Report on Recent Terrorist Attacks (5 Dec 2017)

Edward Davey: I strongly agree with the Home Secretary that all our thoughts are with those affected by and suffering from these vile crimes. In September, the Met Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, said that counter-terrorism work “puts a strain not just on counter-terror police but neighbourhood officers and all our officers and staff”. Does the Home Secretary agree with the commissioner?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (5 Dec 2017)

Edward Davey: Will the Minister confirm to the House that it is his policy that the European Court of Human Rights will still have jurisdiction over Britain after we leave the EU?

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: I am prepared to accept the Government’s stated position that they will ensure that many EU citizens living here will stay after this negotiation. I am sure that that is the case. However, I hope that the Minister will have the frankness and honesty to accept the facts and figures that show that many EU nationals have already left since the referendum, which is damaging many aspects of...

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: It is not wrong. I have shown the figures to the Minister. I have talked to businesses and to the local hospital in Kingston, and they are all worried about recruitment and people having gone home.

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: I am afraid that those figures show what has happened in the past. If the Minister talked to businesses and to people working in the health service, he would know that the position is changing significantly and quickly. He is in a completely ridiculous world if he thinks that that is not the case. I want to challenge the Minister. If he is going to welcome EU nationals, he and his colleagues...

State Pension Age: Women: EU Nationals (29 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: rose—

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: I welcome today’s big message that our railways work better when track and train are operated together and the fact that the Secretary of State is now trying to correct the big mistake in the original rail privatisation, when his party separated track and train ownership. May I ask him, on behalf of my constituents in Surbiton, to consider the urgent safety case for a new staircase at...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: Does the right hon. Lady agree that British companies—our new entrepreneurial companies —would like a nice big market to sell their goods to, on our doorstep?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: This Budget had one redeeming feature: it was honest. It was honest about the weak growth prospects and how weak our economy is. I hope that the whole House will reflect on these dismal forecasts, because they have dramatic implications for our economy, people’s livelihoods, public finances and services, and the way in which we debate the issue of the day—namely, Brexit. Look at...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the real story behind this Budget was the growth forecast, which will impact not only the borrowing he is talking about, but public spending and, frankly, the whole shape of the British economy and British society in the years ahead? Do we not need an urgent debate on how we really raise that growth rate? The industrial strategy was simply not up to that...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: Will the hon. Gentleman give way now?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: I am very grateful to the hon. Gentleman. I was trying to tee him up before. Given the growth forecast and the shocking impact that the situation will have on people’s incomes and the public finances, is not now the worst possible time to be leaving the European Union, the customs union and the single market? Is this not the most disastrous economic decision, given the economic forecasts?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: The Secretary of State talks about giving certainty to businesses and investors. Does he agree that the contracts for difference regime can be used to bring in zero-subsidy CfDs to give real certainty to people wanting to invest in our renewable energy? Will he commit to considering the case for zero-subsidy CfDs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration Detention Centres (20 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: Whether her Department has commissioned research into alternatives to the use of immigration detention centres.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Immigration Detention Centres (20 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: Given that more than half of migrants leaving detention centres are released into the community and not removed, that monitoring illegal immigrants in the community costs more than 80% less than detention, and the sheer inhumanity of Britain’s immigration detention regime, many believe that it is now time to look at alternatives that actually work better in other European countries....

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (20 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: I will try, Mr Speaker. Has the Home Secretary read last month’s statistical bulletin on crime figures in England and Wales, which looks at the problem of the difference between recorded crime and the outcomes of the crime survey? If not, will she read it and send me her comments?

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: I thank all Members who have contributed to the debate. The Minister will have heard concern from Members on both sides and from the grassroots and our constituencies that this is having a real impact on people’s lives and our communities. He will also have heard that there is huge support for the model of community policing; and, to be fair to the Minister, he acknowledged that. Many...

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Edward Davey: May I push the Minister on the difference between what the crime survey and police recorded crime are telling us and the lessons that he, as a Minister, is drawing from that? I sought to argue in my contribution that there is a real concern that the previous trend of declining crime that we saw for quite a number of years has changed. If it has, that demands that this House and this...
