Amendment of the Law (24 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: If what the hon. Gentleman is saying is true and he has the answer to everything we did wrong, why did the current Chancellor—the then shadow Chancellor—agree with our expenditure plans in 2008?

Phil Wilson: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Amendment of the Law (24 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: I will first touch on the housing market and the role of housing benefit, and then move on to the Government’s proposals for pension reform, because they are linked. According to the Office for Budget Responsibility report, the largest driver in the growth of housing benefit has been a growing case load in the private rented sector. The share of housing benefit spend in the sector is...

Amendment of the Law (20 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that today, Hitachi has announced that its global rail building capacity is moving to the UK? Is he aware that the factory where the trains will be built is in my constituency, and that it was a Labour Government who had the wherewithal to bring about the intercity express programme to ensure that Hitachi came to this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (20 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: May I join the Secretary of State in welcoming Hitachi’s announcement that it is moving its global rail operation to the UK? That will create a lot of jobs in my constituency. Will he acknowledge two things, however? The first is that Hitachi had identified Newton Aycliffe as its manufacturing base before the last election because of Labour’s intercity express programme, and the...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: I have seen the coverage of Alex Salmond’s speech, too. It is being described as an emotional appeal. It always seems to be emotional, but it never gets down to the nuts and bolts of the economics and the impact on people’s lives.

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: Can the hon. Gentleman just answer this simple question? When it loses the referendum, what will be the point of the SNP?

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: People leaving southern Ireland and going to Belfast do not have to show their passports, but if they continue their journey to Liverpool by ferry, they do.

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Weir. This issue is of rising importance for the north-east of England. In six months’ time, the Scottish people will decide whether they want to remain part of Britain. Although it is right that that decision should be taken by them, it is not right to think that it will not affect the rest of Britain as well, especially the...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: The hon. Gentleman is not necessarily comparing like with like. Scotland and England, and the rest of the UK, have a shared history that goes back 300 years. I read something recently on the blog “Open Democracy” by Gerry Hassan and James Mitchell, two pro-separatist academics based at the university of West Scotland and Edinburgh university. They state that the metropolitan...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: The hon. Gentleman has raised the point that I was going to make next with some statistics. At present, more than 23 million vehicles, 15 million tonnes of freight and 7 million rail passengers a year cross the border between England and Scotland in both directions. If Scotland becomes an independent state, the current border will become an international border. Scotland will have to take...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: I think there will be a lot of consensus on this side of the argument. We have a lot of common ground among all parts of the UK. Why we would want to disrupt and dismantle that, I do not know. It can only cause additional burdens to the Scottish and English people who currently take for granted the journey across the border. If Scotland managed to renegotiate entry into the EU, it would have...

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: The hon. Gentleman is correct. Little by little, hon. Members are dismantling the whole argument for independence.

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: Go on, then.

[Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] — Scotland and North-east England Post-2014 (4 March 2014)

Phil Wilson: My right hon. Friend says that Scotland would be obliged to join. The position of the Scottish National party is that once it believed Scotland should join the euro. Then it wanted Scotland to have its own currency, and now it wants to stay with the pound. Can SNP members make up their mind? It is not possible. They want to have their cake and eat it. Thousands of north-easterners would have...
