Sudan — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: For the last, I think, 10 years, General Omar al-Bashir has avoided travel to countries where he might be arrested, having been indicted for war crimes by the ICC. Now is surely the time when he must be taken to The Hague to face those serious charges regarding crimes against humanity.

Sudan — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Cheryl. It is also a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stroud (Dr Drew), who, as the vice-chairman of the all-party parliamentary group, has been indefatigable in his support of Sudan and South Sudan. I declare my interests, particularly as the chair of the APPG. I agree with much of what the hon. Gentleman has said, because when...

Sudan — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I certainly agree. There can be no question of General Omar al-Bashir escaping those charges in the ICC. There needs to be an ICC investigation into the crimes that took place in early June. It is absolutely essential that that happens.

Sudan — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: Exactly. Of course, General Omar al-Bashir has committed crimes in the past in Darfur and elsewhere.

I would be grateful if the Minister can comment on that point, but it seems that UK has significant influence over that, particularly through our position in the UN. As far as the regional...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: The Union (19 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: One obvious way further to strengthen the Union is for key Government Departments, such as the Ministry of Defence and the Department for Work and Pensions, to move more jobs and activities to Scotland. What is the Secretary of State doing to pursue that agenda?

Gulf of Oman Oil Tanker Attacks (17 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I thank the right hon. and wise doctor for his measured response. Does he agree that the raison d’être of Iran is exporting revolution throughout the region and further afield?

Sudan (13 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I am very grateful to the Minister for her response. When Omar al-Bashir stood down and the Transitional Military Council took over—the Minister alluded to that—there was a huge amount of optimism. There were peaceful protests and there was space for opposition groups. Since last weekend, however, the situation has become horrendous. We have seen the Rapid Support Forces—the former...

Henry Bellingham: What recent assessment he has made of trends in the level of inward foreign direct investment.

International Trade: Inward Foreign Direct Investment (6 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I thank the Minister for that extremely positive and encouraging reply. Is he aware that much of King’s Lynn and west Norfolk’s economy is based on foreign direct investment from a number of firms from America and Europe and that we have some subsidiaries of truly world-class companies? What is his Department doing to liaise with those firms and learn the lessons about why they made that...

International Development: Cyclone Idai (6 Jun 2019)

Henry Bellingham: I declare my interests in southern Africa. Does the Minister agree that one lesson we need to take away from this appalling cyclone is the need to concentrate on longer-term flood and sea defences? Will she elaborate a bit on what her Department is doing in that respect?
