Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Compulsory Jobs Guarantee (11 February 2015)

Neil Carmichael: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ealing North (Stephen Pound), not least because of his vivid imagination, which was on full display during his speech. I want to celebrate the fact that 30.8 million people are at work in this country, because that is a huge achievement of this Government. We should put to bed the nonsense that there are loads of inappropriate part-time...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day]: Apprenticeships (4 February 2015)

Neil Carmichael: I will set my remarks in the context of the successful Government industrial strategy, because it has driven the need for 83,000 additional engineers every year. I think it important to concentrate on our apprenticeship programme, which must start to fill that huge gap. The need is obvious. For example, 100 million has been invested in Airbus, in my constituency and elsewhere, to push...

Neil Carmichael: Does my right hon. Friend agree that to underpin that work, things such as GREEN at Berkeley—the Gloucestershire renewable energy, engineering and nuclear project—in which the Government have invested to improve training in engineering, energy and renewable energy, are exactly the way to ensure that we have jobs that are lasting, sustainable and productive?

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Food Banks (17 December 2014)

Neil Carmichael: We all recognise the full damage that the Labour Government did to public debt, but there is another area of debt of great concern—household debt, which stacked up radically and significantly during the last years of Labour government. Does the hon. Lady think that that had any impact on what is happening now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 December 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Will the Prime Minister join me in thanking businesses, schools, my Festomane team and the college for organising the week-long festival—week long—of manufacturing and engineering in my constituency, which was opened by the Prince of Wales? Does my right hon. Friend agree that by focusing on innovation and productivity this Government will deliver more exports and higher standards...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defences (11 December 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I am grateful to the Environment Agency and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for funding 750,000 of investment in protecting my constituency by improving and maintaining defences along the Severn estuary, notably at Lapper ditch at a cost of 500,000. What assurances can the Secretary of State give me and my constituents, however, that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (4 December 2014)

Neil Carmichael: With the renaissance of railways under way through this Government’s excellent work, will the Secretary of State consider letting my constituents travel from Stonehouse to Bristol without going via Swindon, by reopening an existing station from some time ago?

Neil Carmichael: What steps he is taking to improve transport infrastructure links between Wales and England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Infrastructure Investment (3 December 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Secretary of State agree that the Government’s investment in redoubling the Stroud to Swindon railway line, plus the promised investment in the A417 roundabout, add up to much improved links between the midlands and north Wales, which will be excellent for trade, manufacturing and tourism?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Road Investment Strategy (1 December 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I certainly welcome the improvements to the A417 Air Balloon roundabout; the Secretary of State will know from personal experience just how devastating congestion there can be. Does he agree that the delivery of improved logistics for manufacturers across my constituency is a powerful endorsement of this Government’s long-term economic strategy?

Opposition Day: [10th alloted day] — The Economy (26 November 2014)

Neil Carmichael: This debate has been fascinating, because there seems to be a parallel universe—Labour’s imagined panacea of brilliance when they were last in power, which they have failed to connect to reality. We are filling the gap by dealing with the deficit, the skills deficit and the infrastructure challenges. I want to concentrate on the last two points. First and most importantly, it is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (19 November 2014)

Neil Carmichael: What assessment has the Minister made of Labour’s proposals for a mansion tax on legacy giving, which is so appreciated by our charities?
