United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: I rise to support clauses 46 and 47 and to disagree with the Opposition amendments. It is a great pity that the SNP wishes to turn every debate in this House into a debate on independence when they lost the referendum, because, as a great democrat, I have only ever wanted willing volunteers in our Union. I was delighted to support a referendum to leave it to the Scottish people, and I trust...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: I do not see any problem at all. I cannot for one moment believe that the United Kingdom Government would want to force on Scotland a project that Scottish people did not wish. Nor do I recognise this idea of the sovereign Scottish Parliament; it is completely under the power of the European Union until we have properly left. The hon. Gentleman never seems to recognise the ultimate power of...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: No, most certainly that is not the point, and that is not my position. I am a democrat, and I have accepted completely the results of the referendums on devolution. It is quite true that I and my party were on the other side in the referendum on devolution. I believed that it would to lead to a big insurgence in unsuccessful Scottish nationalism, which is exactly what it did, and I do not...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: I do not accept that it does any of those things. I think we are legislating in a perfectly legal and sensible manner. I shall go back to the remarks I wish to make as to why it is better that we pay for our own projects rather than doing so with the big discounts on our money through the European Union. The second reason for that is that some of the European schemes required the project to...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: I am not pursuing a hard Brexit; I am pursuing the independence of our country which was voted on all too many years ago and which this Parliament, in a previous guise, deliberately blocked, delayed and diluted. I am very proud to belong to a Parliament that is now clearly charged, yet again, by the electorate of the United Kingdom to get on with it and deliver Brexit. The hon. Gentleman...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 28 - Functions of the CMA under this Part: general provisions (15 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: Will my hon. Friend confirm that the Bill says that these reports, which are not in themselves binding, are made to the Scottish Parliament as well as to the United Kingdom Parliament? Because of course, the Scottish Parliament will have enhanced powers as a result of our leaving the EU just as the Union Parliament will.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Clinical Trials (15 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the most recent results are of trials of existing approved medicines as potential treatments for covid-19.

Awarding of Qualifications: Role of Ministers (9 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: Having listened to the exchanges and read some of the documents before the debate, I am satisfied that the Secretary of State asked Ofqual to deliver the right answers. It is disappointing that its algorithm did not work and it was right that it had to be changed. Once the decision had been taken to close schools and not to proceed with exams, I think the best answer probably was to look to...

Awarding of Qualifications: Role of Ministers (9 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: I am delighted that the Opposition rightly wish to see children properly educated. I have never doubted that they wanted to see children properly educated—that must be a shared view that we all hold—but it would certainly be good if the Opposition carried on in the spirit of co-operation and responded to some of the consultations, for example, because very important decisions will now be...

Awarding of Qualifications: Role of Ministers (9 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: Can the hon. Gentleman give the House an update on the summer term in Scotland? How many pupils had the benefit of a full timetable of teaching digitally?

Awarding of Qualifications: Role of Ministers (9 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that up until the point when the policy clearly had to change, he was always assured by Ofqual that the very sensible aims and instructions he had given it on a fair system of moderated results were going to work?

Awarding of Qualifications: Role of Ministers (9 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: In the spirit of co-operation across the Chamber, I am sure that we all want to do the right thing for the class of 2021, so does Labour want the exams to be later next year to give more time for tuition?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Hospitals: Private Sector (9 Sep 2020)

Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill [Lords]: Schedule - Power of arrest for extradition purposes (8 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: We had a good debate earlier today, but I hope the Minister will come back to this House erelong on a couple of important issues explored in the earlier debate. The first is the protection of British citizens who are the object of one of these extradition requirements once we have entered into these agreements. My right hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) made a...

Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Power of Arrest for Extradition Purposes (8 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: The hon. Gentleman is making a very good point. Has he done any study of the impact of the European arrest warrant and whether that has had adverse consequences in the way that he thinks Interpol does?

Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Power of Arrest for Extradition Purposes (8 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: Two very important principles should be in all our thoughts when framing extradition legislation. First, there is the imperative to make sure that where someone has committed a serious and violent crime, such as a terrorist offence or murder or some other such crime, in the United Kingdom and has escaped abroad, we have arrangements so that we can pursue justice against them through...

Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Power of Arrest for Extradition Purposes (8 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that when these measures came in quite a number of us on the Opposition Benches were uneasy about the asymmetry and unfairness? It is good to see him reviewing the matter at this late stage.

Northern Ireland Protocol: UK Legal Obligations (8 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: The EU signed a withdrawal agreement and political declaration with two things at its core: it would respect the restoration of UK sovereignty, and it would work for a free trade, tariff-free agreement. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that if the EU kept its word on those two colossally important points, the problems it has created in Northern Ireland would disappear?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Road Traffic Control: Urban Areas (8 Sep 2020)

John Redwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what funding is available for local authorities to improve junction safety and capacity and to remove bottlenecks to make it easier for people to get into town centres by car and van.
