Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

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.

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Graham Stringer: Order.

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Graham Stringer: Order.

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Graham Stringer: Before I call the next speaker, may I ask the hon. Gentleman give a full and clear indication of his interest?

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

Graham Stringer: Thank you very much.

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

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.

Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention (7 Feb 2018)

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.

Proscription of Hezbollah (25 Jan 2018)

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.

Joint Enterprise (25 Jan 2018)

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...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

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...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Graham Stringer: Will the Secretary of State give way?

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

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?

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

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...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Graham Stringer: I am grateful for your comments, Mr Hanson. You are right I have not been present in this particular debate for the whole time, but I have been in many of the debates and this is the first time I have stood up to speak on the issue. I shall not detain the Committee for very long. Following on from the comments made by my hon. Friend the Member for Stockton South (Dr Williams), of course...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Graham Stringer: I have to say that I found it a bit curious, having voted for a referendum for many years, to find all my Labour colleagues finally in the same Lobby as me. The argument given by the leadership at the time was that the election had been lost, the public had voted by a majority for a referendum and it was going to recognise that. On the financial issues, I am always in favour of transparency,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Graham Stringer: I do not know what decisions will be made. I believe that the Government are likely to pay too much. Let us ask ourselves: why would we be paying money so that the rest of the EU can trade with us and every year sell us £70 billion more in goods than we are selling to the EU? Why is that a deal that we should be keen to support? I suspect that the Government will come back and put it...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Graham Stringer: I hope that my hon. Friend was listening to me when I was arguing in favour of transparency. I was arguing against the particular wording of these amendments, which I believe to be biased. Of course we should be transparent about what things cost, and we should have the right to have a view and determine what we think about that. Who could argue against that? All I am saying is that, if we...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Graham Stringer: I am sorry about this, Mr Hanson. I will not give way again after this intervention, because I did say that I would not take much time.
