Gary Streeter: Thank you very much. Mr Stephen Hammond will have the final word.
Gary Streeter: Before I call the Minister to respond, I ask him to leave two minutes for Mr Hammond to have the final word.
Gary Streeter: There is a minute to go.
Gary Streeter: We have 30 minutes until the Front-Bench speeches begin and three people are seeking to catch my eye. Even I can do the maths: there are no more than 10 minutes each, including interventions.
Gary Streeter: I am sure the Secretary of State shares my horror at recent reports about the sex trafficking and exploitation of children in unmonitored orphanages. Is this not something that the international community should look to stamp out, and will she do her utmost to move it up the global political agenda for action?
Gary Streeter: The hon. Gentleman mentions the importance of the crew to the local economy—they are very much part of our culture. He is probably aware of a study that either the council or the university—I forget which—did about 10 years ago. It showed that, surprisingly, quite a large proportion of the crew of any ship base-ported in Plymouth—or anywhere else, I imagine—live...
Gary Streeter: Order. The hon. Lady is not giving way.
Gary Streeter: We come to the Front-Bench speeches. The Scottish National party and Labour party spokespeople have five minutes each and the Minister has 10 minutes.
Gary Streeter: There are two more Back Benchers to go. They have two and a half minutes each, please.
Gary Streeter: Thank you very much for setting a good example. I call Bob Stewart.
Gary Streeter: Order. Winding-up speeches will begin at 27 minutes past 5. There are three minutes for each speech.
Gary Streeter: We will move directly on to our next debate, which is extremely popular. There will be 20 minutes for the winding-up speeches. After Sir Henry Bellingham has spoken for a smart 10 minutes, that leaves about 30 minutes for eight Back-Bench contributions. My maths tells me that that is just over three minutes each. I will not impose a time limit, but if hon. Members have a voluntary time limit...
Gary Streeter: Mr Jayawardena has 20 seconds to wind up.
Gary Streeter: Order. I remind Members that the debate closes at 4.17 pm. If the mover of the motion were given two minutes to have the final word that would be wonderful.
Gary Streeter: I call the Minister. If he could leave two minutes at the end for Mr Baron to respond, that would be most helpful.
Gary Streeter: The hon. Lady spoke most powerfully.
Gary Streeter: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.
Gary Streeter: We live in a London-centric country. Can my right hon. Friend update the House on what he is doing to ensure that Government Departments are relocated to other parts of the United Kingdom, including, of course, the great south-west?
Gary Streeter: When I met Devon’s secretary of the Royal College of Nursing recently to discuss nurses’ pay, she made the obvious point that she was getting a bit fed up with politicians saying that they valued nurses while not actually adding to their pay packets. Does my right hon. Friend agree that from today not only will we be saying that we value nurses, but that that will be reflected in...
Gary Streeter: Will my right hon. Friend seek to install a sense of urgency into Departments, perhaps starting with the Department for Transport? Once again, following heavy rainfall, the line from London to Plymouth has been cut—I hope, temporarily—due to flooding in the Exeter region. There is a plan to fix it, but it is taking far too long, and my constituents are fed up about it—and so...
