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...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I have a couple of housekeeping announcements before we kick off the debate. First, you may have noticed that the clock that we are working to is running about 40 seconds behind the annunciator clock. That will become relevant later when I put a time limit on speeches, because a lot of Members want to take part this afternoon. Secondly, in view of the...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. Nine Members have submitted their names in advance to speak. I intend to call the Front-Bench spokespeople at 3.30 pm, so I am imposing a four-minute time limit on speeches. It may assist Members to know the batting order, so that they know where they stand: it will be Rachael Maskell, Robert Courts, Chris Evans, Jack Lopresti, Jim Shannon, Andrew Bowie, Luke Pollard, Eddie Hughes...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: Will Members leaving the Chamber please do so quickly and quietly?

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: Mr Kawczynski, you have 30 seconds for a final comment.

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: In the interests of time, the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson) may wish to treat that as a rhetorical intervention.

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. It is not welcomed by the Chair because Hansard, of course, cannot see the articles to which the hon. Gentleman is referring, but he is more than free to quote from them.

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Roger Gale: Order. Four hon. Gentlemen wish to speak, and I propose to start calling the Front Benchers at 10.30, so do the maths.

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates (20 Apr 2017)

Roger Gale: I am grateful to all hon. Members on both sides of the House who have contributed to this debate, which will have been watched by many people around the world. We are proud to live in a country that has a reputation for fairness and non-discrimination. There is an injustice, and my hon. Friend the Minister knows that. To say that the situation has been widely publicised and that it has been...

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates (20 Apr 2017)

Roger Gale: I beg to move, That this House notes the detrimental effect that the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Regulations 2017 will have on the lives of many expatriate UK citizens living overseas with frozen pensions; and insists that the Government take the necessary steps to withdraw those Regulations. As chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on frozen British pensions, and with...

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates (20 Apr 2017)

Roger Gale: We shall await the Minister’s response with great interest. I am grateful to my hon. Friend. A former constituent of mine, and a friend, now living in South Africa, wrote to me to say, “I have been looking after my wife since her stroke and increased dementia, plus incontinence now, for over a year. Reviewing the situation with our daughter, my wife is slowly going downhill. I am...
