Council of Europe — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Roger Gale: When we thank people, we always miss somebody out. Before I get into terrible trouble, I should say that it would be remiss of me not to thank, through my right hon. Friend, our secretariat here: Nick Wright and his team, in particular Jonathan Finlay, who, as she said, has done so much to promote our cause. We are indebted to them all the time.

Council of Europe — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Roger Gale: I will do my best, Mr Hosie, but I may take a little longer than three and a half minutes. I congratulate my friend, the hon. Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker), on securing this debate, on his robust presentation and on his kind personal remarks. He said that we work together, and indeed we do. In that context, I thank the hon. Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Angela Smith), the...

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Roger Gale: My right hon. Friend’s assurance that the costs will be borne by the state will be most welcome; it is clear that this may have acted as a deterrent to some in the past when seeking to regularise their position. Will she make certain that it is made very clear, very publicly, that there is no need to hire an expensive lawyer to put this right—we can do it?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Driving: Licensing (29 Mar 2018)

Roger Gale: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the validity of the UK driving licence in the EU after the UK has left the EU.

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Roger Gale: Flowing from her opening remarks, will my right hon. Friend call on the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, the President of its Parliamentary Assembly—Michele Nicoletti—and the Assembly itself to join the British delegation in condemning utterly the Russian Federation’s actions, which are wholly unacceptable in a civilised society?

Health and Social Care: NHS Primary Care: Ageing Population (20 Mar 2018)

Roger Gale: Thanet enjoys an ageing population and I am pleased to be a part of it. We will be delighted to know that one of the five new medical schools designated by the Secretary of State today is going to be based in east Kent: the bid from the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University was successful. It will not have escaped my right hon. Friend’s notice that the Christ Church...

Hospitality Sector: Tipping (7 Mar 2018)

Roger Gale: That is not a point of order for the Chair. The Minister has wound up his speech, but I think he indicated during his remarks that he would address that issue.

Hospitality Sector: Tipping (7 Mar 2018)

Roger Gale: Before we proceed, I remind hon. Members that in a one-hour debate the Opposition Front-Bench spokesmen each have five minutes and the Minister has 10 minutes. Therefore, I shall call the winding-up speeches as close as I can get to 10 minutes past 5.

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: If I accept the idea of cruise liner facilities being offered for cattle shipped from the islands to the Scottish mainland—for the purpose of this argument, I do—will the right hon. Gentleman explain why it is then necessary to permit those animals to be transported to mainland Europe in conditions over which we have no control at all, for hundreds of miles and dozens of hours?

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) on introducing the debate. I want to touch on a number of issues very briefly, and to deal with a couple of the points raised by my hon. Friend the Member for North Herefordshire (Bill Wiggin). I normally agree with him, but on this occasion there is clearly a little difference between us. Let us tackle the...

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: The hon. Gentleman has greater expertise in this narrow field than me, particularly since he farms. I accept that point, but I do not accept that it is necessary to send those animals to the south of England, which is an eight, 10 or 12-hour journey once they hit the mainland—and he first ships them from the island to the mainland United Kingdom. Even the journey to the south of Britain...

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: I think my hon. Friend has missed the entire point of the debate. The point is not that animals should be transported under good conditions, but whether they should be slaughtered, as my hon. Friend the Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) said in opening the debate, as close to the point of production as possible and exported on the hook and not on the hoof. In that context, it...

Leaving the EU: Live Farm Animal Exports — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (26 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: I am grateful to my hon. Friend; he is being very generous. He just said that once the animals leave these shores we have no control over them. He is absolutely right, and that is precisely why we do not want them transported halfway across Europe alive.

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: This morning, we heard a dignified debate about organ donation and Bill that was named “Max’s Bill” This Bill could be “Shindler’s Bill”. I hope the hon. Member for Ipswich (Sandy Martin), having spoken for three quarters of an hour, will find the time to meet Harry Shindler. I am very proud to be allowed to call Harry Shindler a friend. He is 97 years...

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: No. The hon. Gentleman spoke for far too long; I shall not give way an inch. The idea that he put forward is a discourtesy to many of his colleagues who support this cause, including the hon. Member for Ilford North, whose constituency he apparently could not remember.

Overseas Electors Bill (23 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: I beg the pardon of the hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes)—I could not remember, either. We are all fallible. The hon. Member for Ipswich referred to the fact that people who live in Commonwealth countries did not have their pensions uprated. I happen to be the chairman of the all-party group on frozen British pensions. I do not recall the hon. Gentleman attending any one of the...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Roger Gale: I think it fair to say that most, if not all, Members who are present today are here because we support the Bill and want to see it on the statute book. But—and it is a “but”—the hon. Gentleman said in his response to the point made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Dame Cheryl Gillan) that friends and family would be consulted. I think it...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Roger Gale: I am listening with interest to the hon. Gentleman. He is talking about social responsibility, but I need to remind him that he should be talking about the bank levy.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review on inclusive growth and equality (18 Dec 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. It may be in order in the hon. Gentleman’s terms, but it is not in order in my terms. I should like to return to the bank levy.
