Canlyniadau 1–20 o 441 ar gyfer speaker:Bill Grant

E-cigarettes — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (31 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I congratulate my friend, the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb), on securing this important debate. E-cigarette use in the UK has followed a gently rising trend over the past few years, and last year, statistics from the Office for National Statistics showed that 6.3% of those over 16 were regular users—a rise of...

E-cigarettes — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (31 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: It is something to be neither proud nor ashamed of. It was part of the culture of the time. I was part of that culture. There are two things in life that I have never regretted: marrying my wife, Agnes, and giving up smoking. They are equally wonderful. I have had the pleasure to serve on the Science and Technology Committee since shortly after I was elected to this House, and it has been a...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry). Grenfell is a tragedy that should never have happened, and the likes of it must never happen again. I welcome any report that allows us to learn lessons for the future, but we must not simply learn; we must follow through and apply those lessons. Unfortunately, given the timing of the...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. He is correct. In Glasgow, where there are many high-rise flats, that policy has worked well, but as I will come on to say, we need a bit of flexibility. I firmly believe—I think he would share this view—that the events that night at Grenfell were exceptional. They were not normal; they were an extreme. It was a very difficult fire for any...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: Will the hon. and learned Lady give way?

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: We hear what it believes to be the voice of Scotland, but the SNP is the voice of some of Scotland. What SNP Members do not often say is that more people voted in Scotland to leave the European Union in 2016 than voted for the SNP at the general election in 2017—and that is a fact. A lot of people in Scotland voted to leave the European Union.

Health and Social Care: Genomics (29 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: What recent assessment he has made of the merits of using genomics in healthcare.

Health and Social Care: Genomics (29 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: With increasing direct-to-consumer genomic testing by private companies, can my hon. Friend advise what assessment has been made of the potential impact of self-referrals on NHS services?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Lighting (28 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions she has had with devolved Administrations on ensuring that warning lights on onshore wind turbines do not compromise gold tier dark sky parks including the Galloway and the Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Noise (28 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment her Department has made of the potential effects of (a) low-frequency sound and (b) amplitude modulation from onshore wind turbines on public (i) health and (ii) quality of life.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power (28 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions her Department has had with the devolved Administrations on distribution density of onshore wind turbines and the effect of that distribution density on communities.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Wind Power: Ayrshire (28 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps she is taking with devolved Administrations to address negative perceptions of the effects of onshore wind turbines in the (a) Carrick area of south Ayrshire and (b) Cumnock area of east Ayrshire.

The National Health Service (23 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: I value the hon. Lady’s comments about how money is being sucked out of the NHS. In Scotland, we have a particular issue with a large showpiece hospital in Edinburgh that should have been opened in 2012, seven years ago, that is sucking money from the NHS—millions of pounds annually over the past six or seven years. She may wish to comment on that.

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Lewisham, Deptford (Vicky Foxcroft). I welcome the Queen’s Speech in its entirety. I have raised environmental concerns on around 25 occasions in the past two years. From that you can deduce, Mr Deputy Speaker, that it is a subject that I feel very strongly about. Of course, this Government are already doing a great deal in relation to climate...

Online Pornography: Age Verification (17 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: The protection of our children is paramount, and a recent report on online harms by the NSPCC did not make good reading, and suggested to me that time is of the essence. Will my hon. Friend assure the House that any independent regulator that is introduced will have sufficient enforcement powers to take effective action against sites that ignore their moral responsibility and make it easy for...

Us Tariffs: Scotch Whisky ( 7 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: Will my hon. Friend advise me what steps the UK Government are taking to help to broker a negotiated settlement between the EU and the United States on what is essentially a long-standing issue regarding airplane manufacture between Boeing and Airbus, thus avoiding damaging tariffs for companies such as William Grant & Sons in Girvan, in close proximity to Trump Turnberry, and on cashmere...

Trophy Hunting Imports — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] ( 2 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: To clarify, the verse was penned in 1789, when the rules might have been a tad different.

Trophy Hunting Imports — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] ( 2 Hyd 2019)

Bill Grant: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hosie. With your permission, I may leave a wee bit early so that I can synchronise with the Virgin Trains timetabling. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) on securing this important debate. Trophy hunting is a particularly emotive topic but, as usual with such an issue, the situation is not entirely...

Hong Kong (26 Med 2019)

Bill Grant: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the latest developments we are witnessing in Hong Kong are part of a wider trend of civil and political freedoms being reduced over time? What actions can the UK take to halt, or indeed reverse, such a trend?

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) ( 9 Med 2019)

Bill Grant: The right hon. Gentleman fails to tell the House something. I have said this before, but more people in Scotland voted in 2016 to leave the EU than voted for the SNP in the 2017 election. [Hon. Members: “ More!”]
