The petition states: The Petition of residents of the Sedgefield constituency, Declares that the Petitioners object to the over-development of the village of Middleton St George and...

County Durham Plan — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (3 March 2015)

Phil Wilson: The Minister mentioned 4.5 billion in investment. Can we make it clear that 2.7 billion of that is for the intercity express programme? The trains will be built at Newton Aycliffe, but that 2.7 billion is for maintaining the trains as well as building depots in Doncaster, Swansea, Bristol and London, and it is being made available over 27.5 years. Not all that investment is...

County Durham Plan — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (3 March 2015)

Phil Wilson: The objective of trying to generate 30,000 jobs between now and 2030 is in line with what the Chancellor said on Friday about generating 50,000 jobs between now and 2020. If the figures for the county over 15 years are out of kilter, so are the Chancellor’s figures. That is why the Government need to look at this matter closely; it affects not only the growth patterns for the county,...

County Durham Plan — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (3 March 2015)

Phil Wilson: Hitachi first came to the UK to look for a site to build a factory. It looked at 42 locations, and Newton Aycliffe was not one of them. Much of the reason it selected it was Durham county council.

County Durham Plan — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (3 March 2015)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to debate this important issue under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. At the outset, I want to inform the Minister of the two main questions I want to ask this afternoon so she has plenty of time to think about her response. First, the planning inspector’s interim report into the County Durham plan states that one of the council’s options is to suspend further...

County Durham Plan — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (3 March 2015)

Phil Wilson: I agree. My hon. Friend anticipates my next point, which is about job growth in the area. It is about not only attaining a 73% activity rate among people of working age, because if that continues and there is no jobs growth, the local economy will ultimately stagnate. The inspector accepts the council’s methodology for developing population projections. The council wants to increase the...

County Durham Plan — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (3 March 2015)

Phil Wilson: I agree with my hon. Friend. It seems to me that the planning inspector is not taking into consideration the aspirations and ambition of the county and the potential for the county to go ahead and create high-value, strategic jobs that are important, not just to the economy of County Durham and for the region, but to the country. Last year, it was announced that the region’s first...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: I have asked the Prime Minister this question before and he did not answer: how many jobs should an MP have?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: Can the Prime Minister confirm that between May 2010 and December 2013 he never once had a conversation with Stephen Green about allegations of tax avoidance by UK-based HSBC clients?

Transport (Tees Valley) (10 February 2015)

Phil Wilson: Will the Minister give way?

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: If he will list his official engagements for Wednesday 4 February.

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...

Phil Wilson: What recent discussions he has had with the Service Prosecution Authority on its effectiveness in prosecuting rape and other sexual offences in the armed forces which took place (a) in the UK and (b) overseas.

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?
