Outer London Congestion Charge — [Ms Christina Rees in the Chair] (23 Mar 2021)

Crispin Blunt: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. Ms Rees. I apologise that I have not been able to log in in the usual manner, so I am using my telephone. Sorry for the sub-optimal reception. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesham (Adam Holloway), I am grateful to my hon.

Integrated Review (16 Mar 2021)

Crispin Blunt: I strongly welcome the much greater coherence that this review will deliver to our national security strategy, both for our nation’s immediate defence and so that all its elements are working together towards an open international order and being a force for good in the world, supporting open societies, human rights and good governance. As part of this, can I continue to assume that we will...

Commonwealth Day 2021 — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (16 Mar 2021)

Friend the Member for Bridgwater and West Somerset (Mr Liddell-Grainger), who is proving to be an excellent chair of the CPA. I well remember the last time I attended a CPA conference in 2014, with him and other colleagues, in Cameroon. I had come from...

LGBT Conversion Therapy — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Mar 2021)

Crispin Blunt: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Elliot Colburn) on leading the debate so well, and I congratulate his Committee on securing it. I have two key points for the Government. The first is that we must legislate. Deliver the promise to protect in law. Use the work done in the Government Equalities Office before 2019. Use the examples elsewhere, particularly...

LGBT Conversion Therapy — [James Gray in the Chair] (8 Mar 2021)

Crispin Blunt: My apologies. The law gives the victims the opportunity to go to the police and, therefore, to have a weapon in their hand against the source of a conversion therapy. The state is on the side of victims’ freedom—the freedom that that individual is trying to take away from them. The second point I want to make is that such protection must include trans people. They are by far and away the...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill: Clause 1 - Payment of maternity allowance: Ministerial office (1 Mar 2021)

Crispin Blunt: Let me briefly try to set the context in which these amendments are being considered. This is an issue that goes to trans and women’s rights. It is a year since I was elected as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on global LGBT+ rights, which is the only LGBT rights APPG. While the title of the group is not meant to exclude the domestic LGBT rights agenda, it is a statement about...

UK Musicians: EU Visa Arrangements (19 Jan 2021)

Crispin Blunt: I thank you, Mr Speaker, and the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart) for providing the opportunity to help the Minister correct the misleading social media chatter among professional musicians and other performance artists, and from Opposition Members, about exactly where the responsibility lies for this situation.

Xinjiang: Forced Labour (12 Jan 2021)

Crispin Blunt: I am not sure that I was listening to the same statement as the shadow Foreign Secretary. I thought that, as a statement about our values, it was extremely clear. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that it is plainly morally unacceptable for British firms to profit from forced labour? We should also bear it in mind that there are now 1 million people extra-judicially interned in Xinjiang. Will...

Global Britain (11 Jan 2021)

Crispin Blunt: The importance of this subject, if not this abbreviated debate, with its précis-ed contributions, can be hardly overstated, but, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) noted, it goes much, much beyond trade. It remains somewhat vaguely defined by Her Majesty’s Government, so I hope this debate is part of a consultation process before the Prime Minister, supported by...
