Restoration and Renewal (16 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I did make it very clear in my speech that my preferred option was a full decant, but the world has changed as a result of covid. This is a different Parliament. The political imperative is different now, and I still say, as a surveyor, that it would be possible to do it in two halves.

Restoration and Renewal (16 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Madam Deputy Speaker, I am delighted to catch your eye in this debate. My remarks will be made with some trepidation, because the Chairman of the Finance Committee and the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee are in the Chamber. I have been a member of both Committees for about a decade; I have been a long-serving member. I also draw attention to my declaration in the Register of...

Restoration and Renewal (16 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am extremely grateful to the right hon. Lady for giving way. Is not the important point about the exchange that has just taken place that the Sponsor Body should be completely free to come up with a number of totally good options, from full decant to no decant at all, and then, as a result of that, come up with a properly costed project that Parliament can either accept or reject in a vote...

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: What steps her Department is taking to increase police funding.

Home Department: Police Funding (13 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Following the excellent announcement that my hon. Friend has given the House this afternoon, which goes a long way towards meeting our Conservative party pledge to recruit an extra 20,000 police officers, would he agree that the real importance of those police officers is that every criminal will know that it is much more likely their crime is going to be investigated and, if it is proved,...

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: What steps his Department is taking to help the tourism sector reopen safely as covid-19 lockdown restrictions are eased.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Tourism Sector: Reopening (9 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: My hon. Friend will know from his visit to the Cotswolds last Saturday how important tourism is. In particular, the arts are very important. The Barn theatre in Cirencester is a relatively new and highly innovative theatre that has done an awful lot during the covid period to keep people informed through social media about the Government guidelines. Will he ensure that that theatre and other...

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The coronavirus has hit young people in work and those about to enter the jobs market particularly hard. Will my right hon. Friend continue to build on his excellent package of announcements so far, so that young people have hope, encouragement and the very best prospects for the start of their working life?

Education Settings: Autumn Opening (2 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am sure that the Secretary of State agrees with the 15,000 parents in the Rock the Cotswolds group, who will be disappointed if any of their children cannot go back into school in September. Will he therefore consider doing two things? As well as issuing the comprehensive guidelines, he should ask every head to produce a back to school plan, preferably by the end of the summer term.

National Audit Office (1 Jul 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am delighted to catch your eye, Madam Deputy Speaker, and I warmly welcome the Prime Minister’s motion. I declare an interest in this subject, because although I was not part of the selection process at all, Dame Fiona is a constituent of mine. I know her and have met her on a number of occasions. She will make an excellent candidate, for the reasons I am about to give—my right hon....

New Homes (New Development Standards) (30 Jun 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require residential developers to meet minimum standards of provision for insulation, broadband connectivity and electric car charging points in new homes; and for connected purposes. Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to bring this Bill before the House. My Bill will underpin in statute the requirement for all new-build...

Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jun 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am sure everybody will be delighted that my right hon. Friend is back in this House in such robust form. He will be pleased to know that almost 50% of the children in Gloucestershire who qualify are back at school now, but their education has suffered over the past few months. Will he consider therefore doing two things? First, will he ask all teachers to set all their children and pupils a...

Covid-19: UK Border Health Measures (3 Jun 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: On behalf of a significant number of constituents whose jobs are affected in the travel, tourism and leisure business, may I ask my right hon.

Covid-19: School Reopening (13 May 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The guidance on the return of schools in the primary sector is very clear. May I ask my right hon. Friend to be very clear about the guidance for the secondary sector? For example, what does “face-to-face support” mean? Precisely which year groups will be able to return, and will that be on a voluntary basis, and does he agree that we need to provide maximum support for those taking GCSE...

Business of the House (23 Mar 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Mr Speaker, I , too, welcome your measures to try to keep all the staff and ourselves safe in this House. We are to go into recess some time in the near future. We do not know what is going to happen over the next few weeks, but undoubtedly there will be problems in all our constituencies. May I ask the Leader of the House to urge all his Front-Bench colleagues to treat any queries from any...

Economic Update (17 Mar 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Although I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the package he has worked very hard on, sadly, I received a phone call today from one of my employers, whose contract had been cancelled forthwith. He has had to lay off 1,000 people. There will be a lot of very anxious people tonight. Although they are probably entitled to employment and support allowance and universal credit, they will suffer...

Covid-19 (16 Mar 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The Secretary of State’s announcement today will mean that large numbers of elderly and vulnerable people will be required to self-isolate.
