Immigration (Time Limit on Detention): [2nd Allotted Day] (5 Dec 2018)

Mike Gapes: Can the Home Secretary confirm that because we will not be participating in the PESCO—permanent structured co-operation—arrangements, we will have no seat in the room, no voice and no vote or veto within any of the foreign policy defence and security arrangements; we will not be in the European Defence Agency; and we will not, unless we have a special arrangement, be in the European...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Mike Gapes: I am really pleased that the right hon. Gentleman, my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham East (Mr Leslie) and the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry) took the risk of taking this case to the Court to establish an important principle. If the decision now is in line with the advice that is being given, then that is in the interests of the democracy of this...

G20 Summit (3 Dec 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Prime Minister has referred to a pattern of Russian behaviour, and she has also condemned the Russian aggression in Ukraine. Did she also have an opportunity in her conversations with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman or with President Erdoğan to talk about Syria and the continuing crimes being carried out by Russia and its Iranian and Hezbollah allies there?

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: Will the Prime Minister confirm that, if we go back to square one, we will retain a seat, a voice and a vote; we will stay in the single market and the customs union; and we will be in a better place than we would be in the backstop?

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: The outline declaration last week referred to Europol and Eurojust, but they are not mentioned in this declaration. All we have is the Prime Minister saying: “There would be a surrender agreement”. Frankly, given the loss of British influence that there will be—even though we continue to participate in security arrangements of different kinds, we are not actually making any...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: At previous times of national crisis in our history, both sides of the House have come together to resolve them. The Prime Minister has made it clear that she will not support the extension of article 50. She has said that we will be leaving the European Union regardless in March next year, and she has also ruled out a people’s vote. Is it not time that she recognised reality and, after...

Police Employer Pension Contributions (14 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: The hon. Member—

Police Employer Pension Contributions (14 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: I agree with every word.

Nuclear Power: Toshiba (12 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: This decision means that this country will be more dependent on co-operation with France and our European Union partnership. Does the Secretary of State agree that it is important we sustain that?

Leaving the Eu: Rights of EU Citizens (5 Nov 2018)

Mike Gapes: At the moment, many, many British people living in EU countries are very apprehensive about their future. They currently have EU citizenship rights, which they will lose if there is a no deal in March next year. What can the Minister say to reassure them? Is it not absurd that EU citizens in this country will have some protection, under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, but British...

Public Bill Committee: Overseas Electors Bill: Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: When these issues were first discussed many years ago, there was a five-year deadline, which became 20 years and then 15 years. In those days, we did not have the internet and Skype, and we did not have the ongoing communication and connection between people living abroad and this country. We also clearly had far fewer people who travelled to work in other countries for several years and who...

Public Bill Committee: Overseas Electors Bill: Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: Could there not be some mechanism whereby dates of birth and birth certificates were looked at, to see where the child was born or where the parents were resident at the time of the birth? Would not that data be of assistance?

Public Bill Committee: Overseas Electors Bill: Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: I declare an interest—at least currently, until I am purged by Momentum—as the honorary president of Labour International. Members of Labour International, who are active members of the Labour party, have been living in Brussels or France—I was with one in Madrid last week. They have been living outside this country for more than 15 years—in some cases 17, 18, 20 or 22 years—and had...

Public Bill Committee: Overseas Electors Bill: Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: It is a pleasure to say a few words under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. The hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon made clear that there are anomalies in our current electoral system. She referred to developments in Wales, but several hundred thousand young people have already voted in an election, including 16 and 17-year-olds: the Scottish referendum, which was on a different franchise...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: The Good Friday agreement took months of intensive negotiation and was then agreed in simultaneous referendums by overwhelming majorities in both Northern Ireland and the Republic. The petition as regards the 2016 referendum was that it was a narrow majority on an advisory referendum. Which does the Prime Minister think is more important?

Central Heating Installations: Consumer Protection (10 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: Order. I remind the hon. Lady that interventions are meant to be brief.

Central Heating Installations: Consumer Protection (10 Oct 2018)

Mike Gapes: Yes, they will be brief—thank you. I call Jamie Stone.

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: Annual report on corrosive substance attacks (11 Sep 2018)

Mike Gapes: To clarify, we will vote on new clause 25 later in proceedings.
