady for securing the debate and for the proposed all-party group on deaths abroad, on which I have said I will help. She refers to poor local police performance. That was certainly the case for Michael Porter, whose mother from Dumfries died in suspicious circumstances in March 2009 on the island of Crete. It was over a year later that the police decided it was murder. Since...

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Alister Jack: I completely agree with my hon. Friend that it is preferable to move all meat on the hook rather than on the hoof. There are long journeys up and down the backbone of the United Kingdom—it is not just about the distance involved with exports into Europe. There is a serious problem with the geographical spread of abattoirs not only in England, but in the devolved regions. We need to get a...

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Alister Jack: I am on my hon. Friend’s side.

Disabled People and Economic Growth: Cancer Strategy (22 Feb 2018)

Alister Jack: I, too, thank the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron) for securing this debate. I would like to take this opportunity to discuss blood cancer in particular. As many will know, there are different types of blood cancer, ranging from leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma to the rarest blood cancers, which affect just a few people. Blood cancer is a complex and much...
