Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Neil Carmichael: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips), who made an excellent speech. I entirely concur with her observations about domestic violence and sexual abuse. Those are appalling crimes and are utterly indefensible, and action must be taken to put them under a spotlight. We need to be surer in future that we can prevent such things from...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Neil Carmichael: That is a good point and I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, and of course one nation does mean a collection of the four nations in a United Kingdom. One nation is really an expression of how we feel about the people in our nation—how we want to give opportunity, how we want to make sure they can propel themselves forward, how we want to make sure nobody is left behind, how...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Our values as one nation are, of course, ones we would want everybody else to follow. We are talking about the United Kingdom, and the current position is that this Government have capacity and dominance over this country, but I also want to emphasise that what matters is that sense of fairness, of equality and of inclusion. The dominant home affairs topic in the contributions of my right...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Neil Carmichael: I certainly do, because we are going to have a UTC in my constituency very shortly. It will provide skills for people between the ages of 14 and 18 in the areas of advanced manufacturing, cyber studies and so on. We have secured the commitment, the site and the sense of purpose, as well as all the necessary commitments from partners. It will be located at Berkeley Green, on the site of a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Infrastructure Development (26 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Minister agree that the investment in infrastructure in my constituency will enable people to get to the new university technical college that is providing training for engineering and cyber-skills, which will lead in turn to substantial economic growth in Stroud and the surrounding area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Senior Civil Servants: Accountability (25 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: What steps he has taken to increase the accountability to Parliament and the public of senior civil servants.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Senior Civil Servants: Accountability (25 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Will the Paymaster General update the House on the role that Ministers might have in the performance review of permanent secretaries?

Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Clause 41 — The Pubs Code (24 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: I shall not linger long on this matter, although it has been very complicated and at times the debate has been robust. This is a victory for Parliament. The Bill has been properly contested and thoroughly debated, and the outcome is impressive. I want to signal my support for the amendments today and for the overall direction of the debate. During the passage of the Bill there were times when...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Cyber-security (24 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Paymaster General agree that the excellent news about a new university technical college at Berkeley Green in my constituency, providing skills and training in cyber, is perfectly timely in view of his statement and that it is likely to bring a real benefit to the Government Communications Headquarters?

Amendment of the Law (23 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: It is a great pleasure to participate in this debate. This is a good Budget not only because it is fiscally neutral, as my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) has said, but because it underlines the fact that the long-term economic plan is producing solid results. It has been endorsed by none other than President Obama, who has pointed out that the UK and US...

Amendment of the Law (23 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: I am not going to give way, because a lot of Members want to speak and it would be unfair to do so. We have to make sure that we deal with our debt. We are on the right course. The point I want to leave Members with is that it is essential that we continue to make our economy work for families, pensioners and people who need assistance, because that is how we will generate the capacity to pay...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Council (23 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Prime Minister agree that inward investment from the European Union, including Sartorius Stedim investing in my constituency, is a sign that Europeans believe in a reformed European Union and that we have a large number of allies in Europe who want to reform the EU in a constructive way, ready for a referendum?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Backbench Business — Shaker Aamer (17 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: It is a pleasure to participate in this debate, and I thank my right hon. Friend for allowing me to intervene. Is not the essence of this debate the rule of law and the application of fair rule of law? The absence of proper application of the rule of law is at the heart of this issue.

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Backbench Business — School Funding Formula (10 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: I want to draw the House’s attention to Ofsted’s excellent report on the long tail of underachievement, which identifies rural and coastal areas among those parts of the country facing difficulties, as is precisely reflected in the F40 group. Is that not one of the reasons we have to tackle this problem?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (10 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Chief Secretary agree that one key aspect of the long-term economic plan is investment in skills, and will he reassure the House that the Government will carry on doing that?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: EU Membership (4 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Minister agree that the reforms that the CBI and others are recommending for the single market, and for the European Union in general, are absolutely right for Wales and absolutely right for Britain, and that that should be a consideration for the referendum?

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: Will the shadow Minister tell the House whether or not the Labour Opposition agree with the 2% target?

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 March 2015)

Neil Carmichael: It is a great pleasure to speak in this debate and to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Reigate (Crispin Blunt), although I disagree with his conclusions about Trident. We need a deterrent of that type. I hope we will never need to use it, but having it will probably ensure that we do not need to use it. That is the key point about the deterrence of Trident. I am firmly of the view that...

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...
