Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Annual report on corrosive substance attacks (11 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: May I make a gentle suggestion that applies to all Members? We are having a very interesting debate, but could we move slightly back towards the clauses that we are considering? I do not want a general debate about tech companies and social media.

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill (11 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: Before we begin, Members should their jackets off if they wish; it is incredibly hot in here. That includes officials and anybody else here. Please do not feel inhibited.

Idlib (10 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Select Committee’s unanimously agreed report on “The Responsibility to Protect and Humanitarian Intervention”, published today, says: “There has been a manifest failure to protect civilians and to prevent mass atrocity crimes in Syria.” It calls for an independent inquiry to investigate the processes that lead to and the consequences of the Government’s...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: It is a pleasure to follow my friend the Chairman of our Foreign Affairs Committee. As so often, I find that I agree with every word he said. Our Committee has produced a series of reports, to which he has referred. I have served on that Committee on and off for almost 20 years in this House, and it is very frustrating to serve on that Committee and experience a Foreign Secretary whom we know...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: But I do want to say a few words about Russia. Given the challenges to the global international order that we face and the direct challenges to our country as a result of the criminal murder in our country by the Russian state, this is the worst possible time for our country to be leaving the European Union. We need partners, allies and international co-operation. I asked the Prime Minister...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: I do not wish to go any further down that route, because I am getting signals from Mr Deputy Speaker about time. The hon. Gentleman can no doubt make his own speech when the time comes. I want to conclude by focusing on one other area, which is what the United States Administration are doing to the global order. The Chairman of the Select Committee made reference to Senator John McCain. The...

Salisbury Update (5 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Prime Minister referred in her comprehensive and detailed statement to co-operation with our European Union partners and the EU chemical weapons sanction regime. Can she assure me and the whole country that we will continue to work closely with our EU partners, as the closest possible security and intelligence and sanctions co-operation will be necessary whatever happens in March next year?

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Secretary of State did not mention the two British overseas territories that border European Union states. What progress has been made in the negotiations relating to Gibraltar and to Anguilla, which borders France and the Kingdom of the Netherlands?

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: Like me, my hon. Friend has been contacted by constituents who have been subjected to this outrageous behaviour, so he will know that many people are distraught and have had their whole futures destroyed by these administrative measures. Is it not a fact that this a bigger scandal than Windrush in terms of the number of individuals removed from the country and whose livelihoods are being...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Australia: Diplomatic Relations (4 Sep 2018)

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Secretary of State said that UK nationals in the EU will be able to “live their lives broadly as they do now”. Will he confirm that the existing rights to move freely between EU countries and to work and study in other EU countries will apply to all UK citizens currently living in France, Germany, Estonia, Poland and elsewhere?

Syria (24 Jul 2018)

Mike Gapes: I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wirral South (Alison McGovern) on bringing this matter to us today. Is it not a fact that what the Russians and the Assad regime are doing is driving out moderate forces, forcing them away and, as a result, increasing the territory that is under the control of Daesh affiliate Jaysh Khalid Ibn al-Waleed? Does that not indicate that this is not...

The Committee will meet again to begin line-by-line consideration of the Bill at 4.30 pm on my 66th birthday, Tuesday 4 September, but I will...
