Desmond Swayne: We trade effectively without them. They often come with producer-interest strings attached. They might be nice to have, but we do not need them, do we?
Desmond Swayne: In God’s own town of Lymington a robber was captured but had to be released because there was no police officer available to be sent. We do need more police officers, don’t we?
Desmond Swayne: Is it reasonable for me to expect to pass my assets and property to my heirs unencumbered and intact and at the same time to expect the taxpayer to pay for my social care?
Desmond Swayne: But are we planning to continue to let victims down by persisting with inadequate sentencing and early release?
Desmond Swayne: Whatever the decision of the Court, will the Minister give consideration in his deliberations to the fact that many on these Benches have a preference for our own law made in this House over the provisions of European human rights law?
Desmond Swayne: A decision outside the GRU by the Russian state at a senior level—she means President Putin, doesn’t she?
Desmond Swayne: Prisoners who are at leisure to consume and trade Spice would benefit from penal servitude with hard labour. Will the Minister bring it back?
Desmond Swayne: How can we speed up planning without offending against the proper discretion of planning authorities?
Desmond Swayne: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. It would be a matter of great convenience to some of us to have all email accounts closed down.
Desmond Swayne: The hon. Member for Battersea (Marsha De Cordova) has spoken of a culture of indifference, but the bill for disability benefits this year will be £5.4 billion higher than it was in 2010.

Desmond Swayne: Let the law take its course. By what factor did the Government and the other remain campaigns outspend the leave campaigns? It was 2:1, was it not?
Desmond Swayne: This is the petition of Mrs Melanie Ealing and constituents of New Forest West, who similarly complain that the home education community was not properly consulted and similarly requests that the House of Commons urges the Government to withdraw the draft guidance and the consultation. Following is the full text of the petition: [The petition of residents of the New Forest West, Declare that...
Desmond Swayne: I have a very successful manufacturer in my constituency abiding by the very disciplines that my right hon. Friend has, rightly, been so effusive about. Imagine, then, my surprise when I discovered that the proprietor and chief executive of this organisation, Col-Tec—one Mike Bailey—was to be my opponent as the UKIP candidate in the New Forest West division.
Desmond Swayne: Will my right hon. Friend give way?
Desmond Swayne: rose—
Desmond Swayne: But any scrutiny of and consultation on manufactures and food will be limited to tariff and quota, because we will continue to be bound by the acquis, won’t we?
Desmond Swayne: Two per cent. must not be the measure. Rather, it should be the capability to deliver lethal effect, shouldn’t it?
Desmond Swayne: How can my right hon. Friend justify the use of the adjective “common” in describing the noun “rulebook”, when he has committed to ongoing harmonisation? Even with a parliamentary process, it is their rulebook, is it not?
Desmond Swayne: Persuade me that the common rulebook is not the acquis by another name.
