Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (4 Sep 2018)

Richard Burden: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (4 Sep 2018)

Richard Burden: I endorse what the Secretary of State said in tribute to John McCain. May I put it to him that one of the most disreputable aspects of President Trump’s decision to end United States funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency is the fact that he dressed it up as part of a grand negotiating strategy towards what he calls the deal of the century, when in reality that decision...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation (18 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: I rise to present a petition from home educators in my constituency, led by Abigail Purkis and Anne Lyse. The wording of the petition is identical to previous petitions on this subject this evening. The petition states: The petition of residents of Birmingham Northfield, Declare that the “Home Education: Call for Evidence and revised DfE guidance” has been written following...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: I am grateful for the opportunity to say a few words in this debate, Mr Speaker. I wish to start by declaring an interest: I chair the all-party parliamentary motor group, which receives secretarial support from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, the Motorsports Industry Association and the RAC Foundation. I want to say a few words about why the stakes are so high for that...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU (18 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. If there is one thing that business says time and again it is that it wants certainty. It is the idea that, even if one’s objectives do not go quite right, one has something else there that can provide that certainty for the future. That “backstop” of customs union membership would have provided that much needed certainty. How can we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (10 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Points of Order (10 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I should be grateful if I could correct the record. Last Wednesday, when I rose to ask the urgent question on Khan al-Ahmar that you had kindly granted me, I had just heard that bulldozers had arrived at the village, and that demolition had started. I reflected that in what I said. Although demolition had indeed started at the nearby village of Abu Nuwar that...

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: I thank my right hon. Friend for her generosity in giving way once again. “Building a house is like killing 100 Arabs. Building a whole settlement is like killing 10,000 non-Jews.” Those are the words of settler leader Moshe Zar, not at an unofficial gathering but at an official Israeli Ministry of Education event, and reported in Ynetnews. Does that not indicate that incitement...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: (Urgent Question): I had hoped to ask the Foreign Secretary to make a statement on the imminent demolition of the village of Khan al-Ahmar and the threat of the forcible transfer of its residents, but in the light of developments this morning, I must instead ask the Foreign Secretary to make a statement on the demolition that has commenced at Khan al-Ahmar and the village of Abu Nuwar and on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: As we speak, bulldozers are flattening the village of Khan al-Ahmar and destroying its school, which was built with international donor support, and which provides education for about 170 Bedouin children from five different communities. The village of Abu Nuwar is also being destroyed today. People who live in these villages threaten no one. Their crime is to have homes on land that Israel...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: I will not ask my hon. Friend about the BDS campaign, but could I ask her at least to endorse the statement in the Foreign Office’s own advice to UK businesses? It states: “Settlements are illegal under international law, constitute an obstacle to peace and threaten to make a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict impossible. We will not recognise any changes to...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: The hon. Gentleman talks about Britain’s post-Brexit trading relationship with Israel. Does he agree that the definitions in the EU-Israel association agreement, particularly in relation to the settlements, should carry through into any bilateral trading relationship that Britain has with Israel? The trade preferences available under the EU-Israel association agreement do not extend to...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Richard Burden: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Yemen (11 Jun 2018)

Richard Burden: The Minister, once again, has said there can be no military solution to this conflict, but would not an attack on Hodeidah mean a military solution is precisely what the coalition is intending to impose, irrespective of the cost in human lives? If he is not able to secure the guarantees he has been seeking on access to Hodeidah and humanitarian supplies, what action will the UK Government...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Richard Burden: Connecting the regions and nations of the UK to opportunities and markets abroad has to be about more than how much they can have routes through a national hub in the south-east—however important that national hub is. Does the Secretary of State agree that airports such as Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and East Midlands for freight are international gateways in their own right, not...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (24 May 2018)

Richard Burden: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh), on securing this debate and the powerful way in which she has introduced it. I apologise to hon. Members, the shadow Minister and the Minister: I must get back to my constituency for an engagement later this afternoon, so depending on how long this...

Transport Emissions: Urban Areas (22 May 2018)

Richard Burden: The clean air strategy says that during the transition to zero emission vehicles “we will ensure the cleanest conventional vehicles are driven on our roads.” The Secretary of State will know that most people buy second-hand cars, not new ones. Under changes introduced by this Government, vehicle excise duty rates for used cars registered after March 2017 make no distinction...

UK Automotive Industry: Job Losses — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Richard Burden: Consumer incentives will have to be part of the package that we hope will incentivise the shift towards zero emissions. The Government have scaled back both the plug-in car grant and the grant available for the home charging of electric vehicles. Does that not send out a confused signal, if we are trying to encourage people to make that shift?
