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...

School Governors (Appointment) (28 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require that school governors be appointed on the basis of experience relevant to the role; and for connected purposes.

Bill Presented — International Trade Agreements (Scrutiny): Clause 1 — How an MP becomes subject to a recall petition process (27 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: In signing this amendment I have signalled my support in principle of it, but I think it would be strengthened if the petition officer had before him a definition of what should represent justification for recall.

Neil Carmichael: The unwelcome scale of the surcharge does at least suggest that the European Commission has recognised the strength of the British economy, the value of the long-term economic plan, and the success of the Government’s approach to reducing our deficit. When the Prime Minister seeks to recalibrate the scale and pace, will he underline the need for the European Union to adopt the same...
