The Prime Minister Was Asked: Points of Order (26 Apr 2017)

Gerald Howarth: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am sure I speak for my colleagues who are standing down when I thank you very much for allowing us the opportunity to express our appreciation for the honour our constituents have done us and to the Prime Minister for staying as long as she did. As you know, I have always been a staunch supporter of maintaining conventions, but on this occasion your...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (26 Apr 2017)

Gerald Howarth: It has been an immense privilege to serve the people of Cannock and Burntwood and of Aldershot for the past 34 years. I arrived here in 1983, when one formidable and determined female Conservative Prime Minister was transforming the country’s economic fortunes, and I depart as another is determined to restore to this country the status of a sovereign nation state embracing the rest of the...

State Pensions: Uk Expatriates (20 Apr 2017)

Gerald Howarth: I apologise to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, and to the Minister for not having attended this debate. I had intended to do so, but I had other commitments. As I shall shortly be leaving the House, perhaps I could put on the record my support for our overseas pensioners, who have been badly treated. Many of them have almost been obliged to move abroad for family reasons, so it is not the case...

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: Although the Prime Minister did indeed support the remain side during the referendum campaign last year, she has demonstrated outstanding leadership of our country in implementing the will of the British people. So on this historic day, and recalling, of course, Sir Edward Elgar, and having campaigned myself in 1975 to leave the Common Market, may I salute the Prime Minister for her...

Yemen (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: Does the hon. Gentleman not accept that the Saudis have invited the United Nations to monitor the port movements? Would that not help to relieve the humanitarian problem?

Yemen (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: rose—

Yemen (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: I apologise for not being here for the right hon. Gentleman’s opening remarks, but I did hear him say that he had a meeting with General Asiri this morning, as I also did. The point he made to me was that the Saudis have the capacity to block the port—they are not doing so—and that the port is in the hands of the militia, who are taking their tithe on all the goods coming in. In fact,...

Hereditary Peers — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: I suspect the right hon. Gentleman has detected a certain discourtesy. May I assure him that none was intended whatever. I am sure he has brought a really important debate, and I assure him that he will be listened to with great interest, as always.

National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: The LIBOR fund, which was developed by our right hon. Friend the Member for Tatton (Mr Osborne), was a splendid initiative that has done a tremendous amount of good work. I was rather involved in the Bomber Command memorial, which was put together by a tiny group of people. This is a stunning and long overdue memorial to commemorate the 55,573 men who gave their lives in Bomber Command. In...

National Spitfire Project — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: May I say on behalf of all Conservative Members that we are delighted that the hon. Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan) made such a telling case for the Union—not only for the Union of the United Kingdom, but the union of the Kerevan household, in which England and Scotland are clearly united, as they are in my family? My parents, like his, served in the Royal Air Force during the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Eastern Ukraine (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: What assessment he has made of recent developments in eastern Ukraine.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Eastern Ukraine (28 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: Is it not clear, though, that unless we do more to help our Ukrainian friends, Russia will continue with impunity to seek to destabilise Ukraine? Given that the western Ukrainian-owned businesses in Donbass have just been expropriated by so-called separatists, no doubt with the support of Russia, perhaps we should consider expropriating Russian assets in the United Kingdom, starting with...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Excise Duties: Motor Vehicles (17 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will make an assessment of the implications for his policies of the finding of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association report on the economic impact of changes to the vehicle excise duty, published in February 2017, that those changes will result in rental companies purchasing 24,800 fewer vehicles in 2017 compared with 2016.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Repairs and Maintenance (14 Mar 2017)

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: Will my right hon. Friend give way to me?

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: I am grateful. May I say how much I support the Government’s commitment to the 2% minimum on defence spending? However, does my right hon. Friend agree that we are going to need every penny of it, given in particular that the Chinese—my right hon. Friend mentioned east of Suez—are seeking to colonise militarily a number of uninhabited atolls in the South China sea, which is...

Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Education relating to relationships and sex (7 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: Who will decide what is age-appropriate, and where is there any reference in any of these provisions to the moral dimension of this very important issue?

Sky/21ST Century Fox: Proposed Merger: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill (6 Mar 2017)

Gerald Howarth: I am sorry that I was not in my place at the start of my right hon. Friend’s speech on this important Bill. I am delighted that the Government are taking such action on lasers. Although, according to the eminent eye surgeon, Professor John Marshall, who is my constituent, irreversible damage is unlikely to be caused because of the distances at which these lasers are operated, the risk to...
