The reviewers praised the fund for being flexible and responsive to UK national security priorities, for demonstrating excellent conflict analysis and for mainstreaming gender equality...

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

David Lidington: I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is attending the NATO summit in Brussels. I know that Members on both sides of this House would like to join me in paying tribute to Lord Carrington, who died on Monday. His was an extraordinary life of public service, including as Defence Secretary, Foreign Secretary, and Secretary General of NATO. I am sure, too, that all...

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

David Lidington: This is of course a tragedy that has caused unimaginable hardship and pain for the people affected. Let me say straightaway that we recognise the hard work that the hon. Gentleman and others from all political parties here have put into campaigning on this issue. In relation to the specific issue that the hon. Gentleman raises, I am sure he will understand that whether or not the inquiry...

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

David Lidington: My hon. Friend is right to say that the accessibility of local officers is a vital principle of British policing. He will know that we have provided a strong and comprehensive settlement that is increasing total investment in the police system by more than £460 million in this financial year, and for Lancashire police specifically, we have provided more than £6 million for 2017-18....

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

David Lidington: I think that the England team does teach some good lessons about the importance of having a clear plan which the leader, the team captain, has the full support of the squad in delivering. We will of course be publishing tomorrow full details of the United Kingdom plan for Brexit, which we will be putting to the British public and to our 27 European partners. When the right hon. Lady gets up...

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

David Lidington: The right hon. Lady will see the detail in the White Paper but, if she had been listening to my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on Monday, she would have heard the Prime Minister explain very clearly that we believe a combination of the common rulebook on goods and on agri-food, coupled with the facilitated customs arrangement that we are proposing, will provide just that. What is more,...

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

David Lidington: No, I am afraid the right hon. Lady is incorrect in her assumptions. For a start, the customs model that we are proposing would not, under the arrangements that we suggest, affect either imports or exports involving this country and the European Union. They would not involve exports from this country to the rest of the world. We are talking about imports to this country from non-EU member...

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

David Lidington: I am afraid the right hon. Lady might not have sat through all the Prime Minister’s statement and responses to questions on Monday, but my right hon. Friend made it very clear that we are actively looking in these new circumstances—frankly, we would, as a sensible Government, be looking anyway—at the opportunities that new technology offers, and will offer in the future, to...

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

David Lidington: First, I think that the right hon. Lady still misunderstands the customs arrangements that we are proposing, and I advise her to look at the White Paper when it is published tomorrow. The reason we are proposing to treat services differently is that it is in services that regulatory flexibility matters most for both current and future trading opportunities. Although the EU acquis on goods has...

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

David Lidington: Again, the right hon. Lady keeps silent about what the Labour party is proposing. The truth is—[Interruption.]

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

David Lidington: The Labour party says that it would strike new trade deals, but its plan to stay in the customs union would prevent that because it would bind us to the common commercial policy for all time. It used to say that it would control our borders, but it backed an amendment to the withdrawal Bill to let freedom of movement continue. The Labour party also used to say that it respected the referendum...

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

David Lidington: The right hon. Lady gave away her misunderstanding, as her question seemed to imply that she thinks Norway is in a customs union with the European Union. It is not. What we have on the table from the Government is a comprehensive set of proposals that we believe will deliver for British business in terms of frictionless trade and will deliver on what people voted for in the...

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

David Lidington: Reports of crimes involving motorcycles, mopeds and scooters are clearly a concern. We have been working with the police, industry and other partners to develop a comprehensive action plan to focus on what works and what more needs to be done. The police are now using new tactics, including off-road bikes and DNA marker sprays, to catch those committing these crimes. My right hon. Friend the...

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

David Lidington: The right hon. Gentleman reminds us that the horror of Srebrenica 23 years ago should remind us all of the intolerance that still exists in the world and why we all have a duty to do what we can to confront and overcome it and to promote genuine reconciliation. My right hon. Friend the Leader of the House will have heard his request for a debate. I hope that the whole House will also, while...

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

David Lidington: I disagree with the right hon. Gentleman. This country’s relationship with the United States of America is probably the closest between any two democracies in the west. It has lasted through Democrat and Republican presidencies alike and through Labour and Conservative premierships on this side of the Atlantic. Because of the security co-operation that we have with the United States, UK...
