European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval of the outcome of negotiations with the EU (20 Jun 2018)

Paul Farrelly: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I am reading here in the media for the first time a ministerial statement from the Secretary of State purporting to explain how “neutral terms” would operate in practice, and I assume that you have seen the statement, Mr Speaker. It says: “Under the Standing Orders of the House of Commons it will be for the Speaker to determine whether a motion when it...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Paul Farrelly: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Paul Farrelly: MailOnline —which, through massive investment, has possibly become the English-speaking world’s most successful website—has opted out of IPSO. What does that say about the Mail group’s commitment to responsibility?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Paul Farrelly: The Government also asked the public what they thought. When they announced the results of the consultation, it quickly became clear that the Secretary of State had set aside two petitions signed by more than 200,000 people who were in favour of Leveson 2, but counted 62,000 pro forma newspaper coupons that were against it, just because they had been returned in envelopes. Does the right hon....

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Paul Farrelly: The Select Committee, of which the right hon. Gentleman was a wonderful Chair, recently recommended unanimously, cross-party, the partial commencement of section 40 to give those publications protections—to protect investigative journalism—if they joined the approved regulator. That was one of the options in the consultation. What is wrong with that course?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Paul Farrelly: May I add another voice? There is no journalist more respected on these shores than Sir Harold Evans, the former editor of The Sunday Times. He wrote to everybody today in support of the previous Government’s promises: “Whatever your party, I and many of my associates, look to you to honour that commitment. To renege would be an affront to every citizen who suffered intrusion, but...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Paul Farrelly: I thank the Secretary of State for giving way, not least in view of what I am going to say. Is the truth not that he has broken promises to the victims, ignored the opinions of Sir Brian Leveson and ridden roughshod over the cross-party, unanimous opinion of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee? Much has happened since Leveson 1, and one thing that Leveson 2 could establish is who...

Hate Crime: Treatment of House of Commons Staff (12 Mar 2018)

Paul Farrelly: I can assure you, Mr Speaker, that I have great respect for all staff I work with. I was the guinea pig in 2012 after a difficult phone-hacking report, for the original Respect policy. I was flayed by selective leaking six years ago, and it has happened again now. I ask the Leader of the House and hon. Members, before they jump to judgment after what was a very one-sided, selective BBC...

Uk Relations: Saudi Arabia: Points of Order (7 Mar 2018)

Paul Farrelly: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I ask your advice on how the House can put on the record its concern that the Conservative manifesto in 2017, with its promise to scrap Leveson 2 and section 40, pre-empted the results of a consultation that the Department for Culture, Media and Sport was carrying out. How can we be sure, particularly given the comments of Sir Brian Leveson, that that decision...

Post-18 Education (20 Feb 2018)

Paul Farrelly: Student living costs are the most pressing issue at Keele University in my constituency and certainly elsewhere in the country, where it is much more expensive to rent and simply get by. Rather than waiting an age for the conclusions of this review, should the Government not simply address this issue now, as well as the sliding scale of access to maintenance loans and the reintroduction of...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Paul Farrelly: There are also questions about NHS leadership. As the Minister is aware, Staffordshire is under great pressure. The Secretary of State received reports into the closure, with lack of consultation, of community hospitals in our area on 18 October, which slated two local CCGs. Yet a week later the NHS appointed the chief operating officer of those two CCGs to oversee four more in...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Paul Farrelly: I want to talk about the situation at my local hospital, the Royal Stoke University Hospital. Winter crises there are hardly new, but they have escalated year on year, and our hospital features luridly in the national press each winter. It is often the most affected, and it is no coincidence that its funding deficit is England’s worst. This winter, however, is the first time that Royal...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I have been trawling back through my more recent memory banks. If I am not mistaken, before the Minister was taken to task and dismissed the new clause as a constitutional novelty, which is no argument, he was rather sympathetic to its content, so I was assuming that he might agree with it because it is, after all, in agreement with what the Prime Minister said.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Will my hon. Friend give way?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I am certainly not a lawyer. Would my hon. Friend care to explain to the House why she felt unable to support amendment 7 last week? Was it perhaps because, as well as not trusting the EU, she does not trust this House?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: It is indeed on this point. Some of the Minister’s right hon. and hon.—and courageous—Friends from last week have, in good faith, signed amendment 400 this evening. Given that he is refusing to guarantee that the Government will stick to the letter and the spirit of amendment 7, they might feel that they are being led up the garden path.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: During the Minister’s course through the amendments, has he perhaps noticed new clause 54, which was tabled by the right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) following the Prime Minister’s Florence speech? If he has noticed it, what does he think of it?
