Business of the House (27 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: I am surprised that there has not been more objection to the other innovation taking place, which is that we are going to cast our votes using bits of paper. Some might want to use vellum or quill and ink. If Mr Speaker were to choose all the amendments, that could result in about four hours of voting. So perhaps the real innovation that comes from today is a modernisation of our voting...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Discussions with Scottish Government (27 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: What recent discussions he has had with the Scottish Government on the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Discussions with Scottish Government (27 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: Sixty-two per cent. of people in Scotland voted to remain, so that is an elite that I am pretty happy to be part of. Some 7,500 of his constituents and 14,500 of mine have signed the petition to revoke article 50. The right hon. Gentleman is supposed to be the Secretary of State for Scotland and Scotland is against Brexit, so when is he going to do his job, stand up for Scotland and stand up...

Backbench Business - Services for People with Autismbackbench Business (21 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Can you advise me, first, how we can get on the record that over 1 million people have now signed the petition calling for the revocation of article 50 as the best way to stop the Brexit madness that seems to be engulfing the country, and secondly, whether you have had any indication from the Leader of the House—she said this morning that if it got...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I can assure you and the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) that Whips always smile and are never cross. I want to press the Leader of the House on the issue of the House sitting on the Friday, and potentially the Saturday, of next week. I found it quite astonishing that there had never been a plan for us to sit on what was supposed to have been Brexit day. Given...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Cycling and Walking (21 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: At the weekend, I had the pleasure of walking the new South Loch Ness trail with a group of friends, one of whom is getting married, and we managed only to get lost once, which was pretty good given that there was a blizzard. That trail was only made possible thanks to funding from the European agriculture fund for rural development, so what steps are the Government taking to make sure that...

Cyclone Idai (20 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: It is World Water Day on Friday, but for people in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, there is water everywhere but not a drop to drink. In the all-party parliamentary group on Malawi, which I chair, we have been following the effect of devastating floods that had already been hitting the country before the cyclone. The Minister might be aware that the Scottish Government have already made a...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Leaving the EU: Businesses in Scotland (19 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: What recent discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on fiscal support for businesses based in Scotland making preparations for the UK leaving the EU.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Leaving the EU: Businesses in Scotland (19 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: Actually, the best support for businesses in Scotland would presumably be for Scotland to stay in the European Union, because IDA Ireland reckons that its country has gained more than 5,000 jobs as a result of Brexit-related investment, so it is a little bit perverse that it seems to be that the countries staying in the European Union are enjoying the benefits that were supposed to come from...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (19 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: Just days after hundreds of children in Glasgow joined the thousands around the world campaigning for action to tackle climate change, a massive cyclone and devastating floods have hit Mozambique, Malawi and other parts of central Africa. What steps is the Department taking, working with the Department for International Development and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, to help developing...

Point of Order: Points of Order (14 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. During business questions, the hon. Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire) raised the issue of the avalanche of statutory instruments going through Parliament, particularly from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and the massive overstretch next week, both on the Committee corridor and in the Chamber. It might be easier to handle...

Women and Equalities: Shared Parental Leave Uptake (14 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: What recent estimate she has made of the uptake of shared parental leave.

Women and Equalities: Shared Parental Leave Uptake (14 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: Will the Minister give a timescale for the extension of shared parental leave to the self-employed?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: The DEFRA Secretary has told me from the Dispatch Box on at least a couple of occasions that other European countries will be looking enviously at the United Kingdom’s withdrawal agreement. That can surely no longer be the case, so does my hon. Friend think that that may explain why the Secretary of State was so unwilling to take interventions from me and so many of our SNP colleagues today?

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: rose—

Business of the House (7 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: May we have a debate—another debate—on Home Office incompetence? I have a constituent who is going to become an overstayer in the country today because she cannot sit her Home Office life-in-the-UK test as the same Home Office has failed to return her expired passport. We have had no progress via the hotline, so may we at least have a Minister come to the House and take some...

International Women’S Day: The Modern Commonwealth: Opportunities and Challenges (7 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: I congratulate the hon. Member for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge) on securing this debate. I share with him a lot of interest in this issue and in wider issues, on a range of all-party groups. It is very timely to be having this debate before Commonwealth Day on Monday and nearly a year after the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting took place here in London. We are marking...

Public Accounts Committee (7 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: I am surprised that there are not more people with an interest in this subject. This is a very useful report, as it demonstrates how deeply embedded the hostile environment still is in the Home Office and how much further there is to travel. It also shows the need for far-reaching cultural change. I wish to pick up on recommendation 5, on the need to extend the review beyond Caribbean...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (7 Mar 2019)

Patrick Grady: When are the Government going to crack down on ticket reselling websites? A constituent of mine was scammed by being charged over £600 for tickets that should have cost £130 at the box office. Viagogo refused to take any responsibility even though it facilitated and profited from this rip-off transaction. The Government have to haul these companies in and get it sorted out.
