Iran (16 Oct 2017)

Nicholas Soames: Given the President’s astonishingly bovine decision—even by his standards—to de-certify the joint comprehensive plan of action, against the best military and intelligence advice available to him, will my right hon. Friend assure the House that although we acknowledge, as he did, the very considerable difficulties in dealing with Iran outside this agreement, it is through...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Nicholas Soames: As my right hon. Friend wrestles with the inevitable compromises essential to securing the opportunities of Brexit in the national interest, and in view of this enormous administrative challenge, will she consider refining the machinery of government by creating an inner Cabinet to drive forward the work across the Government and thus retain greater grip and control over the whole process?

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Roads: Mid Sussex (13 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: Mid Sussex is greatly looking forward to the Secretary of State’s visit in early September to see the serious problems we have on the roads. Does the Minister agree that it is cardinally bad, rotten government to go on pushing housing into constituencies such as mine without investing in the infrastructure there in the first place? It is not a matter for West Sussex County Council; it...

High Speed 2: Electronic Deposit of Documents (11 Jul 2017)

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: As America appears to be voluntarily surrendering both power and influence, and with our impending departure from the main platform of our influence over the past several decades, is it not vital that the Foreign Office now invests substantially to beef up our diplomatic effort so that we may retain our prosperity, security and influence abroad?

Estimates 2017-18: Neighbourhood Planning (4 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: I welcome my hon. Friend to his new job and look forward to working with him. Does he agree that what is extremely important is, as my hon. Friend the Member for Henley (John Howell) said, that although many developers behave perfectly properly, there are others who game the system? That is extremely prevalent in Mid Sussex. May I ask the Minister whether or not what he has just said will...

Estimates 2017-18: Neighbourhood Planning (4 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: I thank my hon. Friend for all his work on neighbourhood planning, and particularly for supporting and advising me in Mid Sussex, which is in exactly the position he describes.

Friend the Member for Tunbridge Wells (Greg...

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: I agree with every word that the hon. Gentleman says, but does he agree that it is now all the more important to come to an agreement between all the parties, so that this infrastructure investment may proceed? Without it, it frankly would not make sense to create that level of infrastructure.

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: My right hon. Friend and I have been working on this for a very long time as next-door neighbours. If all that is correct, as it is, can he tell us, with all that we have examined and learned about it, what he thinks this strike is about?

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Nicholas Soames: My right hon. Friend is well aware of the terrible inconvenience suffered by my constituents in Mid Sussex and by many others along the line because of this and earlier strikes. Is he aware of the unions, working together, being encouraged by the Labour party? Or does he see this as a straight inter-union rivalry?

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Nicholas Soames: I want to start by extending on behalf of all my constituents our most profound sympathy to the victims, and their families, of the horrific events that have recently taken place in Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury, and the appalling Grenfell Tower fire. I think the whole nation was greatly taken by the Queen’s response after the fire that she was “profoundly struck by the...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (27 Apr 2017)

Nicholas Soames: As my right hon. Friend proceeds with the immense task of delivering a responsible and good Brexit for the country and, most especially at these difficult times, for Mid Sussex, does he agree that we cannot pretend to be a global player without running an open economy, with an orderly, non-bureaucratic immigration policy that allows our businesses and public services to access the people and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (24 Apr 2017)

Syria and North Korea (18 Apr 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Enriched Culture Medium Test (21 Mar 2017)

Nicholas Soames: My hon. Friend will be aware from his reading of the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit report that the incidence of group B strep has increased by 30% over the last 15 years.
