Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Apr 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: Charlie Foster, one of my young constituents—aged seven—has cystic fibrosis. When he has an attack, he feels as if he is breathing through a straw. I have never tried the test, but I will when I get back to my constituency. Young people are suffering very badly because a drug called Orkambi has not been licensed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. It increases the...

Children Act 1989 (Amendment) (Female Genital Mutilation) Bill [Lords]: (Business of the House): Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (14 Feb 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: I speak as a serving miner at one time, who had two broken legs. I wonder about this sometimes when I see in the newspapers about this Sir Philip Green and how he stole all the pensions, yet here we are, sitting here and the Government are stealing pensions. They should have their knighthoods taken off them as well.

Committees: Coty Site (Seaton Delaval) (21 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: And the county council.

Committees: Coty Site (Seaton Delaval) (21 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: I held an Adjournment debate on this subject just over a year ago, when this factory closed. The factory was originally owned by Shulton. It made Old Spice aftershave, which anyone who is as old as me will remember. This was the company that made that product, and still made it up until the factory’s closure. Of course, it went on to make Hugo Boss, which cost about 40 quid a bottle. The...

Committees: Coty Site (Seaton Delaval) (21 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: Yes. He has gone, anyway.

Committees: Coty Site (Seaton Delaval) (21 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: That is an example of why I will have to change my food habits. I do not know what the local Indian takeaway will do when I go in and ask for vegan food. I do not think it will work. I will have a try, anyway. There were a lot of jobs in the factory when it was run by Coty and Procter & Gamble, and they were all lost—at least 500 permanent and a lot of part-time jobs. The part-time jobs...

Committees: Coty Site (Seaton Delaval) (21 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: I am told that the main factory, which is good and has been invested in, would provide from 500 to more than 600 jobs for those preparing the food. As a knock-on, the rest of the factory would be made into start-up businesses. There are five or six small areas for start-up businesses, which is a good idea. I am told that if it takes off, we are talking about over 1,000 jobs. We should think...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has said following a recent survey that 4 million in-work workers are living in poverty. Is that not a damning report on nine years of this Tory Government, and will she stop being so hard and fast and call a general election?

Universal Credit (14 Jan 2019)

Ronnie Campbell: You gave billions to the banks.

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: Sixty per cent. of people in my Blyth Valley constituency voted to leave Europe in the referendum. I have been voting against Europe for all of the 31 years I have been in this place, as has my hon. Friend the Member for Bolsover (Mr Skinner). We do not like the idea of Europe because it is not a socialist Europe as far as we are concerned, and of course it is bureaucratic and undemocratic....

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: How can I follow that? That is exactly what I was going to say. Coming back to reality, when I first saw this treaty I knew what I was going to do. I was going to vote against it, and obviously I have not changed my mind. A lot of people who were perhaps going to vote for it have changed their mind and are now not going to vote for it. We have a treaty here that the Government will try to...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: Best of three—is that what happens?

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: We have had democracy, and democracy said that we were leaving. Yet again, it appears that democracy is only where we have two referendums, and that is just not on. We must take the result of the first referendum and stick by it. Turning back to the treaty, which is not very good, we will be in the backstop for donkey’s years. Do we think the EU is going to let us out of the backstop? Of...

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: Will the agreement that the Prime Minister has sought stop us joining a federal Europe, stop us joining the euro—never to join it—and stop the dictates and the stupid laws coming from Europe? The way I see it, we have got two feet in and one arm out.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: The Institute for Fiscal Studies has indicated that, by 2021-22, child poverty will have risen from 30% to 37%. When a Government treat their people like that, they are not worth their salt, but I suppose this Government never had any salt anyway. Should not the Government be ashamed of themselves for allowing that situation to develop for children?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Oct 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: In 2010, after the crisis of the banks, the national debt stood at £768 billion. Now that the Tories have been in for 10 years, albeit five of them with the wishy-washy Liberals, can the Prime Minister tell the House how much the debt is today?

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

Ronnie Campbell: What political and diplomatic steps he is taking to help resolve the conflict in Yemen.

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

Ronnie Campbell: Assad has been roundly condemned in this Parliament many times for dropping bombs on schools and hospitals, let alone the barrel bombs, so why are the Saudis getting off lightly in this case when they are acting like barbarians? The Minister should go and tell them that.

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Ronnie Campbell: Like many north-east MPs, I travel on the east coast line every week, and I am always being asked this question by passengers and staff: why on earth did the coalition Government get rid of a perfectly good company that put £1 billion over four years into the Treasury and give the franchise to Virgin-Stagecoach? That has never really been explained.
