  1. European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: The Secretary of State says that the situation is not normal, but he is establishing a new normal. He is establishing that this place can and will override the Scottish Parliament whenever, or if ever, the Scottish Parliament chooses to disagree. That is the opposite of the Sewel convention. The way he could demonstrate that he is not in defiance of the Sewel convention is by standing at the...
  2. Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: I join the congratulations to the Clerk of the House and thank him and his team for his professionalism and advice over the last few days, and particularly the Division Clerks, because they have been working three-hour shifts in a row. I want to echo the question from my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh East (Tommy Sheppard). The voting system in this place is not just archaic; it is...
  3. Galileo Programme (14 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: My constituency neighbour, the hon. Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney), is absolutely right about how crucial the satellite manufacturing and space industry is to Glasgow, as is the world-class space research that takes place in the University of Glasgow and other institutions in the city. As well as discussions with industry, what discussions has the Minister been having with the...

  6. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: British Indian Ocean Territory: Ilois (14 Jun 2018)

  7. Exiting the European Union: Customs Arrangements (14 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: Does the Minister think that the sight of Ministers and Whips negotiating in real time their position on the customs union, either from the Dispatch Box or on the Benches, helps or hinders the UK’s negotiating position with the rest of the European Union?
  8. Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: The Secretary of State listed a series of conventions and mandates that he wants to see respected in the Brexit process. I notice that he did not mention the mandate of the 62% of people in Scotland who voted to remain and the 20-year-old Sewel convention, which determines the relationship between this place and the Government in Scotland. Does he seriously think that ripping up the...
  9. Scottish Affairs Committee (7 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: I join others who have congratulated the Scottish Faither of the Hoose on his 17 years of service. That is a record that none of the rest of us will be able to achieve, because Scotland will be independent before any other Scottish MPs have served 17 years. Does he share my concern that these closures are taking place in the context of an overall diminishing of our high streets? We are seeing...
  10. Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgical Mesh Implants (6 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of conducting a retrospective audit of ventral mesh rectopexy to take account of its omission from the Government's audit into recovery after vaginal mesh surgery.
  11. Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgical Mesh Implants (6 Jun 2018)

  12. Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgical Mesh Implants (6 Jun 2018)

  15. Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (6 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: This is the Secretary of State who vowed to make Holyrood “one of the most powerful devolved Parliaments” in the history of the known universe, so why is he prepared to see this Westminster Parliament override the ruling of the Holyrood Parliament, which has withheld its consent? How does that square with his vow to respect and empower Holyrood?

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Prime Minister, if she will publish an updated list of Government parliamentary private secretaries.
  17. Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugee Family Reunion (4 Jun 2018)

    Patrick Grady: The Home Secretary says he wants to consider the private Members’ Bills, so is it not about time the Government brought forward a money resolution so that the Bill in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Na h-Eileanan an Iar (Angus Brendan MacNeil), the Refugees (Family Reunion) (No. 2) Bill, can make progress and we can debate the Government’s amendments?
