• Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)
    Eleanor Laing: I understand the right hon. Gentleman’s point, but the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant) is setting out the context of his remarks. What he says is, of course, not a matter for me, but if he exceeds the parameters of the debate, I will stop him and insist that he stay within them. At the moment, I think that he is erring a little but wi […]
  • Scottish Parliament: International Women in Engineering Day (19 Jun 2018)
    Jenny Gilruth: ...have shifted markedly. Consider the Rothes pit in my constituency. When the Queen opened it in 1958, it was meant to provide coal until 2070. The colliery was the main reason why the town of Glenrothes was built. However, just four years later, the pit shut down. Sixty years ago, the work that was undertaken in the pits of Fife and across t […]
  • Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)
    Nigel Adams: ...brilliant and moving contributions not just from the hon. Member for Dulwich and West Norwood, but from my hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) and the hon. Members for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) and for Brent Central (Dawn Butler). We also heard, yet again, an incredible speech from the rig […]
  • European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)
    Edward Leigh: I agree with the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant) that we should use the language of respect. I, for one—and many of my colleagues, I am sure—would never use words such as “traitor”. We all accept that there are very different views in this place, but this is not the EU negotiating Bill. It is not a Bill designed from its inception to g […]
  • Leaving the EU: Parliamentary Vote — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (11 Jun 2018)
    Liz Twist: ...to the debate. I thank the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake), the hon. Members for Bolton West (Chris Green), for Bath (Wera Hobhouse), for Gordon (Colin Clark) and for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), and my hon. Friends the Members for Oxford East (Anneliese Dodds), for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West), for Stroud (D […]
  • Scottish Parliament: School Estate (7 Jun 2018)
    Jenny Gilruth: What the young people of Glenrothes really need in the town’s 70th year is school buildings that are fit for learning, yet both Glenrothes and Glenwood high schools’ buildings have a “poor” rating in the most recent Scottish Government data, which was published in 2016. Will the Scottish Government work with Fife Council to ensure that Glenrot […]
  • Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)
    David Rutley: ...debate. As the hon. Member for Workington (Sue Hayman) said, this has been a wide-ranging debate with contributions from across the United Kingdom, including from Scotland through the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), and from Wales with speeches from the hon. Member for Clwyd South (Susan Elan Jones) and the right hon. Member for De […]
  • Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)
    Harriett Baldwin: ...has now been recorded for all time in Hansard. We heard other very moving speeches from the hon. Members for Ealing North (Stephen Pound), for Bassetlaw (John Mann), for Liverpool, Riverside (Mrs Ellman), for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), and for Birmingham, Perry Barr (Mr Mahmood). It is clear that the horror and pain of the holocaust are s […]
  • UK Relations with Qatar — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 May 2018)
    Alistair Burt: ...my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Beckenham that there are imaginative plans to ensure that refrigerated air covers the pitch. It looks as though it will be a quite spectacular operation. Like the Scottish National party spokesperson, the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), I hope strongly that Scotland will be represented at […]
  • Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)
    Andrew Bowie: ...would set a very dangerous precedent for how Cabinet Government and indeed the government of this country would proceed in the future. I was heartened by the response of the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant) in neglecting to answer the question from my hon. Friend the Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge) about Scottish Governmen […]
