Leaving the EU: Chemicals Regulation — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (1 Feb 2018)

Nigel Evans: I remind the Minister that it is customary to allow a couple of minutes at the end for Mary Creagh to sum up.

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: My hon. Friend will be pleased to learn that I am not about to make a bid for the Ribble Valley. Particularly if we get more than one spaceport, that will be a great boost to industries and SMEs that are interested in space. Some may be involved in contracts with the European Space Agency, to which we gave £1.4 billion in additional funding from 2016 for five years. Does my hon. Friend...

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: I am more past than future, that is for certain, but I am as excited as my right hon. Friend about the potential for space development, particularly in a multi-billion industry in the UK, which is growing at an incredible 8% a year. As we have the desire to put more satellites into space, so that we can do all these wonderful things he has spoken about, is he happy and content that the Bill...

Space Industry Bill [Lords] (15 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: I am a small shareholder in ManSat and president of the parliamentary space committee. The Minister said that satellite technology is one of this country’s specialities, but is he as concerned as I am by what I read in the newspapers about British companies being frozen out of bidding under the Galileo project owing to Brexit?

Business of the House (11 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: Back to railways, Mr Speaker. My hon. Friend knows that the Secretary of State for Transport is keen to open some of the closed railway lines around the country, as my hon. Friend was when he was a Transport Minister. Will it be possible to get an early statement on what those lines may be? Many people in the Ribble Valley are keen to have the Clitheroe to Hellifield line reopened, which...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: Does the hon. Lady believe that there will be an opportunity in future deals for value-added goods such as chocolate and processed coffee to come into the UK from continents such as Africa, rather than just the raw materials coming in and us adding the value?

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: The British people voted to leave the European Union, and they were told before and during the referendum that leaving the European Union meant leaving the single market—[Interruption.] Yes, they were. The Prime Minister at the time, David Cameron, said exactly that. The hon. Gentleman clearly wants to use smoke and mirrors to drag Wales back into some form of European union in which we...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: The hon. Lady will have heard from the Secretary of State that our exports have increased dramatically since the decision of the British people to leave the EU. What aspects of the rolling over of the trade deals that already exist between the EU and other countries does she object to in this Bill?

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Nigel Evans: There has been much speculation over several weeks about the possibility of the United Kingdom staying in the single market or the customs union. The Secretary of State talks about an exciting world in which we will be able to do trade deals with a number of other countries. Would we be able to do that if we stayed in the single market or the customs union?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Dec 2017)

Nigel Evans: This morning I met Liam Allan, the young student whose life was put on hold for two years and who had to endure torture until his case collapsed last week. This week another case collapsed because of a lack of disclosure. Does the Prime Minister agree that when allegations are made there should be a full investigation, and that full disclosure should be made to the Crown Prosecution Service...

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Nigel Evans: I know I can be a little slow at times, but I am finding it incredibly difficult to discern what the policy of Her Majesty’s Opposition is to Brexit, as it changes depending on whom I am listening to—

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Nigel Evans: indicated dissent.

Exiting the European Union: Economic Effects: Customs Union (14 Dec 2017)

Nigel Evans: Surely one of the assessments that the Government have made is how much money we will save by not having to pay to access the customs union, as well as the impact on all sectors of industry in this country of being able to do our own trade deals around the world.

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

Nigel Evans: China is a massive market. Does the Secretary of State agree that the open skies policy that was recently agreed with China, increasing the number of flights by 50% to 150 a week, will be a great boost to business throughout this country when it comes to doing trade deals with China?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Nigel Evans: The right hon. Lady talked about a delay of perhaps a couple of months, but if the treaty is not right in the eyes of this Parliament, a couple of months could turn into a couple years, and, indeed, some people would like it to be a couple of decades. Therefore, she talks about a meaningful vote, but what about the meaningful vote of the people of this country, who voted last June to leave...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Nigel Evans: I would not call the right hon. Gentleman a remoaner, but he is a Liberal Democrat; I am just wondering which bit of the democrat in him does not accept the result of the referendum, that 52% of the country voted to leave and that the Prime Minister made it absolutely clear that we would leave if that is what the people voted for. Let me remind him that 41% of his constituents voted for him,...
