Canlyniadau 21–40 o 370 ar gyfer speaker:Ged Killen

Whorlton Hall: Business of the House (23 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: “Channel 4 News” has revealed that in the past two years the Northern Ireland Office has spent just £318 on advancing LGBT rights in Northern Ireland, a part of the UK where people are still denied the right to marry if they are in a same-sex relationship. I do not think that the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has done anything on this since she took office. May we have a...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (23 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: Next month, UEFA will start the process of recruiting 12,000 volunteers from host countries, including Scotland and England, for Euro 2020. They will be expected to give a huge time commitment and to work for free in complex roles that involve huge responsibility, including anti-doping. Is that not just exploitation dressed up as an opportunity, and will the Secretary of State raise it with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (15 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am seeking your advice on an issue relating to my constituent, Sabir Zazai. Mr Zazai is to be honoured by the University of Glasgow for his service to civil society over the past 20 years. He is the chief executive officer of the Scottish Refugee Council. Understandably, he wishes his family to join him on that very special occasion but unfortunately Mr...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: State Retirement Pensions: Females (15 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 8 February 2019 to Question 217138, what designation has been assigned to those complaints.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: State Retirement Pensions: Females (15 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 8 February 2019 to Question 217138, what assessment she has made of the potential merits of her Department instructing the Independent Case Examiner to reopen complaints relating to the equalisation of the state pension age cases in the event that legal proceedings fall away.

Written Answers — Treasury: Social Security Benefits: Cohabitation ( 9 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what recent assessment he has made of the potential merits of extending (a) the marriage allowance and (b) other benefits to long-term cohabiting couples.

TV Licences for over-75S ( 8 Mai 2019)

Ged Killen: Is not one of the cruellest things about this that it is younger people, by and large, who have a far greater choice when it comes to TV viewing, because many of them are now using subscription services, which actually do not require a BBC licence at all and, in many cases, those services are also cheaper? Older people do not have that choice, so is it not very cruel that those are the people...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: It is a pity that the Minister’s response was cut short, not least because I was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what he had to say about the FSS issue that has been raised several times by Members in the debate. As the Minister says, this has been a considered debate. I am not sure what progress we have made, but we have at least been able to give some of the issues an airing. I am...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: I beg to move, That this House has considered the diversification of the defence industry in Scotland. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Hollobone. I am glad that this debate was selected because it is an opportunity to raise the important and seldom discussed topic of the defence industry in Scotland. We are rightly proud of our history of shipbuilding. I represent a...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: I completely agree with my hon. Friend, and later in my speech I will make the point that making short-term decisions without looking at the whole picture is inherently flawed.

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: I absolutely agree with the hon. Gentleman. I will touch on that point later in my remarks. Although we must continue to support shipbuilding, the UK and Scottish Governments must focus on diversifying and deepening the defence industry in Scotland to ensure that there will always be a base for the high-skill and high-value roles associated with the industry—that is eminently achievable....

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. As a satellite hub, companies in Glasgow have produced huge volumes of satellites. Two companies, Alba Orbital and Spire Global, have between them put around 100 satellites in orbit, and Spire Global makes one new satellite per week. The recent go-ahead for the spaceport in Sutherland, as well as Glasgow’s growing microsatellite industry, perfectly...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: My hon. Friend will not be surprised to know that we have different views on Britain’s membership of the European Union. I largely consider that we are kicking ourselves out of the EU and should accept the consequences of that, although I regret the impact that it will have on projects such as Galileo. Further to the space sector, the construction of advanced land vehicles offers an...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: I absolutely agree. Recently, when I visited the site, I was pleased to see how many of my constituents are employed there. I am disappointed about the previous actions of both the UK Government and, to a certain extent, the Scottish Government. The recent failure by the UK Government to support the construction of the fleet solid support vessels, as mentioned in this debate and many other...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his point, which was well made. I am sure that the Minister will respond in his remarks.

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. To be frank, I find it amazing that the red, white and blue Conservative party of Great Britain does not see the merit of building such ships in Britain, creating so much benefit for years to come. In the context of this debate, we must also look at the Scottish Government’s role. Recently, the First Minister set out her plans for a new independence...

Defence Industry: Scotland (30 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: There are so many different layers to this. Going into the day-to-day costs in pounds sterling is bad enough, but adding the uncertainty of trying to set up a whole new currency from scratch takes us into the realm of fantasy. We have a good opportunity, through smart industrial policy, to build a healthy, thriving and contributory defence industry in Scotland. The Labour party has put smart...

LGBT Rights: Brunei (10 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: Clearly, this is brutality at the very extreme end of the spectrum. However, it should not have to get to that point before we take LGBT rights seriously. My hon. Friend is talking about the UK. The Government are turning a blind eye to LGBT rights here in the UK, by denying the extension of equal marriage rights to Northern Ireland. Surely we have to get our own house in order if we are to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Devolved Government (10 Ebr 2019)

Ged Killen: Devolution and peace in Northern Ireland is precious and hard won. That is brilliantly captured with great humour and poignancy in the latest series of “Derry Girls”, which I know the Secretary of State is a fan of. Will she join me in congratulating Lisa McGee and the entire production team on another brilliant series?
