Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Roger Gale: I thank my right hon. Friend for her reaffirmation that British citizens resident throughout the EU will continue to receive uprated pensions and, as I now understand it, healthcare and health-related exportable benefits. May I ask her to indicate whether those will continue into the foreseeable future?

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Lady. I understand that many Members present come from a different discipline. The Scottish Parliament exercises different rules from those of the Westminster Parliament, but in this Parliament we do not refer to hon. or right hon. Members by their names; we refer to them by their constituency or their title, and we address the Chair. When a Member says...

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Roger Gale: The hon. Gentleman is extremely perceptive: it is not a point of order.

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Roger Gale: Due to the self-denying ordinance of all hon. Members, all those who indicated that they wished to speak, on both sides of the House, have been called.

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Roger Gale: That is a point of order for the Chair. My understanding from my predecessor in the Chair is that that was indicative and informative, but the hon. Gentleman is quite right that this five-minute speech has so far lasted for 13 minutes. I am sure that the hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun is drawing his remarks to a conclusion.

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. The hon. Lady courteously gave way, so the hon. Gentleman has the right to the floor, but I make the point from the Chair that it is customary for Members to come and listen to the debate before intervening.

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Roger Gale: Thank you for your courtesy and your restraint. We have accommodated all the Back Benchers who wished to speak. Well done.

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Roger Gale: My miserable maths suggest that, if a self-denying ordinance is imposed and Members confine themselves to five minutes’ speaking each, most if not all Members will get in. If Members are greedy, not everybody will get in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Amphibious Ships (23 Oct 2017)

Roger Gale: In welcoming my hon. Friend’s assurance that the future of our amphibious capability is under active and positive consideration, may I say, as one who has been privileged to spend a little bit of time on HMS Bulwark, that she is a magnificent fighting ship? She punches well above her weight. She has served this nation very well, and to remove her from service would be an absolute tragedy.

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Roger Gale: Mr Howell has indicated to me very courteously that as one of Her Majesty’s trade ambassadors he has an unavoidable commitment. I know that the Opposition and Government Front Benchers will understand that he will therefore not be able to be present for their winding-up speeches, but he has undertaken to read them in Hansard.

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: Actually, Members who give way get injury time. I am afraid that the next speech must be the final one from the Back Benches. If anyone has not got in, they should take note that they can intervene.

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. I hate doing this, but I am afraid three minutes means three minutes.

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. I gently suggest that interventions should be interventions, not speeches.

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. Seven Members have written in asking to speak and some others are standing who have not, but if you do the maths it does not work. I will set a time limit on speeches of three minutes, but I request a self-denying ordinance—even at three minutes, not everyone will get in. I apologise for that, but that is the way it is.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: I apologise, Mr Streeter. I mean no discourtesy to the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner), the Opposition spokesman, my hon. Friend the Minister or you, but the curse of conflicting appointments has landed on me, and I must be elsewhere at 3.30. I will stay and hear as much as I can of the debate in the meantime. I am acutely aware of the importance of the EU citizens employed in my...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: I think I am right that the hon. Member for Ealing Central and Acton (Dr Huq) referred to the House of Commons Library, which provided those statistics, but my evidence is from my own eyes—

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: I think we can accept—well, maybe we cannot, but I accept from personal knowledge—that most Brits who live in France outside Paris and in Spain outside Madrid, as the majority do, are not necessarily over retirement age but are retired or semi-retired. Some are working online. There is a significant number of them, and they are frightened people. I have become involved because...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: I entirely support the Government’s line in respect of the need for a reciprocal deal.

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Roger Gale: Not just no—it happens to be the case that many people who live in mainland Europe could not, for example, secure private healthcare insurance at their age, in any meaningful sense. That may not be the case for the 3 million people from the rest of the European Union living in the United Kingdom, many of whom are working. There is a disparity between the two causes. I chair the...
