All 5 results for those spreading mistruths

Scottish Parliament: General Practitioner Services (15 Sep 2021)

Stuart McMillan: ...Sue Webber made earlier and the comments of Douglas Ross on 1 September. The conversation continued for a couple more emails and then ended. The email from that GP clearly shows frustration at MSPs spreading mistruths, and it does no one any favours to perpetuate that myth. Hearing the Tories in this chamber making those claims again today highlights yet again the lack of regard that they...

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

Anna Soubry: .... We are told that in June 2016 the will of the people was to reject the free movement of people. My hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent South (Jack Brereton) nods, but that is not true. Of those people eligible to vote, 37% voted for us to leave the European Union.
