E-cigarettes — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (31 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: I put on record my thanks to the right hon. Gentleman for his time chairing the Select Committee on Science and Technology. It has been an interesting period, in which we have gone into great detail—effectively, I think—on many subjects. I was annoyed that NHS England, which has the time to put out often crass and obvious statements on health, did not have the time to come and give us...

E-cigarettes — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (31 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: It is not only the World Health Organisation that is not using evidence for its advice, but the EU. The EU’s directive on the size of the bowls used and the amount of substance put in is not based on evidence. It is likely to mean that those people getting a nicotine kick—much less dangerous than cigarettes—will not find the products satisfactory and will go back to smoking.

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Plastic Pollution (31 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: Plastic was rare when I was brought up in the 1950s, so is it possible for the Government to set targets to get us back to those low levels? Recycling just delays the amount of plastic going into the environment.

Plastic Food and Drink Packaging — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: Minister, may I ask you to leave, if possible, 90 seconds to two minutes for the Chair of the Select Committee to wind up?

Plastic Food and Drink Packaging — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: Order. May I ask the hon. Gentleman to bring his speech to a conclusion within the next couple of minutes so that there is equal time for the Labour spokesperson and the Minister? I have divided the time from the start of his speech to the end of the debate approximately into three. I would be grateful if he began to bring his speech to a close.

Plastic Food and Drink Packaging — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his co-operation.

Plastic Food and Drink Packaging — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: Would any hon. Members wishing to speak stand up so I can see them? [Interruption.] It looks as though we have plenty of time, so there is no need for any kind of time limit.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Emissions (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether her Department has received from the Committee on Climate Change an estimate of the costs of achieving net zero carbon emissions in each year from 2020 to 2049.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Emissions (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what estimate she has made of the cost to the public purse of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in each year between 2020 and 2050.

Transport: HS2 (24 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: Any change to the route of HS2 is likely to lead to further delays and extra cost. Is not the solution to HS2 to put competent people in charge of delivering it, and not to mess about with it and give an advantage to those who are opposed to it?

Exploitation of Missing Looked-after Children — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Oct 2019)

Graham Stringer: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case about a very serious subject. Does she agree that since the Greater Manchester Police introduced the iOPS computer system, children in Greater Manchester are at even more risk than before? Children who go missing overnight are not being registered, and the information is not getting through to police officers when they come on duty the next morning....

Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate (26 Sep 2019)

Graham Stringer: I am grateful to the Minister. He is absolutely right: all the political parties have, at one time or another, made a commitment to a referendum. In their 2010 manifestos, the three major parties gave a commitment to hold a referendum on what became the Lisbon treaty, better known as the European constitution, although unfortunately the majority of MPs did not comply with those manifesto...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Graham Stringer: A new argument has come forward. A number of parties have said that if there is a second referendum, they will honour the result only if people vote in a particular way. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that would completely undermine that referendum, and all future referendums?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Infrastructure (18 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I was surprised to find that the charging sockets are not standardised, either on cars or on charging points. Would it not make sense to regulate to standardise them?

BBC — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: It is a pleasure to see you in your place, Dame Cheryl—having recently supported HS2, I am sure.

BBC — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: Right. David Plowright was one of the great leaders of commercial television. He was the chief executive of Granada Television for many years, where great documentaries and “World in Action” were produced, as well as groundbreaking drama and excellent regional news, and he went on to become the deputy chair of Channel 4. His criteria for the BBC—one of his main competitors—was that...

BBC — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: That is a reasonable point as far as it goes. The BBC has not only paid very high salaries in a discriminatory way over the last five years; when it was found to be discriminating, it increased those salaries. It is the case that there are places within the BBC that have to compete commercially, but the fact that it has increased the number of people presenting sports programmes surely shows...

BBC — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: But of course you should be.

High Speed 2 (10 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: My right hon. Friend makes a brilliant case. If anything, he underestimates the result. When the Transport Committee went to France to look at the impact of the TGV, it found that the go-ahead cities that used the high-speed lines got huge extra investment that had not been calculated in the original assessment. Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds are all go-ahead cities, so I expect more jobs...

High Speed 2 (10 Jul 2019)

Graham Stringer: I have great respect for the right hon. Lady, but she is fundamentally wrong on this issue, although she is right to criticise the way in which the Department for Transport uses travel times. In the assessment of all transport infrastructure, the Department fails to take into account the economic investment that always follows investment in transport. The case is the opposite of what she is...
