Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Departmental Preparation (7 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: My colleagues and I are working hard to try to get the Northern Ireland Executive restored, but in the absence of an Executive will the Secretary of State ensure that he has discussions with the permanent secretary at the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development in Northern Ireland to ensure that our sector and its niche markets are protected beyond March 2019?

Unduly Lenient Sentences (6 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Will the right hon Gentleman give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I am glad that the right hon. and learned Gentleman has returned to the veto, because vetoes have been mentioned several times in the debate thus far. Does he agree that what has been thoroughly unhelpful in the past 10 days is the arrival of Donald Tusk in Dublin, in effect to hand the Irish Taoiseach a veto by saying, “We in Europe stand with you, and whatever you want, we will back...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: When indicating the substantial contribution and progress made in recent decades in Northern Ireland, I caution the hon. Gentleman and other Members against attributing that in total to the process that started in 1998. The ceasefires—among those who should not have started killing people in the first place—commenced in 1994, four years before the Belfast agreement. So a process...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Welsh Ministers — Power to make consequential and transitional provision (6 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: The hon. Lady and I have got on very well since entering the House together—16 years and I think four months ago, as the Speaker might say. Does she agree that my right hon. Friend the Member for Belfast North (Nigel Dodds) asked her a very specific question relating to what the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) said about convergence across the island of...

Youth Employment — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. Given the welcome stats that we received about two weeks ago showing the reduction in net immigration into the UK, does she agree that if employment stats continue to improve, as we all hope they will, we will need to see a nationwide retraining of our young people to try to fill what may well be a gap, if we do not do that emphatically...

City of Culture 2021: Swansea Bid — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate—obviously a timely one, given the week it is in. As I live in and represent part of the city of Londonderry, the first ever UK city of culture in 2013, would he accept my saying that the phoenix rising from the ashes is an appropriate euphemism? One of the things that Swansea, if successful, needs to do is to harness communities...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officers (5 Dec 2017)

Gregory Campbell: What assessment has the Secretary of State made of the impact of prison officers’ terms and conditions and pay scales on their morale now compared with five years ago?

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing the debate. She alludes to the issues facing young people. Does she agree that, in addition to the horrendous conditions she outlines, the news that emerged yesterday that organised gangs are taking advantage of women—particularly vulnerable young women, but also older women—is another complicating factor? That needs to be resolved in...

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this timely debate and on ensuring that it coincides with the anniversary. This type of discussion, debate and acknowledgement is significant, given the issues that he mentioned. For example, we must not only pay tribute to the many voluntary detachments of women in the first world war from all across the UK, including Scotland and Northern...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Air Passenger Duty: Regional Airports (28 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: In the light of the Chancellor’s very welcome announcement last week about a possible review of air passenger duty in Northern Ireland, will the Minister take account of the fact that all our airports—Belfast City, Belfast International and Londonderry—suffer a very serious disadvantage when competing with airports in the Irish Republic, which all have significantly lower...

Drug Addiction — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate. He talks about data. Does he agree that the information from the Library about the increase in male mortality from drug misuse, particularly in the past five years, is alarming and demonstrates the urgent need not only for this debate but for action to be taken after it?

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Electoral Fraud (22 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Is the Minister aware that at the general election in June, there was a 300% increase in proxy votes in the Foyle constituency, resulting in Sinn Féin winning the seat by 169 votes? Many people are specifically saying that that was a clear case of electoral fraud and the theft of a constituency in this House. What will the Minister do to ensure that that does not happen again?

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way. On the issue of life expectancy, does he agree that while we need to resolve the issue of the WASPI women now, this Government and future Governments need to think long term, rather than reacting to immediate pressures in the short term?

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Would the hon. Lady agree that, whatever route the Government decide to take, one of the things that we must protect—this was alluded to earlier in the debate—is the excellence of the research and development facilities that we have across the United Kingdom? That must be paramount in the considerations by the Government, as we go beyond March 2019.

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is vital that the Department, the Minister and the Treasury understand the cross-party consensus and the unanimity that exists, not just in this Parliament but in this country, about the adaptability required by our forces in times such as this?

UK Amphibious Capability — [James Gray in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Will the hon. Lady give way?

TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: I join other hon. Members in thanking the hon. Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) for introducing the debate. I declare a somewhat different interest, which is that I have been trying to hold the BBC to account for many years. I have had some limited success in recent years, but initially I struggled to get it to be more accountable and transparent. Several hon. Members have alluded...

TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

Gregory Campbell: Indeed, but why has that not been happening for years? Why did the BBC have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into revealing presenters’ salaries? When we discovered those salaries, there was outrage at the disparity between men and women, but was the BBC asked when it would lower the salaries of male presenters? No, it was asked when it would raise the salaries of female...
