Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: EU Withdrawal Negotiations (14 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: As the Secretary of State will be aware, international broadcasters based in London are very concerned about Brexit and their future. They are already looking at relocating to continental Europe, which will affect jobs and investment. What steps has the Secretary of State taken to reassure those companies that they will not face a great switch-off on exit day?

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Over the summer I received a heartbreaking email from a young lady who was a student at Keele University in Newcastle-under-Lyme: “Starting in September both my brother and I will be hoping to go off to university…My parents are having great difficulty trying to work out how they are going to support both of us and have suggested that I drop out of university as they can only...

Sky/Fox Merger (12 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I, too, welcome the Secretary of State’s statement. Five years on, it seems as if little has changed. The newspapers have been cast off, but Rebekah Brooks is back having been reappointed by the Murdochs, and Fox wants to take over Sky. There are a lot of loose ends to be tied up on corporate behaviour and governance, including evidence given to the Select Committee. One is the second...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I congratulate the shadow Secretary of State, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), on the common-sense position that Labour has adopted on EU withdrawal and on this democratic travesty of a Bill. We certainly look forward to seeing him in my constituency, where his appearance next month is eagerly awaited. Following the referendum, it is...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: The Bill asks us to transfer to the Executive what the hon. Gentleman considers a flaw without this Parliament having much of a say in what may happen. There are good reasons to oppose the Bill on the basis of clause 9 and the lack of a meaningful vote in Parliament—the Bill would allow the Government to get around that. To continue the school metaphor, the Bill is not only...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: As a former editor, may I suggest that the Brexit Secretary sits down over the recess in a dark or light room with my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) and the right hon. and learned Members for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) and for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) to produce something that will go through the House more quickly and with more unity than this...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Democratic Engagement (5 Jul 2017)

Paul Farrelly: In terms of democratic engagement, we had unprecedented problems in Newcastle-under-Lyme during the general election with late and missing postal votes, and with people being turned away from polling stations over registration issues. I have written to the First Secretary of State and Minister for the Cabinet Office about that, an investigation is under way, and I will apply for an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Leaving the EU: Creative Industries (29 Jun 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Newspapers and the media are very much part of our creative industries, so as we leave the EU, could the Minister explain what the Department’s policy is on the future of section 40 and Leveson 2, both of which are very relevant to the industry as it, too, prepares for Brexit?

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Paul Farrelly: The Prime Minister pledged time and again not to call an early election. In her Easter message, she talked greatly of her Christian values, so will she explain why she has such a loose and complicated relationship with telling the truth?

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I am very happy to withdraw and reformulate what I said. Why does the Prime Minister have such a complicated and loose relationship with giving the country a clear indication of her intentions?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Power to notify withdrawal from the EU (13 Mar 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Does the hon. Lady agree that this is not only an issue of principle, in regard to parliamentary sovereignty and having a meaningful say, but an issue of good practice? We should not swallow the argument of an incentive to offer the worst possible deal. Lords amendment 2 would instil discipline and accountability in the Government as well as among our negotiating partners, because at any...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Armed Forces Compensation Scheme and War Pensions: Appeals (2 Mar 2017)

Paul Farrelly: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many First-tier Tribunals in respect of war pensions and armed forces compensation took place in each quarter in each of the last five years; and in how many of those cases the tribunals found in favour of the complainants.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the Prime Minister’s approach so far, in pandering not to those who want immigration reduced to the tens of thousands but to the nones-of-thousands lobby, risks our approaching the scenario he just outlined? That approach is nonsensical, because we need immigration, whether the people are crop-pickers or gene splicers. There are deals to be done and...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Paul Farrelly: The hon. Gentleman—my next-door neighbour from Stone—is clearly enjoying his days in the sun. Like the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke), I did not vote for the referendum legislation. Will the hon. Gentleman tell us what regard he has had, over his 40 years of campaigning, for the two thirds of people who, at the time when he started his campaign, voted...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Is the right hon. Gentleman not assuming that, as we walk into the room, all the people we are negotiating with are our adversaries? Is that perhaps not the wrong standpoint to take? Is it not the case that a meaningful vote on the substance of any deal might equally focus the Government’s mind on what they can sell to this House to unite it, as well as the people we represent, in a...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I rather agree with the right hon. Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Exeter (Mr Bradshaw). Given the Government’s position, which has just been outlined, does my hon. and learned Friend agree that the only substantive reason now for the Government not to agree to our new clause 1 is to deny the other House a vote on a resolution, and that the...
