NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Adrian Bailey: An omission from this otherwise welcome statement was any mention of capital spending. It is vital for future health outcomes in the Black country and west Birmingham that the midland metro hospital, currently half built and suspended following Carillion’s collapse, is completed. Will the Secretary of State tell me where in this package the funding will be found for that, and when?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Jun 2018)

Adrian Bailey: The decision by JLR to invest in electric vehicles is very welcome, but equally the decision to produce the Discovery model in Slovakia is profoundly worrying. Does the Secretary of State agree that it underlines the need for tariff-free access for both cars and components in the EU?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Teachers (4 Jun 2018)

Adrian Bailey: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what proportion of teaching graduates have gone on to work in schools in (a) England, (b) the West Midlands and (c) Sandwell Metropolitan Borough in each of the last five years.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Teachers (4 Jun 2018)

Adrian Bailey: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps his Department is taking to ensure teaching students go on to work in schools once they have graduated.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Jaguar Land Rover (1 May 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Last year, the Treasury announced a £400 million public-private sector fund to develop charging infrastructure for plug-in cars. This is vital for the development and growth of that market. To date, however, no one has even been appointed to manage that fund. Will the Minister tell me when the fund will be operational?

Customs and Borders (26 Apr 2018)

Adrian Bailey: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders announced today that there has been a 14% drop in the output of cars manufactured in this country over the past year, and emphasised that certainty over our negotiations and access to the EU market is essential for the future prosperity of that industry and our economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: Defence and Military Aerospace Industry (23 Apr 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Leaving the EU: Defence and Military Aerospace Industry (23 Apr 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Last month, we heard that the UK could no longer participate in the Galileo satellite programme post Brexit. That is a huge blow for our industry as a whole and our defence capabilities in particular. Will the Minister tell us exactly what he is doing about it?

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I welcome this industrial strategy for two reasons in particular. First, it recognises that business productivity is vital for growth, competitiveness, our standard of living and the funding of our public services. Secondly, it acknowledges that the hidden hand of free-market competition is inadequate to ensure that market forces will deliver resources in a way that will both maximise our...

GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose (27 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: The Melrose commitment not to sell the GKN aerospace division before 2023 falls well short of the investment cycles of 20 to 40 years needed in the aerospace industry. It also fails to meet the concerns expressed by companies such as Airbus about the security of the long-term availability of the products they need. Will the Secretary of State commit to take whatever action is necessary,...

Leaving the Eu: Uk Ports (Customs) (19 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Jaguar Land Rover is postponing investment in a new generation of electric vehicles until it is satisfied that there will be frictionless trade with the EU. Given that the Government have ruled out a customs union with the EU, what arrangements will the Government make that will both be achievable with the EU and satisfy Jaguar Land Rover so that it invests in much-needed electric vehicles?

Backbench Business: GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: My experience of parliamentary scrutiny of takeover bids, from Kraft and Cadbury to Pfizer and AstraZeneca and, I hope, this one, is that, irrespective of the outcome, the fact that Parliament has scrutinised it has benefited the outcome—first, by holding the Government to account, and secondly, by holding the participant companies to account. I make no apologies for having the debate,...

Backbench Business: GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: I beg to move, That this House has considered the proposed takeover of GKN by Melrose. I start by saying what a pleasure it is to serve under your chairship, Mr Stringer. I think it appropriate to mention as a matter of interest that, as a trustee of the Industry and Parliament Trust, a few years ago I undertook a secondment at GKN and witnessed some of its activities throughout the world at...

Backbench Business: GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: The hon. Gentleman has put his finger on an issue that I will develop at some length during my speech. He is absolutely correct. Perhaps I should state that, from a philosophical or ideological point of view, I am not anti-private sector. I am not anti-City. I recognise that globalisation is a potential force for good, even though it does throw up some considerable challenges and needs to be...

Backbench Business: GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: My hon. Friend anticipates some of the points in my speech. I agree with him completely. GKN holds the position as one of the world’s greatest tier 1 providers in part because of the number of portfolios it holds worldwide with other joint venture companies, as well as with British companies, but also because of its research, development and technological advances, particularly in the...

Backbench Business: GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Absolutely. The hon. Lady puts her finger on a very important point. Productivity in the motor and aerospace industries is way ahead in manufacturing overall, and in other types of business as well. Anything that damages such industries will damage the level of productivity in our economy, which we all know is a matter of considerable concern. GKN not only invests in research and development...

Backbench Business: GKN: Proposed Takeover by Melrose — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: My hon. Friend anticipates, with great foresight, some of the potential developments if the takeover were allowed to happen. I believe that there are broader issues, however. The GKN takeover is a case that goes well beyond defence. It is relevant to our productivity, as the hon. Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean) said, to our economy and research capabilities, and to the jobs and pensions...

Diplomatic Service and Resources — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Mar 2018)

Adrian Bailey: Order. Interventions should be short and not speeches. I want to bring the Front-Bench spokespersons in at 10.30, so would everybody bear that in mind?
