Graham Stringer: Before I call the Minister, I ask him to leave three minutes at the end to allow Adrian Bailey to sum up.
Graham Stringer: Order. I would remind Members that interventions should be brief.
Graham Stringer: Order. Five Back-Bench Members want to speak, and the arithmetic is straightforward. I intend to call the Scottish National party spokesperson at 4 o’clock, so I hope that people will respect that time.
Graham Stringer: Before I call the Minister, the proposer of the motion has waived her right to reply, so the Minister has until 4 o’clock.
Graham Stringer: Order.
Graham Stringer: Order. I ask those in the Public Gallery not to intervene either vocally or by applause.
Graham Stringer: Order.
Graham Stringer: Before I call the next speaker, may I ask the hon. Gentleman give a full and clear indication of his interest?
Graham Stringer: Thank you very much.
Graham Stringer: The debate is highly over-subscribed, so I will impose a time limit when Sarah Champion sits down. If hon. Members intervene on her—she says she is willing to take interventions—they will go down the order of speakers, because it looks like, even with a time limit, there will not be sufficient time to call everybody who has requested to speak.
Graham Stringer: Order. I am going to impose a three-minute time limit. The Scottish National party spokesperson, the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady), has kindly offered to give up three or four minutes of his time, so I will call him at about 3.34 pm.
Graham Stringer: My right hon. Friend is making a powerful case. Does she agree that, as well as being anti-Semitic, Hezbollah has assassinated and murdered Christians? As the hon. Member for Richmond Park (Zac Goldsmith) has said, any distinction between a military part and a political part of Hezbollah is entirely without meaning.
Graham Stringer: I congratulate my hon. Friend on bringing this important subject to the Floor of the House. I have had reason to represent one of my constituents, Jace Ryan Smith, who was convicted and sentenced to 31 years under joint enterprise. He was doubly punished recently because he was not allowed to go to his grandmother’s funeral, not because of anything he had done wrong but because Greater...
Graham Stringer: My hon. Friend knows that we do not agree on many issues relating to the EU, but we were both elected on the same glorious day in May 1997, and he will remember that our postbags then were full of campaigns to stop the export of live animals to Europe. The reason that that did not happen was not a lack of political will. The reason that the Labour Government, the coalition Government and the...
Graham Stringer: Will the Secretary of State give way?
Graham Stringer: If I heard the Secretary of State correctly, he was confirming the article in The Sunday Times saying that the full contract, as it was let, was not legally enforceable. If that is the case, will he confirm it, and will he explain to the House why he agreed a contract that was not legally enforceable? If it is not true, why will he not demand the full £2 billion?
Graham Stringer: The Secretary of State mentioned increasing trade with the developing world. Does he agree that the European Union has been the greatest single mechanism for exporting poverty to the third world, with its high tariffs on foodstuffs, and that when we leave the European Union we will be able to give our own consumers the benefit of cheaper citrus fruits, as well as helping poorer farmers in...
Graham Stringer: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, pursuant to the Answer of 12 December 2017 to Question 117247, on NHS: Per Capita Costs, what per capita expenditure on the NHS was at 2010 prices in each region of England in each of the last seven years.
Graham Stringer: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what per capita expenditure on the NHS was in each of the last seven years at 2010 prices.
Graham Stringer: rose—
