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)

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?

Petitions: Free school transport (Fishburn) (8 December 2014)

Phil Wilson: This petition is on behalf of 426 people of Fishburn in my constituency who are opposed to children from the village paying for school transport to their feeder school, Sedgefield community college. 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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 November 2014)

Phil Wilson: Can the Prime Minister envisage any circumstances in which he would lead the no campaign in an EU referendum?

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?

Bills Presented: Ukraine, Middle East, North Africa and Security (10 September 2014)

Phil Wilson: If there was ever a time for Britain—the United Kingdom—to play its part in the world as a major, respected and democratic force, it is now. I want to make some comments about the situation in Iraq and Syria, and then say something about what I consider to be the major threat that the country faces in helping the middle east and other problem areas in the world. The situation in...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: I have some questions for all the witnesses about the anti-slavery commissioner. The function of the proposed anti-slavery commissioner is restricted to galvanising law enforcement and identifying victims. Should the commissioner also have responsibility for victim support?

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: I think part of the answer to that question has sort of pre-empted what I am going to ask next about the independence of the commissioner. I want to ask all three of you so I might as well roll these three questions into one. Do you think that, as it is laid down in the Bill, the commissioner is sufficiently independent from Government? Clause 34(4) says that the commissioner’s...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: Kate, do you want to add anything?

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 July 2014)

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: I want to ask both witnesses a couple of questions on the anti-slavery commissioner. The functions of the proposed commissioner are restricted to galvanising law enforcement and identifying victims. Should the commissioner also have responsibility for victim support, do you think?

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: Do you think the commissioner’s role is sufficiently independent from Government, as laid down in the Bill?

Points of Order (8 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Yesterday, I raised a point of order about a ministerial visit to my constituency of which I was not given prior notice. The hon. Member for Stockton South (James Wharton) was also at the visit without informing me in advance. The hon. Gentleman said in the House last night that his role “was to drop off my hon. Friend the Minister”.—[...

Point of Order (7 July 2014)

Phil Wilson: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I seek your guidance. The Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the hon. Member for Great Yarmouth (Brandon Lewis), visited the new Hitachi factory in my constituency this morning to make a Government announcement. He was joined by the hon. Member for Stockton South (James Wharton), but neither of them informed me of their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: European Council (30 June 2014)
