Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty: Pairing (23 Jul 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the broken pair did not alter the result of the vote and the Government would have still won the vote?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: The Prime Minister is not dealing with the theory of leaving the European Union—she is dealing with the practice of leaving the EU. Will she assure me that the Chequers agreement allows the continuation of the situation that has seen the UK get more inward investment over the past 30 years—under both parties—than we could possibly have anticipated? That is good news for the...

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: In recognising that this deal will probably not be completed until the very last minute, as we have seen in previous deals, I urge my right hon.

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: There is no doubt that large-scale infrastructure projects will always be controversial, and no doubt that this is a large-scale infrastructure project that is incredibly controversial.

It was an attempt to try to get an...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. I urge SNP Members, even at this late stage, to change their minds on this and follow through on what they say they support with their votes, because this is too important a matter not to do so.

Patrick McLoughlin: I am grateful to my hon. Friend and agree with him.

Without the expansion, there will be no change. With the expansion, there will be a number of changes—not least, an extension of the ban on scheduled night flights...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Patrick McLoughlin: I agree with my right hon. Friend. When the Secretary of State made his statement three weeks ago, I raised that point with him, and he was very clear on it. This is one of the biggest infrastructure projects that the country faces over the next 10 years. We have been better on infrastructure over the past few years. We are about to see the opening of the Elizabeth line, which will make a...
