Points of Order (17 Jul 2018)

Laurence Robertson: On a point of order of which I gave you notice some hours ago, Mr Speaker. In 1975, Short money was introduced for Opposition parties to carry out their parliamentary duties. In 2006, a change was made and representative money was introduced for Members of those parties who do not take their seats in this House and therefore do not partake in the work of this House. I understand that one...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Laurence Robertson: I rise to speak to new clause 37, which is in my name and those of my hon and right hon. Friends. I will press the new clause at the appropriate time. It would make it “unlawful for Her Majesty’s Government to enter into arrangements under which Northern Ireland forms part of a separate customs territory to Great Britain.” The purpose is simple: it is to secure the future of...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Laurence Robertson: Of course I completely agree with the hon. Gentleman, although I hope we always do have a Unionist Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister said in December “the whole of the United Kingdom, including Northern Ireland, will leave the EU customs union and the EU single market. Nothing in the agreement I have reached alters that...

Laurence Robertson: I know through personal experience the good work DFID does with the Foreign Office in promoting trade with developing countries.

That case and the individuals concerned may not be referred to in today’s debate....

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Laurence Robertson: The aerospace industry is important to my Tewkesbury constituency. Did the Secretary of State notice, on the day of the announcement, that American company, GE Aviation, announced that it was going to rebuild its propeller business, which supplies a significant proportion of the world’s propellers, in my constituency of Tewkesbury, here in the United Kingdom? Is that not a vote of...

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Laurence Robertson: I congratulate the Secretary of State on at last moving this issue forward. Does he agree that the delays, which have been caused by successive Governments, have caused the UK to lose a lot of business? For example, Dublin is already getting on with expanding its airport. I know that there are restrictions and difficulties, but may I ask him—so that this country does not continue to...

Nuclear Power (4 Jun 2018)

Laurence Robertson: Horizon Nuclear Power employs 350 people in my constituency, and I visited Hitachi in Tokyo fairly recently, so I welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement today. Does he agree that the fault over the past 30 years has been the failure of successive Governments to replace the existing nuclear power stations? I urge him to press ahead with these projects for the very reasons that he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Numbers (4 Jun 2018)

Laurence Robertson: I thank the Home Secretary for that response. Tackling terrorism is obviously extremely important, but the more immediate concern for people each and every day comes from crimes such as burglary and antisocial behaviour. Is he confident that police forces such as Gloucestershire’s will have sufficient officers to follow up complaints about those crimes and see them through right to the end?
