Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I will come on to that in a minute. It is said that all archaeology is destruction, because when you take something out of its context you cannot return it to that context. It is therefore absolutely essential that the context of what we find—part of archaeology is what you do not find and might have expected to—is absolutely respected and recorded in order to fit together the jigsaw...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: My right hon. Friend makes a very valid point. I had not considered the prospect of mummified chimney sweeps as part of the archaeological excavations. I am pleased to hear that this issue was considered in pre-legislative scrutiny, which makes it even more surprising and even more of an omission that it did not make its way into the Bill. It is absolutely crucial. My right hon. Friend and I...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I absolutely do not accept that—the two are not mutually exclusive. The list of considerations that the Sponsor Body must “have regard to”—not “have a veto on” or “be a more important consideration”—includes “value for money”, “safety and security of people”, the protection of the environment, being “sustainable”, ensuring that it is accessible to visitors,...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: My right hon. Friend is dealing with the really modern stuff—I will go back a bit further in a minute. As you know more than many, Mr Deputy Speaker, the Palace of Westminster is one of the United Kingdom’s most famous landmarks for UK citizens and it attracts thousands of tourists every year. The reason Parliament is committed to investing billions of pounds in the restoration and...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: The hon. Gentleman does not know. Access might be provided through the cloisters if there were some compromise between access and—[Interruption.] That is what it is all about. It is impossible to compromise between two things if one of them is listed in the Bill and the other is apparently inconsequential. That is the whole point. Let us take an example. Last year, as part of the 100th...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I will do the rather unusual job, Mr Deputy Speaker, of talking to my amendment, which is amendment 5. I am delighted that the shadow Leader of the House, the hon. Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz), added her name to it. I am sure that will help to persuade the House that it would be a worthy addition to the Bill. Amendment 5 adds an additional consideration for the Sponsor Body to have...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: Examination by the Comptroller and Auditor General (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: There are certainly a lot of fossils on the Scottish National party Benches. [Laughter.] I thank the Minister for meeting me on this subject the other day—I know he takes an interest in it—and I pay tribute to the work done by the previous Leader of the House, my right hon. Friend the Member for South Northamptonshire (Andrea Leadsom), who worked over such a long time to make the Bill...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: Today is Thank a Teacher Day, and I am sure the whole House would want to express its gratitude to our hard-working, dedicated teachers. Earlier this week, a report from the Department for Education showed that children in coastal areas achieve lower grades than elsewhere, which means that children in constituencies such as mine have a double whammy, because West Sussex has historically been...

Petition - Climate Change (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I, too, wish to acknowledge the climate emergency declared by the House. I also wish to convey the sentiments shared by the good people of East Worthing and Shoreham, 123 of whom have presented this petition. It Declares that climate change is a serious and pressing concern and needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world. It further declares that the UK has a leading role to play...

Church Representation and Ministers Measure: Children and Young Persons (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I very much support the measure, but will the Minister just comment on this point? The lists have been brought together much more closely within the United Kingdom—I remember being a Minister in the days of List 99, which was a much more complicated system—but what progress has been made on the exchange of information with other countries? There are people who come to this country from...

Church Representation and Ministers Measure: Children and Young Persons (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: Allow me to throw the Minister the life raft of additional time. She might also like to comment on what used to be a real problem, particularly for teachers who were new to a school or newly qualified, which was the length of time it was taking for them to get their DBS clearance. Some teachers, in particular where we had shortages, were not able to take up their positions and that caused...

Church Representation and Ministers Measure: Children and Young Persons (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: It has occurred to me that I should have declared my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests before I asked the Minister those very important questions.

Church Representation and Ministers Measure (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I declare an interest as the son of a late vicar who looked after several churches. Will my right hon. Friend give me some assurances? I very much like the sound of less bureaucracy and greater flexibility for the parishes, but will she assure me that this is not a device that will be used to hasten the closure of churches as they are merged within super-parishes, or, as happened in my...

Church Representation and Ministers Measure (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: As there are not many other people here to intervene, I thought I might keep this going a little more. Madam Deputy Speaker, you may rule this out of order, but I ask because we have the Second Church Estates Commissioner here. Will my right hon. Friend comment on whether, within all the new measures, the disposal of bureaucracy will enable Church of England churches to bring forward the...

Hong Kong (18 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: Whether in respecting one country, two systems or the Chinese constitution that supposedly respects and protects the cultural diversity of various regions within China’s borders, the Chinese regime, as it has consistently shown itself, is not to be trusted. One need only look at the 1 million Tibetans who have lost their lives since the Chinese invasion, the countless hundreds and thousands...

Leaving the Eu: Business of the House (12 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: If recent election results have shown anything, it is the complete frustration of the British people with a failure to solve Brexit, and with Members of this House constantly saying what they do not support and do not believe in. Did my right hon. Friend hear anything in the 30-minute speech by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), or can he see...

Net Zero Emissions Target (12 Jun 2019)

Tim Loughton: I very much welcome this announcement. In two weeks’ time, the EYE—eco, young and engaged—project that I founded in 2008 will hold its 11th eco-summit in Worthing, attended by 250 local schoolchildren, to share environmental best practice. Does my right hon. Friend agree that those who most enthusiastically embrace the need to take urgent action on climate change are our youngest...
