Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Drugs: Sentencing (18 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether he has had recent discussions with his counterpart in Northern Ireland on trends in the level of deaths from pregabalin consumption in the north west of Northern Ireland; and whether he plans to take steps to amend sentencing guidelines in the context of these trends.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Economic Growth: Northern Ireland (18 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, what steps her Department has taken to increase opportunities for economic growth in (a) Foyle constituency and (b) Northern Ireland in the last three years.

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 18 - Immunity from prosecution ( 6 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: There are a lot of things that get me angry in this job, but this has got me more angry than anything I have ever had to deal with. The people sitting on the Benches occupied by Members representing Northern Ireland’s constituencies have had to deal with, get to know and work with the victims of our terrible past for decades. Frankly, I am embarrassed today, as I do not know what I am going...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 18 - Immunity from prosecution ( 6 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: The Secretary of State says he cannot put himself in the shoes of the victims, but he could listen to them. Can he tell us how many or what percentage of the victims he has met have shown support for this piece of legislation?

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 18 - Immunity from prosecution ( 6 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: The Minister made this very point at an event that I was at at the weekend, but it was Chatham House rules so I am not allowed to talk about it. He puts forward the argument that the parties just could not agree, but I was involved in many of those discussions and I can tell him that the British Government dragged their feet month after month around the issue of onward disclosure. That is...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 18 - Immunity from prosecution ( 6 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for giving way again. The premise of his argument and some of the arguments we have heard from Members on those Benches, which are sometimes extremely condescending to victims who have been going through this for many decades, is that people will come forward with the truth if we grant immunity. Well, there is one glaring example that proves that is...

Police Service of Northern Ireland: Security and Data Protection Breach ( 4 Med 2023)

Colum Eastwood: I think that Simon Byrne has made absolutely the right decision in resigning today, given everything that has happened in recent weeks. However, there is a much deeper and more significant problem than just one individual, and it is one about which we have been warning for years: the real crisis in the recruitment and retention of Catholic PSNI officers and staff. Does the Secretary of State...

Written Answers — Treasury: Public Sector: Northern Ireland (19 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps his Department plans to take to implement public sector pay rises in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 13 - Conduct of reviews (18 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: That is an interesting take on the matter, given what I remember happening at the time. Yes, the Ulster Unionists had some reservations about the agreement, but all the other parties supported it. It was up to the British Government, along with the Irish Government, to implement it, and it is only because the British Government went off on their own—without the Irish Government—and...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 13 - Conduct of reviews (18 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: Can the Secretary of State think of any time in history when a murderer lied?

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 13 - Conduct of reviews (18 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: Can I ask the hon. Gentleman to be very careful in his language? The last time that solicitors were named in this House, we ended up in a very bad and dangerous place. I would just ask him to be very careful about his language, because we can never go back to those days, and people in this House should not be giving licence for that.

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 13 - Conduct of reviews (18 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: Unlike some of the people who have been involved in this debate more recently, who have left the Chamber of course, we care about the victims and we want to put the victims at the heart of all this. I have been working on this issue for about 20 years. I know many of those victims. They are not people who want to live in the past; they are people who want a better future. But unless we deal...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 13 - Conduct of reviews (18 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: The right hon. Member is absolutely right. The families involved—we do have to be careful—in those investigations are largely very happy about the way in which Jon Boutcher’s team have dealt with them. But, of course, some people—a lot of people—do not want the truth to get out: people in the British Government, people in paramilitary organisations, and some people who were in both...

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (10 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: Will the Minister give way?

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (10 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: It was not me who suggested that that was a tactic. The Secretary of State outlined the tactic in his own speech: he said that the next stages of the Bill will not be introduced until after the summer, and that that would give us all time to work together to get to government. It is clearly a tactic, although it is not going to work as a tactic. There are better tactics in my view, and I have...

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (10 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: I think we are really through the looking-glass now. It is great to hear real unity from those on these Benches about the problems that exist in Northern Ireland’s public sector and the budgetary difficulties that we have. It would be a lot better if members of our political parties were saying it in a different Chamber that has responsibility for bringing in budgets for the Departments of...

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (10 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: My grandmother once told me that two wrongs do not make a right. Is the hon. Gentleman making the argument that just because Sinn Féin brought the Executive down for three and a half years, it is okay for the Democratic Unionist party to do the same?

Written Answers — Treasury: Soft Drinks: Taxation ( 3 Gor 2023)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what data his Department holds on the revenue raised by the Soft Drinks Industry Levy for Northern Ireland for financial year (a) 2020-21, (b) 2021-22 and (c) 2022-23; and if will provide details of how much of levy raised will be distributed to Northern Ireland using the Barnett formula.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Sudan (30 Meh 2023)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will make an estimate of the number of people living in Foyle constituency that have left Sudan due to conflict; and what steps he is taking to provide (a) safe migration routes and (b) asylum to people from Sudan.

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Safety (30 Meh 2023)

Colum Eastwood: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether her Department plan to take steps to ensure the safety and well-being of refugees undertaking (a) channel crossings and (b) land journeys; and what steps she is taking to help refugees arriving in Northern Ireland.
