Energy Update (5 Sep 2022)

Desmond Swayne: The Minister said that the rise in price was a result of the attack on Ukraine. It is much more than that: it is a deliberate part of the attack on Ukraine.

Assisted Dying — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (4 Jul 2022)

Desmond Swayne: My father’s last six months were horrible and frightful. Yes, I did want him to die more quickly, to end his suffering. However, he did not. He wanted to come home. I would therefore not change the law. We have heard much about the polling, but the fact is there is nothing new there. Ever since we started polling on this question, there have been large majorities in favour of changing the...

Assisted Dying — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (4 Jul 2022)

Assisted Dying — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (4 Jul 2022)

Desmond Swayne: I have given way enough and my right hon. Friend has had his say. I accept entirely that people are put in a dreadful position if they have a terminal diagnosis. They have the capacity to end their lives but they want to live a bit longer and are worried about the loss of that capacity to end their lives, putting their friends and relatives in a difficult position. But it is a mistake to...

Church Commissioners: Institutional Racism (23 Jun 2022)

Desmond Swayne: The decision to refuse to ordain Calvin Robinson was a missed opportunity, but my hon. Friend is both a fair-minded and God-fearing person. I hope I can rely on him to ask the bishops to pray, reflect and reconsider.

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Jun 2022)

Desmond Swayne: Taking back control is to apply to the European Court of Human Rights too, isn’t it?

Private Rented Sector (16 Jun 2022)

Desmond Swayne: Madam Deputy Speaker, can I refer you to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests? Rents are rising because of a shortage of properties in the market as landlords flee from it. Has the Minister considered that these measures may have the very reverse effect of that which he intends?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Desmond Swayne: I suggest that the Secretary of State addresses a problem to which national parks are particularly prone, where a historic lawful development certificate is acquired because a caravan was previously located there, affording huge development on the basis of permitted development rights over which the national park authority and the planning authority have no control. That is a power that needs...
