School Uniform Costs — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (5 Nov 2019)

Paul Beresford: I am interested in what the hon. Lady is saying, because I have also had people contact me. One lady said that supermarkets are an ideal place to go because she can get matching clothes. I was surprised to find that Tesco used to embroider badges on at parents’ request. It does not do it now, but the supplier will do it. Parents pay £4 for a pair of trousers, instead of something...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Beresford: Perhaps the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan) will take an interest in the new immigration Bill. It will come as a big surprise to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, to learn that I am an ethnic minority immigrant. I cheer for England in Japan, but I put my money on the All Blacks! I came here as a newly graduated health professional just before the UK entered the common market. I...

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Paul Beresford: As my hon. Friend might guess, I am delighted by the announcement about Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, which will find favour with hon. Members on both sides of the House. We have been talking about it for a long time, and this is the first genuine movement. I have a tiny, slightly off-the-wall additional request. As my hon. Friend is aware, I have a declared interest in...

Iran (25 Sep 2019)

Paul Beresford: Iran’s destabilising activity is fairly broad geographically. As my right hon. Friend knows, I have a distant, declared interest in Libya, where there is a battle going on between General Haftar and the Government of National Accord. There are some dubious forces behind General Haftar, including, I understand recently, 100 mercenaries from Russia. Is there any indication that Iran’s...

Intentional Unauthorised Development (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Beresford: There has recently been a meeting of every single local authority in Surrey. The Chancellor set it up and a number of other MPs went there. They would disagree totally with the Minister that we think that the legislation is adequate. It is inadequate.

Intentional Unauthorised Development (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Beresford: As part of the consultation, will the Minister take it from me that we would like him to consider the ability for local authorities to step in quickly and put in place a legally binding stop notice on the development as the trucks are driving in, the caravans and kids are arriving and the green belt is being destroyed?

Intentional Unauthorised Development (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Beresford: As the Minister is aware, I have had considerable difficulty in my constituency. Some of the sites have been fought over for 14 to 18 years. I have a very aggressive one at the moment. Perhaps the Minister might consider enabling the local authority to put a stop order on any development at all, emphasised and backed by the courts.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill (21 May 2019)

Paul Beresford: I thank the Leader of the House for her introduction—it was a clear and useful indication of why we are here to debate this matter—and I particularly thank my right hon. Friend the Member for Meriden (Dame Caroline Spelman), who has obviously gone through the Bill carefully. I listened to the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart) with interest, and I mostly...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill (21 May 2019)

Paul Beresford: As the hon. Gentleman will be aware, a lot of work is going on and firms are doing exactly that—bringing in apprentices and training them in specialties. I know that because one of the major firms is in my constituency.

Sittings in Westminster Hall: Travellers in Mole Valley (25 Apr 2019)

Paul Beresford: Will that apply where the individuals concerned claim to own or actually own the land, or just on public-type land or other people’s land?

Sittings in Westminster Hall: Travellers in Mole Valley (25 Apr 2019)

Paul Beresford: I thank the Minister for being here as the last man standing. It is an awful position, one I used to have, too. However, this is an opportunity to raise a vexing issue that has plagued my constituency and Surrey as a whole. We are now in what we call the summer Traveller season; it is like a disease. Mole Valley constituency consists of Mole Valley District Council south of the M25 and the...

Brunei: Loan Charge (4 Apr 2019)

Paul Beresford: I feel a little cautious in this debate as I do not have the full knowledge or experience of many Members here and I do not have many cases in my constituency. I have had a considerable number of cases over the years in which I have had to deal with HMRC. Contrary to what many people have said, I have found that individual approaches to individual taxation experts in HMRC have been extremely...

Brunei: Loan Charge (4 Apr 2019)

Paul Beresford: I will give way just the once and very quickly.
