EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Presuming that the Government do finally make progress at some stage and we leave the single market, will the Secretary of State outline to the House what sort of agreement he expects to reach on UK access to the European market for services?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I welcome the amendment tabled by the right hon. and learned Gentleman that would remove the Alice “Through the Looking-Glass” absurdity of there being different exit days for different purposes. I was an early signatory to all his amendments because they are eminently sensible. The right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) described entertainingly the reasons for...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I wanted to make this intervention on my right hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Frank Field), but he would not take it. I commend the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield), and I seek his opinion on new clause 49. The new clause is linked to other new clauses, but if it is agreed there is no guarantee that the other new clauses will be agreed....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: It was a point of order.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: On a point of order, Mr Hoyle. In this new clause we are debating an exit date of 30 March 2019, yet grouped with it there are Government amendments to be voted on at a later date that put the exit date at 11 pm on 29 March 2019. There is a difference of an hour, and as far as I am aware the clocks only go forward on Sunday 31 March. Could you give some guidance to the movers of these...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Impact Assessments (1 Nov 2017)

Paul Farrelly: I recently asked the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport what sector assessments her Department was involved in, and she answered, “None.” However, I count at least 10 areas in which her Department is involved—or perhaps it is not involved. Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that that prompts questions about how the Government are co-ordinating...

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Paul Farrelly: In my area of Newcastle-under-Lyme, our local housing association, Aspire, is not building affordable or supported housing at all. It is developing in higher property price areas in Cheshire to recycle the money to support its existing estates because of the squeeze on its finances and income from Government policies. Is there not something fundamentally wrong when a local housing association...

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Paul Farrelly: Welcome as the Government’s U-turn is, does my hon. Friend agree that their change of mind barely scratches the surface of the overall crisis in the provision of supported and affordable housing?

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...
