Sitting adjourned.

International Trade: Trade and Investment: India (13 Sep 2018)

Nigel Evans: The potential for growth in trade between India and the UK is enormous and should be backed up by further trade missions. However, may I suggest that the next trade mission should take Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury? He would be able to talk to some of India’s incredible entrepreneurs and perhaps learn about wealth creation and the fact that greater trade between India and...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. Does he agree that the invasion of Crimea was the tipping point? Russia’s taking of two enclaves in Georgia—South Ossetia and Abkhazia—was when the international community should have acted. The invasion of Crimea followed because of our supine response when Russia invaded those parts of Georgia: we refused to do anything.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: As a proud Welshman and a proud Brit, I say, “Come on England!” Crime is on the increase in the Ribble Valley, including antisocial behaviour orders, but the response from the Labour police and crime commissioner is to close front desk services at police stations, including Clitheroe police station. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we do not better protect the public by...

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: I do not religiously read every tweet that emanates from the hands of President Trump, so I do not know what his views are on the Chequers deal, but the Prime Minister is meeting him later this week. Will she be discussing the exciting potential for trade deals with the USA, and does she believe there is anything in this Chequers deal that could possibly inhibit that trade deal?

Opposition Day - [15TH Allotted Day, 1ST Part]Opposition Day: Claim of Right for Scotland (4 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: The right hon. Gentleman talks about referendums. I am getting a bit confused—it does not take a lot, I admit—but are we talking about the referendum on 23 June 2016, when the British people voted to leave the European Union and, if they had decided to remain in the European Union, would those powers still be in Brussels, to this day?

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: Order. As Members can see, there is considerable interest in taking part in this debate. I will not impose a time limit at this moment, but I ask hon. Members to show restraint and stick to four to five minutes in order that everyone is able to speak.

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: Michel Barnier tells us that we should not cherry-pick, yet we import 850,000 cars from Germany every year, we drink more champagne than the French and we import a lot of cherries from Spain. We will want to continue to do that post-Brexit. Does my right hon. Friend believe as I do that it is in the interests of the EU, where a lot of countries have high unemployment, to do a trade deal with...

Saddleworth Moor and Tameside: Ongoing Fire (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: I pay tribute to the firefighters from Ribble Valley and from Chorley who are fighting those fires on the moors. I also pay tribute to those from the constituency of the Under-Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, my hon. Friend the Member for Rossendale and Darwen (Jake Berry)—

Saddleworth Moor and Tameside: Ongoing Fire (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Evans: And Pendle. The list is endless. We pay tribute to the firefighters’ courage and dedication, particularly given the heat they are also having to endure. As the Minister knows, there are many summer festivals at this time, and people release lanterns that use candles to make them rise. Clearly, such things are a fire hazard in themselves, so will he look to ban them? Will he also make it...

Backbench Business: Geothermal Energy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Nigel Evans: Before I call Helen Goodman, let me say that Members may, in view of the Ascot weather, remove items of clothing as they deem appropriate.

Exiting the European Union: Northern Ireland Border (14 Jun 2018)

Nigel Evans: When we talk about the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, are we putting the cart before the horse? Surely we need to focus on UK-EU customs arrangements so we know exactly where we are. We buy 850,000 German cars every year, and £3 billion of flowers and bulbs from the Dutch. Irrespective of what Wetherspoons did yesterday, we still drink more Champagne than the French and...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Nigel Evans: As someone who has witnessed the vaccination, via the Department for International Development, of many babies under a tree in Uganda with the International Development Committee, may I say what a privilege it has been to chair this debate? Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered the economic effect of vaccinations in developing countries. Sitting suspended.
