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

Roger Gale: I understand the time constraint, Mr Howarth, but because I am the leader of the UK delegation there are certain things that I need to say. I shall do my best to stick to five minutes, as you asked. First, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Henley (John Howell). I want immediately to express my appreciation for the collegiate attitude taken by the entire United Kingdom delegation...

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: My right hon. Friend’s commitment to animal welfare is well known. Can he assure the House that there is nothing in the common rulebook proposals that would frustrate the ambition of our right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to improve and enhance animal welfare post Brexit?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: I may have misunderstood—

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I may have misunderstood the Minister, and I know it is not the custom to ask a question to which one does not know the answer, but I think he said that Royal Naval ships were confined to aircraft carriers, frigates and destroyers. Would that not also apply to any replacement amphibious craft that we might need?

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Order. I would be grateful if the Front-Bench spokesperson would stick to the subject in hand, which is Brexit and Scotland.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Order. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will be creative enough to relate his reply to the matter under debate, the European Union. I am interested to hear his response.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Order. I intend to call the Front-Bench speakers at 10.30 am. Do the maths—there are five Members waiting to speak.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Order. I ask hon. Members to confine interventions to the length of a proper intervention and not to make speeches.

Leaving the EU: Implications for Scotland — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: Before we proceed, I understand that in the Scottish Parliament, it is—[Interruption.] Order. I understand that in the Scottish Parliament, it is customary to use the word “you” when referring to another Member. In the Westminster Parliament, “you” refers to the Chair. The Chair has no responsibility for party political matters, so I would be grateful if all hon....

Detainee Mistreatment and Rendition (2 Jul 2018)

Roger Gale: My right hon. Friend plays a significant role through the Council of Europe in seeking to maintain the highest possible standards of human rights throughout the 47 member states. We have a good reputation, and that reputation must be maintained. I fully accept that the first priority of Government must be the protection of the realm, and that that sometimes involves difficult decisions, but...

Health and Social Care: Capital Investment Projects (19 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: What funding his Department has recently allocated to capital investment projects in the NHS.

Health and Social Care: Capital Investment Projects (19 Jun 2018)

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: Mr Speaker, you will recall recently granting me a Westminster Hall debate on the HPV vaccine for boys. Will the Department update me on progress?

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: I have listened carefully to the hon. Lady and indeed to everyone else. It strikes me that, other than my modest contribution in terms of bridging a gap, not a single person has come up with any solution to the passenger and—currently much more important—freight needs of the United Kingdom. We need an answer. Just saying “we don’t want this” is no answer.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: Sir David, it is a particular pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, on the eve of the 35th anniversary of our election to Parliament. It strikes me that we have been discussing this subject for most of those 35 years. Sir David, you represent a constituency on one side of the Thames estuary and I represent a constituency on the other side. You and I are both fully aware of...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: For the sake of argument, I will accept the point my hon. Friend is making, but it is safe to say that my argument is that I am concerned about UK Ltd and post-Brexit freight. As a country, we will have to develop markets in the middle east, Asia, the far east, Africa and South America if we are going to survive in a post-Brexit modern economy. We will have to have air freight capacity to...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement, but, without wishing to compromise him in any decisions he may have to take in the future, I cannot help noticing that he has indicated very clearly that it will take some years for there to be wheels on tarmac and a new runway at Heathrow. In the interim, we have to make the best use of existing runway capacity, and, in that context, and...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861: Ivory Bill (4 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: My right hon. Friend will perhaps know that there was a debate in Westminster Hall on the fur trade earlier this afternoon. During that debate, the point was made very clearly that one of the reasons that that vile trade should stop was that there was no need for it. Is that not also the case for ivory? There is no need for it.

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Roger Gale: First, I am grateful to my hon. Friend for making the point that I had tried to make so much better than I made it myself. Secondly, when the House voted to ban fur farming in 2000, we did so because we believed that it was a vile practice and that it had no place in modern British society. We did not vote to move the problem from A to B. Therefore, when my hon. Friend the Minister responds...
