Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

George Howarth: Before I call the Minister, let me say that I know he will need no reminding that it is customary to leave a short time for the Member who secured the debate to sum up. I call Sir Alan Duncan.

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

George Howarth: Order. The three Front-Bench spokespeople have indicated that they are prepared to take a little less time, so we should have enough time for people to complete their speeches, although they will still have to be fairly brief.

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

George Howarth: Order. I will call Sir Edward Leigh next. If he could bring his speech down to three minutes, I will be able to get in the hon. Member for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross (Jamie Stone), too.

Russia and the Council of Europe — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (18 Jul 2018)

George Howarth: Order. I am not going to impose a time limit, but there are four Members remaining to speak, and I have to call the Front Benchers at 10.30. If Members can confine their remarks to between four and five minutes, we should be able to get everyone in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

George Howarth: The artificial pancreas, which is championed by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, has the potential to transform the lives of those with type 1 diabetes. Will the right hon. Gentleman agree to look at ways to increase access to diabetes technology, including the artificial pancreas and continuous glucose monitoring, so that everyone with type 1 diabetes will have access to the best...

Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: I congratulate my hon. Friend not only on securing this debate, but on the knowledgeable and passionate way in which she is putting the case. Does she agree that this is an example of the way that we in this country are very bad at dealing with rare conditions and potential therapies or treatments for them? Does she believe that, while this needs to be hurried up, the whole process needs to...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: As the hon. Gentleman pointed out, the Taylor report led to no standing areas. He will be aware that Margaret Aspinall, who speaks on behalf of the Hillsborough families, has said that this is a “sensitive time” and that most families of the victims “don’t want standing ever brought back”. Does he not agree that those views should be given some weight?

Business of the House (21 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: Will the Leader of the House find time for a debate on the Regulator of Social Housing’s regulatory notice that was issued yesterday to Knowsley Housing Trust, highlighting its failure to keep fire safety information up to date, thereby putting tenants at risk? Such a debate would give me the opportunity to urge those in senior executive and board positions in that organisation to take...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: Like my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn), I hold the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) in very high regard for his integrity and fluency. I do, however, say gently that he is in danger of turning into a modern-day grand old Duke of York. There are only so many times you can march the troops up the hill and down again without losing...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: The responsibility that we all have, which I take as seriously as everybody else, is to try to balance the concerns of our businesses and our constituents, including some that they might not have had at the time of the referendum. That is what I have tried to do. Another factor for me, as a former Northern Ireland Minister, is that I am not prepared to see the relationship between Northern...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: Mainly out of fear. My right hon. Friend had a point, in that we do need a much better managed migration process in this country, but some of the businesses I spoke to in Knowsley said they rely on skills that simply are not available in this country, such as specialist engineering and construction skills. If we cannot fill those vacancies without some migrant labour for particular skills, we...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: My right hon. Friend is right. As he will appreciate, we are not an agricultural community in Knowsley, although we do have some farms and we have the estates of the Earls of Derby. However, I know about the concern he raises and I share it. Having listened to what businesses and my constituents say, I now must make a choice about which, if any, of the amendments to support. I agree with my...

Northern Rail Services: Greater Manchester — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: Before I call the Minister, I gently remind him that it is customary to leave enough time for the mover of the motion to respond briefly to the debate.

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. The core of her argument—I agree with it—is that the ban can be done. Does she agree that it is within the scope of the Government and the Minister to change the practice of importing fur in a way that would please not only those of us taking part in the debate, but the majority of our constituents?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

George Howarth: Going back to the example of the bereaved family and the gross intrusion into their privacy and grief, does my right hon. Friend agree that one of the reasons that such families choose not to use the current system is that it runs the risk of things that have been wrongly said about lost loved ones being repeated in the media as part of the process?

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

George Howarth: Before I call the Minister to respond to the debate, I remind him gently that it is customary to leave a short period at the end of the debate for the mover of the motion to wind up.

Infection Prevention and Control — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

George Howarth: I do not propose setting a time limit on speeches. It might be helpful by way of guidance to suggest that if everyone speaks for no more than 10 minutes, it should be possible to accommodate everyone who has indicated that they want to speak.

Belhaj and Boudchar: Litigation Update (10 May 2018)

George Howarth: I congratulate the Attorney General on the statement and the sensitive way in which he put the argument. First, I was a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee for 11 years, and in the period leading up to the 2010 election the Committee did a substantial amount of work on what consolidated guidance should look like. In the event, the coalition Government issued a completely...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

George Howarth: Will my hon. Friend give way? I know he has just said, “One more time”, but perhaps he will make it two.
