Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Damian Green: Amendment (f) stands in my name and the names of an eclectic and wide-ranging group of right hon. and hon. Friends from three separate parties. Many of us have perhaps not found ourselves signing amendments together much in the past. The purpose of the amendment is manifold, but one of its purposes is to avoid what may face us at the end of this month—a cliff-edge, no-deal Brexit for which...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Damian Green: The one point in that intervention I agreed with is that we are in a very strange place at the moment. I think the whole House can agree with that.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Damian Green: I will allow one more intervention—the hon. Lady.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Damian Green: That is an extremely valid point. I believe that they do. I will come on to what is actually in the amendment shortly, if I may. As I hope I have made clear, I am as keen as anyone to reject an immediate no deal. I will support the Government’s motion this evening. Indeed, this amendment is deliberately designed not to replace the Government’s motion, as many amendments do, but to act in...

Eurotunnel: Payment (4 Mar 2019)

Damian Green: If we can essay a transport-related question, could my right hon. Friend give me some assurance that the extremely important cross-channel rail link will continue as it is now, under any circumstances, after 29 March? On the medical front, can he say what steps his Department has taken on radioactive isotopes and particularly important medicines? I have constituents who are very concerned...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Damian Green: It is a great pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Belfast North (Nigel Dodds) as someone who was both present and involved when the confidence and supply arrangement was originally signed. I am delighted that it is in such robust health today. I rise, as indeed the last two speakers did, to support amendment (n) in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Altrincham and Sale West...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Damian Green: I am delighted that my right hon. Friend is asking me to address hypothetical questions. Let us see where we are in two weeks’ time. Certainly, as I have said before, I will do whatever it takes to avoid a no-deal Brexit. The method chosen may not be exactly right, but he and others with immensely fertile brains may yet, I hope, have two weeks to think again or, even better, may not need...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (29 Jan 2019)

Damian Green: My right hon. Friend may well be right. Certainly, throughout the negotiations the Government have made the perfectly sensible point that anyone entering into a negotiation saying, “Whatever happens, I am going to take a deal at the end of it,” is unlikely to get a particularly brilliant result. To some extent, that is what happened to the British Government in the negotiations before the...

Universal Credit: Managed Migration (8 Jan 2019)

Damian Green: If the Government do proceed on a pilot basis with moving people across from existing benefits, that would be extremely sensible. Does my hon. Friend share my experience of talking to job advisers and other staff in jobcentres? They are very enthusiastic about universal credit, as opposed to previous benefit systems, precisely because it helps them to better help other people into work in...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Large Goods Vehicles: Parking (20 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will publish the areas in Kent that have received a notification from Highways England in relation to their suitability for lorry parking.

Future Immigration (19 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. He has addressed the central conundrum of immigration policy, which is how to ensure the necessary controls on the numbers while also attracting not just our fair share, but—preferably—more than our fair share of the brightest and the best from around the world to help our economy and our communities. One issue, however, which I hope he will...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tobacco: Labelling (19 Dec 2018)

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tobacco: Labelling (13 Dec 2018)

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tobacco: Labelling (13 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the agreed cost is of the image licensing agreement reached with the Australian Government on the use of that country's picture warnings on tobacco products in the event the UK leaves the EU without an agreement; on what date his Department first discussed the potential for a future image licensing agreement with the Australian...

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: Mr Speaker, as one of the 164 Members you referred to who have already spoken in this debate, may I assure the Prime Minister that I think that it is more important that we end up with the right deal for this country? What is most important for Parliament is that it is seen to take its responsibility and, if possible, agree a deal. Given that, as she rightly identifies, the Irish backstop has...
