Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Rohingya Refugees (Bangladesh) (18 Oct 2017)

Gregory Campbell: What pressure can be applied to the authorities in the region and particularly to the office of Aung San Suu Kyi? Tributes have been paid to her in the past for her work to bring people together to try to bring an end to the onslaught and murder that continue in the region.

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

Gregory Campbell: The hon. Gentleman spoke a few moments ago about the importance of competitiveness throughout Europe. Does he agree that the argument that he is making runs counter to the attempts to make Northern Ireland’s private sector business more competitive, when we have a difficult relationship with the Irish Republic and its very low corporation tax, which he has alluded to?

Iran: Human Rights — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the right hon. Lady on securing the debate. She outlines in graphic detail the appalling litany of offences in Iran. Does she agree that it is time that not just our Government but the international community indicate to Iran that although it occasionally opens up towards being more transparent towards the west and appears to pursue moderation, it needs to make its mind up? The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Electoral Registration (11 Oct 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Is the Minister aware of the massive change in Northern Ireland constituencies in terms of proxy votes between the 2015 general election and this year’s election, when thousands of people applied for and received proxy votes, which, in some constituencies, resulted in a virtual usurping of the election result? What plans has the Minister to address that?

Foreign Direct Investment 2016-17 — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Does my hon. Friend agree that as we reach the era of the post-Brexit vote, where there will hopefully be less uncertainty, some of the regions of the UK—particularly Northern Ireland—will need to be able to avail themselves of the advantages that access into the EU as well as access beyond the EU provide? That is particularly so with the land border with the Irish Republic.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles (12 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: What discussions is the Secretary of State having with manufacturers on prolonging battery life as rapidly as possible, and on rolling out electricity charging points to ensure the existing points are working and not broken down, and that they become more readily available throughout the UK?

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I am delighted that so many Members were able to take part in the debate. I thank the Minister for his response. I trust, as he indicated, that the BBC, at hierarchy level, will respond definitively to not only my questions, letters and emails but those of all other public representatives. We want to see a BBC of which we can be rightly proud—one that is independent, fearless and...

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I beg to move, That this House has considered the transparency of the BBC. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship once again, Mr Bone. I am grateful for this opportunity to highlight my concerns about the lack of transparency in the BBC’s use of public money in Northern Ireland and, I am sure, more widely. I secured a debate on the subject on a previous occasion but had to...

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention, and I agree with her: the campaign over the past years to get further transparency is a work in progress, and we are much more advanced than we were 10 or 12 years ago. However, as I am outlining, there is much more work to do. The fourth area that I want to cover is BBC accuracy and honesty. The BBC prides itself on posing questions, and all of...

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I have no objection whatsoever to any media organisation concentrating on events, particularly events of such import, but when it scandalously misrepresents things, as those comments and the comments of others did, and then the comments are changed after I and others confront the presenter about his misrepresentation, it proves that the BBC knows that it overstepped the mark in its initial...

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. She is right, and we have noticed that the BBC—particularly in the last three or four years, for some reason—has become much more sensationalist. I ask a straightforward question, which most people—even the BBC—should be able to answer: what is the point of having a declaration of interests, if no one knows what is in it?...

Exiting the European Union: VAT Rates (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Does the Minister look forward, like me, to the days when these protracted discussions are concluded and the Chancellor will have the liberty, which we did not have as members of the EU, to set tax rates across the whole range?

Points of Order (18 Jul 2017)

Gregory Campbell: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The BBC is our public sector broadcaster and is paid for by all of us through the licence fee. It will announce tomorrow the details of presenters’ salaries over the threshold of £150,000. The campaign to get that transparency has gone on for around 10 years, and some of us have been heavily involved in it. The BBC initially avoided the matter and...

Anglo-Polish Relations — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate. Does he agree—it appears he is on the same line—that the security of Europe in the past, the present and hopefully the future, even in the central European belt, has been thanks to NATO, and that we should build and strengthen our relationship with all the NATO nations and not allow the misreading of history that says the...

Saudi Arabia: Anticipated Executions (17 Jul 2017)

Gregory Campbell: In the Minister’s communications with the Saudi authorities about this particular group of people, will he establish whether reports are correct that others, again including juveniles, are facing similar charges?

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. On the overall issue of rebalancing the public finances, does he agree that there is an example of effective and pragmatic expenditure in the recent announcement by the Prime Minister and the leader of my party? Is not it a good idea to have investment in an area of the United Kingdom such as Northern Ireland, where there has...

Persecution of Christians: Role of UK Embassies — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Before he goes on to itemise some aspects of persecution, does he agree that in addition to the various departmental responsibilities and the good work that has been done there, there are various non-governmental agencies such as Open Doors and other groups that have highlighted the topic he is discussing today? They are to be highly...
