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?

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.

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...

Friend the Minister”.—[...

Point of Order (7 July 2014)

Member for Stockton South (James Wharton), but neither of them informed me of their...

Bill Presented: First World War (Commemoration) (26 June 2014)

Phil Wilson: I congratulate the hon. Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) on his maiden speech, which I thought was excellent. I, too, welcome him to the House.

In my constituency of Sedgefield, it is no different. From Hurworth on...
