Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

James Gray: 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service, an event that will be celebrated with a reception at your house, Mr Speaker, immediately after Prime Minister’s questions. Will the Prime Minister join me in marking 100 years of women’s outstanding service in the Royal Navy, as well as in the Royal Air Force and the Army? Will she join me...

Youth Employment — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

James Gray: On a point of order, Mrs Moon. Can something be done about the sound system, please?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

James Gray: I am sure that the Secretary of State agrees that for as long as one person remains rough sleeping in our nation, it is a national tragedy that we must do something about. At the same time, does he not accept that there is often a complex of reasons to do with mental health, being in the military—I am very concerned about that—physical health, and drink and drug abuse? Those are...

Arctic Ambassador: Appointment (29 Nov 2017)

James Gray: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his kind remarks about the APPG on polar regions, which I have the great honour of chairing. It covers both polar regions—the Antarctic and the Arctic—so will he explain why this debate is about an ambassador only to the Arctic? Surely, if we were to have an ambassador or a special envoy, they should be for both the Arctic and the Antarctic.

Arctic Ambassador: Appointment (29 Nov 2017)

James Gray: The hon. Gentleman is generous in giving way. I, too, am a Scot, and of course Scotland has a great deal to offer both the north and the south and elsewhere. I am puzzled, however, by his logic as to why Scotland having nice scenery should somehow or other lead to the conclusion that there should be an Arctic ambassador—which, after all, is what the debate is about.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Nov 2017)

James Gray: The Royal Air Force is unique among the three services in having been established by an Act of Parliament, which received Royal Assent 100 years ago today. Will my right hon. Friend find time in his busy diary to join me and Members of both Houses and staff from throughout the Palace in celebrating the magnificent service that the RAF has given to this nation over that 100 years, at a unique...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

James Gray: Will the Foreign Secretary give way?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

James Gray: My right hon. Friend is making some extremely important points, particularly about the Antarctic and the Southern ocean. Will he commit the Government to paying particular attention to marine protected areas around the Antarctic coast, which I think he strongly espouses, as do close relations of his?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

James Gray: Brilliant.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: National Security Capability Review (27 Nov 2017)

James Gray: What progress he has made on the national security capability review.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: National Security Capability Review (27 Nov 2017)

James Gray: I very much welcome the Secretary of State to his new job because, given his background, he is ideally suited to fighting the corner in the upcoming reviews. Will he please speak to the Prime Minister and remind her that the primary duty of any Government is the defence of the realm? Will he speak to the National Security Adviser, and indeed the Minister for the Cabinet Office, and remind...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Cyber-security (22 Nov 2017)

James Gray: Does my right hon. Friend not accept that none the less there is a slight lack of clarity on who within the Government has ultimate responsibility for cyber-security, both offensive and defensive? Is not it time we had a cyber-department that would be responsible for defending this nation against cyber-attacks and thinking about ways it could possibly be used abroad?

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

James Gray: Order. If I may, I will nudge the Minister gently back towards UK amphibious capability.

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

James Gray: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that point. Of course it is not a point of order; the Minister may indeed say what she likes when replying to the debate. However, if she replies inadequately, that is of course a matter for the record.

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

James Gray: Order. The hon. Gentleman must contain himself to the UK amphibious capability. He may not talk about nuclear capability or anything else. UK amphibious capability is all he may discuss.
