Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions ( 5 Maw 2015)

Alan Reid: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I am glad that Machrihanish is on the shortlist to become the UK’s first spaceport. It is far from any centres of population, it has a 3-km runway and the facilities of an RAF base, and I believe that it is the ideal candidate. I hope that the Department for Transport will support Machrihanish’s case.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: MV Seaman Guard Ohio (UK Citizens) ( 3 Maw 2015)

Alan Reid: What steps he is taking to secure the return of the UK citizens who were aboard the MV Seaman Guard Ohio when she was detained by the Indian authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: MV Seaman Guard Ohio (UK Citizens) ( 3 Maw 2015)

Alan Reid: I thank the Minister for that answer, but it is now eight months since an Indian court quashed the charges against my constituent Billy Irving. He, and the other UK citizens, are still unable to leave India because the legal process has ground to a halt. Will the Foreign Office redouble its efforts to persuade the Indian authorities to conclude the legal process quickly and get these men home?

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Backbench Business — Equitable Life (26 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. The public need confidence that the pension industry will be regulated properly, and in this case it obviously was not—the Government Actuary’s Department failed. Now that the public finances are in a better state, I think the Government should pay up in full, as recommended by the ombudsman, otherwise people will not have confidence in the future.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Superfast Broadband (26 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: The experience of my constituents this winter is that it is too easy for BT to declare MBORC—matters beyond our reasonable control—and then to take months to repair faults, or not turn up for appointments. Will the Secretary of State examine BT’s licensing conditions with a view to tightening up the rules so that it cannot just use the MBORC cop-out?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Smith Commission (25 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The out-of-touch House of Lords Constitution Committee has said that not enough thought has been given to the impact of giving 16 and 17-year-olds the vote. I hope the Government will reject this recommendation and give 16 and 17-year-olds the right to have their say on who represents them in the Scottish Parliament.

Scotch Whisky Industry (12 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I should like to start by thanking Mr Speaker very much for granting this important debate. With 14 distilleries, the whisky industry is an important employer in my constituency. It provides jobs in remote communities where alternative work would be hard to find. With eight distilleries, whisky is clearly important to the economy of Islay. On Jura, with its small population, the island’s...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: UK's First Space Port (12 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Transport on the location of the UK’s first space port.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: UK's First Space Port (12 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I thank the Minister for that answer. A space port would be a great boost to the British economy. Machrihanish, with its 3 km runway and all the facilities of a Royal Air Force base, and being far from densely populated areas, is obviously the clear choice for the space port. I urge the Government to go on to the next phase of the decision-making process quickly and choose Machrihanish as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (12 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I welcome the introduction of big fines for supermarkets that breach the groceries supply code of practice, but I urge the Government to bring forward the review. We need to extend the code to indirect suppliers such as dairy farmers, who are suffering greatly at the moment. They cannot wait another year. May we have the review much sooner, please?

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Compulsory Jobs Guarantee (11 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I draw the right hon. Gentleman’s attention to the fact that in my constituency unemployment rose by 385 under his Government, whereas it has fallen under this Government by 763. His Government failed, not this one.

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Dairy Industry ( 4 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ribble Valley (Mr Evans) on initiating this important debate. The fall in the milk price is causing serious problems for British dairy farmers. In my constituency, dairy farmers are mainly concentrated in Kintyre and the Isle of Bute. There are many dairy farms in Kintyre and the industry is a vital part of the local economy, which would struggle...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity ( 3 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: I thank the hon. Member for Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman) for so ably introducing the debate and the Backbench Business Committee for the opportunity to raise the hopeless performance of telephone companies in Argyll and Bute. In the past two months, telephone companies, both landline and mobile, have failed miserably to keep many of my constituents in telephone contact...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity ( 3 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: My hon. Friend is correct. We all knew for months, if not years, in advance that NATO was meeting in south Wales. His comments clearly indicate that BT looks for excuses to declare MBORC. As several hon. Members have mentioned, BT Openreach is in the privileged position of having a monopoly on landlines. It should not be able to dodge its responsibilities for months simply by declaring MBORC....

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity ( 3 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: My hon. Friend makes a good point. Fines are necessary to encourage companies to carry out their responsibilities properly, and not just use the cop-out of declaring MBORC. On mobile phones—the problem is not just with landlines—Vodafone cannot escape criticism either. Its performance in carrying out repairs has been poor. For example, last summer it took 18 days to repair a fault on the...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity ( 3 Chw 2015)

Alan Reid: The hon. Gentleman is fiddling the figures. The total might be £400 million, but well over £100 million of that came from the UK Government and well over £100 million from BT. The Scottish Government put something in, but delivery by the Scottish Government and BT is hopeless. It is high time that the hon. Gentleman got on to the Scottish Government and told them to deliver broadband to my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Agricultural Policy Funds (29 Ion 2015)

Alan Reid: When she plans to review the allocation of common agricultural policy funds between Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Agricultural Policy Funds (29 Ion 2015)

Alan Reid: I thank the Minister for that answer. If the review shows that farmers in any one part of the UK are being unfairly treated by the current allocation formula, it is obviously important that the outcome of the review is implemented straight away. I hope that the Minister will commit to supporting a speedy implementation.
