Iran-Israel Update (15 Ebr 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I hope the Prime Minister has heard the very strong and broad consensus in this House on the need for stability and de-escalation. When he speaks to Prime Minister Netanyahu, will he make it clear to him that if Israel were now to proceed with its much-anticipated attack on Rafah, it would be not only a humanitarian catastrophe for the 1.5 million Palestinians who are sheltering there and...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Rescue Services: Standards (21 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent discussions he has had with the operators of helicopter search and rescue services on response times.

Transport: Topical Questions (21 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I thank Ministers for facilitating discussions with the operators of the search and rescue helicopter service based in my constituency about the proposed response times. They have been fairly productive so far, and we will see what the outcome is. It is apparent already that the decisions are made solely on the basis of the number of calls and not the nature of the work undertaken. If the...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for East Antrim (Sammy Wilson). He says that he is proud as a Unionist to see this decision being taken here, but I say to him gently: be wary of Scottish nationalists bearing gifts of UK accountability, because essentially that is where we have come to today. I will pick up the point about territorial jurisdiction later, but I first want to...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: That is one way in which the procedure could be done. However, I say to the hon. Gentleman and the hon. Member for Motherwell and Wishaw that the question of quashing convictions is just one element of justice. The other important element is that those who were responsible for initiating the prosecutions must be accountable. That accountability would be missing if the provisions for Scotland...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The hon. Gentleman is right. If he has been listening, he will have heard me speak on a number of occasions about my work to support constituents who are pursuing claims as part of the historic shortfall scheme. That would be the route to compensation for the people to whom the hon. Gentleman refers. We have taken a particular approach quite deliberately and for good reason. Because the Post...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I do not think it is unfortunate, but highly fortunate and deliberate, that we are in the UK, but we will save that debate for another day. The compensation can and will be paid on a UK-wide basis. Given the timescale that the Government have outlined so far, we would expect the convictions to be quashed on the basis of this Bill by the middle of July. That gives the Scottish Parliament time...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I am grateful to the Minister for that. Those who are not convicted will have access to compensation through the historic shortfall scheme—a process available to them at the moment.

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I do not really need to answer that, so I will take the hon. Lady’s intervention.

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: That is a political decision for the Scottish Government, who control the Scottish Parliament’s business, to take.

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: They are set by the Parliamentary Bureau, of which the majority of members come from the SNP and the Greens. I have kept this fairly broad in its terms. Can I just say gently to the hon. Lady that if the Scottish Government, instead of trying to evade political accountability, would take their responsibilities seriously and get on with it, they would get on with the drafting of the necessary...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Can the hon. Gentleman sitting to my left explain to me why he thinks that is not true?

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill (20 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a solution to the issue inasmuch as it is another means of doing the same thing that the hon. Gentleman’s party wants to do in respect of the Bill, but it is not a solution inasmuch as it allows that level of accountability, and it is the accountability that matters. The current Lord Advocate, Dorothy Bain, has already said, on the record, that “not every case involving Horizon...
