Leaving the Eu: Scotland and Wales Continuity Bills (18 Apr 2018)

Damian Green: I assure my right hon. and learned Friend that, from my experience, in private the Scottish and Welsh Governments are considerably more constructive and realistic in approaching the post-Brexit devolution settlements than some of the rhetoric I suspect we are about to hear would suggest. Does he agree that they are being constructive and realistic because establishing a decent settlement is...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Damian Green: The Prime Minister deserves the support that she is getting from across the House for the action she has taken, just as it has had support from democracies not just in Europe but all around the world. Is not the problem for those who are advocating any and every type of action except military action that the action by the Assad regime was part of a repeated pattern of the barbaric use of...

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Damian Green: The Home Secretary is right to have set up a special unit so that the necessary reassurance can be provided as soon as possible. With that in mind, will she tell the House what the minimum level of evidence that the new Home Office unit will accept is, so that people will be able to demonstrate quickly and easily that they are genuine Windrush-generation citizens of this country?

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Housing: Older People (3 Apr 2018)

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Damian Green: There were many positive aspects of the Council, for which my right hon. Friend deserves congratulations, including particularly the unanimous support from other European countries over Russia’s appalling behaviour, showing that our European friends are considerably more robust than the leadership of the Opposition. Does she agree that today’s welcome moves to expel Russian diplomats from...

Uk Passport Contract (26 Mar 2018)

Damian Green: My right hon. Friend can be reassured by the fact that in 2010, when I was doing her job, the Labour MP Michael Meacher complained bitterly about the awarding of the contract to De La Rue because it had been taken away from a firm in his constituency. What was interesting about that firm was that it was an American firm, which had been given the contract by the previous Labour Government....

Health and Social Care: Social Care Provision (20 Mar 2018)

Damian Green: May I add my thanks to those of my hon. Friends for the fact that one of the new medical schools will be placed in east Kent, which is an extremely welcome development for the health economy? On social care, the Secretary of State will be aware that the funding issue is one of the big long-term questions that need to be answered. Can he assure the House that the Green Paper will not only...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Damian Green: It is very welcome to hear from the Chancellor such good news on debt and growth, in particular their effect on the real lives of people in my constituency, where since 2010 youth unemployment is down 48% and apprenticeships are up 6,850. In continuing his successful balanced approach, will he commit to dealing with the social care sector, because we both know it will become an increasingly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Lorry Parking (1 Mar 2018)

Damian Green: What steps his Department is taking to identify emergency parking sites for lorries when travel across the channel is disrupted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Lorry Parking (1 Mar 2018)

Damian Green: The Secretary of State is, I know, aware of the extreme urgency of finding a solution to this matter. Even if we assume a full implementation period after Brexit, we could be less than two years away from new customs arrangements at Dover, and problems there could be disastrous not just for roads across Kent, but for the national road haulage industry. Can he assure us that, by the time of...

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: Border Arrangements (28 Feb 2018)

Damian Green: Of all the areas of the Brexit negotiations that give rise to high emotion, perhaps the one that most needs to be treated calmly, rationally and unemotionally is the question of the Irish border. Can my right hon. Friend assure me that the UK Government and their negotiators will continue to deal with this issue in that calm, rational way? In doing that, could they perhaps persuade the...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Damian Green: I will be brief because I want to concentrate on only one aspect of the debate, which is safety. I know that there are important issues to be discussed about costs, timing, and whether we have a full or partial move out. For the record, I support those who say that we must be clear that Parliament should stay in the Palace of Westminster in the long term. But before we consider these...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Damian Green: I agree with the hon. Lady. The wider point about safety was put very starkly by the recently retired Black Rod, David Leakey, who said: “There could be a major fire, there could be loss of life.” The one thing we know—the one unarguable fact we know—is that the more we delay, the more likely some horrific outcome becomes. We need to be clear about who statistically is most likely to...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Damian Green: I am glad to have given the hon. Gentleman the opportunity to make that public service announcement. I want to address directly one of the arguments that has been used to advocate delay and continuing to muddle through in the way that we have done for too long. The argument is that in the wake of the terrible tragedy of Grenfell Tower, we cannot be seen to be spending large sums of money on...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Damian Green: The hon. Lady’s point illustrates the general one that those who have spent most time and effort looking at the conditions of this House, either on various committees or, indeed, inside Government, are the ones who are most keen to take early and decisive action. No one’s conscience should be comfortable with the potential consequences of delay and inaction in these circumstances. I have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 2018)

Damian Green: Thank you —it is a lot easier asking them than answering them. It is vital for long-term prosperity that the Government maintain infrastructure investment. With this in mind, and especially as proposals for new bridges are currently fashionable, may I ask the Prime Minister to commit the Government to a very practical idea, which is an early start on the lower Thames crossing between Kent...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Barclays: Pensions (23 Jan 2018)

Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what recent meetings she has had with the Pensions Regulator on the future of the Barclays Bank Pension Scheme; and if she will make a statement.
