Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Procurement: SMEs (21 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: When we start the major work on this building, which will be a massive multibillion-pound infrastructure project, will the Government ensure that small businesses all around the country get contracts, not just the big corporations?

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Well over 1 million people in this country are living with the consequences of acquired brain injury. The great news is that 600 extra lives are being saved every single year thanks to the Government’s new trauma centres. That is brilliant, but the problem is that although many people’s lives are being saved, they are not getting the rehabilitation support that can help them to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Institute for Free Trade: Launch Cost (20 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: What the cost to the public purse was of the launch of the Institute for Free Trade held on his Department’s premises.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Institute for Free Trade: Launch Cost (20 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Oh, come off it! Come off it! The right hon. Gentleman must think that we were all born yesterday. The truth is that this was a private party, which was going on on Government premises, sanctioned by the Foreign Secretary. He has been trying to dress up a tinpot bunch of ideological crackpots as an institute, quite against the law, and he has broken the ministerial code. He has been caught...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: I am all for robust debate and even occasionally a witty heckle or two, but one of the worst forms of bullying in a playground is when a bunch of kids gang up on another child. That is sort of what we do every Wednesday afternoon in Prime Minister’s questions, is it not? When somebody we do not like is called, there are groans from Members on the other side of the Chamber, as if to...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Can we have a debate in Government time on acquired brain injury? It is a delight that, thanks to the introduction of major trauma centres across the country, 500 more people are kept alive every year, but unfortunately more than a quarter of those major trauma centres have no rehabilitation consultant, so people are not able to get the important support they need to get back on their feet...

Same-Sex Marriage in Bermuda (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs why he has allowed Her Majesty’s Governor of Bermuda to assent to a Bill that will abolish same-sex marriage in Bermuda.

Same-Sex Marriage in Bermuda (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: However the Government try to dress this up, it is a backward step for human rights in Bermuda and in the overseas territories. Same-sex Bermudian couples who have been married under the ruling of the Bermudian Supreme Court have now been rendered an anomaly. Gay and lesbian Bermudians have been told that they are not quite equal to everyone else and that they do not deserve—this is the...

Same-Sex Marriage in Bermuda (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Will you write to me?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage: Rural Areas (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: May I urge the Minister to be much more sceptical about the figures given out by mobile phone companies and operators? In all honesty, looking at their maps on the ground, they have nowhere near the figures of which they boast.

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: It is a delight to be able to celebrate the 100 years today, but would it not be a terrible mistake if we showed any sense of complacency? After all, so often in the history of these matters, we took one step forward and two steps back. In 1739, women could vote for sextons and local government officials. In 1843, Grace Brown—she was a butcher in Lichfield, by the way—and 30 women...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Not this ceiling!

Immigration White Paper (5 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: The Minister seemed to suggest that there is no need to deal with this matter before the transition period because we will have the whole transition period—some two years—in which to sort out new arrangements. Does that mean that we will be retaining freedom of movement during the transition period, in which case why do we not stay in the single market?

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Queen Victoria didn’t like it.

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Now that the House has made the in-principle decision on what we are going to do about restoration and renewal, may I urge the Leader of the House to get together her ministerial colleagues in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Department for Work and Pensions to put together a parliamentary skills strategy? We are going to need thousands of people working on...

Exiting the European Union: European Court of Justice (1 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: Whether he plans for the UK to be subject to rulings of the European Court of Justice during the transition period.

Exiting the European Union: European Court of Justice (1 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: So the European Court will be deciding on issues in this country, and if British businesses want to continue doing trade with the rest of Europe, they will have to abide by all the rules of the single market, and British citizens will have fewer rights in the rest of Europe than they have now. In essence, the Government are turning us from being a proud partner with European colleagues into a...

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Chris Bryant: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
