Prime Minister: Points of Order (27 Jun 2018)

Kevin Brennan: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Perhaps surprisingly, the Prime Minister did not choose to tell the House during Prime Minister’s Question Time about the resignation this morning of the leader of the Welsh Conservative party over remarks he made about Brexit and business. This was despite their being indistinguishable from the remarks made by the Foreign Secretary, apart from the...

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Voter ID Pilots (27 Jun 2018)

Business of the House (17 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: Since our exchange last week, Cottrell Park golf course has written to the Leader of the House and to me to say that it is happy for women to play golf competitively on Saturday mornings. Unfortunately, my constituent, Lowri Roberts, remains suspended from the course for having spoken out on this matter. Does the Leader of the House agree that we should have a debate on the issue? If we want...

Women and Equalities: Freelance Workers: Shared Parental Leave (17 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: If she will discuss with Cabinet colleagues the potential benefits for women of bringing forward legislative proposals to introduce shared parental leave for freelance workers.

Women and Equalities: Freelance Workers: Shared Parental Leave (17 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: I want the Minister not just to rule it out; I want him to become a champion inside the Government along with his Women and Equalities colleagues. Shared parental leave for freelance workers would be one of the best ways to help women in the workforce to continue pursuing their careers. I ask the Minister to go away and think about that and to become a champion, rather than just someone who...

Backbench Business: Channel 4 Relocation — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: I congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow South (Stewart Malcolm McDonald) on securing this interesting debate. The message that we should all take away is that we have great cities and towns around the United Kingdom that are all ready to bid for the wonderful opportunity of the relocation of Channel 4’s headquarters and the creative hubs. The hon. Gentleman reminded us of the...

Backbench Business: Channel 4 Relocation — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: I am not one to blow my own trumpet, so I will not comment further on that, and I do not want to endanger my relationship with my hon. Friends by saying anything further about Cardiff’s bid. May I take this opportunity to wish my hon. Friend the Member for Batley and Spen (Tracy Brabin) a happy birthday? She was seen celebrating last night, and she is looking remarkably fresh today. I...

Backbench Business: Channel 4 Relocation — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: Well, not all of them, some of them—a small smidgen of the production companies based in the city of Glasgow. Again, she made a powerful case on Glasgow’s behalf. I will say a word or two about Channel 4. We welcome the fact that Channel 4’s status in the public sector has been confirmed and that the Government have decided that they will not pursue its privatisation, which...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: This is an important debate and I congratulate all the hon. Members who have contributed to it so far. Banks occupy a very special and important position in our economy and society. Without them, the economy could not function efficiently. However, they also operate in such a way that they borrow short and lend long, and they always have done. As a result, banks hold a degree of...

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: I absolutely accept that; it is completely the case. I want to mention briefly some of my constituents who have been affected by what has been described today and by other practices that should be incorporated in the public inquiry that other hon. Members have called for. By the way, RBS has today been fined $4.9 billion dollars by the American authorities for its activities when it was...

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: May we debate discrimination against women in golf clubs? My constituent Lowri Roberts wanted to play golf on a Saturday, but she was banned from doing so because she was a woman. After she complained in the media, she was suspended from Cottrell Park golf course in the Vale of Glamorgan. Is that not an absolute disgrace in this day and age?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (10 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: I am sure the whole House will want to congratulate Cardiff City on their rightful return to the premier league. When the Secretary of State was scouring the newspapers this morning searching for favourable headlines about himself, did he see the story in The Times relating to the fixed odds betting terminals decision and the need to reduce the maximum stake to £2? The intervention by...

Iran Nuclear Deal (9 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: Will this unilateral decision in effect mean that the United States—a country that we are setting great store by in terms of trade—will be introducing sanctions, or the threat of sanctions, against UK companies that continue to trade with Iran?

Exiting the European Union: Internal UK Trade (3 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: Does not the integrity of the UK depend on the Good Friday agreement and the Good Friday agreement on the consent of the people on both sides of the border, both of whom voted to remain in the European Union? That consent, therefore, is dependent on an open border, and that open border can be maintained only by our continuing membership of the customs union. Is not that the irresistible logic...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Competition and Consumer Protection (1 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: One of the ways in which consumers are very often ripped off is through the practice of drip pricing in online purchases—particularly through the practice of outlaw companies such as Viagogo, for example, which uses it. What work is the right hon. Gentleman doing in relation to that and with his colleagues from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (1 May 2018)

Kevin Brennan: May I congratulate the Under-Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the hon. Member for Burton (Andrew Griffiths), on the recent birth of his daughter? In doing so, I remind the House that, as an office holder, he was unfortunately unable to take up shared parental leave—at least, that is certainly what he told the media. Does he have any empathy with people...

Protection of Welsh Speakers from Defamation — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Kevin Brennan: The hon. Lady is being hugely generous in giving way. Does she agree that one way we could address this issue is by extending the use of the Welsh language in this place? It is currently restricted to the Welsh Grand Committee, but I wrote to the Leader of the House today to ask her to meet me to discuss permitting the use of Welsh in our debates in this Chamber and in the main Chamber. Does...
