Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: The Prime Minister did not answer the second part of the question from the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone), who has just resumed his place, about the exit date of 29 March 2019. He asked specifically if she was still committed to it being in the withdrawal Bill. Is she telling us today that under no circumstances will she countenance withdrawing the amendment the Government have...

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Could the Leader of the House do something, or could we have a debate, about the Government publishing routine information? I have been trying for 15 months to get the Library’s taskforce dataset published and have had various answers that it will be published in due course or in the near future, whatever that means. If the Government can publish papers that do not exist, surely they...

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Smells!

City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I congratulate the hon. Member for Brecon and Radnorshire (Chris Davies) on securing the debate and on his excellent speech in support of Swansea for the city of culture. He told us that his constituency stretches down very close to the boundary of Swansea in the town of Ystradgynlais, and reminded us of the city’s history,...

City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: I hope she is not suggesting that original sin was invented there, but her description certainly conveyed the beauty of the city and its environs very well. My hon. Friend the Member for Gower (Tonia Antoniazzi) lives in a beautiful constituency at the edge of Swansea. I know it is beautiful because my sister, Colleen, lives there. I recommend anyone who has never visited the Gower to do so,...

City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: My hon. Friend will not be surprised to know that I agree with that. We have already heard the famous quote by Dylan Thomas about Swansea as an “ugly, lovely town”. Well, he was right, it is lovely, and perhaps once it was ugly. Now, however, it is a beautiful city, not an “ugly, lovely town”, and today people can visit wonderful cultural institutions in Swansea, such...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Read the rest of it.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that Scottish Ministers and Welsh Ministers are also Ministers of the Crown?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: The hon. Gentleman was mildly critical of the Welsh First Minister for using rhetoric, but the rhetoric in that relationship came from Prime Minister David Cameron, who said that he wanted to follow a respect agenda but then failed even to have a meeting with the First Minister. May I also correct the hon. Gentleman on something? Ministers actually know each other very well at the moment and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Does the hon. Gentleman acknowledge that there is an inter-parliamentary council? The British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly, which obviously includes the Government of the Republic of Ireland, provides an opportunity for parliamentarians to get to know each other. Perhaps it would be useful if, as the Chair of the Select Committee on Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs, he were to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: There was a referendum. It was the will of the people.

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Kevin Brennan: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the way in which she is introducing the debate. As Chair of the Petitions Committee, she always introduces these debates with great force and eloquence. In addition to the points she has made, does she agree that public sector workers are also consumers? It is essential that they are appropriately rewarded, as consumers, for their work so that they too can...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way, because I know that time is short. Does he agree that those Cabinet Committee-style discussions should involve ensuring that the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office understand the ways in which people with autism come into contact with the criminal justice system and understand the behaviours—such as stimming, which is often...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Does the hon. Lady agree that mental health issues for adults with autism can arise out of the way in which they are treated when they encounter the criminal justice system? The behaviours that sometimes accompany autism can be misinterpreted by people in the criminal justice system. Does she agree that we need not only to get the health provision right but to ensure that the people working...

Online Hate Speech (30 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: May I offer the Government a way out of the diplomatic ditch that they are in? Her Majesty the Queen has been cutting back on her engagements due to her great and welcome age. She has a royal wedding to look forward to next year and the birth of a new great grandchild. Do not those facts alone justify the Government’s announcing the postponement of the state visit by the President of...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Given the amount of time that Divisions on Opposition day motions take, would it be possible to issue Conservative Members with white flags to wave, rather than our having to put up with the inconvenience of a Division?

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Kevin Brennan: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) on securing today’s debate. We have heard some wonderful contributions, starting with his own, followed by a speech from the hon. Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John Lamont). My hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Sutton and...
