Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Leaving the EU: Contingency Plans for No Deal (12 Sep 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Does the Minister agree that the difficulties of contingency planning should not be added to by this obsession with a mythical hard border, which no one wants, cannot be implemented and could be circumvented with ease by everybody in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic?

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Gregory Campbell: To go back to what my hon. Friend said about Northern Ireland compared with the rest of the UK, with the much shorter time between the demise of the deceased and the burial, is that not all the more reason for clarity at a very early stage, particularly given that in most cases some members of the extended family will be in other parts of the country, or possibly overseas? It is a very short...

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Gregory Campbell: On the issue of technical assistance that we have offered Bahrainis over the past few years, does my hon. Friend agree that it is important that not only our own taxpayers but the international community see that some benefit is derived, that progress is being made, that there is no regression, and that people in Bahrain can see and feel a noticeable difference from that technical assistance?

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Government (6 Sep 2018)

Gregory Campbell: My party welcomes the Secretary of State’s announcement, particularly on reducing MLAs’ pay. The DUP is the party of no preconditions: we want to get into government tomorrow. Unfortunately, others who walked out of the Executive have set preconditions. Hopefully, she will get on with that job. May I draw her attention to the part of her statement where she said that MLAs...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: UK Tourism (6 Sep 2018)

Gregory Campbell: The Minister will be aware, I hope, that the R&A will come back to Royal Portrush next year for the first time in 70 years for the Open golf tournament. Would he join me in ensuring that his colleagues in the Cabinet take the decision on VAT on hospitality and air passenger duty to try to ensure that tourism in Northern Ireland receives a much-needed boost in advance of that tremendous...

Organised Crime: Young People’s Safety — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Does my hon. Friend agree that part of the problem, in addition to what we have heard very powerfully throughout the debate, is that in some communities these activities are glamorised and young people’s eyes are not opened to the reality of what happens to them after they get involved? Do we not need to tackle that in a co-ordinated way?

Northern Ireland: Recent Violence (18 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: I join the Secretary of State and the shadow Secretary of State in defending and exhorting the security services and community representatives in the light of the ongoing violence. The most sustained campaign of violence was in the Fountain/Bogside area of Londonderry. She is right: I invited my party leader there to tour the area—hopefully, the shadow Secretary of State will be able to...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Will the hon. Lady join me in paying tribute to the many faith-based groups that help homeless refugees? They work not only among the refugees, but with other groups such as ex-service personnel, many of whom suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, to try to get them to restart and build a new life.

Non-EEA Visas: Inshore Fishing — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. On skills, does he agree that the topic he has wisely chosen for debate is a perfect example of what we hear discussed quite often in the immigration debate—that we should decide what type, what quantity and what skills we need to try to help our industries here in the United Kingdom?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Sainsbury’s-Asda Merger (17 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: A lot of jobs are sustained by local suppliers to both supermarkets. What opportunities will the Minister take to ensure that that continues, and in fact increases, with the newly formed company?

Afghanistan (11 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: May I associate myself and my colleagues with the Secretary of State’s tribute to those who made the supreme sacrifice, including many from Northern Ireland—I think of several from my constituency? Given the deployment that is about to take place, what steps will he take to ensure that other nation states will share skills and training, as we obviously have, so that there is...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: The hon. Gentleman talks about inevitable trade-offs across the world. Up to now, we have talked about the UK’s fluidity in terms of trading with the EU and beyond, but does he agree that we must not lose sight of the massive political and trading changes that might take place in remaining EU countries such as Hungary, Poland, Germany and Austria after we have left?

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Will the hon. Gentleman give way? [Laughter.]

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Presumably on terms that are mutually advantageous to both sides.

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Smaller airports suffer disproportionately from APD, such as airports in Scotland and my own airport in Londonderry, where we are trying to get route development money. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that double disadvantage—the difficulty of attracting new routes and APD—needs to be countered and that action should be taken to help?

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: My hon. Friend is outlining the numbers for Dublin airport—it will probably breach the 30 million mark this year—but is he aware that Dublin is constructing an additional runway to take advantage of the nil rate of APD? It is not only getting 30 million passengers; the number will go way up beyond that. Northern Ireland’s hospitality and tourism industry needs a competitive...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Does he agree that the major competitor to all of Northern Ireland’s airports—International, City and Londonderry—is the one airport? Dublin Airport has now attracted tens of millions of passengers. It is one of the fastest growing airports in western Europe and it does not lead to APD in the Irish Republic. We need a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Offenders: Help to Find Employment (10 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: Reducing reoffending rates is crucial. What information are the Minister and the Government providing in wider society to point out the benefits of a reduction in reoffending rates not just for prisoners, but for the wider society?

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: The Minister compares the frustrations expressed by Democratic Unionist Members with the frustrations of the Northern Ireland Office, but does he understand the difference? We have done everything to try to accelerate the move towards devolved government and have had no reciprocity from Sinn Féin. The Minister can assuage his frustration and take action to deliver for the people of...

Business of the House: Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill (9 Jul 2018)

Gregory Campbell: As the police try to move into a much more community-orientated role in Northern Ireland, we all support that, but as we speak tonight, police officers in Northern Ireland are having to be deployed to the small enclave of the Fountain estate in Londonderry, where they are under constant attack from petrol bombs, acid bombs and stones. That is not the type of policing we ought to have, but it...
