EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Phil Wilson: History shows what happens when this country turns its back and stops engaging with Europe. That is why most of the world and many experts are asking us to remain where we are. Those who say that we must look to the world as well as to the EU are correct and I agree with them, but we should do that as part of the biggest and richest single market in the world. If the rest of the world is...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Phil Wilson: My hon. Friend is right. Hitachi has come to the north-east of England for two reasons: it has an excellent workforce and is the gateway to Europe. We know that its business model for that investment— £82 million in Newton Aycliffe in my constituency—was predicated on the fact that we are part of the EU. Those who support the leave campaign say that we should not worry about...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Phil Wilson: My hon. Friend makes a good point, which I shall expand on during my speech. The leave campaign says that it will pick up the tab after 23 June if we vote to come out of the EU. I say to the people in the north-east, “Don’t listen to those people. They can’t do it. It’s the biggest con ever.” First of all, they are not the Government. Secondly, they have already...

Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Phil Wilson: Order. I am going to have to drop the time limit for speeches to four minutes because there are still more than 20 Members who want to speak.

Foreign Aid Expenditure — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Jun 2016)

Phil Wilson: Members do not need to be told that quite a lot of them want to catch my eye, so I will introduce a time limit of five minutes straight away. The first person I shall call, who will stick to that limit, I am sure, is Joan Ryan.

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Phil Wilson: I want to talk about the importance of rail manufacturing, and primarily about the importance of Hitachi to the local economy in my constituency. The Hitachi Rail Europe factory in Newton Aycliffe opened last year and is creating 730 jobs, with many more in the supply chain. The factory is a superb, modern facility. Costing £82 million, it is the largest private sector investment in the...

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Phil Wilson: That is absolutely right. I made the specific point about Hitachi because it is based in my constituency, but it is fair to say that for a lot of foreign investors, our being part of the EU is key to their future plans. I am disappointed that some Members are prepared to play fast and loose with the facts. The hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) was recently quoted in...

Backbench Business: Digital Records in the NHS — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (28 Apr 2016)

Phil Wilson: Minister, before you respond, may I say that you have been on your feet now for 30 minutes and the Minister’s response is usually about 10 minutes? I just want you to bear that in mind.

Backbench Business: Digital Records in the NHS — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (28 Apr 2016)

Phil Wilson: Order. May I just respectfully say to the Minister, you have now spoken longer than the Member who moved the motion for the debate. You turned up an hour late and have now spoken for 40 minutes. I just want you to bear that in mind. The debate does go on to 4.30, but I respectfully point out that Ministers who have been present for the full debate usually speak for just 10 minutes. Hopefully...

Backbench Business: Digital Records in the NHS — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (28 Apr 2016)

Phil Wilson: Before I call the Minister, let me say that I am really disappointed that he could not be here from the start of the debate. I know that the agenda for this afternoon was changed, but that was on the Order Paper; it was known. I am sure that the change would also have been communicated to the Department, in ample time for this afternoon’s debate. Bearing that in mind, I call the...

Mental Health Taskforce Report — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Apr 2016)

Phil Wilson: Order. Before I call the first speaker, I will impose an informal time limit on speeches of five minutes, because so many people want to get in. Please will the next speaker and others keep within the timeframe, so that I do not have to reduce the time limit any more?

Local Government Funding: North-East — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (1 Mar 2016)

Phil Wilson: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. I represent part of the rural area of Darlington borough. Will she explain how unsubtle the funding formula for local government has become? Surrey has received £24 million of the £300 million transitional grant, but Darlington Borough Council is facing cuts of £20 million to £22 million.

Local Government Funding: North-East — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (1 Mar 2016)

Phil Wilson: My hon. Friend mentioned transport infrastructure, and she will be aware just as much as I am of the effect that the public transport cuts have had in Darlington borough. Some communities that I represent in the borough, such as Brafferton and Sadberge, no longer have public transport, which is affecting places such as Hurworth, Heighington, Middleton St George and Piercebridge. That just...

Local Government Funding: North-East — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (1 Mar 2016)

Phil Wilson: I do not know whether my hon. Friend is aware, but revenue spending per household in Darlington from 2011-12 to 2019-20 will be reduced by £1,642. In Durham the figure is £1,600 and in Gateshead it is nearly £2,000. Does that not prove how brutal and unsubtle the cuts are for the north-east of England, when we compare them with what is happening in the south?

Public Bill Committee: Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords]: Clause 11 - Examinations and reviews (9 Feb 2016)

Phil Wilson: Can I just ask you to stick to the first group of the Government amendments? We can then move on after that debate.

Public Bill Committee: Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords]: Clause 11 - Examinations and reviews (9 Feb 2016)

Public Bill Committee: Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords]: Clause 6 - Monetary Policy Committee: membership (9 Feb 2016)
