Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (13 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Not like the customs union.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: The most important point is that we should not be complacent about no deal, first of all for security reasons, which was precisely the point the Prime Minister made in her letter to Donald Tusk notifying the European Commission that we were leaving the European Union. She said in terms: “In security terms, a failure to reach agreement would mean our cooperation in the fight against...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: I know that the Solicitor General has spoken in good faith, but would it not be best for those discussions to take place in a forthright way, for us to vote with their lordships for their lordships’ amendment, and for the Government to return to the matter in the House of Lords after the discussions?

G7 (11 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Does the Prime Minister worry that there is a growing trend towards protectionism in the world, as we saw this weekend? In 2010, there were just 300 non-tariff protectionist measures in G20 countries but, in 2015, there were 1,200. How are we really going to make sure that we, as a country that relies on free and fair trade, can prosper if that protectionism grows?

Bill Presented: Privilege (7 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: I congratulate the hon. Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian Collins) on bringing forward this motion; he was absolutely right to do so. There are whole series of ironies here. The man who derided unelected bureaucrats in Brussels now, as an unelected bureaucrat, refuses public scrutiny by elected MPs. The man who coined the phrase “Take back control” now defies Parliament...

Business of the House (7 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: I am enormously grateful to the Leader of the House that we are having our debate on acquired brain injury, not least because the concussion suffered by the Liverpool goalkeeper in the recent Champions league match shows absolutely that football has not yet got this right: it should not be the club doctor who makes the decision about whether somebody continues to play; it should be an...

Supreme Court Ruling: Abortion in Northern Ireland (7 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: A British Government in Westminster should not abrogate to themselves powers willy-nilly, but why are the Government adamantine about not intervening when human rights issues affect British citizens? It was the same in Bermuda: the Government refused to say anything about same-sex marriage being banned, but the Supreme Court in Bermuda decided yesterday that the British Government were wrong...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (7 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: What is the Secretary of State going to do to stop the ludicrous and unpleasant practice of farmers illegally putting up great big hoardings in their fields, on the side of motorways? Surely one of the things that makes the British landscape different from elsewhere in Europe is that we have legislation to prevent that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Bell Ringing (7 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: But there are bats in that belfry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Gay Conversion Therapy (7 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Her reward is in heaven.

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill: Consequential amendments (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Why is the hon. Gentleman so keen on disqualifying a Member of the House of Commons from being the Data Guardian?

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill: Extent (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Well no, it is not really. In fact, it is a little bit worse than that. We return to clause 2(5), which says: “‘The health service’ means the health service continued under section 1(1) of the National Health Service Act 2006”, but that Act states: “The Secretary of State must continue the promotion in England of a comprehensive health service” and so on. I...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill: Commencement (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Christchurch and Rhondda speak as one, in a uniting of the Christophers, something that will not, I think, happen very often. It is a serious point; I understand that such clauses are a frequently used means of tidying up the process of a Bill coming into force. However, it adds cost, because the Government must go through an additional process; and frankly there is no reason why we should...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill: Interpretation (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Will the Minister clarify what she understands from clause 2(5)? It states: “‘The health service’ means the health service continued under section 1(1) of the National Health Service Act 2006.” That obviously includes ambulance services, but does it include those provided by St John Ambulance?

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill: National Data Guardian for Health and Social Care (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Thank you, Dame Cheryl. I want to raise two small points. The first is slightly to tease the hon. Member for Wellingborough: I cannot imagine another Bill making its way through the House of Commons and the House of Lords about which he would be so casual when it came to the amount it might eventually cost. I normally think of him as the most robust challenger of any public expenditure, but...

Proposed Media Mergers (5 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: The thing is, I can see exactly what is going to happen. The Secretary of State is going to accept any assurances that come in over the next few weeks and it will all be signed off. Then, in a few years’ time, Sky will be starved of money by whoever buys it and the broadcaster will end up coming to the next Secretary of State, or maybe even the same Secretary of State—I know he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Education and Employment (5 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: May I urge the Secretary of State to look at the correlation and causation between traumatic brain injury and reoffending? The most recent survey that has been done in the prison in Leeds showed that nearly 50% of prisoners had a traumatic brain injury, and that 30% of them had more than five. Does it not make sense to screen every single prisoner when they arrive in prison and ensure that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Chris Bryant: Will the Secretary of State also look at the issue of acquired brain injury in the youth justice system? One of the most interesting pieces of work being done at the moment shows that we can divert some of the most difficult, troubled children if we bring together psychologists, psychiatrists and prison and probation officers—all the different teams—to transform individual lives.
