  1. EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: A very happy recess to you, Mr Speaker. It is quite embarrassing for the Government that they are already having to amend their European Union (Withdrawal) Act, which is only a month old and was passed without legislative consent from the Scottish Parliament. Does he believe that the customs Bill and the Trade Bill will also have to be amended by the withdrawal agreement Bill?
  2. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bridges: English Channel (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the oral contribution of the then Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of 20 February 2018, Official Report, column 5, whether it is his Department's policy to explore the possibility of a new fixed link between Great Britain and France.
  3. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: France: Foreign Relations (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the Answers of 6 March 2018 and 8 March 2018 to Questions 130582 and 130801 on France: Foreign relations, what progress has been made in establishing the committee of wise people to explore future UK-French collaboration.
  4. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Colombia: Human Rights (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will respond to Early Day Motion 1492, on human rights in Colombia.
  5. Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: What steps he is taking to tackle workforce shortages in the NHS.
  6. Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: In that case, perhaps the Secretary of State will join the Royal College of Nursing in welcoming the action by the Scottish Government to enshrine safe staffing levels and ratios in law. Given that there are over 36,000 vacant nursing posts in the NHS in England, when will he follow the Scottish Government’s lead and bring forward legislation on safe staffing levels?
  7. Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.
  8. Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: Will the Secretary of State update the House on the progress of Baroness Cumberlege’s review of the use of mesh implants? Will he confirm whether the inquiry will liaise with the Scottish Government and whether it will hold any evidence sessions in Scotland? There are plenty of women, including some in my constituency, who had operations in England but now live in Scotland. Their voices...
  9. Bill Presented: Strengthening the Union (23 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: If all this is so important, and if respecting devolution is so important, can the Minister explain why, for the first time in history, this House and this Government have chosen to override the will of the Scottish Parliament by passing the EU (Withdrawal) Bill without a legislative consent memorandum?
  10. Bill Presented: Strengthening the Union (23 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: But Ruth Davidson promised that if Scotland voted no it would get to stay in the European Union. How come that has changed?
  11. Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: I am grateful to the Leader of the House for confirming which Union will be discussed in the debate on Monday—it is just as well it is not a debate on the Conservative and Unionist party being strengthened! I notice that almost all the business for the first week back is likely to be subject to the EVEL—English votes for English laws—procedure, so it is ironic that it comes...
  12. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Nicaragua: Violence (19 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will respond to EDM 1494, Unrest and Violence in Nicaragua.
  13. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Nicaragua: Violence (19 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with the Nicaraguan Ambassador to the UK on the human rights situation in Nicaragua.
  14. Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Nicaragua: Violence (19 Jul 2018)

  16. Exiting the European Union: Devolved Administrations (19 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: I think that the Government are still planning to bring forward a withdrawal agreement and implementation Bill in due course, so will the Minister tell us whether that will require legislative consent from the devolved institutions? Will he also tell us whether he expects it to have to amend or repeal any aspects of the customs and trade Bills that we have been debating this week?
  17. Space Policy (18 Jul 2018)

    Patrick Grady: I have a feeling that we are about to witness some rocket launches long before anything takes off from a site in Sutherland. Given the contribution that Glasgow makes to the space industry—more satellites are manufactured there than anywhere else in Europe, and pioneering research takes place in the space institute at the University of Glasgow in my constituency—what discussions...
