• Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink (13 Sep 2018)
    Jenny Gilruth: We might not automatically associate my constituency of Mid Fife and Glenrothes with Scottish food and drink fortnight. Having been built to accommodate a coal pit in the 1940s, the main town is today still synonymous with industry. However, Glenrothes was built on the site of rich farmland. Farms such as Caskieberran and Collydean became the […]

  • Scottish Parliament: Social Enterprise World Forum 2018 (11 Sep 2018)
    Willie Rennie: ...welcome, because the area requires support. My wife previously worked for a couple of social enterprises, both of which subsequently closed down. One was a book recycling project in Cowdenbeath, and the other was a paint recycling project in Glenrothes. Neither managed to continue; they struggled to make the finances and the financial model […]
  • Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)
    Robin Walker: ...north-south co-operation to which the hon. Gentleman referred. As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has confirmed in this House, we expect the withdrawal agreement Bill to implement our commitments on Northern Ireland, including the backstop. The hon.

  • Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Children: Maintenance (10 Sep 2018)

  • 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 […]

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 […]
