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.

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...

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...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Hackney South and Shoreditch (Meg Hillier). By my calculation, I am the 93rd speaker in this debate, so the challenge is clearly to find something new to say. This is an issue that excites high passions, and sometimes destructive and dangerous ones, but if Parliament is to do its job—this institution is being...

Damian Green: Will the Minister give way?

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Damian Green: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that remark about my age. Let me extend the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Worcestershire (Nigel Huddleston) about soft power in relation to the creative industries, especially TV. The particular relevance to Scotland is that the TV industry was, in a way, invented by John Logie Baird, and I understand that Scottish colleagues are...

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Damian Green: Outside this House there is a much higher appreciation of the tenacity of the Prime Minister in pursuing a successful deal than we sometimes hear inside it. One of the principal worries, as we are hearing, has been that in some way we will be trapped forever, either in the backstop or in a customs union. What is there in this declaration and in the withdrawal agreement to calm those fears?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships (12 Nov 2018)

Social Care Funding (17 Oct 2018)

Damian Green: In the light of what my right hon. Friend just said about the long-term nature of the challenges, may I put to him the question that the Chair of the Health and Social Care Committee put to the Opposition spokeswoman? Does my right hon. Friend agree that the only way to get a decent long-term solution for all the people who will need social care is by doing so on a cross-party basis with a...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Oct 2018)

Damian Green: The Government were clearly right to reject that part of the Commission’s proposals that would have threatened the integrity of the United Kingdom, but it is salutary that what the European Commission produced was a deal that would have been worse than no deal. Despite that, can my right hon. Friend assure me and the House that she will continue to work very hard to make sure that we get a...

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment: EU Exit Negotiations (9 Oct 2018)
