Canlyniadau 1–20 o 2642 ar gyfer speaker:Stuart McDonald

Infected Blood Compensation Scheme (21 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: There was much to welcome in what the Minister said today, but can I take him back to the issue of existing support schemes, which are of course incredibly important for so many? In the second interim report, recommendation 13 says that “current annual payments under the support schemes should be continued…and guaranteed for life” and that such payments should only be taken into account...

Women’s State Pension Age: Ombudsman Report (16 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure, as ever, to follow another expert speech from the right hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell). I commend my hon. Friend the Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson) for securing the debate, and my hon. Friend the Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Alan Brown) for taking forward his Bill. Both are real WASPI champions, and they make a fierce...

Conflict in Sudan: El Fasher (16 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: As I understand it, previous regional efforts to agree on the deployment of a peace- keeping force in Sudan were rebuffed last year, but I find it incredibly hard to see how ever-escalating atrocity and indeed catastrophe can be avoided without one. Is that even on the agenda now, because otherwise it seems to me we are talking here not so much about atrocity prevention as about atrocity...

Palestinians: Visa Scheme — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (13 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: As I said in my speech, nobody is arguing that there should not be biometric checks, but they can be done in an intermediate country, such as Egypt. The Canadians operate like that, and the Canadians are also much more successful in getting people out of the country because they are on a specific list. Why cannot the UK Government just do what the Canadians are doing?

Palestinians: Visa Scheme — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (13 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: I congratulate everybody who has been involved in supporting the e-petition and the Committee Chair, the hon. Member for Lancaster and Fleetwood (Cat Smith), for her excellent introduction to the debate. I proudly put on the record my full support for a Gaza family scheme. It is impossible to imagine the fear and terror that every single morning must bring to people who have loved ones...

Palestinians: Visa Scheme — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (13 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The existing visa schemes were not designed to help people out of a war-torn hellhole. They were designed to allow folk to come here as family members, as spouses, to study or to work. We need a bespoke arrangement that is designed for the catastrophe that is unfolding before our very eyes.

Palestinians: Visa Scheme — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (13 Mai 2024)

Stuart McDonald: I thank the hon. Member for the intervention. I simply repeat the point: the system is not designed for the circumstances that are unfolding, and it is imperative that the Government get their finger out and design a suitable bespoke scheme. I join other hon. Members in calling on the Minister to rethink his Department’s utterly wrong-headed approach to biometrics in war-torn countries. A...

Partner and Spousal Visas: Minimum Income — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (23 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: Will the Minister give way?

Partner and Spousal Visas: Minimum Income — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (23 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: The Minister mentioned public opinion, but I rather suspect that if the Government canvassed public opinion, they would find that people are shocked and appalled that their friends and colleagues are being split apart from their spouses. He prays in aid public opinion, but what research have the Government done on the proposals?

Partner and Spousal Visas: Minimum Income — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (23 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: Will the Minister give way?

Partner and Spousal Visas: Minimum Income — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (23 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to be called so early in this debate on what is effectively a Tory means test on marriage. I congratulate the hon. Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield) on securing it. I almost never disagree with anything he says in a debate, and today is no exception. I thank him for his work in ensuring that we have this opportunity. It is about seven years since I led a debate...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (23 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: Mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid could save many thousands of children from spina bifida, so why is it happening so slowly, at such a low level and applied to too few products?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Flour: Folic Acid (23 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what progress she has made on implementing the mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid.

Sudan: Government Response (22 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: This morning I had the pleasure to meet some brilliant organisations working on behalf of people in Sudan who are desperate to be reunited with family here in the UK. They want answers to two questions. First, given the circumstances people are having to live in, why is it taking over a year for many applications to be decided? Secondly, why do the Government demand that these people make...

Science, Innovation and Technology: AI: Impact on Democracy (17 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: What assessment her Department has made of the potential impact of AI on democracy.

Science, Innovation and Technology: AI: Impact on Democracy (17 Ebr 2024)

Stuart McDonald: In the longer term, I agree that AI has enormous potential to support participation in politics, and we should seek to harness that. But in the short term, disinformation and deepfakes, often put together by foreign actors, threaten to have the most immediate impact on democracy. What risk does the Minister believe AI poses to this year’s election in particular, and what steps is he taking...

Investigatory Powers (Amendment)Bill [Lords]: Clause 14 - Powers to obtain communications data (25 Maw 2024)

Stuart McDonald: I, too, thank all colleagues who have taken part in the proceedings today, in Committee stage and before, especially members of the ISC whose expertise really does benefit our scrutiny processes. I also thank all the various organisations that have provided written evidence and briefings, both in support of, and in opposition to, the Bill. Finally, may I also thank the Committee staff and the...

Investigatory Powers (Amendment)Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Report on the Prime Minister’s engagement with the Intelligence and Security Committee (25 Maw 2024)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. and learned Member for Kenilworth and Southam (Sir Jeremy Wright), and to take part in what has already been a very thoughtful debate. We also had a very constructive Committee stage, so the amendments in my name and that of my hon. Friend the Member for Midlothian (Owen Thompson) are designed first to pose some further questions to the Minister,...

Investigatory Powers (Amendment)Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Report on the Prime Minister’s engagement with the Intelligence and Security Committee (25 Maw 2024)

Stuart McDonald: I am grateful to the right hon. and learned Member for that intervention. He possibly makes a fair point. If I recall correctly, the wording of that proposed new subsection was borrowed from another part of the Bill. I might be wrong about that; I need to go away and have a look. I suppose the argument would simply be that if a category authorisation is to any extent being abused, it is...

Women’s State Pension Age (25 Maw 2024)

Stuart McDonald: The expression “Justice delayed is justice denied” has never seemed more appropriate, with so many thousands of WASPI women waiting for justice to be delivered and dying in the process. It is not just the five years waiting for the ombudsman’s report, but the years before that jumping through the hoops of the DWP complaints process and the independent case examiner. As well as...
