AUKUS: Impact on Anglo-Chinese Relations — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (20 Oct 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I would question what the hon. Gentleman says about nuclear proliferation. If these submarines were going to carry nuclear weapons, he would possibly have a case, but these are only nuclear-powered submarines, and nuclear power is a relatively well-known technology that is certainly not covered by the treaties.

AUKUS: Impact on Anglo-Chinese Relations — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (20 Oct 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Thank you, Mr Davies, for allowing me to take part in this debate. I would like to thank the Minister; she and I have not always agreed on everything, but we have moved on, and I am glad to see her here. I give sincere congratulations to my hon. Friend the Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski); his was one of the highest-quality speeches that I have heard in this Chamber. This...

AUKUS: Impact on Anglo-Chinese Relations — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (20 Oct 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: May I congratulate my hon. Friend on an outstanding speech? Indeed, it is one of the most outstanding speeches that I have heard in this Chamber in my time in Parliament. I will just inform my hon. Friend and the House that when I was a shadow Foreign Office Minister I studied the issue of the Diego Garcian people. When we gave Mauritius independence, they were fully compensated—the...

Covid-19 Vaccinations: 12 to 15-year-olds (13 Sep 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I have great respect for my hon. Friend as the vaccines Minister, but I find what he has announced this evening deeply troubling. I think it will pit parents against parents and parents against teachers, with a poor child stuck in the middle wondering what to do. There will be very little benefit to the child, and there is a lack of long-term data on the potential harm. However, what concerns...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: In 2007, the then Labour Government sent a small cross-party group of Members of Parliament to Afghanistan, and I was one of them. We were in Lashkar Gah when a group of our soldiers came back, having lost one of their number, and we could see that the psychological stress on those soldiers was immense. I say to the Minister for Defence People and Veterans, my hon. Friend the Member for...

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy if he will make a statement on the sale of the Newport Wafer Fab semiconductors plant in Duffryn, Newport, to the Chinese-owned firm Nexperia.

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee (17 Jun 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I congratulate the Chairman and his Committee on producing a very comprehensive and constructive report on this all-encompassing subject. In the report, he says: “We think the Government’s abandonment of its proposed formula for determining housing need is the correct decision.” For many areas, such as the Cotswolds, the formula would have produced a staggering 144% increase in housing...

Covid-19 Update (14 Jun 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Mr Speaker, this is an unexpected surprise, and I am sure it is for the Secretary of State as well. I am sure that he will be interested in my question. Ultimately, these decisions are a matter of judgment. Can he publish that data on the risk to the health service and the risk to individuals of death, as opposed to those on the social harm and the harm to businesses? Can he therefore tell us...

Aviation, Travel and Tourism Industries (10 Jun 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am delighted to see my hon. Friend and neighbour, the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, my hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Robert Courts), at the Dispatch Box, and I am sure he will agree with me on one point. While Perthshire and Staffordshire vie for visitors, the Cotswolds are an even more special place to visit, with their architecture, landscapes and hospitality. Last year,...

Education Recovery (7 Jun 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I warmly welcome my right hon. Friend’s enthusiasm for making this package of catch-up measures work. In thanking all our teachers and educators for what they have done during the pandemic, does he agree that it will be vital to get those educators to commit to the package—to the extra time that they need to spend in the classroom from the early years right up to university—to make sure...

Debate on the Address: Safe Streets for All (17 May 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Madam Deputy Speaker, it was wonderful to see Her Majesty in the other place last Tuesday giving the Gracious Speech, announcing the Government’s priorities for this year, and I am grateful to you and to the House for giving me the opportunity to participate in this important debate. We have today reached step 3 of the road map out of lockdown, and as we recover from this dreadful year...

British Meat and Dairy Products (28 Apr 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ghani. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Devon (Selaine Saxby) on securing this timely debate during Great British Beef Week. I draw attention to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, as one of the few practising farmers in the House. The Cotswolds has one of the most sensitive landscapes...

Financial Services (26 Apr 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Who will be responsible for maintaining the list? Will it be Her Majesty’s Treasury? What will be the procedure to review it so that countries may come on to it and existing countries may come off it if they no longer meet the criteria?

Speaker’s Statement (13 Apr 2021)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I know the family will appreciate your words. As the House knows, Cheryl passed away on 4 April, courageously fighting against the odds with cheerfulness and bravery. Cheryl, my right hon. Friend the Member for Ribble Valley (Mr Evans), now a Deputy Speaker, and I came into the House together 29 years ago and became firm friends. I attended the funeral of...
