Exiting the European Union: Economic Effect (14 Dec 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Paolo Gentiloni, the Italian Prime Minister, called on the EU this week to give the UK a “tailor-made” trade deal. Is it not precisely that sort of sentiment that would help all sectors if we concluded a trade deal that suited them?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (14 Dec 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Does my right hon. Friend agree that our leaving the European Union does not mean to say that we cannot co-operate with it at the very closest level on the environment, to lead the rest of the world?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I thank my hon. Friend and neighbour for giving way. Is he aware that since 2010 we have raised £160 billion from tackling tax evasion, yet the shadow Chancellor says that he will raise even more from tackling tax evasion. Does that not show that he is living in fantasy land?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: A417 Air Balloon Roundabout (30 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: What progress has been made on the A417 Air Balloon roundabout missing link upgrade.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: A417 Air Balloon Roundabout (30 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: My right hon. Friend knows that the south-west is a low-growth area. This is a highly important strategic national road scheme linking the south-west with the midlands and the Thames corridor. Does he agree that we need to get on and build this scheme as soon as possible?

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Wallasey (Ms Eagle), but her speech shows that the Labour party has learnt nothing about how to run a successful modern economy. The Chancellor referred in his speech to the Labour party increasing our national debt by £500 billion. The easiest thing in the world is to spend more and borrow more, which is precisely the situation the Labour...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The need to build more houses is about providing houses for those who cannot afford to buy and get on the housing ladder. There are lots of ways to do that in the affordable housing sector, such as affordable rent-to-buy, staircasing and many other methods. That is what we need to pay attention to. I shall say something about the planning system in a moment. The structure of house ownership...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The PAC has done a lot of work on customs and I am hopeful about new IT and the introduction of the customs declaration service to replace the existing IT service. Customs will experience a huge increase in the number of VAT declarations when we leave the EU, and it has a really difficult job policing goods that are wrongly coming into this country. Customs needs to take that into account. I...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Leaving the EU: Automotive Sector (7 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Mitsubishi’s headquarters are in Cirencester, where it employs 250 people and supports 113 dealerships throughout the UK. I wholeheartedly endorse my right hon. Friend’s remarks about needing to secure a Brexit agreement that supports the automotive sector, so that we can protect those jobs.

Exiting the European Union: Citizens’ Rights (2 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Does my hon. Friend agree that not only do EU citizens in this country need rapid reassurance of their status, but the very large number of British citizens living in a host of EU countries need the same reassurance? When does he expect to conclude this agreement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (24 Oct 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: When is the Treasury likely to give the sign-off to phase 2b of HS2, which you will know, Mr Speaker, runs through Cheshire?

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I know the Minister is running out of time, but may I caution him and anyone else about Swiss mediation, because we would not want them to mediate in the matter of Gibraltar?

Catalan Independence Referendum (10 Oct 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Nobody can condone any breaches of the rule of law, and we ask both sides to uphold it, but in this Parliament we must be very careful about taking sides. This is essentially a matter for the Spanish Government to resolve with the Catalans. It looks like there is a bit of good will on both sides, and we must urge them to come to a peaceful settlement.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The hon. Gentleman talks about the charter of fundamental rights. What is wrong with our Supreme Court, which is one of the most respected judicial systems in the world, providing those very same rights?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Have not further education budgets in Scotland been cut continually, which has led to a reduction of 152,000 young students in Scotland? Is it not high time to do what the Conservative party manifesto pledged to do, which is to reverse those cuts so that we give our young people a fair chance in life?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The hon. Lady is generous in giving way. She has talked about the most vulnerable students in Scotland and about being able to work and learn. Can she explain why the Scottish Government receive the apprenticeship levy yet sponsor only a very modest 30,000 apprenticeships, compared with the 3 million awarded in the UK during the last Parliament?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I am sure my hon. Friend is aware that our education exports last year exceeded those of our insurance industry, mainly fuelled by the excellence of our universities. If we do not fund them properly, we will not maintain world-class education at our universities.

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: I warmly welcome today’s announcement from my right hon. Friend. This is a real moment of celebration for those of us who have been campaigning with the f40 Group for years for a proper fair funding formula. Will she confirm to my governors and headteachers in Gloucestershire that by 2020 all schools currently receiving £3,800 per pupil will be receiving £4,800?
