Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: The Minister rightly praised the high levels of productivity and the skills of the workforce, and she mentioned—again, quite properly—the Government’s industrial strategy, but what sort of industrial strategy is it that takes no account of the changes that have taken place in our currency since the referendum and, more importantly, what account does it take of our...

Written Answers — Home Office: Crime: Children (16 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if she will (a) make an assessment of the prevalence of child criminal exploitation and (b) bring forward legislative proposals to establish a definition for such exploitation under the Modern Slavery Act 2015; and if she will make a statement.

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: With this it will be convenient to discuss new clause 2—Review of changes to chargeability of trading profits to corporation tax at Northern Ireland rate— “(1) CTA 2010 is amended as follows. (2) After section 357WH (Allocation of Northern Ireland profits etc of firm to company), insert— ‘357WI  Review of changes to chargeability of trading profits to...

Finance Bill: Business Investment Relief (11 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Clause stand part. New clause 1—Review of conditions under which business investment relief is available— ‘(1) Chapter A1 of Part 14 of ITA 2007 (remittance basis) is amended as follows. (2) After section 809VO (investments made from mixed funds), insert— “809VP  Review of conditions under which...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: I think it is agreed on both sides that the existing funding formula is unfair. Part of the case that my hon. Friend the Member for Garston and Halewood (Maria Eagle) and I have made is that the recent adjustments somehow succeeded in making it even more unfair for some schools. That does not seem to be a sensible way to deal with this.

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: A few moments ago my hon. Friend made the point that the evidence is that the funding formula adjustments announced in the summer have not really resolved the problems in south Liverpool. As she is aware, my information is that all bar three of the schools in Knowsley—so this affects her constituency as well—will have either no change or further reduction to their funding. The...

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: My hon. Friend is generous in giving way again. She, my hon. Friend the Member for St Helens South and Whiston (Ms Rimmer) and I have been pressing the Government to provide support for sixth-form A-level provision in the borough. Does she agree that if we do not get that, the effect on other secondary schools will also be detrimental?

Supported Housing Funding — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: The hon. Gentleman is being generous in giving way. He made the point that if supported housing becomes unsustainable—as many people say it already is—the cost of people going into residential care will be exponentially higher?

Aggressive Antisocial Behaviour — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: It is reassuring that all that work is going on, but at the end of the day it does not alter the fact that, even where powers already exist, if the police do not have the resources—they say that they often do not have the resources—to exercise those powers, the problem cannot be tackled.

Aggressive Antisocial Behaviour — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

George Howarth: It is, as ever, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe) on a comprehensive analysis of the problems confronting many of our constituents. I shall confine my remarks to the criminal, dangerous and antisocial use of motorcycles. Many Members of the House have raised concerns about that; indeed,...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: Before the hon. Gentleman responds, may I thank all Members who contributed today, and particularly those on the Front Benches? It was very difficult to get everybody in, but we managed it in the end—certainly all those who had applied to speak. I call Bambos Charalambous to respond.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: Order. I will be calling the Front-Bench Members at 10.36 am. I call Jim Shannon.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: It might be helpful to announce that the three Front Benchers have generously agreed to cut their speeches to give us an additional six minutes. I will therefore be calling the Front Benchers from 10.36 am. Do the maths and try to accommodate all of your colleagues.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: Order. Before I call Bambos Charalambous, I should say that those seeking to make a speech in the debate may consider it unnecessary to make an intervention, enabling those who for one reason or another cannot make a speech to make a short intervention. I say that in an advisory sense; it is up to the hon. Gentleman whether he accepts any interventions. As they glance around the Chamber,...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: Order. Before I call the next speaker, I should point out that many people wish to contribute, so there will be a time limit of three minutes starting from when the next speaker sits down. I apologise for that, but it is the only way we can try to get everybody in. Even then, it is unlikely that everybody who is down to speak will be called.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury (Rosie Duffield) on a speech that was fluent, forceful and, at the same time, generous to her predecessor. Her speech has also made me determined me to visit Canterbury, which sounds such a delightful place. I have a few points: on why people voted to leave in the referendum; on where the Bill stands in relation to why people...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. The one I was going to make is that if we are being brutally honest, we all know what is going to happen. The Government, through the negotiations, are going to find a set of arrangements as close as possible to being part of the single market but without being a member of it and something approximating the customs union. If they do not do that, they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Courts: Victims and Witnesses (5 Sep 2017)

George Howarth: The Minister will be aware that decisions on the support received by police and crime commissioners to work with victims are often made very late in the financial year. Will he consider three-year-long provision, so that services can be provided more efficiently and with greater stability?

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

George Howarth: Order. Welsh politics has always held a great fascination for me, although I do not think this debate is the occasion to run either the last general election, or, as the Minister seems to be doing, the one before that. If we can stick to the issue at hand, I am sure the people of Wales will be very grateful to us.

Queen’s Speech: Implications for Wales — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (19 Jul 2017)

George Howarth: Order. Although it is not required, as a courtesy, the Minister normally allows the Member who introduced the debate time to wind up.
