Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Will the Minister give way?

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Do those potential obstacles to the frictionless trade my hon. Friend talks about include the loss of regulatory alignment, which is the topic of the week?

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: And more expensive fish and chips.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I completely agree: I think we were stuffed —if that is parliamentary language—when we joined. But I am not pessimistic about the common fisheries policy; I am realistic, and the hon. Gentleman must acknowledge that in the last 15 to 20 years, since we undertook these reforms, the picture has been improving.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: May I associate myself with the remarks of the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) about marine safety organisations and fishermen’s welfare organisations? I am thinking particularly of the Fishermen’s Mission, in a year which, thankfully, has been one of the better ones in terms of fatalities at sea. I do not know whether you have had an opportunity to watch the...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Indeed I was. Thankfully, plastics are one of the more visible aspects of marine pollution, because we see them washed up on our beaches and the Government are taking action, but a great deal else that goes on is still invisible. There is another big difference between land-based and sea-based environmental degradation. The sea is a place where the ancient human activity of hunting and...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Some do, but they tend to be quiet, because they are shouted down by Members of Parliament like the hon. Lady. If she has honest conversations with sensible fishermen who care about the long-term sustainability of their stocks, she will find that not all of them share her views, and it would be inaccurate to suggest that they do. As I was saying, some of our most valuable catches—and we...

Israel: Us Embassy (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Further to the Minister’s answer to the Liberal Democrat spokesman, the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake), who asked, “If not now, when?”, the Minister will be aware that one of the most grievous consequences of this decision is the impact on Palestinian public opinion. More and more people are giving up on a two-state solution. With...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pulse Fishing (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: What steps his Department is taking to tackle pulse fishing in EU waters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Pulse Fishing (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply. He will be aware, I am sure, of the concerns of fishers in parts of south-east England about the impact of Dutch electric pulse fishing on the stocks that, surprise surprise, move across national boundaries and are consequently shared. At the moment, we have a voice at the table and we can influence, alongside other, more conservation-minded...

The Hon. Member for Houghton and Sunderland South, Representing the Speaker’S Committee on the Electoral Commission, Was Asked: EU Referendum: Electoral Commission Resources (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: What assessment has been made of the adequacy of resources available to the Electoral Commission to undertake multiple investigations into the EU Referendum campaign.

The Hon. Member for Houghton and Sunderland South, Representing the Speaker’S Committee on the Electoral Commission, Was Asked: EU Referendum: Electoral Commission Resources (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I hope that the Speaker’s Committee will ensure that the Electoral Commission has all the resources it needs to do this important work. As well as investigating Russian interference, which the Electoral Commission’s chairman, John Holmes, confirmed it was doing yesterday, will my hon. Friend comment on whether the commission is examining whether there was any collusion between...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Public Services: West Midlands (6 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: The recognition by Donald Trump of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will do grave damage to the prospects for a just and lasting peace settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, which has been British, and indeed American, foreign policy for decades. Was she consulted about that announcement, and, if so, what did she say? Will she, here and now, unequivocally and clearly condemn it?

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: If the Secretary of State is serious about wanting a solution in the national interest that commands majority support in Northern Ireland, the rest of the United Kingdom and this House—I am delighted to say that that would seem to include my own Front Benchers—why does he not bring to this House a motion, on a free vote, on staying in the customs union and the single market?

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I echo the concerns expressed by the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) about the idea of breaking up the great western franchise because of the loss of ability to cross-subsidise from the more profit-making parts of the region to the more expensive parts in the far south-west. Exactly how much extra taxpayers’ money is he handing over to Stagecoach as a result of...

Leaving the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (28 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: The main issues dividing the House at this stage in the Brexit negotiations are our continued membership of the customs union and of the single market. Ministers say constantly that they do not want to reveal anything that could weaken their negotiating hand, but the Government have made their position clear and the European Union has accepted that the Government want a hard Brexit, so why...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy: Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (16 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I am delighted to welcome the long overdue reconstitution of this Committee and wish it well with its work. It is nice to see at least two of its members in the Chamber this evening.

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy: Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (16 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I do beg my hon. Friend’s pardon. I hope that one of the Committee’s early inquiries will be into Russian interference in the UK. As you know, Madam Deputy Speaker, I have been raising questions about this for the past year, during which the evidence of Russian interference in the American presidential election became credible and compelling. Until recently, the UK Government gave...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy: Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (16 Nov 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I completely agree with my right hon. Friend. Our legal framework is completely outdated for meeting the challenges that we face. There is a further issue that I hope the Government will address. They have promised to close the loophole in Northern Ireland, where political donations remain secret for historical reasons, but that is completely unacceptable. It is quite clear that Northern...
