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,...

Nigel Evans: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

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

Nigel Evans: The hon. Gentleman will remember that the former Chancellor said during the referendum campaign that should we leave the European Union, we would be leaving the single market. That was made absolutely explicit. The hon. Gentleman has spoken about future referendums, and he wants a second referendum in Scotland. Should the Scottish people vote in such a referendum by 52% to 48% to leave the...

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

Nigel Evans: Did the right hon. Gentleman receive a pamphlet—paid for by the taxpayer—from the Government during the referendum, on the back of which they stated that they would carry out the wishes of the people via the vote in the referendum? Does he believe that by having a fixed date, which everybody knows, we will deliver what the people voted for?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: GPs: Patient Access (14 Nov 2017)

Nigel Evans: One village medical practice in my constituency, in Slaidburn, was under threat a few years ago, but fortunately it was saved. It does tremendous service to the local community. If it was not there, the elderly patients would have to travel over 40 minutes to Clitheroe, and there is no capacity to take any extra people there. Will the Secretary of State ensure that practices like Slaidburn...

Family Planning Clinics: Public Order Legislation (7 Nov 2017)

Family Planning Clinics: Public Order Legislation (7 Nov 2017)

Nigel Evans: I will assist the hon. Lady. Two people have indicated that they would like to speak. The wind-up speeches will start at 5.08 pm with Diane Abbott and ten minutes later the Minister will speak. You will have two minutes to conclude, so perhaps you could give enough time for the other two speakers.

Exiting the European Union: Leaving the EU: Agreement (2 Nov 2017)

Nigel Evans: It was very wise of the Government to prepare dossiers on the impact of Brexit on sectors in the United Kingdom. I assume that the European Union has done something similar regarding what it is going to do when it loses £10 billion to £12 billion a year. Indeed, the German Government might have prepared a dossier about the impact on their car industry, and the French might have...

Education Funding: Wirral (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: Order.

Education Funding: Wirral (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: Order. I remind Angela Eagle that she does have a minute or so at the end to wind up, so she has an opportunity

South Woodford Post Office — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: Order. Before the right hon. Gentleman warms up, I suspend the session for 15 minutes while a Division takes place in the House. Sitting suspended for Divisions in the House. On resuming—

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Keighley (John Grogan), who is such a champion of the pub and beer industry, and to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. During the last vote, I bumped into the Chancellor of the Exchequer. I said, “Chancellor, come down to Westminster Hall and listen to the debate on the beer duty,” and he smiled. I assume he is not here because...

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: The Treasury really has to take this issue on board. Business rates, the living wage and other costs that are heaped on the brewing and pub industry mean that this has to be looked at carefully. Pubs are closing. I mentioned Alex Coward, who employs 45 people in the local community, and we represent a semi-rural, or rural, area. These are vital jobs in those areas. A lot of pubs play music...

Modern Slavery Act 2015: Global LGBT Rights (26 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: It is a great honour to follow the hon. Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy). I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Arundel and South Downs (Nick Herbert) on moving the motion. We have come a long way over the years—this country, this Parliament and even myself. Growing up in Swansea, I wondered whether it was braver of me to come out as a Conservative or gay. I have...

Modern Slavery Act 2015: Global LGBT Rights (26 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: I am extremely grateful to my hon. Friend for saying that: it will send a strong signal to the UAE and perhaps a number of other similar countries. I want to finish by addressing the appalling decision by the World Health Organisation the other day. What did it think it was doing trying to make Robert Mugabe a goodwill ambassador? This is not just about health issues. If we look at how he has...
