Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: May I first refer Members to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests? I commend the Chancellor for his Budget, which continues the themes of economic reform and fiscal consolidation that we have seen in each of the Budgets and autumn statements in this Parliament. It is that twin-track approach that has led to a fall in the deficit, putting the nation on a path...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: That demonstrates the challenges we face to get the pace right. One thing we should be absolutely clear about is the importance of sticking to the course. There are three reasons why it is important to stick to the course of reducing the deficit and reducing debt. It is inherently unfair for future generations to bear the cost of debt we have built up.

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: Let the hon. Gentleman answer this question: is it really fair for our children and grandchildren to pay the cost of debts we have built up? Let him answer that question.

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: That is a remarkable argument. Is the hon. Gentleman saying that we should have cut further and faster? That is not the prescription of the shadow Chancellor or the Leader of the Opposition. They always said we were cutting too far, too fast. They cannot have it both ways. That is the problem and that is why the Labour party has no economic credibility: it has no coherent argument on the...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: I am surprised by what the hon. Gentleman says, because he is a member of the Treasury Committee and has looked at these things very carefully. He will have seen what happened in the eurozone in the first half of this Parliament. The headwinds from the eurozone—the OBR confirmed this—had a negative impact on the UK economy. We cannot ignore the impact of turmoil abroad on the strength of...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The problem for Labour Members is that when they are confronted with the facts, they hide. That is the problem they will all face in the course of the next 50 days. They have clearly not developed economic credibility, because their plans and message are confused. They have no idea how they would deal with the economy. All we know about Labour is that it...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Hoban: I am really not going to be lectured by a Member from the Scottish National party about economic realities. We heard in the Budget today that because the United Kingdom is together, we are able to support the North sea oil sector in a way it could not have been supported if the SNP had achieved independence, so I am not going to take any lessons on economic credibility from the SNP. In...

Energy and Climate Change: A and E and Ambulance Services (18 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: Last Friday, my hon. Friends the Members for Portsmouth North (Penny Mordaunt) and for East Hampshire (Damian Hinds) and I met leaders of the health and social care system in south-east Hampshire to discuss how it is dealing with the operational challenges it faces. May I commend to my right hon. Friend the model it is using—of working together to prevent unnecessary admissions, ensuring a...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Education of Children with Cerebral Palsy (9 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: It is a surprise and a pleasure to be asked to wind up the debate; I was not quite prepared for that when I came here this morning. The contributions by my hon. Friend the Minister and the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe) are welcome. Given the time we have had available, they extended beyond the normal 10 minutes, which was hugely helpful in exploring some of the issues...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Education of Children with Cerebral Palsy (9 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: I appreciate that I will have a second bite of the cherry in a minute, but I just want to press the Minister on this point about what the local offer includes. He rightly places emphasis on consulting parents, but if the parents do not know that there is a specialist centre in the next county, or the next city in the case of Birmingham, they will not know how to feed that back. What steps...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Education of Children with Cerebral Palsy (9 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool North and Cleveleys (Paul Maynard) for securing this debate and generously asking me to open it. My first event as a Member of Parliament was a fundraising evening for the Rainbow Centre, a charity set up by parents to enable their children with cerebral palsy to benefit from conductive education, a therapy pioneered at the Peto Institute in...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: M27 (9 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what progress has been made on making the stretch of motorway between junctions 4 and 11 of the M27 a smart motorway.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: Stamp duty has often been a barrier to families in my constituency owning a home of their own or moving house. The reforms that the Chancellor announced today will save £1,300 on the cost of an average house in Fareham. Does that not demonstrate that it is the Conservative party that is on the side of the home owner and aspiration, in stark contrast to the Labour party?

Wessex Route Study (Passenger Capacity) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (2 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: My right hon. Friend is making a very cogent case on the need for extra investment in the routes into Waterloo, but she should not forget the importance of linking large urban centres outside London. The Wessex capacity study talks, for example, about the routes between Portsmouth, Winchester and Basingstoke, and Portsmouth, Southampton and Poole. Those are important centres economically,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: NHS (Five Year Forward View) (1 Dec 2014)

Mark Hoban: I commend my right hon. Friend for securing £1 billion from the Chancellor to modernise primary care services. I know that the GPs in my constituency will welcome that, because they often cannot provide additional services due to capacity constraints. May I urge him to ensure that, when money is spent from the fund, it is linked to delivery in relation to the proposals set out by Simon...

NHS (Ttip): Universal Credit (25 Nov 2014)

Mark Hoban: I commend my right hon. Friend for the methodical way in which he is going about the implementation of universal credit. My constituents suffered from over-payments, under-payments and mis-payments under tax credits because Labour in government botched the implementation of the system by doing it as one big bang. We cannot afford the same thing to happen in this case. That is why he is...
