Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Henry Bellingham: First, I thank my hon. and right hon. Members for their support. What has been notable in this debate is the extraordinary cross-party support and the strong support from all parts of the United Kingdom: Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland and many different parts of the country. There is overwhelming support for the changes. I should not forget the official Opposition, who gave significant...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Henry Bellingham: I beg to move, That this House has considered the future of society lotteries, the Health Lottery and limits on prize values. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward, in this important debate. You will remember that the launch of a national lottery back in the days of the Major Government was one of that Government’s great successes. When history is written,...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Henry Bellingham: That is a good point. Camelot has become complacent. It has a new chief executive now, as we know, but my right hon. Friend is absolutely correct. Conservatives remember well when it was launched, because we were in government at the time. There was a tremendous spirit of innovation and a great deal of aspiration, but Camelot has been there for a long time now, and has made some bad mistakes....

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Henry Bellingham: My hon. Friend makes a good point, which I will come to in a moment. One key aspect of the argument is that society lotteries complement the national lottery and do not compete directly with it. There is room for them both to operate. The big difference, obviously, is the prize cap. As I pointed out, society lotteries are limited to 10% of the value of any one draw, with a theoretical maximum...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Dec 2017)

Henry Bellingham: Will the Prime Minister give us a quick update on the Brexit negotiations? Does she agree that, post-Brexit, it will be absolutely crucial that we enhance skills and apprenticeships in the construction and housing sector? Does she also agree that now is not the time for the Construction Industry Training Board to be proposing to close its site at Bircham in West Norfolk, putting at risk 600...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Dec 2017)

Henry Bellingham: Is the Secretary of State aware that there remains a serious illegal drugs problem in Norwich and Wayland prisons? Many Ministers talk about creating drugs-free prisons, but when is that going to become a reality in Norfolk? I would like the Secretary of State to answer, please.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Safety (30 Nov 2017)

Henry Bellingham: Is the Minister of State aware that the King’s Lynn guide dogs forum is campaigning hard to highlight the impact of selfish pavement parking on blind and visually impaired people? It also recently took me on a blindfolded walk through the centre of King’s Lynn, which brought home to me the scale of this problem, and I highly recommend that the Minister of State and Secretary of...

Exiting the Eu: Costs (29 Nov 2017)

Henry Bellingham: The Chief Secretary will be very aware that her constituents and mine voted overwhelmingly to leave. Does she agree that it feels on the ground as though most people now want to get on with Brexit, but also that they expect the UK to be fair, generous and magnanimous, so long as the financial settlement is contingent on a free trade deal?

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Henry Bellingham: I call Robert Courts to wind up; I would be grateful if he could try to finish by 4.30 pm so that the Question can be put.

Zimbabwe (15 Nov 2017)

Henry Bellingham: Does the Foreign Secretary agree that this could be the beginning of the end of one of the most flawed regimes the world has ever seen? Does he also agree that the key priority, as my hon. Friend the Member for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge) has just pointed out, is having a pathway to free and fair elections? Also, what is going to be done to try to recover the many billions...

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: In my constituency, King’s Lynn also has a historic heart. CAMRA has been really proactive in driving forward all the issues, not least the issue around business rates and the impact on older buildings, which are much more expensive to maintain.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: How many slaughterhouses do not currently have CCTV installed?

Raqqa and Daesh (24 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: Is the Minister aware that a young medical student from my constituency, who was radicalised at Khartoum University, went to Raqqa, via Turkey, to work in an ISIS hospital? She and dozens of other such medical students are obviously authors of their own peril, but does the Minister agree that every effort should be made to get them out safely?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Somalia (17 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: What steps his Department is taking to help to defeat terrorism in Somalia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Somalia (17 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: I join the Minister in offering heartfelt sympathy and prayers to President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and his people at this dreadful time. This was the most lethal bomb ever let off in Africa, yet it has received minimal coverage in the west. What more can we do to redouble not only security input, but our development efforts, so that we can give the Somali people hope for the future and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (16 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: What steps she is taking to reduce knife crime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (16 Oct 2017)

Henry Bellingham: I thank the Home Secretary for that reply. Does she agree that, one of the challenges here is that some of the most lethal knives are actually in people’s kitchens up and down the land, which makes them very difficult to regulate. On sentencing criminals, will she tell the House how many people have been convicted under the so-called Nick de Bois amendment of “two strikes and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Security Situation (13 Sep 2017)

Henry Bellingham: What recent assessment he has made of the security situation in Northern Ireland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Security Situation (13 Sep 2017)

Henry Bellingham: As part of the security review, will the Minister look at the case of Dennis Hutchings and other veterans, who have been hounded and charged in respect of alleged shootings nearly 50 years ago? There is no new evidence, so surely the time has come to restore humanity and natural justice, and bring in some form of time limitation.
