Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Hurricane Relief (Caribbean) (18 Oct 2017)

James Gray: My understanding is that military assistance to British overseas territories may not be paid out of the British aid budget. Is it not an absurdity that our defence budget has to pay for British military aid in the Caribbean?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (16 Oct 2017)

James Gray: Wiltshire police force’s investigation into the pretty flimsy allegations against Sir Edward Heath—a matter to which I hope to return in topical questions, if I am lucky enough to catch your eye, Mr Speaker—has cost between £1.5 million and £2 million, depending on whom one listens to. Most of us think that is an idiotic waste of money. I am grateful to the Home...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

James Gray: In response to what can at best be described as a fishing expedition by Wiltshire police on the steps of Sir Edward Heath’s house in Salisbury some years ago, some 118 people came forward with allegations against Sir Edward. Of them, 111 have since been dismissed, leaving a handful that are still theoretically on the table. The Home Secretary has now had an opportunity to read both...

Monarch Airlines (9 Oct 2017)

James Gray: Yes, Mr Speaker. I join my friends in congratulating the Secretary of State, the CAA and others on a magnificent operation to repatriate so many people who would otherwise be marooned overseas. However, I remain concerned, because I have a number of constituents who had booked holidays but not yet travelled. Will they be covered under the ATOL scheme, or under credit card insurance schemes,...

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

James Gray: Order. That very useful debate having concluded, and with the Minister and Member responsible for the next debate being in the Chamber, it may be convenient to continue without any gap.

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

James Gray: Order. The hon. Gentleman is a very experienced Member and he knows very well that that intervention was too long. The previous intervention was from a new Member, the hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr), and he can be excused both for its being rather lengthy and for reading it, which is not something one would normally expect. I remind Members that interventions should be short, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Economic Opportunities: South Wales and the South-west (6 Sep 2017)

James Gray: The scrapping of the Severn tolls is a huge benefit to businesses across Wales. Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is also of vast benefit to businesses in places such as Wiltshire, where HGV operators have been paying £20 a time to get across the Severn? All of sudden, they will be able to do business in Wales much more profitably.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Child Sex Abuse: Compensation (5 Sep 2017)

James Gray: No one will deny the absolute right and need of victims to receive proper compensation from CICA under these conditions, but does not the Secretary of State agree that there may be occasions—as in, for example, the very grave allegations made against the late Sir Edward Heath—when the informant is incentivised in one way or another to make the allegation by the likelihood of...

James Gray: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, if he will ensure that no decision will be taken on Marine Aggregate Dredging Application MLA/2016/00227, South Goodwin Sands, Area 521 by the Marine Management Organisation until the Secretary of State for Defence has come to a decision on the application made by Marinet Ltd on 22 February 2017, to designate all or part...

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

James Gray: The hon. Gentleman is of course right to criticise CarillionAmey—in many respects it is not great at all—and his party of course does not like anything being contracted out, but if we took the contract away from CarillionAmey, what would an incoming Labour Government do?

Armed Forces (19 Jul 2017)

James Gray: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. However, I am puzzled by his line of argument. He seems to be saying that expeditionary counter-insurgency warfare is what we expect to do in the years ahead, while at the same time saying we must be flexible. What does he think about the notion that NATO has this entirely wrong, that we are focusing on the last war and that the next war...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul (12 Jul 2017)

James Gray: I warmly welcome the tone of the Secretary of State’s announcement, and in particular the extra funds the UK is giving to the wonderful people in Mosul. However, she will know that if the experience of Fallujah and elsewhere is to be followed in Mosul, the vicious tactics of Daesh will mean that every single house, street and public place will be booby-trapped and mined, and it will...
