Transport (Tees Valley) (10 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: I am grateful to the Minister. I wonder whether he will raise with his Treasury colleagues an aspect of air passenger duty which affects Durham Tees Valley airport and the other airport in the north-east, namely its devolution to Edinburgh. It would be very beneficial if the Government gave some thought to what could be done to ensure that there is no loss to the regional airports in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: May I associate myself with the comments that the Prime Minister has just made? A constituent of mine, an agency worker, told me that he only pays income tax if he works overtime. Part of his wages is paid in expenses, even when he is on holiday, which affects his national insurance contributions and therefore his benefit and pension entitlement. The sum of 16 a week is deducted from...

Public Bill Committee: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (4 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: On a point of order, Mr Hood. Outside this House the NHS is the top concern of the public. This Bill passed Second Reading with 241 votes to 18. Will people struggle to understand why we are not discussing the substance of the Bill, but instead having to listen to Conservative Members waffle inanely for nearly two and a half hours?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Neighbourhood Planning and Community Rights (2 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: Developers Gladman have won, on appeal, the right to build 250 houses on a greenfield site at Middleton St George in my constituency, at a time when the local residents are developing a neighbourhood plan. The development is against the wishes of local people and Darlington borough council. Local people feel that their views are being ignored and have called into question the...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal (20 January 2015)

Phil Wilson: I apologise for missing part of this debate, but I had duties to perform on the Serious Crime Bill this afternoon. When I was 20 years old Mrs Thatcher had just been elected for the first time, and it was the height of the cold war. Like any idealistic 20-year-old, I wanted to live in a peaceful world free of nuclear weapons and the threat of nuclear annihilation. I did not think it was too...

Business of the House: Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (15 January 2015)

Phil Wilson: First, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea West (Geraint Davies) on securing a debate on an issue that is important for the future economy of the UK and of Europe and for globalisation. We should broadly welcome the principles behind TTIP but obviously we need to take into consideration a lot of the issues raised by Members, especially the hon. Member for Richmond Park (Zac...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Service Prosecution Authority (Sex Offences) (6 January 2015)

Phil Wilson: Does the Minister agree that decisions to prosecute allegations of rape and sexual assault in the military should be subject to an independent review, given that only five cases of alleged rape were prosecuted in 2013?

I thank the Fishburn mums, Councillor Rachel Lumsdon, Michelle Barker, Sharon Graham, Cheryl Richardson, Claire Gibson, Tracey Cullen and Kim Wright for organising the petition. The petition...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 December 2014)

Phil Wilson: I welcome the news that the national formulation centre will be based in Sedgefield at the North East technology park in my constituency, which was opened 10 years ago by my predecessor. Is the Chancellor aware that the chemical and other industries in the Tees valley use Durham Tees Valley airport to reach global markets and that this could be affected by the devolution of air passenger duty...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Leaders (Recruitment) (1 December 2014)

Phil Wilson: Will the Minister join me in congratulating the leadership of Wellfield community school in my constituency, under head teacher Linda Rodham, on improving the school’s Ofsted rating from poor to good in four terms, and on the improvements we are seeing in qualifications year on year? Does that not prove that there is no smell of defeatism in the schools of east Durham?

Public Bill Committee: Specialist Printing Equipment and Materials (Offences) bill: Clause 1 - Offence of supplying specialist printing equipment knowing it will be used for criminal purposes (26 November 2014)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hood. The provisions are obviously not controversial in any way but I have been asked by the shadow Minister, my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon North, to raise one or two points. First, there is an issue around clause 1(3). What is the reasoning for the prison sentence being capped at 10 years and what is the relevant sentencing...

Isil: Topical Questions (28 October 2014)

Phil Wilson: The election results in Tunisia at the weekend are welcome and prove that secular and non-secular parties can co- exist in the middle east. As the Minister has welcomed those results, will he let the House know what aid the UK Government can give to Tunisia to ensure that that country becomes a beacon for democracy in the middle east?
